I missed the first releases of this figure, but I dared not miss the grey-with-black-and-white-specks Geodraxus Grannikor. With 21 parts - including alternate head, a sword arm, and other moving bits - this is a figure which was clearly designed to last for several recolors. The clear figures look absolutely gorgeous in the online catalog photos, but they sell out quickly - they're doing nice work. This rocky granite-like figure was available and I had to snag it.
Standing 3 1/2-inches tall at the default horn, the figure sports 14 meaningful points of articulation and a rotating horn. You can swap it out for other Glyos parts, and for that reason it's quite customizable. Each joint pops apart, so you can yank off one head for another, or remove a fist and slap on a sword arm. The rocky sculpt takes the granite construction well, looking something like a toy made of a kitchen counter. I like this. Each forehead has a Glyos socket in it, so the horn or the plank can swivel around and drastically alter the figure's appearance and personality. If that weren't enough, the back of each head also looks like a head - so you can probably build a rather diverse army out of this single figure, just like that first Weaponeers of Monkaa action figure.
Thanks to the backed-in speckles in the plastic, no two of these guys are going to look exactly alike. The grey plastic has been accented with paint in quite a few spots, like the hands and feet and head and torso. The shoulders can be flipped around too, The back of the horned head has a panel you can pop off too. The customization possibilities baked in to the design are almost daunting, with a marvelous default figure that you can choose to part out, tart up, or swap with other figures.
I like it - it's a figure that allows for a lot of reconfiguring and its design looks particularly gorgeous in most clear colors. I expect I'll miss out on a clear red ruby edition some day. Whatever color you get, it's probably going to be a good one. I'm having a lot of fun goofing around with swapping parts and reconfiguring this one, so I'd say go ahead and get one when the mood strikes.
