Futuretro!

This Friday, February 10th at 7PM EST, the Four Horsemen and Toy Tokyo will open the doors at the Toy Tokyo Underground Gallery to unveil Toypocalypse 2: Futuretro, a celebration of 45 years of The Outer Space Men and a rare look inside the creative powerhouse known as Four Horsemen Studios.

From the Horsemen:

"Their second annual show at the TT Underground showroom in New York City will feature many all-new, never before seen items and even some fan favorites and toy industry classics from the Four Horsemen's past, present and future! Get an up close and personal look at action figure work that's seldom (if ever) been seen outside the Four Horsemen's own studio.


Toypocalypse 2: Futuretro will begin with a special opening night for friends and fans at TT Underground Friday night - February 10th 2012, and will run through most of the following week.
 

And if you're a fan of the Four Horsemen's licensed action figure line, The Outer Space Men, then you're NOT going to want to miss this show! There's going to be a specially featured Outer Space Men display that will most likely never be seen in this form again, as well as some special events surrounding the 45th anniversary of The Outer Space Men!

Last, don't forget about the AMAZING set of super limited Outer Space Men figures redesigned by Mel Birnkrant himself specifically for Futuretro! This extra special set of figures will be signed by Mel AND The Four Horsemen, and will also come with an exclusive Outer Space Men print by fan favorite illustrator and frequent Four Horsemen collaborator, Nathan Baertsch! All of that for only $125.00! What a steal! If you want a sneak peek into Mel's brain as he created this new variation on his old classics, check out the "Custom Colors" section of his "Sketchbook" website HERE.
The show's absolutely free, so come on by, chill out with us and some amazing toy industry dignitaries for a couple hours, have a free brewsky on us, and say 'hey' at Futuretro!"

One particularly special part of the festivities is that the creator of the original OSM, Mel Birnkrant, will be in attendance on Friday night -this aspect alone is worth the trip! Between the Horsemen and Mel, you will be in the company of the best in the toy business, all in one spot.

There is also an open call OSM custom show on top of everything else (and fresh off his domination of cable TV, an appearance by the notorious Sucklord himself).

Marc, Jesse and I (the booby prizes) will also be coming down for the show on Friday night and possibly unveiling a thing or two in the gallery. We hope to see some of you guys and maybe go for an East Village Food Crawl later that evening. Crif Dogs is calling us!

All in all, a great time on the horizon!

  2. I'll be in attendance for this 100%. It'll be like a mini-con weekend but just one night LoL. Still a much needed break after all the wackiness going on for me these days.

    Just....just no kielbasa this time *shudders* O_O....

    1. Chris! Jesse is warming up for an encore performance that is just for you!
      Months of training will pay off when he goes "Primal Rage" on a fresh plate of untamed kielbasa.
      It will seriously be worse than last time.

    2. ROFL! Part of me is slightly curious how he could make it worse then the last time...but I'll not mention anything that crosses my mind to avoid giving him any more diabolic ideas on how to violate a polish sausage. O_o....

    1. No OSM scaled Pheyden this time, but there are some new OSM visuals on deck. Mel and the 4H have been in overdrive for this event. Incredible things are in store that have already melted most of my good eye after viewing!

  4. I'll be stopping by, though work the next day will probably make my appearance brief. Also, there is an awesome pirogi place nearby, if anyone's interested in pre-show food or snacking...

    1. Roy! Jesse is a pierogi junkie, so that might have to be tested. He has only ever really had the frozen and bagged styles. Only recently did he have a proper one back at NYCC 2011.
      Which spot are you talking about?

    2. I'll make a money bet he's talking either Odessa or the Ukrainian Restaurant... both are amazing for pierogis

    1. I'm pretty sure that the online sets will be available after the weekend, maybe towards the middle of next week. I'll get some more info.

    2. I wanna say they've announced that there will be 100 sets for storehorsemen... They did this for the Scarabus exclusives last year.
