Glyos: TMNG Line

The newest line of Onell Design’s famous glyos universe dropped last week. We got a sick crossover going with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, including Bebop, Rocksteady, Shredder, and the Foot ninjas. By the time I got to the site, the only ones left were the turtles and shredder, so I scooped the four brothers and a non TMNT ninja. Let’s take a look at these guys and how they compare to other releases by the Onell Design crew. The first thing to look at are the accessories. Each turtle gets a baton or gun shaped piece in gray or brown, along with 2 cone tips and knives of the same color. These are exclusives from Toyfinity’s Robo Force line. Also included is a backpack piece to work as a shell and an alt Quallerran head. 

The figures themselves, being made from a Nobato mold, stand at a shorter height compared to other Glyos line figures. Compared to a Pheyden and 481universe’s Outlander, the turtles are roughly half an inch shorter (2.25″)

Onell Design used four different shades of green for each character, just like how they were in the 2003 TMNT series. I noticed the hands lacked the black lining in other Nobato figures which made them look closer to the cartoons, and of course the obvious head bands and yellow and brown shells do as well.

My only issue with these are how they hold their weapons. I think that how the hand is molded affects this, and they seem to hold things at an angle. It looks like there is a lip for pegs to sit in the hands that is raised a bit more on one side than the other.

All in all, I like these figures a lot and they make a great addition to any Glyos collection.
