ToyFinity Mordles Electra-Geist MordlesThe clear blue Electra-Geist Mordles are a great companion to the Jumbo EGD Mordle - he's Pac-Man, and they're the various ghosts. It's synergy, people - and a great idea.

The parade of Mordles so far (not counting "Vision Mordles") went a whole year without dipping its toes in clear plastic - the Electra-Geist debuted alongside the clear colorless Ardaans Mist set in July, and I think they largely made the most out of the clear thing. Green painted eyes, teeth, and fangs give them their personality - and depending on where you look at them, it's great. Unfortunately I live in a basement, so it's kind of dark and even a well-lit blue Mordle is tough to really make out easily. With lighting from either the front or the back, the little guys come to life as spooky little spectres. As always, I dig them.

The figures make use of the same 10 molds we've seen previously, all of which are reproductions of the original Rocks & Bugs & Things figures from the 1980s. The big differences are that they're a hair smaller - only perceptible if you put them next to an original - with wholly new deco. The change to clear alters how they look quite a bit - the bright colors of the first year really bring the detail to life, while the clear sucks it away. Unless, of course, you shine a flashlight through the back of the figure, in which case it really looks spectacular.

This collection was tailor-made for people in love with old video games. They may as well have come in a box that said "Get it?" The joke is pretty funny, or at least it doesn't seem to get old to me. It's delightful to see the classics referenced in the indie toy world, and maybe we'll luck into Q*Bert next or something equally strange. I'm curious how many colors will be made before the classic styles get retired, or if we're going to see more intricate colors in the future.
