Review: Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Edition Gamma-X
When the announcement of new glowing "Cosmic Radiation" figures came up, I commented that these would be in addition to three existing glowing figures. I was told that the first Gamma-X [FOTD #939] didn't glow, but it does - just not very well. Regardless of the confusion, it's telling because it proves that Cosmic Radiation Edition Gamma-X 100% needed to exist. The original 2014 figure was a top-notch update of the original Colorforms prototype, matching the color and everything. It just didn't match the original action feature - that is, to glow in the dark. If you've bought both figures, you've got one that looks right and one that looks right, and this new 2016 convention exclusive is actually $1 cheaper than its dim-glowing counterpart. I'm not saying it's 100% better, but it's different enough that I think you've got reason to potentially buy both if you're so inclined.
