Umbreus_01

New Spymonkey Creations items are up for sale today at noon, PST.  Today we take a look at the brand new deluxe version of Umbreus and a deluxe weapons pack!

Umbreus_02Umbreus is the main villain of Spy Monkey Creations’ Weaponeers of Monkaa toy line.  Dropping 5/1/13 at noon, PST, is Bloodlust Umbreus.  According to the story posted on Weaponeersofmonkaa.com, Bloodlust Umbreus is a powered up version of the usually construction-colored Umbreus.

Check out the story if you have a chance.  It really made me interested in picking up this Umbreus and the Obsidian Golem featured in the sale.  Plus, it’s also illustrated to great effect by artist and Fwoosher Nate Baertsch.

Umbreus_04This deluxe version of Umbreus is basically a repaint of the regular Umbreus with some extra vac-metal spike pieces to help complete his powered-up look.

Umbreus_05I do like this version of the Umbreus build as it bulks him up a bit, and the spikes make for an overall more intimidating profile.

Umbreus_06If you aren’t familiar with the Weaponeers of Monkaa figures, they are built on the glyos system of joints.  These swivel joints work on pegs and the all the separate parts can be swapped around and changed up.

Umbreus_07The cool thing about these Weaponeers of Monkaa sets is that all the characters can be built from one package.  Each of the heads (except Empyreus and Umbreus) can be used as weapons or hands.

When mixed with previous Spy Monkey Creations weapons packs, these blades  can be added to figures like Trap Jaw to give him more attachment options.

Umbreus_11Umbreus_12Umbreus_13These black weapons are perfect for Trappy, but would work for a wide variety of your MOTU figures.  You also need the chrome blade to fight off MOTUC Snake Face!  At 5 bucks, these accessories are a total steal.  These also go on sale 5/1/13 at noon pacific at http://spymonkeycreations.ecrater.com/
