If you don't have any of these yet, Callgrim The Order Triton is worth a look-- heck, they all are pretty good, and the one mold has so many configurations and colors that I'd say it's worth grabbing a couple if you're already on board with the Cult of Glyos. There's a story which plays out on the Callgrim web pages, but if someone just hands you a figure all you have to go from is a nifty toy with a trading card. The rest is pretty much up to you.

Callgrim The Order Triton Action FigureThe figure consists of several plastic pieces, which connect via a peg. Each piece is therefore jointed, and what you have is a combination construction toy and action figure. It keeps the joints at 1980s and early 1990s levels, with every one a flat plane. The good news is that they all work-- unlike other figure lines, I've never experienced a single painted-over or stuck joint with Callgrim or the related lines, so what you see basically just works. The guns in the picture are actually made up of several pieces, and can be reconfigured into jet packs, joints, or alternate figure constructions.

Callgrim The Order Triton Action FigureWhile a little wobbly, the figure is quite good. The default configuration uses a helmeted head rather than the skull face, and all the spare bits and pieces store on what amounts to a backpack made of heads. It's clever, and it works. I'm all for anything you can do to prevent lost parts, and cramming them to the figure's back certainly works. The skull head in particular is quite nice, in that it's very clean white with blue eyes and a little sparkle in there giving him a little character. (Having said that, I'd also like to see an extra-filthy one with cracks and maybe bugs on it, but I'm weird.)

Made of just under 30 PVC parts, this is a plastic figure which brings some of what made Xevoz great into a cheaper (and most importantly, not dead) format. There are dozens of Callgrim toys derived from this one mold, which is good and bad. It's good because you'll be able to buy new versions of a pretty good toy for years, but it's kind of bad because there have been precious few designs exclusive to RawShark. Last year we saw a really cool pair of bikes, with nifty packaging and added soft goods to boot. Jesse (of RawShark) has been doing a lot of increasingly fancy stuff with this line, but the best stuff sells out super-quick. If you aren't there the day the stuff launches, you'll miss it. And if you aren't monitoring his site, you probably won't know when the stuff launches. For the asking price it's totally worth it, but I would advise against buying just one Glyos-compatible figure. Get 2-3. If you aren't prepared to drop $20 on these figures, you probably shouldn't bother to start as the construction.shtmlects are key to enjoying the line to its fullest and, well, if you're like me and only have one figure you'll never break it apart.
