Toy Fair 2012 – 4 Horsemen’s TOYPOCALYPSE 2
I had the pleasure of attending the 2nd annual TOYPOCALYPSE this evening at Toy Tokyo Underground. This year the gallery space was turned into a celebration of ‘The Outer Space Men’. The display featured concept art, unreleased OSM, an exclusive OSM set, a display of custom OSM as well as many vintage OSM toys. Personally, I was blown away by some of the customs at the show – the He-Man OSM was a fantastic joining of universes.
In attendance at the show were the Horsemen themselves, Mel Birnkrant – the creator of the Outer Space Men, and Abdi, Sucklor and Kymia from Bravo’s ‘Work of Art’ and Scott ‘ToyGuru’ Neitlich from Mattel.
Other lines with pieces on display included several Masters of the Universe Classics 2-ups, Scarabus and 7th Kingdom figures. Check the gallery out below for an incomplete look at the show. Due to the crowds, it was difficult to photograph everything at the reception. But this should give you a feeling for the event – here’s hoping for a TOYPOCALYPSE 3 next year!
