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:
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
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!
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
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!
