Thank You!!!

Thank you for a great start to the school year! An extra level of internal excitement over this new round had been simmering ever since we turned the original mechanicals in, so when everything finally landed in the barn I spent a ton of time just building and testing things out.  In many ways a successor to the TFV wave from earlier this year, the STS colors seem to capture that Real Type vibe right on the nose, via some direct channeling of the awesome Solo flick (Mimban mania!).
The STS selections were fairly stacked, so we ordered on the higher side in the hope that we'd have things available for a little longer than usual, particularly because of the gray color choice. The RF Trio being run in a neutral hue like gray should be more accessible than usual for those that would like to explore the parts, without the worry of an imminent sellout. It's a little tougher to stock the higher priced items from a manufacturing standpoint, but thanks to John's generosity in letting us run such a great neutral color, we wanted to make sure we didn't come up short. 
This wave also signifies the closing of the current FP homage Mystery Figure assortment. That being said, we may revisit some of the non-space style FP figures down the road. The new MF sub-series will begin in the upcoming mid-October wave and is currently slated for a 5-6 figure set, to be offered over the next 5-6 waves. Some of you may dig the new (old) theme, which is right in line with the FP time period.
The creative powerhouse that is Ralph Niese has once again supplied some wicked new art (the beginning of which is shown above) to accompany and expand the STS arc, and we'll be showcasing more of his efforts throughout the rest of the week. We've been waiting for this STS wave to focus on the Rift Killer's interactions with the rest of the Glyos denizens and Ralph's renditions of this event are simply outstanding. More material for that ever growing mega book! Thank you Ralph!
All orders placed up until this posting have been packed and shipped, including all international orders. As always, Michelle and Pj expedited the process and even CC got into the mix this time!
We listened to a bunch of Louis Cole (Time), Knower and also had the old Robot Carnival and Fist of the North Star animations playing while we packed in the barn. Those with a Firestick should check out the latest block of animation on Prime. I've had Robot Carnival on loop for days!
Extra huge thanks for traveling with us to Wave 75! I feel like we've been in the bonus round for longer than is usually allowed, and that's only due to the support and interest that you continue to share.

KBB Kaikeshi on Kickstarter!

We consider Rand Borden, the creator of Kaiju Big Battel, extended family over here. My sister Megan (AKA the ravenous dimwit space bug known as Sky Deviler) introduced me to Rand over 15 years ago, in an early effort to put together a "Kaikeshi" series of minifigures in the spirit of the legendary Kinnikuman/ M.U.S.C.L.E. toys.

Upon our first meeting, we spent the entire day sketching and analyzing the incredible array of characters Rand had summoned forth from his monster filled brain. It was a great visit and I was honored to be allowed to contribute to the KBB madness in even a small way.

After about a week, I'd completed the basic control art shown above, based on Rand's initial selections for the proposed first lineup. Though we both really wanted to get the Kaikeshi project into full production, it never came into focus due to about a million things.

That is until now!

If you get a chance, click over to Rand's new Kaikeshi Kickstarter and witness the resurrection of a nearly forgotten project! The character lineup is much larger than before, and a certain Traveler even managed to phase into the mix as well!

The whole Onell family wishes Rand the very best!

Thank You!!!

Huge thanks go out to all of you for a super release! The different elements that came together for this 11th anniversary wave truly represented a little bit of our past, present and future. It's always fun to see old friends again, and opening new boxes of Hades, Argen and Pheyden in their familiar colors definitely made us smile around here when they arrived. Then welcoming the new Zetonian/Mechabon mold into the family really sealed the deal for this round to be something extra special.

Over the last few weeks, between the Toyfinity debut of the Zetonian form and our follow up reveal of the Mechabon form, we've been internally celebrating the completion of a project that Toyfinity's John Kent and I started over a year ago (with some of it actually dating back all the way to the first new Maxx Zero concepts). As always, working with John and the Toyfinity team was great, and we were able to create another new character together, through the study and reimagining of the classic robots we grew up loving. There's a lot of hidden stuff within this beefy little 'bot, but we know that the coolest discoveries will come from what each of you finds within the parts.

Looking towards the next couple months, our next wave is set for early September, and will feature the return of the Mechabon, and maybe even a Miniborg for good measure. Also, keep your eyes peeled for a new Toyfinity assortment in August that spotlights the Zetonian and delves deeper into its origin story.

As of this writing, all orders have been shipped out, so be on the lookout for those packages! Yet again, Michelle and Pj kept the boat afloat and moved with precision and speed through a pretty big stack of orders. Those new Mechabons are heavy little buggers! Barn tunes included another round of TBS with a follow up mix of new MGMT and much to Michelle's chagrin, Winger. I waited until Pj went home to turn that selection on.

The last 11 years have been the best. Thank you so much for the opportunity to squeak out a few more. New projects are rounding the corner, and as long as we can, we'll keep at it.

In closing, I also want to personally express my deep gratitude to Ron Daley, who has been building figures with me since the beginning. We worked side by side throughout the entire process of prototyping the new Zetonian/Mechabon, and hopefully the end result brings you as much happiness as we had while making it.

Thanks Ronny!
