Dat’s racist... I think..?
Probably lol

Though I'd say it's more.. xenophobic? Is there a world when you don't like people because of their culture alone, not race? It's like little Mexico over there, and no one speaks English and it's dirty. So of course I don't like going there. I don't not-like-them because they're Hispanic or Brown or anything.

Probably falls under some form of xeno. I know I’m that way about urban culture, from Manhattan to Compton. I don’t mind people speak the languages of other countries... in other countries. I do get annoyed when parts of the US become Englishless or even English challenged.

I visited my local WM and hit the jackpot. Lanard ALIENS, Mega Construx ALIENS eggs, some sort of "IT" head in a balloon....and the SW area STILL SUCKS. I haven't bought this many toys at once, at one store, in years. And what is it with just about every toy now being put in a container/bag with slime? The ALIENS egg and IT head come with this, that stuff is horrible to get rid of.

Anyway.....I now I said I doubted I'd get one of these eggs, but it was there, I was there, our eyes met....etc. MC....PLEASE make more ALIENS stuff!

P.S. The multi colored figures remind me of what ReAction is doing with their alien figures. I guess it makes sense since they are both dealing with collectors.

The eggs are coded for easy picking.
76TC - Orange/Grey
77TC - Green/GitD (barely)
78TC - Red/Black

And I agree about the slime. I've got a couple of the Crystal Creatures and that slime sticks to everything.

What do the MC Alien things look like? What are the lanyard aliens?
See attached photo, although you've probably done an image search by now.


Wait.. those are NEW figures?? Why? How? When? How is there a market, now, of all times, for TOY-looking Aliens-ANYTHING? Are kids chomping at the bit for 30+ year old movie monsters?

I appreciate the effort.. but wtf?
Many people have been saying just this....why aim THIS property at kids NOW? Who knows. Why did Kenner do the very same thing back in 1993? Even at that point, the property was almost ten years old, the demographic they were aiming at hadn't even been BORN when the movie originally hit theaters. But of course the difference now is, you can't swing a dead cat without hitting some sort of ALIENS themed item. Maybe Lanard is just trying to ride the wave and cash in on the success. I would question why MC has run with the property, but the people who collect those figures are probably of an age that are old enough to remember having seen the movie in the first place.

Marketing....go figure.

Yeah, the Chinese have stepped up their bootlegging. There are knockoff Marvel heroes based on the MEga Construx figures, too.
