New Outer Space Men Test Shots
An early look at Orbitron, Gemini and Cyclops...
The Four Horsemen share with their fans an early look at their Alpha Phase wave of new Outer Space Men. These unpainted prototype "test shots" show off Orbitron and Gemini and their first Deluxe Outer Space Man, Cyclops.
Test shots, as explained in our in-depth behind-the-scenes story HERE, are the first test run out of the steel molds using spare plastic at the factory so the company can approve or correct any of the molding issues before the figures go into full production. These three are cast in a really cool purple/blue color that the photos aren't really doing justice to. Even though this color isn't what the Four Horsemen have planned for the Alpha Phase wave of these three figures, it's such a striking color that they may have to utilize in the OSM line somewhere down the line.
As for the Alpha Phase wave which will be released at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con and sold through Store Horsemen, the Horsemen have decided on colors for each of the characters...
GEMINI: Clear yellow with clear green ABS accessories & parts.
ORBITRON: Clear pink with clear green ABS accessories.
CYCLOPS: Clear light blue with clear green ABS parts & accessories.
