CoolProps Producing AMAZING 1:1 Scale Alien Prop Replicas – Here’s a Taste!

June 7th, 2016

I was really stoked when I found out CoolProps had picked up several new prop replica licenses, including AvP and the Alien franchise of movies and they just posted the first look and the pre-orders for some AMAZING 1:1 Alien Warrior busts from Aliens that are faithfully based off the original molds.  I really dig the dual offering so you can get your choice of the neutral brown coloration of the props, or you can get the Blue Edition, which faithfully replicates the blue hued lighting from the Aliens movie when Ripley goes in to fetch Newt and kick some bug-ass.

Bother versions are 18″ tall and 33″ long and while the weight hasn’t been offficially announced, expect this to be in the 25lbs range.  They also both have the inner mouth visible through the silver teeth, again painted true to the original props.  CoolProps has teamed up with Sideshow for distribution and here’s the official description and details:

1:1 Scale Alien Warrior Blue Edition Life-Size Head

Sideshow and CoolProps are pleased to present the Alien Warrior (Blue Edition) Life-Size Head Prop Replica. The “Alien Warrior” was part of dozens of aliens that were propagated from the alien queen in the 1986 movie Aliens. Alien Warriors appeared many times in the movie, but only a few suits were made for shooting.

CoolProps has produced this piece based on the original mold, which captures the distinctive features of the Alien Warrior, such as its musculature around the jaw and the bony ridges running along the Xenomorph’s dome, and features an array of piping.

Faithfully reproduced and painted based on the scene when Ripley, who has just returned to LV-426, again encounters the Alien Warriors, the blue and white lighting in the dark was translated through using a deep blue paint.

Those hostile silver fangs will give you a real fear of the Alien Warrior.

1:1 Scale Alien Warrior Standard Edition Life-Size Head

Sideshow and CoolProps are pleased to present the Alien Warrior Life-Size Head Prop Replica. The “Alien Warrior” was part of dozens of aliens that were propagated fromh the alien queen in the 1986 movie Aliens. Alien Warriors appeared many times in the movie, but only a few suits were made for shooting.

CoolProps has produced this piece based on the original mold, which is without lips, and which captures the distinctive features of the Alien Warrior, such as its musculature around the jaw and the bony ridges running along the Xenomorph’s dome, and features an array of piping.

Those hostile silver fangs will give you a real fear of the Alien Warrior.

But wait, there’s more!  I know not everyone is a fan of Alien: Resurrection but I personally got a real kick out of this movie even though I thought the cloning Ripley arc was a bit much.  But it was an interesting and somewhat ballsy deviation from the standard Alien franchise, even trying to completely re-write how an Alien is reproduced.  The biggest selling point for me to be honest was that it had Ron Perlman and the AMAZING Michael Wincott in the movie, and I don’t care what you put Mr. Wincott in, you have to love that voice that sounds like gravel being poured over a rock screen.

Anyhow, along with being introduced to strategic Alien thinking and some Olympic style swimming skills, we got to see this ugly bugger:

1:1 Scale Alien Newborn Life-Size Head

alien-resurrection-alien-newborn-life-size-head-coolprops-902730-09

Sideshow and CoolProps are pleased to present the Alien Newborn Life-Size Head Prop Replica. The controversial creature, which is a hybrid of human and Xenomorph, made its shocking appearance in the movie Alien Resurrection. This Alien Newborn’s physical appearance was dramatically different from any other Xenomorph, even though it was born from the Alien Queen.

CoolProps has crafted the Newborn Head in 1:1 scale, with its curious appearance based on the original mold. Artists were able to reproduce the violent yet adorable appearance by replicating the original paintwork.

You can never look away once these cruel but innocent eyes have caught you.

This is one gooey, ugly looking badass baby, not to mention pretty huge at over 20″ high and 26″ long.  And like the Alien Warrior busts, this guy is up for pre-order and will be shipping to buyers around December 2016.

Click here for pricing and order details!

That’s it from the Alien world and CoolProps for now but you can expect a ton more cool props coming soon and I’m hoping for more Predator goodies!

Please leave a comment and tell us what you think of these new pieces!

Happy collecting,

The new Alien King Maquette is up for Pre-Order and it is CRAZY!

May 13th, 2016

I’m not a huge fan of collectibles that are not directly from the films, but I think I’ll make an exception for this one, the Alien King Maquette from Sideshow is absolutely off the chain!

aliens-alien-king-maquette-200333-06

aliens-alien-king-maquette-200333-08

This thing is INTENSE, and I LOVE the aliens scrambling around their king on the base, the detail is outstanding.  Here’s the official write up from Sideshow:

Working in direct partnership with Legacy Effects, the artists and nightmare makers behind the creatures and Queen from Aliens, Sideshow is extremely pleased to present the Alien King Maquette.

Standing as a complement to his Queen, the Alien King is a fully-realized canon character brought forth to once more haunt the dreams that Giger so carefully crafted for us all. Each angle and sharp edge speaks to the beautiful violence that this creature can bring forth should it so desire.

Standing a massive 20″ tall and 21″ long, the Alien King Maquette strikes a pose of unrelenting drive and energy, accentuated by the seven detailed alien warriors that swarm around his clawed feet.

The legacy of H.R. Giger and his film franchise continues to stand as a source of inspiration and reason to explore the outer reaches of what we find terrifying. Join us as we celebrate 30 years of Aliens with this, the Alien King Maquette.

This is a really big piece, measurig 20″ in height, 21″ long and 13″ wide and weighs 23 pounds!  The character was designed by Amilcar Fong and the final sculpt, casting and paint job is all handled by the amazing folks at Legacy Effects, which of course is headed up by John Rosengrant who you should all know from Stan Winston Studios.  By the way, if you don’t know who Amilcar is yet, I highly recommend you google him and prepare to drool.

Want to see more?  CLICK HERE for all the details or to place a pre-order!

OK one more pic before the jump… MY BABIES!

And now to figure out how to sneak this in to the house without the missus knowing about it.  It ships next year so at least I have a year to plan!

Happy collecting!

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – The Movie Tanks but the Collectibles are AWESOME!

March 27th, 2016

I am REALLY sad that the new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is absolutely getting torn a new one by critiques all over the world and is currently hovering at 29% on Rotten Tomatoes as I write this.  I was SO excite for this movie, but equally disappointing when I learned it would be directed by Zach Snyder, whom I still haven’t forgiven for the mess he made of the Watchmen movie.  Unfortunately the fears of many were realized as movie pundits started destroying this movie last Thursday.  The concept, the costumes and the controversy were so exciting and I couldn’t wait to see this unfold on the big-screen, but alas, I’ll be waiting for the torrent *ahem* Blu-ray to be available.  Such a shame, especially after finally recovering from the pain around my ribs from laughing my arse off while watching the awesome Deadpool flic.

Luckily, we’ve got Sideshow Collectibles, Hot Toys and Prime 1 Studios absolutely KILLING it on the collectibles for this movie, and the statues are nothing short of stunning.  I’m not going to list everything that you can find, but I wanted to show off some of my favorite pieces so far, starting with my favorite of the bunch, Sideshow’s Armored Batman Premium Format statue:

dc-comics-batman-v-superman-armored-batman-premium-format-300401-01

This thing is completely off the chain and the photos look so damn good!  The piece is designed by artists Rachel Roubicek and Zane Yarbrough and sculpting and casting is handled by the very competent folks over at Ironhead Studio and they put together the beautiful master build for the prototype.  This is really by far my favorite piece from the movie that I’ve seen so far, the sculpt and pose is amazing and the overall size makes this statue a giant Premium Format statue at almost 2 feet high.  And the best part?  Yeah that’s right… the light up eyes!

Check out the Sideshow Collectibles website for more photos or to place your order!

As most of my friends know, I am a huge Superman buff, so I’m a bit ashamed that I didn’t lead off with ol’ Supes, but I really dig the Batman armor suit so much, even though Superman would still kick the living snot out of Batman on any given day with his hands tied.  So let’s follow-up with a Superman piece, and I am BLOWN-AWAY by this sheer size and beauty of this piece, the Superman Polystone Statue by Prime 1 Studios:

dc-comics-batman-v-superman-superman-half-scale-polystone-statue-prime-1-902664-04

For the love of everything holy, GOOD LAWRD that likeness is bang on to Henry Cavil and the paint application is just insane, look at the quality of the skin tones from the translucent resin they used, wow!  It would appear that since I was away from the collecting scene, there’s a new company in town putting out some AMAZING pieces, and that is Prime 1 Studios.  I noticed them last year with some new pieces and believe me, my credit card was itching BADLY!  The detail and paint on this statue is insane, and the best part?  HALF SCALE!  Yep, this badboy is 3 and a half feet tall, standing at 41″.  Some other cool tidbits on this piece are the complete fabric costume (This is like a Premium Format statue on steroids), you can swap out between 2 different emblems on the base plus the base has LED lights on it for the display.  If you have the budget this gorgeous statue commands, it’s worth every penny!

Check out the Sideshow site for a TON of photos and if you want to pre-order Superman!

And finally, the Hot Toys Superman is a MUST, I have mine on order already and will be proudly displaying this guy at work in my office, which is slowly starting to look like a collection and I’m expecting a visit from HR in a month or two.  Look at this guy:

dc-superman-sixth-scale-batman-v-superman-hot-toys-902608-09

Don’t have the Prime 1 Studios kind of budget?  Here’s the next best thing because he too has the full fabric suit AND a bang on likeness on the Henry Cavill head-sculpt AND he’s fully pose-able so you can pose Superman in to whatever ass-kicking position you want!  He comes with the usual awesome features all Hot Toys sets come with such as extra hands AND the exclusive version of the figure includes a light up rock of Kryptonite just in case Supes starts getting out of line and makes moves on your girl or attempts to pilfer your fridge.

Check out all the pics and/or place a Pre-Order with Sideshow Collectibles by clicking here!

So those are my favorites I’ve seen so far, what about you?  Please leave a comment below and tell me which collectibles you love and what you thought about the film if you’ve already seen it – just keep a lid on the spoilers.

Happy Easter everyone!

Hot Toys AvP Predator Elder on Pre-Order at Sideshow and Other Goodies!

March 6th, 2016

Not sure if you guys noticed, but Sideshow collectibles has the Hot Toys Elder Predator figure on Pre-Order and it’s still available!  Last time I was actively selling these figures, they were selling for a DOUBLE what Sideshow has this at, so if you’ve always wanted to grab one of these, you might want to get your tail over to Sideshow and order one right away.  These figures are CRAZY detailed, I used to own the entire set and loved them!  These second gen ones looks awesome.

Hot Toys Elder Predator Figure

Hot Toys Elder Predator Figure

I’ve actually reviewed a couple of these figures before… I hated assembling them but they were killer when they were done.  You can check out my Predator 2 Elder review here and my Predator 2 figure review here.  Bear in mind these are some really old reviews, Hot Toys has really refined their manufacturing and these figures are better than ever now!

Sideshow also has a few other Predator goodies that are still in stock but VERY limited items left.  They have the Predator 2 full-size mask available, the Pyramid Guard Predator Mask, the Square Enix Predator figure and it looks like Sideshow is still taking Waitlist reservations for the Predator 1 Mask. If you missed out on the P1 helmet, throw your name on the list, you have nothing to lose and you never know, they might have some extras become available.

That’s about it from me for today, I’ve been working really hard at fixing up broken links and other areas of the site.  The lightbox galleries on sale items in the shop now works again properly with functioning fullscreen display (before it would load images too large), the lightbox on the news is fixed and I am slowly fixing all the images in the Predator Collectibles Index that are all busted and I added a lightbox to that as well.  I’ve updated the entire framework and fixed or suppressed weird errors and have been fixing up some broken links and such.  I see a ton of links and external sites no longer work so all that will be fixed as well.

I also tried sending a newsletter and only 75 went out before I realized an issue with the script.  I’ll need to fix that before I can resend.  FUN STUFF!

Hope you all have a great evening… back to work tomorrow.

Predator Clans

February 26th, 2014

Proving my theory that I am not the only Predator lunatic on the planet, I have been getting emails from die-hard Predator fans who are organizing themselves into ‘Clans‘.  This is basically a group of fans who have Predator suits and get together on a regular basis to do all things Predator.  As you can see from these photos (supplied by our good friend Johan in the Netherlands) many of the Clan members have done very elaborate modifications to their suits making them very individual and letting each Predator develop their own characteristics and personalities.

This particular clan meeting was held last year in as part of the Elf Fantasy Fair in Europe.  Looks like a lot of folks in various costumes – Preds, Aliens, Colonial Marine, Scorpion and others – showed up and had a great time.  Even had a Predator-Alien fight…don’t know who won but you know where my money goes.

So here is the deal.  I want to know more about these Clans so if you belong to one, shoot me an email with details about your Clan, members, activities, etc. and we will publish it here on the site.  I think this is an amazing concept – actually any time we get to put on our suits is a great time – so let me know.  Also, if you want more information about Predator Suits (they are full suits, not costumes) contact me.
