The Onell Design's Glyos Thread

Postby NoisyDvL5 » Sun Oct 23, 2011 8:05 pm

I can't believe we didn't have a Glyos thread. I just dropped some change and came back here to talk about my latest haul... and I'm dumbfounded for not having a thread for this great line already (especially considering the lines I give whole forums to around here...).

This drop ( http://onelldesign.com/store ) took me somewhat by surprise, because (and I say this in full shame) haven't had much chance to break out my September drop goodies yet! I've tinkered with him here and there but life's been hectic since early August and it shows no signs of slowing down. So here I am with a box full of the last drop and hungrily ordering from the new drop.

I didn't get to pick up a ton this time around. I snagged the Strike Team & Deep Hunter Glyans along with some joints, the gorgeous Strike Team Sarvos (I think Sarvos is my all-time favorite Onell figure).

I was going to snag a new Rig because the red/white combo looked amazing, but then Matt went and surprised me with an unannounced blue/white combo. I was frozen with indecision and my meandering saw them both sell out. It wasn't meant to be. It's all good though becasue I took the funds for the Rig and applied to them picking up all the parts for this bad boy:

He's going to kickass and I was a little bummed that he'd gotten dropped for my budget, so I'm certainly not disappointed. Someday, the Rig will come in what I would deem "perfect colors" and there'll be no hesitation then... Muah-ha-ha-h--- *cough*, *cough*, *cough*...

What's the perfect Rig colorway, Noisy? [smile]

You would ask me that... [sweat]

I've thought about that many times, but I'm still not sure. The only Rig I have thus far is the clear one, and while I like the toy, I just can't appreciate it as much in "stealth" mode. Of the colorways so far, I think the two today were the best two ( though I loved the Spectre & Classified versions). I saw someone on the October Toys Forum mention Metroid colors which would be spiffy, but that's a different appreciation.

Anyway, I think my answer is that I'll know it when I see it. Right now, while I'm still chewing over that blue rig, I'd say reversing the colors so it was mostly blue with white would be sweet... but doing that to the red one would even be more awesome because I love "fire engine colors"... which also makes me think about the yellow/emergency fire truck colors... and then there's that I'm always up for some crazy Orange (a color too oft neglected in glyodom)... and some metallics never hurt anybody...

Did I mention it's a fantastic sculpt?? [wtf]

I'm still mostly just good for part swapping and light building, but I'm getting better. My wife has much more fun with Glyos than I can and I'm jealous. :lol:

Speaking of that mindset, any of you guys keeping tabs on Matt's "Twisty" creations? He's like ToyGuyver, he can make a figure out of anything...
