I really don't know why the Gendrone Legion Gobon didn't sell out immediately. It took a while. I had no idea this color scheme was coming, but I had incorporated it into the Glyos News Dump header [archival ] because I thought it looked cool. Who knew that I would have a figure of it in a few months?
There have been nearly 20 of these guys, not including a few limited editions, and historically they seem to be, sadly, slower sellers. The portly robot is probably one of the best bangs-for-the-buck in Glyos in terms of mass and options as you get a reversible head, a hidden second head, plus a body which can be flipped and made to look like a comical, portly fellow or a more aggressive bot of death.
While as of yet unlreleased, Gobon has a companion figure called Noboto. Prototypes of this figure exist but the nifty creature has yet to be released, although it was teased he just might make it out this year.
As with previous releases, the figure has about 11 points of articulation and a grand total of 13 pieces. #13 is the second head, stored inside the body when not in use. Each limb is articulated in at least 2 spots, with a large, flat plate piece either making up the shoulders or the waist depending on how you do things. Regardless of configuration, he stands about 3 1/2-inches tall with big, glove-like hands.
What makes this Gobon unique? Note the chest tampo symbol and coloration. Other than that, he's pretty much the same as the other releases. Metallic blue hasn't been used before, and the results are pretty sharp. If it's still available, it's a fun figure for $10. I appreciate the versatile nature of the design, as you should, because why not?
