Oh my God I just got signed in to Twitter by my daughter. What the hell is this. I am GarySchaeffer(*at*)twitter.com. I did not know what to do so I posted the image of the OSM instead of my face. Do any of you guys do this Twitter stuff. Thanks, Gary.

I went thru this thread and I must have missed something because it's not clear to me whether or not the original OSM bendie guys are going to be re-issued. What is the story?

So, did anyone win any of Gary's auctions last night? I threw bids of varying degrees at five of them and all were unsuccessful. Might have done more but I lost my net connection just as a couple were ending.

The bagged Bullmark Commander Comet with the backing board went for a stupid amount of money. Everything else seemed fairly reasonable on average, but that was out there. Hope the winner is happy with it.

I haven't been looking for OSM, so I didn't see any of these auctions.  Just as well, probably.  Can someone post some links?

Here's the completed auction search for "Outer Space Men". Obviously, he knows what he had so they weren't mislabeled or anything.

Except for the Commander Comet, those prices seem strangely reasonable.  Maybe, like me, a lot of potential buyers just weren't looking for these right now.  I would have bid more on that vinyl Colossus Rex.  He's cool.

I was out and missed them.  I would have paid more on a couple of those.  Oh, well.

In a strange coincidence, it turns out that the two auctions that I was unable to bid on were won by a friend of mine who is a big time vinyl collector. I didn't even know he was interested. (He already owned the Colossus Rex shown.)

i was extemely happy to win those two . with these figures i find that prices are either low or they go nuts . really enjoying reading this thread . the guy that came up with these has such a stellar imagination . its almost a crime that the second set was never released.

Congrats on buying these, especially at such great prices, and thanks for posting! Thanks too to Dave for bringing in more great people. I'm envious of your purchase Jim, the faceplate on the helmet of my Xodiac is broken, and I still don't have a Colossus Rex. Do you have a BM Astro-Nautilus? I've been told that one is the most difficult to acquire and would really like to know more about the scarcity of Bullmark OSM 'bootlegs'.

the guy that came up with these has such a stellar imagination . its almost a crime that the second set was never released.

Mel is truly an artist's artist, a visionary's visionary. The second series OSM are the worst of our loss, but his Where The Wild Things Are dolls barely made it (altered, I believe), and then there's the pain of having no Max FX line beyond the reworked Freddy. It's as if his work is too good to like on the planet ;-)

the bullmark nautilus is by far the hardest and most expensive to get .

Congrats again on the great scores, Jim and thanks for posting!

I know most of your collection isn't really appropiate for this board, but maybe you can show off your "pachi" Ymir?  I'm guessing most people here wouldn't like it, but maybe haven't seen it, either. ;)

What's a "pachi" Ymir? I wanna see! Thanks again for the photo (via Dave) and the info Jim, and please feel free to post more, even if it's just in "general discussion", or link to another site or board. Many of us are into all sorts of toys and information.

Curious, is that one of the Bandai Rocklords that looks like the Gill Man on the shelf behind the Orbitron?

The "pachi" (short of "patchwork", and usually just an unlicensed bootleg) Ymir is an old Japanese vinyl bootleg, cast in blue. It's pretty ugly, but besides some wiggle icks, I think it might be the only classic American monster in his collection. Unless he's been holding out on me. :)
