      Talisman? That's an error.

      Well, Shaman did use the Talisman name for a while.
      (Of course, he wasn't dressed like that at the time.)

      I noticed that, too.

      (A few of them have interchangeable heads, though.)

      He is listed as Shaman on the box, thankfully.

      Okay, it's probably something Action Figure Xpress just got wrong, then.

      They fixed it. I got an email from them today. I bought Series 1 through their website when it first came out (thanks to Phil for the link!), so I'm on their mailing list.

      As someone who previously ordered our Alpha Flight Series 1 Minimates, you can now complete the classic Alpha Flight team with the all-new Series 2 set featuring Sasquatch, Snowbird, Shaman, and Aurora, now IN STOCK!
      Canada's answer to the Avengers, Alpha Flight is a team of superheroes from across the Great White North. Some of the team's most famous members are the shape-shifting Snowbird, doctor/sorceror Shaman, scientist/mythical creature Sasquatch and the troubled Aurora, a super-fact mutant with light powers.

      I've got mine now! Series 1 and 2 (but the Box / Vindicator box is still on order). They're in front of my computer right now.

      They're really cute, I love 'em. They were made by somebody who knew their Alpha Flight; the way the twins have black or white hair, N'star has pointy or round ears (to match the artwork); Mac's Delphine head...

      I did have to glue Puck's foot on, though.

      I also love that you can switch out the twins' hands so they're holding hands.
