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!

HI guys, my real name is Miguel i'm french so sorry for my not to bad english ;)
Aliens represented nightmares for many years for me... hihihi but i won on my fear the day i started to build aliens stuff in 2010 for my haunted house :) a room full of eggs...facehugger...chestbusters and for sure an alien warrior.
Aliens is for me one of the biggest accomplishment of stan winston :) so building my own stuff is for sure and tribute to his memory :)

Gday folks, Christian from Tasmania, Australia here.

Long time lurker here on the forum. I've been busy with my other prop loves, trooping as Darth Vader and finally finishing my LifeSize of Arnold from Terminator II. So....now I can redirect my efforts back here...

A few of my fellow 501st legion buddies and I have decided to put together a marine group and since that coincides with my desire to build a "Hudson" for my cinema room here I am again.

Thus far I've started small. Sourced the correct bolo tie, Pentax lens and correct soled combat boots. Also commissions Chef to make me a steel helmet. Armour will come next year at tax time lol until then I'll keep plugging away. I do have a pot of real Brown Bess so that's handy lol Now I'm searching for a decent replica of the Seiko.

Great to be back.

Regards

My name is Tee Jay and im a brand new Rookie in this community as of this past few months. I built a set of foam USCM armor out of EVA mats and such. A helmet made from toy parts and some clay i sculpted with a foam lobster tail. Like most i own a Snow Wolf Pulse Rifle which i repainted and disabled. My first USCM costume was made entirely for fun and for 1 time use at a convention party. I wore it again recently for Halloween (2016) and now i got bit by the bug and want to take USCM prop and costume making serious.

Ive been a part of the Ghostbuster community for many many years. Ive built proton packs and props from the films, comics, and cartoons, including building an Ecto-1 that i drive daily. I decided to step out of the GB community because its just not the same community as it once was long ago. I've actually sold my proton pack and some props and im about to take the money to buy parts to build USCM props and a proper Marine costume. Eventually Im going to end up just ordering the armor set from Spat and i cannot wait any longer. My resin Pulse Rifle kit from Spat should be coming in the mail this month and im very excited to get my hands dirty.

With the buzz about a new Alien film in 2017, along with possibly another film after that. What better time than to start now. having a complete set of USCM Armor and props has been a dream of mine since i was 9 years old.

Not only a fan of each film, but im a huge fan of the comics and actually a really big fan of the Colonial Marines game and fan films.

My real name is Kevin and I live by Frankfurt a.M., Germany.
I'm an Alien Fan for almost 25 Years, but I dont have many

Copy from Dietrichs Armor.
And of course, an M-41..., still unbuild, its one from
Monster in Motion from 2004, and an real steel Pulse Rifle,

time for it..., but hey, good thinks will need time... ;-)

Hello all,

My name is Roman. I am 40 years old and first saw Aliens back in 86. Gave me nightmares and I have been hooked ever since. I have collected mostly Aliens comics. I currently have a ton of old mags, comics cards signed by various artists from the 1992 SDCC, along with original drawings from various artists. I have some of the older items from 1979 and am always looking for more. I am starting to get into prop items.

Hey, how's it going all! Galen Fiore here! I finally have decided to start getting into the Colonial Marines. I fell in love with the Alien legacy in 8th Grade, and Aliens soon became my favorite!

Hi - rather desperately putting together a bunch of props and costumes for an exhibition in September!

Got a couple of Star Wars outfits 'Poe' and a Stormtrooper, lots (& lots) of prop guns including a PR.

But severely lacking in female characters and outfits.

I've got correct RAF Mk11 flightsuits and have made Spunkmeyer and Ferro - I have a couple of rolls of nametape material, so have (thanks to this forum!) made some handwritten nametapes.

Still got lots to do!

Hello. My name is JiM and I have been a massive fan since I saw Aliens on HBO back in 1986/87--I forget. I introduced it to my kids and now they love it. I even convinced my 17-year old daughter to go as Ripley for ComicCon this year so I built her a replica M240/M41A/locator combo, grenade vest (a friend of mine 3D printed a boatload of grenades), bandolier, and just for kicks, we are even making Ripley's infamous special edition Reebok high-top shoes. Unfortunately, now I want to be a part of the action and build a suit of the iconic marine armor/helmet, shoulder light, so I can be Hicks for the next comicon. This is where I need help. I know that plans exist that lay out the design for someone my size (5'10", 175 lb) but where do I find them? I need your help, folks! The next comicon close to me is in Chicago in August. That leaves me less than 5 months to build a complete set with functioning shoulder light. Need your help!

Hello and welcome JiM.
Your M240 looks great.
You can use the "Search" function for low budget builds (e.g. pepakura USCM armor).
If you post a little bit more you can access the Base PX section.
You may also want to check the Dragon*Con topic.

*LINK REMOVED*


Welcome to the Aliens Legacy forums "Sergeant Apone", Please have a look at the forum rules in regard to selling items on the forum. For sale "FS" posts are only allowed in the "Base PX" subforum which will become visible to you once you make a few more posts. Posting it several times in the wrong places is only going to get removed, and I'd hate to see your arrival here off to a bad start.

I just deleted all your sales posts Sergeant Apone.

As Moosh says please don't post anything for sale in any other section than the PX - which you'll have access to soon. The reason we have a delay is to prevent people coming on here and plastering the board with sale posts but not making any real contribution to our community, which doesn't look good.

In the meantime you can check out the board rules here.

Harry

I perfectly understand!

I was just hoping to come across some really Alien infested people - hate to see my article go to some anonymous collector instead of to somebody who really loves these films just as much as I do.

Won't happen again. Usually I don't sell costumes.

Hi all. Aaron here. Lifetime Alien fan. First horror film my dad took me to in the theater. His last words walking in were "I think this is like Star Wars". Just about finished with my xeno build I got from AULDeffects. Also having fun 3D printing props.
