The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Commander Comet Action FigureThere are lots of glowing Outer Space Men now, some of which make more sense than others. Me, I want 'em all because I love glowing things. Cosmic Radiation Commander Comet a sensible idea, given that an angel-looking thing could make sense as a glowing, ethereal being. It's just like the other ones, but it glows. And has silver paint. It's good.

Commander Comet's jaunt to the land of glow figures is not unlike his companions. The 3 3/4-inch-ish figure has silver on his fingers, his accordion joints, and part of the chest triangle - a departure from the norm, where it's usually painted or not. Now, it's both. The figure's neck is painted, as are his hair and eyes - this gives him a more alien, Adventure People X-Ray Man-like look. Metal hair isn't something you see every day, nor are the creepy metal eyes. It's a fantastic look, and as the only human-looking character to get the Cosmic Radiation treatment so far it's a treat.

The ghostly wings plug in to a hole in his back via the ever-present Glyos plug, but on mine it was a tight fit. I wouldn't necessarily point to the glow plastic, but it was a bit of a forceful installation. The figure's clear colorless bubble helmet fits perfectly, and I had no problems mucking around with his alternate "bent" arms. It's a great workaround for articulation, and everything fits perfectly. Sure, it's more effort than bending an elbow, but it looks sharp.

What really surprised me was the thought put in to painting the accessories. The winged staff has a silver triangle on it, but only a painted border - the center of it still glows, as does the handle and the wings. It's a departure from the previous versions which had a triangle in the middle in a different color, and it matches his chest ornament nicely. Even nicer is the crossbow - it's cast in glow PVC, but the arrow was left unpainted so that it can still glow. That, I love.

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Commander Comet Action FigureFor those keeping track, you might remember something about how these are made - specifically, a series' worth of accessories are on a single sprue. This means that glowing helmets (instead of clear) and clear staffs (instead of glowing) exist and were run - we got samples of them in a baggie with the order, but right now it doesn't seem to be advertised as a bonus with all orders. This goes for Alpha 7, Electron+, and Mystron too - none of the year one guys seemed to have bonus parts in my order.

As this Commander Comet was inspired by a toy from 50 years ago, it's great that it also looks like something from a bygone generation. There are precious few glowing toys at the toy store, so seeing something like this is a rare treat. The alien-like combo platter of silver and glow really works, and the staff reminds me a bit of the infamous Interocitor. I like this one, and if you're into these lines you know the drill. Get one. Get 'em all.
