OASIS DIGITAL STUDIOS BRINGS THE OUTER SPACE MEN COLLECTIBLE CHARACTERS TO WORLDWIDE ASSET EXCHANGE™
Inspired by space exploration and the original iconic Colorforms toys of the 1960s, Oasis Digital Studios, Apex Comics Group and Deadpool co-creator Fabian Nicieza, have teamed-up to re-imagine the Outer Space Men as modern physical and digital collectibles and much more.
Toronto, Canada – July 27, 2021 – Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc. (CSE: LQID / OTCQB:LQAVF / FRA:4T51) Liquid Avatar Technologies, a global blockchain, digital identity and fintech solutions company is pleased to announce that Liquid Avatar’s Oasis Digital Studios (“Oasis”) has partnered with, Apex Comics Group and Deadpool co-creator Fabian Nicieza to re-imagine The Outer Space Men with an integrated product and media program beginning late August. The upcoming NFTs and related collectibles will be available on the carbon neutral Worldwide Asset eXchangeTM (WAX).
The NFT program will launch “The Outer Space Men Have Landed” multi-media program that will span physical and digital figures, digital trading cards, augmented reality, 2D Liquid Avatars and a limited comic book collector run featuring key artists from the industry, led by Apex Comics Group and Oasis Digital Studios coming later this year.
“From the tin spaceship toys of the 1920s and 30s to the movie and TV tie-in action figures and playsets of the 1970s and 80s, The Outer Space Men combine the best of physical collectibles, digital technology, and storytelling for a modern and unique space age experience,” said David Lucatch, CEO of Liquid Avatar Technologies, and Managing Director of Oasis. “The Outer Space Men honor the original Colorforms toys while introducing them to the fans and collectors of today in new and exciting ways through Oasis and the Wax, supporting an environmentally friendly process of creating, distributing and enjoying digital collectibles.”
With commercial space travel, NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover, and UFO speculation dominating the news, The Outer Space Men harken back to the days of NASA’s early influence on toy action heroes like Major Matt Mason, “Mattel’s Man in Space,” and of course, the original Outer Space Men of the 1960s as well as recent partnerships with LEGO and OREO celebrating 50 years since the original moon landing in 1969.
“Oasis and WAX offers existing and new fans of science fiction, comic book and space toys an entirely new way to collect both physically and digitally,” said Gary Schaeffer. “The Outer Space Men have been mine and collectors for over 50 years and today we’re giving them the opportunity to save their memories on their phones and other digital devices using environmentally, safe and secure technologies.”
The Outer Space Men were originally created by toy inventor Mel Birnkrant in 1968 and produced by Colorforms. Visionary director Marie-Georges-Jean Méliès’ 1902 film Le Voyage dans la Lune predicted humankind’s first voyage to the moon. The space race of the 1960s turned that vision into reality when Neil Armstrong first walked on the lunar surface in 1969. In 2008, with tens of thousands of clamoring fans demanding the return of these archetypal heroic icons, the wildly successful line of toys was brought back to the market with the support of childhood fan and Wall Street executive Gary Schaeffer who reintroduced the line of toys in a new affordable format. Since 2010 the 21 OSM characters that span our solar system, The Milky Way Galaxy and beyond have been played with by millions of children globally. Today, the adventure continues with acclaimed award-winning writer and co-creator of Deadpool, Fabian Nicieza, who is developing the revamped storyline that will support the digital collectible program, upcoming comic book and Liquid Avatar augmented reality programs.
“The Outer Space Men were a cherished memory of my childhood when a young boy could imagine incredible aliens from other planets coming here to help us as we first landed on the moon,” said Fabian Nicieza. “Developing a new storyline that introduces the OSM to a whole new audience at a time when, maybe more than ever, we need to explore what’s out there in order to help us down here, was a wonderful opportunity.”
