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!

I was just thinking about him the last few days. Reflecting on him as a character. Too much of the team gone too soon.

That is a real shame. He was looking pretty frail even a few years ago when he was still on Facebook, so this is hardly a surprise but it is still very sad news. I wish I had gotten a chance to meet him.

 Post subject: Apone figure possibly?
PostPosted: Wed Sep 26, 2018 9:58 pm 

Country: United States
At risk of thiss ounding morbid or disrespectful....
Al Mathews never sold his likeness license to neca. So there was never an Apone figure.
Perhaps his family would allow neca to use his likeness and they could do a limited edition figure
to benefit a charity of some kind. And for us, well we would honor his memory by putting the figure in a
place of honor.
