(OK, I added that last part.)
OUTER SPACE MEN INVADE SAN DIEGO!!
The Four Horsemen are excited to announce their Outer Space Men Comic Con 2010 exclusives!
Dubbed the â€œAlpha Phase Wavesâ€, each exclusive OSM character will be done in a color that represents them as they utilize their â€œphaseâ€ mode to secretly invade Comic Con. These color versions are completely different from their upcoming regular edition versions!
OSM Alpha Phase wave 1 will consist of translucent purple â€œAstro-Nautilus – the Man from Neptuneâ€ figure (with a clear yellow trident), and glow-in-the-dark â€œMetamorpho â€“ the Man from Alpha Centauriâ€ (with glow-in-the-dark accessories) and will sell as a two figure set for only $20.00!
OSM Alpha Phase wave 2 contains a translucent red â€œInferno, the Flame Man of Mercuryâ€ (with translucent red accessories), and a translucent orange â€œXodiac, the Man from Saturnâ€ (with clear yellow helmet and accessories), and will also sell as a set for a mere $20.00!
Each exclusive version is limited to a total production run of only 300 pieces each, so theyâ€™re guaranteed to go FAST!
But if youâ€™re worried about getting to Comic Con in time to get your Outer Space Men exclusive figures, fear not!

I think the figures look great, especially the glow-in-the-dark Metamorpho, who has a very Heavy-Metal–dead-demon-astronaut vibe going on. Definitely getting these.
If you swap out parts between Astro Nautilus and Metamorpho you get the pretender,Octopunch!
I think they're charming in their own way, but a wee bit over priced and they don't ring my bell. Too 'retro' for my tastes.
Heavy Metal toys. Wow can you imagine?
'Anatomically Correct Den Action Figure – not for sale to minors'…
The Heavy Metal ref ain't too far off, since the boys got out in '69 and Metal Hurlant in 1973. there is a lot of inspiration back and forth going on in the 70ies and 80ies – not thinking of all the influences of He-Man…
I'm going to wait for the normal releases as I dig the paint. But what strikes me as the big news here is the price… if exclusives are running $10 a figure, normal releases should be no more than that, probably less. Sweet.
A basic Glyos figure is about 2.75" tall. These guys are 3.75".
Joined the Four Horsemen forums last night to get a chance at getting these.
I'd love to see a pic of one of these, or even a Glycos next to a toy I'm familiar with so I can get a sense of scale.
Signed up to the Fantastic Forum recently, but haven't gotten my confirmation email yet. I may be out of luck on these.
I, being a long time fan of Glyos figures, can't wait for these. Not a huge fan of these phase mode versions (not a fan of translucent toys and I'm not going to pay $40 for them regardless). But, I am definitely going to get Astro-Nautilus' and Metamorpho's normal releases.
These are way cool. I wonder how fast they will sell out online…I almost bought some glyos this week, but now I'll try for these first.
Metamorpho looks like the lovechild of a New Series Cyberman and the Vashta Nerada astronaut.
