Plastic Imagination Rise of the Beasts Rhino and Scorpion - Blue and Green Glow Action Figures SetA surprise! In June 2019 I got a message from Jon "Little Rubber Guys" Karis with glow in the dark blue and green versions of his Rhinoceros and Scorpion figures. No names, no dates, just a surprise - and of course, I immediately had to photograph them for a review in the future. I shot Rhino and Scorpion - Blue and Green Glow individually, and it turns out they'd be a four-pack. Ah well.

Not only was it the first-ever glow-in-the-dark Rise of the Beasts figures, but it may well be the very first (that I saw, anyway) mass-produced glow-in-the-dark blue glow PVC Glyos figures. (Or maybe I missed one somewhere.) There was a blue glow Z.O.M.B.I.E. set [FOTD #751] from October Toys, but the plastic was much less saturated and the glow showed up best under direct black light only. These new guys are obviously blue, a milky-blue color that may remind you of those early GameBoy Advance consoles.

For best results, you want to use your black light or direct sunlight to activate the blue glow figures. In normal indoor light they do glow a bit, but the effect is much more pronounced with extremely bright direct light or the UV light bulb I assume you got cheap from Walmart. It shines nicely in the right conditions, with the blue figures glowing overnight (no kidding) and the green ones lasting up to a couple of hours. They charge well.

The molds are the same as you may have bought five years ago, with four points of articulation on the Rhino and a fifth for the Scorpion's tails. The heads pop off, as do the arms, as do the legs as a single unit at the waist. The modernized Battle Beasts-ish figure has the same detail as before, but most glow plastic tend to such out the detail thanks to the properties of glowing PVC. It's a little translucent, a little milky, and the light doesn't reflect off as well as on opaque or painted figures. As such, you're basically buying this figure because it's going to glow in an impressive way.

You may not think you need more of these, but I beg to differ. It feels essential as blue glow that actually glows in blue is exceedingly uncommon, and other than the caveat of charging it a certain way it maintains the high level of quality you usually get from a Glyos-factory glowing figure. Maybe by the time you read this glowing blue figures are the norm, but weirdly the companion Scorpion figure was left in my closet with the lights off and it still had a dim glow a long time later, long after the green ones went out. So if nothing else, it's certainly long-lasting. Good job on this one, teams Plastic Imagination and Glyos Factory!
