Which one would you choose ? If you had to fight that Alien monster, that is... or the annoying neighbour kid who got all the toys your folks would not buy you... The plastic one is very nice and shiny - and shows how the lazer (hmmm ... sparks) work. Perfect for that would be engineer. The Astroray... well - lots of psychotic spheres painted on it... Oh no! Blurred vision! The Alien gave me blurred vision!
