For whatever reason these weren't on my radar at all, but seeing them now I absolutely have to get some! They look awesome! I really like that they are being produced at the glyos factory. Those guys consistently produce quality toys.
Really nice work all around to everyone involved! Hope these are a success!

I just sent in the final mechanicals (line art with color specifications) for the paint apps.

A HUGE thanks to ericnilla for hammering the line art out this week!!!

We'll be releasing a painted set as well as some unpainted figures. Just waiting on final pricing so I can put in the full order this weekend.

So excited! :woot:

Glad to help and can't wait to see these guys in production.

 

I posted a pic of the test shot figures on instagram and got a lot of interest in them. People are gonna flip for them!

It's beyond awesome to see where this line came from, to where it is now. I'm not a BB collector, but I'll have to get a set or two of these - one of which I'll paint up. I love the Rhino and I can't wait to see what the gorilla/ape looks like.

Congrats on getting these out, speaking from personal experience its a feeling I am not sure can be explained :)

That weapons pack mold idea sounds great, would be cool if the weapons worked with the old Battle Beasts but that might not be possible given their short size (might be out of scale for them)

Huzzah! Late to the party but I'm here!

 

These buggers look awesome! Count me in! Sorry I missed the original Kickstarter drive but I'll support the online sales.

 

A weapons pack sounds great too! What is the size of that hand grip?

I'm stoked that these are finally getting out there, homie. 

Hopefully, we can get a few acknowledgements from the folks that insisted that you were just giving them the piss, when the first factory fell through.

It's a little smaller than a Glyos peg, but since it is bendable PVC, it can vary.

They were on the tomato and pepper plants. I wonder if they were attempting #riseofthesalsa :lol:

Looks like these Rise beasts are considerably smaller than Armorvors. They look really cool though. I want a big, bad ass vulture.

Yep. The target size for the line is 60mm and the figures scale in around that. The scorpion is 59mm and the Rhino is 62mm I believe.

They are eye to eye with the 'vor, but they are normal proportioned which makes them look much smaller.

And seeing as how they're not from the same universe, (can that term even be applied here?), it doesn't really matter. I'm actually loving their size, personally. I also like love the BB-style articulation.

I can't wait to see some painted products, weapons, and more figures down the road.

I'm not even kidding when I say that this is the first spot I check when I log on these days.

I’ve put up a set of pre-production prototypes on eBay. Opening bid of $9.99 each. If you are interested, please have a look:

Rhino - http://bit.ly/1q4IUBg

Scorpion - http://bit.ly/1s43NrT

These are just like the prototypes that we originally sent to the factory to make the steel molds. Hand cast in resin, fully jointed, except that these also have a brown wash to bring out the details. If you are looking for a very unique piece for your collection, this is it!
