Aliens – Republique Togolaise 1994

The text on these stamps reads Alien – Le 8 Passager, which is the first of the Alien movies. However the illustration is inspired from Aliens, which was the second of the Alien movies. The illustrations on the sheet surrounding the stamps are from other science fiction movies like Star Trek and Total Recall.

There are lots of stamps like these where the illustrations are from popular movies, but where it is my guess is that the owners of the movie haven’t approved of the stamps, and they are only created because they hope to sell them to both stamp collectors and move fans. Well I ended up buying this stamp.
