Gendrone Shock Force Review

The four Shock Force figures were sold individually about a month ago along with a Phase Arm set and Axis Joints. There’s a pic of the Phase Arms in inset in the first photo, but I overlooked the Axis Joints so they’re not shown here. Oh, and there’s a Govurom head cast in the metallic purple as well – that wasn’t available to order, but was packed away in the box I received from Onell. They’re cool like that over there. Everything in this colorway is currently sold out. If you’re looking for any of these guys for your collections, your best bet is to buy/trade for them on the October Toys forum.

Whether you’re out there collecting these figures or buying them for pieces in your own builds, chances are that you’ve already got a few of these particular sculpts in your collections. The main attraction here is the metallic purple colorway and it looks pretty sharp, particularly if you’ve got a nice metallic collection going. I’m still waiting for silver to make its comeback (a silver Glyan is high on my list), but until then I’m enjoying the metallic rainbow Onell has going. There’s a drop scheduled for the end of this month, hopefully we’ll get a shot at a new metallic color soon.

Gendrone Shock Force Review

  • Great job Noisy!! Love those gobon bastards

  • Okay, Noisy… slightly off-topic, but I have to ask about the term “7th Market”. I’d never heard of it before you started using it in your reviews, can you expand on that for someone completely clueless on what it means?

  • They used to call the stores beyond K-Mart, Walmart, TRU, etc the “Sixth Market” in some Hasbro literature – meaning online stores, drug stores, and other similar places. I’d guess that is where Noisy derived it from.

    • dayraven

      right on doc! in noisy’s own words from the 7th Market board:

      ” “Seventh Market” is a play on an old toy industry term, “Market Six”. Basically, any store you could sell toys to other than the five toy retailers was labelled as “market six”. The “Big Five” has diminished plenty since those days and that term is no longer really applied, but it still makes the internet a seventh market.”

      • Thanks for the ed-u-ma-cation, guys!

        • Thanks, guys!

          It’s origin just came about because we wanted a way to characterize our coverage of these “little companies that can”. We bandied around “independent” or “designer” or “alternative”, but none of those really seem to fit. Designer is snooty, and indepenent/alternative gives too much credit to Hasbro & Mattel. Years ago, the word independent also amounted to “avoid” to me(though it’s a huge signal of greatness to other) and I wanted to reach folks that thought like I used to.

          So, short of thinking of something clever, we went with 7th Market since these guys live and die online.

    • Kent showing up with an answer..like a BOSS

  • Bigbot

    I always thought it was an homage to the 4H’s 7th Kingdom line that kind of started the whole independent toys surge we’re living in.

    I was able to get the Gendrone and Glyan on that drop, but missed out on the Gobon and extra pieces. It really sucks as I’ve had to use the black Axis joints to power up my figures (though it’s all good). I can’t wait for this next drop.

    • I hadn’t thought of that, but that’s a fantastic takeaway.

      I had forgotten if there were purple axis joints originally. I had to look it up and make sure they existed.

  • Excellent review dude! Due to so much different stuff coming out at once during that drop, I only snagged 1 Phaseon Gendrone & 2 metallic purple Axis Joint sets. As I had no other Shockforce guys I just beefed up the guy I had so he’s now jacked with a 100% contained build of all 3 sets. Matt really needs to re-release alot of these colors into the Buildstation at some point, I always run out of colors when I get crazy with building different things.

    Hey fellow Onell Design fans,

    I’ve been given a small assortment of various Pheyden’s and other Onell Design Gobons, etc.

    My brother-in-law, who gave me a bunch of them for Christmas last year, recently was likely forced by his wife to get rid of a huge section of his massive Onell Design stash.

    I’m definitely keeping some of the stuff, but it’s a pretty massive collection, more than my wife or young kids can really handle.

    Can anyone give me some advice on what I should do with them?

    Thought I’d ask the experts here before I put them up on ebay one at a time or in a huge lot (or in several smaller lots).
