Thank You!!!

Glyos Transmission Blog - 7 August, 2017 - 22:52
Thank you for a truly super 10th anniversary rollout! We're so happy to finally be able to share the Villser with you guys, especially since the road to bringing this character into reality had been paved with some unexpected and challenging turns. Our whole clan deeply appreciates the extra support that you've shown for the Villser debut, and for once again keeping the pathway open for us to summon new creatures from beyond the Rift.

As of this writing all packages have hit the post, save a small handful. Michelle, Pj and I burned the midnight oil over the weekend and hammered through a pretty substantial cardboard labyrinth. Even CC got in on the act (some of you may even find some "bonus artifacts" on your slips, courtesy of our little comedian). We must have listened to Toro y Moi's new Boo Boo album 40 times while we were in the barn packing (thank you to Marcus and sorry to Pj).

Our next wave is set for mid-September and will see the return of the Glyknights as well as some expanded Gendrone (Gobon) action to take on the Villser!

Thank you again for warmly welcoming our new addition to the System. I personally can't wait to see what you build with these new parts and hope that, most of all, you really have some fun while exploring the new figure's landscape.

Villser Standard

We really do look at the Glyos project as one big connected super loop, so after 10 years of producing stuff, this new Villser needed to be the Omega to Pheyden's Alpha. Something to challenge the Travelers on equal ground.

The following are some info bits regarding this new PVC Villser:

-The Villser stands 3.5 inches tall and is made up of 20 parts in its "Standard" humanoid build. Each Villser also comes packed with a bonus Switch pin (there is already one counted within the backpack as well) for double Fusion Builds. So 21 parts total with each Villser including the bonus Switch Pin.

-Figure breakdown is 3 part arms, 3 part legs, pelvis, belt, 6-way chest, chest insert, backpack with Switch Pin, neck, head, "brain cap" and the previously mentioned bonus Switch Pin.

-Some of the original sketches and concepts that I had played with over the years (there have been many of them) focused on a variety of angles and piles of small stacked parts (and would eventually spawn the actual Axis Joints, Hub Set and Swing Joints). Then, over time, the Villser evolved into something that focused much more on a very buildable, but not overly complicated, multidimensional design.

-More hours were spent working on the potential contained builds for this guy than anything I'd ever worked on before.

-Older experiments with the Voyager Argen concept were a heavy influence on the direction of the final figure and helped visualize the metamorphic functionality that's at the heart of the Villser, both as a physical figure and within its story arc.

-This creature also had to integrate the existing accessories, especially Axis Joints, into a handful of specific "intended" builds, focusing on one particular "savage" strain of the character itself. The Axis Joints factor into much of the original Villser Virus story arc, so this version of the Villser needed to have a special flow with the Axis design specifically.

-Contained double figure "Fusion" builds were on the checklist to incorporate as a focus, with some extra freaky Barlowe style configurations emerging from the combined concept explorations.

-The Villser base body had to be variable enough so that another major character could come to fruition through a future Extra Set mold upgrade currently being worked on.

My hope is that anyone who's been playing with Glyos for a long time will be intrigued by the mix of new and familiar parts that make up this beefy critter, and folks who are just discovering this world can get a true feel for what Glyos is, in a simple and easy way.

Passcode Playthrough

Glyos Transmission Blog - 2 August, 2017 - 21:24

In celebration of officially hitting the 10 year mark, we've put together a special Passcode Playlist that covers almost every entry in the series!

Creating each installment was always a labor of love, even when finishing things would take hours or days longer than expected (like the Glyaxia Incident of 2010). For anyone that may not have completed a game, or wants to rewatch the stories on the big screen, there is now over an hour of video to stream on YouTube.

Extra special thanks to our friend Rich Vreeland, whose music became not only the soundtrack, but the inspiration for many moments throughout the series.

Michelle, Matt and I are SUPER excited to debut the new figure tomorrow. There will not be a new Passcode this time, but check back for big reveals leading up to the launch tomorrow night at 9:30 PM ET!
