everyday is halloween

just two more days till the high holiday.  adverts and commercials for christmas are also popping up.  a little early, i think.  but why not combine the two, not like how tim burton did in his fantastic film the nightmare before christmas [1993], but getting your little ghoul or goblin an alien action figure.  yes, that alien from the movie of the same name directed by ridley scott.  i think this was a short-lived toy.  i don't remember the action figure in the stores in 1979 or 1980.  but i mean, c'mon!  really!  what marketing genius thought up this crap to sell a toy based on a very scary, adult-themed, horror movie!  i betcha want one, don't you!
