Zartep the Despoiler Unleashes the Power of the Omega Matrix

In the Grand Hall of the Central Pyramid of the Obsidian Desert of Duat, Zartep the Despoiler sat upon a throne of ripping blue energy as he eyed The Omega Matrix. At the center of the hall, the ancient artifact sat, crackling and undulating with sparks of black cosmic energy. Swarms of Petraz Pattern Crayboth guided Zarteps followers towards the Omega Matrix. One at a time, each of the members of the Scarabite Legion were brought before the artifact. As its energies focused upon each follower, the crackling black energy engulfed them, violently mutating them into a darker, more twisted version of their previous selves.

A holographic projection of the Space Wizard Abrax materialized before Zartep's throne and assumed a kneeling position.

Reconstruction of Cerebus continues as planned, my lord. And The Volodyan Choir continue to perform the ceremony to generate the portal for your legion's arrival. 

Zartep nodded in acknowledgement and rose to his feet.

Excellent. The fool Gorgax will be caught completely unaware...

Reaching his massive gauntleted fist outwards, Zartep placed his hand directly upon The Omega Matrix. The cavernous great hall began to distort with violent cosmic pops and spasms, expanding and contracting in an unsteady arcane rhythm. With his cyclopic eye fixed upon the artifact, Zartep slowly pressed his fingers into The Omega Matrix, causing the hall to overflow with crackling black energy, cosmic discord and the squealing sound of grinding metal.

And then silence.

A hideously transformed Zartep began to make his way towards the exit of the pyramid, his newly transformed followers following behind him in formation.

A swirling portal had formed in the distance and Zartep the Despolier lead his newly mutated Scarabite Legion towards it. The glass like surface of the only desert around them began to crack and shatter. And ghastly skull faced legionaries clawed their way through the planer's surface, falling into formation alongside the legion.

But in the distance, a figure of pure blackness appeared...

I'm extremely excited to announce a new production vinyl Galaxxor drop this Wednesday 11.11.20 at 8pm Central in the Galaxxor online store. This one is particularly exciting, as it involves a fan favorite character, Zartep, in a new Reverse Scarabite color way. Zartep's alt head is the premier fully painted release of the Samedian Trooper skull head (digitally sculpted by the mighty BigManToys!). This figure will include both heads, will come in bag and header packaging, and will be $40 each.

But wait, there's more! People have most certainly been asking for another DIY release of the base Galaxxor figure, and I always liked the way that he looks in solid matte black, so we're also going to also be releasing a run of Void Projection Galaxxors. Ideal for you customizers out there or those of you who just want to display the Galaxxor shape as a simple sculptural piece. They will be $30 each.

Bit props go out to my main man Cappyspace. This particular drop is a collaborative with him. Cappy will be unleashing his own offerings at the same time as my drop in his online shop and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised if you're a fan of color coordination. Please be sure to swing by his shop as well!

The Destruction of Alpha Primarus

A glowing yellow electronic wave pulsed across Abrax the Void Stalker's cyclopic eye as he surveyed the crystalline landscape of Alpha Primarus. In every direction, a seemingly infinite network of geometrically arranged needle-like translucent blue towers reached upwards towards a swirling violet sky. Palm upwards, Abrax reached out with his massive, gauntleted right hard. As his fingers began to curl inwards, the towers before him began to shudder and squeal. Suddelny, Abrax slammed his hand into a fist, and the towers exploded into iridescent powder.

Behind him, his cabal of wizard thralls, The Volodian Choir began screeching a discordant harmony. A green glow surrounded Abrax as he began to levitate above the planet's crystalline surface. With a swipe of his left hand, a swath of cosmic destruction leveled the entirety of the ancient edifices before him.
Turning in midair to face The Volodian Choir, Abrax spoke-

"Transmit to the dog, Gorgax, and tell him that he shall soon have his prize. Tonight, my children, we kill The Gods!"

Thirteen disc shaped scrying mirrors orbited the throne of the Space God Chronodar in arcane formation as he searched the myriad destinies. Each one darkness. Each destiny, an infinite void. His mirror chrome visage showed no reaction as he processed the fates. In a sense, it amused him. Something he had not experienced in ages. The end of a cycle.
Suddenly, a silent supernova filled the room with a blinding white light. Each scrying disc shattered and dropped to the floor. When the flash cleared, a Zyldrani Seer knelt on the floor before Chronodar.
Chronodar spoke- "Skypanzer X. You seek to alter the flow of the rivers of fate?"
Skypanzer X rose to his feet,  flashed a grin, and winked at Chronodar.

"You stay here, big guy. I've got this one."

Abrax The Void Stalker/Skypanzer Xwill be available for purchase on 10.15.19 at 8pm Central from galaxxor.com. As with the other Glyos-compatible Galaxxor vinyl figures, Abrax The Void Stalker/Skypanzer X will come with both the Space Wizard (double sided) and the Zyldrani Seer head, for a total of three  display/character options. They will be $35 each.

The Battle for X-312 11.08.18

Following the destruction of the space fortress Cerberus, dimensional rifts began to appear throughout the known universe. The area sin space  near these rifts became subject to anomalies of all types, from temporal shifts to cosmic reversals, to the appearance of entities from opposing dimensional existences. One such place was the crumbling hive planet on  The Western Systemic Belt, X-312. A crackling dimensional gate burst into being on the twisted technological world, and from it appeared the heroic Space Wizard, Raeyor-Ca, and with him, his mighty Knights of Ca.

But following them through the portal was the evil Dark Zyldrani Seer, Mach Jetter! Quickly utilizing his demigod-like powers to corrupt the ancient mechanical landscape of X-312 into a biomechanial monstrosity under his control, Mach Jetter launched a campaign of terror and destruction against Raeyor-Ca and his Knights of Ca!

Tributes/homages are always a fun undertaking for me. The primary reason for why I've gotten to this place is my love of those old iconic characters of the past. It's a lineage of creative dna that informs so much of what I do and inspires me to continue creating. Often, those inspirations are buried deep in the designs that I release, or mixed up with so many other inspirations that the end result isn't necessarily recognizable as a direct descendant of any particular thing. Other times, it's fun to say "screw it" and do a proper tip of the hat to a character or two that are near and dear to my heart. This drop is one of those times.
Utilizing the Galaxxor form to create different color ways and characters never ceases to entertain me. But I shouldn't get to have all of the fun...

Canonically, there are 999 Galaxxors. I'm not sure how many I've actually created. 20? 25? The original intention was always to involve you. The concept was to allow Galaxxor's form and universe be a platform in which you could create characters of your own. And with tonight's drop. That vision starts to become a reality!

Along with tonight's drop, I will have a full production wave of blank DIY white vinyl Galaxxors (dome head only) for $20 each. I cannot wait to see what all of you create! 

Raeyor-Ca\Mach Jetter will be available for purchase on 11.08.18 at 8pm Central from galaxxor.com. As with the other Glyos-compatible Galaxxor vinyl figures, Raeyor-Ca\Mach Jetter will come with both the Space Wizard (double sided) and the Zyldrani Seer head, for a total of three  display/character options. They will be $30 each.
