Mondo Mondoids ALIEN Coming Soon.

Courtesy of Bloody Disgusting comes news that Mondo, makers of Madballs and other pieces of weirdness, are about to unleash a new series of designer vinyl figures based on pop culture figures onto the world.  Among the series 1 release wave will be our good and reliable buddy, the Alien.

So what exactly are Mondoids, anyway?  “Each Mondoid, designed by Scarecrow Oven, is a uniquely freaky take on popular characters, and feature removable heads which can be mixed and matched with other Mondoids‘ themed bodies and bases!”  Continue reading

Hollywood Collectibles Group Teases ‘Sneak Peek’.

Appearing as a battered magazine cover, the Hollywood Collectibles Group has teased this image.  No doubt it’s for some manner of impressive superior quality figure that will be accompanied by a ludicrous price tag.  Nice preview image.

They have this to say on their Facebook page:

“You ready for some sneak peeks?  Stop by booth #2845 and check out many new and exciting items.  See you there!  #HGC #HollywoodCollectiblesGroup #SDCC2017 #SDCC #SanDiegoComicCon

I remember magazines.  *sigh*

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.

REVIEWED: Medicom Be@rbrick (100%) ALIEN Figure.

Along with the conventional range of ALIEN action figures that see release there’s also a fair share of oddities and novelty ALIEN items vying for Collector’s attention.  Some are good and some are just strange.

The Be@rbrick ALIEN is a fine example of a ‘non-traditional’ action figure treatment of the Alien character.  These truly remarkable oddities appeared as part of a blind box selection in 2015.  You could almost consider him to be cute – if he wasn’t out to bite your face off.

Feel free to rock on over and read the review of this nice ‘n’ nasty little Big Chap.
