Terra Firma the Woman from Earth Has Landed

The Outer Space Men Terra Firma Infinity EditionThe Four Horsemen have been putting out The Outer Space Men line for a couple of years now, but it was way back during New York Comic Con 2012 that I first saw their fully painted version of Terra Firma Infinity Edition.  After several other releases, including NYCC 2013′s Beta Phase White Star version, the Infinity Edition finally went up for pre-order about a month ago.

Yesterday Terra Firma arrived looking just as sharp as she did over a year ago in the AFX booth in NYC.  The Infinity Edition comes fully packaged with a backer card and bubble insert to hold the figure and her accessories.  She comes with a US flag, two additional arms, laser pistol, backpack and helmet with opening face shield.

The Outer Space Men figures use the Glyos System so the figure has some articulation as well as being compatible with other figures in the Outer Space Men line and Power Lords, also from The Four Horsemen, and the Glyos figures from Onell Design.  Being approximately 3.75″ tall for the humans, they can fit in with your Star Wars, G.I. Joe or Marvel Universe figures if you’re looking to expand a roster.

Terra Firma is still available from the Store Horsemen website for $13 plus shipping.  There are also Infinity Editions of Jack Asteroid, Ohpromatem, Horrorscope, Gamma X and Colossus Rex ringing up from $13 to $26 for the larger figures.
