This is another good one. The Noboto Diversus Mutant from 2018 matches the Onell Design Outer Space Men Orbitron Diversus [FOTD #1,470] from 2016, and the colors seem like a near-perfect match. It's pretty amazing, and as far as I know these are only three Glyos figures to have this exact coloring - the other being a Crayboth, who missed photo day. I'd love to see another figure or two to match these guys some day, particularly a traveler with a grooved head. The brain pattern just looks amazing, even when it's a tampo like on the Diversus Mutant made with the Noboto/Quallerran mold.
It's pretty amazing how the colors translate to a different body type. The bony claw colors work on the fingers and shoes. The brain is gone, but you can print one on the head. There are plenty of surfaces for red paint and highlights, giving you a similar-but-different take on This Island Earth's famous monster. The default build is great - Noboto's head, a red ring belt, and as packaged, no backpack.
The 2 1/2-inch figure has a lot of articulation, including swivels at the shoulders, wrists, and biceps so you can get some pretty nifty lateral arm poses. The legs also have knee swivels as well as ankle joints, you can easily swap parts or fudge the limbs in vehicles from other manufacturers.
The alternate head doesn't quite look like the Metaluna Mutant - there's no brain, but it still has a nifty face mask element - and it's cool. The red eyes pop out nicely, giving the figure a different spin without seeming too out of character. It's not as ornate as the main head, but that's understandable - there's a lot going on there. He's still got a nifty quasi-mustache that looks pretty superb.
I don't see these come up for sale much, but the unique paint job and fun brain stamp on the head make this a worthwhile figure to buy, if you can find it. I don't see any on eBay as of my writing this, and as they're typically produced in the very low hundreds you may not see a lot for sale. And that's unfortunate, you'd probably enjoy this one a lot if you get a kick out of robots cosplaying as aliens. I'd recommend it to you if you have the means, even if you have other Noboto or Quallerran figures. Sometimes coming up with the right colors makes everything even better, and this is definitely one of the very best colorways I've seen on this mold.
