The Outer Space Men are Celebrating 50 Years of Toy Innovation at Five Points Festival!
Hitting the scene in 1968 and licensed to Colorforms, The Outer Space Men were a group of seven bendable action figures designed by toy inventor Mel Birnkrant. Each of the original seven figures represented beings from other planets in our solar system including Alpha 7, The Man From Mars; Astro-Nautilus, The Man From Neptune; Commander Comet, The Man From Venus; Colossus Rex, The Man From Jupiter; Electron+, The Man From Pluto; Orbitron, The Man From Uranus; and Xodiac – The Man From Saturn.
After their initial success, they faded from the public eye in 1969 after man walked on the moon. It was in 2008 that wall street executive and co-owner of The Outer Space Men, Gary Schaeffer, published the long-awaited graphic novel reintroducing a whole new generation to The Outer Space Men world. With the huge success of the graphic novel, Birnkrant and Schaeffer issued a license to the four horsemen studios (seventh kingdom, mythic legions, masters of the universe) and released a new series of action figures.
To celebrate this auspicious occasion Clutter Studios has produced an 8ft tall Colossus Rex. Working for the past 4 months, Clutter Studios used 3D scanning and printing technology, to scan one of the original Colossus Rex figures and upscale it to both 12” and 8 ft tall. 3D printing both versions, Clutter Studios assembled and finished an 8ft version with full articulation and a genuinely deadly two-handed battle mace!
Be the first to see the amazing new 12” Colossus Rex in person, and take a photo with the awesome 8ft sculpture.
