20mm sci fi figures?

I'm building a 'space city' for a kiddie and I am looking for figures to po pulate it. I do have some Airfix Astronauts and assorted toy soldiers/civil
ians that can be pressed into service but there seems to be a derth of 20mm sci-fi other than overpriced movie merchandising. The 'city' is for imagin ative play, I don't want them constricted into some narrow film related uni verse so I'll be building the various craft for the 'space port' but I'm no t up to sculpting figures.
Anyone got any recommendations for 20mm-1:72 sci fi figures?
The old Dark Dream sets are no longer in production (sad that), surely its about time for a box of Airfix Dan Dare with a complementary box of the Mek on and his Treens?
Suggestions welcome - One idea was to use some renaissance era figure sets, if all else fails I'll try that approach.
Cheers
Mike

There is a gaming set called Heroclix that has very small figures from vari ous series like Star Wars, Marvel and DC comics, World of Warcraft, Lord of the Rings, etc. Scale sometimes varies but there is such a wide variety th at you should be able to find some mixed sets on eBay that would fit what y ou need.

Thanks for that - The list looks tempting although I will probably mod them to break the obvious connection to any particular movie franchise - The Ai rfix 2001 shuttles are getting air intakes on the top and new nose and a ta il as well as wheels and some other mods to disguise them and I liked a cro ss between a Harrier and an Angel Interceptor I saw on a forum so I will be checking out the new snap-together cheap Harriers for parts.
