REVIEW: Glyos System – Pheyden and Exellis
There aren’t nearly enough retro looking toys out on the market. But Onell Design has brought us back to the 80’s with their sci-fi inspired Glyos System line. There are currently three different body designs available. The figures that we will be reviewing here are the Nebula Pheyden (purple), Cyber Ghost Exellis (clear and orange) and the Solaris Exellis (glow in the dark red).
How a little back-story:
Rebelling against his tyrannical creators in the Glyos System, Prototype Sincroid Exellis battles for the freedom of his mechanical brethren as leader of the Lost Sincroid Revolution.
Hailing from the fabled Edge of Space in the mysterious Glyos System, Space Traveler Pheyden journeys through endless dimension securing the order of the infinite universe and patching holes in the fabric of time.
The Glyos Series figures are packaged in small, window front boxes that specify which character (either Exellis or Pheyden) is enclosed. Each figure is secured in a plastic tray and includes a comic and a card with the characters listed on it.
Both the Pheyden and the Exellis figures measure in at 2.75” in height. They have 12 points of articulation and all of those points are detachable. You can then interchange those pieces with any other Glyos System Series figure. And all of the figures are made of durable injection molded PVC plastic.
Who doesn’t love the retro look of the Glyos System Series? Maybe blend up a little M.U.S.C.L.E. with some M.A.S.K. and add a dash of Tron. Each character is available in a number of different colorways, including clear plastic and glow in the dark. Plus, you can just pop them apart and create all sorts of new figures. It’s really no wonder they are one of our favorite mini figure lines available.
