Equisarren Centurion Valkensteel



After the emergence of the First Children and the events that followed near the Edge of Space,
 Pheyden took the remnants of the Intruder Armor that he recovered after the battle and rushed them to the enigmatic Varteryx Archimyrius within the Glyosar Dimension, where the omniscient eyes of the Elder Masters cannot see. It was there that Pheyden relayed careful instructions from the Council of Travelers for Archimyrius to create a new countermeasure for the coming conflict. 


Using a combination of various genetic codes and the Intruder remnants, Archimyrius brought forth the artificial being known as the Equisarren Centurion, created specifically to battle the powerful First Children of the Elder Masters. Possessing a quadrupedal form outfitted with warp thrusters on each foot and a dangerous array of hybrid bioweapons, the Equisarren Centurion's only flaw was that it could not be reproduced without more genetic material from the First Children. 

However, rumors of a strange and horrific abomination also born from the recklessness of the First Children began to spread amongst the Travelers, and its location ...Glyosar. 

Creepers of the Broken Blade

Sen brings the darkness within Broken Blade Mountain into wicked focus with another masterful pin up! 

Thank you for sharing your mega talents with us again, Sen! 


Leave No Wrong Undone

We are once again on the lucky side of things being able to create another brand new comic with Dillon Wheelock! This one is extra special, as it reveals more of the Glyosar world than we've ever explored in the open, far beyond the piles of drawings and long gestating mini games that have mostly existed only internally for years. We hope you have some fun adventuring with the Glyknight! Part two will be coming soon!

Thank you for such a knockout, Dillon! You're a true left-handed ace!

Mighty Maniax: Dark Earth




The powerhouse that is Rocom Toys has been running another great Kickstarter called Mighty Maniax: Dark Earth, over the last month and it comes to a close late tonight! Everything from hulking barbarians, bio-plated snakemen, spaced invaders, cycloptic armored despots, horned overlords and possessed skeletons await you! Rocom worked like a madman to cover all the details for his new Dark Earth project, with an impressive new catalog of Glyos compatible characters and parts to explore as the result! Who knows, maybe Dethro was even trained in the same Pit of Despair as Slaeyr from the new Dreadvalken Bit Figs line ...

Head over to the Mighty Maniax: Dark Earth campaign and join in on the expansion of another fully independent action figure line.

From Rocom:

Mighty Maniax: Dark Earth from Rocom Toys Launching on Kickstarter

Rocom Toys is adding Barbarian and Fantasy characters to their expansive line of Glyos compatible action figures starting April 16th on Kickstarter. Inspired by Conan, Golden Axe, D&D, and Jurassic Park, the new campaign ushers in Axe Wielding Gladiators, Mystical Mages, and Fearsome Beasts. The project features some Exclusive items ranging from enamel pins designed by Tom Whalen and Toy Galaxy's Dan Larson, to a set of Artist Edition Trading Cards with some of the industry's top illustrators including Jonathan Way$hak, Brad Walker, Jeffrey Brown, Greg Hinkle, Justin Greenwood, Toy Shiz, and more.

Thank You!!!

Thanks for making the return of Bit Figs a glorious one! The first batch of orders will hit the post tomorrow and continue into Thursday & Friday. I'll be sharing more about the new series over at BitFigs.com, but I wanted to thank 3 key people who helped bring these mini monstrosities to life:
PJ of Spaced Out Design who was instrumental in the early prototyping, printing dozens of versions while we worked up and refined the sculpts for over a year. Series 2 is well underway thanks to his efforts!
George of Double G Toys for creating the final masters at Four Horsemen Studios that were used for the steel mold, and who has been an unwavering supporter since the beginning, not to mention helping bring the original Skeleden into existence. 
And of course to my brother-in-arms Matt, who was involved every step of the way, co-developing these characters, co-managing the project, and pushed me to take this series to the Edge of Space and back.
Thank YOU for the continued support and helping make this rollout a success. Special collabs and more on the horizon!
-Marc

Thank You!!!

An extra monstrous thanks for being part of the special debut release of Mike MZs Zulloid! Right out of the gates, I know there has been some warranted frustration with the brevity of availability on this new assortment, and for that I do personally apologize. 

That being said, this entire round was the last order Mike MZ placed before he passed on, so the numbers were not at the level that we would normally run for our own stuff. We worked closely with the family of Mike MZ to make sure they were all totally on board with us releasing this wave just as Mike had asked me to do in our last conversation. To say that this entire experience has been intensely emotional doesn't really come close to covering it.  

Wave 101 is lined up to roll out near the end of this month and it does include a brand new Zulloid in the mix, run at higher numbers. You'll also see another edition of the Zulloid pop up in a different location even sooner than that. Our aim right along the way has been to do a successive series of Zulloid editions to celebrate the last project we all did with Mike MZ. Keep your eyes peeled over where "the gods are beasts" sometime next week if you're hunting for the next style of the Zulloid. 

Mike would have been extremely happy by the turnout for his new creature from space. There's a good story to tell regarding the development and history of the Zulloid, and I look forward to sharing it with you once all the dust settles a bit. 

Deep gratitude goes out to the whole Moszczynski Family for allowing us to share in continuing the legacy of Mike with all his friends and fans. 

We finally got it out there, Mike!

Zulloid Mini Wave is LIVE!

Zulloid Mini Wave is live!


Note: Please place only ONE ORDER WITHIN THE FIRST HOUR TONIGHT. We will lift all limits after the first hour. Thanks for your cooperation. Have Fun!

Also, due to the state of things with Covid-19, we will only be shipping domestically (and to Canada) for this wave. We sincerely apologize to our international customers for the situation.

Zulloid Sluggoloth Plasmulon



Zulloid Cortexiax Viocell


Zullen: A Reintroduction -The Sleekryll

The Zullen Sleekryll are the enforcers of the Zullen collective, genetically enhanced through the cross-hybridization of only the strongest of alien races (particularly through the genetic sampling of an injured and subsequently captured Delphi from the Glyos System). Due to their aggressive multi-species bio-breeding, they are capable of manifesting extraordinary physical abilities, but have a lower intelligence quotient as a result of their diluted natural ancestry. 

Additionally, the newly created organism called the Zulloid has shown a particular affinity for bio-bonding with the Sleekryll. 


Zullen: A Reintroduction - The Clyrathan

The Zullen Clyrathan are a psychically hyper powered race with unique clairvoyant abilities. They are tasked with reading the "Directional Fate" of civilizations that are selected for experimentation by the Zullen collective, taking any necessary action to guarantee that their clandestine operations are not compromised. These usually nefarious plans are commonly imposed through psychic espionage, mind manipulation and remote telekinetic activities. 

In many ways, the Zullen Clyrathan serve as the "Psychic Navigators" of the Zullen collective, charting the courses of entire planetary generations just so the Zullen can feed off the resulting advancement or destruction of each targeted society.


Zullen: A Reintroduction -The Xarrgrey

The Zullen are a collective of alien races that have become obsessed over time with discovering, manipulating, claiming and then perfecting advanced foreign technology. Throughout millennia the Zullen surveyed countless worlds, establishing clandestine outposts to monitor the evolutionary progress of potentially useful species, then strategically meddling with their natural order to create more desirable results from these "experiments".  Many civilizations owe their true destruction to the Zullen, with their greatest resources and advanced science eventually being stolen by the Zullen's Imperial Regent.

Overseeing the Zullen are the Xarrgrey, gene splicing experts that re-engineer and integrate "returned" technology into the Zullen "Cortex Immortal" to foster new innovations for their collective to build upon. They were the first race that established the Zullen and continue to operate in a leadership capacity. 

Almost all of the genetic experiments within the Zullen collective are carried out by the Zullen Xarrgrey, with two of the most notable being the abomination known as the Zullbeast and the hybrid super organism called the Zulloid, both of which represent physical manifestations of all the atrocities committed by the Zullen against the known universe. These horrific creatures are often used to "purify" undesired results stemming from failed Zullen world manipulations.


Zulloid Multrasor Standard


The Zulloid


Furthering their bold pursuit of engineering the most deadly organism in the known systems, the Zullen turned their attention to crossbreeding elements of the captured lifeform known as Kaisyriax with their own already diverse DNA. While the initial results of Project Zulloid were considered uncontrollable abominations like the Zullbeast, success was finally achieved with the discovery and integration of additional genetic material recovered from an ancient derelict craft known as the Atarikoth Comet. 

Now, rising from their Mutagenic Multra Tanks and radioactively supercharged, the Zulloid begin their campaign to become the ultimate apex predator of all creation.  


Legacies and Lifeforms

Tonight, April 28th, we have a special surprise mini wave ready to roll out in celebration of the late Mike MZ's final figure project, the Zulloid, which has been in development since early 2019. 

We have been working directly with his family since his passing, and with their blessing, we are honored to usher this legacy project into the fold, just as Mike asked us to do. 

This new assortment will land in the store at the usual 9:30PM EDT!

Thank You!!!

A belated but gargantuan thank you for landing us on the other side of 100 waves! It was a particularly challenging round that enjoyed throwing a couple curveballs our way, so we really appreciate all the patience while we navigated through "The Delay Zone".
Our main goal for Wave 100 was to share a healthy combination of new parts, new art and new story elements, coordinated to hopefully deliver a compact capsule of fun. Of course, getting all the pieces to complete the puzzle always takes more time than you ever plan for, but that's fairly minor if the end result still makes you genuinely smile.
I wanted to once again give deep thanks to Dillon and Sen for the artwork that they created for Wave 100. There are many unseen layers of effort that are involved with any artistic endeavor, and I was extremely lucky to watch both artists develop their projects into some truly extraordinary final forms. Dillon and Sen, I couldn't be happier with what you each pulled straight from the Edge of Space!
All orders from the night of the sale to the posting of these words have been packed and sent out. Thanks to all of you, Michelle and I happily faced a larger than usual stack of orders, which in these strange times is something we are very grateful for. The only downside was that it took us a little longer to process, pack and tape. Michelle was also busting my chops because the specific names of the characters in this round were making her brain implode while she hammered through the processing. Some couples bicker about what's for dinner, others knock heads about the names of made-up aliens sounding too similar in a database, and then some do both.
The Mega Man 2 soundtrack pretty much kept me alive during the papering/taping time in the barn, along with a combination of certain songs from Twice and the Cocteau Twins. I think Mega Man 2 might have the best music from the whole series.
Our next wave is looking to emerge sometime in late April or early May. Also, make sure to check out the latest from Cappy Space (new stuff currently available) and Spaced Out Design (featuring a crossover connection to Wave 100 due tomorrow night).
Super special thanks to CC for the awesome image shown above! We spent an entire week together venturing out onto the frozen reservoir located way out behind our house, each day after school, shooting all the photos for Wave 100. It was a perfect passage of time that I'll be replaying in my mind forever.
Each time I draft a message to you guys after a new launch, I swear to myself that I'll keep it pretty brief as not to torture, but the text pile still manages to scale up! So, with that being said, please just know how much our family appreciates the continuous support that you have all generously shared for coming up on 17 years. Words don't really cut it for how we feel, but they'll have to do! So, with true feeling, thank you!

So Falls a Traveler


The Kydrothi Cometh

In all the years of working with so many talented artists, sculptors and musicians, I've always had a very special fondness for the extraordinary work of the artist known as Sen. Once again, Sen has provided a series of astonishing illustrations, this time to celebrate and expand upon the story featured in the Those From Beyond the Edge comic. 

Sen, somehow you innately comprehend the true aesthetic of what Glyos is inside my brain. Thank you for each and every piece of art that you've created throughout the years. What a wicked talent you possess!

Kydrothi Hyper Phase

 


Waellex Edgebreaker Unleashed Reverse

When the Kydrothi and Waellex break through the Edge of Space they do so packed tightly within their biomolecular tachyon charged protective "Intruder Suits", which are analogous to what a Sarvos Type Traveler utilizes to a lesser effect. 

The reasons for the armor are multifold, but the primary purpose is to keep some form of control over the Kydrothi and Waellex, as each suit is outfitted with a "kill switch" that is designed to terminate or paralyze the user if direct orders are not followed. The trade off is access to enhanced power, speed and near invulnerability, but at the cost of the user's complete freedom. This is exactly what the Sarvos Type Travelers must contend with, though some have learned how to beat the kill switch, thanks again to the intervention of the Delphi.


Kydrothi Edgebreaker Unleashed

The Intruders are in actuality the equivalent of what a Traveler is and represents, but they herald from two "older" and completely different "Systems" that exist Beyond the Edge of Space. They have been summoned from their mother systems by the Elder Masters to come to the Glyos System and regain control. 
The Elder Masters are near omnipotent in their scope and their vision, but cannot physically gain entry into the worlds that they create themselves. Therefore, their bidding is carried out by the "First Children", which began with the Kydrothi, the Waellex and the youngest of the trio, the Delphi. Each race was sent to a newborn system, charged with guiding and manipulating the lifeforms of each separate system according to the plans of the Elder Masters. 
Only the Delphi dared to eventually rise against the harsh reign of the Elder Masters, rebelling when their own "children", the Armorvor, were ordered destroyed by the Elder Masters. Through the intermittent and unexplained appearance of the dimension bending Zorennor Rift, the Delphi found a way to hide their Armorvor from the vision of the Elder Masters, who somehow could not see into the Rift itself. 
To replace the Delphi after their rebellion, the Elder Masters created the Traveler, a less powerful but more controllable race of beings than the three races of the First Children. Even though the Traveler race was intentionally designed to obey more easily than their predecessors, they began to also awaken to the cruelty of the Elder Masters, thanks to the intervention of the Delphi, who had become more powerful while within the Zorennor Rift, gaining a new mastery of time space through the use of forgotten Dimension Gate technology. 

Those From Beyond the Edge

We are "beyond the edge of excitement" to present a brand new comic, illustrated by the multidisciplined lefty art master known as Dillon Wheelock! Dillon took on this assignment knowing full well that there were some very large shoes to fill, and proceeded to craft an amazing showcase of sequential art that I'm certain Ralph would have really enjoyed reading. We hope all of you smile seeing the new and old characters warping around the page again.

Dillon, thank you from the deepest part of my heart for reaching out and teaming up with us. I honestly never thought we'd delve into this end of the creative field again, but you showed me that there is still more story to tell. Your generosity, creativity and patience truly pushed this into reality.  

We dedicate this comic, and all comics to come, to Ralph. You opened the door that we are all still using to tell stories together, and we will honor that forever.
