The Alien™ Franchise

It looks like "Alien Warrior" from the Dump Case is supposed to be the same as "Warrior Alien" from LCS Wave 1, but Ivan has categorized them in the DB based on the name given by DST (as he should).

Alien Warrior (from Dump Case)

Warrior Alien (from LCS Wave 1)

It looks to me like they are the same lower jaw pieces, the LCS version is just glued in position in a way that makes it hang open. Whether or not that is intentional....

So the TRU assortment is ....? The exclusive packs are ?

I'm sorry if I've missed this elsewhere? blush.png

This is why I prefer different threads for different assortments.

I appreciate the effort but I'm still no wiser confused.gif

The TRU assortment has no exclusive figures, just exclusive pairings. It has:

-Rescue Mission Ripley/Alien

-Battle Damaged Hicks/Alien

-Vasquez/Alien

-Hudson/Alien

It takes four figures from series 1 and series 2 that are paired together (Ripley/Hicks Vasquez/Hudson) and instead pairs them with aliens. I hope this helps biggrin.png

Technically for packaging completists like BHM, the entire wave is unique to TRU. The Vasquez/Alien pack is the only one with the silver TRU exclusive sticker.

- Ripley/Alien (both are identical to LCS Wave 1)

- Hicks/Alien (both are identical to LCS Wave 1)

- Hudson/Alien (currently, both are unique to TRU Wave 1)

- Vasquez/Alien (currently, both are unique to TRU Wave 1)

Per Luke's listing, the LCS Wave 2 is comprised of the following:

- Vasquez/Hudson

- Ripley/Newt

- Frost/Burning Alien

- Crowe/Attacking Alien and Eggs

I stopped by TRU on the way home from work. They had these out. I had planned on waiting for the specialty Hudson and Vasquez, but I broke down and bought them. And I'll probably get the specialty set too....

Some pictures of the sets.

What's that at Vasquez's feet? Is that a newborn? Yes, yes it is.

"Hello my baby, hello my honey, hello my ragtime gaaaal"

I'm going to make a tiny hat and cane for mine, whenever my shitty Tru decides to order something more exciting than 80 2 foot Super Marios.

More than likely it's not exclusive and will be one of the Wave 1 specialty packs. I'm just making assumptions here, but that's the most likely case based on similar items I've gotten in Loot Crates

Not sure if anyone posted it. But does anyone have the 6 digit item number for these? The website doesn't have them up yet. I want to call around to see if these hit anywhere near me. Thanks

What makes the Screaming Alien packed with TRU Hudson different from the Warrior Alien packed with DST Apone? Just looking at the pictures I'm not seeing the difference.

I can see that the Battle-Damaged Alien packed with TRU Vasquez has a closed mouth, while the single-pack one has an open mouth. So I'm wondering if that alien is the only true exclusive in this TRU wave and the reason they put the sticker on that one.

Someone has a review of the Hudson/Vasquez packs here:

The jaw is a different piece. The Warrior Alien has a closed mouth jaw that's been glued a little more open than normal, while the Screaming Alien has the fully open jaw that usually has a tongue sticking out of it

Thanks, got it. Sounds like the newborn alien accessory is new also. Does that come packed with Vasquez or Hudson? The review I linked says Hudson but the picture here shows it by Vasquez.

why is Ripley's hair so short in the Alien 35th anniversary boxset? I thought her hair was much longer in the first movie

Her hair is longer in the movie, but it seems DST didn't have the budget for a new sculpt, so they just used the El Indigo piece they were using for Aliens Ripley

The Ghostbusters Dana hair/head works pretty good on the Alien Ripley as a QC.I think it looks a bit better than the short hair.
