What: A collection of one-color plastic and rubber aliens/monsters. The Space Creatures are made up of eight sculpts (in order, as pictured in the top photo above): Lizard Man, Tree Trunk Monster, Insectman, Winged Amphibian Creature, Veined Cranium Creature, Vampire Bat Creature, Gill Face Creature and Horned Cyclops. Each of these sculpts is based on a creature from a retro sci-fi movie or TV show (for details on that, check out this blog). They were produced in both harder plastic versions and softer, eraser versions. The Space Raiders is a similar line, consisting of very soft rubber aliens with more robot-like sculpts.
When: These guys have been around since the 1970s, sold over the years in various formats.
Where: The different incarnations of these figures have been sold in a variety of places over the years, from dime/variety stores to McDonald's Happy Meals in the late'70s/early '80s.
