Toys / Glyossystem

Go To
Glyos, more broadly referred to as the Glyos System, is a indie toy line/joint system produced by Onell Design.

Story Tropes:

  • Benevolent Precursors: The Delphi have helped some species advance (Armovors)...
  • Eldritch Abomination: The Vilser, an extradimensional species composed mainly of tentacles who almost destroyed the Glyos system twice.
  • Mascot: Pheyden (and later Hades) is the "face" of the Glyos line since he was the first created character.
  • Massive Multiplayer Crossover: The Glyos joint system is used by several other toylines including Banimon, Outer Space Men, and Callgrim.
  • Multiverse: the Glyos system has many "times and dimensions," including Phanost's timeline, the horrible Vilser-infested dimension of Bio Pheyden, Zorennor, and the Stealth Dimension.
  • Neglectful Precursors: The Delphi have also destroyed other species (Granthans).


Toy Tropes:

  • Homage: The folks at Onell love these.
    • The metallic green Gendrones were a reference to Fisher-Price's Adventure People.
    • The new Syclodoc takes visual cues from Mobile Suit Gundam's Zakus and Battlestar Galactica's Cylons. In addition, one variant of the figure was made to unmistakably resemble Shockwave from The Transformers
    • The Henshin wave was a tribute to Takara's Microman and Henshin Cyborg lines.
  • Kibbles and Bits: Some people use every single part of a set in their builds, which sometimes creates weird backpacks or huge guns with pieces sticking out everywhere.
