New Outer Space Men Vehicles Coming

https://www.instagram.com/p/BoH9EQRFT52/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=fh3xcrrrvb78In a bit of news that's both welcome and ridiculous, the official Outer Space Men Instagram has announced 12-inch scale vehicles.  Now that 3 3/4-inch figures are about $30 and 12-inch vinyl figures are $120 - so a vehicle could be easily $200 or more.
No specifics or release dates were given, but do pay heed to the warning shot that fans of the line could be tapped for a significant wad of cash to keep the line complete going forward.
If for any reason they don't make it out in that giant size, I for one would be very happy to see some of the mini vehicle concepts from 50  years ago realized in a cheaper, less space-intensive format.  I'm excited to hopefully get my 12-inch sofubi figures soon, but if that line actually continues to completion I assume it will take up far more space than I would like - and that's before vehicles or alternate colorways come in to play.

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: The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cthulhu Nautilus Action Figure


The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cthulhu Nautilus Action FigureAbsolutely no toy line has the right to employ the phrase "a long time coming" like The Outer Space Men. The line is 50 years old, and some of the toys took nearly 40 years from concept to product. The 45 years it took to get Gamma-X makes Cthulhu Nautilus seem speedy by comparison - the figure was teased in 2011 as a concept drawing, while the coloring and head were based on toymaker Mel Birnkrant's massive imagination. In addition to The Outer Space Men, Birnkrant also came up with dozens of other lines like the unrealized Monstro-City, and this 2018 Cthulhu Nautilus head looks a heck of a lot like a Cthulhu-inspired creature from that toy pitch.
