"Greater East Martian Cow Abduction Co."?

Not to be confused with the Imperial Japanese "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere" of World War II...

Menards show excellent--great turn out and expo center packed with booths--BTW the operating prototype of the flying saucer lifts the cow under it up into the space craft--very cool if you are into science fiction

Neat to see them tip their toes into animated accessories. My only complaint with this is that it's an add-on to their barn, which was a redo of their first barn. I'm barned out!

Pretty neat item but I wouldn't be interested in it. At least I'll save some $$$.

Scales Modeled: Primarily O, but have some G, S, HO and N.
This is cute and creative. I missed out on the Lionel UFO Cafe, so this is even more appealing.

I hope they leave the decals off the saucer or package them as an option.
