Just a few short months ago, Hordak: The Evil Ruler of Despondos joined us as we reviewed Spy Monkey Creations' factory-constructed set of interchangeable weapons in the very Horde-ish "Bloodlust" color scheme.

You know what we’re seriously lacking? More t-shirts with toys on ‘em, that’s what! Thankfully, companies like Fistful Apparel are filling that void in our life with clothing like this new design featuring Pheyaos, one of our favorite designer vinyl toys! This design is made in collaboration with Real X Head/Onell Design, who make the highly-addicting Glyos -- interchangeable toys that steal lots of our time with their customizable-tomfoolery. The company also has many other shirts that would be of interest to the geek community, including such gems as “Monster Slaughter” which features an image of a luchadore hacking up the classic monster archetypes with a machete. Yes, a machete!

Here’s all the info on the Pheyaos Man shirt straight from the folks over at Fistful Apparel:

Onell Design’s Glyos series of figures has received a rabid following from toy customizers and collectors alike. With its interesting character designs, Passcode 8-bit videos, and Gendrome Chronicles webcomic --  Glyos is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the toy world. The figures are unique in that they can be broken down to the tiniest component. This means that you can effectively create any kind of design and monstrosity your twisted little mind can imagine!

2010 has been a banner year for toys. Thanks to games, movies, comics, and all-around nostalgia; toy companies have given their all to release fantastic pieces of plastic greatness. We, here at MTV Geek, have compiled a list of 10 toys that truly outshone their competition this year.

10. Glyos RIG (Onell Design)

Onell Design has hit onto something amazing with their Glyos series of customizable figures. This year, Onell released a new component to the line with the addition of the RIG. It’s very much in the vein of popular designer-vinyl toys, yet is so much more. With the simple positioning of the arms, you can change the RIG from a mech-like fighting machine into a space-worthy dogfighter. The imagination-inducing factor is what really helps set the RIG apart from other toys on the market, and what helps push it onto this list. The first release of the RIG sold out ridiculously fast; but be on the lookout for more of these wonderfully toys to be released in various colors and paint schemes in the future. Read More...
