I've come across a set of 3 Alien Series 3 marines (O'Malley, Hudson, and Vasquez) AMERICAN releases. According to what little information I can find on the net, the series 3 marines were only released in the UK distinguished by a multilingual disclaimer on the front of the card. There apparently was an American release of the figures, but American stores rejected the figures as the Series 1 marines were selling horribly thus the Series 3 marines never made their debut. Instead, these figures were shipped back to Kenner China and destroyed or sold on the toy 'black market'. According to a forum member on another site, there were only x12 of ea. of the 3 marines that survived.
The Aliens line never did that well. The other figures, vehicles, and play sets can be purchased fairly cheaply on the bay. So what would a mint AMERICAN release example go for? What do you think a fair value would be on something like this with no real $$ transaction background?
I need some die hard Alien/Kenner junkies to chirp in!! Any info much appreciated!
