Review: Onell Design Glyos Searsden

Onell Design Glyos Searsden Action FigureWhile a little darker than my original Kenner Sears Snaggletooth figures, the 2 3/4-inch Searsden looks like a distant cousin. The skin is lighter, the boots are silver, there's some red, the silver buckle is there on the belt, it has what it needs to have.

REVIEW: Onell Design Glyos Mutant Evolver Pheyaos Hyper Mordireus Fusion

Onell Design Glyos Mutant Evolver Pheyaos Hyper Mordireus Fusion Action FigureIf the 2 3/4-inch Mutant Evolver Pheyaos Hyper Mordireus Fusion looks familiar, it should! Onell Design and RealxHead have been conspiring together on figures for years, most of which sell out in 30 seconds and I've never really had a shot at them. The default head matches Pheyaos Mini and Pheyaos Man, with an all-new Glyos-compatible body that really does match the style of the RealxHead soft vinyl figures you missed and can't afford. A bonus face on the back of the head looks a little bit like the Chaos Trooper, but what truly amazed me was the color match of the plastic. If memory serves the first Mordireus Pink figures were sold in the December 12, 2012 drop with the likes of Sarvos and Crayboth and again in September 2013 with Noboto and Gobon.

New Drop - Toy Pizza Testudo Knight!

https://www.knightsoftheslice.com/The new Testudo Knight joins a couple of blank Material Boy figures and a had/pizza slicer set at the Toy Pizza shop.  If you need more Knights of the Slice, this TMNT-esque one is a keeper.

Review: Toy Pizza Mikros Set BLT Version Action Figures

Toy Pizza Mikros Set BLT Version Action FiguresI was very excited to get the Mikros Set BLT Version from Toy Pizza. Micronauts have been an influence on Onell Design and Glyos figures for years, and we've seen tributes both subtle and overt. This may be the most overt. Jesse DeStasio and friends took the classic Knights of the Slice figure, cast it in clear, painted the hands and feet white, added a chest tampo, and painted the heads silver. It turned out nicely - and I'm a little surprised we didn't see one of the other 3 3/4-inch The Other Space Men or Power Lords or other collections do it a few years ago. Now that they're here, it's worth noting they sold out very quickly and a second wave went up for pre-order about a week after for August delivery. That window is also now closed.
