Review: Onell Design Outer Space Men OSM Cyclops Zardurac

Onell Design Outer Space Men OSM Cyclops Zardurac Action FigureOne of the recurring questions in any toy collecting game is, eventually, the issue of "Do I want to buy another version of this character?" Grumpy me says yes, because OSM Cyclops Zardurac is a different and distinctive enough take on the man from beyond the Milky Way that it becomes interesting. It also, surprisingly, had a larger production run which had not sold out prior to arriving in my hands a mere 4 days after placing my order. Not 4 business days, but I ordered Thursday and got it Monday. That's bonkers fast. (As always, thank you Matt for the fast delivery and the bonus goodies. Oh, the bonus goodies.)

Review: Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Commander Comet Action Figure

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Commander Comet Action FigureThere are lots of glowing Outer Space Men now, some of which make more sense than others. Me, I want 'em all because I love glowing things. Cosmic Radiation Commander Comet a sensible idea, given that an angel-looking thing could make sense as a glowing, ethereal being. It's just like the other ones, but it glows. And has silver paint. It's good.

Outer Space Men Colossus Rex 2.0 Running Low
The Outer Space Men figure Colossus Rex 2.0 is now in "low stock" status so says the official Instagram. We reviewed this figure last year, and it's excellent. If you haven't yet bought yours, now would be a good time - the first version got expensive once it went away.

This figure is molded in green with a blue paint added for his scales, with golden weapons.  They're cast in clear ABS plastic with a golden paint job, which looks swell up close.  The original release had purple weapons.

Review: Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Astro-Nautilus

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Astro-Nautilus Action FigureI don't know how many of you know how these reviews work, but to do one every day I have to basically set them up like an assembly line and do them weeks - sometimes months - in advance. This Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Astro-Nautilus comes out tonight, and getting it shot, reviewed, and up this quickly can be a trouble. (Heck, this intro? Wrote it when the figure was still in the mail.) That's one of the good and bad things about reviewing toys - on one hand, I know what kind of quality to expect from this ongoing line as the actual manifestation rarely disappoints. It also speaks of a certain homogeny that creeps in to even the best indie line - eventually I can tell you what a figure will be before it even arrives. The Astro-Nautilus mold is an awesome, creative design that is one of my favorites. The glow plastic from the Glyos factory is second to none, resulting in some of the brightest glowing figures you can buy today. I haven't even held the figure in my hands yet, and I'm perfectly comfortable telling you that fans of glow and this design are going to want it and should buy it along with whatever other glow figures are in the store that you don't have yet. Scary, eh? Anyway, let's open the bag.

Available Now: OSM Cyclops Zardurac, Bonus Weapons with Pheyden
A new Onell Design drop just went live with a new Outer Space Men figure - or at least one, as there's also a mystery figure.  OSM Cyclops Zardurac is up now in pink and blue, and it's $25.00.  These usually go fast, so click here to see if you can still order one.

Also I noticed Pheyden Zardurac has bonus OSM weapons, after I placed my order.  Well, shoot.  That's what I get for not reading all the fine print before hitting "place order."
