Review: Plastic Imagination Rise of the Beasts Cerula - Green Scorpion with Grey Paint

Plastic Imagination Rise of the Beasts Cerula - Green Scorpion with Grey Paint Action FiguresHe's green! The Glyos-powered Rise of the Beasts line is pretty fantastic, although it's hard to view them purely as wholly their own thing. I keep expecting to see squat little guys, but Cerula - Green Scorpion with Grey Paint is more of what a small figure of the 1990s might look like, rather than the 1980s. The overly-muscular creature is fundamentally the same as Cahriv except for the coloration.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Neo Granthan Cliffstalker Action Figure

Onell Design Glyos Neo Granthan Cliffstalker Action FigureThe name is evocative! The Neo Granthan Cliffstalker is a brown, chocolate-flavored take on the Battle Beasts-inspired Glyos figure. With an orange skin and a red Black Core, this feels like many of the popular 1980s robotic toys out of Tomy. While not a perfect match, it immediately reminded me of Robostrux mixed with a little bit of the ever-lovin' blue-eyed Thing. He is orange with blue eyes, after all.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Neo Granthan Vrylless Action Figure

Onell Design Glyos Neo Granthan Vrylless Action FigureWhile the name (and an unhelmeted hand-molded head) existed for a while, the mass-produced mold is new here! One of three releases, the Neo Granthan Vrylless marks the replacement of the wolf headed Armorvor in favor of a dinosaur-headed Granthan. Two other figures hit at the same time, each of which use the classic Armorvor body with a new head. The wolf helmet head is still here, and you get 18 total parts as always.

Review: Plastic Imagination Rise of the Beasts Bal Kharn - Green Rhino with Grey Paint


Plastic Imagination Rise of the Beasts Bal Kharn - Green Rhino with Grey Paint Action FiguresHe's different! Or at least, mine is. I was lucky to get an early sample of Rise of the Beasts Bal Kharn - Green Rhino with Grey Paint is pretty fantastic. If you bought the first version, this is basically an improvement in terms of color - the quality of that painted black plastic release is impossible to match, but this one is still quite good.

Good news, everyone! Over on Instagram, New Rise of the Beasts 3D printouts are there for the seeing.
