Skel-Assessment

Glyos Transmission Blog - 6 June, 2014 - 06:40
These new skeletons are big, mean and a ton of fun to play around with. We'll be posting some more shots of this figure as the day goes on as well as address some scale questions that have been floating around. Old crackle bones up there is indeed substantial in size!

When you spend some time handling one of these "Titan" skeletons, it becomes clear that you're getting an excellent value for a figure this large and articulated.

The timeless iconography of a villainous skeleton is even more powerful in hand, with just the right amount of stylization mixed into the sculpting and design. This figure looks like the reanimated bones of a giant in comparison to a standard 3 3/4" figure, which adds a great twist to the play value. Bones of the Nephilim! Ha!

Those of you following the October Toys Skeleton Warriors Kickstarter may have had a look at another Kickstarter that is also currently underway, being presented by the fantastically talented Boss Fight Studio. Both the October Toys campaign and Boss Fight's campaign started on the same day (Monday) and actually share some similar thematic concepts, one being a basic Skeleton type warrior. The October Toys version, though scaled to play with standard 3 3/4" figures, is actually around 5" tall, representing a super charged and slightly mutated giant Skeleton Warrior. Boss Fight's proposed skeleton figure is designed to measure in at an actual 3 3/4", proportioned directly in size to a standard 3 3/4" human type body. Both figures conjure up memories of the classic Ray Harryhausen skeletons that many of us were crazy about when we were young (Creature Double Feature!). I love the idea of combining both companies skeletons into one undead mega army after the dust settles!

The fact that two fairly ambitious crowd funded action figure projects started on the same exact day is pretty wild, and I believe unprecedented in the history of Kickstarter. This really is a unique and exciting time to be an action figure collector and enthusiast.

As of this writing Boss Fight Studio has hit their goal and shows no signs of slowing down, so hopefully they will be able to unlock all of their planned stretch goals and get to their bone battalion!

The Skeleton Warriors project is 40% funded as I write this, so things are moving in the right direction! George, Ayleen, Marcus and I have some neat reveals on deck, and will continue to put all our collective effort into bringing Skeleton Warriors back to a life in plastic! Thank you to everyone who has contributed! It's fascinating to have a window seat for one of these things.

"Permit me to introduce myself…" (#TBT #bloglife)

TOYSREVIL'S I LIKE TOYS - 6 June, 2014 - 03:49
I remember first starting out wanting to blog about toys and offer toy-news, some semi-odd 8 years ago; I 'cold'-emailed as many artists and toy-makers/producers as I could find then, introduced myself and my intentions, and asked to be put on their mailing-lists (if any). Sort of like "job interview requests" lol - but I had wanted news straight from "the source", so this was the only way I

Review - Transformers 4 Age of Extinction Voyager Galvatron

Tformers - 6 June, 2014 - 02:57
Another movie, another classic character name reuse that has no connection with its origins. Or at least, not in the typical sense. I have my own speculation on the origins of this Galvatron which I'll keep to myself, but might actually make the name applicable beyond trying to catch people with another semi-recognizable name. I'll talk more on the process of naming movie characters when I get to Hound. Read the full review!

Here's a peek at a "color test" for Scott Tolleson's "Lyle Bean" from Mighty Jaxx for their new CO-LAB line! Won't be too surprised to see more colorways in this series too, "excited" is more the word I have in my mind LOL … but would they be available "blind boxed", or opened window? Further details - including size - to be updated when I have them :) Posted below is a re-look at the first

Featuring body from a Lego-Hulk and (unknown) head from the well-known Jedi Master, the equation for this resin cast indie-toy running thru my nerd-brain is; *Bootleggary x Mash-up = AWESOME! + Indie-Lowbrow-Art FTW!* The piece with a lightsabre looks like he's holding up a tooth-pick LOL Courtesy of "
