HIDEOUS PLASTIC – Origins.

Around 2 years ago, sometime in June 2015 if I remember correctly, I accidentally dropped a flawless 1979 Kenner ALIEN action figure and destroyed it.   This particular item was extremely valuable to me as it had been given to me by my mother at Christmas, 1979.  The head snapped off and both arms were damaged. At least the dome remained unbroken but to say the least a lot of rude words were used freely and liberally on that day. I decided I could fix the unfortunate victim of my carelessness.  So I set about to do so.

I hunted for a damaged figure on Ebay with the intention of cannibalising it for parts to replace the damaged and broken ones on my figure. I found one that was perfect for my Continue reading

1:4 Scale Queen Alien Photos from Matrix Studios.

Matrix Studio have released photos of their upcoming Queen Alien statue.  At 1:4 scale, HRH is a staggering 42 inches high with a footprint of 48×22 inches.  This enormous figure includes a light up base and an egg.

In order to display this behemoth, you’ll need all the room you can get.  So sell that 2nd car and fill the empty space with something useful.  One of these things will do.  You know you want to.

Due for release around the end of June and costing around US$1100, it’s almost affordable.  More images after the break.  Just click on the link, OK?  lol.

REVIEWED: Medicom Real Action Heroes ALIEN Figure.

It’s time to review something ugly.  This lanky rubbery item will do just fine.  Not only does the 12 inch tall Medicom Real Action Heroes ALIEN figure look like one of the best iterations of the Big Chap in action figure format, it’s also one of the more expensive.  There’s a good reason for that:  It’s one of the best.

Not only does this thing look good but it goes well beyond its accurate appearance by fully emulating the whole ‘man in a rubber suit’ quality of the original onscreen monster.

Brilliant!  Read the review and find out why.

REVIEWED: Kaiyodo’s REVOLTECH Series 001 ALIEN Figure.

Japan loves ALIEN stuff.  …and it’s obvious they have a significant obsession with it when you start looking around at the high number of ALIEN figures released in that country since 1984.  I don’t even know how many they have released but let’s take a closer look at this one.

This is Kaiyodo’s well known item from 2010, the SCI-FI REVOLTECH Series No. 001 ALIEN figure.  It’s relatively easy to come by still so let’s take a peek into what this figure has to offer with a review.
