Glyos System Week: Venjorun
Armorvor Review (24 Pics!)

In all, the Armorvor includes 18 pieces. The two heads, the backpack, and then the torso splits at the waist while the limbs all breakdown into three segments. That also means the figure has 14 swivel joints to achieve a wide variety of poses, particularly because a lot of the swivels are cut at an angle which really opens up what the figure can do.

The Venjorun Armorvor is entirely cast in red, so there’s more paint here than we normally see with Glyos. There’s a few spot areas on mine where I wish it were sharper, but at this scale, I’m very happy with it. I should also note that there’s a paint variation in the eyes. I have the standard blue-eyed release, but some folks have ended up with red eyes on theirs. Jealous!

Overall, the Armorvor is a great addition to the Glyos ranks. I do admit that, unlike a lot of my Glyos, I feel a little more temptation to leave the figure is his original configuration, at least below the neck. That could easily change once I see what other fans are coming up with, but I can’t help it – the design and subsequent sculpt just really want me to enjoy Venjorun as is. If nothing else, I will be looking forward to a few more colorways (like the black Armorvor coming later this week) so that I might spice up the suits. Maybe I’ll figure out a cool uniform scheme.

Anyway, like any good Glyos figure – I never feel like I can explain why it’s cool or awesome in words. That’s why I have to give you more pics. In the case of the Armorvor, he earned a full two dozen! Have at ’em…

Armorvor Review (24 Pics!)

  • […] All True has launched Glyos System Week with a new review of the Venjorun Armorvor. Awesome timing, since Onell Design is dropping the new Armorvor toys in a few days, and seeing […]

  • I love this flippin’ figure, I was just refreshing the store when I saw it pop up at the top of the page. I immediately ordered 3 & then went back to order the rest of the things I wanted from the drop. I love the colors and the figure is just a rock-solid little chunky piece of plastic. My wife claimed one of them so her GodBeast Lion Armovor head could have a body, but the other 2 are mine to play with. My digital camera of 7 years recently died on me, so I still need to take photos of the builds I made with mine. Their red color matches the Red/Maroon Glyans from last October and I think the Red/Clear Smoke Armory sets from Spy Monkey Creations. I actually gave one of mine a big hammer with the Armory parts & it looks pretty awesome. O_O Excellent review as usual dude. 😀

    I’ve been convinced that I should pick up some of these in the next drop since reading the many articles around the net this past month, but I really like those white heads, and red armor.

    From a collectible aspect, and a “we don’t know how many the factory can handle” aspect, a limited initial run makes sense, but from a story perspective, I can’t go back and buy the he-man or batman of the Armorvor world! That sucks.

    Is there even a secondary market for Glyos, if we missed the boat on the first run of these guys?

    • Bigbot

      The best way to track down earlier figures is through the Onell Design forum at October Toys. You can also keep checking eBay for “Glyos” and see what periodically comes up. I remember BigBadToyStore had a couple in stock someone sold to them, but I’ve never seen them sold anywhere else.

    • I have no insider info, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t see the red colorway return on the Armorvor at some point. Matt’s usually pretty good about that.

  • Nice! I’m hoping ot get a few of these guys come wed myself, I missed out on this one, thankfully my friends are hardcore glyos guys and I used one of theirs for my review

  • dayraven

    so the little guy is off to a 2-0 record this early in his career… how auspicious!

  • rikdom

    Man, I wish I’d have known about this guy when he went on sale.
    Of course, I guess nobody really knew he was going up. But I was at a bigger disadvantage since I don’t really follow Glyos. But this guy… he’s totally a Battle Beast and he’s totally awesome. I might try to get the black and green one coming out this week, but as cool as that guy looks, it’s a bit like settling for a Player 2 Ryu when you want the real white-gied deal.

    Maybe that’s not exactly the same situation, as I don’t know anything about this guy’s story, but at least he has the advantage of being a real wolf color. Maybe they will release a black, brown or grey head with a colorful armor in the future. But that red and white is sharp.

    • Yeah, I was just there hoping to snag the Deep Space Glyan and then there was this guy staring me in the face.

      Have you had time to check the tie-in media for the Armorvor intro? There is actually some back story stuff on his race, if not him specifically.

    Wonderful review, sweet toy!

    I look at all these nifty new lines IAT keeps showcasing, and it makes wish I was a billionaire with a huge mansion, so I could buy and display all this stuff in a befitting manner. Alas and lackaday, I am a mere thousandaire, and rapidly running out of space in the spare room and garage. You’d think in the 21st Century, British construction firms would latch onto the idea of building homes with basements!

  • […] I mentioned in my Armorvor Review yesterday, Marty was a crucial part of how that awesome figure came to be (even though he’ll […]

  • clark

    Using the backpack as a head totally give him a Robot Jox type look. It really looks like a cockpit up there.
    I missed this version, so I ordered two of the black ones (should have gone for a stealth version too) in the most recent drop. These guys are fantastic, and I’m with you, I don’t really see myself building with him, because I like him as is.
    I can’t wait to see what the next drop will be, I’ll be getting more of these no matter what color they’re in.

  • […] previous reviews cracked the “overall” Top Ten. The Glyos System Venjorun Armorvor still saw quite a bit of traffic in its second month, and, again, the March review of Marvel […]
