I'm placing my order YESTERDAY!!!!


Star Commander13 Dec 2007 11:21 a.m. PST

Alright! I've been planning to buy these guys for my 'Invasion of Potter's Grove' game at Cold Wars. I guess I waited just long enough!


Condottiere13 Dec 2007 11:27 a.m. PST

Dreck … let's try this again.

Looks like Lon modeled these after some of us from the local game group. laugh

They look great. I sense an alien invasion coming in the near future to a convention near you!! Stay tuned …

after my post, I 'slished off'…electronically speaking of course…to buy the 'latest'…8-)

Now I just have to get them, base them, paint them and add them to the BATTLE SAUCER!!!

Hey Lon!! GREAT critters…MORE, Please!!!! (I got the other sets already too!!! 8-)

IF you have been 'waiting' before ordering these figs…NOW would be a most excellent time to pick the WHOLE set up…in time to INVADE CHRISTMAS! Santa 'conquers' the Martians…BAH, Humbug! You wanna see Rudolf's nose REALLY 'glow'…see what happens when the TRUTH PROBE gets to him!!!! BWAAAHHHHH-HAAAH-HAAAA!!


Neotacha13 Dec 2007 12:29 p.m. PST

Eeek! Someone whipped out one of those 'truth probes' & I'd be singing like a canary before they got within six feet.

mweaver13 Dec 2007 12:32 p.m. PST

Me too. Whatever they want to know, I'm telling 'em.

MiniatureReview13 Dec 2007 12:46 p.m. PST

I think my doctor might have used that on me. :(

Hundvig Fezian13 Dec 2007 1:02 p.m. PST

I'm afraid to see the dioramas that Truth Probe model is going to inspire.

We make no distinction between humans or other inferior alien races.

That sort of thinking can only end in tragedy. It occurs to me that doing a Vor Growler conversion who's picking his teeth with a probe might be amusing. Maybe add a dismembered alien limb or two to the base for effect…

jgawne13 Dec 2007 1:05 p.m. PST

At- ACK!

Personal logo Dances With Words Supporting Member of TMP Fezian13 Dec 2007 1:05 p.m. PST

erm…have you seen the other aliens in the set? One of them is wearing an 'ALIENS' skull on it's head and using it's spikey tail as a 'weapon' and another figure is wearing a 'predatory armor/shoulder-blaster' outfit!

IF these blokes can take out 'ALIENS' and 'PREDATORS' do you REALLY think a 'vor' or ANYTHING else is gonna 'scare' them????

I shudder in fear!

*slish…slish*….now I gotta change my shorts!

John the OFM13 Dec 2007 1:15 p.m. PST

I hope the Truth is the ONLY thing it "probes".

Detailed Casting Products13 Dec 2007 1:20 p.m. PST

Don't run Earthlings, for we are your friends! wink

Pfui. Growlers eat Preds for breakfast…literally. Aliens are a little tougher, but only because the acid blood makes for nasty heartburn. These weedy melonheads are barely a snack.

They *are* probably too arrogant to scare, but that just makes them easier to catch and eat. Growlers like food that isn't smart enough to run away.

I guess that I'll have to get my paint brush out again and see if I can make the new ones look like the ones I've already done here:

Can't wait to have at them.

Add the 'Truth Probe' to a diorama with one of Werner Klocke's 'Freebooty' – er, sorry, 'Freebooter' minis…

"I call this 'Turn Your Head and Cough'."

I think that "Truth Probing" would make one beg for a nice rack, iron maiden, or thumbscrews.

Nice figures.

Condottiere13 Dec 2007 2:34 p.m. PST

Looks painful. wink

But they get a gold star none the less.

IttyBitty13 Dec 2007 2:35 p.m. PST

Is that a Truth Probe in your pocket or are you happy to see me???

Cacique Caribe13 Dec 2007 2:37 p.m. PST

I guess that is why they burned the tapes. :)


Charles Marlow13 Dec 2007 5:57 p.m. PST

"Truth Probe"! Lol!

Judas Iscariot13 Dec 2007 6:08 p.m. PST

I have scarier "Probes" than that one… So have most of my girl-friends… Maybe these Aliens need to go visit a local "Good-Vibrations" shop to find themselves some better "Truth-Probes"…

I wonder exactly what kind of "truth" they are hoping to discover?

That roughly 1/3 of all people seem to enjoy that sort of probe?

CondoGamer1513 Dec 2007 8:11 p.m. PST

rest assured if I fell into their clutches I would sing like a canary!

….somehow I don't think that's what the 'Beach Boys' had in mind when they sang the song, Judas….8-0 and then there was a really STRANGE 'infomercial/selling channel' on late one evening with all sorts of 'adult toys'…(supposedly/alledgedly for 'women' MOSTLY)…that reminded me of power tools designed by demented and dyslexic yard gnomes??? rows of counter-rotating ball-bearing rings inside transparent/translucent and neon-colored 'plastics' along with enough 'rpms' to red-line most NASCAR motors, (and mix paint in 5-gallon cans at the same time???)….

But THAT's another INVASION/STORY???? *slish*…

I still think the 'device' used on 'Barbarella'…(until she BURNT it out…)…probably was one of the most 'diabolical'…but the mad scientist only used it on female 'victims'…no cows, etc….

so I'm just going to plan on using it as yet another 'death ray/brain-stem extractor…like the other 'Furon' tech from Destroy All Humans 1 and 2!!!

Better yet, turn loose the LIFE-SIZE 'Barbi-Kenzoid androids'…that only have 'bumps' and blank spaces…no 'probe-able' avenues of 'exploration' and any attempt to do so…automatically activates the 'Texas Double-Hotsauce/triple-bean burrito defense' SELF-DESTRUCT mechanism…

All that's left is a 'toxic BLUE cloud' that is highly flamable and burns/scorches or fumigates anything within it's blast range!!!

Didn't we see something like this in 'Blazing Saddles'????

*slish…slish…Protect yourself from ALIEN INVASION! Eat more BEANS!!!!

Cowboy14 Dec 2007 2:43 a.m. PST

Well personally I really like Hundvig's idea for a diorama with a Bug fuggly picking his teeth with the "Truth Probe" with some dismembered Grey's parts lying around, it reminds me of the GW dread that I made ages ago with a Snotlings arms and legs protruding from under the sides of its foot.. it did get some giggles.

TheWarStoreMan14 Dec 2007 5:45 a.m. PST

Lon must have been kidnapped by Aliens, 'cause that's exactly the probe they used on me.
No, really…

Personal logo Dances With Words Supporting Member of TMP Fezian14 Dec 2007 8:04 a.m. PST

Now that I've ordered the three new 'Invaders'…I guess I need to get his 'Perils and Predicaments'/victims! Then I could play a 'Destroy all Humans/Probe/extract DNA?' type scenario from the 50's??? (do need to find/make/modify a few COWS and other livestock though…)

I still think we need TWO more 'alien poses' though…one with an alien dressed like ELVIS…(imagine an ELVIS 'wig' on the HEAD of their PSYCIC fig!!! sorta like the female Martians 'beehive hairdo' in MARS ATTACKS?? 8-) and an alien in the 'Dr Evil' ONE MILLION DOLLARS 'pose'…be-ringed fingers upturned with pinkie next to mouth/cheek???

*sigh*….then there could be a 'zombie' alien….a 'Hulked out' alien…a 'nerd' alien….'walk like an egyptian/King Tut ala' Steve Martin' alien….and 'ConALIEN the Barbarian' standing on the body of a caveman w/adoring cavewoman wrapped around his side and holding a huge sword (CC would LOVE that one!)…and..and…(I'll go lay down and take my nap now…)
