Galaxy Laser Team

Galaxy Laser Team is a versatile set.

It's not designed from any major science fiction franchise so the figures don't have the baggage of being the good guy, or the monster, or the one that can fly.

Yet they are similar to characters from several TV shows and movies so they have a familiar look to them.

I also like that several of them can be used for multiple scales.

I have used the square robot for 60mm, 54mm, and also 1/87 and 1/72nd scales.

Lobster Turtle also works for a variety of scales.

The two rather generic astronauts work as nearly anyone in a space suit, but I usually use them as people who can't breath regular Earth air.  I had these figures when they first came out decades ago, but they disappeared.  I have since gotten them from Victory Buy, in several color combinations.

This is only about the fifth time in my life I have ever even seen snow close up.

I could not pass up the opportunity to get out and play in it a little.

My MPC stuff I was photographing at about 1 am.  

The front of our apartment building has more lights than a prison, so it looked like daylight.

These figures are outside in daylight, it's in the 20's F.

The space is only about six by twelve feet in size but it makes a nice snow terrain area.

Snow Lobster

The Galaxy Laser Team, in orange for safety.

They have to recover the downed drone.

The snow is deep and going is slow.  

Some members are dressed warm, with a cape, environmental suit, or even fur!

Not the ideal operation for a Lobster Turtle!

After my recent move to Kentucky, long term residents tell me this is the worst winter in perhaps decades.  We are staying in an apartment until we have a house ready for us.  The vast majority of the collection is in climate controlled secure storage.

We got a couple inches of snow, followed by a couple inches of snow.

They did a great job of shoveling the walks and driveway.

It got down to 1 degree F.

So we just spent four full days in the house.
