Thank You!!!

Glyos Transmission Blog - 18 September, 2017 - 22:46
Thank you for a super September release! Not sure what's happening out there exactly, but we've been seeing lots of new faces and some long lost ones as well, steadily popping up over the last few months.

To try and keep things flowing better and allow for folks (new and old alike) to have access to more than just the Buildstation after a new wave, we've been bumping the production numbers up across the boards. Nothing crazy, but hopefully just enough to keep the assortments accessible a little longer than a couple of days. The Mystery figures have been some of our more popular offerings this year, so we've spent extra time adding little twists within the twists to continue the vintage inspired fun.

In general, the Villser seems to be doing pretty good as the new kid on the block, and I've really been loving the crazy builds that you guys have been sharing. The things we create over here are far from perfect, but are always filled with heart and a ton of thought, so I wanted to personally thank you for spending some time with this new creation.

The next round is set for late October and should be fun for those that enjoy not only Halloween, but a little more AD&D as well.

As of this writing, all domestic orders have shipped out, except those that came in tonight. International orders will hit the post first thing tomorrow morning and then we are 100% shipped from this release. Michelle really worked like a machine over the last week (processing the highest amount of orders in a release this year), and Pj swept in for a mega packing special mission that was awesome to behold!

The last few months have had a lot challenges and changes around here, but last week something truly glorious happened, as our brother Marcus and his awesome wife Heidi welcomed their first child into the world. We wanted to just take a moment to send all our love out to little Coralyn Eve Beaudette! Welcome to the world, kiddo! We love you already!

Wrapping up, thank you once again for granting us the freedom to continue to create this stuff. It's especially felt when you watch lives begin and end, and really see clearly how incredibly lucky it is that we've all come together, for however long it lasts, all differences aside.

Farewell to Haruo Nakajima, The Heart of Japanese Monsters

SciFi Japan - 5 September, 2017 - 23:41
Haruo Nakajima as a young actor and Hollywood's Godzilla star on the Walk of Fame.
On August 7, 2017, the news came out that Haruo Nakajima, beloved Godzilla and Kaiju suit actor and a pioneer of the art, had passed away. Word spread through fandom quickly via social media and the outpouring a affection, grief and shock was amazing and heartfelt. At SciFi Japan, we felt a fitting tribute needed to be done and it was something that should not be rushed or thrown together. Over the last month we have been talking to people who worked closely with Mr. Nakajima to bring him to the US and around the world, to meet his fans and share his stories of the golden years of suit acting in Japanese films. We start off with an overview of his life and career, written by author Ed Godziszewski, followed by remembrances from a variety of colleagues that traveled with him over the last few years.

Bit Figs: Wave 7

Glyos Transmission Blog - 24 August, 2017 - 20:30
A new round of goods is available now at the Culture Pirates shop!

Two new glow-in-the-dark sets are on the menu, along with a very special item to commemorate 10 years of Glyos.

Since the release of the very first wave, I've had the honor of working on each color mechanical for every Onell Design figure produced. Along the way, Matt and I have discussed what a DB Pheyden would look like, and countless offshoot Travelers from beyond. It felt appropriate to finally pull the trigger during our decadal year. The resulting Pheyden, Matryx, has ties to the Bit Figs origin story (in addition to a handheld gaming system from my youth), and features our first ever 5-color chest paint tampography!

We're also excited to offer the Bit Figs Ninja Series 1 blister pack, which includes all five deluxe painted figures as seen in vending machine displays. Another SSM Vending collaboration we have in stock is the complete set of Animal Series 1 stickers.

Drift over to the Pirates shop and have fun exploring!

Clash of the Toyfinity Classics

Glyos Transmission Blog - 22 August, 2017 - 13:35
The great Toyfinity has returned with an all new line up of classic characters, pulled straight from some of their most requested files! Head over to the Toyfinity blog for all the release details and a look at some awesome new art of the special "Super Zeroid" build by our friend, the illustrating super cyborg Jason Ho!

Seeing Zintar the Explorer and Hun-Dred  produced in the tradition of their original colors has been a lot of fun, and the trend is set to continue in the coming months with some more classic combinations in the works.

An excellent rollout, John! Almost as fun as the time we nearly crashed the Mystery Machine rental on the way to Funspot. Almost.
