MAN-E-FEATURE// The Glyos creations of Marty “GodBeast” Hansen…

(Wolf various Glyos customs / original Armorvor Wolf prototype, cast by TGB)

Being relative newcomers to the Glyos universe, we had only really known of Marty “Godbeast” Hansen from his prototyping/casting work on Ben Spencer’s Galaxxor series- that was until we happened upon his blog this week…

Skimming through the hundreds of beautifully sculpt and cast Glyos original figures and customs, it was easy to see how the “GodBeast” name has stuck- the quantity and quality of his work is quite simply inhuman! Marty posted a few pics of his latest Glyos heads yesterday, so we thought we’d give you a rundown of a few that caught our eye…

Originally created for The GodBeast x Onell Design ‘Armorvor’ earlier this year (sculpted by Jason Frailey and designed by Onell‘s Matt Doughty), Marty has once again been working with the ‘Infection’ Fly head, this time affixed to Pheyden Glyos bodies. We’ve fallen in love with the Rothan figure- the bright green really helps to make the sculpt’s detail pop!

After the popularity of ‘Infection’ Fly, Marty was asked by a collector to sculpt a cobra head for the same Armorvor figure. The latest incarnations feature some pretty impressive paintwork, our favourite being the gold Exellis Glyos to the right… WANT!!

Sculpted by Marty’s son MJ, Mammoth Monster was first released last year at C2E2 as a roto-cast figure limited to just 12 pieces. The latest incarnation, pictured a-top of a Gatekeeper Vanin Sarvos, Core Phanost, and Nebula Pheyden, leaves us with no doubt that MJ will be following in his dad’s resin soaked footsteps. The detail on these guys is truly amazing, whilst the wild fade sprays and glass eyes translate perfectly onto the various Glyos designs- definitely one to watch…

Head over to the GodBeast site and blog for more info on Marty’s work.

Stay tuned for an exclusive interview with the other half of Galaxxor, Ben Spencer, right here tomorrow!
