The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Luna Eclipse Action FigureWhen I got a bunch of The Outer Space Men figures at once, I usually held one back to review later when something new came out. Newness kind of stopped for this line. While more Blue Star blue glow figures are on the way, Luna Eclipse was one of the final figures to introduce new tooling. The head is new, otherwise this figure is basically Terra Firma [FOTD #944] with a new head and new colors. Ohpromatem also shares most of her construction with this figure, and Horrorscope shares much of it as well.

The Outer Space Men was a line I fell in love with as a kid when I was flipping through old issues of Tomart's Action Figure Digest. When I first read about them, they were already worth hundreds of dollars and as a youngster who balked at paying $40 for a figure, that was never going to happen. The Glyos version of the line kicked off in 2010 with very reasonable $10 figures, which creeped up a buck here and there under The Four Horsemen's management and then went as high as $30 for carded figures after the license reverted back to The Outer Space Men LLC. They made some neat stuff, but most of what we've been getting have been repaints and very expensive repaints at that. That's why a figure like this Luna Eclipse is exciting, although she was made less exciting by a Cosmic Radiation edition - which glows in the dark, but is painted slightly differently. There's a lot of awesomeness in this line, but when you take a step back you can also point to a lot of repetition. (And repaints don't necessarily have to be repetitive.)

The oldest parts in this release date back to 2014, and they're typical good Glyos-compatible fare. She stands, she sits, you can pop her apart, and you can swap her body parts with others if you like. The figure is cast in glow-in-the-dark PVC, with a few painted elements like the fake accordion joints, her gloves, and her boots. The most inspired deco choice was on her head - not only is the face painted particularly well for a head the size of a pea, but the exposed glow plastic hair adds an element of personality to her that we rarely see. I can't name another figure with glow hair next to painted hair and a glow face off the top of my head, but I'm sure someone out there will remind me.

The 3 3/4-inch scale is quite shapely, drawing inspiration from adult-oriented funny pages from the middle of the last century. It's also worth noting her moon belly ornament is removable if you want to swap it out. (But not the boobs. Those are part of the torso, you sick freak.)

She has some trouble standing upright and could really use a display stand, but you can prop her up with the American Moon flag (Lunarian?) accessory too. Her Levity blaster looks really cool, now incorporating glowing ABS plastic elements in addition to lots of silver and bronze paint. The multi-part jet pack still looks great, and the glowing helmet looks even better than I remember when I took these photos.

Unsurprisingly, she glows well. The very worst glow-in-the-dark Glyos figure will shine brighter than almost anything anyone else manufactures, although Super7 has been doing some wonderful things as of late. If you're a fan of glow figures, this is one of only two painted figures in this line with painted faces and good glow elements. (Gamma-X Infinity Edition's ability to glow is, well, uh, terrible.)

$30 was a lot of money for a repaint (with a new head) of a $13 figure, but if you make a figure limited enough, does it matter? Right now you can't even buy her - there are no active or ended listings on eBay. I have no idea how many were manufactured, but I would wager "not enough" would be a good guesstimate. If you stumble on her for a price you think is fair, $30 for a neato glow-in-the-dark figure is nothing these days. I really wish the line continued to grow and expand, but for the last few years all we've seen are new colorways and there hasn't been a lot of freshness - but we did get a lot of cool glowing figures. Hopefully 2022 will lead to some nice new paint jobs or new characters! You can still get carded Zero Gravity, Astrodite, and Cthulhu Nautilus at The Outer Space Men Store though - you may want to do that.
