The Alien™ Franchise

Recommended Posts

Is it crazy that the biggest thing I'm excited for from everything shown, is the web gear on Ripley is wearing? It is the perfect piece for me to use for Flint, from G.I. Joe. Not kidding either, as I was never the biggest Alien, or Aliens fan growing up. I was more about Predator.

All that aside, I think these look awesome! I'll probably be picking up a few, but man, I cant wait for that web gear, lol

So is the Dump Case the "first offering" of Aliens mates? Because, that means we will have to wait forever to get these! Spring/Summer for the dump, later for everything else. I can't wait!!!! These look amazing!

EDIT: Some questions:

1) Zach, did you find out about the Alien foot pegs?

2) Is the inner jaw removable on the open-mouthed Aliens?

3) Do you think there will be a "crawling" Alien with a tweaked head/chest sculpt to allow the Alien to look forward while on all fours? Or is this possible with the current design?

I'm so psyched for this line, dammit take all my money!!!

I have a question for everyone, I know I will be army-building the Xenomorphs, but if they release a smooth headed Xenomorph like the first one from Alien, would that make a difference to you? I prefer the smoother look overall but not enough to quibble about it.

I would enjoy having a smooth head Xeno, but I can deal with either version, I just want XenoMates! I'd also like for them to be able to be on all fours with properly positioned heads....so tired of all my Aliens toys looking at the floors

Were you expecting us to release something unsolicited, as a surprise? This is the first item. I do not believe we will have anything sooner. But we'll see, each item develops at its own pace.

EDIT: Some questions:

1) Zach, did you find out about the Alien foot pegs?

2) Is the inner jaw removable on the open-mouthed Aliens?

3) Do you think there will be a "crawling" Alien with a tweaked head/chest sculpt to allow the Alien to look forward while on all fours? Or is this possible with the current design?

1. Never got a definitive, "Yes, we will make sure the feet match the peg," but I can post the control art, which shows standard foot peg on the base and a fairly wide Alien foot.

2. By inner Jaw, do you mean the tongue? I do not believe the tongues will be removable. We're making open-mouth AND tongue-displaying versions, and I have not seen that that is removable part. It would be very small.

3. I do not think the current figure can be modified for that kind of usage, but I will ask, and Ask DST!

Thank you for the details, Zach. Regarding the release, I was expecting a Ripley in the first release, possibly a con-exclusive 2-pack or 4-pack. And, yes, I was hoping that there would be something available in the next few months (C2E2 ;) ), not Summer. These look too awesome to wait for, but they also look to be worth the wait.

I don't know how expansive the license is, but has any future thought been given to "Kenner-izing" some Aliens down the road? I know I've already got my extra Battle Beasts Spiders and Scorpions to make some hybrids. :)

Actually... that meme may back up your point...

EDIT: I feel really bad and uncomfortable about this entire joke. Like making fun of a fat kid. In fact, can we please go make fun of fat kids so I can stop feeling bad? tongue.png

The only fat kid that SHOULD be made fun of is the 1 ton kid.( actually no, we should club his mother for letting it get to that point). Sigh... sometimes I educational T.V. Sorry to derail topic. Woo-hoo! Go Aliens!!!!

I bullied a tubby kid in cub scouts once. I didn't even know I was doing it at the time. I've always felt really awful about that.

We need that as a mate so bad! Although, I'm pretty sure for DST to pull that look off, we would need to have skin tone added onto a white crotch? lower torso piece....

Is that the price of the dump case? Where'd you find that?

Like three pages back. Pretty sure that's the price, using my rudimentary math. 5.99 X 12.

And I don't know how my joke about female Minimates not selling (I know we all want them, especially TM2) turned to bullying the overweight, but as far as I know we're hoping to make all of the women I'm the movie eventually.

Newt's mom, the nurse when Ripley is awoken after being found, and the datascreen version of Ripley's daughter who died an old women while Ripley was floating in space? Deep!

Ripley's daughter, Amanda Ripley, is the main character of the upcoming ALIEN: Isolation survival horror game. I was skeptical after the Colonial Marines disaster Gearbox made, but the new game looks very good, and has the design and atmosphere of the original ALIEN movie. Only one ALIEN in the game, too. Hopefully we'll finally get a great game from the franchise.
