Here's hoping so. It's been a long wait.

Anything involving the Delphi would be amazing to see. The figure and story possibilities are nearly limitless - An virtually unexplored race, new units, new build parts, potential story characters. Not to mention the lore that could be added to the existing Universe. The war between the Delphi and the Voss, the discovery of Black Core technology, this is all prime territory for future expansion.

Supposedly Matt's working on an extra set for the Villser mold that would make it into another character, the suspicion is that it'll be the Delphi. Hopefully that project is ready to go soon.

Hopefully soon. I think people are tired of waiting.

I would be ecstatic about such a development! But, we were told the Delphi was coming way back in 2012 and the swing joints were supposed to be part of the equation. We did get the swing joints in 2013, but never any more talk or development in regards to the Delphi. Trust me, I'm hoping like heck that the Villser extra set will bring us our first sniff of production Delphi, but I'm not holding my breath.

I'm not crazy over the Villser mold. The anatomy is just off in my opinion. I don't like it how the calves are a lot bigger than the thighs. Also the elbows just seem really wierd to me.

I wonder if the extra set would tweak these, maybe adding some options for swing-like elbows and knees. I will say, however, that the Villser sculpt as-is practically begs to be built with, at a larger scale than we're used to, and the Delphi do tower over Travelers...

Interesting that you don't like thick calves, pretty much a similar ratio exists on all Travelers. Up until the Axis joints/Swing Joints and Glyarmor legs came out that is...maybe the upgrade will give some girth to those Villser thighs :lol:

As for the Elbows I know what you mean there, I wish they'd have been two parts instead of one, like I thought initially, however that's what the axis joints are good for.

Truth Kranix, the double build that Matt showed off with the Xycoss Villser was pretty fun to put togther. Also mixing a Villser with 2x Axis Joints and the left over parts from the Argenesis pack, I ended up with a pretty sweet Insect like build, I'll try and post up pics later tonight.

I know I haven't been waiting as long as many of you on this board, but I pray to Santa-Jesus-God every night that the Delphi will return.

A Delphi and Armored Delphi head is all I ask, then I can die happy.

Agreed, I'm a noob to Glyos, so the only chance Ive had of getting a Delphi head was on ebay, for $$$.

A brand new sculpt would be cool but honestly, I like the idea of just building one from Phase arms/Buildman and traveler parts, and adding the head like a cherry on top!

If Matt is truly working on a new Extra set, it would be awesome if it were a set of all four Delphi heads w/ a new torso.

=)

On second thought, perhaps we aren't thinking linear enough on this. With the coming of the Villser we need to look back to whom created them...it wasn't the Delphi, it was...THE VOSS.

Sad to say it, because I think we all want the Delphi, but we may be getting yet another villain. To me it would make more sense that the Voss would be an upgrade with an extra set added to the current Villser mold. Also they'd be pretty desperate get their creation under control after they escaped last summer. And the pics posted up on Onell's blog-if cannon- do look an awful lot like a representation of Nemica, where the original Villser virus broke out. Who better to spark up a deal with the enemy of the Delphi than Phanost, who swore to make all pay. :pheyR: ... ... :phanost:

I hope we get both! Could be a Voss upgrade, with the bonus Delphi head on the same sprue...that would be truly scrumptious!!!
