I saw these up for grabs TP but it never occurred to me to place a bid. Wish I had, you definitely have the best version.

Thanks all.

Tinman, I tend to agree, I do like this edition the best of all the ones I've seen so far :wub: , 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. :biggrin: However, there is one nagging question...when did the first version of these guys hit the streets, 1950's or 1960's? :scratchhead:

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.

That's a decent estimate Blech...sounds good to me. :thumbs:

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! :scratchhead:
