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.

The Next Outer Space Men Sofubi - The Man from Uranus!

On Instagram, we have confirmation that the second 12-inch vinyl figure for The Outer Space Men is Orbitron!  There's no release date yet and I believe the preview photo is just a black and white shot of an existing figure, but that's still news!

The Outer Space Men - Now 12-Inch Sofubi Figure!

Coming soon to Five Points Fest, this 12-inch Colossus Rex looks pretty gosh-darned stunning. (And yes I want one.)  Take a gander!  More info as we have it.  It should be on sale June 2-3 at the convention in Brooklyn Expo Center.

The Colossus Rex 12” vinyl is magnificent. This is the 1968 blue variant color which as many of you know are super rare as these were a mistake that the factory accidentally made. A hundred or so in blue (the original is green) made it out and into America 50 years ago and today is one of the more sought out OSM variation. In 5 weeks at the #fivepointsfest this first of many new OSM in this format will make his appearance for the first time. There are 5 total colorways including tons of blanks for the artists to go berserk on. This is the most important new OSM in 50 years and the 50th anniversary celebration continues. I want to thank @cluttermagazine for their tireless and incredible perseverance in creating this work of art. Josh and Miranda have proven themselves as consummate artists, technicians and the best partners I’ve ever had. This collaboration will continue forever as together we will create an army of vinyl OSM. #outerspacemen #melbirnkrant #actionfigures #spacetoys #sciencefiction #cooltoys #customtoys #futureouterspacemen #alpha7 #astrodite #astronautilus #colossusrex #commandercomet #cyclops #electron #gammax #gemini #horroscope #inferno #jackasteroid #metamorpho #mystron #ohpromatem #orbitron #terrafirma #xodiac #prototype #starwars #sofubi

Review: Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Xodiac Action Figure


The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Xodiac Action FigureFor a toy line that has proven popular, The Outer Space Men captures the imagination with strange designs. Like this one. The Cosmic Radiation Xodiac is the second Xodiac figure to have a beard, so I reached out to series designer Mel Birnkrant to ask what the deal was with the beard - is it meat? Is it hair? "It's both!" He told me - hey, that works.

Review: Onell Design Glyos Astro-Nautilus Redborg Syndicate


Onell Design Glyos Astro-Nautilus Redborg Syndicate Action FigureI'm a big fan of the Outer Space Men figures, especially the occasional crossovers done with Onell Design. Astro-Nautilus Redborg Syndicate was stamped out in clear yellow plastic with a hefty slathering of paint and a nice armory, too. It also costs over twice what the original release did in 2010.

Review: The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men White Star Gemini Action Figure


The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men White Star Gemini Action FigureThis one came out fairly late. Sometimes you never know what you want until you get it. I liked seeing the various Outer Space Men in various colors, but the pigment-free versions left me a little cold. I rather liked the three figure designs that didn't previously get the White Star treatment, more than many of the ones that did. When we were teased that White Star Gemini would exist, part of me was a little miffed it wasn't in color. But I'd be lying if I said it didn't turn out nicely - there's a lot of blue here that breaks up the white. It's good. I won't say it's as amazing as some of the other Gemini they've put out, but it's very good and it does a nice job of showing you the sculpting. Unlike, say, the clear ones.

Review: The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Metamorpho Action Figure


The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Metamorpho Action FigureDoes this one look familiar to you? The Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Metamorpho is new, but a glow in the dark Metamorpho was sold way back in July of 2010 as the very first release of this line, a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive. I reviewed it shortly before Figure of the Day launched - and it's different. This new one has a greenish hue rather than a bone one, and has completely different decoration.  

This new one is better.
