I got a review of the weaponeers of Monkaa up with 40+ pics of them. These things ROCK!!!
WOW! I love these little guys, they looks like Battle Beasts with a Transformers aesthetic!
Also the artwork is terrific!
I hope the next series has a female member!!

Alexx has a blog?! Come on in and check out Toys and Tomfoolery! You won't regret it...until the next morning.
These are rad! I want to see someone put a lot of them together ala giant japanese robot to get something mega gnarly.
To answer your question Hadley I plan on doing a Weaponeers of Monkaa revisited feature sometime this week or next week depending on what my review sched looks like wqith pictures of some more motuc stuff and armory builds and whatnot I will post a link here for sure, but keep checking DoomKick if you cant wait. Also next week is "The Power of Grayskull Week" over at DK we will be doing MOTUC related reviews all week!
Thanks man! Sounds like I need to keep DoomKick on my radar!
Well I may be a little biased on that front, but yes yes you should
The new close combat stuff looks great. Too bad it's not available in black, I would have loved to get a set for Trap Jaw.
Which of the colorways will work best with Cy-Chop?
Awesome sticker included!
Hey all - I started a new thread just for Weaponeers of Monkaa in the Other Forum since I figured they deserved their own thread as they are a new property.
As for the new Close Combat sets, they ad some nice options to mix in with the other weapons sets. There are some very cool pieces in them.
Just placed my order for the new armory pieces. Looking forward to them!
I could only order those sets, due to the very high shipping. Otherwise I would have bought more product (not enough to justify a second order, though).
Not really into the Weaponers, just their weapons. I already own almost all the new weapon sets and the Weaponer's add ons for $5 a set at Power Con looked delicious. The scythe was the main selling point for all of them.
Neon green works for Skeletor's crew really well.
Trapjaw finally has his 200x hook and blasters are always welcome
Spikor made Skeletor one as well
And of course the scythes are perfect for reapers...(still need a glow in the dark set for him)
Roboto created a swiss army arm cannon (These I'm saving for Cy-Chop)
Ordered 5 of the armory sets and one of the weapon packs today. Looking forward to seeing what I can creat with these awesome looking sets.
Awesome pics! I ordered two armory sets and two close combat sets yesterday. Can't wait to get them in.
Got our second look at the SMC armory sets and Weaponeers of Monkaa with a MOTUC focus posted today
put in my order yesterday for the 6 figures 3 weapons sets and 1 head pack can't wait
more feedback from the org
Thanks Hadley! I usually try and keep my builds fairly simple in review/article posts and keep the big builds for other stuff or forum posts. I'd rather show people the basics and let them discover the complex build on their own. I'm sure your ideas are very possible, the glyos peg system is so versatile that almost anything is possible given the right parts. I would love to check out some of your builds sometime.
I'm afraid of the weapon sets becoming a huge gateway drug into Glyos figures!
Hm...maybe they'll make a biological wave one day instead of robots. Perhaps something that can stand in for Modulok! Oh, perchance to dream...
Glyos is a great line run by an amazing dude, plus the toys are really cheap price wise.
most of the characters actually are organic just wearing armor and stuff. for the record
Those weapon packs look great! I saw them at Power-Con but sadly, my budget was tight that weekend. Fortunately, I did pick up one of my favorite pieces at Spy Monkey's booth...The Dungeon Grate! I finally had a chance to paint it, keeping it mostly like the vintage sticker but with some minor tweaks...
Awesome paint-up of that grate, there! It's by Working Class Villains (who shared table space with SMC.) I tried to win the painted one at the auction but I lost out. I am planning on getting one and painting it up, though it makes me a wee bit nervous.
Ordered all of the close combat sets and another round of all of the other sets (of weapons).
I have a sneaky suspicion that I might have to do yet another order of a third round of weapons sets and a second round of close combat sets...
This is Lego for grown ups, only higher quality and more adult themed. Love all your stuff, can't wait to get more!
Fabulous secret powers revealed
I agree on most of that staement, but higher quality? I don't think anyone has ever accused lego of being low quality
