BIRNKRANT EDITION OSM ON SALE AT STORE HORSEMEN MONDAY!
February 18, 2012

First, we wanted to thank everyone who attended and participated in Toypocalypse 2: Futuretro. Those of you who were able to submit a custom Outer Space Men figure – we couldn’t be more grateful to you. Thank you SO much! We think the show was a tremendous success and we had a blast doing it. We can’t wait to do it again next year! We’re already stressing out about what we’re going to try to do to top it.

The very first Cosmic Creators series of figures and special edition print did incredibly well at the show and we wanted to let everyone know that if you didn’t get the chance to attend, there will be a very limited amount of them made available on Store Horsemen this Monday night (February 20th) at 9pm est.

As at the Toypocalypse 2: Futuretro show, these four unique figures and incredible print all together will cost $125.00 per set (plus shipping & handling), and once they’re sold out, they’re gone for good!

For more info and images of this incredibly limited set of figures, please scroll through the first couple pages of FourHorsemen.biz and get an idea of just how cool these things really are. Although the pics just do not do them justice.

THE FIGURES: Created by original Outer Space Men creator, Mel Birnkrant specifically for this event, the Cosmic Creators Series: The Birnkrant Edition figures features Mel’s personal vision of an evolutionary step of sorts of four of his classic OSM characters.

THE PRINT: Note that the first female Outer Space Man – Terra Firma – has been added back into this image. In the previously released image of the print, Terra had been Photoshopped out because we didn’t want to reveal her before the show.  😉

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
