So we’ve already been privy to the last two series of Alien related merchandise from the current license holder for Aliens and Predators (more specifically Alien and AvP Requiem) but now it’s time for the Daddy, Giger’s Alien itself. Figures.com has just posted up a review on this baby:
“NECA’s sculptors have painstakingly captured every wicked detail of Giger’s gorgeous nightmare. Where many companies have injected their own artistic freedoms into the design, NECA’s Alien is – compared to the volumes of Alien reference I own – as true to the original design as you can get. The intricate sculpt truly shines on this massive scale; an experience akin to being next to the real thing.”
This review talks about the 18″ variant of the figure and it praises it to high heavens and back. There’s some really nice pictures as well as comparison shots of the ages old Kenner 18″ Alien figure. Be sure to read the whole thing. Thanks to XenoVC for the heads up.
