Four Horsemen Outer Space Men Cosmic Creators Four Horsemen Metamorpho Action FigureYet another version of Metamorpho! Dubbed "Megamorpho," this figure takes a cue from the neon end of space which vaguely recalls the aliens of Major Matt Mason as well as numerous toys of the late 1980s and 1990s. A radical departure from the previous painted versions of this figure, Metamorpho is cast in a metallic pink with bright blues and greens that are arguably the very thing people are complaining about when they call something "too neon." This means, of course, that it is perfect.

With about 20 parts when fully disassembled, this figure is more or less the same thing you've come to love and expect. The key difference, of course, is the insanely awesome paint job that should do a fine job of blinding your friends when they walk in the room. This time around, the "alien" head is blue, the "ape" head is green, and the "reptile" head is pink. His "button" on his chest plus the knob on his helmet are clear green, with the accessories rendered in the same pink plastic with painted green elements.

If you're new here, or haven't played with these, the figure is made with Glyos system pegs which means you can pop him apart at each joint and reconfigure him or swap his parts with other figures. Even the three-faces-in-one head can spin, but unlike previous releases my sample's head mechanism is a little stiff. Normally you twist the knob on the head to swap between faces, and it generally does so easily. This one trips up a bit, you can still pop it apart to reset it if needed. (It might be a paint thickness issue, the other ones seem just fine and it's worth noting the 2.0 Metamorpho sample I have is A-OK as well.)

Four Horsemen Outer Space Men Cosmic Creators Four Horsemen Metamorpho Action FigureThe weapons match the costume, as usual, except now they're a bright metallic purple with green orbs at the end of them. With various fins and emitters, they look like something out of a post-post-Flash Gordon sci-fi era from before Star Wars and NASA made everything look so... well, realistic. I may never know which function these weapons really serve, but I can say that they still look really cool.

The edition size has, as far as I can tell, not been disclosed at this time but you can check here for availability. The fist Cosmic Creators set was $125, so at $65 I assume the run must be a smidgen larger. The figure is one of my favorites in the set, which (as a radical departure from the normal figures) is most welcome. $65 for 4 repaints isn't exactly a bargain, but even after getting roughly 50 different Outer Space Men I can't say I've ever regretted a single purchase. Each one is fun and I can honestly say that even at the price, I'd buy it again. Well, if I had to. One set is good, I don't need two. The only place they could have made these figures even more appealing was if elements actually could glow in the dark, as the names of the other characters tend to suggest.

Will there be more Cosmic Creators sets in the works? I'm guessing yes, but what do I know? Stay tuned to see if someone else, maybe the Onell Design crew, try their hand at these guys!
