Item Name: Hermit w/ Housedroid and Armodrone
From the 9/3/2009 Glyos Transmission Log:
"Somehow a few new customs were knocked out during the mayhem of the latest launch. Parts of the piloted one were shown a little while ago as an example of the PVC to vinyl building potential of the new Armodoc. That little bandaged guy is based on a character that I made when I was younger. His name was (and still is) "Hermit" and he piloted a robot that could transform into a house. Yeah, a house. I have no idea why, but I was obsessed with Hermit and his Robo-Domicile through most of my youth and I still think about this character now (as evidenced by this custom). When we got an invitation to Mark Nagata's Toy Karma 2 it seemed like a good opportunity to update this old character. This time he has a strange, beefy little Armodrone messing with him. Maybe they used to be friends and couldn't agree on the rent for Hermit's retarded Housedroid. Either way, we are honored over here to be included in Toy Karma 2 at Rotofugi Gallery out in Chicago this Saturday. The lineup is insane and the customs will be diverse and glorious. Maybe Hermit will find a new place to live while he's out there. Thanks to Mark, Matt Walker and Rotofugi for letting us jump on board this great event."
