3A WWRp Rumble in the Jungle   Leave a comment

3A deliveries are the best.  The new portable Dropcloth is insane.  They managed to replicate the 1/6 bot at half the size perfectly, to a fault.  The hands are really too delicate to hold the weapons, so I added a pin to the right palm that hooks into the weapon handles like on Gundam kits.

3A Nightwatch NOM Commander and Heavy Bramble Wallpaper   Leave a comment

I made this image using photos from my own collection and my 3A NW NOM Commander and Heavy Bramble, which I have really been enjoying lately.  After the fold are hi-res versions for 1920 and 1680-width monitors for your wallpaper use, if you are interested.

New Things- Pheyaos Man!   Leave a comment

I had the wonderful privilege of getting to see the place where Matt Doughty works his magic at his house, Glyos HQ.  He had plenty of cool thing to show me, and wouldn’t let me leave without a few cool things for upcoming projects (and a hint of things to come).  Front and center was my getting to see the entire box full of the first Onell release of the Pheyaos Man, and getting to pick mine up early.  I know people have been just going mad waiting for this release after seeing the sculpt used in a few Japanese releases so far, and I can say with complete certainty that it is worth the wait.  The only disappointed people are going to be the ones who cannot grab one, but I have been assured that more are forthcoming and Matt is going to do everything he can to make people happy.  The Pheyaos head sculpt perfectly blends RxH’s Mutant Chaos with Glyos’s Pheyden, as Chaos absorbs some of Pheyden’s power and essence.  Anyone who’s seen my previous posts will know that I love the Adult Chaos body, and with the amazing paint work by Goto-san, the whole figure comes together under the head sculpt beyond all expectations.  I’ll be reviewing the Pheyaos vinyls, and plan on having the Pheyaos Man review up on the night of the release.

There’s also a pair of teasers here for upcoming customs.  One is a Mutant Evil custom I am almost done with, just need to finish some small details.  The other is a custom Chaos Glyos figure I got to assemble at Glyos HQ, with resin Chaos arm and head that were flawed and unusable from the recent Custom Corps.  I am planning on painting this guy similar to the Pheyaos Man with some fading between a Chaos figure of mine (not sure which yet) and a recognizable Glyos figure scheme.

I also recently published a review of the 3A Toys WWRP Bramble over on CollectionDX:

UPDATE: I just published my Pheyaos Man review for CDX:

If you’re into Glyos, don’t sleep on this release.

I am going to be covering all of the 3A Toys I receive for CollectionDX as I get them, next up will be the Portable Berties, hopefully going up before they are all sold out from retailers, so people can actually read a review when looking at buying them.
