Yep. Thanks Zach!

I had tried copying and pasting the URL in the original video post, but it just says that it is an internal link and cannot open. I actually searched for what I assumed was the video based on the comments and have now subscribed to collect DST. Great blogs you do, Zach, although the endings are a little awkward.... :P

Very psyched to see a few marines in there. In fact, aside from a Power-Loader, this is just about everything i deemed a 'must have' from an Aliens wave of Minimates.

Zach, apologies if this has been asked elsewhere, but will there be any egg or face-hugger accessories in this line? I know they aren't really 'chracters' as such, but they'd look awesome in a display of Aliens.



EDIT: OMG - and the Queen! How did i forget the Queen pinch.gif

We're going to have some different Xenomorphic accessories, yes. Queen may not happen right away, but I think we all want to make one.

I didn't think my endings were that awkward, but I'll start editing them out.

I didn't notice the ending to be honest. Gonna buy the crap out of some Aliens Minimates. Seriously.

Awesome! I would just like to reiterate that it would be very cool to see some combination of an open egg/closed egg/facehugger/chestburster in each 2-pack. If it comes down to having to choose between the various stages of xenomorph or clear plastic stands, I say ditch the stands. It would just encourage more stand sales at the conventions. smile.png

Not sure we'll be able to get one of those into every two-pack. Some of the guns these guys come with are pretty bulky, as are the Aliens themselves, which doesn't leave a lot of room. And I think people are gonna NEED those stands.

Other accessories > stands

Do the Aliens have a standard Minimate-sized foot peg? Or do they use the smaller size seen with AoU Ultron, the Reapers, and ASM Lizard? I ask because my AoU Ultron and my Reapers all came with small holes and regular stands.

And will these come with the larger stands (early TWD) or the smaller ones?

How long do we have to wait for these again?

I need larger quantities of stands anyway, so don't skimp on them.

Good question about the stands. I'll ask about it. Not sure about the hole size, but hopefully we can get it to match the peg.

Cylons .

Cylons ?

I never figured out why BSG Cylons never had holed feet ?

I have this uneasy feeling about the 'Aliens' confused.gif

I see a stand on the control art, and the feet look broad and flat enough (unlike the Cylons) to include a peg of that size. But I will confirm.

Hm.

- Ripley I

- Vasquez

- Hudson

- Hicks

- Newt

- Ripley II

- Alien Warrior

I know Aliens is considered a relatively finite line but I'm still concerned that DST is not only putting so many really popular characters in the first series but putting a variant of the main character in it as well. It's reminding me of the previous Star Trek line that was TOS-heavy and had so many Kirk figures.

Maybe the art shown doesn't indicate a final debut assortment but that's honestly the first thing that struck me.

Now let's see some vehicles, please. cool.png
