I already had one in chrome, but I had to get the Forest Capsule Carrying Case too - I wanted one that didn't show fingerprints as easily as the Regen Capsule [FOTD #2,114]. It's a wonderfully simple toy, with a design that is a pastiche of the Knights of the Slice figure, the various Pharoids and related Micronauts capsule, and a hint of Kenner carrying case. As a toy, it's not terribly interesting unless you want to futz with the six Glyos ports, or are fidgety, or like putting things inside of other things. I like all of this, so I found this to be very exciting.
The bio on the Toy Pizza shop included feelings of mellowness from the use of this chamber - so I'm sure the green color can be extrapolated to particularly potent counterculture conclusions. I just thought it looked cool - and I hope we see it in other colors to mimic C-3PO, Darth Vader, and of course cartoon C-3PO.
As with before, it's hinged at the bottom with a clip at the top to keep it shut. It's not quite as tight as the other one, and it's not as prone to showing off fingerprints. You can still see the same detailing, with giant lips and numerous pizza motifs throughout the figure. On the back are numerous wires and cables, plus another pizza slice. You really can never have enough pizza, and the various superfluous rivets, vents, and other greeblies feel like they would be right at home on a 1980s Takara robot toy or action figure. This was designed by someone that did their homework.
The green color closely matches previously released Glyos figures, particularly the "Lime" ones from Knights of the Slice. The plastic is nice and clear, with a tiny bit of distortion around the eyes.
I'd say the surest sign of this being good was my immediately recommending a friend buy a bunch to customize - I would love to see fully-painted versions in the future. Particularly if they can make it look/feel like a big cardboard pizza box somehow, I think fans would get a huge kick out of this silly thing. It serves no real purpose but it is a handy expansion as to what a Glyos toy can be outside the usual PVC figures and vinyl pieces. I'd love to see more things in this sort of format - a little box to keep parts in could be quite handy. I look forward to the inevitable glow capsule!
