The power loader controls in Ripleys hands should be attached to the power loaders arms, I'm open to be corrected if I'm wrong.

Yes, the controls should be attached to the arms. I'm sure corners had to be cut for cost reasons. I'd love to know how much articulation the loader features.

Saying that, to me it looks like the controls in the figures hands might attach to the arms, maybe.

I sense a small cable attachment a la ghostbusters guns....

Or a small connector piece like Drake's smart gun.

Yes. Bingo.

You know, dammit, I was only in for Marvel MiniMates. I've held the line this entire time. And now this *#@$. I'm going to have to go all in on Predator and Aliens.

Well played, DST. Well played.

The prototype showed during the NYTF had the controls attached to the powerloader arms. I think that's is just a mistake during this photo shooting, maybe someone didn't pay much attention on assembling. I really thinknthe final product wil, have this fixed.

I see stuff like that in product photography all the time; guns held backwards, backpacks upside down, missing components, figures shot backwards. They apparently don't always have someone familiar with the product in the studio when it's being photographed. Hasbro and Mattel are notorious for it. Hopefully that's the case here.

That is also how the figure was displayed at C2E2, I'm pretty sure I asked Zach about it and we are getting what is solicited, the Minimate just holds the controls that aren't attached to anything.

As far as articulation goes, the claws spin, the arms move at the shoulder, not sure if the elbows bend (don't remember), and the welding torch moves up or down, but there is no articulation from the waist down. The Minimate just kind of snaps into place in the molded legs.

I'd have settled for something like this for the Age of Ultron Hulkbuster. Snap that Iron Man into place, close the front, and we're golden.

And technically it's an accessory, not a figure, right? thumbsup.gifyes.gif

Hopefully if these DLX sets sell well, DST can repurpose the Queen tooling and give us an egg-laying closed mouth Queen variant in Series 2.

I'd often have wet dreams about that very thing.

I like the free floating controls. It makes for much easier posing of the Power Loader's arms and then you can move Ripley's hand close to the middle of the arm and it should look pretty natural. Messing with the Power Loader I made out of Lego's having the Minimate hold the controls attached to the arms was the biggest problem. This looks like a great way around that issue

This is how to have fun with the franchise. I'm glad Fox allowed it.

As for the floating controls on the power loader, is this a deal-breaker with anyone here? It isn't with me. If I want 'em connected, I'll figure it out myself. For now, we'll just assume they're wireless, subcontracted to Nintendo.

Not really an issue. I love it actually. Gives you more freedom for posing since the minimate body is smaller (and cant turn as much) as the loader.

Wait. Wait wait wait wait. WAIT.

How come the Deluxe Alien Sets are being listed as separate, but Luke is listing them as whole?

Just wondering, though I would prefer them whole.
