The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Bluestar Metamorpho Action FigureAs shared experiences go, toys are great. Unfortunately The Outer Space Men are one not shared by my peers - they're before my time, but I love the designs as sci-fi space race-era toys go ever since I saw them in Action Figure Digest, which was a real magazine a million years ago. For this reason, Bluestar Metamorpho is a fun, weird figure that stands on his own.

With the same paint layout as Cosmic Radiation Metamorpho [FOTD #1,885], Bluestar gives you the same basic figure cast in a magic blue plastic with non-glowing blue painted highlights. At first glance I thought there was some new painted bits, but I was wrong - it's just how the light reacts with the plastic. The figure's belt has unpainted dots, which look like they're painted black. They aren't - but since no light goes through the painted briefs, it just seems that way in a dark room. The pale blue body has some pale blue highlight on the fake joints, the hands, and of course the eyes.

One of the few shortcomings of just about any glow figure is that the plastic tends to be pale, absorbing light and taking detail with it. The painted elements do wonders to highlight key landmarks like fingers and the soles of the feet, but everything else starts to fade away, making the silhouette of the figure incredibly important. While Astro-Nautilus has four arms and Inferno has a giant flame on his back, Metamorpho is just a space suit with a knob on his head - a classic design, to be sure, but not one that stands out among his companions. Thanks to the lack of adornment, Metamorpho can stand fairly well on his ample boots. He's on my desk and it's not going to fall over! The figure has swappable arms - bent and straight - as well as two ray guns you can put in his fists.

The main gimmick from the mold is a rotating face, predating Man-E-Faces by almost a decade and a half. The concept is simple - twist the knob on the helmet, and you'll see an ape face, a reptile face, or another alien face. It's great to have options - but the detail does vanish inside that helmet. the painted faces of other versions of Metamorpho pop more easily, but I still appreciate that the feature is here. You just won't see much difference other than unique eye shapes unless you light it well and get in real close.

By now you've had several chances to buy this mold over the last decade, and a few of them are still available for decent pricing. Despite the low edition sizes, there aren't many people that know about this line so you can probably get many of them for a price that won't make you too nervous. This Bluestar version was more expensive than most, but it's not like you have too many blue glowing figures in your collection just yet. I'd recommend it if you have a painted version of Metamorpho, and even if you don't.
