The Onell Design output is an amazing thing to watch, where you get hundreds - probably thousands now - of great little figures. So many, in fact, I can't get to them in a timely manner despite even having shot many pictures when I got them a long time ago. One such figure is the blue Versirran Pheyden, a lovely metallic swirly figure I've had sitting on the front of one of my Glyos shelves since I got it in 2012. The July 29, 2012 Drop Menu was just crazy with dozens of figures available (including a few old ones) at prices that are pretty amazing. It was in the drop that debuted the Venjorun Armorvor, which was a really exciting day.
This figure was one of many single-color Pheyden figures with painted eyes. That drop had a generous three Pheyden figures plus a fourth in an "extra set" with a torso and a couple of bonus heads. This metallic swirl figure is just gorgeous, and 11 years later (I say with crossed fingers) the plastic still has some elasticity and nothing is crumbling.
As usual, Pheyden has 13 pieces and 12 joints, and this time he's metallic blue. At a distance, it just merely looks pretty. When you get close, it looks like some swirls in a fancy shampoo - you know the ones - with subtle light and dark spots bringing the figure to life. It's not quite like it's crackling with energy, but it does look more lively and depending on your lighting, it changes the personality a bit. It's almost like he's a walking ocean. I remember some of those metallic figures being striking, and picking it up to write this, it still is.
Since this blue figure was part of the Task Force Volkriun wave - green, with green - the plastic didn't match anybody else in the wave. If memory serves nobody else was running these colors except The Outer Space Men, and it closely matches the blue plastic which was painted for Outer Space Men 2.0 Xodiac [FOTD #711] released at about the same time.
There have since been other blue Pheydens. And metallic blue Pheydens. None were an exact match, so this one stands out as being a unique shiny metal dark blue release. Do you need it? Probably not. But I really enjoyed it,
