Glyos Onell Design December 16 2019 Drop Menu

Wave 85! Venjorun's Back! Halloween-themed colors and a cyborg wolf are just some of the gems this time around. I was particularly taken by the clear red and orange figures that reminded me of the Adventure People Octopus. Click here to see the December 16 2019 Onell Design drop menu.

Glyos Black Friday 2019 Round-Up

In addition to the Bluestar Outer Space Men, quite a few new Glyos figures are up for ordering.

The painted $25 Shadow Raider is already sold out, but the green $20 Chlorophyll Raider is still available. The legend is the Healey Made team contacted an old Kenner sculptor to make a wholly new character for you sci-fi 3 3/4-inch toy fans.  Click here to check the store for availability.  Other than a blue proto version which sold quickly, these may be some of the first painted releases.

Over at The Yetee, Chakan the Forever Man - Black Friday version is up.  He's $22.  Click here for the store, which also has Gradius records and some other gems I didn't know about until recently.

Toy Pizza has some Thanksgiving (D-Con) leftovers! If you missed recent releases and convention exclusives, now is the time to check out their shop.

The Outer Space Men - Bluestar Blue Glow Figures Live Now!
As of now we don't know how many glow-in-the-dark Bluestar Outer Space Men figures will be ran, but the first four are in the shop now.  Astro-Nautilus, Inferno, Metamorpho, and Xodiac were the first four figures ran in 2010 - and now they're the first four blue figures!  Check availability here.  They're $25.00 each.

Nemo's Factory Droids at D-Con, In Store Now
If you are going to D-Con, Anaheim's Designer Con, this weekend be sure to stop by booth #3028 to see Cappy Space.  You can pick up CPs&Qs AV Robot or R-Toolio there, or order it on this web site right here.  These are Glyos-compatible figures and mix with The Outer Space Men as well as those 3 3/4-inch My Hero Academia figures you see at the GameStop.  They look pretty sharp.

CPs&Qs AV Robot is a gold recolor of the Nemo's Factory AV Robot, while R-Toolio is a clever redeco of the Onell Design Hub set.

New Callgrim? Meet Grimpool!'s been a few years, but RawShark Studios has a new figure!  Grimpool is in the store now, and is probably going to D-Con in 10 days too. Be there, or don't.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Armorvor Kugarrec Onell Design

Onell Design Glyos Armorvor Kugarrec Action FigureAnother nod to a classic and rare action figure, Armorvor Kugarrec hit as part of a trio of new creatures near the end of September. And it's good. Our new pal evokes a classic figure from the Laser Beasts range known in English as "Scope Cougar," named after the game early 20-something toy collectors do at Target at toy runs. And now that I have alienated all of you, I can just gush about this one.

Stratum AV RobotCappy Space wrote in to let us know The Cappy Space Bazaar will be back with a new drop at 12:00 PM PST on November 14.  3 new figures will be up for grabs!

A secret mailing went out detailing new and upcoming figures for this drop and D-Con... and let me tell you, there are some gems you're going to want to get.  Click here for the old store and be sure to check it out November 14.

Review: Plastic Imagination Rise of the Beasts Rhino and Scorpion - Blue and Green Glow

Plastic Imagination Rise of the Beasts Rhino and Scorpion - Blue and Green Glow Action Figures SetA surprise! In June 2019 I got a message from Jon "Little Rubber Guys" Karis with glow in the dark blue and green versions of his Rhinoceros and Scorpion figures. No names, no dates, just a surprise - and of course, I immediately had to photograph them for a review in the future. I shot Rhino and Scorpion - Blue and Green Glow individually, and it turns out they'd be a four-pack. Ah well.

AFOTM and Crowdfunding New Toy Pizza Figures - Sub City Supply Drop

The Yetee Has Glow in the Dark Chakan

 If you haven't yet seen it, The Yetee has an exclusive Glow in the Dark Glyos-compatible Chakan the Forever Man.  It's $22.

A fully-painted Sega Genesis version is also available.

Coming next week! Stay tuned to Onell Design on November 7.  At 9:30 PM EST, you can pick up something or other from Halkenn's Grave.  We know the Armorvor dragon will return thanks to a reveal at New York Comic Con, but what else?  Could be anything!  Stay tuned for more there.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Armorvor Neo Wyverillian

Onell Design Glyos Armorvor Neo Wyverillian Action FigureAlong with the Kugarrec and Arthrodak flavors, the Armorvor Neo Wyverillian dropped three new heads on us all at once - which is kind of stunning, given the Armorvor has only been a Wolf and Neo-Granthan for the last 8 years. Due to Matt Doughty's hesitance to waste anything, this figure is particularly curious - the dragon head is painted grey plastic, and the wings are molded in red plastic. What other parts are hiding out there for future release?

Review: Onell Design Glyos Skullboto Soldier

Onell Design Glyos Skullboto Soldier Action FigureOnell Design figures cosplay like nobody's business, and the fantastic Skullboto Soldier is probably a nod to a specific toy I just can't place. The classic Noboto form has been augmented with a skull-like head paint application, complete with a crack in the skull and slightly obscured-by-the-collar teeth you can see when you pop off the head, or scroll down a bit. What's more, a vampire-like set of fangs on the Quallerran head let you make a monster if you dare. As usual, you have excellent options here.

Cappy Space - A New Official Glyos Store Packed with Unique Colorways
Cappy Space Bazaar is a new-to-me store run by Glyos superfan Cappy, who has been tracking Crayboth info on the boards for years.  He reached out to tell us that not only did he have a few exclusive figures last year, and now he has a store with a lot of exclusive figures.

If you're new to Glyos and want to try a lot of varieties with one shipping charge, check out his store.  This is a good place to start or to get building.  There are no exclusive-to-this-store molds, but there are lots of really cool colorways here and a $16 Bio-Mass Monster is a pretty fantastic price.

Sign-ups last through October 22 in one- and twelve-month intervals.  Click here and it's $30 for 1 month or $240 for 12 months.  Early figure prototypes and concepts are shown, and I have to say this is a very exciting batch.  Last year's were good, but these seem a bit better.

Review: Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Zero Gravity Action Figure

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Zero Gravity Action Figure
I have enjoyed the Cosmic Radiation Zero Gravity figure, but it's wildly inessential. Regular Zero Gravity [FOTD #2,041] already glows in the dark and for $5 more has a cardback and a more interesting paint job. The Infinity version has a preposterously detailed human head, thanks in part to some of the best paint you'll see on a human head the size of a peanut. Commander Comet is often similarly as good - you can't not be impressed by it.

Review: Toy Pizza Rift Killer Cola Action Figure

Toy Pizza Rift Killer Cola Action FigureI don't own too many Toy Pizza figures, but I like the 3 3/4-inch figures a bunch. The Rift Killer Cola Action Figure enough to want the mold again - cola-colored clear brown plastic is wrapped in silver, red, and a couple of shades of blue that may recall Pepsi and RC Cola packaging. It also provides a nice counterbalance to the Nuka T-51 Power Armor [FOTD #2,061] as far as continuing the cola wars goes.

Bluestar Outer Space Men Coming around Black Friday
Coming soon: If you're a toy collector of a certain age, "Blue Stars" hold a certain meaning for you - and now it can hold new meaning with the Outer Space Men Bluestar Series revealed on Instagram. Glow in the Dark Blue Astro-Nautilus, Xodiac, and Inferno were teased - and the packaging is gorgeous.  (Gary and Mel, t-shirts please.)

These are expected around Black Friday.

Blue and Glow Rise of the Beasts on September 28
Via Little Rubber Guys: ROTB - Rhino and Scorpion - Green and Blue Glow Set!

I got early samples of these and they're superb.  Blue and green Scorpion and Rhino figures turned out very well, but most importantly, they're dirt cheap.  It's $20 for a set of 4 - a veritable bargain by Glyos standards these days.

Bookmark the store - they go up for sale September 28 at 12:00 PM Pacific Time.

Onell Design Brings Back Armorvor with More Heads on Sunday
New from Onell Design: Savage Cybernetics!

Not one but three heads are teased for what seems like (is) the Armorvor silhouette.  This is exciting.  Also, wings.   How many varieties will there be? No idea - but probably a few.  I'm in.

Set your clocks for Sunday, September 22 at 9:30 PM Eastern.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Gobon Renegade Hunter

Onell Design Glyos Gobon Renegade Hunter Action FigureI'm kind of amazed that the Gobon Renegade Hunter exists as a production figure. Custom Corps figures were shown in 2010 - it seemed almost unthinkable that one would actually get mass-produced for all of us, and here we are. For "existing figure with new parts," this upgraded Gobon is a pretty good deal. I have had this mold in other colors for a while and reissuing silver totally makes sense. (I would also like to see more clear ones.) The construction is the same as it ever was, with removable feet, hands, arms, legs, a 3-piece body, and 2 heads... plus a bonus head this time. You have five faces from which to choose with this release, meaning if you only buy one Gobon mold it may as well be this one.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Rift Renegade Construct

Onell Design Glyos Rift Renegade Construct Action FigureAs part of the twelfth anniversary drop, this Rift Renegade Construct does a good job delivering on the promise of Glyos. Figures usually come with a set array of parts - there are alternate heads or limbs, or weapons, or bonus packs a figure might usually get. For this one, we got a Rift Killer figure with bonus Device Ninja parts and the end result is unsurprisingly great. Having all the parts in one bag tends to change the general feel of the figure - especially if you're the kind of person who keeps parts of the original figure together. It's all the original figure, providing the obsessive with more display options.

Review: Toy Pizza Forest Capsule Carrying Case

Toy Pizza Forest Capsule Carrying CaseI already had one in chrome, but I had to get the Forest Capsule Carrying Case too - I wanted one that didn't show fingerprints as easily as the Regen Capsule [FOTD #2,114]. It's a wonderfully simple toy, with a design that is a pastiche of the Knights of the Slice figure, the various Pharoids and related Micronauts capsule, and a hint of Kenner carrying case. As a toy, it's not terribly interesting unless you want to futz with the six Glyos ports, or are fidgety, or like putting things inside of other things. I like all of this, so I found this to be very exciting.

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Spaced Out Design Drop Friday at 9:00 PM Eastern

Review: TheGodBeast Cerulestar Nemesis Action Figure

TheGodBeast Cerulestar Nemesis Action FigureI snagged the blue glow-in-the-dark Cerulestar Nemesis from TheGodBeast and it was the very first officially released blue glow Glyos-compatible action figure, along with Kabuto Mushi. I had not previously snagged a Nemesis (I still want to get green glow) - so this seemed like a good place to get one. The translucent coloring has blue and white painted highlights that are very nouveau Boo Berry, which is amusing as Marty's "Cereal Monster" colored figures look a bit different than this one.
