The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Cthulhu Nautilus Action FigureI probably don't need to review Cosmic Radiation Cthulhu Nautilus because you should, by now, know what to expect. The figure has removable parts, sports a lot of articulation, glows brighter than most action figures, and features better than expected silver highlights.

While we've looked at Infinity Edition [FOTD #2,015] and Rlyehzoth [FOTD #2,055] figures, this one is different! But how? Well, it glows - and it differs from previous Cosmic Radiation figures, too. The wings have painted silver linings this time, whereas Cosmic Radiation Mystron was left undecorated. Conversely, the suction cups on the arms are left unpainted with Cthulhu-Nautilus, while Astro-Nautilus had his fully painted in silver. Cthulhu also has silver toes and various silver eyes, coming together as a nice package.

Articulation is similarly standard. Cthulhu Nautilus has about 19 moving parts, counting some points of articulation that are useful and others that are not. Swivel knees aren't too handy to have, and the rotating wings aren't something you will ever use - but the extra tentacle movement sure is handy for making this figure continue to feel truly alien. The tail helps to prop the figure up, and I have to say it was a pain in the rear to plug in - the hole was a little tight, thanks to the paint. You might want to try cramming another Glyos peg in there before assembling the tail, thanks to the thin, slick, and flexible appendage being hard to maneuver in there.

The figure is a new-for-2018 head with bits and pieces of three other figures. The feet (and option shins) are from Orbitron. The lower waist, wings, and tail are from Mystron. The upper torso, legs, and tentacles are all from Astro Nautilus. And together, it's a pretty fantastic figure.

The figure's accessory is a glow ABS trident - and compared to the rest of the figure, it doesn't stand out much. Accessory sets included with orders from TheOuterSpaceMen.com sometimes include accessories, and a clear colorless one may be included - it stands out a bit more. I would've loved a silver one, too. If that wasn't enough, the figure includes optional shins - you can use the basic shin as assembled, or the thinner, taller Orbitron shins. I like both for different reasons. I would've loved an optional head too, but odds are that's never going to happen.

As time has worn on, these figures have seen their prices shoot up at retail. The first unpainted (or lightly painted) figures in 2010 were a mere $10 each, as were the carded, fully-painted figures. Now a bagged, lightly-painted figure is $20-$30 and a carded figure is around $35. That's inflation for you. Because I love this figure design and things that glow, I couldn't turn away from this. I wouldn't say it's a spectacular deal but I'm glad to own it. Get one if you dare.
