Outer Space Men Blue Glow Packaging

https://www.instagram.com/p/B2nEcKQHTVV/If you're a toy collector of a certain age, "Blue Stars" hold a certain meaning for you - and now it can hold new meaning with the Outer Space Men Bluestar Series revealed on Instagram. Glow in the Dark Blue Astro-Nautilus, Xodiac, and Inferno were teased - and the packaging is gorgeous.  (Gary and Mel, t-shirts please.)

These are expected around Black Friday.

Outer Space Men Sale - OSMLABORDAY2019 for 20% Off



Today is a good day to buy.  If you go to The Outer Space Men Shop, you can save 20% off with code OSMLABORDAY2019.  I just grabbed a couple of the now-in-stock Sofubi Orbitron figures the other week with another sale code - you might want to pick up anything you might be missing.

Orders above $100 get a free t-shirt. (Nobody gave me a free shirt!)    Details on Instagram.

One caveat - the glow Orbitron has jointed ankles, and the plastic there is a little softer and thinner.  For those of you who collect a lot of toys, that means only one thing - it falls over without support, usually within a couple of hours.  I would strongly recommend picking up doll stands as support for these 12 3/4-inch vinyl figures at online or a local craft hut.

Review: Onell Design Glyos OSM Colossus Rex Tyraxsis

Onell Design Glyos OSM Colossus Rex Tyraxsis Action Figure Crossovers are far and few between in this line - cosmically speaking, anyway - as it has been nearly eight months since the last one. OSM Colossus Rex Tyraxsis must have been in the works for a long time, as I remember Matt Doughty of Onell Design talking about doing a special version back in 2011 - years before the figure even saw production for the first time - and I had no idea what he had planned for the mold. According to his notes, the Tyraxsis is a dinosaur-inspired colorway, and I see it - it looks like it would fit nearly any terrible lizard toy.

Review: Outer Space Men White Star Zero Gravity Action Figure

The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men White Star Zero Gravity Action FigureManufactured in 2018 but not released until June 2019, this Outer Space Men White Star Zero Gravity ticks a box. With it, your collection of white plastic figures to customize is completed! Probably. That makes for a stellar collection of 21 white-as-white-can-be figures, the irony of which is not lost with this character.

At Last: Outer Space Men White Star Zero Gravity

https://theouterspacemen.com/product/zero-gravity-whitestar-edition/He's here! Finish up the (current) complete roster of Glyos-compatible 3 3/4-inch scale White Star action figures with Zero Gravity.   He's $25.00.

Just a few remain, and according to the official Instagram: "The last 3 3/4” Glyos OSM from the mind of Mel Birnkrant is live inside the Webstore. This is the 21st and last Whitestar figure to finish off the collection. While there are some major surprises this summer and into the fall; here is the ultimate installment to end one hell of a series."

Review: Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Cthulhu Nautilus Action Figure


The Outer Space Men, LLC Outer Space Men Cosmic Radiation Cthulhu Nautilus Action FigureI probably don't need to review Cosmic Radiation Cthulhu Nautilus because you should, by now, know what to expect. The figure has removable parts, sports a lot of articulation, glows brighter than most action figures, and features better than expected silver highlights.

Toy Fair 2019 - Technically - The Outer Space Men!

http://www.16bit.com/toyfair2019-osm.shtml
While there was no actual presence of The Outer Space Men at Toy Fair 2019, I did visit Gary Schaeffer and Mel Birnkrant to chat and take pictures of the new Sofubi Orbitron test shots.  (I did mention the Diversus edition mouth paint application is missing, so don't @me.)
