Y'all know me and my opinions

Y'all know me and my opinions of action figures (vinyls in particular). But...

I WANT ONE OF THESE.

I can see what they were trying to do with the left fist, but I'm not quite convinced. Oh, well. This thing is awesome.
Are they planning any repaints?

(A bummer I missed my chance to get one of those gray bell-shaped Glyos figures from a few years back...)

A friend of mine grabbed two

A friend of mine grabbed two of these for me when they came out, and I love 'em! I don't usually go for the minimal-articulation vinyls stuff, either. I especially love how just twisting them around can result in different formations; the SHMUP fan in me loves being able to turn this into a little ship like you'd see in Gradius or R-Type.

One thing, though: I haven't been able to get the arms off. Are they really supposed to come off? I try to remove them, and it looks like the plastic is tearing at the lip that keeps the arm on. I can get the torso apart, but I'm afraid the arms will break...

Heat up some water and pour

Heat up some water and pour it over the area. Vital technique for people who fiddle with toys.

I have huge respect for Matt

I have huge respect for Matt Doughty and his accomplishments, and I love little men who ride in vehicles and robots (Z-Bots were a formative experience for me). However, the style of the Gylos stuff just isn't my cup of tea, despite the cool stuff that can be done with it.
