ToyFinity Mordles Geist MordlesThe first run of Geist Mordles in February ran out fast - really fast. Like, club members got theirs, and a handful of others managed to get a set when they were opened to the public. In what may be the clearest illustration of doing more runs to fill perceived demand/vocal minorities, a second run happened on these guys and the giant Geihoza Mordle that remained in stock for quite some time. They're super cool, so it pains me that they didn't fly out the virtual doors during their second run.

You've seen these styles a few times before, the molds have been run numerous times in nearly a dozen colors, plus "Vision Mordles" test shots. Each of the ten figures measures about 1-inch high and features glow-in-the-dark skin with painted green eyes, claws, and teeth - if you're familiar with Glyos, it's basically the same paint jobs that those guys get on a glow run. While this may not sound like high praise, ToyFinity did the thinkable and met expectations. Nothing here doesn't work - seeing that the popularity of Mordles is somewhat selective, their business model of running the guys in a new color every few months is fun to see. A bit tiring in spots, but such is the indie toy world - you can't possibly turn a profit selling dozens or hundreds of a set due to setting up a factory. Especially not at the consistently nutty low prices of about $1 per Mordle.

The figures charm comes from the fact that they were initially created to be food for predatory creatures in Rocks & Bugs & Things, an Ideal toy line that did not exactly have a successful run. The original 1980s Mordles didn't glow, and each of the 10 molds came in but 1 color - so ToyFinity quickly zoomed past the size of the original line, giving us these nifty guys. The indie toy obligatory clear figures haven't started showing up as of yet, and I'm somewhat glad - maybe there will be some logical reason to do a clear pink glittery Mordle some day, but I'm happy with the various colors we've had so far. The glow plastic used here has a slight translucent quality to it, so you can see light shine through it in spots making it extra ghostly, hence the name. The quality of the glowing plastic is worth praising, mostly because I've had some other figures that don't glow well that shall remain nameless because I'm a nice guy. These guys? Total winners.

For holy grail seekers, "Vision Mordles" exist of the glowing plastic with black eyes, claws, and teeth - I have one of these, and I'd love to get the rest of the set. I don't think that's likely as they were salted into random Club Mordle orders, but I can dream right? For the asking price, this is a must-buy set if you're the slightest bit curious about Mordles or if you love glowing toys. I'm both, so this is what we call a classic win-win situation here. If they're still available, do yourself a favor and drop $10 on a set.
