Here's a good one. Debuting at New York Comic Con, Orbitron was a fairly quick sell-through online. Given the price it's somewhat surprising, as the New York trio was $15 more than the San Diego versions. Perhaps this is because the colors were way cooler? I think so. (Actually I think it had to do with the fact multiple outlets were selling these figures and had to make a mark-up, but I digress.)
One of the teller figures in this line so far, which makes it one of the tallest Glyos-compatible figures you can get, Orbotron is held together with Glyos pegs. The swivels in the biceps are the smaller Glyos peg (found in Alpha 7 and Gemini) while the rest are pretty standard Glyos fare, allowing you to swap them to your heart's content.
Purple is a good color for the brainy alien from - heh - Uranus. Swapping bits and pieces with other figures is easy, allowing you to create a unique mix. Well, some of you. This sort of thing engages some sort of latent obsessive compulsive nature so I have to reconfigure it back to normal pretty quickly or someone I love will die.
Like the previous release of this figure, he has blue eyes and a blue dot on his belly. His weapons are now yellow rather than green, which pops a little better.
The buggy alien has about 12 meaningful points of articulation, plus a removable brain. It's super-cool. You'll love it. Get any color you can, the painted one should be good and as of when this goes live, it hasn't shown up in the mail. Or shipped. But I'm looking forward to it.
