This week over on, the Four Horsemen have been revealing packaged samples they have received of their latest wave of Outer Space Men, one of their retro their 3.75″ Glyos lines.    Below are the figures they have revealed so far:

We just got new packaged samples of the next waves of Infinity Edition Outer Space Men into the studio a couple days ago and over the next few days we’re going to be showing those to you one at a time, with shots of the backs of the packages and a couple of big group shots to wrap everything up at the end.

Today’s reveal is one of the new characters that was just recently designed by the original creator of the Outer Space Men himself, Mr. Mel Birnkrant. It’s the evil female counterpart to the ever transforming alien, MetamorphoOHPROMATEM!



The next reveal is the horrific she-alien, HORROSCOPE!


Yesterday’s reveal, the first Outer Space Man from Earth, JACK ASTEROID!


The incredible astronaut from Earth and the very first newly designed female Outer Space Men character  – TERRA FIRMA!

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 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,,, Boing-Boing,, 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.

    They look like a nice extension of the original line. I wonder if this is the end of the line or are they going to continue making more characters. How I wish the 4 Horsemen would also offer the entire line in 6 inch scale! Wouldn’t it also be awesome if they could get the license to make “Major Matt Mason” figures (similar body molds) & “Zeroids” robots to complete their revival of 1960’s Space Toys?
