Whoa, what?!

I love the thunderbolt on Inferno's chest plate; it's real slick.

Josh alluded to fan antipathy towards the FH in his review(s). All I know of them is their work on MOTU, but it all seems like solid work to me. Why the ambivalence?

I think the antipathy was solely my own, I know people love them and seem to have a huge following. These OSM have made me pay more attention to them now for sure.

I've always had respect for 4H. Their reboot of the MOTU toys was very solid, the MOTU classics are fantastic, and the outer space men have me frothing with joy.

With all due respect, I'd rather not imagine you frothing with joy. Maybe you've been bitten by a wild animal recently?

I've been putting this off and putting it off, but you've finally managed to get me to get off my butt and order these. I've not been terribly interested in any new toys lately, but for the price, I don't see how I can say no. And the "forever mint" packaging, for a packaging snob like me, cinches it.

Space Men Colors.

So cool you're reviewing these. I thought everyone was ignoring them until now.
Last year at the Comic Cons, they release the variant colors, but in bags w/ header cards, not the card and bubble of the regular release.

The NewYork Comic Con set was one of the few things in the whole Con that I was prepared for ahead, and had fun chasing down the vendors that had the exclusive. I believe it was BluFin, and ToyTokyo.
One of those booths had a nice display cabinet with some examples of the original toys, and artwork/ads/posters, alongside these new editions, so anyone could see the history and compare.

Very cool update, with nostalgic style packing art.
Half the size of the originals, but so much more you can do with em!
