Astrodite: Yup, Still Coming
It has been a few years since the figure was revealed to a mostly ambivalent public in New York, but hey - she's coming!  Astrodite is the Woman from Venus, and was the only figure shown to the public which hadn't been produced.  It looks like that may change - the official Outer Space Men Instagram showed a couple of shots with the caption "She is coming!"

Really, what else is there to say?

Cosmic Radiation Edition Outer Space Men Coming This Month
Announced via Instagram on July 2, Cosmic Radiation Edition Outer Space Men are coming - somewhere, on some day roughly 3 weeks from now, at an undisclosed price.

For the paranoid among us, three weeks from the post date would put it squarely during San Diego Comic-Con, thus being something of an issue for those otherwise occupied with travel and feat of fast sell-outs.  Hopefully it won't be until after the show, but one can never predict these things.

This selection of 8 figures is the same as the first White Star box - Commander Comet, Xodiac, Metamorpho, Alpha 7, Electron+, Astro-Nautilus, Inferno, and Mystron.

For those keeping track, there have been three figures which boast glow-in-the-dark features previously.  Metamorpho in 2010 was cast in a pale glow plastic with yellow clear accessories.   Electron+ was made in the same glow colors but with purple accessories in 2011.  In 2014, we got a Gamma-X with painted glow over its frame, but the quality of the glow was pretty rotten.
