Outer Space Men

Outer Space Men OrbitronI have loved Mel Birnkrant’s Outer Space Men since I was a kid. The Orbitron was featured in the header of this site for years, and is still the official mascot of BugEyedMonster. At SDCC the last few years, there have been some recreations of the Spacers that I’ve enjoyed, and I just landed a few from the original run. Playing with them prompted me to do a quick search, and I discovered this astounding web site by and about Birnkrant’s work. The Outer Space Men Archive page is devoted to the Spacers with the best pictures I’ve ever seen of the toys, including the ultra-rare second series figures. I’m also putting up my own Outer Space Men page as homage to the wonder that is these AWESOME toys.
