Astron & Astra
Astron and Astra are inter-dimensional police officers from an alternate earth called Ammon. They sort of pop up in the AC universe when there appears to be an inter-dimensional crime in progress. Astron's real name is apparently Page Connors - I guess the female version of that name is spelled Paige, isn't it - anyway, scans have indicated that Astron has a nearly identical genetic structure to Commando D, so he may be an alternate universe version or maybe a clone or bear some type of relationship because they both deal with inter-dimensional issues. I'm not sure what the relationship is between Astron and Astra, or even if there is a relationship aside from their work, but if an inter-dimensional baby showed up somewhere along the line I wouldn't be the one who was surprised. As part of their job the pair can create dimensional portals through which they can travel and they can also fly. I used a Toy Biz Daredevil for Astron and a Toy Biz Invisible Woman for Astra. I sculpted the helmets using epoxy putty and the holsters are from two Jurassic Park Muldoon figures.
