The Outer Space Men are Celebrating 50 Years of Toy Innovation at Five Points Festival!

Five Points Festival show sponsor, The Outer Space Men, are set to display brand new 12″ and 8ft versions of the epic Colossus Rex figure!

New York, NY (May 28, 2018) – Hitting the scene in 1968 and licensed to Colorforms, The Outer Space Men were a group of seven bendable action figures designed by toy inventor Mel Birnkrant. Each of the original seven figures represented beings from other planets in our solar system including Alpha 7, The Man From Mars; Astro-Nautilus, The Man From Neptune; Commander Comet, The Man From Venus; Colossus Rex, The Man From Jupiter; Electron+, The Man From Pluto; Orbitron, The Man From Uranus; and Xodiac – The Man From Saturn.

After their initial success, they faded from the public eye in 1969 after man walked on the moon. It was in 2008 that wall street executive and co-owner of The Outer Space Men, Gary Schaeffer, published the long-awaited graphic novel reintroducing a whole new generation to The Outer Space Men world. With the huge success of the graphic novel, Birnkrant and Schaeffer issued a license to the four horsemen studios (seventh kingdom, mythic legions, masters of the universe) and released a new series of action figures.

To celebrate this auspicious occasion Clutter Studios has produced an 8ft tall Colossus Rex. Working for the past 4 months, Clutter Studios used 3D scanning and printing technology, to scan one of the original Colossus Rex figures and upscale it to both 12” and 8 ft tall.  3D printing both versions, Clutter Studios assembled and finished an 8ft version with full articulation and a genuinely deadly two-handed battle mace!

Be the first to see the amazing new 12” Colossus Rex in person, and take a photo with the awesome 8ft sculpture.

Join them at this year’s Five Points Fest as they celebrate fifty years of epic toys!!!

MadHatter Review

The Cloverfield Paradox is a paradox of marketing. But the question is, is it any good.

I am not a big football fan, but I enjoy watching the Super Bowl. More specifically the movie trailers and commercials. Just like any other movie buff, I already had an idea of what trailers will be popping up. So, when the Cloverfield trailer came on, I wasn’t surprised, just shocked to find out that the film was bought by Netflix and premiering after the game. The Cloverfield franchise has always done a great job of hiding any information about their films. Look at 10 Cloverfield Lane, it just came out of nowhere, we just got a trailer and next thing we know is that the film is coming out very soon. But the question is, is it any good. For the most part it is.

Let me start of with what works in The Cloverfield Paradox. The film has a very interesting premise. You have a group of scientists trying out a crazy experiment that creates a paradox that goes through the entire universe and into the multiverse. The cast also does a great job. Everyone from Gugu Mbatha-Raw to Zhang Ziyi is given their moments to shine. 

Truth is these days it’s so hard to go see a film not know anything about it, with so many movie trailers and spoilers on social media. That is not true here. There was just a teaser that was shown during the Super Bowl. It was awesome going into this movie not knowing anything.

Paradox does play more like a homage to late 70’s early 80’s sci-fi horror films. Which is really a double edge sword. It works for the most part. It just falls in that category of being a bit predictable. 

If you are a fan of Cloverfield and like old school Sci-fi Horror, I’ll say check it out. 

Cloverfield Paradox is currently streaming on Netflix.
