Knighty-Glyknight Glyos Figure Preview
The always affable and persistently punctual Onell Design posted a preview called Order of the Glyknights showing off three new figures - with capes - in a stunning diorama setting.  According to previous comments from Matt Doughty, we should expect the capes to be included and these are just some of the nifty new things going up Thursday night.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Neo Granthan Rocker

Onell Design Glyos Neo Granthan Rocker Action FigureWith monthly drops and all sorts of gorgeous figures, it's easy to get lost in the output of Onell Design and the related Glyos family. We're now seeing over 100 figures per year, which puts this family above even Star Wars in terms of sheer variety. The nifty Neo Granthan Rocker is made of 29 pieces, all of which come from existing toys specially (and heavily) painted to look like Rocksteady of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fame. He might look like a familiar face - the color scheme and head deco recall a popular character from a comic book, TV show, movie, video game, and so on. But who? Obviously it's not Rocksteady - it's just an armored dinosaur figure with paint that makes you think vaguely of the rhino mutant from the classic cartoon series. By now you've no doubt seen a few reviews of the Neo Granthan figures and the Armorvors from which they were born, so know that this is a plussed up version of those sturdy, nifty figures.

June 29: Onell Design Drop
Onell Design announced "Crossed Swords," a post in which we are told to expect... something... June 29, 2017 at 9:30 PM Eastern.  It looks like the Varteryx may be present, but will there be crossovers?  Or Noboto?   Or Gobons?   We don't know!  More as we have it.

Review: Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Mystron Action Figure

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Mystron Action FigureWas he sent here by the devil? No good sir, Cosmic Radiation Mystron's on the level. The same figure mold is back for another go-round, this time in glow plastic with silver highlights. Do we need this? No... but yes.  It glows, it's awesome.

Outer Space Men Coming in July - Cosmic Radiation Electron+

The first Monday in July! Apparently that's July 7, and you will have a crack at glow-in-the-dark Cosmic Radiation Electron+, so says the official Instagram. You don't need me to tell you this, but it is pretty fantastic and glows a smidgen more brightly than the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Alpha Phase Electron+. It will probably be around $20.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Neo Granthan Skaterriun Mimic

Onell Design Glyos Neo Granthan Skaterriun Mimic Action FigureRefugees from the past! Standing about 3-inches tall, a Neo Granthan Skaterriun Mimic is named for Matt Doughty's elusive "Skate Wars" concept that he whipped up in the 7th grade. The sci-fi military figures looked pretty cool, and the Sketerriun figures are a nod to it. As usual, the nifty new color schemes got applied to many of the figures in the Onell Design catalog including the lovely Armorvor/Neo Granthan buck. It's good.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Aurustell Elite Armorvor

Onell Design Glyos Aurustell Elite Armorvor Action FigureSometimes things stay unfinished for a while, like this look at the Aurustell Elite Armorvor. I shot these pictures over four years ago when it showed up in the mail, but I'm only just now getting around to writing about it. This is a shame, because it's a good one. The Armorvor (and later Neo Granthan) mold has since come out in dozens of flavors, but I think this is the only golden one so far. (There is also a bronze one.)
