The most popular of these licensed series was undoubtedly Star Wars and its Expanded Universe, certainly the most numerous, it was in essence a separate toyline in and of itself. Predator, Terminator 2, Starship Troopers, and Star Trek had there own series amongst a dozen others comic book and cartoon series subsets.

Outside of the Aliens Transforming Action Set
Both the Predator and Terminator 2 series featured Transforming Action Sets but the Aliens set was far better implemented and certainly more polished than the Predator set. I feel these Micro Machines Action Sets were in part inspired by the successful early 1990's run of Mighty Max (Bluebird Toys-Mattel) miniature playsets, themselves inspired by the popular girls line Polly Pocket (Bluebird-Mattel). Three scenes from the original film feature in the Aliens Action Set of 1997, the Kane chestburster scene aboard the Nostromo, the Aliens usage of the air ducts, and the discovery of the derelict space ship and the Alien eggs on planet LV-426. Crewmembers Captain Dallas (in spacesuit), one of the ship's engineers Parker, and the derelict space ship were the three exclusive figures included. Both Kane and the Alien are pieces of the Action Set itself.
