Patience! I hear they're hiring temps for the holidays, so who knows? You might open the door to this guy delivering the thing...

So do we know what happened with all the plagiarism accusations and whatnot? Obviously it all got sorted somehow if it's actually shipping now.

I'd definitely be interested to hear some impressions from people who are getting it.

I'm not totally sure but I'm guessing 20th Century Fox endorsed it in the end and licensed it for a cut of the royalties as their logo is all over it.

My copy finally arrived yesterday. It looks like Mike Tyson's been practising with it. Not too happy there. The tail on my Alien figure sits below the figure base, causing it to not sit even on the table. So, just a bit miffed with this one. Not even bothered looking at the rules yet.

That seems like a pretty big oversight. It always amazed me how and why such obvious things like that get past their quality control and approval processes.

The Hot Water Trick might help you here: put that baby in a bowl of hot water until it becomes pliable, bend it back into shape, then stick him in the freezer for a few hours.

Very much looking forward to your review!  :)

The freezer probably isn't necessary, just have a bowl of boiling water and a bowl of ice water.

I had a small hole in the back of the box and it looks very slightly crushed on the edges but the contents are fine.
