How is it there's been no discussion of this theme here yet? Did I just overlook it?

No, it's just slow here as usual. :-(

But this theme does look cool. I like the B-Movie basis and that set with the UFO abducting the farmer looks hilarious. Also, the dark blue/trans-yellow theme on the EarthForce base is very reminiscent of Classic Space.

Alright another space theme! I'm so stoked!
Though, does the little blue guy look a lot like halo kinda??

Dude, this line looks sweet! Too bad my budget is already going down the drain with the PotC and new castle stuff. But I'm sure I'll be able to get some!

Also, the plain blue figs are like blue Classics. The series 1 Spaceman would fit right in.

Can't wait to see more finalized pictures.

I had no idea that this was coming! Thanks for the heads-up, Draykov.

I'm not too excited for the sets based on these pictures, but I assume that these images are still hugely WIP. I shall withhold judgment until I see more. I do like the overall B movie notion. Actually, it makes me imagine a LEGO Men in Black moc or two: something LEGO City, but with hidden sci-fi!

Maybe it's just me, but the sets seem to resemble Megablocs...

Well, the pictures are still preliminary, but now that you mention it, there is a slight resemblance to Megableh.

Some new interesting parts I see and although the alien heads aren't as varied as SPIII, they look like they'll be fun. Overall I feel this theme is more Agents in space somewhat, especially the jet-copter. Medium blue spacemen is a nice color choice. Earth Defense HQ looks to be the best out of the lot.

I actually read somewhere (http://brickset.com/news/article/?ID=1114) that the new spacemen have a new shade of blue. I find this rather doubtful, unless this "new" shade is the same shade used in the KK2 line from 2004 (Known as "blue-violet" on Bricklink). Or it could be some other rarely used shade of blue. Who knows? Personally, I would have liked plain ol blue, to better use thos helmets. Ah well.

Hm. Blue-violet wouldn't be a good color choice imho. I'm really hoping they're medium blue.
