Bio-Masters: Wave 5

Construction-Minded Terror, Pat Bussey, has another wickedly specialized Bio-Mass Monster set for release later tonight, at 9PM CST (10PM EST), over in his store.

Pat's latest gang of monstrosities marks one of the first times that all of our in-house accessories have been available outside of the Onell site, and the new "Deconstructor" Unit shown in Pat's artwork above really delivers something exciting, imaginative and just super fun. Make sure you check out Pat's continuing story arc as well (a familiar entity may be meddling with the Deconstructor code).

This one sports an extra power packed punch, Pat! Love these themed waves!

Bit Figs: Grab Bags

More action in the Glyoverse: Bit Figs Grab Bags!

Each one contains 4 random Bit Figs, pulled from the entire series, including one or more rare figures from the past / present / future. All mystery packs come on a header card for the giving season.

Also in store: Bit Figs Hybrid Set 2! Continue your "Pheyden Blue" collection with 10 more tiny companions.

We hope everyone has a great holiday weekend with their families and friends. We're thankful everyday for your fully Glyos compatible support!

Warlords of Wor: Wave 2

Brandon Michael Barker's awesome new Warlords of Wor full production series has unleashed Wave 2, available right now over in his store!

The independently produced Warlords of Wor resin brand has expanded to become a Glyos compatible PVC sister line to Spy Monkey's hit Battle Tribes, utilizing the same base "buck" body with a selection of all new PVC character specific parts. A natural fit in every way.

Featured above is Brandon's main Mutant Muck Menace, Bog-Nar, decked out in his all new Toxic Inferno mode (a great match to The Godbeast's now classic clear "Infection Red" PVC).

Keep an eye on Brandon's growing range of PVC heroes and villains as they steadily invade the Glyoverse and beyond!

Designer Con 2017

DCon 2017 has been the best one yet, and to bring some of the convention magic home to you we made sure to set aside half of the two DCon special "Portal Variation" Villser for the store. Both variations of the Morphic Villser (shown above) were made in equal amounts and are currently available in the store, along with some remaining customer service stock of the recent Noboto Portal Variation and a handful of Sarvostars.

We'll be at booth #1002 all throughout the day, so swing by if you're in attendance and we can catch up!

Thank You!!!


Thank you for bringing Wave 68 to life! We had such an awesome time working on this round, thanks to the unique talents of our friends Glen, Nate, Ralph and Pat (his all new artwork is shown above-double thanks, Pat!). Exploring the world of the Glyknights has been a running sub-theme over here and the details really came into focus through collaborating with these artists.The creative approach that each one of them chose to take with our weird characters really added the magic, and we're deeply grateful for all the time and effort they collectively dedicated to this release.

So far the production numbers for this round have held up pretty well, with the majority of the items still available a few days in. Based on the flow, the general stock should be in decent shape leading up to DCon next week, though a good chunk of the new selections are definitely getting down there.

Speaking of DCon, we're on track to make the annual trip out to sunny Pasadena next week! Please swing by and see us (booth #1002) if you're able to attend the show. We love spending time with everybody at what's become the best convention for independent operators on the planet, and to keep things cooking we'll have a couple experimental mini production runs to share at the show. Extra special thanks to Ben and George for always making our visits to DCon an incredible experience.

As of this writing, almost all the orders from the launch have hit the post, with the last of them heading out the door today, including all international orders. Michelle and Pj were beyond powerhouses, working like crazy to keep things moving on schedule. 

Our last wave of 2017 is tentatively set for early December, and will feature some Gendrone action in an all new metallic hue (and another new hue will debut as well). Argen will face an unexpected adversary that's been creeping around in the shadows since the Henshin III Wave.

Thanks again for keeping the bus rolling throughout all of 2017! It's been an action packed year and we still truly love sharing this stuff with you, more than ever.

Order of the Glyknights II


Extra special thanks to the ultimate art wizard, Ralph, for the outstanding artwork! Unreal!!!

UPDATE: As some of you may have experienced last night, the store was having a few issues, causing some back end hiccups. This had us scrambling a bit and in the minor mayhem during the pre-launch the description for the SARVOSTAR MYSTERY FIGURE was incorrectly entered into the store. We didn't catch it until a couple hours into the sale and made the correction as soon as it was spotted. I (Matt) take full responsibility for the misstep. There is NO VARIATION on this Sarvostar Mystery Figure production run. Our sincere apologies for the fumble. Please send any refund requests or inquires to our contact email and we'll get you sorted out ASAP. 

For what it's worth, the heads that do actually comprise the Sarvostar set offer some pretty neat options, directly related to the last Alphaden release as well as some of our old school waves that both new and long time customers may enjoy.

Thank you!


Glyknights Theme


Gigantic thanks to our insanely talented friends, musical mastermind Glen Schricker (Circuits and Brains), and toy industry fan favorite Nate Baertsch, for a truly killer one-two Glysword Powered strike!

These guys are both at the very top of their highly competitive fields, and we are beyond psyched to work with both of them once again.

Thank you Schrick! Thank you Nate! You guys killed it!

Flying Vipers - The Shadow Tape

The Flying Vipers have emerged from their den with another analog gem. This one contains a few extended vocal tracks in the Jamaican Disco style.

In the mid 70s, "discomixes" became a popular way for DJs at clubs (discothèques) to showcase a new single followed by a dub remix, all on one side of a 12" 45 RPM record. This resulted in some amazing 7-8 minute tracks evolving a radio single into a dancehall hit. We wanted to pay tribute to this tradition, but since we recorded this direct to cassette (and pressing vinyl is crazy expensive), we thought the cassingle was a fun way to go.

Much respect to Jay Champany, who recorded and mixed everything, in addition to writing the lyrics and voicing the tracks. Big thanks to the Big Guy here as well for illustrating Viper #3.

Today is also Cassette Store Day, and this release is an official part of the Jump Up Records CSD line-up, which includes a few classic albums from my 90s heroes The Toasters and The Slackers. They've also re-issued a killer cover album of Michael Jackson tunes done in a dub reggae style that have been played quite a lot at Onell HQ over the years, especially their version of "Rock With You".

Hope some of you enjoy the tunes!

PS- New Englanders, Vipers support Jamaican legend Lee "Scratch" Perry on 10/24 in Boston!

The Zullen Invade!

Tonight marks the debut of our long time friend and collaborator, Mike MZ's full PVC production of his wicked Zullen!

Packed with four different head sculpts, the Zullen is the product of a multi-level team up that was spearheaded by Mike himself. Tons of creative DNA was hybridized into the final design, and some blood was even spilled along the way (I nearly chopped my thumb off tweaking the sculpt because I'm a fool). Huge congratulations go out to Mike, Rudy, Marty, and Pat for all their great work in bringing this new creation into reality. It was a blast to be part of the process and seeing another project come into focus never gets old.

Way to go, Mike! Excited to see where the Zullen take us next!

Battle Tribes: Wave 9

Spy Monkey Creations is set to unleash some fresh mayhem over in their store tonight, October 6th, at 6PM PDT (9PM EDT East Coast)!

This new assortment spotlights some excellent super vivid injected PVC color and crazy paint across the whole wave. Those Old Gods really like to gang up and monopolize those BT bucks around here!


Another exciting chapter, SMC! Really love that Onyx combination!

Mission: Power Lords


Our old buddies, the Four Horsemen, have been running a special pre-order for the continuation of their awesome Power Lords line for the last month, and it wraps up later today (October 6th) at 3PM EDT.

Although we moved in different directions over the last few years professionally, we still remain great friends, and everyone here at Onell has been in full support of both Mythic Legions as well as the re-relaunch of Power Lords. The amount of work the guys (especially Eric) have poured into the redesigning process on these new super articulated Power Lords is deep, and continues to stand as an absolute passion project. As much as it was fun to work on this property together years ago, it's still been cool getting to see the 4H resurrect this strange yet glorious action figure classic, one more time.

If you enjoyed the first and second iterations of Power Lords, it's safe to say you'll love this third journey into the combined minds of the legendary Wayne Barlowe and the inimitable Four Horsemen.

Special thanks to Eric for the images shown above. Raygoth is the king!

Also, I've watched this little promo video about 50 times now, love the vibe Ryan Lord captured.

Bit Figs: Animal Series 3

Get ready for wild mini-adventures with Animal Series 3: Safari!

Five all-new characters to collect, each available in five unique colors. Look for them in vending machines across North America this fall (featuring the elusive painted figures), and grab mystery 5-packs now at the Culture Pirates shop. Also check out the shiny, new hologram eggshell stickers just added.

Matt and I had a lot of fun creating this series, which features some of my personal favorite Bits to date. Tiny travelers hopping across crocodile heads can finally be played out on my desk! Thanks once again to Josh and the Dumphy family at SSM Vending for helping us bring these pixels to life.

It's pretty exciting to see the fourth series of Bit Figs hit the streets in the span of one year. We are equally thrilled knowing there are more to come by early 2018... the next round may take things to another dimension.

Bio Masters: Wave 4

The fiendish Master of Mutations, Pat Bussey, just rolled out his fourth wave of wicked Bio-Mass Monsters, now available for capture over in his store.

With an innovative mix of painted clear PVC, a mystery "brain" insert and a strategic application of clever tampo printing, Bio-Mass Monster Cerebelax charts some all new territory on an already awesome mold. This figure is not to be missed and is made even more striking by combining it with the Mordireus color matched Bio-Mass Monster Mind Phantom!

Killer round, Pat! Great art, great figures and a great line.

Thank You!!!

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.
