Alien Nine Gashapon Figures
Unfortunately there was only one set of official figures ever released. These were a set of small gashapon / capsule figures which means they were only obtained using a machine that gives you a random figure for a small cost. In Japan these are pretty popular as people try and collect the whole set. They featured all of the three main girls from the anime series in both their ALien Party outfits complete with borgs and casual clothing.
I own this set of figures so here are some pictures that I took in the form of a short story (of sorts) :) The props or buildings do not come with the original figures. They are miniatures from Megahouse, Rement, Sylvanian Families and other places.
Kasumi: "NYAAA!" (translation:
I'm going to stuff myself full of yummy colourful drops!!)
Ooh, I'll definitely have some lollipops
I... I... I can't decide
A toy shop!! Let's get some gumballs!!
Hm I suppose we could for a moment...
Guys! What if an alien ambushes us? :(
Ooh a gashapon machine, I want to try!
Kasumi, I think we've stopped here long enough
Uh... are you sure that isn't a real alien...
Wow, that piano is huge!
I can play anything on it!
How about a rendition of Flower Psychedelic? That's gotta be tough!
Kasumi starts playing, the others watch in awe
Fan-made figures and garage kits
Over in Japan whole conventions are held displaying fan-made figures for various anime and manga series. A lot of these are done by very experienced figure makers and look very professional. Most of the time they are available for a limited time and only at these conventions although sometimes they will get picked up by official distributors.
Modifications of the official figures
A set of awesome modifications of the original Alien Party figures. Please note that these use themes from later in the manga and anime, so they are potentially spoilers.
The following figures were found on the Japanese Alien 9 Activity Website.
