It has no name, and you couldn't buy it, and I guess as of now there's no "official" record that it exists. The Gold Crayboth is another in the ongoing series of these little guys, clocking in under 2-inches tall with 4 points of articulation. Its promotional nature means you flat-out could not buy one, it was in orders as a freebie if you were to get one at all. If you didn't order stuff on December 12, 2012 you probably had to go to the secondary market, and as far as I can tell Onell Design has made no posting on its own site indicating the item was produced. If you don't read reviews like this, or aren't engaged in the Glyos community, you probably won't even be aware it exists.
I'm pretty sure I have all of the releases of this mold except for one (the unpainted black one, who's got one for sale?) and they're pretty great. As a stand-alone toy there's not much to it, but it's cute and charming. One arm is like a crab's claw, the other is similar to the weapon arms of Mega Man and Samus Aran. The feet have paw pads on the bottom, and the figure was one of three golden releases created for December's drop.
There have been a few other gold figures in the past and the golds don't quite match from batch to batch, which is more or less normal for this sort of thing.
Devoid of paint, this figure has 4 points of articulation and looks great as-is. Some (but not all) Crayboth figures get a few paint applications although it seems the Onell Design people are good at identifying how the light will dance off of a particular color of plastic and provide a pleasing (and cheaper) look. it helps keep costs down and also gives the figures a decidedly retro look as numerous toy lines skimped on the paint in the 1980s. After all, stickers could do the trick quite nicely.
When I started buying Crayboth figures, there were only 10 and 8 of them were still being sold from the manufacturer. Today I've got over 20 and I anticipate having more in the very near future. I would suggest snagging a gold one if you get a chance just because it looks so gosh darned good, but the functionality of these little guys is all pretty much the same. Get one, you'll like it. Get two, and you'll probably find yourself buying a few more as the opportunity comes up.
