Super Robots Giant Monsters Show

In the midst of the activities happening this weekend, our friends over at Collection DX will be putting on a brand new event called Super Robots Giant Monsters in Lowell, Massachusetts! Falling on Saturday, March 29th, from 11AM -7PM, this special showcase will feature an eclectic group of artists and vendors from all around the Northeast, an Art Exhibit and also a Toy Exhibit -curated by 3D Printing and CAD ace, Sanjeev Selvaraj!

I've personally known Josh over at CDX for a long time, watching him build his website into something very impressive over the years. The amount of effort put into this one of a kind show is another example of Josh's desire to create something unique and exciting, for all of us to participate in and enjoy. It has been an honor for us to be able to help sponsor the event, and we're really looking forward to meeting up with some of you guys in person on Saturday.

We'll have a special area set up for Glyos related stuff featuring our partners in crime:

-Jesse Moore of Callgrim

-Boris Savic of Banimon

-John Kent of Toyfinity

-Pj Bartlett of Spaced Out Design

Should be a fun day, and Josh even has a crazy food truck showing up that we can antagonize throughout the show!

Hope to see you on Saturday!


New Mini Release

This weekend, on Sunday, March 30th at 9:30PM EST, we will have a Mini Release of a few new figures, along with the restock of Ultra Silver, GITD green and Black Metallic Axis Joint Sets.

This Mini Release will see the return of a couple detail lined figures, in the form of Commander Sullkren MK II, as well as the very first detail lined Dark Traveler. These two figures also have brand new painted areas, some of which make their debut with this round. For the very first time (after nearly 7 years) , Travelers will have full production painted shoulders, shoulder tampos, bottoms of the feet, and fronts of the feet. Coupled with the painted areas on the tops of the hands, these two figures feature the most factory applied paint on a Traveler release to date.

On a related note, the gray colors of the new Sullkren and Dark Traveler are not exact color matches to the 2012 ZED wave, but do fall within the same family.

Also on deck for this Sunday is Argen MK XI, in his Black Metallic "Dark Argen" color selection. This look matches the recent Black Metallic Kabuto Mushi that TGB just released last week.

Last but not least is the Gold Noboto, or "Goldboto". Some of these escaped in the big February shipping process last month, and now the rest of the Goldbotos want to hit the road as well!

A complete detailed list will be up soon (the detail lined figures come with lots of extra parts- much like Hades did last month), but the quick list is:

Commander Sullkren MK II   $12 USD
Dark Traveler  $12 USD
Argen MK XI   $12 USD
Goldboto   $8 USD

I know that this wave comes right on the heels of recent Glyos related releases from TGB and Toyfinity, but sometimes the production schedule lands everything right in a row. We'll see how the response goes, as this Mini Release project is still a work in progress. The next big wave is planned for the end of April (Glyaxia), which we are still on track for. After that we're shooting for very small late May wave, then a restock of the Buildstation in late June.

Having these deluxe versions out and about has been a lot of fun, especially on walks outside. The detail lines add a certain depth of realism to the photo shoots, and remind me a lot of the old days. I've really enjoyed taking location shots as the seasons start to change again.

New Robo Force Rollout

The Toyfinity Team has a great new round of stuff scheduled for release tonight, March 23rd, at 9PM EST over in their store!

You can find all the details here!

Both PVC colors for this assortment match right up to the Ultra Silver and GITD green of our recent February wave, as well as the Kabuto Mushi swarm attack from last week.

The original Sentinel has always been one of my favorite Robo Force characters, sporting a compact yet sleek look to its core body design. The new Sentinel (shown above), was designed to hopefully evoke that classic 80's structure, but also allow for maximum customization potential.

On a related note, as we were working on the Robo Force parts it became pretty clear that with a little pushing and pulling, the head geometry of Sentinel and Enemy could be connected, resulting in a reversible design that could also serve as chest armor for Hun-Dred. The whole figure is kind of a Mecha Puzzle.

Having an already established cast of characters adds a different dimension to the process of making a toy, especially a property like Robo Force. The Toyfinity/Onell teams absolutely wanted to make sure that we honored the classic toy series, yet incorporate brand new elements that would give the modern figures options that did not exist before. Had the classic Robo Force toys perhaps featured some more modular parts, the experience of playing with them might have been a more creative and long lasting one. I do still love those old mech-frigerators, though.

It can be a bit of a tightrope redesigning something that fans of the original hold dear, and I know that all of us involved in bringing Robo Force back put everything we had into the project, because we are those very fans.


New Kabuto Mushi MK II Release

Our good friend Marty "The Godbeast" Hansen has prepared an all new assortment of Kabuto Mushi MK II colors for release tonight, March 18th, at 8 PM CST over in his store.

Marty spent lot of time selecting the special metallic blue and purple that are included in this wave of figures, comparing tons of colors in search of just the right combination.

Pushing the limits of what the PVC can achieve with select additives has been a running theme around here for a while now, but with Marty's specific eye for vibrancy things have been pushed even further than ever before. He absolutely has a natural gift for choosing cool color combos.

Additionally, Marty will be offering three Kabuto Mushis that match our recent February round of plastics, featuring Ultra Silver, GITD green (shown above) and Metallic Black! The Metallic Black looks particularly menacing on the KM MKII mold.

Tonight marks the second official wave of Kabuto Mushi MK II full production figures, and our whole family wishes Marty the best of luck tonight as he unleashes another swarm of his fantastic figure.

Congratulations Marty! Here's to many more!


Cosmic Gladiators

I've been literally waiting decades for a Colossus Rex like this.

Redesigned by the legendary Mel Birnkrant and sculpted by the inimitable Four Horsemen, the fully painted Rex shown above is really an out of this world figure.

I couldn't resist taking Rex outside today for a little battle with the completely outmatched Traveler Lymerran Pheyden (even with some Ultra Silver armor on). Who knows, maybe it was just a training exercise. Either way, it was quite surreal to take pictures of one of my personal super grails -an Infinity Edition of the remastered Rex!

The 4H have the whole new assortment of Infinity Editions OSM in stock now, including my childhood favorite, the mighty Man from Jupiter, Colossus Rex.

Huge, HUGE congratulations to Mel and the 4H for completing a cycle that was started all the way back in 1968! This line is without a doubt an integral piece of toy history, and I believe as the years roll on, it will become much clearer just how unique of an accomplishment bringing the OSM back to life has truly been.
