Eaglemoss Space Jockey Figurine Available Soon.

Our silent space traveling friend, the enigma known only as ‘The Space Jockey’,  wil be available soon as a figurine by Eaglemoss.  The 22cm tall ‘Bonus Edtion 1’ statuette is now available for pre-order from the HeroCollector online store.

At 2kg, this is going to be a weighty item for its size. Here’s what Eaglemoss have to say about it

“This impressive figure is produced in detailed polyresin to capture the intricate biomechanical design inspired by the work of legendary artist HR Giger, and hand-painted to recreate the haunting colours in the scene, one of the sci-fi’s most memorable moments. This Space Jockey stands over 22 cm tall, runs over 20 cm in diameter, weighs more than 2kg, and makes for a unique standalone piece or an imposing addition to any Alien collection.”

Available for delivery from 27th October.
