Not sure about the models they would’ve used. I haven’t seen anything of that scale really from that era. There’s a great video on YouTube where the game’s producer James Hampton gives a pretty good account of the process of making the game. It includes a segment about how they had to repeatedly buy and ship models of the Queen because UK customs would  frequently seize her under pornography legislation! She almost didn’t make it into the game for this reason. He eventually “smuggled” it in via a local model shop in the US and posted it himself. There are several pictures of this model in the video but I can’t make out the brand name on the box.

Looks like the queen is a Halcyon 1/12 scale model kit in the "Movie Classics" line. Interesting.

Looked it up online and you’re definitely right.

I checked out eBay listings for the normal alien from Halcyon to check and it doesn’t look like they used the Alien Warrior mold as it has the ridged head and is upright but their Alien 3 mold is a dead ringer! Looks like we have our winner!

I always wondered why they changed it.

Just going by the sprites as they appear. The replacement is a more contrasted color with the backgrounds of the base, it's a little more refined, and I think the scale is a little better. The Big Chap sprites make em look twice as big as a Predator in certain situations, also it seems a little more jagged and the monochrome color blends into some of the base walls a little more.



As to the model mystery that still leaves the Predator. The Halcyon Predator 2 kit does not have a mask. Though they could still have used it as a base, I guess.
