Get Yer ALIEN Matryoshka Nesting Dolls.

These were announced sometime earlier this year but I hadn’t realised they had been released.  All the same, PPW Toys’ ALIEN – Wood Nesting Dolls have been available for some time now.

Totally worth it for the WTF..? value, I say.  These wooden nesting dolls are just like the real thing.  Well, they are the real thing; but instead of traditional Russian dolls seated inside Continue reading

The Curious History of ALIEN ReAction Figures.

During the next weeks I’ll be looking into ALIEN ReAction figures in a series of articles.  It’s appropriate then that we start at the beginning and focus on the history of the Alien figure itself, delving into the fascinating world of prototypes and find out what makes them significant

A series of 3 written items appearing on this site explores different aspects of these popular 1970s themed ALIEN retro action figures.  This first article explores their origin and unfortunate conditions that curtailed their development in the late 1970s, how they were kept concealed from public scrutiny for decades; and their eventual phoenix-like rise from the ashes of ambiguity.

Download ALIEN Isolation Fan Art Bubblegum Cards.

A little over a year ago I assembled a faux set of ALIEN Isolation Bubblegum cards just for fun.  The set of 100 cards was created using screenshots from SEGA’s ALIEN Isolation video game combined with Topps bubblegum design sensibility mimicking their actual
ALIEN bubblegum cards released in 1979.  They turned out to be fun and popular.

Now, I’ve zipped ’em all up into a handy  package for everyone to enjoy and you are welcome to help yourself to the whole set in one easy download.  There’s actually 103 cards in the archive. The additional 3 cards consisting of a pair of outtakes and the third made purely for self indulgent reasons and is only tangentially relevant to the video game.

Feel free to download the complete set.
