Review: Four Horsemen Outer Space Men Infinity Edition Gemini Action Figure

Four Horsemen Outer Space Men Infinity Edition Gemini Action FigureOne of the unfortunate thing about the Outer Space Men line is that we get unpainted exclusives of each figure roughly six months prior to the official painted releases, and in that time expectations can start to go up. Gemini, with his high piece count, looked like he was going to be fantastic, and the truth is he turned out quite well. The only real drawback I found was sort of nitpicky, and that's with the deco. Molded in white plastic (like the rest of this series) the figure's yellow paint seems a little rougher than the rest of the line, which tends to be pretty clean and glossy. For all I know, it's just my sample, but it definitely lacks the sort of polish that the other dozen or more painted figures have received so far. Thankfully the silver face paint and clear helmets turned out perfectly, so the end result is a very good action figure that, in nearly any other line, would be spectacular. With wave mates like Cyclops it's hard to look awesome, but the sculpting makes this a fairly weighty release.

  1. LOVE this guy. This recent wave is awesome.
    I'm displaying Gemini with the green helmets from the alpha release (being a stickler for the original design)
