December 2013 - It's that time of year again to grab a cup of hot chocolate, throw on your favorite Snuggie, toss a log in the fireplace and play with tiny little alien action figures. Yep, the Galactic Holiday Outer Space Men are making a return to your galaxy for the holidays and this time they're even more special than ever before! As you can see from the photos below, these are no average Outer Space Men figures. Each one of these was hand customized by fan favorite action figure creator and customizer, Ni of NiStuff! Because they're all hand painted, each one will feature a slightly different look but all will be fairly representative of the colors and styles shown below. Also, because each little figure is hand customized, they're going to be lightly more expensive than previous Galactic Holiday OSM releases. There are two different tiers of NiStuff customized figures and the details of each are listed below...
