Red seems to be a popular color for Glyos but one that doesn't seem to show up enough to meet demand. The Gendrone Rebellion Mimic Armorvor is quite similar to the original Venjorun flavor, except now it has a metallic/pearly sheen on it. As always, deco is everything on these figures because changes to the actual mold are uncommon. A new head would be astoundingly exciting after a huge array of these guys, but the wolfy little fellow is a fast seller and it seems demand for this sculpt is still unmet. People love these things.
The candylike finish of this figure makes it a thing of beauty - the red plastic absorbs some of the detail, and the panel lines are left undecorated like previous figures. The silver makes all of the detail pop, though, and the paint on this figure is absolutely stunning. It's shiny, it's solid, and it makes everything it touches come alive. It's a crime Onell Design has yet to use it more frequently.
When shooting this one I noticed it had a striking resemblance to Silver Centurion Iron Man, as you can see below. Tony Stark would be proud of this one. The furry face is black with red and white eyes, like the gold Aurustell Elite version from late 2013. It's a smidgen different, and the neck peg's plastic color is the easiest way to tell them apart. The lack of accessories becomes a tad more apparent with each subsequent release, while writing this review I gave him a sword and a shield which really added to his personality.
As the final Armorvor of 2013, the figure's tooling still seems solid and the figure remains a bunch of fun. Along with the Crayboth and TheGodBeast's Kabuto Mushi, the Battle Beasts influence on this construction system is strong and obvious. A little more variety would be excellent, but we're just not there yet. I strongly suggest anyone who collects toys pick up an Armorvor just because it's a good toy to play around with, he can hold your Beast Saga weapons and drive your Imaginext vehicles. It's a toy for playing with, rather than looking at. One a shelf, it could become a tad monotonous but for those who like to build or customize, it seems unlikely that a better toy line for toy collectors exists today. Kids, on the other hand, probably shouldn't have these due to the choke hazard.
