Lanard Alien Collection Xenomorph Warrior, Rotating Sentry Gun, and Colonial Space Marine Xenomorph Swarm Action Figure SetThis was the first set I opened, but probably the least interesting. The pack of the Xenomorph Warrior, Rotating Sentry Gun, and Colonial Space Marine Xenomorph Swarm Action Figure Set gives you a gorgeous, Aliens-inspired Xenomorph along with a cannon and a space marine. I don't know if the cannon is new here or not, but the human figure is a mishmash of figure parts from 2001. It is not terribly interesting, but the blue alien makes the set worth the ten bucks.

The Colonial Space Marine seems to be a mix of the ca. 2001 Corps figures - which have preposterously big chests and only five points of articulation. Most of The Corps figures are pretty good for their times, with decent articulation that tends to be on par with most contemporary G.I. Joe figures. These molds can stand and sit, and swivel - it's certainly Colonial Marinesey, and if this came out in the 1990s it would scratch some sort of "good enough" itch if it had some more on-brand stickers or patches or other elements on it. It's just sort of plain - not bad, but wholly unremarkable. If you saw it on a cardback at the 99 Cents store, you'd keep walking. The blue not-quite-a-pulse-rifle is charming, and the figure itself serves little purpose beyond "victim" for the Xenomorphs.

The Rotating Sentry Gun is a bit of a bore. It's articulated, it has four legs, and there's a USCM sticker on it. You'll find limited detail, and it's not exactly ideal for posing with the figure included in the set - there are no meaningful grips. It's just a thing you can toss in a makeshift Hadley's Hope diorama with hot glue standing in for alien goo. It's not as interesting as the egg or a bike, but it's on-theme at least. It fits here.

Lanard's Xenomorph Warrior looks best in blue - but mine had two right feet, which I find upsetting. I love the rich metallic blue swirl, and the silver teeth are particularly cool. The tail has a different tip than the yellow/gold one, and of course the two-fingered hands (as opposed to three) and ridged dome (as opposed to smooth) help you see they put a lot of work in to make the two different in ways beyond just color. You're going to love futzing with this one - a ball-jointed torso gives you so much range, but the ball-jointed fists and ankles do wonders too. The bend-and-swivel shoulders are great, and the swivel knees and ball-jointed hips also do a lot of good. Sadly there's no elbow joint, but I don't find I miss them too much. It still looks good.

At a towering five inches tall, this cerulean swirly plastic figure is an odd gem. This is my favorite one of the creatures, even though the human and weapon aren't the most exciting. It just feels right - it looks like some weird, lost Kenner concept from the 1990s on an incredible budget. He stands, he can be posed nicely, and you'd probably buy more of these in other colors if the chance came up. As a 2020 sci-fi action figure, as a kid-driven product in a post-kiddie Star Wars 3 3/4-inch figure world, this is an oddity. It shouldn't exist, yet there is now an entire line at one of the biggest toysellers in America based on a sci-fi movie no child in its target demo should have been allowed to see.

If you just want a Lanard alien, and it weren't clearanced out around January of this year, I'd say get this set - other toys have other cool accessories, but the blue is just so perfect I'd recommend it to fans of toys with which to fidget. The yellow one is nice, and green is good, but I can't deny how much I love the blue alien. Kenner made so many oddballs in blue that it just seems like a good fit, and it's more or less $10 well spent. Given inflation and everything else, it was an incredible value in 2020, but now in 2021 you'll have to settle for a 6-inch fiure at around the same price. It's still pretty good.
