I need another one of these guys like I need a hole in the head, which is a feature many Glyos figures actually include. The blue Armorvor Cosmic Wave is a lot like the other Armorvor figures, but its clear blue and white deco looks more like Outer Space Men Galactic Holiday Phase figures. To a non-Glyos fan, it just looks like a holographic figure. It's neat, I like it, I bought it.
The Neo Granthan head appears once more, giving you the dinosaur-like noggin from the past year or so. The white eyes are outlined in black, and there's a white box on the top of the head - otherwise it's a clear, unpainted piece. The body matches, with only some white markings. Little boxes and highlights give the illusion of high technology shining from the otherwise partially phased figure, giving it an otherworldly appearance. The helmeted head retains the wolf front and dog back, and let me tell you - those dog eyes are plenty creepy in white.
With 18 parts, the figure is capable of being posed and dismantled just like his many cousins. He stands, he sits, he holds various weapons - if you have some, that is. He only includes a backpack, although you can have him hold it sort of like a blaster if you're so inclined. It's nice to have so many options. Cast in blue, he looks more like some sort of galactic traveler and less like an armored Battley Beastish guy - and that's pretty nice. I like variety. I'd love to see what other sort of "cosmic" plastics can be done, maybe rainbow glitter in a clear black figure could be really something special.
Since this figure looks similar to other figures I've had in the collection for years, he feels right at home with my otherworldly occupants of the closet. I really don't need more Armorvors - really, I've got a problem - but this one was just so gosh darned nice I had to order it. Like many of the other recent ones, I don't regret it - but I am still hoping we see another new head for this guy sooner rather than later.
