Thanks SpyMagician. I won't be getting any of these and if Mattel does Major Matt Mason in 3 3/4" scale I won't be getting any of them either. Anything other than the vintage style MMM figures and I would pass.

I had a lot of questions about the old Outer Space Men line (I'd never heard of it before) and after spending way too much time reading up on it and talking to a few fans, I figured I'd turn what I learned into an article. :D

No, I meant that the line has nothing to do with Mattel, so why ask it over at Matty?

Just curious...I've never seen the 4H post over there.

Peace,

Chip

He was asking about Major Matt Mason @ Matty. MMM was a Mattel line.

The 4H are doing The Outer Space Men! In 3 3/4" scale! With Glyos system joints!!!

Oh man, if Mattel were to do a new Major Matt Mason line in 3 3/4" as well...

That would just be freakin' awesome!


I've wanted those darn Colorforms Aliens for years but they were always sooo pricey!

YAY!

Holy Cannoli! That is awesome! 8)

Thanks for that article, Noisy! Really appreciate the insights since I was clueless about this line as well. Very exciting.

I've loved these guys since I had the Colorform when I was little. Anyone remember that gem?

Oh, I thought he was talking about the Outer Space Men. My bad! :oops:

God, I remember these from when I was much, much younger! I have always loved space toys, and the ColorForms guys were GREAT. I played with these for hours. (We had a gravel driveway. It conveniently doubled as an asteroid belt. Enough said.) You bet I will be looking for these!

I wonder how DC let the name "Metamorpho" get away from them. Did they lose it somehow? I always thought that it was odd that the BAF from DCUC wave 1 was billed as "Rex Mason, the Element Man" instead of Metamorpho....

These guys are from before my time, but I remember reading an article years ago about how popular they were with kids of the 60's. Anything that involves the 4H is bound to be great and the pictures I've seen so far look very promising. 8)
