The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Bluestar Xodiac Action FigureWho loves more of the same, but different? Bluestar Xodiac brings you the same basic color layout of the Cosmic Radiation edition, but now with blue glow plastic and light blue painted highlights - and two helmets. You get a bit more here than a basic Xodiac, but it also costs more than double what the figure did in its debut 10 years ago. Is it worth it? If you like blue glow, yes, yes it is.

With the same paint layout as Cosmic Radiation Xodiac [FOTD #1,915], you know what to expect here. It's a 3 3/4-inch figure with articulated limbs that pop apart at each joint, with a neck that doesn't really move and each limb moving in at least one place. You can swap parts with other glow or non-glow figures, and customize it to fit your needs with accessory sets or the included bent alternate arms or variant helmets.

If you've been keeping up with Glyos, you know red glow charges quickly but burns out fast. Green lasts a good time from a moderate charge. Blue can glow overnight if exposed to sunlight at the right time - it's really amazing. It's dim, but it still glows hours later, and that's part of the novelty of re-buying this figure yet again. The form factor is a proven one that works, but for those with no Xodiacs or a love of blue glow plastic this is the kind of thing you're going to want to buy.

There aren't many painted special details here - a few bits on the beard, a Saturn logo on the chest, and of course the "joints" are painted too. Those bendy-flexy looking elements are based on the bendable joints from the figure that Colorforms releases fifty years ago, which moved similarly to Major Matt Mason and not entirely unlike Gumby.

I've been writing about these since the 2010 debut of this mold, and I still think they're the perfect partners to a real vintage Star Wars or new ReAction Figure collection. They fit in a lot of those older vehicles, they stand up nicely, and they're decidedly mid-century fun. If it's still available - especially if it's on sale - this isn't a bad figure to pick up. The design may not have the tentacles of Astro-Nautilus or the being-on-fire of Inferno, but it works as a good design with excellent accessories. I love the Glyos plug on the back of the ray gun, and the Saturn staff is just perfect.
