You don’t have to. Just read the review on this surprising little figure and find out what it’s merits – and minor demerits – really are.

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
