Review: RealxHead Stryker Lock Mohawk

RealxHead Stryker Lock Mohawk Vinyl FigureHaving been following Glyos lightly since shortly after its inception and paying close-ish attention since 2010, I know RealxHead products don't come up much. Mori is a guy who makes low-run, hand-painted and assembled vinyl figures in tiny batches sold mostly through actual physical stores. This means you most likely aren't going to get them. The runs he does are small, and based on the numbers I saw in the carts on launch day Stryker Lock Mohawk sold through in under two minutes. You could still add units to your cart for somewhere under 120 seconds, and that's it - when I checked inventory it was down to double digits quite quickly, which prompted an announcement for a possible fourth run. (This would be the second US shot at the figures.) These products come and go quickly, and their hand-made low-run nature inspires the awed, hushed tones that make them something of the toy equivalent of cryptozoology.

Skeleton Warriors - First Batch In Stock Now
If you missed out on the Kickstarter, the 5-inch Glyos-compatible super-articulated Skeleton Warriors are up for grabs at October Toys now.   Baron Dark (left) is boxed and $20.  Unpainted Titan Skeleton and Glow Titan Skeleton are each $10.  They're really good, especially the $10 ones - I'm working on a review right now, so get yours and play along at home.

RealxHead Onell Design April 15 2015 Drop Menu

Return of RealxHead! I got my order in for a figure, and it was still possible to add these to a cart for about 2 minutes after they first popped up. Click here to see the May 15 2015 Onell Design drop menu.

As far as I can tell, the drop seems to be somewhere in the lower double digits.   This post outlines that a second run is likely - and that this was the biggest run ever.  And it still sold out in 2 minutes.  Wow!

Review: Onell Design Glyos Neo Granthan Pyrotellica Action Figure

Onell Design Glyos Neo Granthan Pyrotellica Action FigureClear with more paint! The Neo Granthan Pyrotellica is an orange release that looks like it probably owes a little bit - OK, a lot - to Micronauts. The previous Armorvor toys have rarely been clear, and those that have only had a tiny bit of paint. This is the first one to have painted faces on clear plastic, making it unique for a variety of reasons beyond merely being a new color with a newish head sculpt. Seemingly fans didn't jump on this one, because it didn't sell out quickly and actually stuck around along with his brothers beyond the point that the orders actually began to show up. It's still available as of my writing this, which is odd for a generally popular mold.
