Glyarmor Engage!

With Glyaxia Command pushed to its limits and on the defensive, the combined Armorvor Armies swiftly establish outposts across the worlds of Volkria, Sonesidar, Reydurra and Rilleco, crushing any opposition through the use of their powerful Black Core technology. The Lost Children of the Delphi now stand on the edge of reclaiming what they believe is their collective birthright ... the entirety of the Glyos System.

However, not all the children of the Delphi wish for war and conquest. From a glimmering star far beyond reach, emissaries from a mysterious race called the Varteryx appear before Glyaxia Command, led to the Capital Planet Metran by the enigmatic Traveler know as Hades. Benevolent creatures not unlike their creators, the Varteryx share their advanced discoveries with Glyaxia Command in an effort to balance the scales against their aggressive brethren, the Armorvors and Neo Granthans. 

Joining forces with the most advanced thinkers on Metran, the Varteryx and Glyaxia Command unite to create the Glyarmor aboard Hades' Block Base Cerberus. Greatly augmenting a user's natural abilities through a psychic fusion to the armor itself, the Glyarmor also serves as a direct countermeasure to Black Core technology.

Employed by the Elite Enforcer Units of Glyaxia Command, select Travelers meld with the newly developed Glyarmor to evolve into a previously unseen Neo Sarvos form.

Now with a small measure of hope restored and a reforged resolve, a battle-worn Glyaxia Command slowly rises to settle the score.

  1. This looks amazing! I can only imagine how well it looks with axis joints and phase arms. Well done!

  2. Thanks!

    The current model shown above can be used with all the Travelers, the Glyan, Noboto, Buildman,the Crayboth and Callgrim. Trying to get the parts to convincingly connect with each of our main molds was the biggest challenge.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with this one!

    1. This week is strong with the Force, Steve!

      We ordered a good chunk of the Enforcer Glyarmor, so hopefully it lands on just the right spot.

  4. Man! Love this!
    That helmet is design perfection, and seeing the entire design, in all of its glory, makes it all the more stunning!

    1. Thanks Ben! Can't wait to have your new Galaxxor wage battle against (or command) these little buggers!

  5. We good guy Stormtroopers now.

    Seriously, though, there's some nice paint masking going on here. And the new story elements are epic! The Varteryx lead to more questions, and given the armor's compatibility across molds, maybe a sign that their endgame is to try and reunify Glyos.

    Given that teaser from a few days back, though, I wonder: how does the Dark Spectre version look in regular lighting?

    1. The Varteryx definitely have plans in motion!

      I'm excited to expand on their existence, and to see what you guys come up with as things unfold.

      As usual, they are a concept that has deep ties to my old weirdo stories, so I feel a certain nostalgia when writing about them.

      What Dark Spectre Glyarmor? (heh heh)

    2. Oh, don't you tease me like that, man XD I have my heart set on a new suit of armor for Bios. Also, that Varteryx sculpts! Amazing!

  6. Why must I be destitute at a time such as this?
    Another hyperspace homerun Matt!

  7. Matt. This really is beyond. The lines, visual weight, and overall design are just beautiful. Also really like the way the collar area sits higher than the rest of the armor. I know the Glyarmor has been a long work in progress for you to get it "just right" and it wouldn't be exaggerating to say that you nailed it.

  8. Glad this is seeing the light of day, Matt. This is so exciting!!

    1. Watch your mouth! Skeleden is the cat's pajamas.

  10. ...you made a Super Sarvos? ...you're going to get my money forever now, you know this, right? This might be the first one I come back for more on once limits are lifted... That hits me so much harder than Skeleden did.

  11. You had me at NEO-SARVOS...stellar design!

    1. BTW, I hope this doesn't mean that the Classic Sarvos is being retired, I'm all for progression, but he's one of my favorites.

  12. I will admit that the unarmored figure would have made more sense to have been Sarvos, especially due to his rarity of appearance. Regardless, this thing was probably the coolest thing to come from Onell this year.

  13. I got the clear set of extra Glyarmor. No matter what I do, I can't seem to get the armor on to a Traveler's hands as shown in the pictures here. Is there some trick to it?

    1. Try warming those parts up a little before installing them. I use a hair dryer directed through a cut half moon flap chopped into the top of one of the cardboard boxes we ship in. We call this the "hot box" method and it really helps with softening the various pieces up, especially during the colder months.

      You can also roll those more challenging hand armor parts between your fingers for a minute to increase the flexibility of the form.

      The Glyarmor was designed to be ultra flexible when warmed up, but pretty rigid when at a normal temperature (to hold its shape and keep a tight fit). Finding the right balance is quite tricky when producing them.

      It might just take a little experimenting to find the installation technique that works the best for you.
