Tinman, I tend to agree, I do like this edition the best of all the ones I've seen so far , and there are dozens of them out there, as ANZ's post shows! I think the sculpts and details are much cleaner. I guess classic characters never really go out of style. However, there is one nagging question...when did the first version of these guys hit the streets, 1950's or 1960's?

By the way, that's an interesting quote you have there, however, it sounds much better in German than it's English translation:
Es kracht und zischt, der Roboter macht nischt. Er kam vom Mars, und das war´s!
It crackles and hisses, the robot makes nothin '. He came from Mars, and that's it!

The LP set of 8 astronauts is from the mid 60s.
Their suits are the same like the Mercury Program had.
Imho the alien set dates back to the same time.
made into the HG "Alien Attack"
playset in 'Giant' (i.e. reduced) back in the late 70's
