While we happily snapped up the Alpha & Beta Phase versions of the third and fourth waves of Outer Space Men, we’ve been (somewhat) patiently waiting for the much anticipated, fully painted, Infinity Editions! The pre-orders for the full color set kick off Friday night in a special sale at StoreHorsemen.
It wasn’t that long ago that convention exclusives were a rare commodity. These days, collectors have to plan for multiple exclusives from multiple shows. It kinda sucks, but I do enjoy when we get cool toys for our trouble. Case in point: the NYCC 2011 Exclusive Beta Phase Outer Space Men.
We’re kicking off a new tradition today. For the next few weeks (at least), Thursdays belong to Glyos! One, cause they’re awesome and two, because of all the lines I buy, I’m most behind on Glyos reviews. Let’s kick things off with the Outer Space Men Xodiac: Gylaxia Command Special Edition.
Was anyone else surprised by how quickly NYCC has become toy relevant? In years past, there might’ve been some toy news revealed at NYCC, but with Hasbro making a bigger commitment with NYCC-specific exclusives and Mattel trotting out a few reveals, last weekend ended up much more exciting than I’d expected.
Admittedly, I’m a little behind on reviews. I’ve got a few I’ve wanted to get to for awhile, but my schedule’s been rather hectic since SDCC. Yeah... I’ve still got SDCC Exclusive reviews… scary, huh? Let’s knock one off the list today: Alpha Phase Outer Space Men Waves Three and Four.
Hopefully, you've all taken the time to explore the wonderful MelBirnkrant.Com since the Outer Space Men returned to Earth for last year's San Diego Comic Con. It was always a great resource for the history of the Outer Space Men, but Mel has put together a new exhibit that celebrates their return and looks to their future!
One of the coolest things to happen last year was the return of The Outer Space Men. I admit, I didn't know much about them at first, but the more I learned about them, the more excited I became. We've looked at the three exclusive editions but now the real deal, the Infinity Edition, is finally up for review.
