The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Sofubi Glow in the Dark Colossus Rex Action FigureThis 12-inch Sofubi Glow in the Dark Colossus Rex was delayed a long time. Customs can take a while... and I have to say when the box finally showed up in October I was almost rolling my eyes, thinking "this can't possibly be worth the price and the wait." Well, it was, and it was. It's gorgeous. It's a glowing beacon. It's incredible and I'm glad they're planning on doing at least a few more of these.

I don't buy a lot of big toys lately - I'm going small. Game Boy Advance games, keshi-like figures, things you can collect hundreds of in a box. Colossus Rex is huge, standing closer to 12 1/2-inches tall thanks to his head fin. The sculpting appears to be based on the Four Horsemen's work on the small figures, but scaled up and simplified.

The glowing vinyl figure lacks the shield and armor, but you get 7 joints this time. The knees swivel, as do the hips, shoulders, and neck. It does not appear to pop apart easily, so I'm not going to try.

There's no paint, but the big size helps make things like the sculpted scales easier to see. It's not as impressive as the fully-painted smaller figure, but it's still sharp. (The club, in particular.) The open claws and mace are closer to the configuration of the original bendy figure from 50 years ago, but that one had no neck. So the neck is a nice bonus.

The original 1960s Colossus Rex had a mace with a ring on it, and this new one does as well. You can put it on the index finger or thumb, allowing for a couple of different poses. If you jostle the figure, he may drop it - but at least it's a clever way of getting around the gripped fists of the smaller, Glyos-compatible figure.

Sofubi figures are an odd creature - high-end expensive low-run figures, but they're modeled after really cheap hollow toys from a while back. The style comes and goes out of US toy lines, with Hasbro having made some big cheap vinyl guys for Attack of the Clones and some smaller, cheaper tagged figures you can find re-reissued at Walmart for Transformers right now. It's crazy expensive, but it's big and it glows. I had to have it - I got the painted one, too. I assume you'll want at least one of these. If you don't have far too many figures, it's a good one to add to a growing collection of good-size figures.
