The Final Outer Space Men for NYCC 2011 Revealed

The final two reveals! Electron+ will be cast in a clear blue, while Alpha 7 is a little green man. Previously, he was a little blue-green man, so it's not a tremendous difference. But it's different.

Details on how these will be sold are said to be approaching next week. Obviously, it's in New York, but things like prices and booth numbers are to follow.

Outer Space Men Orbitron Resculpt Revealed

Over on The Four Horsemen's Fantastic Exclusive Forums you can find the very first pictures of the presumably final sculpt of Orbitron, the Man from Uranus.

It's a slightly different sculpt than the one shown at Comic-Con in San Diego last July, better and funkier. The hands are open claws, as opposed to the closed fists most of the figures have. There's also a waist joint, and the posting makes confirmation of a 14th "Space Man," which could well be Pheyden from the Glyos line or something completely new-- or one of those swell head variants they've been teasing over the past few months! I'm looking forward to it.

Review: The Outer Space Men Alpha Phase Astro-Nautilus, the Man from Neptune

When I first saw pictures of the original 1960s bendable figures, I never assumed that I'd own a version of Astro-Nautilus, let alone one in a low-cost action figure form. This translucent purple edition was the very first release of the mold, and legend has it that the edition size is about 300 pieces.
