Here are a couple good pictures I lifted from the net of the wild cool Friendly Folk of Gruesome Mansion made by Steven Manufacturing Co. in 1973:

I never witnessed the awesomeness of this item, until today. Is this toy rare?

Actually, no, it's not particularly rare.

Here's a photo of my Colorforms Outer Space Men. Four of them I bought in 1968, or so when they came out. The other three  I bought over more recent years to complete my collection.

You must've looked on E-bay. In good condition with his helmet and gun they're usually more than $200. There's a company called Four Horsemen that made smaller plastic versions of them in the past few years, but even those are around $60 and up. The one you like is called Electron. Here's another shot of my Electron.

Thanks. I like them a lot, especially because some of them I've had since I was a kid. Here's a photo I took of some of them back in 1972. I wish I still had that rubber dragon jiggler in the photo, too. I think it's a Russ Berrie. I don't remember what happened to it, but it disappeared over the years.

$20 and I'd go for it!  ;D

Do you still bury your Outer Space men in the garden on occasion, at least for old times' sake?

I had three of those COLORFORMS OUTERSPACE MEN about 50 years ago... I remember buying the Man from Mars on the card out of a bargain bin and think I paid a whopping 50 cents!!!  I later lost all of them, then built a collection of the ones I could find, but now only have Electron +, the replacement for the one I had so long ago. 
If you want to view Paradise, simply look around and view it.

That's about what their original retail price was when they came out. I bought a few of them. They've gone up in price now.

No. I haven't done that in a long, long, time. I remember I buried their legs because I couldn't get them to stand up in the dirt for the photo.
