Rubik's Snake + a Glyanaut = ???

After watching everything unfold over on the Glyos blog with the new "Tri Hub Wedge" vinyl set coming out on Friday, I finally lost it and made a white/blue Glyanaut to hang out inside my Rubik's Snake. Here are some photos to give you all an idea on what you can make with these Tri Hub Wedges or with a rubik's snake if you have one.

Rubik Runner

"Hover platform mode to carry a Glyanaut and a pair of passengers or some cargo over any terrain."

Rubik Shield Generator

"Converting to a Energy Shield generator, the Glyanauts are protected from meteor showers or any hostile aliens located in the Zorennor sector of space."

Rubik Hover'oid

"For a more heavily armored vehicle and with more maneuverability then the Rubik Runner, the Rubik Hover'oid is perfect for 1 Glyanaut to get in an out of a hostile area- and FAST."

Now, keep in mind that the Glyos Tri Hub Wedges have 3 connection points on them, so every large flat area you see on the Rubik's Snake (aka the Rubik's Twist) will be able to have a switch-pin attached or another small-peg vinyl part. So the customize-ability of these wedges is limited only by your imagination. I'm super excited for these things and can't wait to get a bunch of them to build with.

EMD Behemoth

With all the Glyocity talk and teaser images going on over at the Glyos blog, I decided to quit playing it safe with my vinyl Glyos stuff and just go for broke. The EMD Behemoth is the result of this:

"The EMD Behemoth is a variation of the Rig Squadron's 'Big Rig' but is used more as a heavily armored transport vehicle that can carry at least 6 glyans into battle. It can reconfigure itself into a battle outpost and into a Power-Arm Rig that uses it's twin Phase Blockers to knock back enemies 100 feet away. Gorrrg the Hunter serves as the strong-man for the EMD unit and drives the Behemoth when not on his Rig Hopper."

Cane: "Now the Genedrone revolution won't know what hit them."

(Battle Outpost Mode)

I'm excited about the Glyocity parts coming out, they certainly sound like pieces that can expand what I've built here. Awesome stuff. :-D
