Bio-Masters: Wave 3

Cosmic Dungeon Master, Pat Bussey, currently has the third wave of his awesome Bio-Mass Monsters available now, over in his updated store.

Inspired by TSR's legendary Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and continuing the fantasy themed month of June across the sister Glyos companies, Pat's latest assortment is loaded with awesome colors and three special "Dark Fortress" builds (one of which even includes a "Contaminated" Hub Set).

Being able to watch Pat's creative process once again has been a blast, as he really does sink a lot of effort into the accompanying illustrations and story elements of his launches to flesh things out. Pat even constructed a scratch built set for his pics! A true passion project, all the way.

Killer work, Pat! Everything about this round is a knockout!

Bit Figs: Wave 6


The new wave of Bit Figs is available now at the Culture Pirates shop!

Mega Bit Pheyden Cosmic Wave Starcrosser is not only the first to feature special effects plastic and the new belt paint app, but these figures were run in a lower durometer for extra pliability. In hand they have a softer "minifig" feel, similar to the old Japanese Keshi lines. A limited number of unpainted sets are available as well.

Also in store is the debut of Animal Series 2: Marine Bit Figs! Five all-new coastal characters are available now in mystery 5-packs. They'll be floating around vending machines nationwide this summer where you'll have the chance to score a super rare deluxe painted figure!

Rounding things out is the second series of enamel pins, featuring new colors for Iken and Oni. We've also restocked the original glow-in-the-dark Glyos Button Set 1.

As a special thank you to all early supporters, here's a limited time offer:

Enter discount code COSMICWAVE at checkout for 20% off any order $25 and up! Expires this Friday 6/9 at midnight.

Thanks and have fun!

Destroy Babylon - Shapeshifters


Today is the official release of Shapeshifters, the latest full length album from Destroy Babylon!

This is our first DB record in six years, and so much has changed with the band (and the world) since. We expanded into a six piece with the addition of vocalist Kellee Webb, keyboardist Casey Gruttadauria and Rob's brother Sean Carmichael taking over on bass. Rob & Sean are Irish twins, making DB possibly the first band to have TWO sets of twin brothers. I point this out because it truly is something special to be part of a project with such deep connections. The core group has been making music together for 20 years now, yet we still relish in the process of playing and experimenting with sounds. Many of these songs were worked over numerous times before we settled on the final version, and some have been in our live set for years, helping us turn in our tightest batch of tunes to date. Our producer Craig Welsch also had a huge hand in pushing the band forward, and we really embraced our love of post-production effects this time around. Turn the lights low and volume up, this one goes deep!

We've never settled into one genre, and our mission since our first record has been to not only challenge the many oppressive forces of society (see: Babylon), but to also defy conventional labels in our industry. I'm super proud of this one and hope some of you will dig it.  -Marc



Marc and I spend just as much time talking about music as we do games and toys, maybe even more so. The constant flow of great new tunes streaming across the web lends itself to some major discovery sessions, as a seemingly endless array of soundscapes pop up on a daily basis. It goes without saying that we've shared a ton of music over the years.

When it comes to the music that Marc and DB create (and the variety of side projects he and his brother John work on), I'm admittedly a huge and fairly biased fan. There's a certain intangible element to actually knowing the person who is sharing a creative endeavor with you that makes it extra special. It's even better when that shared work is actually amazing.

I've spent many, many late nights in the barn, working until morning light, accompanied only by select music blaring from a small speaker tethered to an ancient wall outlet. Though some might find the experience lonesome, it never feels that way to me. When those tunes are coming from people that you call family, it's hard to feel anything but good, and DB once again makes sure of that.

Marcus and the Music ADD collective are still telling their story for all of us to hear, and Shapeshifters is so worth the listen.  -Matt
