Good to see the Pre-Bushwacker, Sheepherders getting more love. I wish more people knew about them, but I could say that about many of your great nominations.
Respectfully I never considered Muta a "foreign menace" in classic terms, his heat was not really an anti-USA heat but more of "that is one bad dude". However many are saying Muta so I maybe missed something.
During the 50-70's the "foreign menace" scene was dominated by Germans(small wonder), yet alot of them seem to be forgotten. Surprised no one has mentioned Fritz Von Erich.
