Thank You!!!

Thank you for an excellent final release of 2016! We'd been working away on the new store interface for months and seeing everything finally come together without any major implosions felt like an alternate reality. No inventory crashes, no wonked out loading times, no mysterious double charges and no store closures in the middle of the release! Marcus and Shopify, we salute you! All of us over here deeply appreciate the solid feedback that was sent throughout the launch, your reports really helped us stay on top of things. We've been invoicing and packing all weekend and the first packages will be hitting the post throughout today and tomorrow.

2016 was a year full of change, on many different levels, but manufacturing these little guys continues to be done with true passion and the same attention to detail as when we started, after almost a decade in the toy trenches. A lot of concentration was focused on pushing the paint and individual figure design this year, as opposed to larger builder waves from 2015 and before. It's been exciting to explore not only our "Standard' style color combinations, but also some dedicated homage waves -particularly over the last few months (TMNG, Capture Run). 2017 will see even more full production experiments and crossovers, as well as some further expansion to our nebulous narrative (I'm looking at you Quallerran).

Marcus, Michelle and I have been discussing and reminiscing about the lifespan of Glyos more than usual these days, due to the 10 year mark steadily approaching. We've seen a lot of twists and turns, but there is still a fire burning in the furnace and some interesting new things in store for 2017.

Thank you for sticking with us and continuing to inspire our creativity, through all 60 waves!


  1. Matt - thank YOU and your team for help keeping the Outer Space Men brand alive & kicking! Can't wait to capture that Algol Fugitive! Happy Holidays!

  2. Three cheers for such a great wave and for what awesomeness lies ahead. You are all doing an amazing job!

  3. I'm a little more than obsessed with your Quallerrans XD

    Such an amazing run, man. Looks like I came into this at the right time!

  4. Matt, Marc, Michelle and any other M's I'm missing along the way... I've been here since the beginning and I'm not leaving anytime soon. I miss you guys to pieces. I hope you make it back to the city at some point. I love the new paint apps you guys have been doing, and I hope I can be on point for more release nights, I've missed far too many good things

  5. Much like JediCreeper, I have been here since at least 2008 when a friend with a credit card (cause there was no Money Order option in the store) bought Solaris Exellis, Rothan Pheyden & a Crayboth 2-pack on my behalf and then was able to purchase them myself for the first Buildman release in Feb of 2009. Loved everything you guys have made over the last near decade and Glyos easily has taken on a nostalgic vibe as I came into my own as a sculptor while the line grew. Even if schedules don't line up and we do not get to see each other, I will always remember how your toys helped inspire me to be who I am today.

    But like JediCreeper said, there has been a void of Glyos on the East Coast in the last 2 years. I believe a "Glyo-Con" would be something good to see, even if it is a small thing inside a hotel.

    1. That "Glyo-Con" idea is brilliant...maybe for a 10 year celebration?

  6. You guys do such amazing toys that have so much heart and soul to them, and it's SO SO refreshing to see such kind, loving people have continued success doing what they love. I can't stress that enough. God bless you guys for your hard work, and how you treat everyone.
