Great photos Jim!

One thing about the aliens though, you don't have to de-twin them because maybe they are really all twins from the same egg batch? Or clones? Anyway I am not as concerned with them looking all the same like with a human based grouping.

LOL. That's how they were when purchased from antiquescollectiblesmalta on Ebay.  :D I actually wish they did all look identical.

True - as you pointed out before, I believe..   But I would STILL prefer them to be "normal" to reuse parts ;)


Love the polar ones too, JLMatterer :)

The display stand was a gift from Deluxe Toy & Hobby. It holds everything from the set quite nicely.

Very nice, Jim! It really pays to get to know shopkeepers. In my experience, they are often really helpful and pleased to deal with enthusiasts like themselves, especially repeat customers!

Yes, I got a bunch of shop-soiled displays from them today, more than just these pictured, & they say they will have more for me soon.  ;) Unfortunately, while at the toy store I bumped into a little girl & I fell to the floor; the girl seemed OK but I badly injured my knee. I'll take more pictures when I'm able to stand better!  ::)

Sorry to hear about your knee injury, Jim! Toy shops are not usually dangerous places (apart from wallet damage), you were very unlucky.
