Review: Four Horsemen Outer Space Men White Star Mystron Action Figure
Did you know that The Outer Space Men toy line turns 50 this year? It's true! The space race got people really excited about space and space toys, until we landed on the moon and everybody got bored. Because of that, the original prototype figure that led to White Star Mystron was never produced - but we got little versions of him now for a fairly nice price. If you've been following these reviews - and I've only got a couple left to write - you no doubt know that a lot of the early figures share a ton of parts, which coincided with lower pricing. Everybody won! ...initially. This Mystron was in a Comic-Con exclusive from 2013, after each figure had a minimum of 4 or 5 releases in various colors. The higher prices and reduced paint was sort of a slap in the face. I still bought it - and I basically like it, even though it'd make a better custom base than a play or display toy. Also I get to say that I own a White Devil action figure.
