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.

New Rise of the Beasts Live Now - Green Drop

http://littlerubberguys.storenvy.com/It's live!  The Little Rubber Guys store has a new drop of 4 Rise of the Beasts figures!

Unpainted figures are $4.00, painted (pictured) are $7.00.  The drop is earlier than planned, as I managed to request/beg for early samples and let me tell you - they're great.  You'll see a review here next week but if you can't wait, go ahead and grab some painted guys while you can.   They're pretty fantastic!

Review: Plastic Imagination Rise of the Beasts Rhinoceros - Silver Mail-Away Redemption

Plastic Imagination Rise of the Beasts Rhinoceros - Silver Mail-Away Redemption Action FigureO nameless beast, from you we can know the great secret of the universe! Maybe not - but I will say that the Rhinoceros - Silver Mail-Away Redemption is a low-run mail-in freebie cast in metallic black PVC and painted exceptionally well. He has no name of his own, and the figure itself is basically the grey painted one with silver swapped out - and man, is it pretty. I work mostly in a basement so it's darker down here and the silver positively glows. The reflective paint looks sharp.
