We just got test shots in of Outer Space Men, Orbitron and Gemini and our first Deluxe Outer Space Man, Cyclops in at the studio yesterday and we couldn't wait any longer to show them off to you!
Test shots are the first test run out of the steel molds using spare plastic at the factory so we can approve or correct any of the molding issues before the figures go into full production. These three are cast in a really cool purple/blue color that the photos aren't really doing justice to. Even though this color isn't what we have planned for the Alpha Phase wave of these three figures, it's such a striking color that we may have to utilize it in the OSM line somewhere down the line.
There are a few minor issues here and there that will need to be tweaked with these figures before they go into full production, but all in all we're incredibly impressed with the level of these. They're really beautiful and we were amazed at the heft of Cyclops when you hold him in your hand. As you can see from the photos below, he's massive compared to the other OSM done so far. He'll make a worthy adversary for the upcoming Colossus Rex for sure!
As for the Alpha Phase wave which will be released at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con and sold through Store Horsemen, we've decided on colors for each of the characters...
GEMINI: Clear yellow with clear green ABS accessories & parts.
ORBITRON: Clear pink with clear green ABS accessories.
CYCLOPS (shown both armored and with armor removed): Clear light blue with clear green ABS parts & accessories.
These three along with other upcoming OSM releases (scroll down) will be going up for pre-order sometime next week! Be sure to keep checking back here for more updates.
