Everything seemed to go pretty well, with only the Syclodoc zipping through a little too fast for comfort (production numbers have been increased for the next version) and some reports of a slow store interface. In general, most of the stuff hung around a bit longer than usual, but still moved at a solid pace. As of this writing we still have the Stealth Armorvor in the store, even with a 4 per limit, which I hope means we are getting closer to meeting the demand for that little beast. All shipping will start at the beginning of next week.
The 2013 schedule has been deep in the planning stages for a while, and I'm personally hoping that we can explore a number of fun new projects together throughout the coming year. One of the planned waves will pay a more direct homage to the old F P Adventure People space toy line, with some solid colors being released without detail lines but with added tampos and spray masks, to hopefully keep things interesting. This will also allow for everything to completely match up when building with the Armorvor. Runs with the detail lines will absolutely be turning up, but I'm very curious about your collective opinion on the matter. Do you guys prefer the detail lines or do you like the figures more without them? I'm right in the middle with my own preferences, as certain colors shot in PVC seem to look better without the added lines, yet others really look more realized with the extra definition. This topic will be touched on more and more as 2013 gets rolling and also as we move ahead in the years to come (if we're still around!).
The Delphi is still in the prototype phase, and on track to hit steel once completed. There are a couple of smaller things that are also in line for full production, which are pretty simple, but add some different aspects to the figures that we currently make. I've been trying to get as much sculpting in as possible, but wrapping up the year is always more of a challenge than anticipated around here! That being said, I did manage to "remaster" a few older items which might make a few of you smile.
One last bit, which is connected to the recent Lost Projects posting spree. Which project would you guys want to see, if any, come to fruition from those posts? I'm kind of leaning towards the Villser, as there is some content set up to explore those strange creatures. Also, after looking through the old designs I'm feeling pretty compelled to finish the sculpt. Let us know what you would like to see, and if there is something older that you might want to finally see in full production. Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
To wrap up, I just want to say thank you once again, for making this the best year for Glyos yet. We talk about you guys a lot around here, and getting to know more of you throughout 2012 has made doing this even more satisfying. The connection between all of us feels stronger than ever, and our intention is to really fortify that bond in 2013.
Thank you for spending some time here, and for continuing to be part of this very small operation. You guys remain the absolute best.
