    Yeah it seems like I got into Glyos pretty late in the game unfortunately :/ I joined the two facebook Glyos communities so I'll check out there as well as your sales thread. And yeah that's partly the reason I asked is bc the only other online Glyos community I can seem to find is 4chan and like you said, toxic as all hell.

    As for parts or figures, at this point it's not any specific ones and more just trying to build up something of group of parts to build from (although I will admit the GODBEAST Monster 0 looked AMAZING and I was so sad I had missed it haha)

    Yeah, Marty has been offering some pretty cool kits of late. They get pricey but also offer a good assortment of build parts from his and other Glyos makers' kits.

    The ones I've seen on his site do look VERY fun, and are seemingly the only place to pick up the Spy Monkey weapon sets anymore. I ordered a one of the kits a few days ago which I'm eager to try out once it arrives, but man, that Guyver Mushi is calling my name.

    So I've only recently started lurking on the Onell Designs site - what are the Axis Joint Sets for?

    They're actually pretty cool - the spheres are actually two halves of a sphere that can be taken apart, but when added as-is to an existing build they provide the motion of a universal joint through the three swivels, two at the ends and one angles swivel in the center. Those and the Swing Joints can be used to give an existing figure more articulation and bulk up the design (or also just general parts)

    Ah - thank you. Do people get on an email list to be privy to new releases, or do you recommend checking the site regularly?

    No problem, glad to help. No email list that I’m aware of, usually you have to just check the Blog often. However if you’re a part of any of the Facebook groups (Glyos alliance/Glyos Syndicate) you’ll probably just be updated on the new drops from anyone, not just Onell, since odds are someone will post about it. That being said Onell just had a drop so don’t expect another one for several months from them.

    Thank you again - I keep forgetting to check FB and the like. I saw wave 90, but the brown theme wasn't doing it for me.

    Toy Pizza Knights of llthe slice restocked several pre viously released figures. Good chance to get some sans secondary mark-up.

    Currently sold out, one of CyMa’s drones General Cue -T. It is my first figure from
    KOTS of which more are likely.

    Annelid arm is still a work in progress. ⚠️

    I’m keeping them haha they have memories attached to them. I suggest keep an eye on Onells site and Toy Pizza.

    there a few toy lines made with the glyos system too. Fallout Mega Merge are made with the glyos system.

    Hey everyone! I got my first Glyos/Godbeast figures ever, and some assembly is required. That being said, I look at the GB website and it recommended to let the figures get to room temperature (which they are for sure, seeing as how it's in the upper 80's here :p ) but getting those pegs in sure is a tough one. Any suggestions? Hot water or something similar? Just some elbow grease? I've had... not great luck with figures that come apart for customization in the past.

    That’s a relatively constant occurrence for Glyos. Seems as if some parts will slide in better at a slight angle, like getting one side of the peg started then applying very little pressure to the opposite side to send it home. Once I get a part in place I rotate it a couple times to round up the peg in case it gets bends or warps during the process. It’s worked pretty well for me so far.

    Added a few more from the collaborative. Late last year I picked up several of the zullbeast offerings. Next to the godbeasts and KOTS these would have to be a favorite.
    The Super friends crossover event has some nice additions still available. I’d like for this theme to carry on for a few waves.
