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."

Dated - Cosmic Radiation Astro-Nautilus

Who says dreams don't come true?  Gary Schaeffer of has dropped a note to confirm that Cosmic Radiation Astro-Nautilus will be dropped next week Friday, April 14.   An early sample appears to the left - it's gorgeous.  Of particular note, the suckers are painted and that really brings out a little more personality.  I hope they paint future ones much like these.

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?
