Battlegrip.com - 21 June, 2017 - 02:09
Yesterday’s G.I. Joe action figure ad also included these two blocks for Masters of the Universe and M.A.S.H. action figures. Now we all know that Masters of the Universe ads from the eighties aren’t all that uncommon, but how many times do you find an ad block for M.A.S.H. toys?

In a newspaper ad packed with E.T. merch we find this small block for Hasbro’s G.I. Joe action figures. This is from early in the G.I.

Bio-Masters: Wave 3

Glyos Transmission Blog - 18 June, 2017 - 12:49
Cosmic Dungeon Master, Pat Bussey, currently has the third wave of his awesome Bio-Mass Monsters available now, over in his updated store.

Inspired by TSR's legendary Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and continuing the fantasy themed month of June across the sister Glyos companies, Pat's latest assortment is loaded with awesome colors and three special "Dark Fortress" builds (one of which even includes a "Contaminated" Hub Set).

Being able to watch Pat's creative process once again has been a blast, as he really does sink a lot of effort into the accompanying illustrations and story elements of his launches to flesh things out. Pat even constructed a scratch built set for his pics! A true passion project, all the way.

Killer work, Pat! Everything about this round is a knockout!
