The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Zero Gravity Action FigureI was expecting a glow-in-the-dark version of Jack Asteroid - which we got - but to get a new character like Zero Gravity too? I'm surprised. He costs more than the original Jack Asteroid figure and has less paint, but the dude friggin' glows. The fully Glyos-compatible astronaut has alternate bent/straight arms and can be taken apart at nearly every point of articulation, and then some. That little moon ingot pops off, the helmet dismantles to 3 pieces, and the figure has an ab and a belt joint. The mold should look familiar - it was first released as the glow-in-the-dark Alpha Phase Metamorpho in 2010, and was subsequently released as multiple Metamorpho and Jack Asteroid bodies, most of which was reused for other figures in the first couple years of the line. It's the perfect generic humanoid template, they could keep more heads coming and I'd probably buy even more redeco figures.

As of today, this is the only released figure of this character - there are no clear versions, there's no fully-painted version. This figure takes the best things about the Cosmic Radiation figures and the painted figures, giving you one figure instead of several. I like it.

Our 4-inch hero stands tall with his removable helmet, complete with flip-up visor. It popped open as I removed the figure from his plastic prison, surprising me with a level of detail on the head I had not anticipated. The eyes are utterly perfect - bright, lively, and similar to the other humans (and Venusians) in this action figure line with some of the best detail I've ever seen at this scale. He has a big grin and painted teeth, painted lips, a mustache, dynamite eyebrows, and he is one of very few figures with a shaved head that shows painted detail of the remaining fuzz. There's a hint of black hair on his dome, with the head cast in white PVC. The rest of the figural parts are glow PVC.

His uniform closely matches Terra Firma and Jack Asteroid, swapping out the Earth for the Moon and orange plastic for glow. The white stripe on Jack's chest is red on Zero's, but other than that they're largely quite similar with accessories adding in glow highlights. It's sharp and clean, with 13 points of articulation. He stands and sits well, but this is one of very few Glyos-compatible figures I've ever owned where I would say that the leg joints are a little loose. Not floppy loose, they're just not as tight as the many dozens - hundreds - of others I've seen over the years.

The figure's armaments include a US-based Moon flag, seemingly reimagined to incorporate America's acquisition of the Moon, an era-appropriate idea. The magnet jetpack has glowing energy bolts and a gold bit inside a clear dome - it's great! The cap of the flag glows as well, as does the blaster's orbs, grip, and emitter.

I like this figure - I flinched when I saw a black man from the dark side of the Moon, but his companion Luna Eclipse turned that back a bit. Science fiction has been around forever, but inclusion is still pretty poor and little things like who you cast in a specific role can be tomorrow's term paper or criticism. In this case, I think it was a good choice - he glows in the dark. He's the best human male in space. The figure itself does not offer a lot new compared to figures you've already possibly purchased, but the head gives you a new character and the space motif of the moon on a US flag really appeals to me. If you are buying any of these, add this to your next order. I'm hoping to see more humans in the sci-fi space race here - I've nagged people involved with the line about Soviet or Chinese adventurers with appropriate costumes, too.
