Review: Toy Pizza Regen Capsule Carrying Case with Lime Material Boy Action Figure

Toy Pizza Regen Capsule Carrying Case with Lime Material Boy Action FiguresI spied the Regen Capsule Carrying Case with Lime Material Boy from Toy Pizza on eBay before it was announced that it existed or would go for sale and had one of those weird, visceral reactions for no good reason. I had to have it. It looks sort of like a cross between the Micronauts Pharoid and the Kenner C-3PO carry case. We've had hundreds - perhaps even thousands - of Glyos-compatible PVC figures as well as soft vinyl figures and vehicle-like figures, but those weird, useless accessories are far and few between. All of these things are basically boxes in which to cram figures, with the Micronauts one being fairly useless with storage for one figure. You could cram two, maybe three figures if dismembered into this Regen Capsule. Kenner's cases could hold an army - but are probably a wee bit expensive to make today while not being particularly useful.

Celebrate 12 Years of Glyos on Sunday with a New Drop

A new wave! Ruthless Restorations over at Onell Design confirms a new batch of Gobons (and pals) will hit Sunday, July 28, at 9:30 PM.

A load of hints are in the comments, including a nod to a figure I revealed in San Diego last week. I think. I could be wrong.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Spectre Armorvor MK II Action Figure

Onell Design Glyos Spectre Armorvor MK II Action FigureI was going through my archives and it seems the last time this mold was released was 2017! I've still got a few of these to review - this Spectre Armorvor MK II has been sitting bagged on my desk for quite some time. I was planning on doing another "Glow in the Dark Week" but that's unlikely - so it seemed now was the right time to open this one.

Review: Onell Design Glyos OSM Colossus Rex Tyraxsis

Onell Design Glyos OSM Colossus Rex Tyraxsis Action FigureCrossovers are far and few between in this line - cosmically speaking, anyway - as it has been nearly eight months since the last one. OSM Colossus Rex Tyraxsis must have been in the works for a long time, as I remember Matt Doughty of Onell Design talking about doing a special version back in 2011 - years before the figure even saw production for the first time - and I had no idea what he had planned for the mold. According to his notes, the Tyraxsis is a dinosaur-inspired colorway, and I see it - it looks like it would fit nearly any terrible lizard toy.

Toy Pizza Con Exclusives Mostly Sold Out

A few Toy Pizza Con exclusives are available in the Toy Pizza shop. Some sold out real quick - at press time the only one I see left is the pictured Forest Capsule.  (I have the chrome one, and love it.)

A few "second chance" items were also added and since sold - but you can get Metaruda, Old Knight Material Boy, and a few others while supplies last.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Enigma Fusion Pheyaos Enigma Fusion

Onell Design Glyos Enigma Fusion Pheyaos Enigma Fusion Action FigureI feel I am destined to lose the switch pin included with the Enigma Fusion Pheyaos Enigma Fusion. It's a tiny part and I have no real use for it - it's just there. Why Onell Design included this bonus piece with an amazing figure is beyond me - I can't do much with it here, and it doesn't make the already great figure even better.

Captain Cobrus Coming to Ohio Toy & Comic Show

If you aren't making it to San Diego this year - where there are no Glyos for sale that I know of (but possibly an interesting reveal) - you can hit up Fairborn for Captain Cobrus.  Check out Wizards of Wor on Instagram for all the details as they unravel.  There should be online sales after the show.
...I hope to get one of these.

Review: Outer Space Men White Star Zero Gravity Action Figure

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men White Star Zero Gravity Action FigureManufactured in 2018 but not released until June 2019, this Outer Space Men White Star Zero Gravity ticks a box. With it, your collection of white plastic figures to customize is completed! Probably. That makes for a stellar collection of 21 white-as-white-can-be figures, the irony of which is not lost with this character.

Review: Spaced Out Design Geodraxus Grannikor

Spaced Out Design Geodraxus Grannikor Action FigureI missed the first releases of this figure, but I dared not miss the grey-with-black-and-white-specks Geodraxus Grannikor. With 21 parts - including alternate head, a sword arm, and other moving bits - this is a figure which was clearly designed to last for several recolors. The clear figures look absolutely gorgeous in the online catalog photos, but they sell out quickly - they're doing nice work. This rocky granite-like figure was available and I had to snag it.
