Review: Outer Space Men Bluestar Astro-Nautilus Action Figure

http://16bit.com/fotd/200526-osm-gitd-2019-blue-astro-nautilus.shtmlYou know the drill - The Outer Space Men are awesome. These 3 3/4-inch action figures are magical and got wildly expensive to make in recent years, so the Bluestar Astro-Nautilus is $25 today when you used to be able to get a fully-painted and carded set of four figures for about $40. That's inflation for you. This mold is one of the ones they used in 2010, and it's a gorgeous design - is it worth $25 though? ...well, I bought one.

Review: Outer Space Men Bluestar Inferno Action Figure

http://www.16bit.com/fotd/200423-osm-gitd-2019-blue-inferno.shtml
Since the 2010 relaunch The Outer Space Men has been pretty stop and go - periods of inactivity are followed by huge bursts of releases, and Bluestar Inferno kicked off the impressive-but-pricey blue glow series late last year. As you no doubt know, the blue glow plastic used by this series (and all Glyos or Onell Design figures) tends to shine incredibly brightly. A short exposure to UV or sunlight means hours of blue glow, be it dim or brightly depending on when you examine it. I've seen these figures glow after eight hours... just not incredibly brightly when hour eight rolls around.

Healey Made Nods a Classic in Raider (Hunter) Drop

https://healeymade.com/collections/live-shop
You missed it!  Healeymade's Raider (Hunter) went up at 4:20 PM Eastern and sold out in short order.  The retro-style figure positively nails the looks of toys from the 1970s and 1980s, with deco based on one in particular.      It was $25.

Oddly, the Commander figure was out of stock at the time the new figure went live - and now is  back in stock.  If you've never picked up this particular mold, it's recommended.  Check here for availability.

Battle Tribes and Healey Made Drops Incoming

New!   Healey Made and Battle Tribes shops will be getting updated with new toys this week.

The Healey Made Instagram confirmed a drop would be on Monday, April 20 but not what or when.  His previous figure is the Commander Raider, and if it's still in stock Monday I may order one.  I have the Shadow Raider and it's a gem.

Far less of a mystery is the Chuck Norris and Ninja-influenced Battle Tribes drop.   3 new figures with tons of gear and heads go up at 6:00 PM Pacific on 4/22.  Some older figures are still available.
