Cool stuff! Thanks for making and sharing. I need that set now.

Maybe Mattel produced a few glow-in-the-dark Robot Invaders, but didn't talk about it much.  I did see gold doom zones (one was Palace of Poison) on TV, it was a New York toy fair which well over 20 years ago.  They were not released, the glowing Robot Invaders must have been made in slightly larger numbers.

It is cool but I still consider the Warmonger and Doom megaheads as the Holy Grail and if you disagree I'll bite your legs off!  Lol.

What you are referring to are prototypes man. They produced 1-2 pieces and never released them, never produced them, never sold them. Chances of finding one is 0%. That is not what Holy Grail is about.

Holy Grail is something that you seek because you believe that you can acquire someday. GID robot invader is a set you might be able to find someday if you seek for it (like I did). Damn a set was sold 1 month before for 25 E with once again nobody noticing it was GID (except from the buyer ofc). In the case of prototypes you wont seek them because you know beforehand that there is no chance to get one.

I hope I made myself clear  why I disagree with you and keep my legs intact ofc :P

"Bite your legs off" is a quote from the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Yes you are right about the GID Robot Invaders being a bit easier to find than Doom and Warmonger as they were never released.

Have you seen a Robot Invader in packaging? Did the cardback say anything about it being glow in the dark?

No I haven't. All I have seen is 5 loose ones in a period of almost 1 year of research.

How do you recognize them? I assume most sellers don't know that their robot invader is GID and they don't usually take their pics in the dark.

If you ever see one again, could you please let me know?

With some latest info from various ppl, I know that the number of recorded to be owned and even photographed GID invaders must be between 5-7. 3 of them have been owned by Funkycosmic at some point (one of them has a burned chin) and most probably all have been sold. Recently another collector send me this https://imgur.com/gallery/cLMvR
Since I haven't aksed for permission to reveal where they were found I am not going to reveal anything more.

As for how you recognize them. Have a look on my video again, there is a photo of both versions standing one to another. The difference even in a luminated environment is pretty obvious.

Oh, this definitely is very cool, the movie and the playset of course. A new challenge to find one I'm guessing.
And do you know if they have all 5-7 "sprung up" in the same country? All British?

Sorry man, I have no idea the origins of this set. Also I am totally unaware whether it was included in a special 3? set packaging like triple horror sets (similar to wolfship 7 variant) or single set on card. All the info I have are pretty much included in the video and in these few paragraphs on this topic.

Yes British as they all have tiny surveillance cameras in them :p)
