WORKING FORWARD TO YEAR 8
TIME TO BUILD TIME TO PLAY
GLYOS IS LIVING LONG AND LIVING STRONG
An official build that's asymmetrical is uncommon, but this looks good.
Anyone who wants can also preorder Skeleton Warriors here:
Blogspot has a brighter picture, are these the more accurate color?
ICY BLUE COLORS (though ice isn't actually blue)
Grimskull (the undead good guy) is the next planned figure, and then Talyn (the unproduced sister). After that they hope to do the giant skeleton dragon. They also have some generic skeleton warriors planned.
so I just got a confirmation from China yesterday on the production schedule, we should be on target for an August drop, as I mentioned previously. Exact date will be announced by the end of this week.
This will be a Havvacor-themed drop, revolving around the tank but also sporting some PVC support troops. Quantities will be very limited the first time out, both the tank and the new price points being a little new for us here at the Banimon HQ. Basically want to make sure everything goes smoothly..."
Banimon tank coming soon.
We haven't seen any signs that they will be mixed. Unless I'm mistaken, every time there were mixed figures Marty has shown them off in their mixed configuration. I don't think he's ever surprised us out of the blue or anything.
No they're not, you need your eyes or monitor checked. The amount of color fluctuation you see there is completely normal for Neo Voss. The "bluish" tinge you see is the darkness behind it showing through. Also, given how Marty tends to mix parts, we know which parts would be swapped: thighs, biceps, horn, and chest gem. If nothing else, you can clearly see that the chest gem is the same color as the chest, can't you?
I like the clear helmet. Adds a nice effect.
All of them glyos parts. I'm trying to decide whether I should bid or not.
You fuckers did it. I finally broke.
What dark wallet-draining hole have I just gotten myself into?
ONE OF US
ONE OF US
Welcome to a terrible, terrible, money-sucking void, anon. Build, play, enjoy, become hopelessly addicted. Enjoy your stay!
I don't think this is that bad. Drops don't come that often. Even getting a lot of stuff this comes out being cheaper than collecting other stuff. I barely buy many glyos, only about a drop per year. I think you'll be fine.
>I barely buy many glyos, only about a drop per year.
I...haven't really met many people like you. I don't even consider myself that huge of a Glyos fan, and my collection ain't even that big, but I haven't missed a drop in a long time. Granted, I don't always buy a lot in every drop, but I always find at least one or two things I want. I've noticed a lot of people in the community seem to match this sort of buying habits.
Glyos compatible releases have been nearly twice a month so far this year, no? I mean you have to consider that even if companies like callgrim and banimon sit things out for a while and only put out 1-2 releases a year You've still got 7 companies other than onell releasing glyos stuff.
All the figures are the same, the only difference is the head. Infact, all the lines are like this except for Power Lords and Outer Space Men have are the same figures with either different heads or different builds.
Although apparently he's been working ona new body for the Visitor, so hopefully we'll see that soon.
I probably buy more Nistuff figures than Glyos, but I get a lot of Glyos joints to balance ut out.
So how about those KabutoMushis
holy fuck my wallet will not be able to handle this wave
This is literally the first Glyos thread that I've ever been in. Just purchased my first set of them. So, I had no idea. I was simply looking around the internet for some neat ones to interest me more to give me a reason to purcahse more.
Update to the classic Imaginext Space Station
Replaced the bed with tentacles
looks just fine for some Glyos adventures!
I don't know, I could never pull the trigger on cool Imaginext playsets like that.
There's a few I'm wanting, but they cost a lot of money and I'm limited on space as it is.
My TiMee Battle Mountain is good enough for now.
If Matt really gave a shit about his fans, he would realize that there are a TON of glyos fans that have already purchased tickets to comic con.
Instead of throwing a temper tantrum and tacking his toys and going home, he could just announce that this would be his last year at NYCC. but no, fuck the people that bought tickets already, hhe's making a grand statement.
Yall have had to have gotten your orders by now.
im surprised i havn't seen any posts.
I only got a few crays and got a spare stealth cray as a bonus (super upset that i missed the voss)
Im curious what anyone else got for freebies.
>>4327594 reporting back. I have played with these things until my fingers are too sore to continue. I plan on resuming as soon as they stop hurting. Holy shit, I see why you guys like these things so much.
I got purple axis joints, an extra purple phase arm, and two bags of yellow heads-- one with Pheyden and Phanost, another with an LSA and an EE.
No worries. Soon your fingers will strengthen up and you'll be READY. After months of pushing and pulling at Glyos (and some rough experiences with the older harder PVC Matt used to use) my fingers can now take anything.
Not noticeably, at least in my opinion. I've bought stuff in pretty much every drop for the last two years or so and the PVC all feels about the same to me. Older stuff is dramatically harder, you can sometimes even hear "clicks" when pieces pop together.
>usps site says item has been delivered an hour ago
>Your neighbour has it.
This is what I was thinking... Idiot postal service. I'll contact them tomorrow about it. I already emailed Onell about it, and they said to keep them updated. Hopefully, it isn't dropped off at the wrong house. I'd hate for Onell to have to replace them when it wasn't even their fault.
while I agree with you that it is easier to heat it up, you're kind of making it sound like one has to heat it up to prevent tearing which is not true at all.
I own a shit load of onell vinyl and I've never had a single problem ever, and I man handle those fuckers.
Well, been trying to deal with this issue with the post office all day. They kept telling me that I should double check my mail.. Nigga, I walked around all outside my house to make sure it didn't get blown away or placed somewhere odd. They told me to wait around today, but the mail already came today. So, they took my information and will have the manager talk to the person who did deliveries on my route and then they'll call me. I don't understand how tough it must be to put packages with the right address. There is literally no thinking required. It is all matching the address with the address on the house. And today, in the mail, we even got someone else's mail... Jesus.
At least the guys from Onell have been amazing. I've been keeping them updated with the issue, and they aren't hesitating to send me another set of the glyos that I ordered, but I don't want the postal-services screw up to cost Onell.
While I agree that the vinyl can usually take a little man handling, IIRC the first run of Rigs had really tight sockets and you had to be careful not to tear the arms when swapping parts.
I love Matt & Glyos, but I'll be honest here (don't want to shit on the forum)...I'm super unimpressed with the Super Crayboth. To be fair, I wasn't enamored with it just seeing the pictures, but figured I'd order one just to check it out.
I miss not having the articulation found on the Armodoc...6 pieces instead of 11. I understand costs have risen since the Armodoc tooling was initially set up, but I just can't get into this Super Cray mold at the same price as the Armodoc.
I do like the fact that the Cray can hold a traveler in it's hand...that's a nice touch. But, overall I just am not feeling this mold. It doesn't have the really clean aesthetic that so much of Matt's work has.
- Price (when compared to the Armodoc)
- Unarticulated head, hands, feet
- The aesthetic doesn't fit with the rest of the Onell line (IMO)
- New middle-sized waist connection doesn't allow for as much swapping with other existing Onell vinyl pieces
- Hand can hold a smaller figure
I am mostly in agreement with this. I also had the vinyl rip on me in the arm and have never had an issue with this. I own hundreds of pieces of glyos vinyl and the both, while looking fantastic, let me down in both the quality and the glyos compatibility aspect of the toy. The other glyos vinyl all swaps so well with everything, whereas the 'both arms look ridiculous on an Armodoc.
Like I said, never had it happen before. Tried a few superglues but none held from the basic trying to put back in socket.
I've been lurking like I always am.
At this time I'm going to choose to leave it out of the guide since it isn't really something that newcomers need to know in order to better understand Glyos.
It's a 101 guide for people who are new to Glyos.
It doesn't need to document every single thing about Glyos, homie.
[spoiler]and stop calling me Luka, I changed my forum name ages ago, b-baka[/spoilerson/toy/]
It's not really like the Armodoc has a lot on the Super Cray. Swivel elbows and ankles, and a swivel neck (heck, the Super Cray doesn't even have a neck by design).
Also, which one did you buy? If you have a pink and want to get rid of it, I might have some stuff to trade for it.
Not sure a single tear equals "durability issues."
We have only seen a single photo and who knows the situation that caused that. Just because clowns say their's ripped too, without photos of the "others' " we have only seen one and that would mean that less than 1% ripped. Hardly a "durability issue."
If you want that added to the guide, you might as well add that the Outlander for the first year couldn't stand straight and had to be hunched over to stand because of design flaws and then new ankle wedge parts were made to try to correct the flaw.
I am sure we could do that with every toy made by any company whether it be Mattel, Hasbro, Onell Design, etc.
To each their own. I love the Super Cray and think the limited articulation adds to the play value. It works well as a standalone toy, versus the sometimes overly-complicated Rig/Block builds and the Armodoc (which feels a little too fiddly to me now). It's a chunky, miniature Lovecraft monster, and it looks great with the other vinyl kaiju that my Glyos were already battling.
I got my package today, my order was kind of small since I wasn't sure I'd like the crayhunter colors, I had only ordered a moredireus super crayboth, 6 normal crays in assorted colors and a LSA soldier. My package had an extra glyan crayhunter reverse thrown in, the redorange pretty much looks orange in the lighting of my room though.
What made you curious to start here, of all toylines?
Did you stumble into /toy/ or did something else influence you to think about toy collecting?
Also to answer your question, Glyos are a great toyline to start.
I would say that the only reason it would be bad is that once you start here, you'll be spoiled and won't be as interested in more mainstream toylines like stuff from Habro and Mattel.
Keep us updated on your thoughts, refer to the guide to give you a good idea on if you like everything you see/read, and finally, don't hesitate to ask us any questions you have regarding Glyos.
We take pride in spoonfeeding noobies any info they need!
Another good thing. They're easy to store. I have an assload that I'm not displaying and that all fit a small plastic container. And the PVC is crazy durable. You could let a small child play with them and they'd be fine.
Oh and don't just limit yourself to the Onell stuff, of course. I particularly love the Nistuff Outlanders. And I was dubious of the Kabutos Mushis until I finally bought some; they're awesome. Although I prefer alternate builds to their main one. Roboforce, I'm not so crazy about, but they're okay, too.
The anime ninderoids and figmas were nice, but I don't watch enough anime or am I willing to spend all the extra money for the good retires figures. Things like old toys, barbies, ect. aren't up my alley because they're not nostalgic for me, I want something appealing to look at and fun to collect without spending a ton of money. Although i'm not 100% on starting with glyos, I do know that they're something I'm really interested in. I also like the idea of the toys requiring assembly and or having interchangeable parts. What caught my attention to this thread was the crayboths in the OP because of how cool they looked compared to the other stuff on /toy/.
I dont get glyos.
If any other toy line released the say set of figures over and over in different colors, people would call bullshit right away.
Glyos releases the same figures in different colors and you people eat it up. What gives?
"Q: These are great and all, but the drop had nothing but recolors of sculpts that already exist. When will I see a new sculpt?
A: If you are expecting something new sculpt-wise every drop, then Glyos may not be for you. Drops consist of new colorways of already existing sculpts. Remember these are independent companies and those steel molds for the new sculpts cost major cheddar."
Your fucking stupid. Sure they are different colors but they can build totally different characters and in the case of godbeast's kabutomushi looks like there are two new character builds and they do look completely different than his kabutomushi.
No, godbeast does NOT charge an additional $2 shipping per figure. He has shipped all my orders up to 6 figures in one box for only $6.25 domestic priority. Looks like we have a troll trying to pass on false information again.
Me neither, but that would be sweet.
Glyos sort of falls in between a collectibles line and a building block line. Thereare charcters and sometimes people just want to collectthe different colorbways, but sometimes you want the pieces. I mean you don't complain about different colors of the same lego blocks right?
If you try to think of Glyos like a standard action figure line, of course it seems absurd. But Glyos is a building block toyline at heart. Think of it like Lego. Do people complain because a brick exists in 100 different colors? New colors let you put a new spin on old builds, or finally recreate your favorite character in Glyos form. Plus there's admittedly something joyously addictive about getting your favorite mold in a really bitchin color. I feel like if nothing else, Glyos really taught me to appreciate color in a whole new way.
Besides, it's not just the same old figures over and over, that would inevitably get stale after a while. Matt keeps things fresh by adding new characters or joint types every so often, and there's a burgeoning "third party" scene that use Matt's joint system and allow for even more expansive builds.
>Your fucking stupid
Fantastic response bro, you totally got me.
I get it, its a small company, they cant afford to do a new mold every time, im not arguing that they should. What im saying, is that I dont understand as a collector, why you need the same figure in 15 different colors.
I get the building aspect of it, having axis joints, and swing joints and such in different colors, but it seems like the figures would have more appeal if they were released less often, but with better paint apps.
ah yeah that makes sense, i dont mind buying the same one in different colors since i dont really buy a lot
I think most people tend to buy a bunch of colors so they just use that route to make money, while oyur method might be more risky
These are all fair points. Glyos is definitely not for everyone and I totally didn't get it until I bought some. I actually don't care for Onell's "Travelers" very much and buy pretty much none of them. I'm drfinitely more of a I need those pieces kind of guy.
>it seems like the figures would have more appeal if they were released less often, but with better paint apps.
I think this would really only appeal to people who want to stick these things on their shelf and leave them there. AKA a pretty small portion of Glyos fans. And by the way, as a builder, I am AGAINST more paint apps (which Matt has been trying lately). They drive up costs, they overcomplicate the look of the figures, and they make building weird sometimes since pieces are painted in pre-detemined colors so you sometimes end up with unwanted colors in your build. I liked things the way they were, with relatively few paint apps.
>I totally didn't get it until I bought some
THIS, SO MUCH THIS.
I've watched Glyos nearly since it began production, and for many years, I didn't really understand it. I was a pretty standard /toy/ soldier, prizing articulation and posing my SHFs and Marvel Legends. As an articulation junkie, I couldn't understand why people were buying these crappily articulated little figures. One day I had some extra money, and a drop happened to be going on that day, so I just decided fuck it, I'll give it a shot. And it's just been non-stop since then. There's an enjoyability to this line, at least for me, that's difficult to describe. I don't even necessarily need to be building, I'll just keep some Travelers and Glyans on my desk to mess with or even slip a Cray into my pocket to fiddle with while I work. It hearkens back to my 80s childhood in many ways, and really reminds me of the sensation of playing with toys from that era.
>I don't even necessarily need to be building, I'll just keep some Travelers and Glyans on my desk to mess with or even slip a Cray into my pocket to fiddle with while I work.
Yep, I frequently carry one around with me and I have no idea what compels me to do this. I want to bring them with me places.
And with little effort you can get great articulation and a great looking figure.
It's in the same vein of all indie toys "I have this figure, but I don't have it in this color" or "I'd like to have this figure in this color".
Alternatively, it's like Lego Minifigures, at the core, they are the same toy, just with different things.
Matt is currently trying to do the best of both worlds by offering a large selection of figures in plain colors for one drop and then following up with a smaller drop that features just a few figures with detail lines and special paint apps.
Frankly, I've been spending less on the "building" drops and more on these little "deluxe" figure drops. Go pick up a Lost Sincroid Army figure while there are still a few in stock...great stand-alone figure!
The Standard Pheyden is also still available in the store if you go to the "build station" page.
It's like buying Toku figures. Kamen Rider Double, all the Wizard forms, a complete Sentai team, the figures are all the same and are in different colors, yet they represent different characters.
I honestly think Kabuto Mushi II is the very best of all the Glyos-compatible figures. If you don't have one you owe it to yourself to order at least 1 just to check it out. I would recommend either the metallic blue or metallic purple at the bottom of his store page, but it's up to you.
Thanks for the tip, but I've had met blue and met purple for a while
Ancient pic taken in my old dorm related
testing out a new head model... its like some kind of chicken guy
i need to figure out a better way to do this, i always make stuff too small(in this case the details of the face)
On a semi-related note (Since it likely would've been Glyos-compatible), I actually heard from Matt of Dinosaur Dracula that Toyfinity was trying to get the rights from Topps to make a figure of "The Supreme Monstrosity"/Dinosaur Satan from Dinosaurs Attack.
But, sadly, it fell through. Anyone else sad about that?
why do you stupid faggots exaggerate everything to the point of it meaning exactly not what was stated?
That anon from a few threads was talking about seeing if he could purchase the street sharks license to try to make them glyos-compatible until we laid down the harsh and expensive truth on the matter.
He didn't brag about anything, you shit-stirring fuck.
just a heads up, niggers.
a forum user on OTF is listing handfuls of misc. parts from lines throughout history.
it sounds like I'm shilling, but they're pretty fucking cheap for what you get.
go over to the issaris marketplace to find the user.
say what you guys will, but I personally love fistful sales.
fistfuls are a kind of oldfag thing since Matt used to sell handfuls of random parts in his store.
nowadays, everybody has a need to keep their figures complete so nobody really trades parts of seta anymore.
and he'll I think the last time I bought fistfuls, they were 20 a pop.
I bought 2 large handfuls this time so I'll have lots of color mismatched goodness.
It's not too bad, to be honest. It's about in line with what other people have offered in handful-style sales. If you subtract the $3 for shipping, he's offering a small handful for $10, a big handful for $15, and a big handful with two rare/special parts for $22. That's pretty standard pricing for handfuls. And I can already see that some of the "rare" heads he's offering are worth a lot more than their distributed cost ($3.50 apiece).
Again, "handful" sales are kind of a tradition on OTF. It's always a roll of the dice what you get. I know people love to demonize GlyOG, but he did not invent this type of sale, and his prices are relatively fair for this sort of thing.
This. Handful sales are also a great way to obtain rare parts or colors for building, or to start slowly building rare figures that you cannot find for sale on the aftermarket. Believe it or not, I am almost done building one of my most-wanted figures (Core Phanost) just from parts I got from handful sales! It also gives you a nice little surprise to look forward to. Like >>4350229 said, most people keep their figures complete these days so there's no surprise in the aftermarket. Buying handfuls brings back good memories of when the Junk Shop was alive.
a large bag is only 5 bucks more so I couldn't resist picking up two of them.
I'm not huge on custom heads so I didn't figure I needed to throw that kind of money down.
but at least if you don't like the idea of fistfuls once you get yours in the mail, it's not like they won't have trade value.
And the Visitor mercenaries lead by a particularly nasty Destian Leyden.
Destian is my favorite colorway.
vinyl glyos figures like armodoc, the rig, and the new super crayboth are nice to have for display pieces, but I personally haven't gotten into the building aspect of the vinyl because building with stuff like blocks and tri-hubs requires you to cut into the vinyl to make more connections for the pegs/switch pins which I don't feel comfortable doing. also outside of tri-hubs and switch pins the vinyl pieces are kind of expensive.
The vinyl building aspect is precisely what I'm curious about.
I don't plan on going crazy with giant playsets or battle tanks or whatever, but I would like to get either a rig or block, a conversion kit, and some wedges and mash them into something cool.
It's hard to hunt through the build thread on OTF because that's like 99% figures and people don't always label their posts.
If any vinyl builders in the thread, I'd appreciate some photos or advice or whatever.
You got it, vinyl is the reason I got into vinyl. the figures are cool, but I only thought that AFTER I got them. Really I was excited once the block showed up to be able to build bases, larger vehicles, etc. They are meant to be cut into, I suppose I was a little scared for all of three seconds and then I grew some balls and it's awesome.
I like the base idea behind Glyos, but I hate the puffy Michelin Man aesthetics of everything, and I hate how a cheap toy is sold for a fortune because it's under the guise of some high-end nerd art.
I'll wait for a company to rip off the basic idea and sell their line at Dollar General someday.
>buy up cheap rights to old toy
>make new version that doesn't resemble them in any way
>reeduners and your nerd loyalists defend it to the death
Toy collectors can be as fanatical as a religious extremist group, over stuff that's just as dumb.
Is every person that doesn't buy high end $200+ figures a poorfag or what? If glyos isn't your thing it isn't your thing, but I'm baffled as to how anyone can claim figures sold between $4-$12 are "a fortune."
Same anon here, in before someone goes "oh but in order to do anything fun you need to spend like $25 on upgrade parts" and yes, building parts are fun, but you're an idiot if you buy $40 of glyos and only build one figure. When I like a colorway I'll usually spend roughly $120 on figures and parts and wind up with 8-10 built up figures.
hey dickrash, when everything someone buys is at the dollar store $10 is a 1000% markup. the reason people can argue against glyos fans is because half of them are retards. LRN2READFAGGIT, the guy was defending your precious line
The bulk of glyos toys are close to LEGO quality wise. Considering that Lego pumps out tens of thousands of minifigs for $4 and glyos puts out it's small mini crayboth in runs of the low hundreds and also $4 is amazing. All you poorfags bitching about the price fail to realize that toys are expensive to make, and costs are increasing, and this is a quality line for cheap. If someone can show me a cheaper line of toys that I can't go buy at walmart, I would LOVE to try them out. Seriously. I await responses.
you are a fucking idiot... I was agreeing with you and calling out the guy on his bullshit. but apparently you can't read. so maybe don't spend your $8 allowance on toys and instead go back to school you fucking dipshit
Glyos fans are good at two things.
1. Taking bate.
2. Giving apologies.
just because I agree that glyos are quality toys on the cheap doesn't change the fact that you're a fucking dickrash that can't read. if you hadn't responded to my post in the first place and lumped me in with the faggot who thinks glyos is ohhhh so expensive then you wouldn't be a total dipshit.
there is a guy making metal punches that will make the plugs and block pieces much easier to 'build' with.
is see your mega-callgrim pieces as well....
>and I hate how a cheap toy is sold for a fortune because it's under the guise of some high-end nerd art.
there are only a few figs like that really though, mostly the CC stuff from the first few years. it's really more of a buy and build line now. look at the last year alone, way more figures being produced, very few paint apps to keep prices down, ect.
you also don't /have/ to buy every single one or even buy any of the roboforce stuff. i don't have one or a mordles either. it's actually pretty easy to get into glyos because most people don't actually take it so seriously. that's how i've found it anyway.
Guy that posted about having ripped cray arm here.. Just wanted to say that after doing nothing but making one other post about it on October toys that I received a package in the mail with a new cray arm and some extras. That's right, a semi anonymous message board post led to getting a package with replacement parts. Best company in the biz. Meanwhile 4H won't even respond about missing merch for months on end.
Sales were strong and IF orders are steay the next few weeks, I have a SUPER SPECIAL DX Kabuto Mushi planned for my October release. This DX figure will have a total of 30 paint apps and ALL the detail lines factory painted!!! This DX figure will require me to purchase additional paint masks, but, it will be worth it! The finished factory DX Kabuto Mushi won't be a wallet buster.
October's release will be 1 SUPER DX figure and possibly 1 more regular figure.
i bought a kabuto mushi from ebay and it was missing the horn, told the guy about it but he said that he mailed it for sure, i wonder if it is possible it came out of the package during transit?
Ken Goff on the facebook group Glyan Alliance
>Second round of testing for my Glyan vinyl punch. Bit more tweaking needed yet before production but it's getting close.
Vinyls are too hard to come by for someone either starting or casual, not to mention they don't sit in shops long enough either. I wouldn't want to buy a Vinyl hole punch I'd use for one drop. Maybe rent one though.
Can someone with vinyl on hand measure the diameter of the little disks?
I feel if it was a common enough size it'd be really easy to just go and grab an actual hole punching tool or something.
It gets wordy to say the same things repeatedly, so when the multiple page version comes out, it can easily be condensed into having a section that says "These are the following traits that can be applied to these figures"
"There are still several backers who have not confirmed their pledge! There will be no Kickstarter survey sent to collect your shipping address - we are processing all pledges through our system on Celery. Please note that if you do not confirm your pledge by August 27th, we cannot guarantee that you will receive any add-ons you may have pledged for! We will make sure everyone receives the basic figures they pledged for, but if you do not confirm your pledge, we do not have a record of what add-on items you want and cannot guarantee they will be included in our production order."
Confirm your shit
So, did anyone else spend too much money on this glorious Kabuto rainbow? I did and it's glorious. The colors are beautiful.
Godbeast posted that picture on facebook like, 30 seconds before it was posted here.
Coincidence, im sure.
Who gives a fuck even if it is him? It's not like he's some big corporate honcho trying to secretly get market research data and infiltrate our board. He's a normal-ass guy with a small indie toy operation. And he happens to be a pretty nice dude to boot.
Also, I find it extremely humorous that anyone thinks we're worth viral marketing to. Anyone with half a brain can see we're a waste of time--we're a small, grouchy, slow-moving board, and most of us have relatively small amounts of disposable income since most of us are either college students or right out of college. If someone were really trying to spread the word on their line, there are lots of other bigger and more important toy boards, where people actually have a lot of money to drop. Face it: we're a drop in the fucking ocean. We're nobody.
Guyz, guyz, guyz...calm down...I occasionally do some fun reading here...so if I see a kewl pic from someone, then I snag it & post it. Watch, I will post that killer mini mushi pic in a sec. ;) btw, thanx 2 those that have supported KM & those that haven't...it's kewl I know it is hard 2 have enough $ 2 buy all the toyz u might want. I am just like everyone else...tryin' 2 buy what my sons & I dig and no one ever has enough $ 2 do that. I am sure KM doesn't interest some collectors and that's fine too.
Oh, and 2 the "Fuck you godbeast," I dig hellos like that!!! Whatssup kid? :)
The backpack fits pretty snug inside the opening on the bunker, so that allows another quick weapons upgrade right there. Between that and the PVC connector hole on the back of it it creates some interesting options for building out even just on that one vinyl part.
>Actually it will come with the decals already applied, but yes. I wanted to bring some of that oldschool airplane/battleship model feel to it, and the one and only Jesse Moore generously opened his shop and helped make it happen. In the future we are looking at possibly including a separate sticker sheet but need to figure out some logistics in terms of how to best package it.

THE CALL OF GRIM IS RINGING ONCE AGAIN, PLEASE LET US SEE ITS RETURN
Glyos-compatible "Neo Mordle" prototype
sculpt is fucking cool.
feet are going to be useless for serious but fun for silly builds.
heads will be glorious for making characters on normal sized figures.
Hope these little shits don't cost more than $2 a pop.
So thanks to a really cool dude in the BST, I've finally got my hands on some glyos and all I can really say is wow. I only have a couple (an Armorvor, some Kabuto Mushi, a pheyden and other bits and pieces) and I'm already craving more to build with. This is like, the kind of toy line I've dreamed of since I was a little kid. Also for some reason they make me strangely nostalgic for reasons I can't even begin to understand. I don't know if it was the smell and feel of fresh plastic or the colours and sculpts or something, but I actually felt like a little kid opening up my new toys excitedly on the car ride back from KB toys or something for the first time in over a decade. Needless to say, I'm hooked on this line and I'll do everything I can to support the companies that create these fantastic little toys.
I made my own little guy out of some of the parts I received, what do you guys think?
>captcha was literally a picture of a fucking teacup
What the shit
>it's getting good
From what I've seen, it's crazy good already. But I'm curious, how is it getting better?
Thank you, I'm glad I finally bit the bullet and got into glyos. I didn't even realise how affordable they were either. I'm debating whether or not I should buy a couple soon or just wait it out until some new drops happen.
I'm really happy with the colours, and I'm thinking I should get some of those swing joints for the arms or legs. Maybe a different head, but I'm not sure.
Vinyl craze is happening, the return of the Rig, the new Super Crayboth, and the up and coming Banitank.
If vinyl isn't your thing, the return of the rig team might bring some of the Gatekeepers back, Gatekeepers are the Pink and Purple Glyos figures.
>If vinyl isn't your thing
Even if vinyl isn't any glyos fans thing, I -highly- encourage people, especially noobies- to at the very least get some form of Rig to test the waters.
Between how damn good it looks next to your Travelers as well as how many ships you can turn it into by rotating it or looking at it from a different angle are absolutely astonishing.
The $25 is never fun though, but the best part about vinyl ships is that if you don't like them, you can sell them for retail or get some good trades for them since they usually sell out on drop nights.
Literally no reason not to test the waters.
$25 isn't bad for one piece, sure.
But to build with vinyl like you do with PVC glyos, you'll need major money.
Some people are actually blessed enough to be able to as well.
and to answer your question, the last big vinyl drop was the Glyaxia drop. We haven't seen that much vinyl in stores since 2012.
You can expect to see at least a Rig this upcoming drop, but it's unclear when they're be another "vinyl building" drop, probably not for quite a while.
you might want to familiarize yourself with the different vinyl pieces that are sold if you are curious enough.
Go to the guide and scroll down to IV. Onell Design Vinyl Names
Oh wait, you mean each individual piece is $25? Well... Shit. There goes that plan. I'd love to build something similar to the bad boy you posted but at $25 a piece I won't have enough for rent.
So do they only come in white and blue or are there different colours? I'd love some more bright or neon colours.
I've been messing with builds in my mind because I can't get my hands on any Vinyl, but how would it look to have the Rig Top and Bottom, then using switch pins and using the Blocks as Feet. I'll work out the arms if that idea works.
yea it's fucking crazy.
just in that build i posted alone, whoever bought those pieces spent at LEAST $130 in vinyl.
There's very few vinyl builders because of how much dough you have to fork up.
also miteb easier to just show you.
you'll have to do -a lot- of scrolling to view all the vinyl colors up to 2013, but that's pretty much the easiest way to view all the colors.
Matt doesn't update the archive too often so all the 2014 colors are still missing.
Keep in mind if you're trying to find any vinyl over a year old you'll probably be paying at least $10 more than what it sold for since it always sells out quick, seldom shows up for sale, and is old.
God speed anon, hopefully you won't see anything you need or else your ass will be broke.
sounds like an awesome build so far, sounds like some Rig Runners for arms and then something for hands/blasters/whatever connected to the other end of the Rig Runners would go with it.
Each Rig is $25 and comes with 4 pieces, either a long cannon and multicannons or two wings. We haven't seen a Rig with the cannons in a while, so it's mostlikely the wings type next drop. But the cannons are in a two-pack of Long cannons and multicannons for $12 each.
All this information is in the guide in the OP
That odd displaced feeling of nostalgia is no mistake. Glyos is heavily influenced by the toys of the 70s, 80s, and even 90s. If you page through the archives, you may even recognize some color schemes that are homages to toys from our collective childhoods.
Also, welcome to the Glyoverse, hope you enjoy your stay and have a ton of fun building!
Oh yeah, matching colors are a big thing. Like, sometimes you'll get a figure and you're like yeah, it's cool, but then you'll put it next to another figure and realize the colors would look fucking amazing together and when you combine them it's like chocolate in my peanut butter, chicken in my waffles, bacon in my vodka, ohhh shit so good.
>I'd want some options to turn it into a mech though
The parts are there, you just need the imagination and money to pull it off.
Hey, I made that guy! Always loved how that one turned out. Recipe was 2 rigs, 2 armodocs, 2 rig runners, 2 blocks, 2 conversion kits, and I think 6 switch pins total but 2 were cosmetic. Vinyl is expensive but totally worth it.
That is the godbeast's vinyl build. Here is a photo from his facebook godbeast page of onell's original voss, lsa gid and godbeast's sculpt of onell's repoclaimer. So yes I would say it is real.
