"V" - the Visitors

I know, I know... there has been a remake of this one. But the original series of rat-eating aliens and resistance has always been one of my favorites... and come on, Micheal Ironside played a good "bad" guy in the series...

"V" figurines and original header card, maker unknown, Spain,
1980's
Not a lot of toys were made of this series, even though in the show itself we see kids play with the "action" figures that later on would capture humans for food...
Yummy !

  2. No, these ones were bought in the 80ies in Spain during a holiday. I remember they were very hard to get - even at that point (the series were showing on TV) - because the bubble of the figurines was stappled (yes !, not even glued) on the card. The visitors were easy to find, but it took me about 2 weeks to find the Donovan figurine, loose.

  4. Hi,
    They were not produced by Comics Spain, most likely they were released by a company named Maga along with a sticker album whose cover had the exact same drawing as these figure's cards.
