Mars Attacks Returns!!!

Mezco Toys is bringing the classic Mars Attacks! franchise back to retail shelves. The popular trading card series about the aggro aliens from Mars' assault on Earth is returning in both action figure and plush form. Today we're getting a peek at one nasty plushie...

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.

He's not your father's 'stuffed animal' that's for sure. This Martian is really well detailed for a plush offering and manages to pull off both cartoony and menacing looks at the same time. Very cool.

If you'd like to add him to your collection, he'll be available this October- just in time for Halloween... and is up for pre-order on Mezco Direct (for $15) right here. For more info on the Mars revival, head on over to www.facebook.com/MarsAttacks

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.
