Our resident figure reviewer, windebieste, recently announced a project that he has been working on for the last year and a half – Hideous Plastic, an unauthorised compendium detailing the legendary 18″ Alien figure by Kenner and it’s various clones:
“Currently being prepared, ‘HIDEOUS PLASTIC – In stores everyone can hear you scream’ is a non-fiction book scheduled for release in late 2017. The book is an extensive and fully detailed investigation into the history, maintenance and continuing legacy of the notorious 18 inch tall Kenner ALIEN action figure released in 1979. It is comprised of an excess of 200 pages of information and over 180 images.
HIDEOUS PLASTIC comprehensively examines the infamous action figure and is rapidly approaching completion. An exciting KickStarter campaign supporting its publication will be launched in early 2017. HIDEOUS PLASTIC is an independent publication and is currently not supported, authorised or endorsed by 20th Century Fox or its partners and/or affiliates. “
You can find out more about the upcoming book over at the FAQ section of the Hideous Plastic website. If you’re interested in seeing a little of what is on offer in Hideous Plastic, you can check out pretty hefty preview (38 pages to be exact) and see what is in store when the book is released.
Hideous Plastic – In Stores Everyone Can Hear You Scream should be coming to Kickstarter in March 2017. Keep an eye on the website for more details.
