Thank You!!!

A belated but big thank you for one of the strongest turnouts of the year! We've been in overdrive mode since the launch and feel deeply grateful to you guys for making the new wave something extra special. Lots of new folks were mixed in with our steady base, thanks once again to the mighty Crafsman! As mentioned in the previous post, we've adjusted the next order to try and accommodate the shift of having a significant amount of fresh faces joining the party. The current target for the last wave of 2019 is early December.

Working on this last round was mega satisfying because of the different artists involved in the process.

I've known Glen "Circuits and Brains" Schricker, better known as Schrick, since I was a kid, so any chance to collaborate together always has an added depth that comes from our old hometown connection. He's been a phenomenal talent since day one and completely nailed the sound of Halkenn's descent into darkness perfectly.

Supplying a frenetically paced parallel to Schrick's foreboding flourish was the super prolific John Beaudette, the twin brother and life-bandmate of our very own Marcus! As one half of the dual-powered Arcade Rats, John created a driving chiptune that captured the genesis of the Parasitic Halkennite in all its twisted glory.

Last but not least, the German Genius of Drawing (and painting, and coloring, and designing), Ralph Niese, delivered a critical sequence of awe-inspiring art that brought everything into wicked focus. We love seeing what Ralph creates for each wave, and paired with the audio escapades of Schrick and John the visual experience transformed into a beast even more powerful than the Halkennite itself!

Massive thanks to these three powerhouses!

Michelle and I took on the shipping alone this time, and the steady flow really kept us on our toes. This was the highest amount of orders processed and packed this year, even rivaling the craziness of 2013. As a result, it took us a little bit longer to carefully move everything out the door. We had The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers on a Fire Stick loop for the overnights and then rolled into SZA to hold things together as we closed in on the finish line. Also caught the Mandalorian and loved it. Jawa disintegrations! The Egg!

Wrapping up, we'll be heading back out to DCon later this week (Booth 3028) and we're super psyched to connect with everybody and talk shop! If all goes according to plan (blood sacrifices to US Customs withholding), we might even have a few advanced offerings from our early December wave available to check out. We love DCon and are honored to be able to attend for another year!

On a very special bonus note, keep your eyes on the store near the end of the week/weekend as we'll be popping up the third offering from our collaboration with 1000toys, the Nu:Synth Glyninja Dark! We've been waiting for this one since last year, and will have a limited supply available and ready to rumble. This one comes with a awesome cape and Glyos compatible Robo Force inspired gunblades and walks the line between Glyninja and Glyknight in design, but at the 1:12 scale. It's a good one!

Extra big thanks to everybody, both new recruits and old soldiers, for inspiring us to continue pushing the limits of this well worn Sandcrawler! Utinni!


  1. I'm not sure what the USPS did with my package but I'm still waiting :( I guess Halkenn had to travel a different route!
    What an awesome drop! Keep up the great work!

  2. Really enjoyed the offerings this time around, especially that raw chicken flesh....Thing...and his Armorvor buddy. I’ll have to break out some flesh guys to see how they work together. It plays well with Solaris at any rate.

    Would love to see this color again across any and every mold. Halkennite must find its way into the greater cosmos.

  3. Easily one of my favorite waves of yours in a while, and the timing lucked out that I hsd money to go a little nuts. These guys have been doing battle with one another on a table in my apartment since I got them, along with a few extra helpers for Halken. Keep up the great work guys and can't wait to see what Dec's drop will be!

  4. Thank you, Matt, for giving me an opportunity to create sonic landscapes for the glorious world of Glyos!
