The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Electron+ Action FigureI know what you're saying - wasn't there already a glow in the dark version of Electron+? Yes. This new Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Electron+ is cast in a slightly different (and better) glow plastic with more paint highlights and for the first time, bent arms. The original release, for reasons not ever truly revealed, just had the straight arms only. If you just need a glow Electron+, either version is great - but if you want a matching glow set or the very best version you can get, get this new one.

It's worth noting that the original Alpha Phase Electron+ [FOTD #258] had painted silver eyes just like this new one. That was also the only paint it had - the 2017 version has painted silver rings, hoses, and the most surprising addition to me was the painted fingers. It adds a bit to the figure's look, giving it a slightly more grounded look than the ghostly original. The accessories are painted silver, but cast in glow plastic - note the "electricity" on the staff, the tip of the blaster, and the central disc on the chest. These are all glow-in-the-dark ABS plastic, while the helmet was cast in clear colorless plastic. Clear colorless accessories (and glow helmets) were also produced, but it isn't 100% clear how they will be distributed. I can tell you I've got samples of them, though, and they're cool.

Electron+ the man from Pluto, which used to be a planet until people started getting angry at Neil deGrasse Tyson for telling us that the moon is a more massive object than the former ninth planet. Nobody likes hearing that their favorite planet - or a fact they learned in school - isn't as accurate as it once was, but the important thing is we're all learning something about Pluto now. It's also a pretty safe bet there aren't any bubble-helmeted energy beings on Pluto, so this figure is also arguably scientifically wrong... but it's a nice figure. The arms can be removed and swapped for straight or bent elbows, mercifully included with a glow Electron+ for the very first time.

The figure design is a great update of the original concept, but it's worth noting that this Glyos-compatible action figure can't sit. The design has a chest plate hanging in front of the lower waist piece, restricting leg movement. They can't really swing forward at all, but everything else can move fairly freely. The core figure is made of about 13 pieces, sporting about 12 points of articulation. It stands well - it even has painted silver soles - plus silver rings around the ankles. And painted knobs on the head. They didn't skimp.

Sure, the original Alpha Phase Electron+ was $10. Inflation stinks. It might be a bit of a stretch to re-buy a glow Electron+ nearly 6 years later, but if you missed it? It's good. The fact that they had to run two sprues of accessories, the rise of the middle class, and the paint probably helped contribute to the slightly higher price. This is unquestionably the better of the two figures, so if you just want a glow Electron+ get this one. If you stumble on the other one on the cheap somehow, it's good too - just remember that this one is better.
