Today, well tonight now, I’m taking a look at the figures in the Outer Space Men Four Horsemen Cosmic Creators Wave One, Megamorpho & Neonautilus. I know it sounds like a lot of proper nouns all strung together, so let’s focus on the key words: cool toys, great sculpts, bright colors.
A lot of new Outer Space Men cropped up over the summer. The new SDCC exclusive Alpha Phase editions of Wave 5 & the Deluxe Cyclops, the “new & improved” 2.0 versions of the Wave 1 & 2 Infinity Editions, and the Four Horsemen’s entry into the Cosmic Creators series.
The SDCC exclusives caught my attention first. Those new sculpts are fantastic and I’m eagerly anticipating seeing them in full color, but the sleeper hit from the Summer releases is easily the Cosmic Creators Four Horsemen Editions. (Man, we’re going to have to work on some acronyms here…).
In this review, I’m taking a quick look at the two figures that comprise “Wave One”. Now technically, there isn’t a Wave 1 or 2 when it comes to the Cosmic Creators sets as they’re bundled as a group of four at StoreHorsemen.com, but it’s a little easier on me to break these guys up in two groups of two, so I’m using the “Wave 1” designation the figures have when they’re sold as Infinity Editions.
As did the Mel Birnkrant editions, these Cosmic Creators reuse the standard resealable packaging as the Infinity Editions. And, this set comes signed by each of the Four Horsemen as well as team members Shane Dittsworth, Owen “O-Dawg” Oertling, & Sherri Lyn Cook! It’s always cool to have something signed and thanks to the resealable nature of the packaging, I will be keeping this around – unlike most of the toy packaging that stands between me and my stuff.
If you’re interested in my thoughts on the basic sculpts beyond the fact I think they’re top notch or any of the basics for the Wave 1 & 2 OSM, head back to early 2011 for my Infinity Edition review of these two figures. When it comes to this pair the reason to pick them up is largely for the new deco. Continue to Page 2…

Great review. Sweet toys. Can’t afford to collect ’em.
The Creators do run a bit higher than the normal fare. The 4H ones aren’t too much more though. I bet the shipping factor into that too though.
No, mate, I mean I can’t afford to collect ANY of ’em. Lack of spare funds and space, the twin banes of any collector’s life.
They do look so pretty….
when I fist saw these guys at Toypacalyps 2 in Feb they blew my mind right out of the water. Great review
Me too! Well the pics anyway, they were kinda tucked in with the customs during the Toypocalypse show. Glad we finally got ’em!
This was a rather disappointing review. Where’s the black ilight photos? Pixel Dan didn’t do it either . With colors like those you know black light pics should be pretty wicked.
The black light doesn’t do anything for most of them. It only really highlights one of the four and he wasn’t in this review… 😉
These guys keep getting better and better. The best thing is that they are a nice size so you can collect a lot!
I like that they don’t take up much space too. 🙂
