When I photographed the Four Horsemen’s area at SDCC the other day I somehow missed the Outer Space Men. I’ve now corrected that error, so see all the good stuff below!
Earlier today on the Four Horsemen’s facebook page they announced the preorders for the SDCC exclusive Outer Space Men preorders going live this Sunday at 6PM EST. This years OSM exclusives are:
Each of these figures will be molded in clear, colored plastic and included clear colored accessories. Images of the exact figures are pending, but below you’ll see the figures in the set. Use your imaginations to see them in clear, colored plastic…or just wait until official images are released!
Action Figure Xpress has posted all their SDCC Exclusive items for preorder and, in addition, to the Icon Heroes and Diamond items already revealed – they have three additional items. Links to both preorders are here: attendee preorder / nonattendee preorder
Marvel Minimates Deadpools Assemble Set of 4
Wade “Deadpool” Wilson is an assassin-for-hire, and his job sends him on a lot of crazy adventures! Whether he’s traveling back in time to fight in World War II, wielding a mystical hammer against the Norse God of Thunder, stealing high-tech suits of armor from Iron Man, or dressing up in his best friend’s clothes, there’s always fun to be had, and lessons to be learned. Includes Cable-Pool, Captain Ameri-Pool, Thor-Pool, and Phonics-Killer Iron Deadpool.
Marvel Minimates Iron Man 3 Hall of Armors 10-Pack
The Iron Man armor is the most advanced weapons system on the planet; it is also an extension of the technology that keeps inventor Tony Stark alive. From the jury-rigged Mark 1 to the self-assembling Mark 42, each iteration of the armor has run off the same arc reactor that keeps deadly shrapnel from piercing Tony’s heart. But Tony’s most important armor is the business suit he wears as the face of Stark Industries, the company he runs with CEO Pepper Potts.

The Outer Space Men have become a bit of an SDCC tradition, as they launched back in 2010 at the show. This year not only has an exclusive set, but on display are brand new figures – that had been announced at the Four Horsemen’s Toypacolypse event. Check out the Outer Space Men (and Lady!) in the gallery below.
For a third consecutive year, the Four Horsemen will be offering an Outer Space Men debut as their 2012 SDCC exclusive. This year they are offering a pair of figures (Orbitron & Gemini) and their first OSM deluxe – Cyclops. While the details aren’t explicit yet – it is likely that they will be offered at the Action Figures XPress booth. Check out the image below.
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!
The Four Horsemen have announced a set NYCC exclusive Outer Space Men. For the show they’ll be offering an exclusive color of their waves 3 and 4 figures, similar to their SDCC offerings. While images of all four figures aren’t yet released, they are making their way on to the Four Horsemen’s site, which you can see here. So far they’ve posted images of beta Phase wave 3 Mystron and Commander Comet, which I’ve posted below.
One of last year’s favorite items for me were the first 2 releases in the Four Horsemen’s Outer Space Men line. The series returns in force to Comic-con this year, and the gallery below has images of all the product on hand. This year’s exclusives (consisting of translucent versions of waves 3 and 4) look fantastic and I can’t wait to get them!
Thanks to twitter user @Wofepicness, who directed me to this image – here’s an updated look at the Four Horsemen’s SDCC exclusive Wave 3 and 4 Outer Space Men. Check them out in all their clear goodness!
Following on the success of last years Outer Space Men SDCC exclusives, the Four Horsemen will be offering an SDCC exclusive version of their wave 3 and 4 figures. Wave 3 consists of Alpha 7 and Electron+ while wave 4 is Commander Comet and Mystron. Similar to last years’ set – these look to be mostly translucent figures. The Horsemen have shared previews of the Wave 4 exclusives on their blog – check them out below.
A select number of sets will be available for pre-order Friday at 9PM Eastern on their store.
