Look: It’s The Avengers Aliens, Again – But They’re Different This Time

What on Earth is going on?

Now, more toys. But actual toys this time. Finished ones, being marketed to us.

These two images are promotional shots by Lego, supplied to retailers. See if you can work out who the little baddies are.

No, me either.

But they’re not the same as the little pink people, I’m sure of that.

I’m sticking with our post-Super Bowl theory. At least until Wednesday…
