Review: Outer Space Men Astrodite Action Figure

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Astrodite Action FigureFigures like the long-awaited Astrodite make me wish the Four Horsemen's "Hopper Block" figure stands came out - she could benefit from a display stand. The exquisitely-sculpted figure made her debut at a Toy Fair-adjacent Four Horsemen-run party and exhibition where toy nerds ran rampant in 2013. We were waiting for this one for five years, continuing the proud tradition of making fans wait for The Outer Space Men. The figure finally shipped to American fans in 2018, with some mail orders taking a little while, but the important thing is she landed. Effectively a female Commander Comet [FOTD #330], Astrodite takes the same Glyos-based construction and gives you a new character whose ankles touch and make her hard to balance. It's still awesome.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Mechabon Gendrone Revolution

Onell Design Glyos Mechabon Gendrone Revolution Action FigureNew molds in Glyos are far apart these days, so a new figure like the Mechabon Gendrone Revolution is exciting. It's $20, but it does double duty as a Gobon-adjacent robot and as a new form factor for ToyFinity's RoboForce. You get a lot out of this mold, with lots of big parts and cool weapons. The last all-new mold I recall was the Villser, which I must confess I have yet to actually purchase. But the Mechabon, this is the thing. You want this.
