Drake and Apone will be using the voices of the original actors. Nothing else to share about returning characters at this time.

DUDE.  Worth it for that Power Loader and the movie characters alone!  Rips flamethrower FTW.  That's great, looks like a definite buy for me, maybe even if the game bites it. :laugh:

Wow. Color me surprised that they were able to get the actors' likenesses.

It's the PR/Flamethrower combo that has me interested. Verry interesting. Can't wait to see that in action.

And to be able to play as Hicks! :)

I'm already imagining entire squads of Apones or Hudsons running around the map, everyone firing off movie lines as the shit hits the fan. :laugh:

Can someone translate the German, because... That last item looks suspiciously like one of Hudson's oft-alluded 'sonic electronic ball-breakers'. :)

That plasma rifle looks very cool, sort of Aliens + Alien: Resurrection designs.  I'm digging it.

Anybody know what that box on the right is?  I can't tell if it's a display/diorama type thing or what.

It's the box it all comes in and i think there are panels that fold out of it that you can use as a diorama for the powerloader.

The Limited Edition will come with four playable movie characters in the form of Private Hudson, Corporal Hicks, Private Drake and Sergeant Apone, along with some special customization options for your Marine. Lastly, you’ll also get your hands on the duct taped Pulse Rifle + Flamethrower that Ripley used on her trip into the Alien hive near the end of the film. One can assume that the Limited edition is most likely a pre-order bonus type of thing.

Next we have the Collector’s Edition which comes with everything included in the Limited Edition and more. You get the four playable movie characters, customization options and Ripley’s Flamethrower. It also includes a high quality Power Loader figure made of resin packed inside a limited Xeno Hive Box. Exclusive multiplayer weapons such as the Sonic Electronic Ball Breakers and Phase plasma rifle. There is also an exclusive Level featuring a firing range at the USCM Academy, as well as a plethora of paper goods like the USCM-dossier’, commission, floor plans of the USS Sephora, personal information sheet, LV-426: Reconnaissance photo, a USCM-Iron-on Badge, USCM’s degree certificate.

Thanks, dudes.  Man that's some cool shit, LV-426 reconnaissance photos?  Those could be very cool, or just as easily be quite lame. :laugh:  Same with the Sephora, I'd hope for a near identical match to the Sulaco so you could basically be getting Sulaco blueprints...

Still, the coolness.

Do you think that Michael Biehn will sue them for using his likeness?  LOL.

Also, I think in all fairness that they should include a skin for Vasquez.  She is arguable one of the most well-developed and colorful characters of the film.  I would much rather prefer to see her than Drake or Apone. 

No skin for Ripley?!? wtf?

Maybe the entire crew of the Sulaco will be available as downloadable content.  Fingers crossed.

All in all, this looks like an excellent collector's edition.
