Since you like brown xenos, did you get the Defiance Drone? It looks badass. It's the closest thing we've ever had to a Praetorian in figure form.

The Defiance one isn't that brown save for a few spots. I got it due to its resemblance to a Praetorian, its also taller than average so it can pass as one.

Absolutely! They really do fill in as praetorians perfectly. I'm not sure what they're supposed to be in the comic, as I never read it, but I think they look great. I have two of them, and they're definitely brown.

In my understanding of the comic, as I have not read it either...they are a caste of xeno that forms in the eventuality that no queen is present to make eggs. No spoilers, but they...adapt around that issue.

I finally got my hands on the Ultimate Blue Aliens Warrior, I dig it a lot. I think my only "complaint" is that the shins seem like they could warp easily and make the figure not stand straight - the prior Aliens Warriors had this problem, and it doesn't look like it's been improved.

I'm on the fence on if I like this figure more than the "domed" Aliens Warrior from the Burke two-pack, I really think that's a neat blend of the Alien/Aliens designs.

The domed warrior is my favorite, it has the best of both worlds and even though I really like the rigged warrior head, this one looks so elegant all thanks to the dome, paint job and proportions.

So you like transparent or opaque domes better?
I go back and forth, but I think the opaque dome on the Burke two-pack Alien looks fantastic.

And for the Kenner Gorilla Alien remake, I really dig the translucent dome so you can see the gorilla skull, but I display it with the opaque dome because it's more "accurate" to the old Kenner toy.

eh, it'll be the only Pred-Alien available until they get around to the one from AVP2010 so I'll take it.

Has Randy ever spoken about doing concept Pred-Aliens? I'd love to see them do Dorman's/Dual's.
This 100% ^

I'd love to see the Dorman predalien over the AVP:R one.

I always liked the 2010 AVP design the most.

I'll take Dorman's any day.

Dorman's with a regular Alien head, but his mandible face -- even better.

I appreciate it's overly spiky, but in visual terms it would help separate it from a regular Alien without resorting to bitch tits or dreadlocks.

Ooooohhhhhh. Now that is beautiful. Much better than Requiem and dare I say, better than AVP 2010 videogame. And that was my favorite predalien design. Until now.

In case those haven't seen it, 2010's Predalien:

I haven't seen it mentioned on any of the other forums, honestly I don't think anyone's asked him (a lot of people are currently focused on the Resurrection line and Wolf 2.0). It'd be cool if they did do something like that.


Agreed SIL.

The 2010 PredAlien's awful too,
just a different flavour of awful.

Ehhhh I like it. It's better than Chet. Are there any Predaliens you like? Maybe the one from Duel?

The Duel one is just Dorman's design.

The only thing worse than Chet was the concept art for Chet where it was an eyeless, naked Predator.
