Way back in the day, when I was helping Woodstock get the blog rolling, my very first post was about one of my favourite rubber aliens. This rotund little character first appeared to me in a counter top box in Woolworths, next to the standard rubber monsters. He then appeared to my surprise and delight in a boxed set of Apollo Moon Exploring toys along with his friends, the usual gray space rock and assorted other models. Since his blog debut, hes popped up many times and in many different forms, but always without the rest of his team. I thought it was about time I gave the other five aliens a shot a the limelight, so here they are! Again, these are exactly the same figures that crop up in Apollo sets, usually as grey or chrome plastic, but the same team can also be found on keyrings and other small toys. Each of these rubber versions is trademarked and has made in hong kong on the sucker at the base. The logo is hard to make out and has defied identification... anyone care to try ?
