Super7 Alien M.U.S.C.L.E. Set B Mini-FiguresNow this one surprised me - my sample of Set B is a little less rubbery than the other sets I opened. It feels a little smoother, less flexible, and almost like army men. Maybe it's my imagination - but I can say they're neat figures and do a pretty good job capturing the spirit and general poses of M.U.S.C.L.E. figures of old.

More John Hurt is good, so I like Kane in Space Suit. The figure could just as easily be Lambert or Dallas, but it's Kane. One hand is open and the other is a fist, and it's a perfect pose for stepping up in front of an egg and going "Hello, what's this?" before it violates your face. The helmet is nice and smooth, and Moebius' costume design makes a great quasi-deformed toy figure. Big giant gloves translate perfectly to figure form, and the quilted parts of the suit are just totally the way they should be. It's almost frustrating to discuss - if you'd ask how this figure should look, you'd probably come to the conclusion that it should look exactly like this.

Next up is an Alien Egg, complete with the Facehugger and all of that lovely alien anatomy you crave. You can see all the details - your anatomical nightmares (or dreams, we don't judge) all come true bursting out of that giant, leathery egg. The lumpy exterior has been created perfectly at this small size, with the opening top and giant alien gonads right in your face. Thanks to the egg's flat base it sits perfectly on a table, which leaves you free to enjoy the sculpted "fingers" and "knuckles." There's a lot more detail on this figure than I would have expected at the size, which is great because this form factor doesn't really benefit non-humanoid character designs. You can't rely on stumpy limbs and big eyes, but at least you can have slightly chubby detailing and lots of sculpted bits. I guess it's handy that, by its nature, the alien facehugger is essentially a big open hand.

You don't get a lot of Yaphet Kotto toys. Parkerspent a lot of time with Brett, and basically no time as a toy anywhere other than Minimates and a couple of designer figures. His headband and vest are here, complete with two vests and the requisite stubby limbs. He's got a beard and his face actually looks a good deal more like the actor than I'd have expected. You can even see the detail in his pants matches the uniforms of the other figures - they did a nice job here. I'm loving that they actually delivered the crew... along with a gaggle of Kanes and Xenomorphs. Parker's just some guy, and now he's some guy on my desk. This is why it's fun to get old.

Given the price and character selection, this set's a requirement. You get the space suit, the egg/facehugger, and one of the Nostromo crew. This is pretty much essential - if you buy one set, you'll also need this one. It's the kind of set that's good and cheap enough that it leaves you wanting more, and thankfully ALIEMS figures are due later this year. They clearly thought ahead.
