Thank You!!!

Big thanks for a great start to March! Over the last few weeks nature has been playing a special kind of New England weather roulette, with tree snapping wind storms, concrete snowfalls and erratic temperatures flipping like a cricket. During these elemental sweeps, the samples from this new wave took turns braving the outdoors with me, testing their builds against long days filled with chainsaws, shovels and snowplows. It's been awesome seeing the figures arriving in your mailboxes and getting upgraded forms to tackle some all new adventures out there. Production runs for this wave seem to have lined up well, with most of the stock likely starting to tap out late this coming week based on the current flow.

When we roll out one of these thematic tribute waves, the exercise represents much more than simply color matching a beloved source material, it also connects emotionally back to the specific time period that the inspiration was drawn from.

I was 12 years old when I first watched Robotech back in 1985. Being a latchkey kid, cartoon time in front of the tube was not only comforting, but also inspiring. Many hours were spent drawing Valkyries battling Zentraedi Battle Pods in blown out cityscapes (actual evidence shown below), all the while carefully studying the animated action that burst forth from our old television set. Thinking about those times, I suppose it was like attending some kind of daily bizzaro life drawing lesson, only with mecha as the focal point. What a college course that would have been.

As of this writing, all orders have gone out, including all foreign packages. We're still adjusting our numbers to best line up with the new postal rates, so we may make a few minor shifts in that department (for the better) as we review this last round of shipping. Michelle, as always, was steady and on point throughout the usual processing, packing and shipping duties. Barn tunes favored the great Benny Sings (City Pop), the Interstellar soundtrack again and the new Ladytron (track 2 is especially good).

Our next wave will be landing in late April, and features a couple very special aspects that we'll start to dig into sooner than later.

We hope you guys are staying creative during these winter months.

Thanks again from the whole family!


  1. I am hell of interested in not being afraid of recombobulating my purchases into a a new construction. Beside the Glyos Connect Forums, would you be interested in making a, 'cool d.i.y. suggestion,' web-page resource? All I can think of is adding on extra arms, or moving the head around, having Walruden ride a hunchback-horse Bio Warrior... I would like to read and learn more about how to re-assemble the multiple axis and action figures into even more imaginative creations.
    Any interest in a web-page resource, such as this?

    1. I should feel so comfortable recombobulating these axis' and action figures, it should be like scribbling all over a sketchbook, instead of being concerned about making only final products.
      That's what I think, anyway...

    2. That lavender was awesome!! I’d love to see that come back in earnest and take over a large chunk of a future wave.

      As for the comment above, check out “contained build” and “unlimited build” here and on the glyos wiki. Lots of good stuff.

    3. very helpful suggestion. Thank you!

      I browsed through some of the, "Contained Build," pages. Cool stuff.
      I am interested in a, "web-page resource," teaching others how to complete builds. I am thinking of photo-by-photo construction instruction. Taking apart axis' and discussing what this may be-come, just to inspire further creativity with the community.

      It is cool to see these pages on the wiki. I would like to see more open-ended construction, like, inspiration and suggestion, and also instruction, and also maybe wave-by-wave recommendations.

  2. I'm loving these new colors, and having a ton of fun coming up with some new creations. Thanks to your pre-drop hints I discovered Robotech was streaming online and have now become fully immersed in the deep politics of Macross city, protoculture and of course Minmay's incessant singing... I'm loving the new colors, a bit more than I realized I would, which may be indicative of my third order.

    Loving the new tampos on those Glayn heads, put two together and who knows what you might get. https://www.instagram.com/p/BvEvTUenWac/

  3. Very curious about these special aspects. You mentioned something with a new mold in the works for the next drop, I'm hoping that's still on track.
