My new favorite toy

My new favorite toy

I got a box in the mail today from Onell Design with several Glyos figures in it. The highlight of the box was this little guy:

He's a Gobon. He's not available for sale yet, but Matt Doughty, the creator of the Glyos System figures, has given a few of them out to some customers. I don't know much about the character of Mr. Gobon here, but he's AWESOOOOOME!

He stands right at 3.25 inches tall and is made of solid injection molded PVC. He's about as heavy as a tiny figure can be... he feels like a rock in your hand. On the surface he appears to be made up of 12 pieces...

He has an extra face on the back of his head that looks a LOT like Maximillian from The Black Hole. This is, as usual, a good thing, as Maximillian was FABULOUS!!!!

Although he looks like he'd be a nightmare to balance, much like his Glyos brethren he is extremely stable and takes a pose like a champ!

Oh ho! What's this? Could it be....

ANOTHER HEAD????? Yup. It is. An awesome cyclopean chompotron head. I just made that up.

What does Gobon do when a pretty lady Gobon walks by?

Sucks it in, of course!

Those Gobon Blasters that have been coming with random figures for a while now? Yeah... they look great on his arms!



Yeah... eat your heart out, Darth Maul!
