It took me a while to track down the Crayboth Pack 5 Red and Green Aura (and it cost me) but it was worth it! For those of you not in the know, the Onell Design Glyos toys tend to be produced in limited numbers and most designs are eventually permanently retired. The glow-in-the-dark red "Solaris" plastic was used back around 2008 but for reasons not fully explored, it is no longer in production. (I've heard rumors of changes in toy safety regulations and increasing materials costs may have had something to do with it but haven't seen anything remotely official with either.) The "Green Aura" figure has seen additional production runs, as recently as 2012, but the red one has been sold out since before I started pursuing them in 2010.
If you like Glyos, you know the drill with Crayboth - they're about 1 1/2-inches tall, have 4 points of articulation, and their limbs are fully swappable with other Glyos-system compatible toys (Callgrim, Outer Space Men, Banimon, etc.) Some have painted panel lines, but the vast majority of them do not - also, many of these exist in some weird limbo state because Onell Design never sold some of them, but they were given away for free with orders. As such, tracking down a complete set (or even a checklist) is something of a hassle. It's worth noting that this set was indeed sold and was the first of the five boxed Crayboth 2-packs to permanently sell out.
As each figure is unpainted, there's not a lot of detail to crow about - the figures look great, as always, but the Red Aura variety looks better in normal daylight. The Green Aura version basically looks devoid of sculpted detail thanks to how the light hits him. For those of you who are true fans of Glow in the Dark toys, it is unquestionably worth your while to buy everything you can that comes out of the Glyos factory - glow-in-the-dark figures for Callgrim, OMFG, Weaponeers of Monkaa, and many others have some of the finest glow-in-the-dark plastic I've ever seen on a cheap toy. They work great, and you should snag 'em.
The red Solaris-colored Crayboth figures are somewhat scarce, but won't set you back too much. Expect to pay about $10-$15 for one, or $20 for the boxed 2-pack. The green aura figure is much more common, and probably won't be more than four dollars - less if you get it as one of the reissues, as Onell may rerun them yet again. To date, there haven't been painted Crayboth figures that glow-in-the-dark but I would suspect we will see one in the future. I spent a couple of years trying to get a set of these, and I think it was worth the effort - if you like glowing toys or Glyos toys, I doubt you'll be dispapointed.
