Little Green Army Men - Aliens Style

The plastic playset is still around, regardless of all the articulated, detailed toys that come out today. Check out and and you will see this hobby is alive and well. Also check out,, and for the newest playsets hitting the streets.

Anyway, a company called Treehouse released plastic aliens and Colonial Marines between 2003 and 2005. There was a playset, and Swarm Packs. The buyer didn't know what was in the swarm packs, but they included aliens, marines, eggs, and storage boxes. I bought a few dozen swarm packs, put in a McFarlane Alien Queen from AVP, and here is the battle! The queen is not in this photo. Also, the variant figure in these swarm pack was a white/translucent alien, displayed here in the top middle.
