Hiya Toys is only making figures for the video game, which was a dud, but the toys are freakishly cool.
I got the Warrior and love it, and that review is definitely worth checking out if anyone's interested in buying modern Aliens figures... I just am hoping if they get to Colonial Marine figures they'll be really nice. Hiya's human figures are hit/miss. Their aliens have been flawless though so far.
I am not really up on who all is making toys for the overall Alien umbrella? There's Funko but it's all 4" retro stuff, then Hiya is all for just this video game in 4" scale. I'm not up on other scales enough to know who's doing what. I know there's a 6" or 7" line... Is that it, barring high end stuff like busts and statues and whatnot?
There have been 3 companies make high-end 4" figures over the years, but at this point only Hiya's doing anything and it's kind of funny how they're doing some things from the movie, but via the video game. You won't get Hicks, but you might get a Hicks-like guy.
I have a Hicks from Hot Toys and it'll be damn tough for them to beat those though, but their aliens are pretty damn awesome so maybe. Like I say though, their human figures for other lines haven't always been perfect.
