Remember these bendy aliens I featured late last year?
I found these three guys at the Allentown Antique Toy Show (which I am unfortunately too poor to attend this year). They are part of a series of six aliens called Outer Terrestrial Creatures and were produced by Marty Toy in 1983.
Believe it or not, the toys are bit of a challenge to find.
First of all, no one ever knows what they’re called, so it’s impossible to find them “correctly” listed on eBay or anything. You just have to luck-out when looking for alien toys. I’ve also never see them at other toy shows, flea markets, etc.
Luckily for me, a Weirdo Toys reader, Jimmy K, happened upon last year’s entry and offered to sell them (thanks Jimmy!)… and of course, I bought them 😉
So, looky here. The family has been reunited. I’ve finally gathered the other three alien characters, and a couple of them are alternate-color versions of those featured on the box. So, if I get bored or desperate, I can try to collect all the alternate colors of these guys.
That’s it. Thanks for looking. Oh, and let me know of any place I can find the alternate colors of the toys I’ve featured here. Thanks.
