Cool props have a gallery stocked full of images of their upcoming statue of the creature from ALIEN. At 1:3 scale it’s going to be a decent size. As the Alien measures about 8 feet tall, this statue will be around the 2’8″ in height.
The Cool Props website is completely in Japanese – so we’ll have to wait until an official English website by Sideshow collectibles is available – so information is a little restricted.
I’ve been wondering why it’s called a ‘maquette’. A maquette is a 3D concept piece, a sculpture used as a model to further aid in the development of a Project – and not a finished piece, which this is. This is more of a statue than a maquette. Japanese do things a little differently, I guess.
More images after the break.
