Review: Onell Design Glyos Pheyden Frontier MKII

Onell Design Glyos Pheyden Frontier MKII Action FigureThe hero with many faces gets another face with Pheyden Frontier MKII. It's a pretty simple figure with extra deco - it's a Pheyden molded in white with thick paint on the legs, hands, and arms to replicate the molded plastic of the original figure that sold out ages ago. He doesn't have spare heads or anything, but it's a nice one nonetheless. It looks cool, which is a reason to buy it - the Onell Design crew came up with tons of great colorways back when they started, so it's nice to see them brought back for the newcomers or those who lacked the foresight to pick it up 8 years ago.

Glyos Onell Design October 20 2016 Drop Menu

TMNG! The turtliest drop of your dreams will no doubt get you into the Turtle Club with four green teens, a comic-inspired Crayboth figure, Shredder and Foot-inspired Glyninjas, a Shinobish Glyninjas, and a lot more await you. And it was popular enough to cause the shop to be closed to check inventory within a few minutes - at press time nothing is sold out and the store is closed. Click here to see the October 20 2016 Onell Design drop menu.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Crayboth Zekroyas

Onell Design Glyos Crayboth Zekroyas Action FigureThe trend to incorporate sidekick figures - or just apply the plastic and paint of one figure to another - is delightful. Crayboth Zekroyas is a tiny little crab guy, designed to match Alpha 7 Zekroyas [FOTD #1,535] from the same wave as well as a Quallerran, too.

Review: Bit Figs Mega Bit Pheyden Standard Set

Bit Figs Mega Bit Pheyden Standard Set Mini FigureI already bought one version of this mold, but a painted colorway of Mega Bit Pheyden - a Standard Set - seemed to be an essential purchase. (I'm also interested in a green "bad graphics" one and/or glow-in-the-dark someday.) Pheyden in Pheyden colors is an important thing to have, and this blocky one is nothing if not charming. If you got the Mega Bit Pheyden Trophy Set [FOTD #1,531] the figures offer little new other than changes in color, but they're good changes in color. In addition to these figures, an unpainted blue duo was also put up for sale.

Review: RawShark Studios The Order Bobaran Action Figure

The Order Bobaran Action FigureMade of aa couple of dozen parts, this figure is amazing if for no reason other than its color matching skills. The Order Bobaran's inspiration is baked in the colors, which RawShark Studios kingpin Jesse Moore somehow painstakingly matched or maybe he just blackmailed someone to get the Pantones perfect. It's based on the original mail-away (and retail) Kenner Boba Fett Star Wars action figures, a true classic and one of those things that's both an artifact of great mythological significance while oddly being a staple of millions of children's toy boxes almost 40 years ago. As an inspirational force behind Callgrim, it only makes sense that the character would be adapted to these original needs.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Gendrone Force Defender Villser Core

Onell Design Glyos Gendrone Force Defender Villser Core Action FigureOne of the things about Glyos that eventually gets to me is the names - I can't keep all of them straight. When I look at the Gendrone Force Defender Villser Core it impresses and delights me, while also terrifying me that I will never, ever remember what it is called. I think that has contributed to my lack-of-hardcoreness with the Glyos world as it goes on, mostly because there's so much great stuff, which I have bought and admire, but I can't actually talk about it without a crib sheet. It's a green take on the ToyFinity Robo Force mold, with some wonderful paint applicatins and a color that reacts in fun ways depending on how it's lit. It's also hefty, providing you with 41 pieces for $16.00 - and they're big pieces.
