ToyFinity Glow in the Dark Mordles Up Now
Assuming you're a Club Mordle member, you can order Geihoza, the giant Glow in the Dark Mordle for $16!  The vinyl figure is compatible with Onell Design vinyl Glyos figures, as it has removable feet.

While not Glyos-compatible, Geist Mordles are up too for a measly $10 per set.  Click here and log in to order yours - if you have a Club Mordle login, that is.  If not, it should be available to you in a few days if any remain.

Banimon Tank: March 2014?

Boris of Rocket North and Banimon fame dropped by the October Toys forums to lay down this gem of an update on his vinyl Tank toy:
"An update on the vinyl tank project: we are officially out of the prototyping phase and moving on to tooling. There are some new fit functions in addition to what we unveiled at NYCC (thanks to Matt!) but the basic aesthetic won't change that much. Right now I am told a March release is a realistic option, so we're shooting for that. Very excited to share this with everyone, gonna post some pics once the test shots start rolling in..."

Kabuto Mushi Menu Reveal? Maybe!

While it's important to say that everything is subject to change, it looks like this post on October Toys' Forums shows that the new Kabuto Mushi figures by The Godbeast may be a mere $10 per.  And there will also be a bag of little rubber Mini Mushis for a mere $8.

The same red you've seen from Onell and ToyFinity will be included, as will other new colors and the always popular and customizable clear colorless plastic.

I'm interested! They look great from the artwork, I can't wait to see the final product!

Hun-Dred Revealed for Robo Force
The ToyFinity blog posted Hun-Dred the Conquerer, in red! So that's easy to remember. The figure matches the Onell Design metallic, pearly color just released a few days ago.  It's quite nice - and will probably make this new Robo Force figure sell out even faster.

Review: Banimon Red Army Muscle Men

Banimon Red Army Muscle Men Action FigureI've been trying to cut back on some recolors, but the Banimon Red Army Muscle Men were impossible to resist. They're roughly the same size and color as OMFG figures, which come out of the same factory. The unpainted pink figure has all the same parts as the previous release, with one big exception - the robot "face" has a large peg nose which is now removable. Assuming we ever get more Glyos-compatible nose pieces, you're in for a bunch of fun here.

Robo Force Enemy the Dictator Coming

Most likely part of this week's drop (and with colors to match the latest batch of Onell Design toys), ToyFinity teased Enemy the Dictator today! And that's about all they showed... so click through for more, but that's pretty much it.

Review: October Toys OTMFG Zombie Pheyden Mini-Figure

October Toys OTMFG Zombie Pheyden Mini-FigureMine came for free from Kickstarter. Fun fact - Zombie Pheyden, based on Matt Doughty's Glyos figure Pheyden, was shown at Comic-Con a couple of years back as part of Z.O.M.B.I.E. series 2. For whatever reason the series was sadly abandoned, but its most shining star was saved from oblivion earlier this year. The 2 1/8-inch figure comes up to a Glyos Pheyden figure's shoulders, and has no articulation.

Review: Glyos Dark Traveler Rift Breaker

Onell Design Glyos Dark Traveler Rift Breaker Action FigureI snagged the Dark Traveler Rift Breaker because of the nifty color and the (at the time) new head sculpt - it was later revealed that grey heads for the Dark Traveler were made and are sneaking out in some new orders, but at this time I sadly do not have one - but I do have this one! I like this figure a bunch, I shot it back in September and I don't know why I didn't finish it up sooner. It's pretty beautiful, and the color is strikingly different from Onell Design's "Voss" green and their 2013 Neo Phase green.

Review: NiStuff 481 Universe Zeta Force Dig Crew Action Figure

NiStuff 481 Universe Zeta Force Dig Crew Action FigureIt's amazing how a little paint and reconfiguring can make a good figure into a dud, or into something really swell. The Zeta Force Dig Crew is swell. Initially sold at New York Comic Con (and sold online the same day, kudos Mr. Merz) this figure is cast in a silvery plastic with some metallic blue pieces. Green highlights on the ankles, shoulders, and ribs can be easily seen with red eyes and a green skullcap if you pop off the helmet.

Glyos Onell Design December 1 2013 Drop Menu

And here it is! Click here to see the December 2 2013 Onell Design drop menu.  The Ecroyex Initiative!

No new molds today, but there's a swell Syclodoc that sold out pretty much immediately.  The surprises were a pair of orange figures - Noboto and Crayboth - and a generally swell selection of parts and pieces, including another fine Sarvos.

There are more indie releases coming - the Four Horsemen will have new Power Soliders on December 2, and more Mordles are expected as well.  Stay tuned!
