G.I. Joe “Action Battle Toys” - 19 September, 2017 - 02:37
This 1984 Ben Franklin advertisement should make all of the G.I. Joe fans happy. Look at those prices! $16.88 for a Skystriker. $10.97 for the APC. Wait. What is a “Twin Battle Fun” when it comes to G.I. Joe toys of the eighties. Based on the prices and images, I think they wanted to list the Fang there, but “Twin... Read more →

“He’d like to have a few words with you.” - 19 September, 2017 - 01:45
This advertisement for the Star Wars Episode 1 action figures comes from the January 2000 issue of ToyFare magazine, showing us just how hard Hasbro was trying to sell a line of unpopular action figures. The flooded shelves of 1999 and 2000 were not forgotten in 2002, as this 2002 newspaper article proves. Still, it is nice to see that... Read more →

Nerdist Presents “Thor 3: Ragnarok” - 1987 Trailer (The 80s-flavor makes everything awesome)

Thank You!!!

Glyos Transmission Blog - 18 September, 2017 - 22:46
Thank you for a super September release! Not sure what's happening out there exactly, but we've been seeing lots of new faces and some long lost ones as well, steadily popping up over the last few months.

To try and keep things flowing better and allow for folks (new and old alike) to have access to more than just the Buildstation after a new wave, we've been bumping the production numbers up across the boards. Nothing crazy, but hopefully just enough to keep the assortments accessible a little longer than a couple of days. The Mystery figures have been some of our more popular offerings this year, so we've spent extra time adding little twists within the twists to continue the vintage inspired fun.

In general, the Villser seems to be doing pretty good as the new kid on the block, and I've really been loving the crazy builds that you guys have been sharing. The things we create over here are far from perfect, but are always filled with heart and a ton of thought, so I wanted to personally thank you for spending some time with this new creation.

The next round is set for late October and should be fun for those that enjoy not only Halloween, but a little more AD&D as well.

As of this writing, all domestic orders have shipped out, except those that came in tonight. International orders will hit the post first thing tomorrow morning and then we are 100% shipped from this release. Michelle really worked like a machine over the last week (processing the highest amount of orders in a release this year), and Pj swept in for a mega packing special mission that was awesome to behold!

The last few months have had a lot challenges and changes around here, but last week something truly glorious happened, as our brother Marcus and his awesome wife Heidi welcomed their first child into the world. We wanted to just take a moment to send all our love out to little Coralyn Eve Beaudette! Welcome to the world, kiddo! We love you already!

Wrapping up, thank you once again for granting us the freedom to continue to create this stuff. It's especially felt when you watch lives begin and end, and really see clearly how incredibly lucky it is that we've all come together, for however long it lasts, all differences aside.
