Underworld Edition Mordles by Toyfinity

Well I guess I should review these little shits. These are Mordles and they're brought to you by Toyfinity. You know, those roboforce guys. The mordles were little creatures from an obscure 80's toy line called Rocks and Bugs and Things. They're cute, little, unarticulated monsters that I had to check out. This is the Underworld Edition set. Each set contains 10 unique mordles. Many sets are still available on the website and you can check out all the colors. I got these with the glow in the dark set for some contrast. For about $10, you get a small bag like below

Here is the back of the card.

And here they are all crammed into their bag.

Here they are unleashed.

Starting off, this glum little guy is Serikachen. He looks pretty sad or just doesn't appear to have much of an opinion of you. Either that or he has to poop.

This grinning little joker is the Zerak. That's Zerak, not Zarak. He's probably one of my favorites. He's also been blown up into a larger version, which I'll look at some day.

This is Murlun. He seems very fed up with things. His toenail paint apps are on the back as you can see in the picture below.

This is Erixmes. He appears to be the tallest of the group. Oh he's so growly.

Next is Meh, I mean Caborux. He seems indifferent. Considering he was just another victim of being eaten by rocks or bugs (or things?) he looks like he just wants to get it over with.

Ok, this guy is my favorite. This is Grynt and he has better things to do than talk to you. He seems very unhappy with the state of things and could go for a few drinks.

 photo 7aa61d64-a45a-466e-bcae-d709e8f5de99_zpsbc40de48.jpg

Here we have Talmesca, who can't control his pent up teenage angst.

This is Rellun. He partied WAY too hard last night.

This chunky little guy is Vlain.

 photo ce1cbceb-f420-4203-957a-7ccc9f043cff_zpsb0b4c8d3.jpg

This is Yorzwurl, who I totally remembered to take a picture of. I swear.

 photo 525582ca-f8bf-4c46-93f4-661332944d6c_zps916b65e5.jpg

Here they are with a traveler.

 photo 10dae046-1c0c-41d8-a90d-82d7b56529a6_zps4326f58c.jpg

But they look so friendly.

 photo 1fedf739-d9d3-4a36-a546-c034c4046c8a_zps03c1c935.jpg

The gang is just shorter than a Crayboth.

They're around the same height as a Mini Mushi.

You talkin' to me?

 photo f0eb3fd7-9f55-483c-9589-ec728ea4fcf7_zps72f0ce9d.jpg

Only one QC issue in the whole batch. I had one come out of the bag with his eye messed up.

Let me whisper sweet things in your ear.

Its dangerous to go alone. Here, take this!

For $10, these guys are fun. I look at them as great throw in pieces to go with the larger Mordles or Roboforce when they drop. Its worth it to pick up a set of these little dudes.

Kabuto Mushi Standard from THEGODBEAST

I've been following the development of the Kabuto Mushi for a while. 2014 hit and now here they are! Once these guys got here, I was really surprised by how many pieces each figure was composed of. The first production release consisted of a clear, reverse (mainly metallic green with metallic brown highlights), pearlescent red, and the standard version, which you'll see here.

Here he is in all his glory.

The brown has some swirls in it and it really goes well with the color.

Put 'em up

The extra head can sit on the back as a backpack, much like the armorvor's weapon.

Heroic Kabuto

Stand off with an Armorvor. He's slightly bigger than an Armorvor.

 photo f02388ce-41a2-433c-b75d-ebdaf3e56a57_zps0921b85e.jpg

And here he is with some other figures. He's got some good height.

There are SO many ways to assemble this guy. Here is one I fumbled together while taking pictures.

 photo 5b8cd9e0-5fa5-4a8e-a5bd-1d5626f4104d_zps585ae183.jpg

This is one of the builds THEGODBEAST had posted prior to the release. I keep the standard in this configuration. I love this one a lot.

Awe hugs. Here he is with one of the mini-mushi's that were also released the same night. They're actually still in stock at the time of writing this.

Obviously this is glyo's compatible. Oh man did this guy bring something new to the mix.

Make my day

oooooh those colors

Ah crap.

The alternate head

Spin it around and its got a slightly different look.

Until next time....
