Full Listing of OSM variants/colors?

Postby The Gene Lantern » Thu May 15, 2014 2:15 pm

Hey guys and gals,

Does anyone know of any site that lists all of the Outer Space Men variants/colors? I am kinda new to the line and have all the infinity versions of waves 1-7, and I am interesting in seeing what variants are out there to keep an eye out for.

Also if anyone can advise of any sites that may be offering any OSM variants (I got a few great ones from Toy Tokyo) the info would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

According to the blog, my not getting either of the two 2013 Holiday Editions did not leave me with an incomplete collection. Part of me wants to get the weapons set the 4H are offering since that is the only thing from the line on the checklist that I don't have. I still love the line but feel the 2013 Holiday Editions were too expensive & extremely disappointing.

I agree with your latter statement. I know why it was done, but disappointed nonetheless. I did, however, get the basic holiday set. Still, it feels complete. Glad we made it this long. Still proud when I look at them.

I guess you have to decide how to collect them, it is a bit frustrating.

It's worth noting that the Cosmic Creators editions gave the characters a new name with the new paint jobs. So one can debate if they are new characters. But even if you don't think so the Birnkrant ones are wonderful and the only ones imho that better the infinity edition. And Glyaxian Xodiac is like a crossover if you can find one.

And I personally like the de-listed from the blog Holiday 2013 pair of Ultra and regular sets far more than a lot of the umpteen colored unpainted ones. But considering the expense I think the Infinity versions of those figures are quite superior.

Still in hindsight, if the Infinity Editions were more readily available I feel there would have been much more excitement over the whole series.

You see so many more not very photogenic kind of high priced unpainted figures that you buy early only to find prices later slashed to clear them out. Hardly a way to attract collectors.

Another run of the infinity edition with all the figures available in a single set would get me to buy 1-2 more.

I have added the entire line up of the OSM figures in my 1:18 archive. I did not include the last wave of Ultra holiday figures and just listed them with the regular holiday versions. I still need to add some pictures of the first set of White Stare figures but they are all listed.

On the http://www.118archive.com list - the non-existent Cyclops White Star is listed.

I know the final Galactic Holiday Ultra is problematic though they are white star figures painted rather than alpha figures painted (regular holiday) They are quite different visually so that grouping the two doesn't really explain things imho.

Good point on the Ultra figures. Since they were sold through the 4H I went ahead and added them as separate entries. I also removed the WS Cyclops and cleaned up and added pictures for the 1st White Star figures.

Adam P. did mention the Holiday/Ultra Holiday figures appeared to be Alpha & Beta repaints. Was it confirmed that they were just the White Star figures somewhere?

Yeah, through an email. They never actually ran an order for the final holiday edition.

What final Holiday Edition? 2013?

Or do you mean they didn't make a unique plastic color for it, correct, the regular holiday was the alpha transparent ones with additional paint and the ultra was the white star edition fully painted but not like the Infinity ed.
