    Anyone else know of or collect these? I just recently got some and they are amazing.

    Did a lengthy review of a few of them here.

    I've been following Onell since they released their very first figures in 2007. I don't have a lot of them, but I have one of each sculpt. Gobon is my favorite so far, partially because he's awesome and partially because I got mine directly from Matt's private stash. It always adds something special to a figure when you get one from the creator himself. :) 

    There's a great forum full of great people devoted to all things Glyos at October Toys:

    always somewhat interested in grabbing a couple these guys, but my exta cash always ends up going towards other stuff.

    very cool, they seem to be more popular in the urban vinyl/henshin cyborg/skull brain circles.

    Shipping has always been cheap and reliable when I've ordered. If you order right after a big "drop" (that's when a new wave or batch is released) the shipping can take longer because Matt and crew get swamped with orders and it takes them a while to sort them out and get them packaged. It's still very much a home-grown operation with Matt and his friends and wife doing the labor.

    There was just a drop recently with a new black Gobon and a new Armodoc among other things. The Armodocs are very cool and are the biggest thing they have so far (thus the $25 price). You can fit one of the regular figures inside of the Armodoc.

    I don't have any comparison photos, but the size of the standard figures is just a bit shorter than Star Wars/GI Joe/Marvel Universe figures.

    Reminds me of Mugenbine, they seem pretty neat, and seeing as I'm currently on a bit of a Mugenbine kick, may have to get a few of these guys.
