Anyone who's ordered from Eaglemoss knows they do quality sculpts at very reasonable prices, so this just-revealed P-5000 is one to seriously consider.

It's 7.5 inches tall, crafted from metallic resin, and features a base that does just the right amount of storytelling.

Check it out on their website!

 

Nostalgia alert: the Alien 3 Pixel Art Funko Pop! is officially available

We first saw a preview of this adorable guy last month; now, at long last, we can blow some money on it.

For many of us, the Genesis/SNES-era Alien 3 game was a formative Alien experience. Combining addictive platforming action with some badass art and music, Probe Software's game was eventually ported to everything from the Commodore 64 to the Game Boy.

Now, this 16-bit stalwart is gracing the seemingly infinite Funko Pop! vinyl line with its presence. Technically a repaint of the (also very cool) "8-bit" xenomorph, this Alien 3 version contains the same tricolor scheme we saw on that similarly awesome NECA runner variant from a few years back. 

It's only available through Entertainment Earth, so pick one up while you can!

Check out (and preorder) this insanely beautiful Big Chap ring!

PSYCHO MONSTERZ is a wonderful repository of weird and beautiful collectibles, and this latest piece (developed in collaboration with JAP, INC; crafted by TORCH TORCH; sculpted by Wataru Mishima; and distributed through the ever awesome Sideshow Collectibles) is a true work of art.

Measuring just under two inches in length, the xenomorph's head sculpt is deeply faithful to Giger's original. And unlike some of those "other" Alien jewelry pieces we've all wasted money on through the years, this one's cast in actual silver and is heirloom quality.

Preorders are open now, and the rings will be shipping later this year. They cost $475, which is quite reasonable considering the build quality and detailed sculpt.

If you pick one up, send us some photos when they arrive!

NECA NEOMORPH REVIEW

 Ma! The meatloaf!

Ma! The meatloaf!

 

by David Gogel

When I first discovered NECA shortly after the release of Prometheus, I had no idea what I dipped my toe into. After a brief addiction to their releases and apologizing my wallet, I only purchase them occasionally now. And it's usually just the creatures. No offense to the humans in the Alien universe, but I am all about the creatures. My name is David, what else do you expect? I was a huge fan of the Neomorph from Covenant, so I had to scoop up the figure upon release. Let's see how NECA did.

First thing you’ll notice is it looks a bit different from the version we saw in the film. That’s because this is based on the practical effect model. Quite frankly, this is the superior design. The glossed over the versions in the film, while cool looking just don’t have the same terror. According to their Twitter feed, NECA was not happy with the change for the final version and have zero plans of releasing an updated version.
