couple of Glyos compatible items before but this is the first true product from Onell that I've purchased. The first minifigure I grabbed is, I believe, Flesh Crayboth from Wave 50: Union of Exiles. I always prefer to grab the classic "flesh" colored minifigures first since I've been conditioned to their coolness thanks to M.U.S.C.L.E. Let's take a closer look at Crayboth after the break...
Height: 1 1/2 inches
Articulation: Swivel hips and swivel shoulders
Year of Release: 2015
* It looks like Onell has made dozens of Crayboths over the years but this is the first time I've ever held one in my hands. I really like the design: It's definitely very crustacean in nature with cool, clean lines that make this seem very much like a piece of armor, too.
* One of the really cool things about this figure is that Crayboth actually has articulation. That's not something you usually see with a minifigure but Onell worked swiveling joints into the shoulders and hips. The swiveling hips aren't the biggest thing ever but the swiveling shoulders are really cool. Being able to pose his "Phase blaster" is a cool feature for this little guy.
* The other unique aspect of the figure is that the joints are all removable. Theoretically you could swap these parts out with other figures, change the parts around, or create a battle damaged figure. This is a really neat feature and it kind of makes me wish I'd gotten some of the earlier Glyos sets.
By the way! It has nothing to do with the review but here is a picture my daughter took today of a couple toy pumpkins. She was supposed to take a pick of Crayboth for the review but she decided to do her own thing. You really never know what a 3-year old will do, do you?
