Gold! Another of The Council of Travelers, this gold Traveler Urballim Pheyden reminded me a lot of C-3PO. If you put him next to the Imaginext Jedi Force figure, they're quite similar in stature and could easily swap vehicles. While not painted, this Pheyden does have a rich, swirly gold plastic that looks great.
He also looks cool next to R2-D2. Urballim Pheyden is one of a few golden figures, with a matching Crayboth and Armorvor sold around the same time. Other gold Glyos releases exist, so you can swap limbs or heads to your heart's content. I had a gold Govurom head in my stash, and you'll see below that it's slightly different. To reiterate, the head was not included - it's a freebie from an August 2011 series, at which time gold Argen MK IV and a Phaseon Gendrone Revolutionary were sold.
Deco was light on this figure, as some of the releases are created with less paint in mind. The gold body and limbs are unpainted, with the only decoration visible on the eyes. Super-sharp black, blue, and white eyes pop right out of the gold skull and one can't help but wonder what even more paint would do to bring this guy to life. The level of detail is more or less what you've expected over the years, and the parts pop out nicely.
Despite being a low-run figure, the prices on eBay remain pretty cheap - about $15 or so, roughly double the initial asking price. For those of you who do not have the pleasure of owning a Pheyden, it's worthwhile to pick one up regardless of color. If you like gold, go gold - the figure can be separated at each point of articulation, and is made of 13 pieces of plastic. They're great figures for your Imaginext or Playskool-sized vehicles and playsets, and to date (unfortunately) there are no typical "space ships" in the traditional sense for them. They're still pretty cool, and are great figures to keep on your desk for fidgeting purposes.
