New Drop - Toy Pizza Hyper Eel vs. Combat Bugmen

Stuff sold out fast!  The Toy Pizza Hyper Eel vs. Combat Bugmen Drop saw the return and quick exit of some new figures and a few old ones, but you can still order some gorgeous and colorful Glyos figures.   Will we see even more soon? I hope so!  Until then, get some of these guys, support your indie toymakers and non-chain toy stores, and let's hope things get a whole more boring in the neat future.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Phaseon Renegade Hybrid Caliber

http://www.16bit.com/fotd/200331-glyos-phaseon-renegade-silver.shtmlI got a lot of Glyos figures. I don't need more of them - but the Onell Design crew finds interesting ways to make multiple purchases interesting. This Phaseon Renegade Hybrid Caliber takes the very early odd ball Beanbot mold - which was tweaked to be a Phaseon - and transforms it yet again with parts from Phase Arm upgrade sets, a newly-tooled head, plus a new cloth cape which was also used with the Onell Design Glyos Gobon Renegade Hunter [FOTD #2,127] and a few other figures. The new head and cloth piece were designed to work in multiple configurations on multiple bodies, which is sort of the entire brilliance of this whole line. One small piece can give you a handful of new build options.

Healey Made Raider (Commander) Available Now

The very cool Healey Made Raider (Commander) is available now!  This 3 3/4-inch Glyos-compatible action figure is $25.  I have one of the previous releases and it's one of my favorites.

Review: Onell Design Lost Sincrodrone Beta

This Lost Sincrodrone Beta arrived on a particularly cold day - and that's important. Early Glyos releases sometimes needed to be warmed a bit so the plastic had a bit more "give" to it so you could swap parts - and this new set of parts requires some heat. I had to dip the lower torso in warm water so the legs could be inserted. The body block piece is very tight, and fitting stuff in there is initially difficult - but not impossible, if you've got a cup of boiling water.[ READ THE FULL REVIEW ]

Review: Toy Pizza Zoner Capsule Silver Vehicle Mode

When the pre-order went live for the Zoner Capsule Silver Vehicle Mode I figured it'd be a good purchase - and then forgot I ordered it. The previous Regen Capsule [FOTD #2,114] was a nifty nod to things like the Micronauts Pharoid and the C-3PO carry case, but the new one goes a bit farther. You can open it at the hinged joint to store a figure, or lay it on its belly for a vehicle mode. There's more going on here - it hints at moai styling while also recalling bits and pieces of vehicles like the Batmobile. There's a lot going on here - including a fully-detailed interior with a monitor and various buttons that are clearly modeled after the Kenner Power Droid "face" of old. The two-mode toy owes a lot to Mattel's Hot Wheels Zombot [FOTD #803] - it can be two things, depending on how you orient it on your shelf. This is a toy for toy fans.

Review: Cappy Space x Nemo's Factory x Cappy Space C-Ps&Qs

 This is a gem. C-Ps&Qs was a D-Con 2019 debut which sold online later, and made use of the Nemo's Factory figure mold to make a gold robot that looks like another famous gold robot - sort of. The alternate heads are also nice - and you get three in all.
