Super7 ALIENS Warrior Gallery Updated.

Super7’s new 18 inch ‘Classic Toy Edition’ ALIENS Warrior is now available from their online site.  I’ve added 45 images of the figure to its HIDEOUS PLASTIC Gallery page.  Check it out.

The additions to the Gallery are the first of an extensive 3 part coverage of the figure I am engaging in.  Tomorrow I will be writing and posting the product review. In the days following that, I’ll also be writing up a comprehensive comparison of Super7’s new figure with the original Kenner toy.  So there’s a ton of stuff yet to come in regards to this newly released member of the Kenner ALIEN action figure family.

Don’t forget to check out the rest of the Gallery for images of the original Kenner figure and it’s derivatives.   There’s so much stuff tucked away in there, you’ll be surprised at it all.

Just like all the items appearing in the Gallery, this figure will also feature in the book HIDEOUS PLASTIC – In stores everyone can hear you scream. A Kickstarter campaign is currently active for this Project. Please support this amazing and unique Project.
