    That's a pretty bare-bones set. Not even a couple of plastic spaceships or a moon buggy?
    I am more than machine. More than man. More than a fusion of the two.

    Wow, how cool is that! I guess Colorforms or Mel Birnkrant didn't notice this at the time?

    Another good one, Brian. I loved the way you filmed and produced the presentation of the set when it was set up.

    Thanks, it was such a pain in the butt to set up that I thought "Screw it, montage". I'm glad you dug it.

    Never saw this as a kid, nor did I ever spot the actual Colorform Outer Space Men. All I ever found were the approximately 3 inch bendable Space Raiders knock-offs at Sears. For a short lived line, the OSM certainly inspired a lot of copycats, seemingly far more so than the much more successful Major Matt Mason line they were patterned after.
