MisterPL (and all),
Got my Hot Toys figure case in the mail today. WOW. Kicking ass and taking names.
I have 2 gripes really...
-Fragile... If you don't heat them with hot water during construction, you risk a lot with these. I broke a ball/socket on an Alien already and am desperately trying to fix it with a screw/rivet type method... I shoulda been a neurosurgeon with this kind of intricate work.
-Fall apart Easily... Kind of more a problem with Predators than Aliens though. It's annoying that he pops apart a little too easy for my liking.
They're fairly poseable figures... The Aliens are a bit moreso than the Preds, as the preds are hindered at times by looser joints and their armor. The preds sport tremendously superior detail, which is no slight on the Aliens who are among the most intricately sculpted figures in this scale I've EVER SEEEN.
The Preds just feature everything from a REAL necklace of mini-skulls (Yes, a piece of string with teeny tiny skulls), to their mesh suits, and separately sculpted teeth pincer thingies. The Preds just wow you. Their knives fit in sheaths, their backpack gun swivels and aims with a multi-jointed arm.
To import these it cost $10-ish a figure. Hasbro just found a new benchmark to meet because I'm sure in Asia these are about the same price as a regular SW figure is in the states.
So these are pretty incredible... Plus I think I got a chase figure of an Alien.
MisterPL, did you get a red-colored alien? The packaging doesn't show anything save for a translucent alien, a "grid" alien, a basic "warrior" alien, and a different warrior with his mouth open and the inner-jaws out.
I also got this RED alien though. Completely different from the others and not listed on the packaging. I did not get the Eldar predator which irks me. I wanted him pretty badly but to no avail.
Did you get that one MisterPL? Or this red alien? Or did anyone get one of these for that matter?
