    I picked up this Kilrathi figure from Instagram for $27.50 (including shipping to the UK), arrived within a week :D

    Thanks Loaf.

    I've added the figure to my meagre collection (there also two figures from Star Trek that are on a different wall)

    I managed to find the only two WC movie figures at a local comic & collectable shop nearby for $16.99 a piece (I think, been awhile now). I ended up with a pair of new cats for the home.

    Obligatory cats photo.

    I had no idea that they made figurines from that movie.

    Someone obviously expected it would be a lot better than it was...

    Yeah -- it was the first product line put out by X-Toys and the company didn't last too long after that (they went on to do Wild Wild West figures, then a series of Saturday Night Live toys.) Licensing Wing Commander wasn't the worst gamble; they would have been hoping Phantom Menace would make the genre red hot and buoy similar properties.

    Breathing a little life into an old thread.

    My Kilrathi were lonely and asked for some Terrans to play with. I couldn't help but feel the plight of their honorable request. Since then, there have been labors to introduce them to 6 humans, not all friendly. ;)

    The collection is finally complete!
