Thanks Cory.  Lots of the other Pred to be found (well, 2 on the pegs for a couple of days) but no luck with that one.  Love that oozing green blood.

Need to find the wife a Trinity figure.  

I swear, I'm going to turn her into a collector yet.  She works in the Phys Ed faculty at the local University so I gave her a white Vick already.  Trying to find a black Vick as well.  Will get her a Patrick Roy when NHL5 comes out and then add in a Trinity.  The path to the dark side is not always so clear...

I just bought the Dog Alien and Predator the Hunter figures, the first McFarlane figures I've purchased in YEARS. These things are surprisingly well articulated and as good looking as ever. They're perfect for my Art Asylum Enterprise bridge invasion.  ;D

I can't wait to get my hands on that Alien Queen. She looks freakin' HUGE. I might have to ditch all my old Kenner Aliens figures in favor of these bad boys.

(Sidebar - Who'd have thought Kenner would have marketed toys based on an R-rated film about a creature that rapes your face, ejaculates down our throat, and bursts through your chest to children age 4 & up? Nice.)

Ha!  Found the other Pred today.  Now I need to get hold of the Predator from the two pack.  Whoo-hoo!

Today as a gift I received the Alien Queen box set. This thing is huge!! I can't believe the suggested retail is only $19.99. Though I am not sure how much Tyler spent on it for me. Yeah Tyler is the guy that I am currently with. :) He bought it for me at the Comic Book store. Anyways, the Alien Queen stands about 14" tall and her base connects to the victim's base. The victim has a button on the back that shoves out the baby alien through the chest. Pretty neat!!

When connected together the thing is about 18"+ inches long. A very large and nice display piece for any Aliens fan.

The other Alien figures in series 6 are so small next to the Queen.
Tomorrow if I have time I will take a few pictures and post them for you to see.

I saw this at a collector store today for $39.99 Cdn.  I totally agree it is huge and graphic.  Pretty neat and if I was into the Aliens I'd buy it in a second. Even at that price, it's worth it.  The US price is a bargain and if you were only considering getting it, get it.  Boba Binks description is great and you should at least see this thing once.  Wow.

Ok, Tyler said he paid $24.99 for this set.
So without any more delays, here are some quick images that I took.









The two bases can be connected in different ways pending for your purpose. I now have to rearrange my shelf so I can place this massive set.

Hey Boba,
can you snap some pics with a regular or dog alien in to give it some perspective.  Those pics are great but don't really give and impression of the size of this puppy.

Yes, I have more pictures.
Here they are.


Victim, Dog, Queen, Warrior, Ped -vs- Alien


The Queen is hunched over. You can pose her so she stands up some more but it looks goofy.


Doggy wants a snack. :)

Those are sweet pictures David. I heard rumors that they hit TRU here in the city & I am going to check it out tomorrow. I can't wait.

The Queen has hit TRU?  Hmm, if that's the case and I can save $10, I may grab her.  Of course those saving will be offset immediately by the fact I'd probably by the warrior alien as well.  Maybe I just shouldn't go look. ::)

Nice pics.

I literally have to hold myself back from buying more of these guys. I've got 2 of the 2-pack (1 Alien, 1 Predator),  2 Dog Aliens, 1 Alien Warrior (hoping they release the Alien Warrior from "Aliens"), 2 Pred the Hunters, and 2 of the masked Pred....and the Queen to top it all off!

I did a head swap on one pair of the MM6 Preds though, so one of the masked Preds has no blood on it, and one of the open mouthed Preds has the removeable arm and looks like he's screaming in pain. Sweeeeeeet.

I'd really like to see McToys continue the Aliens and Predator figures in their own line. They did such a great job with these, now I want to see the Predator from the first movie with the MM6 articulation. And some skulls.

Are you only interested in the Predator? If so, perhaps we could come to an arrangement?  ;)
