Over at Spawn.com, their Online Figure Feature has gone live this evening – it’s sort of a mini-site that covers the upcoming line of new Alien vs Predator action figures. The five figures including the Grid Alien, Celtic, Elder and Scar Predator will be released in line with the AvP movie in August.

“In the new feature, you’ll have access to all the latest information on this series, including additional figure photography, specs, in-package artwork, QuickTime VRs and much more.”

It looks like they’ve gone to a lot of trouble to create this nice-looking website so it’s definitely worth checking out. Thanks to GL for the news.

Problem is, now "Scar" may not come with a removable mask. From what the site says, it seems there'll be a permanently masked Scar and a "possible" unmasked version. That sucks.

I have a feeling fox is expecting this movie to be big  ! or else they wouldnt have these kick ass things like this spawn toyu deal with Mcfarlane and the xtream desk top, posters tee shirts, book.So I taking all of it as a sign of reasurance that fox has faith in there new avp poster boy anderson and that this may turn out as good as we all expect it to.Cause seriously if fox didnt have faith in this you think they would have such a wide variaty of merchandise already floating around and most of the stuff is well made with lots of hard work and time put into each of these web site things.( xtream desktop - spawntoys page).AVP FAN wich mask r u talking about the elser or the celtic, cause the elder has two little fang things comming down off his mask were the bottom of his lower mandables are wich looks cool.But on the celtic if you refering to him im not to sure what yout talking about on him.

The action figures all look really good. I love the way the aliens look...their tubes are incredible, hands are perfect for grabbing people's heads, tails are long as hell...the only thing is: is it just me or do their heads look short; maybe im imagining things but i always thought their heads were longer and more "banana-like" not tapering off...  i remember when i had the old action figures...i had the marines, all the predators, and a few aliens...UNTIL i went away on summer vacation and my parents threw them all away! I was so distraught...haven't been able to buy another actionfigure since.

I think the Celtic Predator may be the first predator figure that I find myself wanting to buy.  As usual I will buy all the Alien figures although I am a little steamed that as with the suits in the film the 'new' Alien figures are merely repaints of the AR figures with some minor resculpting here and there.  I really wish McFarlane would get some of the SOTA sculptors to work on his toyline. Then we'd see some magical looking toys.  The below is a reposted here for Los Angeles Artist to respond to in case he missed it in the other thread. -------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------- --- Hey Los Angeles Artist very nice stuff thanks a bunch.   I noticed that the AVP Alien sculpt is lazily similar to the Resurrection sculpt, which is a damn shame. As lovely as ADI's work is, and it is lovely, the Alien has become too 'creaturey' and is straying too far from the biomechanical designs of Hans Rudi Giger which the wonderful sculptors at SOTA (for Palisades) have got down pat in their Alien busts.   I'd really like to see a return to the purposeful 'designedness' of the Necronom biomech paintings. There was a lost civilisation/ancient technology run amok look to the Alien at first that has diminished with each new picture in favour of a standard arthropod turned space-bug look that is just so ordinary looking and is becoming less 'alien' and just kind of boringly familiar instead.   I'm a Sydney (Australia of course) based writer/artist/sculptor and filmmaker specialising in make-up and effects myself and I'm actually interested in what you consider to be your strengths as an artist, ie: creature, props, make-up design etc. You know your main specialty.   Oh and by the way to those that think differently, Van Helsing stunk out loud. Seriously. If you enjoyed it more power to ya but it was a truly horrendous film, and not in a good way. Almost everything about it is woeful from conception to execution. Lame script, uneven acting, unforgivably bad CGI, overuse of said CGI. However the creature designs were interesting and Hugh's costume was pretty cool but production design alone does not a good movie make. Just ask Tarsem Singh. Heads should not roll but they should be hanging in shame.   However Van Helsing's suckitude is not what we're here to discuss.   We're here to discuss AVP's rockitude.   Which as long as it lives up to its title/premise will be without question.
