Prototype Sincroid Exellis
Review by JoshB
When these first came out I was so caught up in the commotion that I reviewed Pheyden and completely forgot about Exellis. Now that these have been out for a while I can now talk a bit more about these awesome figures.
Prototype Sincroid Exellis is the companion piece to Onell Design's Pheyden action figure. They are the brainchild of Matt Doughty who just happens to live minutes from my house. I suppose that it was inevitable that we should meet, and we've managed to develop a great friendship. I try not to let that friendship cloud my impression of his figures, but i have to say that seeing this whole process come to fruition is pretty amazing.
Exellis is an articulated action figure that is meant to be played with. He's 2.75 inches tall, has 12 points of articulation, and comes in three different color variations.
The toys come in a cool little window box that has a small sticker denoting what figure is inside. The boxes aren't even taped shut, as Matt just wants people to play with them. They are sturdy and meant to survive in a kids pocket. I have a few on my desk and I fiddle with them all the time.
One of the great things about these toys is that they are all interchangeable. You can mix and match parts form each one to create unique color schemes. You can even create new massive toys if you have many of them at your disposal.
There's even a whole crazy backstory behind these guys that they chronicle over at the Glyos Transmission Blog. You can get a good idea of what kind of creations you can come up with from some of the things they post.
They're just getting ready to release some new figures, and some new colorways of the existing figures, so go grab them while you can.
