I missed these when they first came out - to tell you the truth, I think they were an online exclusive and never saw them at Toys R Us. Anyway, I saw on a forum they were on clearance at www.hastings.com so I finally grabbed two. They are repaints of the original figures with a holographic look, as the research team sees them during the "video recording" they see in the planetary station. The Engineer in Pressure Suit is decent, but I really liked the look of the Engineer in Chair Suit. They looked very cool in the recording running from what they created. Each figure comes with an alien "pod tube" thingy as well.
