Any time I hear that there's a new line coming from the same factory as Glyos, I wonder "so when do we get the glow in the dark version?" The Mordles Geihoza Vinyl Figure is, like the red Imbalance of Blood Mordle, compatible with vinyl Glyos figure parts like Armodoc limbs and Rig arms. I don't know how closely the glow matches, as I don't have any glowing Glyos vinyl just yet. (If you're selling, I'm buying.)
While the previous red version will no doubt delight your average figure collector, my fellow fans of glowing toys will go bonkers for this one. The ghostly off-white vinyl glows easily and well. Put it in front of a light bulb, and it'll glow nicely - I have other figures (which shall remain nameless) that don't do quite as well, but this guy? Perfect. If you light it from behind it has this eerie quality that's a little different than the smaller Geist Mordles, and the deco is really something. As with before, the eyes and claws are painted with white teeth and a green mouth. At 4-inches tall, it's a solid size for a hollow figure.
As Glyos-compatible vinl goes, this is probably the finest design you can buy from any of the various companies making this stuff. It doesn't do much - the feet swivel and that's it - but it really does look and feel like some weird 1980s figure that you missed out on. The Glyos compatibility is nice and all, but when you get right down to it this is is a wonderful little collectible with a run that was too low. (According to the shop, most of them were sold before non-club members had a crack at it. This is why you join the club.)
From where I sit, usually a glow-in-the-dark release means I don't necessarily need more of the mold. With the big Mordle I might keep going anyway - the design is charming and the price is right, I could see a bunch of these populating my office. The Imbalance of Blood figure has sat on my desk since it arrived in November, which to me is the strongest vote of confidence I can give a toy - precious few others have stayed on my desk for long periods of time. When you get a chance, get a big Mordle.
