Even though this isn't the first metallic blue version of this character, the Crayboth Hanosyric stands out due to the fact that it's a brighter color that really has more personality than the darker version we got a few years ago. The sculpted grooves really gobble down the light, making the metallic blue swirly plastic look bright by comparison. It shipped alongside a metallic purple figure, and both are arguably worth the asking price of $3.00 per - especially if you don't yet own one or more Crayboth figure.
If you've been reading this column for a while, you know I'm fond of these guys - I've got a bunch, even different releases of the unpainted glow figure which each glow at different brightnesses. At least 38 significantly different releases of this mold exist as of my writing this review, and I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say it's one of the most essential. When I started looking at this line closely in 2010, there were only 10 flavors of this guy - so it's expanded a lot, mostly with one-color unpainted releases like this one.
The 1 3/4-inch figure looks great as always, with moving arms and legs. Some photos were shown on the Onell blog hinting that the head could some day be a separated piece you could swap out for more customization, but for now the samples remain fused together. You can still swap the arms and legs with other figures, though.
You've seen enough of these that, by now, you know what to expect - the price is right, and if you like simple, cheap little guys these are some of the best you can get. I'd love to see more variety in how they're painted - for example, any paint - but the Onell Design crew seems to be finding plastics where light tends to provide much of the needed decoration without pigment. Of course, you could paint these yourself, but I consider such a thing on a lower-run figure to be b.shtmlhemous.
