So who are the Outer Space Men?
Rather than re-has the same intro over and over, just read about it here, then come back.
Each OSM figure is presented in collector-friendly packaging. Because these are not sold at retail, you can create a package like this where the card simply slides out without having to remove any tape.
The backing card for each figure is unique and captures the feel of the original packaging. Each figure has its own backstory, printed on the back of the card.
This figure is Astro-Nautilus, The Man from Neptune.
The figure is made out of high-density PVC, the same stuff Glyos figures are made out of. Astro-Nautilus is molded in gold with purple paint applications. The detail is sharp and clean.
Astro-Nautilus is of course nautical themed – something like a cross between an octopus and a crustacean. He’s got a large, alien head, and four articulated arms. As such, no extra arms are included with this set.
The one weapon included is a hard plastic trident that looks like it would be right at home stirring up a classic cocktail. The Trident has a unique way of being held – you actually have to thread a tentacle through the two loops.
Each OSM figure is made to be taken apart, re-arranged, and combined with not only other OSM figures, but figures in the Glyos universe as well. You can make some really interesting combinations when you start to mix and match.
Overall, I really like these figures a lot. If you think you might like them too, get them now because I am sure that quantities are limited. There are also various color versions available through the on-line shop, and there have also been convention exclusives.
