Glyos checklist - figure G001 - Standard Pheyden V1

Today, I wanted to look at one of the six original figures put out by Onell Design in their Glyos System series of figures, the standard version of Pheyden.

A main character in the Glyos system, Pheyden is a mysterious traveler who can move through time and space.
From the Glyos weblog:
"Owing to his ability to travel through the Edge of Space and phase throughout time, Pheyden has actually split into many versions of himself. He exists simultaneously in many different realities and sometimes even works with these alternate versions of himself if the need should arise. Each Pheyden has his own personality, but still follows the code of keeping infinity in order."
This Pheyden is also tasked with keeping Space Trappers Rechlen and Aves out of trouble, which they frequently get into as they maintain their spaceship zoo of rare Glyan creatures.

This is the first Pheyden introduced in the Glyos system, but it is still unclear if he is the "First Pheyden" referenced by Phanost (another Glyos character) in his writings.

One of the strongest features of these figures, other than their design aesthetic, is that they have complete interchangeability. Arms can be made shorter by using the leg pieces from the pic above - or even long. If you like transparent green Pheyden heads, you can swap them onto the standard blue body for your own preferred design. Pheyden can be ripped into his component parts and rebuilt into other configuration...oh yes, many other things can be built with these figures, which you will see...in time.

Each figure is made from high-quality PVC, and can take a beating from an adult collector or a child. There are videos floating around the net of Glyos figures being thrown into concrete, slammed into walls...they are quite durable.

Glyos figures can be purchased at http://www.onelldesign.com/store.html for the low, low price of $8 each. The Standard Pheyden shown here is no longer for sale - the orignal Glyos were made of a very hard plastic that did not represent accurately the intention of the creator - but you can buy the new V2 version of this figure and start your collection today.
