Review: The Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Orbitron Action Figure


The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Orbitron Action FigureSince its debut, the Outer Space Men Man from Uranus has really grown on me as one of the best. Sure Cosmic Radiation Orbitron looks like they just cast a Metaluna Mutant in glow plastic, but there are a few differences - not the least of which is that this one is a more convincing space alien thanks to it not wearing normal pants. Now cast on glow with silver highlights, you're either going to totally appreciate yet another Cold War-era monster in radioactive glow, or you're over it. I can see it being too much of a good thing, but if you're going to give me too much of anything I'm glad that it glows in the dark.

Review: Four Horsemen Outer Space Men White Star Commander Comet Action Figure

Four Horsemen Outer Space Men White Star Commander Comet Action FigureBelieve it or not, I expected the look at White Star Commander Comet to be the obituary for this line - maybe I've said that before a few times. By the end of 2013 and 2014, fan sentiment toward the Four Horsemen's two Glyos properties seemed to straddle the fence between adoration and loathing. On one hand, Power Lords and The Outer Space Men were amazingly well-crafted indie toys using familiar licenses to make something for the discriminating action figure fan.

Review: Onell Design Outer Space Men Gemini Ulstriax - Fugitive from Algol

Onell Design Outer Space Men OSM Gemini Ulstriax - Fugitive from Algol Action FigureAs far as bang for the buck goes, the amount of parts in the Onell Design crossover OSM Gemini Ulstriax - Fugitive from Algol is pretty solid - and if you buy the matching companion Quallerran figure, it's even better. Not only is this a nicely decorated figure molded in light grey plastic, but Onell Design tossed in some bonus parts - dark red clear weapons of Orbitron are thrown in the bag at no extra charge. This is only the second heavily decorated version of Gemini out of a grand total of seven releases. The main, classic yellow one should be your first purchase and this Onell Design special edition should be your next stop.

Review: The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Cyclops Action Figure

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Cyclops Action FigureSince its rebirth, it seems we're going to be getting a few new Outer Space Men figures like Cosmic Radiation Cyclops. A complete glow in the dark lineup has been teased, but not confirmed - so far this year alone, we've received 5 figures in glow plastic. Interestingly, the non-vintage characters haven't made the transition, nor have the first two years worth of character remakes - but teaser mock-ups make me think we can expect them all next year. I'm kind of glad they're working backwards, as these designs are a little more complex and fun as stand-alone figures... plus they're massive masses of glowing plastic.
For those keeping track at home, the first few Cyclops figures came out in 2012 with the painted one hitting in 2013. It was a gorgeous figure, and the final of four Cyclops figures until now. There's this one, and in January we're told the White Star version will also go on sale.
