One of the scariest creatures in all of science fiction is the Xenomorph from the Alien series. That creepy creature with its double mouths only wants to kill you. It will kill you even after you kill it, thanks to its acid blood.
The most memorable thing for me about Alien and all the other films in the franchise isn’t the queen alien, it’s the facehuggers. The thought of something laying eggs inside of you that then eat your guts and burst out of you is creepy as hell.
Aliens is one of those classic science fiction/horror films that we all know and love. There are plenty of Aliens action figures on the market already. In fact I talked about a gigantic Xenomorph queen action figure a few weeks back.
When you are stalking down the halls of an abandoned space station during the day, killing acid bleeding aliens and trying to relax at night, you’re going to need a beer at some point. You could open the beer with your teeth like some sort of dentally-challenged frat boy, but you will need those choppers for steak at some point.
Aliens fans may recall Bill Paxton as Private Hudson, the guy that talked all badass until the Xenomorphs showed up. Then he was all like “Game over, man! Game Over!“ If you are a fan of the Private, some new action figures are over at ThinkGeek you might want.
Perhaps the most famous scientist alive today is astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson. He has his own internet meme and is the host of the major network TV show Cosmos. Tyson recently talked about alien contact being the next frontier.
We’ve seen Nathan Shields work his pancake magic before, using the galaxy far far away as his theme. Well, he is back in the kitchen, and presumably wearing an Ewok apron as he creates more magical flapjacks.
Sideshow Collectibles will release two Xenomorph busts this year. Both the Big Chap and the Alien Warrior will be in “Legendary Scale”, the toy maker’s term for 1:2 scale. Unless we’re talking about a Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann scale model, I refuse to call anything that’s half the size of the original “Legendary”.
We’ve actually seen a baby in a Power Loader costume before, but it doesn’t get old. There’s something very creepy and unsettling about seeing a baby in control of a multi-ton machine capable of crushing an Alien Queen like a bug.
ThinkGeek is always selling really cool toys and other gadgets that celebrate some of the coolest movies in all of geekdom. One of those cool movies, Aliens, also happens to be one of my favorite films.
I don’t know about you but I wouldn’t take a bath with the Alien queen or her babies. But if you do encounter their nasty saliva and get all grimy from fighting them, you need to clean up once it is all over.
While I’d personally love to have a full-size Aliens Power Loader exoskeleton suit, I don’t think I have enough room to store it in my garage. This little LEGO model is the next best thing, and you can win one, thanks to our friends at Ichiban Toys, and our new website, MightyMega.
I’m not too keen on the lightsaber chopsticks; having my food all lit up isn’t so appealing to me. But I’m not sure I like these Aliens chopsticks either. These could be good for dieting though, because they might help gross out someone into eating less.
The much hyped not-Alien-prequel Prometheus met with mixed reviews from critics and moviegoers. But I think we can all agree that this LEGO version of the titular ship made by Andrew Lee scores a solid 8 space tomatoes.
