I love it... will definitely

I love it... will definitely have to grab at least one. I just can't help but feel bad when I buy Onell figures though, because every time I look at the blog and see the custom creations, I feel dumb.

That's hilarious! I hope

That's hilarious! I hope Matt will take it as a compliment that his blog makes folks "feel dumb"! ;)

Anyway, I love this thing. I've handled a few of these silver behemoths and I actually didn't have much trouble taking the figure apart or putting it back together. You've been doing nothin' but typing with them fingers for too long, Josh! :P

I did see the prototype for the rust version, and I gotta tell ya, it doesn't look NEARLY as good as the production version above!! I'm actually pretty damn amazed! The rust actually looks like rust on a worn, old robot. The prototype that Matt hand painted looked more like...well...a poop-stained old robot!

But anyway, just like the other Glyos figures, they're totally fun and cool to mess around with, but once you get them in out! My absolute favorite Gobon mash-up is Robocop 2-esque figure (scroll to the last pic) that's made of just two Gobons and a few sets of Gobon Blasters/Phase Arms.

I have to admit it- this

I have to admit it- this one's pretty awesome! And having the extra head [hidden inside of it] is brilliant.

I finally ordered some Glyos figures a few weeks ago and had them come in Wednesday. They're all incredible, and I'm eager to add a Gobon (and Armdoc!) to the set.

I really hope I get one of these as a bonus with the new Buildman figures I had ordered. I can't really explain why but I just love fat robots.

Gobon's always been a favorite of mine ever since I first saw him. Does anyone else really want to make a Boss Borot custom or is that just me? : P

Matt generously included one

Matt generously included one of these in my most recent order (thanks again Matt!), and I agree with all the positive remarks already mentioned. Gobon is awesome! I can't wait to get a few more when they become available.
