Random Toy of the Day: Aurora & Northstar (Toy Biz)
Back in the late '90s, Marvel published the "new" Alpha Flight with a set of characters that was largely different from the '80s series. And then, as that series was wrapping up, Toy Biz brought out a series of toys based on the '80s series. Seems like strange marketing to me, but having started reading the old series and the new one concurrently, I did end up buying the full line of toys (the line consisted of three two packs - the twins that you see here, Snowbird and Puck and Sasquatch and Vindicator).
The rest of this series is probably still in my mother's basement, but the twins here have been moving around with me, and even though they're not he best quality figures, they are part of my permanent collection. And at some point I will try to figure out what I did with their teammates.
