Gryphtos is the loyal companion of Hyperios Star. He fought in the uprising against the Azure Empire, but was badly crippled - now he is a shadow of his former self, only retaining his most bestial instincts. His fierce loyalty to Hyperios Star remains, and Gryphtos uses his formidable mechanical telekinesis to aid Hyperios as a warrior and faithful mount - and has seized many small drones into his being.
While Gryphtos has a humaniod form, he prefers his animal mode which suits his demeanor much more. Hyperios Star hopes to one day return his trusted ally's mental accuity, and approaching new galactic civilisations for aid is a high priority to the freedom fighter.
PROTERUS - Severed Robot Heads
Torronius (blue) is still up for grabs at his website at: http://ender.storenvy.com/
And Tigris Redemptor will be available soon at my web-store.
The Proterus line of robots were created by the broken machine-god Techius to hunt down militant heretical groups.
These robots were designed with thick body armour, and were made to operate in a wide range of terrestrial environs, including desert, forest, savannah, and urban areas - their one weak spot was the backs of their heads where circuitry protruded. An assassin variant was also created to capitalise on the night time vulnerabilities of the heretics.
A single squad of Proterus robots could lay waste to an entire village of heretics.
Most Proterus robots were destroyed by various heretic cells. Many Proterus heads were decapitated and kept as trophies, and they often display marks made by small arms fire, heat stress fractures, and explosive scorch marks.
Severed heads of Proterus robots now hang proudly from village walls, chieftain huts, and near communal courtyards - a warning that the false gods' reign is coming to an end.
Hyperios Star - leader of the failed up-rising against the evil Azure Emperor. Now on the run and in the search of new allies. Believes that the Azure Empire's slavery of nearby star systems and forced mechanical labour is wrong. Uses his machine TK only to take parts offered freely to add to himself, unlike Cutter Fel who uses his mechTK to take what he wants. Hopes to one day restore freedom to all, but realises he is in an openly hostile world, and is actively hunted by the dangerous Cutter Fel.
Hyperios Star is a modular, Glyos-compatible figure.
Cutter Fel - personal hunter to the evil Azure Emperor, Cutter Fel has been tasked with tracking down and terminating Hyperios Star. Cutter bends all lesser beings he comes across to his will with patience and cruelty. He hopes to personally terminate Hyperios, and dreams of holding the former rebel leader's head to his chest while discharging the plasma plume cannon mounted there.
Cutter Fel is a modular, Glyos-compatible figure.
I call this guy 'The Monotaur'... ;)
Glyos Compatible Robot Heads
Glyos are a modern toy great. They are small figures, about on par with the old Dino Riders, M.A.S.K. and Sky Commanders figures of yester-year in size. What sets them apart from other toys is their modular nature - you can remove and swap almost any part of a Glyos figure to create your own unique toy, providing limitless play.
It's the Glyos system of plugs that allows such modularity. The resurgence of another of my favourite toys of the 80s, Robo Force, has incorporated the Glyos system, and so has the Weaponeers of Monkaa.
The robot heads I've created here are also designed to be used with Glyos compatible toys. I've created them with 80s cartoon robot aesthetics in mind, and each robot head brings a different personality to the toys.
These will be available as a 5-pack, and they are COMING SOON!

1/6th Scale Robot Head Projects
These 1/6th scale robot heads are more elaborate, deluxe versions of the Glyos-compatible sized heads.
They feature more detail (of course), as well as removable, interchangeable face-plates, and removable neck pieces.
The removable face-plates allow you to swap the face of any of these five heads to another helmet. You can choose the look of your robot for ultimate customisation! There are 25 different combinations of face-plates and helmets you can make.
In order make these robot heads as compatible with a wide range of 1/6th scale bodies, they come with a removable neck piece. If your 1/6th body has a ball joint where the neck would be, you can simply use the neck provided. If your 1/6th figure is of a type that already has a neck, then you unplug the neck piece and use the cleverly crafted neck cavity inside the helmet.
These 1/6th robot heads will be made of resin, and are ideal for people who like customising or who want a relatively unique and special figure. Just like their smaller Glyos cousins, these robot heads draw strongly on the looks of 80s cartoon classic robots, and will turn your 1/6th figure into the envy of your collecting friends!
