From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Astrosniks, commonly known as Sniks, are anthropomorphic space aliens created in 1975 by the German company Bullyland to market collectible toys, especially plastic figurines, designed with a retro-futuristic look.


Astrosniks were released as several sets of figurines in Germany in the 1970s, and were then licensed to about 50 manufacturers to produce memorabilia in 1983 and 1984. One prominent outlet for Astrosnik figurines during this era was McDonald's, which included them in a long-running Happy Meal promotion. The toys were usually offered as consolation prizes on the game show Starcade.

The Snik figurines were reissued in 1999.
