Return of the Banimon Red Army Men!

Glyos Transmission Blog - 28 February, 2015 - 18:58
Overcoming a multitude of obstacles thrown at him by both nature and by man, our good friend Boris Savic will finally roll out the return of his Banimon Red Army Men tonight, February 28th, at 9:30PM EST over in his store!

Making its second appearance in the spotlight as a full production vinyl piece is the Banimon Bunkerbuster tank, this time decked out in a green that might be familiar to those of you who like your plastic in Volkriun hues. This new Bunkerbuster is fully compatible with all of the vinyl we produce around here, and its colors match right up to last year's VSF wave.

I had some fun taking a modified Bunkerbuster (shown above with a few of our parts mixed in) for a spin across the piles of snow out back as the sun was setting, and the little armored machine proved once again that it's truly a blast to play with.

Well done, Boris! I'm loving this tank!

VIZ Media, LLC, the largest distributor and licensor of manga and anime in North America, delivers an engrossing new series from one of the most exciting voices in contemporary manga with the launch of Requiem of the Rose King on March 10th. Inspired by an early draft of William Shakespeare’s Richard III, one of literature’s most famous and polarizing political dramas, Requiem of the Rose King was created by Aya Kanno, widely known for her previous manga series Blank Slate and Otomen (both published by VIZ Media). Requiem of the Rose King is rated ‘T’ for Teens and will carry a print MSRP of $9.99 U.S. / $12.99 CAN. Future volumes of the continuing series are scheduled to be published domestically twice a year. In the series, Richard, the ambitious third son of the House of York, is a tortured soul who believes he is damned from birth to eternal darkness. But is it truly fate that sets him on the path to personal destruction? Or his own tormented longings? Aya Kanno’s dark fantasy finds the man who could be king standing between worlds, between classes, between good and evil. Continued...

Blasted Earth Wolf

Super7 - 24 February, 2015 - 17:34

Once upon a time, there was a thing called Earth Wolf. He lived and undied in a magic forest full of things and so forth, until one day he was wandering around with his mind also wandering around, walked smack into a pretty sunset, and got it all over himself. Being an outdoorsy sort, he didn’t really worry too much about cleaning up afterwards. And so, forever blasted by the colors, he lived or died the rest of his days doing the things that an Earth Wolf do, the end.

The Blasted Earth Wolf is cast in vibrant orange vinyl with plenty of colorfully sprayed details, available Thursday, March 5th, 12noon PST. $95 ea.
