Galaxy Laser Team: 2012 reissue
first wrote about Galaxy Laser Team plastic space figures here just a couple months ago, I had no idea that versions of the toys were going to be available to buy new right now in 2012. But it's true--an online retailer, VictoryBuy, has worked with the current owners of Tim Mee Toys to manufacture a small production of the figures using the original molds. So Galaxy Laser Team figures are officially back on the market! All the original figures are there, including the gun-wielding space hero, Darth Vader-esque villain, the little robot, the space woman with her trusty console, the Chewbacca-like guy, the two astronauts, and of course, the infamous turtle-crab alien. Also included are two starships. As with previous editions, this new set includes black figures, but this time instead of white, green and pink, the other color included is light gray. This gives the set a very cool, retro sci-fi feel. The bag comes packaged as a set of 48 figures and 2 ships with a header card featuring some very cool artwork of the various characters. I'd recommend picking up a set whether or not you already have some of the older versions. It's very cool to see these available again!
