Review: The Outer Space Men Alpha Phase Electron+, the Man from Pluto

Why the break? Well, after doing this for about a year it became apparent that October 2011 needed more prep work than I could handle-- I had a trip to two of the major US toy companies, a convention in New York, and I'm moving into a new office all within a 3-week period. So let's continue with Electron+, the second glow-in-the-dark release in the Outer Space Men line after Metamorpho in 2010. As the first action figure of Electron+, it's worth noting that while the arms, legs, and lower torso were recycled, the figure is actually shorter than other figures in the line.

NYCC 2011 Outer Space Men Exclusive Pre-Order at AFX

In case you missed them at the show, has the 2011 Outer Space Men Beta Wave up for pre-order for $49.99.

Before you complain about the price, note that at the show, each PAIR of figures was $25, effectively making the quartet $50. (Obviously, shipping is extra, but that sort of makes up for the hotel and cabs and whatnot.)

NYCC Outer Space Men Pricing Revealed (and Increased)

The Four Horsemen posted news on the prices and sellers for the 2011 Beta Wave figures. That's the good news. The bad news is that they're $25 for 2 sets at each of 2 booths rather than $40 for a set of 4 at 1 booth.

200 sets will be brought to NYCC. 100 sets will be sold online after the show... and for all I know it might be $49 shipped for all 4. So if you're in New York, happy hunting! And if not... happy clicking!
