Another Outer Space Men website

Postby Bruce_Jensen » Tue Jun 25, 2013 1:46 pm

I chanced upon a website that's new to me showcasing the Outer Space Men. There are formatting issues with it, but I enjoyed seeing the photos of the 4HM aliens nest to the originals. Here's someone besides Mel, or Gary who owns the 2nd Series aliens! http://outerspacemen.angelfire.com/four-horseman-comparisions.html

The main site is:

If you go to the OT forums, look in their OSM thread, you'll find the site owner. He shown it to us in one of the more recent pages.

thanks--- took me a while though to figure out "OT forums". I don't really frequent any toy forums except the 4HM site though, so it's new to me

Well if you figured it out....please share...because I have no clue either.

(I am sure it will be obvious once you say it)

My bad. The October Toy forums. Home to Glyos. We have a 63 page OSM discussion there.

Got it....and yes, it was obvious once you said what it was. I am actually a member there (more a lurker) and check the forum all the time. I just never connected it at "OT" in my head.

I'm glad you guys like the site. I was going to post it here in February but there wasn't an active forum at the time. I am fortunate enough to have the 3rd best OSM collection in the world, and it was a lot of fun putting the site together. No other web site categorizes and catalogs every OSM style toy ever made so I knew I had to do it. There is a really nice post by Mel Birnkrant on the guest book (and a pretty cool Gary post as well). I can honestly say that meeting Mel and buying the 2nd series aliens from him at the Atlantic City toy show in 1991 was the highlight of my life to this point, and getting to sit and talk with Mel for 2 hours was the best part. He is as nice and knowledgeable as he is creative.

As for technical issues, large angelfire pics are not compatible with handheld devices so the large pics tend to get horribly stretched. I contacted angelfire about it and they are aware of the issue. This site definitely needs to be viewed on a computer. There are amazing photos of Inferno with his fire lit in several different time exposures. To quote Mel, it looks like real fire!

John / osm5422 ~

your part in the OSM story, and helping bring the series two figures out into the public's attention is a great read, and utterly fascinating!

I'm a grateful benefactor of your persistent enthusiasm for the Outer Space Men.

Thanks Bruce! I am truly honored to be a part of OSM story and super glad that I finally got a website up and running this year. I'd been wanting to set up a page for the last 10 years but I am not very good with html so the project seemed intimidating. I can't wait to get the last bunch of FH OSM so I can take a really cool group photo. I also hope that there is a way for there to be a 3rd series of all new aliens.
