Club Zeton - The Robo Force Fan Club
UPDATE: Live now! Click here to sign up.

If you love Robo Force, you need to go read up on Club Zeton.  This is the new Robo Force Fan Club from Toyfinity.

There's a big post about it, but here are the notes:
- It's $75.00
- 100 subscribers are needed to make it happen
- You get at least 2 exclusive figures for that $75
- You get first crack at all figures, plus the option to get your Ultimate Editions with (or without) detail lines as an exclusive club perk
- Also upgrade stickers, membership cards, discounts on unpainted figures, and other stuff

It comes with a ton of stuff which for $75 seems to be about right.  Test shots of new figures tend to go for a lot more, so go give it a look!

New Rise of the Beasts Live Now - Green Drop
It's live!  The Little Rubber Guys store has a new drop of 4 Rise of the Beasts figures!

Unpainted figures are $4.00, painted (pictured) are $7.00.  The drop is earlier than planned, as I managed to request/beg for early samples and let me tell you - they're great.  You'll see a review here next week but if you can't wait, go ahead and grab some painted guys while you can.   They're pretty fantastic!

Knights of the Slice - Toy Pizza Glyos Action Figures?
Toy Pizza is an online show hosted by some of the biggest toy fans including your pal and mine Jesse DeStasio, formerly of all kinds of good things. They have a great Tumblr and apparently that isn't enough - because they're doing a toy line on Kickstarter!

Multiple figures are being planned with plenty of stretch goals, but a note came up that may interest you guys - they may be be Glyos compatible.

$20 is the lowest pledge to get the figure (left) and other colors of this pizza Power Rangers-y line can be had, as can accessory packs and other goodies.  The Glyos part doesn't seem finalized by the posts I'm reading, but if nothing else these are neat figures from nice guys that you'll probably want to see anyway.  Because really, how many pizza-based action heroes do you own anyway?

Review: Maxx Zero Basic Edition from Robo Force

ToyFinity Robo Force Basic Edition Action FigureThe Maxx Zero Basic Edition is the Robo Force figure I had pictured when I first heard that this license got picked up. Now that the figure has decorated eyes an a colorful chest panel, he really comes to life - but he also has black tube arms, painted tire treads, and a few blue highlights. It's not as much paint as the Ultimate Edition at twice the price, but that's OK - I wanted to not spend twice the price and I'm happy with this tubby little guy. The 3-inch action figure is solid, heavy, and ultimately satisfying in a way that may hurt sales of future products - it's hard to imagine a better take on this mold. I'm sure they'll manage, but it's so impressive that I totally dig it.

New Figure - Mystical Warriors of the Ring on 1/27
I just got a press release stating that Evolution Goliath goes on sale 1/27 for $6.00! Cheep.  The metallic green figure can be dismantled and was designed to work best with Armorvor and Kabuto Mushi action figures. 

 Be ready at 12:00 noon Central time.

Sunday Onell Design Release - Mission Details
Click here to see the (mostly) complete menu from Onell Design's Sunday release.  3 items are xxxed out so those, I assume, are the new Armorvors but we don't know for sure yet.  The new Sarvos is particularly nice, so be sure to check this out!

New Glyos Next Sunday - Redlaw Purple, Armorvor Too?
In the post "Redlaw Effect," Onell Design confirms a new release of figures scheduled for Sunday January 25 at 9:30 PM Eastern.

Other than the Redlaw Argen (pictured) nothing has been explicitly confirmed yet, but it looks like the Armorvor might be back - and if you'll recall, we were promised a new head for the next release.  Here's hoping!

Rise of the Beasts: Four New Figures Coming
Good news, everyone! Over on Instagram, New Rise of the Beasts 3D printouts are there for the seeing.

A horned lizard (shown) looks incredible alongside an ant, a lion, and an ape.  No release date has been listed, but fear not - a new, green drop of the rhino and scorpion are due soon and they're pretty dang fantastic. (Also, sitting on my desk.)   Stay tuned for more, including weapons!

Review: Onell Design Glyos Crayboth Cultivator Action Figure

Onell Design Glyos Crayboth Cultivator Action FigureThe Crayboth Cultivator is one of a ton of new and seemingly exclusive to Crayboth figure colors put out by Onell Design last year. Normally we'd get one or two per wave, but we ended up with batches of the things with a surprisingly large amount of the little crab aliens.

Review: Plastic Imagination Rise of the Beasts Rhinoceros - Silver Mail-Away Redemption

Plastic Imagination Rise of the Beasts Rhinoceros - Silver Mail-Away Redemption Action FigureO nameless beast, from you we can know the great secret of the universe! Maybe not - but I will say that the Rhinoceros - Silver Mail-Away Redemption is a low-run mail-in freebie cast in metallic black PVC and painted exceptionally well. He has no name of his own, and the figure itself is basically the grey painted one with silver swapped out - and man, is it pretty. I work mostly in a basement so it's darker down here and the silver positively glows. The reflective paint looks sharp.
