The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

Looks like they are releasing another version of the xenomorph. this one will have "battle damage". No other ALIENS themed figures will be in the line, but MOTU will be getting another three or four figures. :?

I don't suppose that anyone has noted that the Marine was designed as a "nod" to Hudson/Bill Paxton, including a combat knife, as well as a similar paint scheme on the chest armor.

Ludicrous proportions and Lego-like size aside, I can appreciate that it IS just a toy, and of very small scale. I can forgive inaccuracies, especially considering that posthumous honor, meant as such or not.

Yeah, I noticed. That was pretty cool of them.

Svenza, I could hook you up if you are willing to pay all fees.

I have only been able to find 3 xenos in my area (snatched them up immediately) and 6 of the Marines, though I have yet to hit all the stores.

Do you plan on repainting the armor on the Marines so they all look different?

The Aliens actually look pretty great! Shame the shipping from the States is so much for these.

Likely going to resell later on. I know some areas don't have them available. It'll be a good way to make contacts in areas with things I cannot get here.

Just acquired seven more Marines. Still not finding any more bugs though.

One had been previously opened, so I don't feel bad about opening it again. All parts present.

i got the marine about two months ago from walmart in North Carolina. only ever seen the marine in the wild though.
walmart has them every time i go ebay always has these lately too for about 10 dollars. detail on the marine is great, pulse rifle and lamp too. someone should start a petition to make a dropship and APC. they make a million other ships and playsets for halp ect.

Just snagged the only battle damaged xeno (series 3) that the local store had. Time to expand search parameters.







07/01 update: Only 2 additional found.

I wish they would have done more than splash a little green paint on the previous version and call it "new". Seriously, they made two new Masters of the Universe and a new Star Trek, but all ALIENS gets is a re-paint. They could have at least thrown in an egg.

I'm just happy to see a company AFFORDABLY acknowledging a franchise I happen to like.

I picked up two Marines at Toys R Us. Very pleased with these little guys (except for the legs; I think they mistakenly used the thinner thigh moulds for the figures that get removable armour pieces, which ends up making the Marines’ legs look slightly knock-kneed and comically skinny when juxtaposed with their big, brawny arms). Hope they make more. :)

id guess that they are doing a repaint in this series to further guage interest. Buy every lasdt one of them so they'll make a smartgunner and eventually a dropship

Thanks!
