Dracut, MA - July 21, 2008 – Limited to 200 pieces, the Wraith Pheyden will be sold by CollectionDX staff at the Onell Design Booth, #4937
The Wraith Pheyden follows the successful Gore Sky Deviler – a collaboration between CollectionDX, Kaiju Big Battel and Marmit.
Pheyden is part of the Glyos Series System of affordable action figures, created by Onell Design founder Matt Doughty. Each figure is 3 inches tall and features 13 injected molded parts.
“Wraith Pheyden exists in a different dimension than the other Pheyden” Says CollectionDX founder Joshua Bernard. “He’s a kind of parasitic ghost, who lays traps on backwater planets. When an unsuspecting victim puts on the Pheyden armor, his body and soul get taken over by the Wraith,
trapping what’s left of the physical form inside.”
Limited to 200 pieces, the Wraith Pheyden will be sold by CollectionDX staff at the Onell Design Booth, #4937. The first 50 pieces will come with an exclusive signed and numbered print by Joshua Bernard. Wraith Pheyden will be available the following week at the East Coast summit, and then any remaining units will be sold on CollectionDX.com

DRACUT, MASSACHUSETTS, November 5, 2008 — Following the sold-out "Gore Version Sky Deviler" CollectionDX is proud to announce our latest exclusive toy - the Nor'easter ver. Vegetius!
Vegetius stands 12 inches tall and is made out of translucent blue glitter soft vinyl. Made in Japan by the master craftsmen at Marmit, Vegetius has 5 points of articulation and is limited to 50 pieces.
Vegetius is one of the many giant monsters that take part in the Boston-based Kaiju Big Battel, a series of live action-monster wrestling events. He is the most beast-like creature of the Battel and no man or monster can control him around food.
This color scheme is meant to evoke the harsh, cold winter of the New England region, home to both CollectionDX and Kaiju Big Battel. The blue vinyl is translucent with metallic flakes; a color mixed exclusively for CollectionDX. This color has never been done by Marmit before.
Nor'easter ver. Vegetius is available NOW in the CollectionDX shop for $65
The figure comes bagged with a header card featuring art by CollectionDX’s own JoshB.
