The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Bluestar Inferno Action FigureSince the 2010 relaunch The Outer Space Men has been pretty stop and go - periods of inactivity are followed by huge bursts of releases, and Bluestar Inferno kicked off the impressive-but-pricey blue glow series late last year. As you no doubt know, the blue glow plastic used by this series (and all Glyos or Onell Design figures) tends to shine incredibly brightly. A short exposure to UV or sunlight means hours of blue glow, be it dim or brightly depending on when you examine it. I've seen these figures glow after eight hours... just not incredibly brightly when hour eight rolls around.

It's a great mold, and the blue coloring looks good here. The clear blue Holiday Edition Inferno [FOTD #93] is similar to this release, but it was closer to crystal clear as opposed to this milky blue glow color. Glow plastic doesn't let you see every last detail of the sculpting, but thanks to the painted blue elements you will see a few pieces pop out. It's the same paint mask used for the 2017 Cosmic Radiation Inferno [FOTD #1,825], so completists will no doubt note some similarities here.

The four-inch figure is nicely jointed with a removable helmet and flame "backpack." The blaster fits in the fists nicely, and you can swap out "straight arms" for "bent arms" as a nice alternative to including an expensive hinge joint in the elbow. Just don't lose them! Inferno has about 13 meaningful points of articulation, each of which is connected via a Glyos peg that can be popped apart so you can swap pieces with other figures. The chest bolt element is also removable. If you want to mix blue and green pieces up for the ultimate glow experience, you can, and it looks pretty great.

In addition to the normal stuff in the package, the Outer Space Men store also tossed in a bonus bag of clear, colorless ABS plastic parts - and I can appreciate that. None of them are specific to the all-PVC Inferno figure, but it adds to the mix-and-match capabilities of this growing line.

My only real gripe is price - these figures are wonderful, but inflation and rising labor, transportation, and materials cost mean a $10 figure from 2010 now costs $25. It's nice that we get some packaging this time around, but I certainly did drag my feet getting these even though I knew they would be awesome additions to my glowing horde of action figures. I would recommend getting at least one of the Bluestar figures - which one, that's up to you, they're all good - just to get a glimpse of the materials and how they work. It's also nice that they're the perfect compliments to your retro 3 3/4-inch action figure collections with great sculpting. Given the disruption in manufacturing as of late, $25 may well be "the good old days" if things don't pick up.
