So I blew these images up. I am praying these are 4" figures. They must be... And they come in, from what I read there, 1:6 scale (12" figure) Alien egg packages? Are you f'n kidding me? Now THERE is marketing people... THAT is how you get people interested in EVERY aspect of collecting. Imagine if 3.75" SW figures came in some kind of packaging you used for collecting? Incredible.
The articulation looks better on the marines anyway. Looks like there's sturdier joints to plug in. More gear too by far. I'm hoping removable helmets, not glued on stuff with half-heads. I want Hicks and Apone for custom SW heads as well as my aliens figures. Ripley is a great generic female head, and Drake looks really rocking. Good arms for customs it seems... Bare-armed figures and ****. Sleeves up are hard to find good in this scale too.
Not to mention the pulse rifles and stuff look great... I must have the other Marines now though and the android...
Oh and not to mention the KICK ASS aliens in this set too. 3 types, all unique, and all more true to the Aliens film as opposed to Alien or AvP... They have the "human" physique, very cool, and not only do you get 3 types but you get THREE battle damaged types in the series too with bullet holes and crap.
The only thing I want now is face huggers that can latch to faces, and I'd like to see figures from the Nostramus's crew in Alien... Maybe some Alien Resurrection figures too since there were interesting characters there and LOTS of good stuff to build on. A playset would be so awesome but not in this company's style. Who wouldn't want a hallway set though, or a Resurrection Alien holding pen or something... Oh! I know now, I want a colonist victim figure with chestburster. We need chestbursters from this company too, forgot those.
Oh and I want the wormy guy from My Two Dads too... I don't recall his character's name off-hand but I want that figure.
