When I was putting this order together months ago, it was due to a strange series of dreams that looked much like the images that have been on the blog in the past week. Transmissions of a geometric base, created from some otherworldly hard light ice, kept creeping into my mind, night after night. The idea of making these dreams a reality seemed far away, due to a number of production issues that exist for us when running clear vinyl. I was close to writing the "Stealth Dimension" off, and not pushing for the clear vinyl, but an opportunity came up and the option for Stealth (with bubbles and waves of course) appeared for what looked like the last time. So the trigger was pulled and here we are!
Since this will be the last of the clear colorless vinyl we produce, we decided to make a larger amount than we normally do, even though the chances of it selling through at a speedy rate would definitely be far lower and we would have to invest more than usual. I imagine that the Stealth vinyl assortment should stick around for a bit longer, and I hope this run supplies you guys with some slightly cheaper fodder for building some fun configurations. You can always turn it black with a little vinyl paint if you want to make a meaner looking machine!
Up next for us will be a drop in late July. We will not be attending SDCC for the first time in almost a decade, so we want to have something special on deck to make up for not being there. July will also mark our 5th year anniversary of full production Glyos toys! We actually debuted the first wave at SDCC and I will never forget the experience as long as I live.
We owe everything to all of you, for keeping us going since the beginning, and for being there year after year as we knocked around trying to find our groove (which we are still doing). My whole family and I thank you for absolutely everything.
Shipping from last Friday's launch starts at the end of this week, and I hope you dig the clears when they land in your hands! Neo Voss aqua green may have knocked the Gliporian orange and Phase green out of my top clear spots and the Smoke makes for a pretty good utility color, lining up fairly well across the boards with the other clear and solid colors.
The clear vinyl might seem a bit bland at first, but when you start building or sticking things inside it, something about it comes to life, with an interesting stacking of clarity that looks very alien and almost organic, like viewing a weird 3D X-ray. Anyway, you get the idea.
Thanks again for being there for our latest drop!
PS -I hope you are in the mood for a return to the Real Type color style in July. Particularly colors with a classic military vibe.
