"AckAckAckAck!! We come in peace!"

Before the release of the two upcoming "Mars Attacks!" collectible movie figures by Hot Toys (see previous posts), there was this charming figure from Trendmasters. This was released in 1996 in conjunction with the movie's release. It's a 30 cm tall or 11.75-inch figure of the Supreme Martian Ambassador and featured "throbbing" brain and "blazing" lights plus evil threat and horrid translation.

You pressed the red button on his chest to activate the light and sound effects - cool, simple and fun to play with. Most importantly, didn't cost an arm and a leg!

Comes with his own ray gun, which wasn't very movie accurate

Three "AA" batteries included in his backpack oxygen tank

I still like it after all these years, especially with the light and sound features :)
