The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men White Star Orbitron Action FigureGoing bright - not just white, the Outer Space Men continues the long march to the sea with White Star Orbitron. I should be bored with the format, but I'm not - the unique body types cast in white look worthwhile, so the unique space bug-esque parts pop nicely when extruded in white with blue highlights.

White Orbitron delivers the goods - a mutated mutant, with a nifty star on his belly that almost seems more of a modern design than of something that was concocted 50 years ago. The design aged well - the big giant brain is something we've seen on numerous toys and characters, the mouth/lower face region still seems fresh despite similar designs appearing elsewhere, and the bug-like arms are still fantastic.

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men White Star Orbitron Action Figure

The white figure has three painted dots - two eyes and a chest ornament. His weapons are clear blue ABS, thin and pointy. The star is actually sharper than you're used to seeing on most toys, showcasing one of the rare advantages you get from low-run toys for adult collectors. There's zero marketing to children, so something that would probably be fragile or dangerous for kids doesn't get rounded-off edges or rubbery plastic. With that in mind, keep this away from your kids.

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men White Star Orbitron Action FigureAs with the previous Orbitron figures, you can pop him apart and swap parts with other figures thanks to the Glyos body construction system. 14 parts can be assembled or lost, and you can make multi-color versions if you have the other releases of the mold. By my count, there are at least six Orbitrons so far in just this line, not counting the original or its many knock-offs.

Each time they put out a new version of one of these molds I usually see something differently than before - the claws stand out a bit, the various levels and joints on the arms show up much more nicely, and it's a lot easier to see the strange star circle on his belly. I'm also thinking that the brain looks better when you mount it backward - but it's up to you since the figure's construction actually offers you the option of choosing how to orient it. I'm hoping they did a good size run of these because I'm really fond of the overall creature design, and I'm also really hoping there are customizers out there who might repaint this one and show off some original designs. It's really good, but if you've already got the three clear ones, the glow one, and the two painted ones you might be in good shape for the various men from Uranus. As part of a complete collection it's a required purchase, but as one-offs go I'd say Orbitron is one of the better White Star figures.
