What would the other dad's head be?  You gotta finish once you start...  Kyle Katarn EU figure perhaps?

I'm not gonna worry about that until Owen D. finishes the custom Manhattan loft apartment playset that I've commissioned from him.   >:(

Just looking around HLJ & I came across the The 1/12 Power Loader Limited Edition piece. Seems this version comes with an exclusive portion of an android body (Bishop), $137.65 US. The normal version comes with comes with a scale flamethrower and M41 automatic rifle which they also have for $137.65 US.

For a second i was about to place an order until i saw the 1/12 scale and the price. I wish that was the 1/6 version. I would have loved a severed Bishop. Is this in scale with the snap kits?

Nah, nowhere near it...  They're pretty much perfect 1:18 scale, more or less.  The Wave 3 definitely are, Wave 1 & 2 are a little small but work fine by me in my Cantina.

Picked up NECA's 7" scale Alien the other day.  Holy crap, this is a cooooooool figure.  :)  It has all the detail I'd expect from NECA, but articulation I never would have imagined (just because NECA's figures are usually so damn static).

I've put up images and a review if anyone's interested.

Thanks for the pics.  That is a good looking figure, but I don't really like it standing vertical.  Its been a long time since I saw Aliens, but didn't they mostly move on all fours?  Seems a little too "humanoid" for me.

This is the creature from Alien, not Aliens.  In Aliens they were more animal-like in the way they moved (sometimes on all fours, but much of the time not), but in Alien it was upright a good portion of the time you saw it and intended to be more of a humanoid than an animal.

Maybe, but I don't recall seeing it upright like this at all even in Alien.  It was mostly shadowed throughout the movie, without seeing a full picture of it.  They're supposed to be the same aliens (right?), so I would chalk up any humanoid visuals in Alien to lower production budget versus canon on how these things would really look.

Anyway, I didn't want to bag on a cool toy - just not really a fan of the pose, but it is very detailed and cool looking outside of that!
