Wow. I had no idea that was the name of that CMF. For some reason I thought it was space marine.

Given that the Cuusoo project now known as Space Troopers (which uses some of the same elements) was, until recently, known as Space Marines, that's understandable. Turns out the term "Space Marine" is somehow copyrighted.

Space marines are from Warhammer 40000 I think. Colonial marines are from Aliens. I just started going through the minifigures and I think a lot of the prerelease names are what I've been calling the figures even though they have official names when they're launched. I think we might see the armor show up in regular sets, so far the only thing I've seen is the gamestop Lex Luthor with the torso armor but no helmet.

the armor and helmet is making an apperance in series 9 minifigs as well under the guise of an alien avenger.

My OCD says the topic was regular sets and CMFs are not sets so =P.

P.S. before you say 30164 Lex Luthor isn't a set, there are instructions and you build both the gun and the three blocks to be destroyed!
