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!

(scroll down for Parker)

I know the consensus is that most people don't like this line of figures, but humor me as this is one of the few places I can post this.
I think the ALIEN line of figures by ReAction is pretty much done, I don't think we'll be seeing the rest of the Nostromo crew. So with that in mind I decided to do them myself, starting with Brett.

The body is a modified Dallas and the head is a modified Quint from JAWS.
The cattle prod is a LEGO piece and the net is from a GI Joe figure. And you can't see them in the picture, but I did paint some simplified "scrambled eggs" on Brett's hat. :)

I've tried to keep it in line with how Funko/Super7/Kenner did things. Next up is Parker.

Wow. I love this! I was really hoping they'd make Brett. I can't see Neca bothering either...

Thank you! :)

And I agree, to bad there wouldn't be enough interest for the whole crew from NECA.

Only one more to go and you all won't have to see me posting anything Reaction related. ;)

I used a Kane body repainted here and there and lengthened the pants some. The head is from a Pulp Fiction Marcellus Wallace with the goatee and Band-Aid removed. Sculpted a bandana, repainted and viola!
Now I just need to figure out a receipe for Lambert and I'll be done

Dropshipbob! These look great and fit in well with the whole reaction line.

(Btw, this is CoreyD from the fighting 118th)

Dng...well hello there Corey! Small world, eh? I didn't know you were an ALIEN/S fan! :)

Thanks for the comment, working with Reaction figures is a lot more forgiving than other 1:18th lines.

Thanks Christian!

I wish Funko would have released more news about the DIY Alien playset they mentioned a few months back, that would be perfect for all the Alien figures I have.
