It’s time to start talking about my plans regarding my continuing work effort on this Project. In this post-KickStarter period the book is still under development and progressing well. I’ve restructured my work load and expect to be able to publish HIDEOUS PLASTIC – In stores everyone can hear you scream. sometime in late 2018. In order to do so, I’ll be raising funds personally via my own means as well as engaging in another KickStarter campaign in about 12 months time, say about June 2018. Providing my own financial support for this Project is going to be essential to its success, effectively using KickStarter to fund the balance.
Despite the fact it failed to raise the much needed funds, I learned a great deal from my first crowdfunding effort so I’ll be approaching Round 2 a little differently. Key to this goal Continue reading
Here’s Funko’s upcoming Neomorph POP! figure based on the critter that appears in ALIEN: Covenant. It looks like this toothy Neomorph will be accompanied by it’s juvenile form, the ‘Toddler’, in this package.
I must admit, this looks… amazing. Normally, the Funko POP! figures don’t appeal to me at all; but this specimen really makes me think about purchasing one. Despite the fact that Continue reading
NECA have revealed their full line up of figures and merchandise accompanying the recent release of the new ALIEN Covenant movie. The figures are in the 7 inch range that NECA have released successfully for ALIEN and PROMETHEUS movies.
Right now, NECA look like they’re heavily investing in the creatures that appear in the movie so we can expect to see the monsters in their various forms hit toy store shelves Continue reading

The lurid red and purple vinyl cast figure will be exclusive to the event. So if you want one, turn up. Optionally, keep an eye on Super7’s online store as any remaindered stock (if Continue reading

This image appeared on NECA’s Twitter account today of ALIEN Covenant actor Danny McBride (Captain Tennessee) showing off NECA’s new ALIEN Covenant action figure of the movie’s final Alien. McBride is accompanied here by Randy Falk, NECA’s Director of Product Development.
McBride looks verrry happy with the new figure. It looks like he’s signed it, too. I’m hoping the box packaging we see here is going to be the one we see on store shelves rather than Continue reading

NECA posted an image of the blister package layout today of their upcoming Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron) action figure. The first of 3 new figures in their PROMETHEUS Lost Wave Series 4 action figures on Twitter.
Looks good to me. I always liked Vickers as a character. She was one of the brighter sparks on board the Prometheus and carried a well defined no bullshit “I like to minimise risk” attitude that the other characters lacked. Well, up until she died that is. Anyway, Continue reading
As part of my current restructuring and plan for forward movement along with using this site as my base of operations for all things hideous and plastic, I’m slowly upgrading and adding content to the site.

Links to these items already existed on this site but the content was previously hosted on AvP Galaxy. The content is now residing here under a single umbrella with all my other Continue reading
