Lanard Alien Collection Advanced-APC Vehicle and Colonial Marine Sargent Xenomorph Attack Action Figure SetKenner never gave us their take on this vehicle, but Hiya Toys did a remarkable $289.99 version which is basically a playset on wheels. That 1:18 scale version ma be out of your price range, but the wildly not-in-scale Advanced-APC Vehicle, and Colonial Marine Sargent Xenomorph Attack Action Figure Set is most affordable. It looks like an old Kenner Mini-Rig, and other than the plastic having a little more flex to it, it certainly feels like the kind of thing Kenner or Hasbro should have sold to kids in 1987. Too bad for us, R-Rated movies getting turned into toy lines were more of a 1990s phenomenon.

The Colonial Marine Sargent is none too exciting. The barrel-chested trooper needs to be squeezed in the narrow driver's seat, but you can cram him in there. It's just going to be a tight squeeze. The figure is a 2001 5-jointed Lanard trooper, complete with a blue not-quite-a-Pulse Rifle. As we've said before, it's very Kennery but not very Colonial Marinesey. The whole package seems a lot like something Kenner might've tried to peddle around 1995. The exaggerated proportions were - we were told - popular among kids, but it seemed the greatest successes of the era tended to be a bit more down-to-earth. But I digress.

It's not a remarkable figure - the Lanard Colonial Marines are kind of a bore, the other troopers have more articulation and are generally more creative takes on these costumes. Lanard could've reused pretty much any typical old soldier mold from its O-Ring era and it might've been a bit more fun, but this is a $15 set with an all-new vehicle mold in 2020. A vehicle this size with a 5-jointed figure in 2000 would have been almost unthinkable.

The Advanced-APC is a mostly hollow troop transport, proportionally rather authentic for a heavily scaled-down vehicle. It's only nine inches long, making it more of a "mini-rig" (to use the old Kenner parlance) than a truly authentic collectible. This is, of course, the point. The turret on top and the one up front both move, and while there's no damage or weathering deco there are plenty of stickers like 2D Sulaco and Bug Crusher. It's very on-brand.

Sculpted detail is close, but not an exact match - for those of you old enough to remember Saturday morning cartoons, this was kind of typical of old licensed toys. The general shape is here, with big, rolling wheels and recognizable landmarks from the movie (that you, as a 7+ year old, would not have seen.) The grips on top were adapted so they can actually be used to pry open the lid - which is a bit of a challenge. The wheels and turrets move handily, and the plastic's feel is sort of like the best-ever green army man Jeep. It's not high-grade hard plastic, but it's certainly very good.

If you're already all-in on the Hiya Toys line, you probably don't want all of Lanard's offering - just the aliens, I'd wager. If you're a 3 3/4-inch fan or a fan of things priced as toys, this is a shining gem. The last couple of X-Wings sold for $100 each, we've seen some very high-priced Batmobiles, and Hasbro's last (disappointing) scaled-down Millennium Falcon didn't even have a proper cockpit - so this vehicle, with room to cram one or two figures in the back section, ticks all the boxes of being the bare minimum of being pretty darned good. If you just need a nice new vehicle to futz with, get this. If you've been buying a lot of the Funko/Super7 ReAction figures (or Healey Made's Raider) this is the kind of gem - or custom-fodder - you've been wanting.
