There's one guy in the blog comments bitching. He seems to think Matt sell most of his stock ahead of time to the Glyos Illuminati, which means nothing's there for him when he wanders in a hour after the drop starts.
Looks like godbeast is gearing up for a presale release of the new titan mushi (delayed) and 3 new kabuto mushi (in-hand) 12/20/15 8pm cst. All info on his blog and other social media today.
He's not entirely wrong.Matt doesnt really bother himself to have sufficient supply to meet demand at all.
If you aren't there for the first 15 minutes, you're shit out of luck. Not everyone is able to make it to the drop. I'd say he has a right to be angry.
That's retarded. So your saying he should double his order, not sell out, then listen to collectors bs about how it wasn't popular/didn't sell out/Glyos is kill/etc. Unfuckingbelievable! Some of you manbabies are out of your little fucking minds! I have an idea, how about a can of shutthefuckup?
Oh my there's the salt I was missing from the forum, thank you.
People love new molds. That's a fact even the first grantham sold out immediately. People were talking about wanting to buy three or four of most of the glyarmor molds. He totally coulsve ordered more. Nothing cool sits in the store for long.
what makes you think they wouldn't still sell out considering how fast they go already?
more importantly why do they need to sell out so insanely quickly to be considered a success when the other apparently less desired releases don't go for at least a day or two
as if even that is a long time for a toy to be in stock
any other toy company would still be over the moon to see their entire stock of a new product sell in just a few days
let me spell it out nice and slow for you so maybe you can understand
popularity of new molds dies down eventually
even once super successful molds like the armorvor have wound up sitting in the store for months
if you produce the new mold in such massive numbers(lets say.. 1000 of each colorway) that everyone can literally army build with them and still have them in the store, you have successfully killed all interest in the mold within a single release.
if your autism means you absolutely must have this black version of the mold and not the next black one that will come out in a year and a half then spend an extra $10 and buy one off ebay or a BST in the next 2 or 3 weeks. christ.
oh damn bro
here's the first release of the Skeleden which sold out just as fast less than a year after release for sale on ebay for less than it was fucking sold for.
if only the same exact thing won't happen here... right. Pretty sure the only figure in the last 2 years that can still safely be called rare is Redlaw Phanost.
I'll be selling mine to THE HIGHEST BIDDER!
For real I bought one of each because fuck thinking about it, but now that I've had time to look at the pics I'll probably unload the villiser and enforcer ones.
>entitled manbabby complaints
>"well deserved criticism"
>Matt doesnt really bother himself to have sufficient supply to meet demand at all.
Because demand fluctuates a lot. For every first release of a new mold you get shit like Glyaxia 2 that hung around for a year after its release. Matt has to play things safe.
Glyaxia 2 deserved to sit around for a year and more. Jesus christ what a terrible color choice. Yes, lets take a fan favorite colorway and totally change the colors, leave out the detail lines, ditch the electric blue visors, and make everything look like literal babyshit. "I wonder why it's not selling!? I thought people loved Glyaxia?!" God it looked awful.
Shit, how much is that bird gonna cost on the aftermarket? I fucked up and missed it
It's not the actual molds themselves. It's individual instances of any given mold. Like an individual cool-looking character
If we're not there for the first hour, chances of getting the cool stuff are nil
Isn't the red just metallic red with some green paint apps? I guess Marty said the mystery cray shares a color with KM, so it could be that. Or it could be the cum bucket colorway...such a stupid choice if so, but I think this is most likely.
Marty never said anything about the mystery cray from what I have seen. There was a person quoting Marty from dcon said he said the jizz colorway was going to be run by other companies down the line.
The jizz colorway Mushi was called a collab between TGB and Onell, which I took to mean the jizz colorway was something Matt developed, and then offered to Marty to run first.
Matt apparently told someone the mystery Cray was from a future Glyos color, so I'm assuming it's the jizz PVC.
Cry about it faggot. All you pussies do is whine, whine, whine. Pull your head out of your ass and realize that you will be able to get the same exact thing in different colors for years, and if this colorway is so ball shatteringly important then you can put your poorfag money where your mouth is and cram it up your ass. Or buy it off ebay. Up to you shitstain. God forbid Onell doesn't bankrupt the entire company by ordering 2000 of every figure for a drop so a dozen whining cocksuckers can buy an indie company's toy days after it's put up for sale.
>Matt should know a new mold is going to be wildly popular and like double his normal order.
Here is the truth that no one will to tell you. If people could buy as much, and often of any color, glyos would die. The whole thing is based on this indie, hipster, Iknowaboutitandnooneelsedoes mentality.
>I shall spread my knowledge to the world and clearly I am correct based on my extensive knowledge of indie business enterprise.
you faggots will fucking argue about anything even when you don't have a fucking clue.
Incorrect, Marty wanted the colorway, then Matt offered to test it out on a cray as he has on several metallic colorways for Marty. Here is photo proof on a pic he posted almost 2 months ago on social media sites. Maybe I'm the only one that caught it.
So last thread there was a fellow trying to sell two lots. Anyone try and pick those up? If so how many of you actually paid, and did he send the picture I attached to this comment? Starting to think I need to retract Paypal payment since no response from the fellow.
Looks like godbeast has posted another mechanical and it is pearlescent white with gloss black paint. I guess like a molting insect.
Huge fan of TGB, but $33 and $41 for a vinyl figure as big as Armo/Syclodocs is a bit rich for my blood. Not to mention shipping will be a minimum extra $6.
It looks awesome and everything, but I can't get over how the hands just look like footers.
I'll be passing for now and I'll pick up a white one later on secondhand when I have more money to throw around.
Jizz Mushi looks great too, I want one with paint apps and one without paint apps, looking forward to picking those up sometime next year.
I'm skipping this drop. As cool as the Clear/Black Mushi is, it's the only one I am interested in and the Titans are a bit too expensive for what they offer.
My Onell order should be here Tomorrow or Tuesday so that has me hype!
Depends on how you like your bugmen
however the red circle could be larger side to side, and down, since technically in the bug world it would be more likely that bottom blue ring is the area near the abdomen, and the two black spots above it in blue circle are a 3rd set of eyes. but hey it's up to you, I think the face is on the back, the black parts circled are different eyes like infrared and thermal and something, then red part circled is where gas comes out to inoculate victims, and all middle clay colors and browns are hard carapace for armor black pincer at the top like scorpion claw, quad-pedal design to run on all fours for movement increase, bipedal for certain offensive attacks. In short this Titan is like a tank but better, and sexier in that insect way
I love the sculpt, but I can't get over the feet hands.
I get it being on all four legs as an alt pose, but making it painfully obvious isn't the point of it.
I love Marty and I love Kabuto Mushis, and I respect that Marty's passions are coming to life, but my personal preferences are getting in the way from me owning an otherwise amazing sculpt.
I'm not butthurt over it.
I'm happy that Marty is continuing to follow his passion in life and has created something new.
I'm also happy for everyone else that will buy the sculpt and appreciate it.
I personally love it besides the hands and won't be buying it because of it.
I hope Marty sells out and makes as many other molds of it as he wants that also sell out.
Why are you trying so hard to shit up the Glyos thread?
i got my glyarmor guy in, def my favorite so far.
i got this in as well, honestly i was expecting it to have legs but I kind of like how it is like a monolith guy. lots of small parts for building it seems like it will make a good addition for anyone looking for a standalone figure with lots of good building fodder
Oh shit, lots of great new robot parts! I was worried it was going to be some kind of human figure to go with the Robo Force robots.
Flesh is eh but it's just a test shot. Looking forward to buying them in more colors.
Jesus christ this roboforce club is probably the worst thing I've ever given money to in my entire life, and I've thrown money into motherfucking water fountains.
>shit looking gold RF
>simple reverse of an already released Skeleden in a lame color combo
>awful flesh color of new mold
>pink callgrim, probably best thing on list but literally no connection to roboforce or toyfinity in any way
>still no max modules
>still no lenticular stickers
>promised roboforce releases to include options of blanks, painted, and detail line painted = 2 releases since the club was offered a year ago, 1 of which gave these options to everyone and 1 which contained no releases
>Matt just releases roboforce whenever he wants now because he knows Kent is incompetent dipshit who ran line into ground and he did all the work anyway
I hate Kent.
Honestly if the Maxx Modules really do build another complete Maxx, the membership will be worth it for me. Selling the Skeleden and Callgrim let me makc enough back. Although yeah I'm disappointed in the colors on the club stuff and it's weird that Onell is just cranking out new RF colors.
Although to be honest I'm kind of sick of metallics. This semi-translucent metallic toothpaste is gross.
What's weird about it? Doughty designed, sculpted, and prototyped it 100% himself. What did Kent do? Oh, he bought the rights to the name Roboforce and paid for the mold. What makes anyone think Kent is a toy designer? What has he designed or sculpted? WTF do you expect? Everyone got most of what was promised, just because it isn't in the colors you want doesn't give you the right to be a whiny little bitch.
So it doesn't have treads? It's a solid piece? Probably designed to use existing RF parts then to make it more Zeroidesque then. Wonder is he's going to sell these seperate or bundled with existing RF kits
Type Zero is Orange
Freebies I got were the bottom crayboth and the extra torso and head
Well.. Eventually someone will come along who can tell us what's zero and what's freebie
>Stealth Glyarmor kneepad/gauntlet pieces are nearly impossible to get the hands in
Well that's extremely disappointing.
Glyos Haul + other stuff
I've only got Arthas atm and am waiting for a better Illidan figure. Once you get his joints unstuck he definitely feels nice, but his torso only really moves side to side and twisting. Overall feels nice and the sculpt is great.
I'm so fucking mad. This was one hell of a drop and I missed everything good due to a work related emergency that lasted hours and left me with no phone or internet access. This is the first time I've missed a drop in a long time, feels bad man.
So what was so special about the "special" extra set included with Hades and GITD Sarvos?
I hate the design of this thing. It's like they tried to fit 3 faces into it, and the stubby feet barely work as insect feet, and the hands, oh GOD the hands look like garbage. I wish he'd just release the skinny prototype Kabuto Mushi with the awesome high antlers.
Anyone working on ideas to submit here ----> http://glyoverse.tumblr.com/ ?
>shitty photo, i kno
SUCH LOW NUMBERS THATS ITS BEEN SITTING IN THE STORE FOR ALMOST A WEEK!!!!
>I know, I'll make one in the cheapest color way possible, call it a test shot, and charge double!!!
Yeah, I'll probably only ever get a few of the vinyl mushis, rally only if Marty does some of my favorite colorways like Reydurran or something. I did pick up the black and white larva one though because it matches a lot of stuff I already have.
Looks like they're selling well for him. Everyone and their dog dropped, now Christmas, and still low stock all over his store with piles of boxes at his place.
So your the authority on test shots? Please enlighten us all on your production toy making knowledge from the Glyos factory. Looks like he has a glyarmor test shot too, so explain that?
You sound jealous that his drop appears to be going so well. Either your a jealous collector who can't afford his rarities or your a jealous sister company and consider his products a threat to yours. lol
Guyz....calm down...either u dig it or u don't. No need 2 get all worked up. Once those that ordered get their loot...I'm pretty sure they will digg'em. ;) Merry X-mas!!! Happy New Year!!! Be safe everyone!!! :)
Assuming this is actually you, I do like the design, it's just the hands that people have an issue with.
Regular crab pincers could have worked or even include an optional set of claws so that there is a quad-mode set and a biped set.
Sure, but, I didn't want his hands 2 look rounded/weird down on all 4's...trust me, I sculpted them originally slightly rounded...not a good look (especially on all 4's)...better this way (2 me). ;)
>Funny how collectors have an opinion before they even hold or mess around with one.
It's not like touching something suddenly makes it look less shitty. An ugly car is still ugly while you're driving it lol
Armodocs and Rigs aren't as cheap as they were to produce now. Armodocs have the most pieces in terms of vinyl, and they are still running at just $25. Rigs are always released as Heavy Rigs, with the Rig Arms conversion sets. It took forever to sell out Tri Wedges and without them, Vinyl Pins are useless.
Man, this really was a solid drop. Such a nice, cohesive group.
Oohhh, it's you! I saved some of your pics before. You made me really want that Playmobil play set thingy for my Glyos. I've also been looking for a ship for my Pheyden for a really long time. Almost ordered a small one from their website, but the shipping was a severe ripoff.
Word. They go pretty great together. The little shop there is about $25 on ebay, which isn't too bad for a discontinued set. It's the. Future Planet, just fyi.
The turbojet from the same line looks pretty good, too.
It's a bit of a pipe dream, but I'd love to get the big space station. Probably never happen though.
Thing is that nobody but you seems to care about putting this guy on all fours. He looks better standing up where you can actually see the vast majority of the sculpted detail. You compromised the standing look for an on-all-fours look that still suffers and looks poor anyways. Just a shame is all.
>Thing is that nobody but you seems to care about putting this guy on all fours.
Yeah it looks retarded standing on all fours, with the arms spread out like that and the tiny back legs. It looks so good standing up, except for the weird hands. It's honestly more disappointing when a toy is 95% great than when it's a total failure.
It was just completely unnecessary. The hands really put me off the figure, which is a huge shame because I was looking forward to these huge mushis for a long while. Is what it is, and I'm sure enough people will pile in and buy them to keep things going just fine. Wont be me though.
Excuse me, Glyans, I need your help! Is there any way to get pheyden or traveller hands in a mirrored version? Is it possible to get two fists or two open hands that aren't both the same sided thumb?
Also, would there be any good way to dye or stain an ugly stealth plastic figure?
Also, is there a scarf that will work with other heads that aren't Pheyden? Like Phanost or Sarvos?
Sorry, I didn't realize that I had accidentally wandered into your "safe space". I was under the false impression that I could voice my opinion here about one disappointment I was experiencing with the design of a toy. Thanks for setting me straight friend but next time it'd help if you would clearly label your safe space so that mistakes like these don't happen in the future.
>He said they ship in January you retarded piece of shit.
Yeah, and before that it was the 28th, and before that it was the week of Christmas. Hes been stringing us along for half a month.
Lol at you faggots for bitching about a clearly la led pre order. Say what you will about godbeast but he is and always has been the fastest Glyos shipper and one of the fastest shippers of any business ever. I can't remember the last time I waited more than 2 days for a package from him
please stop shitting up the glyos thread with your hate for titan mushi. this is supposed to be a happy toy place... you're invading my sanctuary. stahp. I just want the rainbow roads of pvc back.

The reason the Glyos thread is dying out on /toy/ is because there are too many miserable pessimist assholes here. The new couple sites that started after October's forum died are a lot more fun and positive. It's people who love the toys posting their artsy photos, artwork, builds, fanfics, buying/trading, etc. I've noticed far less assholes and whining there.
>it's still December you retard, so shut the fuck up.
Fuck you, you fan boy, apologist, scum bag, piece of shit. He took peoples money and keeps pushing back the delivery date. At this point, shit won't be out until after chinese new year.
If he didn't have a solid shipping estimate, his stupid ass shouldn't have sold them.
This is easily the best traveller build I've come across in terms of articulation. It's WAY more posable than anything else I've tried, and it actually looks really cool.
Here are some more of the same build. I currently don't have enough matching parts to make my own though. My cousin and I managed to build one, but it's colors were all over the place.
Those two pictures were from the Internet. The one I built was a lot more jumbled in terms of part colors. Mine didn't have the backpack thing when it was built with a Pheyden body, but my Hades Pheyden has a backpack piece equipped. Can't visualize why, or where the peg hole is on the back ATM, but I'm out and about so I can't check it right now.
Never heard of this build or character, so I looked it up on google and found this one too. Are these custom corp?
One of two custom heads he did with Marty a while back. (You had to order them from Marty or get them at a Con) Matt whipped up the body using Buildman parts, axis joints, and phase arms. It was never for sale on its own.
I know the dude is just being a retarded troll but holy shit, don't ever show that person what kickstarter is.
They can't even read that it was explicitly posted shipping would be Mid-January, no way they would last as long as a lot of kickstarters go for production-wise.
Anyone noticed the angry elephant chest yet?
Id love an angry glyos elephant.
Yeah, I'd be willing to bet he does. He's an all around calm and friendly dude who's super generous. He's a hipster artist from the east coast. He has posted numerous things about making music before, and they had those rasta colors and seemed to be reggae shit. Now he made these weed leaf vinyl record part things. Preeeetty sure he "Chiefs it totes hard 420 blaze it bro".
Damn man, they haven't even finished being produced yet? And then what, a month lag after they are shipped?
At this point, they probably wont even leave china until after CNY so we will be getting them in march sometime.
I cant help but feel like he used this presale as a (not so) short term loan to meet his production costs.
Could be. Factory could've fucked up like on HACKS. I so wish they were already out, but I at least trust Marty to deliver...eventually. He's usually pretty fast so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. Kind of sucks though.
HACKS wasn't fucked up, Boss Fight didn't plan well.
Their initial designs for Marauder Task Force had a flaw which was discovered after production, but before shipping to backers. After CNY, factories have to retrain the workforce as many don't return to the same factory. This added to the delays as Marauder did several test runs as a great cost to make sure the final version was perfect. Boss Fight basically used them as the guinea pig.
At the same time, Boss Fight was never actually ready to go into production for HACKS yet despite what they kept telling backers.. The Skeleton wasn't designed and test 3d printed until just before JoeCon last year. After that they continued to push off going into production as they weren't ready for all the factory test runs.
Right now Boss Fight says HACKS will be delivered in Feb. Don't bet on it. The production run - remember all the ones shown have been hand painted 3d prints or short test run versions - actually doesn't look as great as the early samples. Boss Fight will ship then anyway as they've long since blown through all the kickstarter money getting an expensive office, remodeling, two trips to China for a week, weekly salaries, and other expenses. That's why we're starting to suddenly see new figures not included in the kickstarter to get new funds.
idk dude i think that if that was the case he would have actually been upfront with it. Not that im here to defend anyone but all of these glyos creators are self employed and live off fans buying thier shit. theres nothing to gain from lying about presales. I'm sure that it actually is just the factory making mistakes, which is unavoidable
Mutts banned from secret santa
robo force cruel, ultimate cruel, ultimate brutal, weaponeers of monkaa soldier and warrior, and "fixer" which looks like an addon kit to give your figures black arms now is up on toyfinity.
i was hopin for the blanks, ordered a weaponeers set, ultimate cruel, and a fixer.
I think Glyos fits Playmobil stuff almost perfectly. I remember old sets being used in photos on the OT forum. That's why I had a tinge of excitement about the impending Funko x Playmobil stuff. If there are sets coming it'll be great to use with Glyos.
The expensive ones always have a lot of paint apps or extra parts. I didn't like the idea of Ultimates until I got the Maxx Steele Ultimate. It's just unbelievable that I don't mind the occasional $35 splurge for one. I'm a little more curious how a Gendrone Defender is $14 and Sentinel with equal parts and paint apps is $16, but I'm guessing Onell Design places a larger order than Doc Kent does for the figures.
Basic Cruel isn't too bad considering it has basic paint apps and 59 pieces for $24.
>Funko x Playmobil
I really want something good to come from this idea. Playmobil has always been good for a playset to use.
>dem heavy glyans
>dat real-type colors
>Argen died and got chopped up by Glyaxia
I really should learn to empty my pockets before laundry.
This is the new (shit) status quo. It makes some sense from the business end- no list or barely notice of a list can have people nearly blind buy out of excitement, whereas having a list a week ahead of time lets people really decide on their purchases and cut things down to what they only really, really want.
But I fucking hate it, all the same.
>But I fucking hate it, all the same.
Amen. I have two things in mind. The more we don't know, the more I lock down to just what I focused on up to the point the store opened. I save quite a bit because of it
Well it's a tad rough when your working cause of the Tuesday night switch, plus your ordering for 3 ppl who have no idea what we're all buying yet. I've been playing up I haven't been feeling well so far and have had a few toliet breaks. I'll be sneaking in there when it goes down.
So, can anyone who has experience with the whatchamabots tell me how much one of these is gonna cost?
also, is this the same (transformable) build? or a different arrangement?
Oh man, that ugly square thing is gonna be worth bank!..
but i totally cant convince myself to buy some horrendus hideous square that i honestly dont care about for the sake of reselling
Different strokes. I've got a bunch of the 'real type' sandy stuff from a few years ago though so I don't feel like I need more. Plus the red Sarvos mouthpiece looks like a clown nose to me and I can't unsee it.
