Awesome film! One of my favorites too! :rock

However, the toys you named are the only ones I'm aware of too. Good luck with the kits. I'm sure there are some out there.

i think sota toys made a 1/4 resin statue of the norris spiderhead alien, but i'm sure it would be to pricey these days for me if you could find one for sale.

Geez. I haven't seen that one in a while. You may want to post your want in the B/S/T section....

I had that one and it was pretty cool. Until it took a tumble off the shelf and exploded.

I loved that movie! Really ahead of it's time as far as special effects. Hell they still hold up to this day. I'd love it if there were more toys made of them.

Hmm? You're right. This film would definitely fit their style.

Was a pretty good movie though, i think the story/idea had the potential to become a great movie.
