Review: Four Horsemen Outer Space Men Alpha Phase Cyclops Action Figure
The tallest Glyos-compatible figure yet, Cylcops debuted in the summer of 2012 in this swell blue color. It matches similar Inferno, Alpha 7, Electron+, and Astro-Nautilus figures sold since 2010 and is part of a 3-figure, $50 set. That's a bit of an increase, but well, that's life. New tooling costs money and rising costs in China are going to make a lot of people remember the good old days when companies only charged six bucks for a figure. Towering over the other Outer Space Men, Cyclops also has the most gear with removable armor, a giant helmet, and swappable hands. This time around, the character had open hands or closed fists to carry his twin ray guns. It's an impressive specimen, although one that almost feels like it might collapse under its own weight.
