Flea Market Hunting : Aliens

Another weekend, another trip to the flea market!

As you probably know, Isaac is really onto the whole Alien stuff. We finally managed to find a new item to our collection... the Aliens Space Marine Power Loader. This is a superb toy. Standing at about 9" tall, it a great recreation of the famous mech in the film.

Aliens were finally brought back to the stores in 92' with a whole new toy line. Produced by Kenner again, the line added a twist that the Alien would partially resemble it's host. This idea may have been spawned from a early version of the script of Alien 3, the "Dog Alien". As for the Marines, Humans & Androids, they were loosely based off the characters from the Aliens movie. The line continued for 3 years until it's demise. Rumor has it the demise was based on Kenner shipping and not issuing many new figures to keep intrest. A total of 27 Marines and Aliens, and 4 vehicles were produced for the Aliens series.
