The Void ...and Designercon 2016!


Galaxxor 011 levitated just above the mirror-like surface of a giant disk floating in the blackness of space. Multi-colored bolts of cosmic energy crackled around him. Before Galaxxor, the towering projection of the Infiniton, one of The Seven Space Gods, loomed. It spoke- 

There is a crisis in the Lazarus Sector, Galaxxor. Your brothers, 002 and 005, are currently locked in battles on two fronts. It is the intention of Lord Gorgax to bolster his forces there. As I speak, the Space Barbarian Skalldron has taken Gorgax's greatest ship, The Void, and filled it with soldiers from The Evil Mutant Legion. They are headed directly for The Lazarus Sector in hope of turning the tide of the conflict, and crushing your brothers. It is up to you, Galaxxor 011, to intercept The Void, and eliminate this threat. 

   
The Void sliced through the swirling cosmic expanse of space. It was a massive longship built of a material so black, that it only registered as the total absence of light. In its control room, Skalldron gathered a group of 13 of his most elite warriors. Facing away from them, he looked upon a sprawling holoscreen. Amid clusters of arcane data readings was the image of Cerberus, a moon-sized pyramidal space fortress. Skalldron turned to face his men, steam rising from the joints in his armor. From the empty blackness of his helm, an eerie yellow glow projected from his cybernetic eyes. 

Prepare your troops, Generals. We reach The Lazarus Sector in four cycles! 

Once again this year, I have the honor of attending Designercon (Nov 19th and 20th in Pasadena, CA) as an exhibitor. I'll be at booth #1001 with my friends and fellow Glyosians The Godbeast, Mystical Warriors of the Ring and Bio Masters. I'll be bringing along what little stock I have left of Galaxxor 001/Thanyr, Gorgax/Roxxalag and Galaxxor 007/Infernicus. I will also be debuting a brand new figure, one which is heavily inspired by one of my all time favorite properties, Galaxxor 011/Skalldron. As with the other Glyos-compatible Galaxxor vinyl figures, Galaxxor 011/Skalldron will come with both the dome and the horned head.
Galaxxor 011/Skalldron will be $30 each and will debut at the con. Leftovers will be available on galaxxor.com following the show.
Looking forward to seeing you at Dcon!

The Battle Begins- 08.22.16 at 8pm Central


It has been 100 years since the great cosmic robot hero, Galaxxor, was killed.
Slain by the dreaded Lord Gorgax with a planet sized weapon known as The Ultimate Nullifier Cannon, the physical being of our robot hero was splintered into 999 shards, each flung to the far reaches of the pocket dimension known as The Alpha. Almost immediately, a glowing green shell formed around the home of The Seven Space Gods, the crystalline planet, Alpha Primarus.
Over the past 100 years, Gorgax, his elite cadre of Cyborg Space Barbarian henchmen, and their Evil Mutant Legion has wreaked havoc upon the countless worlds of The Alpha. Some planets have held strong, but others have fallen to darkness and chaos.
But there is hope.
The neon shell that has surrounded Alpha Primarus has disappeared, and brilliant explosions of cosmic power are appearing at random locations, throughout The Alpha. In places like the giant blue sun, Anubis 5, and the hive world known as "Dragon City", new Galaxxors are appearing.
On 08.22.16, the battle begins!

It's been a long road to the full realization of this first batch of fully painted Galaxxor figures, from Galaxxor 001 and 007 to that bad, bad dude Gorgax, I'm truly unable to express just how excited I am about how nicely these figures came out. Even the "alt" characters, the Cyborg Space Barbarians Thanyr and Infernicus, and that mysterious entity known as "Roxxalag" blow my mind every time I pick them up and play around with them.
Hopefully, these guys are indicators to you of all of the fun and weirdness that we have in store for the future. It's going to be a crazy ride. Thanks for coming along with me!

The Cosmic Supernova- 05.25.16 at 8pm Central


In a lost dimension, light years from our world, super-powered cosmic robots do battle with Cyborg Space Barbarians for the fate of the universe! And soon, their power will be in your hands!

At the heart of the cataclysmic event known as The Cosmic Supernova, amidst the swirling energies of The Alpha dimension and the The Omega dimension, Galaxxor and Gorgax are locked in combat. Glowing cosmic green, the outcome of their conflict will alter The Galaxxorverse's timeline forever! It is an epic battle at the end of all things, and sets the cosmic wheels in motion for the beginning of an even more epic saga...

I still have a very vivid memory of being very young, being surrounded by my old MOTU figures, and my mother saying to my grandmother, "Someday, he's going to make toys."
It's been a long journey to this point. With the help of some humblingly talented collaborators, I've been creating Galaxxor figures, in the form of resin and custom toys for many years. And now, we're about to start a new chapter of the Galaxxor story with full production, Glyos-compatible vinyl action figures!

To adequately express how excited I am to be able to bring you production Galaxxor figures would be impossible. As would it be to express just how grateful for the help and guidance of Marty Hansen, Matt Doughty and True Cast Studio throughout this journey. I'm extremely lucky to have had some of the greatest minds in modern toymaking help me to bring you a Galaxxor that is far beyond what I had ever dreamed it could be.

We're going to kick things off 05.25.16 at 8pm Central at galaxxor.com with Cosmic Supernova Galaxxor/Gorgax-

COSMIC SUPERNOVA GALAXXOR/GORGAX: $28 each, Limit 2 per order Produced in a pearlescent neon green vinyl, these 5.5" figures feature Glyos vinyl-compatible articulation at the head, shoulders and chest/waist. They sport purple eyes and black detail lining on the Gorgax head. Each figure comes with both the dome(Galaxxor) head and the horned(Gorgax/Cyber Space Barbarian) head. 


It's also worth noting that, for this batch, a bit of heat and squeezing to the top of the chest piece will be required to swap out the domed head, once it's removed. I can't wait to get these into everyone's hands! And this is just the beginning.

I look forward to bringing you cosmic robotic weirdness for years to come. Thank you to everyone for your support of my little project. It means more to me than you'll ever know.
