Thank You!!!

Thank you to everyone who was part of the drop this past Friday night! It was a wild release for us, in that we had never run all our molds in one launch before. This was fun and also slightly horrifying! My apologies for the fast burn rate on the Deep Space Glyans. I thought that because the configuration could be made from the other stuff available that it would just kind of be a fun extra thing on the menu. That was definitely not the case! Running all the new Hub Sets with the dome area painted seemed like it would limit some potential builds, so the DSGs were set up as more of an experiment. Next time there will be more of of them available.

The numbers in general worked out pretty well (aside from the DSG) and most of the items stayed active for longer than usual. The limits on a few things were put in place to try to ensure that everyone got a chance at some of the more busy items (based on past launches). The traffic was our highest yet, and the site seemed to hold up much better than last time, with very few reported problems with the store's performance. Overall the night was fun.

The next wave of stuff will bring back a few colors that might be a bit unexpected for some of you old timers. A few shades that have not rolled out in a while. The vinyl side of things will take a different route as well, with a "less is more" approach in the paint department. Hopefully you guys will like what's on deck when it shows up!

In the near future, keep your eyes on the Callgrim blog. Jesse has some absolutely wild projects coming together that will push things to a whole new level on the full production side of things. I think that his next release will be something to measure all other projects by. If you are into heavily painted deluxe battle machines, you will be extremely happy come late April.

Thank you again from all of us over here at Onell. It will forever amaze me that we are allowed to make these little toys, and that somewhere out there they each have a place to call home.
That's 100% thanks to you.


EDIT: Thanks for the sharp eyes Papioca!

  1. Congratulations for this launch. I'm sad not being able to be part of it but you can be sure that I will still be one of your supporter.

  2. Thanks for all the fun stuff you bring each time Matt!! I have been collecting your stuff for quite some time now, and this launch had me just as excited as earlier launches (if not more), such as the Wave 5 pack, and getting ole Phanost for the first time. :)

    I love watching this Glyos project evolve and mutate, and spread into countless collaborations/spin-offs.

    Can't wait to see what else is in-store for 2012!!

  4. Thanks Matt and congrats on another super successful update. The worst part about a drop is the wait between d-day and that shipping email! (well and the wait between drops of course!)

    Excited for the rest of 2012 if THIS is any indication of what's in store!! And very happy to see older colorways coming back as looking through the archives I missed a LOT of good stuff

  6. Congrats on another successful launch Matt! I've been addicted since the days of Junkshop, but I never cease to be amazed by the magic you guys work!

  7. Thanks to you too!
    You made an excellent toy line.

    Quick Question though...
    Are all the little sprites that show up on the Store icon available somewhere? I love collecting little gifs.

    1. The Store icon images are as follows:

      I think the spirtes themselves are recolours of the ones from the "Make Your Own Glyos Image" Passcode game.

  8. From me and my little kid brother, thank you for making these wonderful toys that we can give homes to!

    Are there any ideas on when the next wave might be? I'd like to really save up my money for it, so I can finally get a Heavy-Armoured Rig! ....and probably a bunch more vinyl things.

    1. Every other month is a good estimate. The next drop will probably be May.

    2. Alrighty! No time to lose, then. Hehe.

  9. Thanks for another excellent drop, Matt! Especially one that was so build-centric! More of those in the future, perhaps? Can't wait to get building with those Hub Sets.

    Which I now think I've pointed out in every comment I've left regarding this drop. Whoops!

    1. Clearly, we need more building. As much, in fact, as possible.

      Hub Sets certainly help!

  10. This is, by far, my favorite toyline out there right now so thank you and the rest of the crew for making all this possible.

    I can't wait for more stuff from you and will there ever be more passcodes, or something similar to what Jesse does with his Callgrim toys with bits of story attached to the blog posts?

  12. Huge thanks to you and your crew Matt!
    Loved this drop! Looking forward to the little hub droids! :D
    Very excited to see what colors you've got in mind for the next release, and equally excited for Callgrim's big project!
    All the best to you guys!

  13. I'm a new fan, just got my first ever set of a gitd buildman and some axis joints (along with a phase arm set so generously thrown in) and Glyos has rapidly shot up to one of my favorite toylines in my collection. Not just because of the great toys themselves, but also because of the great people behind it!

    My first ever drop was really exciting, and I'm really looking forward to future drops!

  14. I am also a new-ish collector; I was able to get some of the pieces from your last release, but too late to get the really popular ones. If I could, I would like to vote for a re-release of the gray and orange color combination. I thought that one worked really well, and it was what brought my attention to your line from articles on Actionfigurepics.com and Thefwoosh.com.

    Thanks for the great toys!

  15. Stupidly excited for future releases from you guys, and I can't wait to see what new-old colors you have in store for the next drop.

    Can't wait to start buildin' with these things, another great release guys! :-D

  16. Naw, we should be thanking you! Congrats to the whole Onell crew; this was a fantastic drop! Looking forward to sending my guys to Zorennor!

  17. This will be my first big vinyl purchase, aside from the occasional Rig. I've got some great projects planned, and I can't wait to get started! Thanks again for the continuing fun, big man! :D

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thank you Matt and Onell crew! I can't say that enough. For me, and I know for others, Glyos fills us with the joy of being a kid again. Other toylines bring back a nostalgic twinge, Glyos brings me right back to being ten and sitting on the floor playing with a pile of LEGOs (or whatever toys). Thanks again!

  19. "Tags: glyan, HENSHIN CYBORG, ... VOSS, ..."

    If you make an Infection Gobon along with the new Voss, I will buy at least 3.

    1. I fear a potential Voss wave. That goes for pretty much any of the clear colorways.

  20. if you make anything voss...... ill pee a little. maybe alot :)

    1. I think a whole lot of collectors will pee a lot!!!

    2. Just saw this myself. The thought of voss/infection colored Glyans, and even voss/infection DSGs is enough to make me happy in the pants.

  21. conversion sets!
    they sold out leaving so the rest of the vinyl behind in the last drop. i wanted to make some specific builds that relied on the conversion sets but after they sold out i didn't want to gamble by picking up the rest of the parts and hope that someone would sell the conversion sets on the forums.
    just what happened to me but this drop is going to be different i'm assuming with reintroduction of colorways! can't wait to see what's in store
    (literally.)

  22. This is awesome to see the
    Onell fan base/customer base
    grow more and more!

    Thanks Matt for tweaking each
    drop based on what you've learned
    from previous drops to make each
    one better and better. I'm guessing
    the glow Pheyaos is in the pipeline
    heading our way :D

  23. Thanks for always doing your best, Matt, even when things get crazy (which, as I understand, they often are). It's always appreciated, and may it continue to bring you good fortune in the future!

    As for this wave, I can't wait to gets my hands on the new parts; as it is, I'm already wishing I had bought more to play and experiment with! Just hope that these colors will return someday — maybe to become a new Standard?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thank You! The best toys and the best customer service of any company.. ever? YES.

    Do hope we see a return of Sullkren for those who missed out at some point! And more blocks :)

    Thanks again, and can't wait to start playing!
