I absolutely love NECA, tho they do have quality control issues. knee and elbow joints can wear out fairly quickly, small pegs can snap off.

personally I just accept it, but when really bad NECA will ship you a replacement part.

I'd keep it lower to the ground, if I were you...  It's a significant weight, and a fall could result in significant damage.  :(

Alien down! We have an Alien down here people!

That's a shame. Sorry my man.

I'm going to try and find a glass case just about the right size for this guy. Otherwise he will be out in the dust. And probably up high. Good heads up. If I put him up high I'll tether him in place with some fishing line.

It's a clean break.  Just needs a little CA glue.

I can't even see where the break was.

There's another quarter-scale Xenomorph I'd almost forgotten I had, since it's been hiding in a box for the past five years...

The next time the wife comes to do laundry, she's in for a nasty surprise.  :lol:

Oh man, that's super fun! I love that guy! I would absolutely have that crawling down off of one of my display cabinets! What is that one called? I'm guessing Alien 3?

I tried finding the 1/4 scale Predator (Jungle) last night but they're going for big bucks now.:(

That's Tsukuda Hobby's "Alien Creature."

Those aren't the same are they?

What is the 1/4 scale guy in the pic above called?

Yeah, that's the Tsukuda Hobby vinyl figure... although they claim it's 1:5 scale.  Given there was no suit used in Alien 3 -- just a miniature rod puppet and an animatronic head -- it's difficult to pin down exactly how large the "alien creature" was supposed to be.

Do you want a divorce? cause this is how you get a divorce. I played the face hugged joke on my ex in her sleep. That’s why she is now the ex.

No chance of that...  :huh:

She came in, did laundry, and left again... without even noticing the Xenomorph staring at her!  :unknw:

So I had this ALIEN 18in doll for almost 20 years and couldn't figure out who made it, had no manufacturer marking and bought unboxed it at a comic book shop in 1999 IIRC. Did some digging on Google and after filtering many ALIEN toys I found it was made in Japan in the mid 1990s. Don't think it has that much value, especially since the tail just broke off :(
