The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men White Star Gemini Action FigureThis one came out fairly late - it was manufactured in late 2016. Sometimes you never know what you want until you get it. I liked seeing the various Outer Space Men in various colors, but the pigment-free versions left me a little cold. I rather liked the three figure designs that didn't previously get the White Star treatment, more than many of the ones that did. When we were teased that White Star Gemini would exist, part of me was a little miffed it wasn't in color. But I'd be lying if I said it didn't turn out nicely - there's a lot of blue here that breaks up the white. It's good. I won't say it's as amazing as some of the other Gemini they've put out, but it's very good and it does a nice job of showing you the sculpting. Unlike, say, the clear ones.

You've seen Gemini before, and the main reason I assume many will want this figure is to complete their set - along with Cyclops and Orbitron, all (previously available) figures are now sold in this style. I assume Astrodite will be too, but who knows? I don't.

White Gemini is decent, mostly because he/they bring out the detail nicely. You can see the various lines on the suit, the fake accordion joints, and of course the many facial features which often vanish in the clear color and some of the painted versions. The lobes and pointed ears really pop in white, and they look great under the blue domed helmets. With blue painted eyes, there's not a lot of deco here - you can add some if you like, but I consider such modifications to be blasphemous. The white figure with the blue gear actually works quite nicely.

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men White Star Gemini Action FigureThe PVC plastic white figure is outfitted with blue ABS elements, such as a ray gun, a staff handle, three helmets, and ten blue plugs on the torso. This is kind of brilliant, mostly because it's a way to add decoration to a figure without adding paint costs to it. Those dots make the body look really cool, and they fit right in with the 1960s space aesthetic we've got going on here. Thanks to the dots and helmets, the figure goes from being a blank slate to something that in these colors, you could see on a toy store shelf as a sellable item. Granted some more blue would be even better, but this best matches the aesthetic we've had going on so far.

The accessories for White Star Gemini are consistent with the other Gemini figures. You get a cool 4-piece staff with a pole, a helmet, a head, and a base - it's impressive stuff. You get a clear ray gun that looks like it fell out of the golden age of space toys. (This is because that is where it originated.) You also get alternate arms - the right and left arms come with "straight" and "bent" versions which act as a replacement for the accordion joint bendy construction of the original aliens. I've found the alternate arms to be cool, but less essential as time goes on - the main event is the figure and its gear. The arms are icing on the cake, but it might actually take me a while to realize they weren't included were they to ever drop them completely.

For fans of The Outer Space Men, you were either eager to complete your White Star collection or were glad it dropped off the face of the Earth. Well, it's back now and it's good - it's the "marble statue" equivalent of the earlier action figures, giving you something a little less garish than some of the other options. Of course, I like garish - there's no such thing as too ugly when it comes to colors in my book, so I'll be here for when they do 1990s neon eye-searing variants as well. Since the figure's sculpt looks best in non-clear colors, I'd say this is a good one to get. I'm going to need to set up a shelf or a little cabinet of just the White Star versions because, as a group, the unified look is quite striking. If you don't have the desire to collect them all, it's still good - I'd say grab the Cosmic Radiation or Infinity Editions first, but this is a decent one too.
