New Star Wars Clone Wars Vehicle Guns are Compatible with Glyos Toys July 26, 2011
Here's a surprise from 16bit labs! We discovered new Clone WarsMini-Vehicles have weapons which can connect to Glyos creations. if you have Buildmen or Pheyden or other similar releases, they can hold these weapons in their fists or can connect them to an arm or head joint. Due to the smaller fist size, Outer Space Men can use them as limbs, but not as handheld weapons.
As part of its August toy reset, Hasbro released several new mini-vehicles with action figures for Clone Wars, and the Y-Wing Scout Bomber and Republic Scout Speeder vehicles incorporate small guns and accessories which, as it turns out, fit perfectly into Glyos-system joints. If you want a gun for an arm, you can do that. If you need guns for your Buildman or Pheyden, here they are-- they fit perfectly and look pretty great. You can even use the guns to make gun-armed cyborgs, if that's your thing.
It's worth noting that Outer Space Men have smaller fists and cannot carry the weapons. The OSM figures can fit inside the vehicles and can also use them as limbs, so it's a pretty slick deal if you're into this kind of thing. These mini-vehicles are available at our sponsor Entertainment Earth, Target, Toys "R" Us, and other stores for a hair under $20. You can read more about these vehicles and check out some pictures in this article I wrote for Galactic Hunter. As toy vehicles, they're wonderful unto themselves-- the unexpected Glyos tie-in was a nice bonus.
