En Route: White Star Cyclops from The Outer Space Men

It's new! From the Outer Space Men Instagram, it's confirmation that White Star Cyclops is coming soon. When is soon? No idea - but usually an announcement means we're probably looking for it in the next 1-2 weeks! From the official Instagram:

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.

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.
