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.

‘Heavy’ Phanost Onell/Glyos   Leave a comment

The Glyos series is the brainchild of Matt Doughty, founder of Onell Designs, a small toy company dedicated to making some of the most fun and unique toys on the planet.  Inspired by his childhood love of Micronauts and all things fun, Glyos toys are ~2″ tall PVC figures with completely interchangeable parts and a variety of designs, allowing you to make just about anything you can imagine.  The build-toy aspects of Glyos are really just amazing, but my favorite part comes down to making awesome character figures to match the great character versions Matt has already come up with.  This custom was based around a special light-grey Phanost head I received as a bonus in one of my orders, for which I built and painted a special body.  We have recently been shown, in the awesome 8-bit style Passcodes Matt produces, some of the origin of the Phanosts, and while I won’t spoil anything, I will say that they are quite powerful.  My thinking with this custom was that a Phanost had been captured and experimented on (maybe by the Sincroids?), so I used some Buildman body parts, since the Buildmen are interchangeable mechanical bodies used by everybody in Glyos.  Upgraded with Phase Armor and a heavy Gobon Cannon, this Phanost escaped his captors with his new, more powerful body, and means business.

Onell Glyos Customs- Phanost Corps   Leave a comment

Standard Phanost was my first character Glyos figure, and a NYCC09 exclusive.  The black and GID combo got me, and with the advent of the Build Station offerings of all black Buildmen for building with, as well as GID and Black Phase Arms, I decided to make Phanost some troops!  The body types are inspired by other customs I’ve seen, with some improvements of my own based on the parts I had available.  I also made a jetpack and heavy cannon for Phanost so that he can keep up!  Hopefully the black Buildmen will come back in stock so I can make some more troops.
