Hi All:

We've just learned that SideKick will be making cards for The Outer Space Men, which was an action figure line originally produced by the Colorforms Company in 1968. I don't have a lot of details yet but the if you check out the promo images below, you'll find details on the card back shown.

Looks interesting. I had a few of the toys when I was a kid. Not much info on the website yet.

I think SideKick means that the cards are printed on retro stock, like their Suckpax and Art Hustle cards.

The older vintage cards have the backs printed on rough, unfinished, uncoated paper. We refer internally to them as chipboard, or chip-back stock.

Is there a better term to use? I already changed the text on the cards to say "chipboard" instead of "chip-back". If anyone has suggestions, please post here. The files go to pre-press on Monday.

Harris is so fast to report on a breaking story, that he beat us to posting it on our own site!

We haven't even written a proper press release yet.

I'm following you all around the net with my suggestions, SideKick!

Here's my two cents: "retro stock" or "gray backs".

I ordered the Graphic novel for this, I'll let everyone know if it's a good read when I'm done.

Hi everyone this is Gary Schaeffer the owner of the Outer Space Men LLC. First let me say thanks to everyone that has taken an interest so fast in the new OSM cards soon to be here. Tom at SideKick along with Mel Birnkrant the creator of the OSM have done an amazing job in a very short time in banging out these three promos in advance of the full set. Please visit the official site; www.theouterspacemen.com for updates as well as check out the SideKick site for constant updates. The set will be here before you know it and you will be amazed at the art and images that we have selected. This set is destined to be a galactic smash hit thanks to Tom and certainly thanks to the man himself Mel Birnkrant. You have to visit his site as well; http://melbirnkrant.com/outerspacemen it is an amazing labor of love. Please contact any of us with questions or concerns and to everyone have a happy and healthy holiday season and a safe and happy new year. Best regards, Gary.

Promo cards will be available to everyone on this site, do not worry. Thanks for the words of praise on the ELP. I am impressed; nobody knows that vintage rock anymore. Thanks so much John Oder for reaching out to me and thanks for buying my book. Because of John anyone on this site that wants an OSM graphic novel you have automatic free shipping. Just contact me through the site prior to purchase and I will walk you through it. Thank so much everyone, Gary.

These cards (and figures) look great Gary. In fact, I still have an old black & white Polaroid of myself holding a minty new Xodiac on Christmas morning many, many years ago...this line really brings back the memories.

Very interested in this one. Will be of huge interest at shows with a toy-centric crowd.

Actually wanted one of the Outer Space Men t-shirts too, but you don't go to "fat guy" sizes. Wink

Hopefully I'll be able to get the cards to stock. Awesome product!

Ed
