A Path to the Gate Between Worlds- Enter the Zyldrani



Originating from a time eons prior to the existence of the known Galaxxorverse, the Zyldrani are an ancient bio-mechanical race of inter-dimensional beings who have mastered the ability to travel between worlds. Now in the waning stages of their once great civilization, the Zyldrani serve as watchers who maintain balance between dimensions. Any being possessing the ability to control or manipulate the long forgotten paths and gates of The Zyldrani Empire would immediately become a threat to inter-dimensional balance. It is for this reason that the existing Zyldrani Seers remain vigilant in their quest to maintain balance and keep their ancient secrets hidden from malevolent forces.
Youngest among the Zyldrani Seers is Xul-Kulkan, known throughout the dimensions as "Astrokaizer". Astrokaizer's ambitious nature and willingness to interact with other races has made him a legendary figure in the dimension known as The Alpha. When Azralok and his cabal of Space wizards manipulated one of the lost Zyldrani gates into a path directly into The Omega, Astrokaizer had to make his presence known...

Galaxxor 008 levitated in a lotus position, just above the needle-shaped space station known as "Zaraggana". In the scrying portal before him, the events of the battle on the space station Cerberus played out before him in an infinity loop. He watched as three of his brothers were joined by the being known as Astrokaizer in battle against the Space Barbarian Azralok and his 13 Space Wizard henchmen. Galaxxor 008 looked on as the pyramidal space fortress shuddered and crumbled and Azralok and his Space Wizards retreated into The Cerberus Gate.
The scrying portal suddenly began to crackle with cosmic instability, and gradually expanded into a swirling gate. At its center appeared Astrokaizer.
Galaxxor 008, I am Xul-Kulkan. I have come to warn you that your enemies have now at their disposal ancient cosmic magiks far beyond anything you have ever known. I ask you for your help in hunting these foul beings down and maintaining inter-dimensional balance..."

With the introduction of the Zyldrani Seer head type, we now see the beginnings of my plan to make the Galaxxor form into an expandable platform, suitable for an ongoing collection of a wide range of characters and races. My good friend, Jarrod, of Wednesday Toys really knocked it out of the park with the digital sculpting on my new head design and I'm absolutely honored to add his work to the official production Galaxxor mix. I'm still amazed at how he took the concept and was able to make it blend so seamlessly into the existing Galaxxor aesthetic. And stay tuned! There's even more exciting stuff from Jarrod and me, just around the corner!
I really think of the Astrokaizer drop as the beginning of "Phase 2" for production Galaxxor, and I couldn't be more excited to announce that Astrokaizer/Galaxxor 008 will be available for purchase on 04.30.17 at 8pm Central from galaxxor.com.
As with the other Glyos-compatible Galaxxor vinyl figures, Astrokaizer/Galaxxor 008 will come with both the Zyldrani Seer head and the dome head, for both display/character options. They will be $30 each.
Hopefully, this latest offering is starting to give you a taste of where I'm headed with this project. The sky is the limit! As always, I'm honored that you've decided to come along with me on this crazy cosmic ride!

The Crisis in The Lazarus Sector- The Cerberus Gate



At the heart of the pyramidal space fortress Cerberus, an ancient Zyldrani inter-dimensional gate rumbled under the influence of a dark ritual. Deep in concentration, the Cyborg Space Barbarian Azralok and his cadre of thirteen Space Wizards stood at equidistant points around the perimeter of the crackling reality chasm. Undulating tentacles of unreality licked at the oily air of Cerberus's inner sanctum as a flickering hologram of Lord Gorgax oversaw the ceremony.
With a grinding mechanical groan, the entirety of Cerberus shuddered, and warning klaxons began to echo throughout the fortress. Azralok looked away towards the blinking hologram of Gorgax.
"Don't stop now, you fools!" it growled, "The ritual has begun! We must harness the full power of The Omega!"

With the fortress's defensive barriers dropped, Galaxxor 005 rocketed through the labyrinthine hallways of Cerberus. The influence of The Omega had spread throughout the entirety of the bio-mechanical pyramidal structure. Hallways twisted and warped. Ceilings became floors. Bulkhead doors opened into nothingness. Time stretched. Time snapped. Had he been in Cerebrus for hours? Days? Years?
Three massive "thuds" echoed behind him, and Galaxxor 005 turned to see Galaxxor 002, Galaxxor 011, and a warrior in violet armor with a conical helm. With a deep, vibrating hum, crackles of blackness filled the air around them. Alien energies aligned and focused upon the wall before them, melting a gaping hole into the inner sanctum of Cerberus.
"This ends now!" The violet armored warrior roared.

I'm super stoked to announce that my latest production vinyl figure, Galaxxor 005/Azralok will be available for purchase on 03.15.17 at 8pm Central from galaxxor.com.
As with the other Glyos-compatible Galaxxor vinyl figures, Galaxxor 005/Azralok will come with both the horned head and the dome head, for both display/character options. They will be $30 each.
As always, sincerest thanks for all of your continued support. I'm always floored and humbled that so many of you want to join me on this crazy journey!

So, what's the deal with that purple dude?

Space Wizards?

Zyldrani?

The Crisis in The Lazarus Sector Continues- The Scimitar


Galaxxor 002 rocketed towards the planet Txoltep. To his right, he saw an ebony behemoth of a ship, tumbling through space, out of control, being torn apart by violent explosions. To his left, he saw the moon-sized pyramidal space fortress known as Cerberus. It rippled with an inter-dimensional unnatural energy that sickened Galaxxor 002's circuits to the core. As he entered Txoltep's arid atmosphere, the interior of his dome began to crackle with cosmic energy. The voices of The Seven Space Gods spoke to him in choral unison...

Galaxxor, we are uploading to you the coordinates of the base known as The Scimitar. It is controlled by the Cyborg Space Barbarian Nebularr and his mutant henchmen. The Scimitar houses the control system for the defenses of Cerberus. You must enter The Scimitar, defeat Nebularr and his followers, and disable Cerberus's defenses. The fate of The Lazarus Sector hangs in the balance!

The expanse of Txoltep spread out below Galaxxor 002. It was a shimmering desert wasteland framed by crystalline mountain ranges. Crackling lightning storms shredded the dark purple of Txoltep's skies. In the distance, Galaxxor 002 saw a great tower, reaching skyward. The bio-mechanical construct of some ancient mad architect, the twisted tower flared towards the top, like a nightmarish curved blade. From its tip, swirling black energies swirled upward into space.
The iridescent white sand of Txoltep exploded in a glittering cloud as Galaxxor 002 landed before the entrance of The Scimitar. Almost immediately, a great door opened, and a horde of mutant warriors walked out. Towering, multi-limbed insectoid monstrosities charged towards Galaxxor 002.
Hearing a great "THUD!", Galaxxor 002 looked back to see that Galaxxor 011 had landed behind him. Nodding to one another in recognition, the two turned toward the monstrosities and prepared for battle...



The darkness of the control room of The Scimitar was lit only by the unearthly glow of arcane machines and a central holoscreen. Surrounded by his insectoid henchmen, Nebularr looked on as the holoscreen displayed the Cyborg Space Barbarian Azralok and his cabal of Space Wizards . In the core of Cerberus, they levitated above a rift in the very fabric of reality. Psychic energy burst forth from their eyes as beasts from beyond this plane shuddered in and out of form.
Suddenly, the warning klaxons of The Scimitar sounded. 
His fortress was under attack!

I'm extremely excited to announce that my latest production vinyl figure, Galaxxor 002/Nebularr will be available for purchase on 01.25.17 at 8pm Central from galaxxor.com.
As with the other Glyos-compatible Galaxxor vinyl figures, Galaxxor 002/Nebularr will come with both the horned head and the dome head, for both display/character options. They will be $30 each.
Sincerest thanks for your continued support. Without it, Galaxxor wouldn't be what it is. There are some incredibly exciting things in the works. So stay tuned!

And what the hell is going on on Cerberus?!?!?
