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!

Hello!
My name is Terry. I've actually been a member here since back in the days when the Aliens Legacy had been on EZboard, but I've never really posted much despite my tenure here. That being said, It's probably about time I [re]introduced myself.

I'm 38 years old and I live in Albuquerque, NM though I tend to go back and forth between Texas and New Mexico.
Ever since my childhood, the Alien movies have had such an impact on my life. Aliens was the first movie that terrified and thrilled me at the same time. An equal combination of a vicious, deadly menace against a platoon of Marines decked out in a futuristic, Vietnam style look from a 1980's point of view. I love the cinematography, the aesthetic of the sets and the realness of all the characters and their personalities, etc. Aliens always has and always will be my favorite Sci-Fi action movie!

Aside from my love of the movies, one of my hobbies that I love to do is create 1:8 dioramas and modify, customize and create my own action figures, particularly Colonial Marines.
I love NECA for making such an amazing line of Aliens, Predators and Marines.
I love the costuming and full size props that so many talented people make, but I just have never quite had the room to store them, so I tend to stick with 7-8" scale figures and models.

Anyway, I have always been a huge fan of the Aliens Legacy and over the years have learned a tremendous amount of knowledge, seen some amazing collections and props from so many amazing people on here and going forward, I hope to be a bit more active!
Cheers everyone! :delta:

Hi All!

I've been lurking for awhile so I thought I'd sign up and make it official. I've more or less completed my Indiana Jones gear (after about fourteen years...) so now I'm starting on recreating some other things I've had on my list for awhile. I've been a huge Aliens fan basically since I can remember, so I'm looking forward to working on some of that gear!

I'm going to be working on upgrading my Matrix/Snow Wolf pulse rifle over the next couple of months, so I'm sure you'll see me posting in that forum with some questions here and there.

Thanks all!

Jock

Thanks for the welcome Moosh!

I'm actually in Canada as well (on the West Coast). Nice to find that there's a few Canadians on the board!

Hello Everyone,

My name is Michael, a big Alien fan from Portland, Oregon. I've currently got Matsucorp building me one mean pulse rifle and (hopefully - boy, it has been taking a while) TE himself queuing up a full set of armor for me. I'm also communicating a lot with Chef of ChefsCreations for accessories. He seems to be connected with TE.

Anyway, I am definitely making "my own" marine with plenty of modifications, so I look forward to showing them off to you guys!

-Michael

Hey Michael,

looking forward to seeing your full kit. Those are some of the best vendors out there (plus TE who is obviously the Holy Grail) so you are sure to have a fantastic end result. Welcome!

Thank you so much!

I have already taken some photos as I slowly secure accessories ahead of the armor and M41A, but I suppose I should save those for a separate thread later on down the line : )

Greetings! Long time Alien fan, I was 5 when I saw TV commercials for the film, became obsessed and have been ever since! I've still got the original Kenner doll. Saw Aliens and was completely blown away. You don't understand, I had to make sure my girlfriend liked these movies before I married her! :lol:
Here I am, a fourty-something year old guy still obsessed with the franchise. I don't own equipment, I'm more of a tabletop role player and wargamer, but I love details about the setting and reading peoples ideas about it.

Welcome Scott! Do you ever play the Leading Edge Aliens RPG? When I was a teen my friends and I tried it. We ended up just mining it for details and using our own Hausgemacht rules. Good times!

Hi everyone! Longtime 501st member here, looking to broaden my horizons by joining the USCM. I've got armor on the way and will be picking up bits and bobs here and there.

We've got a crew of three or four people in Northern Indiana who are currently working on Aliens/USCM gear.

Happy to be here!

Hello there!

New member here, please bear with me! I am eager to join the Corps. On a side note, I am not entirely new in costume groups as I am with the 501st Legion; however, when it comes to joining the Corps I am clueless. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated! I hail from Saskatchewan, Canada. It is a very small province that probably does not have any USCM member (I may be wrong). If that is the case, then I aim to be the first USCM member in my province.
