TGIF! This Glyos Is Friday! I don't know if I can keep up this pace forever, but I have so many unposted reviews with thousands of photographs sitting on my hard drive - I may as well get off my duff and write a few extra reviews, even if they're short. One of the things that is really great about Onell Design toys are that you probably get a freebie with every order. Maybe it will be bonus accessories, or a nice note, but sometimes - quite often, lately - it's a whole friggin' figure at no extra cost, which certainly cushions the blow of whatever shipping charges are levied at you. Back in April of 2013, I got this then-new cherry flavored figure.
The Crayboth Infection is in a clear red color, but it was never actually announced - you just opened your order from The Reydurran Divide wave and you might have received one. It's nothing special, and that's why I liked it - I always wanted to get eight of the little guys in Crayola crayon colors, and the pictures you see here were taken wheN I was trying it out way back in April and May of 2013.
I assume these were cheap to make, given the lack of paint, but they're cute. The clear red guy shows up nicely and you can pop it apart at the joints. You can swivel the arms and legs, or you can dismember him. That's quite the action feature. If you have never purchased an Onell Design Crayboth figure, they're about the size of your average M.U.S.C.L.E. or similar mini-figure, and they're pretty great. I have far too many of them, but not all of them. (It was a goal at one point - but there are far too many of them. And I've got a lot of 'em - it's overwhelming! But they're cool.
They're still pretty cheap figures, the latest releases were a mere $6.00 a pop from the December release. (That wave included a pinkish red unpainted Crayboth as a bonus - I'll need to shoot him soon too.) I wouldn't recommend you necessarily track down this Cray figure given just how many options there are that may be cheaper and easier to get. But I absolutely love the red color, and there have been many similar-yet-different clear reds and pinks over the years. Track them down if you dare - some lucky devil probably has a complete set of these, and I am both jealous and exhausted thinking about them. Even at their now slightly-higher prices, other than Dollar Tree's Final Faction figures, the Crayboth are still some of the cheapest articulated action figures on the market today. (give or taken an Imaginext or Playmobil on a good day.)
To Onell Design's Matt Doughty if you're reading - It's none of my business but I would absolutely love to see a second "little guy" mold some day if you're ever so inclined. A tiny robot would be stellar but this little guy has proven so versatile over the years that it would be a delight to see another entry in this smaller-size figure.
