Wild Boar ALIENS Samples added to Prototype Gallery.

Our first additions to this site’s Prototype Gallery for the New Year happens to be a pair of  1994 Wild Boar Alien samples.  Also included in today’s post is an orthographic technical drawing of the figure showing side, front and top elevations.  A very revealing and welcome document providing insight into design aspects of how these figures were made.

I’d like to thank Steve Dwyer once again for his preparedness to share images and information of his latest acquisitions with us all.  It’s greatly appreciated – and I’m sure you will get a buzz out it as well.

Go check out the images and information regarding this plastic beast.

I’m always on the look out to showcase more Kenner ALIEN figure prototypes produced from 1979 to the end of last Century.  There’s plenty more out there; and if you own such an item and would be interested in contributing images to a growing visual documentation of content, then please contact me.  I only post images where I have permission to do so.  It’s all part of my policy to respect the wishes of all the contributors who have helped make the Prototype Gallery the eclectic area of the site it is today.  Thanks Guys!

This is the last of this batch of updates for the prototype gallery for now; and some terrific items have been added with this Round with the generous assistance of Steve Dwyer and Adam ‘Proto_hoarder’ Saker.  I hope to post some more images of Kenner ALIEN prototypes again soon.  Right now, all the images can easily be viewed from the link found on the PROTOTYPE FIGURE GALLERY menu item on the sidebar to the right; or you can  follow this link.

Prototype Gallery Update No.3 – 1994, Action Masters Queen.

For today’s hat trick of prototype gallery updates we have a sample for a figure already represented in our gallery.  This is the 2nd version of the Queen Alien making it an addition to an existing page dedicated to the die cast Action Masters figure.

Nonetheless, it’s a unique item in its own right and we’re proud and excited to have it represented on our pages. Kenner Queen Alien prototype – too awesome!

Thank you Steve Dwyer for permission to use images in this gallery entry.


Prototype Gallery Update No.2 – 1994, Kenner AvP Alien

I’m very pleased to present our 2nd addition to the prototype figure gallery for today.  Here is the 1994, Kenner (Hasbro) AvP Alien.

The very first ALIENS vs PREDATOR action figures were released by Kenner in 1994 in a neat 2 pack.  This particular figure also enjoyed later release in 1996 as the blue Warrior Alien – Vicious Alien Attacker! in 1996.  Go check it out.

Thank you Steve Dwyer for the use of images for this gallery item.


Prototype Gallery Update – 1998 Acid Alien.

The Prototype Gallery continues to grow and I have a number of updates coming in the next day or so.  Here’s the first one.  It’s pretty cool, too.

Go check it out!

The 1998, Kenner (Hasbro) Acid Alien Attack Warrior was Inspired by the creature seen in ALIEN 3, this item was designed in the mid 1990’s but didn’t see production until 1998 to be released as part of Kenner’s final ALIEN action figure range, ALIENS: Hive wars.

I’d like to thank Adam ‘Proto_hoarder’ Saker for the permission to use his images and making this contribution.
