Review: Onell Design Glyos Piloden - Mystery Figure from February 2018 Drop


Onell Design Glyos Piloden Action FigureIf you love Adventure People, Onell Design shows you their love with Piloden! This one is an interesting take on something that could have been a straight redeco. The original Adventure People Alpha Pilot (in grey) used the Alpha Star Pilot's body, but cast it in grey. Onell Design paid homage to this figure last year, but this new one has a different head - Pheyden's. They also did some snappy things with the paint that continue to make me think Onell Design can do literally anything at this point.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Copper Crayboth


Onell Design Glyos Copper Crayboth Action FigureAnother freebie! The Copper Crayboth you see here came in a box in 2018 - but it looks a lot like a picture of the Sendollest Crayboth from 2015 which I don't (think I) have. There aren't a lot of comparison photos of these things out there, so this could be that one - and if it is, I'll correct this in the future.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Alphaden


Onell Design Glyos Alphaden Action FigureThe 2017 (and so far, 2018) Onell Design Mystery figures have been thematically based on Adventure People Space figures of old. Alphaden was decorated to vaguely match the pilots of the Alpha Probe vehicle, complete with variant hair coloring.

Review: Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Xodiac Action Figure

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Xodiac Action FigureFor a toy line that has proven popular, The Outer Space Men captures the imagination with strange designs. Like this one. The Cosmic Radiation Xodiac is the second Xodiac figure to have a beard, so I reached out to series designer Mel Birnkrant to ask what the deal was with the beard - is it meat? Is it hair? "It's both!" He told me - hey, that works.
