Bit Figs: Wave 15

A small selection of new and rare items have been added to the Culture Pirates shop, including GITD Space Series 1, and for the first time online, the original Animal Series 1 Display!

We're officially 3 years into the Bit Figs vending venture, and it's still a trip to find these little Quarter Munchers in the wild, especially now with the Glyos Space Series in full rotation.

There is also a new subset of Ninjas hitting vending machines in select areas, and we're working on some exciting bonus content to level up the gameplay... more info to come in the fall!

Rene-Cades!

Cady is at again, this time tackling the new Renegades!

Hey Bubba, this is now one of my all time favorites!

Also, your Uncle Ralph will no doubt appreciate the use of those white gel pens.

Wicked, wicked good, kiddo!

Thank You!!!

Huge thanks to you guys for a super charged 12th anniversary release! You were even able to scramble Shopify's circuits, which up until last Sunday we'd never seen happen before! Luckily, Shopify was right on top of things, and resolved the issues quickly, allowing us to stay on track without closing down the store (Paypal PTSD!). We really appreciate the level of patience that you each showed as we worked through the surprise technostorm!

Like everything around here, we'd been planning the details of this wave for quite some time, so finally being able to share felt really good, despite the temporary store weirdness. Connecting all the dots to allow for production Renegades was challenging, but the pathway eventually opened up with some gentle bludgeoning. For those that have been into this stuff for years, I hope that finally seeing the Renegades in production was worth the extremely long wait.

An extra tip of the hat goes to Jesse D and the Toy Pizza Empire for supplying the Renegades with some KOTS powered mechanical menace in the form of the Rift Renegade Construct! Make sure to hit their store tomorrow afternoon for a new wave of UV reactive figures!

Once again, we want to send out a gigantic thank you to Ralph Niese for such a perfect set of new illustrations, commemorating the anniversary as only he could do. We've been collaborating and building the Glyos narrative with Ralph since back in 2010! Ralph, Marcus and I not only have a deep creative connection, but more importantly have a brotherly bond. This includes driving each other crazy at times, but I'm sincerely grateful that we've been able to make so much stuff together for so long. Continuing that trend, be on the lookout for the above illustration to appear as a 1980s fueled sticker sheet in the near future!

Looking towards our next release, the timing should land Wave 83 sometime in mid-September. Expect some more surprises to welcome in the Fall!

As of this post, all orders since last Sunday (barring what came in today) have shipped out, including all internationals. We had a full house for packing this time, and as always, Michelle and Pj were in top form. We all worked triple time to try and get the packages out to everybody as quickly as possible. Barn tunes were a blend of Yumi Zouma (first half packing) and simply replaying Avengers: Endgame (second half packing) on loop!

Special shout out to the our brothers Nate Baertsch and Iz for visiting for a few days during the release. They held down the fort while Marcus and I scrambled to get the store cured and made the night a lot less hectic! I'm getting super psyched for your new project, Nate!

Wrapping up, even if we were to close up shop in a tariff ridden toy implosion tomorrow, I would still feel like we lasted longer than we could have ever asked for. We'll keep pushing it as long as we're able, and I promise we'll stay true to what makes Glyos something special, which is of course, each one of you.

Thanks again from the whole crew for 12 years!

Thank You!!!

Thank you for a great Wave 81! We spent the last week in overdrive hammering through the orders, finally wrapping up late last night. As of this writing, everything has hit the post, including all international packages. We're seeing many new names in the processing of orders, no doubt due to Pheyaos opening up some alternate dimensions since its debut.

The old Rothan color combination was really satisfying to explore again, as both Marcus and I are nuts about the classic Rat Fink green (and all things Big Daddy Roth). Coupled with the dino-inspired Tyraxsis hues, Wave 81 made for some pretty good primitive building themes around here. Since Mori is also a huge fan of dinosaurs (check out his instagram), we couldn't resist diving into some Jurassic action early in the lifespan of the PVC Pheyaos. Combined with the Villser in particular, the possibilities for more savage builds open right up!

Extra special thanks once again to our German brother, Ralph Niese, for bringing a new quartet of truly wicked illustrations into the mix. A launch doesn't feel complete without Ralph's art, and we were able to enjoy a double dose of Wave 80 and 81 action this time! Thank you Ralpho! Your skills never cease to impress at the highest level.

Speaking of great new art, the Pheyaos drawing above was done by none other than Cady Jayne herself, who just wrapped up 8th grade. Watching her artistic abilities come into focus over the years has been the best, and she'll still take requests from her old man! Love this one, Bubba!

The turnout for this round was intense! Michelle, Pj and I really had our hands full in the shipping department, and we couldn't thank you guys enough for that. Michelle clocked some serious hours making sure all the orders were processed and packed correctly, and even though he'd just had his own Geo release to contend with, Pj still rolled in to assist. Two total powerhouses! Barn tunes were more spartan this time to allow tighter focus due to my ridiculous naming system and the confusion it brings to the packing process. Once we got cooking, some Yumi Zouma, Fritz and the Tantrums and TBS echoed through the barn. Pj, my voice is still thrashed from that damn TBS.

Our next release is set for late July and will mark our 12th anniversary in full production. Should be a fun one!

Reemerging from the events surrounding the appearance of the Atarikoth Comet and the devastating Diversus Gate Incident that followed, Gatekeeper Viyer once again turned his focus on the study and genetic manipulation of the most unique and powerful entities found throughout the Glyos System and beyond.
Accompanied by his loyal bodyguard and friend, Traveler Evenollus, Viyer crossed through the Zorennor Rift aboard his rebuilt Edgeliner Marezioc in search of the original Villser homeworld, Odravunn, and the untold lifeforms rumored to exist there.
However, before reaching their destination, the Edgeliner was attacked by an unknown, cycloptic creature that possessed bizarre and incredible dimensional abilities. After a long and exhaustive battle due to the its extraordinary regenerative properties, the chaotic beast was finally repelled by the brave actions of Evenollus, who suffered near fatal damage in the process of phasing through the monster's body.
Desperate to save the life of his companion, Viyer infused Evenollus with a combination of hyper powered Mordireus energy and a captured sample of the very beast that almost destroyed him ...
