The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Inferno Action FigureI'd say "this is a good one," but you know they're all good ones. The Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Inferno the first time the mold has been sold as a glowing figure - that's good! What stinks is that for whatever reason, there are no new glowing red Glyos figures being made. If they jumped on it a few years earlier we'd have flaming, glowing red men from Mercury, but it was not meant to be. At least we got a glowing green one in a surprisingly vast collection of figures.

Inferno is the only figure in the entire Glyos-compatible The Outer Space Men line of over 100 figures that has no ABS parts. This one is no exception - he's cast in glow PVC with some silver paint in the shoulders, elbows, flabe wrists, flame heels, knees, thighs, belt, torso bolt, eyes, and that's pretty much it. It's more paint than your average glow figure gets, mostly because those are an excuse to cast a bare figure from a mold as its lifespan nears its conclusion - but here, it's still sharp and gorgeous. The silver details really bring the figure to life, and I can't help but wonder if the figure would be better if the interior of the helmet were painted. Regardless, it's nice - and the bolts on the belt are left bare and glow brightly.

The man from Mercury looks great - flashy, and like a refugee from a 1930s space serial. He looks great decked out in the silver space suit too (if you have one, give it a shot) and the contrasting colors bring it to life without the need to glow. Of course, you want it to glow. You're not a monster, are you?

The figure's construction has been the same since 2010, effectively riffing on the vintage Kenner 3 3/4-inch action figure design with added joints so you can swap straight arms for bent ones, or exchange pieces from one Glyos-compatible figure with another. It's a wonderful gimmick and it makes these figures perfect for the aging children of the Me Generation. You get about 20 pieces (including flames, weapons, and all that stuff) to move around and customize to your liking. I just like the default figure, but if you want to give a glowing head to another version if Inferno - maybe Phospherno, for example - you can do that now.

Considering they sold unpainted glow figures for about $10 in 2010, $20 is a bit more to swallow. With inflation and such, I can't say I blame them - I can't assume they made a ton of these, but they're all still in stock as of my writing this. This is your cue to order yourself some because they're wonderful. If you've got some cash, get some - if they're ever on sale or have some sort of bundle, do clear them out. How many action figure lines have a complete set of glowing dudes? ...besides Glyos-compatible ones, I mean? It's a treat. This is one of my favorite subcollections.
