New York- Based on the iconic trading cards, Mars Attacks, that forever changed the face of science fiction. Mezco brings these Martians to life with this 8inch scale plush figure. The other-worldly creation features the Martian’s signature exposed oversized brain and bulbous eyes, along with the iconic green spacesuit.
Revealed at the 2012 New York International Toy Fair in February, they have already received praise:
… totally nailed the detail in their brain-like head…” wrote Kastors Korner, “The cuddliest alien I’ve ever seen! He’s invaded my heart!!” says Eric Resnik of YouBentMyWookie.
Mars Attacks trading cards have made an indelible impression on pop culture since their initial release in 1962, inspiring a hit film, comics, graphic novels, and more. Coinciding this summer with the landmark half-century milestone of the original release, Topps is pulling out all the stops for collectors to re-connect with the cult classic while ushering in a whole new generation of fans.
