Way back in 2009 I interview Gary Schaeffer about his awesome display of the 1968 action figures called The Outer Space Men at the Big Apple Con and he’s been on his grind promoting and recreating them ever since! In his latest set of Outer Space Men, Gary got the original toy creator Mel Birnkrant to make a totally new set of Outer Space Men action figures for the fans. This has got to be a toy collectors dream to get a new set of Outer Space Men Toys, done by the original creator after 40+ years!!! Check out the official press release below:
This past weekend marked an auspicious and monumental event in the infamous Outer Space Men Saga. The iconic and sought after rubber bendable action figures which were only on the store shelves for one year in 1968 are some of the most hunted action figures in the world. The premiums that each figure carries are like none other.
The Outer Space Men LLc along with the toys’ creator Mel Birnkrant for the first time ever collaborated on a four character set of four Glyos based action figures using the most incredible grouping of specialized paint masks that Mr. Birnkrant at almost 76 years old developed.
Nearly 6 months in the works; these figures arrived at the Outer Space Men official headquarters last Thursday and within 48 hours hundreds of sets were sent to points all over the globe into the hands of collectors who clamor for the Outer Space Men figures.
The response to the new set of figures is extraordinary and is clogging the social networking super highways with the amazing reviews and thank you’s to Mr. Birnkrant for designing such an amazing set of figures once again.
There are still sets of figures left for purchase. As a free bonus the OSM LLc is adding to each set a free coffee mug featuring the 7 original rubber figures from 1968. The mug is a sensational addition that the CEO of the OSM is throwing in. Do not waste a minute; head on over to the official Outer Space Men website; www.theouterspacemen.com and get yourself a set before they are gone. The sets are limited to the smallest run ever at only 200 sets and each removable card is hand signed and numbered by Mel Birnkrant himself.
These figures are not to be missed; they are some of the most amazing ever created in the OSM line of toys since they began re-creating them in 2010. For questions or help contact Gary Schaeffer at: firstname.lastname@example.org
