Four Horsemen Outer Space Men Holiday Astro-Nautilus Action FigureNow it's red-- and why not? Ocean life takes on all kinds of colors, so why not space-based sea-creature-people? The Holiday Edition Astro-Nautilus is quite similar to the existing figures, with one exception-- well, two actually. The first is that the figure is now cast in a deep, red, clear color. The second big difference is that his accessory is not clear, but rather, it's vac-metalized like those old Tomy drivers in Starriors or Zoids, or like some of the weapons on the original Transformers line.

Four Horsemen Outer Space Men Holiday Astro-Nautilus Action FigureThe figure has the same great articulation you've come to expect, and, as with the other releases in this line, can be taken apart and reassembled in a variety of ways. This is particularly fun if you want to give his limbs to other figures, like the clear red Inferno. Astro-Nautilus has just shy of 20 points of articulation, thanks in part to his tentacle arms.

The attention to detail remains intact because, well, that's an advantage of repaints-- you can get two, three, or a dozen nice figures after you invest in one high-quality sculpt. The figure has a nautilus-like head, suction cup-covered tentacle arms, and legs which are similar to the other figures in the line. The main reason I bought this wave was because I loved the clear blue Inferno, and because I really dug the idea of the vac-metal silver accessories. (Sadly, I only got silver accessories with Inferno and Astro-Nautilus. I think they look way better than the gold.) With painted green eyes, there's not a lot of deco on this figure but I still like it a lot. If you're into this line in general I expect that you will enjoy it, unless the fact that there are only 4 molds between the 16 (20 if you count variants) action figures is bringing you down, man.
