Saw this on the KOTS Facebook group: There's a Knights of the Slice exhibition currently going on at the Clutter Gallery in New York, and among the items on display are a new line of 4" Glyos compatible action figures based on the Fallout games. It's being made by Just Toys International, appears to be a GameStop exclusive line retailing for $10 per figure, and is up for preorder now:

T-45 Power Armor
T-51 Power Armor
T-60 Power Armor
X-01 Power Armor

Here's an unboxing of the T-51:

Well, dang. Does anyone have better pictures of the box? I'm curious to see if there's any acknowledgement of the connection system and compatibility with Glyos lines...

Jesse posted this on the Facebook group. If the Fallout figures sell well, they're hoping to grow the "Mega Merge" line to cover additional video game licenses.

TheGodBeast tells me that, yes, these figures are a legitimate Onell collaboration. So it's okay to buy as many as you want! :)

At 4 inches, I am curious to see how well these mesh with Glyans, or if they only work with KotS.

[edit]: Oh, and there's a capture of the box back, which I hadn't seen. Clearly a Glyos cousin.

These were actually sneak peeked to us at Dcon this past year by Jesse. Very cool figures in hand, I didn't want to really play with it as it was considered "Top Secret" pending the release info.

I'm looking forward to actually being able to play and build with these when I can get my hands on them.

=)

Seems a major lost opportunity to limit the swapable parts count. One peg at the hip just doesn’t leave a lot for build potential. I’m diggin the design and sculpts, but would like to see a leg that you could articulate at the knee and ankle.

Am I the only one?

The knee would have been nice but I wonder how much stability becomes an issue as the size of the figure increases...

The leg is all one piece but the shoulder pads are separate? O_o

All an elaborate plan to give your Robots Bitfig shoulder pads!

Not sure that the height would really affect stability. Both OSM and Skeleton Warriors were 4” or over and the Villser is nearly 4” they don’t seem to have that hard a time standing. Besides those are some chunky legs. You think with just two more points of articulation (knee and foot) that wouldn’t really affect the overall balance.

Just seems lazy to not add articulation on the legs past the hip. I’m very interested. But if this is a pre-order to see if we are interested in sinking more of our expendable income into another line. If I’m unhappy with the basic design, I think it should be known that as glyos fan I expect build potential and swappability to be a first priority. They look like statues as it stands right now. And I’m curious if they would even look any different than the KOTS I their ability to be posed. It’s a very retro look with limited poseability.

I’m by no means expecting Marvel legends levels of articulation. But would like to give my Villser some leg armor and still have a Villser part or two to mix.

Agreed. I was totally on board untill i saw the part breakdown. May get 1 or 2 (i think they'll be a great place for extra zullen heads.)

Curious if there is a port on the feet bottoms.

I'm not sure the head even uses the glyos peg, looks like it's on a ball joint like the KOTS and Skeleton warriors :spcry:

I'm in for a couple as well, but we actually have a game stop here in Fargo, so I'll probably wait and see if I can get them in store.

Not sure if you know but the neck stems on the SW & KOTS have a Glyos port at the base of the neck. That said, I don't know if these will be the same since the figure breakdown on the box art doesn't show that. Won't know for sure until we can have one in hand. I'll get one for starters to get a feel for it but like most of the 'sister' lines I get at minimum one to try it out.

And the blog has a teaser, too, but of a different sort...
