    1. Right now it's looking like a release next Wednesday , the 5th of September. The timing is a little odd due to my upcoming travel schedule.

      Some highlights from this wave include a Black Armorvor with some painted accents, a black Armodoc that has a kind of neat look to it and a new release of Hades, for the first time with production scarf! It's a small detail, but I've been waiting literally years to finally get that little head piece into a mold.

      There will also be a compliment of GITD Green parts, including the return of Spectre Pheyden.

      This is a lower key release, but the items should hopefully be useful for builds and customs, as well as for the overall story arc that's been rolling along.

      Also, the black PVC has a very nice depth to it, not too glossy but not to gray. Almost a satin finish to the plastic. I would say it's my favorite batch to date. The Armodoc has a particularly smooth finish that I can't stop staring at. Very different than Japanese black vinyl, which adds some spice to the works.

    2. A production scarf? Awesome! That and a black Armovor might push this drop from "low key" to "highly anticipated" among the fans!

    3. The scarf really completes Hades. Even though the urethane version was fun, it was still a little delicate. The PVC adds that element of "toy" that's been long overdue.

      The GITD Green scarves are pretty neat as well...

    4. You're killin' me, Matt. Glow scarves as well? This only gets better, doesn't it?

      Delete
    5. We modified the Axis Joint mold, so Govurom is now retired for a while.

      Whenever we run an Axis Joint color, we'll get a scarf to match from here on out (or until we get sick of scarves).

      Delete
    6. An interesting development, to say the least. Though I hope ol' Govie comes back 'round, I can say that the new option adds a bit more possibility for customization, though! Will it fit only Scar Pheyden, or will it work with the regular Pheyden sculpt as well?

      Delete
    7. Scarves!? Awesome!! I never got to get any of the resin scarves, so I'm super-excited to see them make the production stage. I'll miss Govurom but I have a LOT of heads so seeing him go on hiatus for a little while isn't a terribly bad thing.

      Delete
  3. Cool, Matt! Here's hoping I'll have a little to send your way for this drop!

    1. I think that your new batch of customs will make everybody very happy! Awesome builds and classic color selections. That Blade Runner one is my favorite, and it's a tough choice!

      Delete
    2. Thanks for the kind words! I just hope everyone else enjoys that "mini-drop" nearly as much!

      Delete
    3. The latest batch is your best to date. You really have a great style with the construction choices.

      You, Moral, and Piotmetans exist on some kind of mechatronic wavelength, all possessing complimentary approaches that work so well together.

      Inspiring creations!

      Delete
    4. You're too kind! I can only speak for myself, but I'm only using the tools you created straight from your imagination. None of it would be possible were it not for your madness fueling the whole process! (Not to mention, of course, your constant encouragement and support!) Thanks again!

      Delete
    5. What Roy said! These toys really know how to get the creative juices flowing.

      This new batch of stuff sounds pretty exciting! GITD Green is one of my favorites. I'll be snagging what I can.

      Thanks, Matt!

  4. Ooooooo. I really love these Tampo Print emblems, they're just so neat.

    1. Me too, Chris! I would love to buy any/all of them on a t-shirt. Seriously, one shirt, one symbol, I'm totally loving it.

      Delete
    2. Thanks you two! Marcus, Jesse and I have talked about this a number of times. What symbol would you guys like to see first if we made a small run of shirts?

      Delete
    3. If you do Glyaxian I'd buy a couple, especially if they were in different color shirts. But I would probably buy one of each of these symbols on a t-shirt as long as you were to do mediums. They're just too neat to not have, plus the secret handshake factor of seeing someone in one is a nice bonus.

      Delete
    4. I vote for the Hades emblem on a shirt

      Delete
    5. I second the Hades emblem idea. It's just too iconic, if you'll forgive the pun.

      Delete
    6. Oh man, of course I think a Glyaxia symbol shirt would be tops, but this Hades one is just as cool.

      Delete
    7. I think I'd like to see the Volkriun Symbol on an olive or army green shirt, I love green and don't own nearly enough green shirts.

      (and holy crap the comments to this post quadrupled since I looked it earlier today, you guys have been busy!)

      Delete
    8. Yes Yes Yes (about the army green with Volk symbol)

  8. "a Black Armorvor with some painted accents
    a black Armodoc
    a new release of Hades
    Spectre Pheyden

    the black PVC has a very nice depth to it"

    Loving the line up

    Please tell me there is a limit on the Hades [So I don't go overboard buying them to make "Valhalla" Travelers (Black bodies w/ a Solaris Head)]

    Black PVC as in more Classified Travelers or the black on Hades

    2. Thanks Chris! There will be both Classified (Klace) and Hades in the assortment. Working out a few last minute details, but there will be some different versions if everything comes together.

      Delete
    3. Will there be any black Hub sets making a return? Or maybe a few Glow-in-the-Dark Hub sets? O_o?

      I'm looking forward to the black Armovor, I really dig that sculpt so I'm eager to get some more to do some building with. :-D

      Delete
    4. Black Hub Sets and GITD Green Hub Sets will be in the store, as well as Black Phase Arms and Axis Joints. GITD Green Axis Joints will also be back.
      The old styles return!

      Delete
    5. SWEET, I know I'll be buying some of those for my project. Work on casting those pieces was a little rocky at first, but it ended up working out in the end.

      I'm real excited about the glow Hub set, I really love that little thing so getting more colorways of it is great. GITD Axis joints I desperately need, my character Luminon lost some parts to build Gnarrltooth last year so he's itching to get back into the thick of things.

  9. The scarf returns, yes! I had to track down a resin one a year ago, but I'm glad to be able to get more, theyre so badass!

    1. "Track down"...hahaha...more like our first meeting @ C2E2 2011, you asked where you could find one and MJ just happened to have an extra to swap ya for that Batman figure he just had to have (that dad wouldn't give him anymore $ to purchase toyz w/).

      Now you will have a production scarf to go w/ your proto scarf! ;)

      You could also just wear the production one as a pinky ring to disguise your pinky finger. hehehe

  13. amazing news matt...i write you a mail yesterday.
    hope to stay sleep this time....

    ReplyDelete
  14. Man, so much awesome news you're letting us have! Govie on hiatus! Production Scarf! Armodoc sounds awesome, and black figures are useful for literally everything.

    I do have oneee question though... will we definitely see the return of the blocks and other building vinyl? Blocks are my favorite and it made me a little nervous to not see instant sell outs with them ths past drop. If they ever stop becoming profitable just shoot me an email and I will single handedly fund low runs! ..And I'm probably not kidding!

    1. The rest of the vinyl just needed a break after the heavy flow since the beginning of the year! It's OK to have it hang around, but I felt like we all needed a little pause in the vinyl movie ( though the Armodoc didn't agree with me).

      I like building with the vinyl stuff as well, and the molds will always stay in circulation. November will see some items come back, but maybe with some small "modifications"...

      Thanks for the vinyl support Rez!

  15. Scarves? Armorvors? GitD? this is too much awesomeness for a 'low key' drop! I absolutely cannot wait!

  18. love love love Hades... I love that symbol

  19. Yes! Finally, production scarves! I've been hoping for these for a long time now. I'll be sure to drop some cash your way, Matt. As for t-shirts, I'd love to see some of the classic symbols, like a pixel Pheyden head or the Glyaxia Command logo.

  20. Awesome! I cannot wait for this drop. Hopefully I won't have my night classes when the sale goes up.

  21. The best place to learn Chinese is in China. However, we understand that it isn't always possible to move here to learn Chinese language. The next best thing is to study with our experienced teachers in a virtual classroom. Online students enjoy the same excellent way of Chinese language class and custom designed courseware that we provide for our face to face clients.
