Four Horsemen Outer Space Men White Star Mystron Action FigureDid 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.

In white, the figure takes on a slightly different aura. It's less "evil demon" and more "Classic statue." Seriously, in white this could be some sort of Roman marble statue figure. The beard looks more ancient, the scowl more patronly. And yeah, he's still got the horns. The blue eyes aren't exactly scary, but there's a blue handheld gargoyle gun for that. The arms are swappable as always, the tail and wings plug in nicely, and he's got the same fancy pants you know and love. It's a nice little thing, and if it had some sort of marble or textured finish I bet it'd look even more amazing. He's also got big feet, which, I guess, should make him popular. Or a clown.

As with the others, the accessories all just work. Glyos parts tend to fit perfectly, so those wings and tail can pop out and pop in with no real problems. The form fit of the 2-piece helmet is perfect, and the hands can hold the weapons. It's tight - very tight - but it works. That's the one nice thing you can say about any figure out of the Glyos program - functionally, it won't suck. The people behind them won't allow it. Sculpted details by The Four Horsemen look as good as always, with lots of little things in the head and gun, while the rest of the figure looks like a descendant of the 1960s. It works.

Four Horsemen Outer Space Men White Star Mystron Action FigureWhite Star Mystron is neat, but this is easily the least interesting of the 6 total Mystron figures produced. The set now goes far below its initial asking price when you find one for sale. A set of 8 can go for as little as $32. At that price, I'd say it's the best value you're likely to see for Outer Space Men. With the new Orbitron it's kind of stunning to see the line isn't quite dead - so hey, if you care, fill in that collection. The infatuation period ended for most fans, and a lot of people seem to be ready to cash out.
