They're coming!  But when? I have no idea.  I'm looking forward to these guys.  Previews have been posted for Alpha 7, Mystron, Commander Comet, Astro-Nautilus, and a second glowing version of Electron+.  Good times.
I'm dying for Astro-Nautilus.  Check 'em out from the official Instragram.

Review: Outer Space Men White Star Cyclops Action Figure


The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men White Star Cyclops Action FigureThe curse of completism! The Outer Space Men doesn't have a lot of subsets - there were a couple of "wave" repaints of fancy recolors, but the only linewide uniform set up until White Star figures were the Infinity Edition figures. All but three of the figure molds came out in white with blue trim by 2014, with no indicaton when - or if - the set would be completed. The concept was neat, but I'd be lying if I said that White Star Cyclops was a gap in my collection that I needed filled. He and his brothers look really cool, with the while plastic doing a good job showing off some details that weren't visible on some of the clear or painted figures. But did I need another Cyclops?

Review: Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Gemini Action Figure

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Gemini Action FigureSince I first saw Outer Space Men in Tomart's Action Figure Digest when I was a wee lad, I thought to myself "Dammit, I can never afford these things." Never in a million years would I expect to be able to correspond with one of its inventors, nor that the likes of Cosmic Radiation Gemini would exist. And be affordable. It's almost unfathomable - a space race-era toy line lost to history would come back as an indie toy line, ad then cranked out in glow-in-the-dark plastic. Yet here we are. If 2017 was anything, it was certainly an example of how you really can't predict anything - and this figure was one of five new glowing The Outer Space Men.
