Just a heads-up, Onell Designs’ awesome Rig goes back on sale tonight at 9pm ET (this is the Mk II version, with blue highlights instead of green). I’ve got the first release, and it’s a great toy. I may just get this one too. The first one was $25, so I imagine this one will be as well.

Over on the Glyos Transmission Blog, Matt Doughty of Onell has unveiled the new Rig toy (which he was working on when I interviewed him a few months ago).
(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!
You can read Part I of this interview, about the history of Onell Design, here.
PG: So tell me how Outer Space Men came about.
MD: I love toys that go all the way back into the 1920s. Anything that was a toy, I was fascinated. The Outer Space Men came out after Major Matt Mason…
And they were supposed to be kind of like those old Remco He-Man knock-offs–“plays with” Major Matt Mason.
Exactly. But what happens when someone “knocks off” someone else but they are superior to it? That’s sort of unprecedented now. Outer Space Men was so damned cool, it would replace playing with Major Matt Mason.
