Review: Onell Design Glyos Phanoid

Onell Design Glyos Phanoid Action FigureA tribute! Standing about 3-inches tall, Phanoid is the next in this year's series of ongoing tributes to Fisher-Price's surprisingly wonderful Adventure People 3 3/4-inch action figure line. The genius of it was that it was packed with mundane normal then-modern Earth stuff, plus it had a swell space line partially made up of mixing and matching parts from said mundane line in wacky colors to create the likes of X-Ray Man and Clawtron. It was a great example of how you could make something new out of a recolor that doesn't generally feel like the original.

Reviews: Bit Figs Mega Bit Pheyden Flesh Set

Bit Figs Mega Bit Pheyden Flesh Set Mini FiguresI am a huge, huge sucker for M.U.S.C.L.E.-style mini figures. Huge. So I when I saw the Mega Bit Pheyden Flesh Set I was sitting here asking if I needed to buy yet another set of these guys. After realizing I still had to order that Copper Tape from Flying Vipers and a couple of t-shirts, the answer was a fast "yes." Once I'm paying shipping, all bets are off - if you sell music and band shirts drawn by Matt Doughty - in my size, no less? I'm going to give you my business. So here we are, more figures I don't need, but do want.

Review: Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Astro-Nautilus

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Astro-Nautilus Action FigureI don't know how many of you know how these reviews work, but to do one every day I have to basically set them up like an assembly line and do them weeks - sometimes months - in advance. This Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Astro-Nautilus comes out tonight, and getting it shot, reviewed, and up this quickly can be a trouble. (Heck, this intro? Wrote it when the figure was still in the mail.) That's one of the good and bad things about reviewing toys - on one hand, I know what kind of quality to expect from this ongoing line as the actual manifestation rarely disappoints. It also speaks of a certain homogeny that creeps in to even the best indie line - eventually I can tell you what a figure will be before it even arrives. The Astro-Nautilus mold is an awesome, creative design that is one of my favorites. The glow plastic from the Glyos factory is second to none, resulting in some of the brightest glowing figures you can buy today. I haven't even held the figure in my hands yet, and I'm perfectly comfortable telling you that fans of glow and this design are going to want it and should buy it along with whatever other glow figures are in the store that you don't have yet. Scary, eh? Anyway, let's open the bag.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Glyarmor Cytechion DX

Onell Design Glyos Glyarmor Cytechion DX Action FigureFancy! Onell Design posted that they were aiming to do fancier paint jobs more in line with The Outer Space Men, and they got it. Standing about 3-inches tall, Glyarmor Cytechion DX is expensive but there's a lot of action here. The figure is molded in the same clear green plastic as Rayexx [FOTD #1,665], but with layers of paint. Many layers. There's a creamy yellow layer, metallic gold, and some grey - plus a few places for the green to peer through.
