Actually all the pictures looks great. I got a cinematic vibe. I also like the underwater Aliens and the Neos. Can't wait for the AVP collectible photography.  8)

As much as I tend to dislike the Eaglemoss stuff, those Resurrection shots look pretty f**king sweet!

Very nice!!

And Eaglemoss has never looked so good!

Hoping there's a Predator in your collection waiting in the wings!

AVP is next and then it'll be all Predator for four sets after those.

These are great, especially like the brownish backgrounds. Are all the backgrounds photoshopped?

I still haven't got a Big Chap figure. I meant to get Kotobukiya's version but it's going for crazy amounts now on ebay.

Thanks, D!

I've done color and exposure editing but none of the backgrounds are photoshopped. The only images with non-practical backgrounds are the Deacon, Trilobite, and Fifield, where I used my computer screen as the background. For the Deacon and Trilobite, they're screenshots I took in Colonial Marines just for background ambience, and Fifield is just a royalty free fire image.

Yeah the Kotobukiya Big Chap is great, still my favorite one that I own. Here's a few shots I've taken of that figure last year:







Like you said, it is unfortunately getting expensive and difficult to find, but I really love the more recent Mafex one as well. Probably my 2nd favorite Big Chap and the best one with articulation.

I have thought about making my own sort of diorama backgrounds. The platforms that came with Kotobukiya is great. I just wish I could get more of it.

I thought about just getting NECA's 40th Anniversary Big Chap.

Kotobukiya really did make a nice set, and the tile/wall panel configuration options that were included were pretty sweet. Also did a few shots of the other ones from them:




Still hoping they eventually do some Predators or ADI-style Aliens.

NECA seems to be doing some interesting new releases with their ultimate figures, I've been starting to warm back up to their offerings... a little.

You should definitely give some custom dioramas a try, would be cool to see what you come up with.
