Enter the Acolyte

Our extended family over at Toyfinity has some new Manglors action currently available to terrorize your collections! 

Accompanying the return of the Standard Manglord and the special Protolord from the previous Toyfinity preorder is the Manglord Dactylian Acolyte. Shot in a deep and vivid purple and accented with a very interesting, almost color shifting paint (watch the color pop simply by passing from shadow into light), the Dactylian Acolyte comes forth to test the Manglord on behalf of his master and terror from the skies, the Manglodactyl itself! 

Don't forget to also capture the latest tribes of Mordles while exploring the catacombs of the Toyfinity shop!

We're working closely with John Kent and Erwin Papa to help expand the world of Toyfinity's Manglors and think the next chapter might really rattle your bones!


SeNsational Stickers!

Years ago, I was lucky enough to meet the extraordinary artist known as Sen during a convention out west. After talking for a spell, Sen presented a short comic/manga featuring some Glyos characters that really knocked my socks off. From that moment on, I hoped that one day the rest of the world would get to see not only that short comic, but possibly a lot more of Sen's take on the oddballs that populate Glyos on the whole. 

Since last year that hope has turned into reality, with Sen producing a number of wicked illustrations that have accompanied our releases. But at the same time, in the background, they'd been working on another really killer project that's finally ready to rollout!

Head over to Sen's Hellomugicha Etsy Shop to discover not only their excellent (and official) SD holo sticker versions of many familiar Glyos characters (presented in the classic Bikkuriman style), but also a large variety of other amazing stickers showcasing Sen's awesome range of talent! 

We've truly loved working with Sen over the last year and look forward to the extraordinary artwork they have on the horizon! 

Thanks Sen!

Thank you, Cady!


Thank You!!!

Huge thanks for supporting the return of the EMD in all its intense orange madness! You've all kept Michelle and I very busy over the last couple of weeks, and we are supremely grateful for that!

Revisiting familiar color combinations is something we enjoy doing around here, but certain older waves specifically represent the times when this project ventured into uncharted territory, such as the original EMD assortment. 

Not only did Wave 19 mark the beginning of what would be a loaded 2012, but it also ushered in the advent of the vinyl "Core Block". The memory of cracking open the first cases of the Blocks and realizing that I could legitimately build actual towers and sprawling structures is still very clear. We even tried playing a bizarro game of reverse Jenga when the first shipment arrived, seeing just how high we could stack the Block structures (multiple citadels right to the ceiling). It was a unique and different way to explore building and I'm happy we had the chance to do it. Our latest iteration of the EMD pays tribute to those days with the featured crossover builds.

Michelle and I tackled the processing and shipping as quickly as we could, though the rate of orders was a little steadier than usual, hence the lateness of this post. We finally managed to catch up over the weekend and are now in the pocket as far as pacing goes. I spent most of the barn time listening to classic tunes from the 70s (ELO, Stevie Wonder and Billy Joel -yes, I am old), episodes of Galaxy Rangers and some episodes of the 2004 Astro Boy (some of the best animation of its time). One particular 12-hour packing and taping stint was supercharged by these glorious pieces of entertainment. As of this writing, everything has hit the post.

Looking ahead, we are shooting for a late June/early July Wave 98, which will also serve as our 16th anniversary assortment. Hopefully you'll enjoy what we have on deck for it.  

To say we are thankful for the dedication that each of you continues to bring to the equation doesn't remotely cover how we feel. It's a state of perpetual gratitude that will last long after this all ends. 

As always, we'll give it everything we've got to try and keep the project as interesting, unexpected and most of all fun, as possible.

Special thanks to SeN for the wicked illustration shown above! We love it!
