Yeah I had the 18 inch Alien figure. It was awesome! Priscilla the girlfriend would get so scared at it though that she used to throw a towel over it everynight! When we moved from the house two years later she convinced my father to leave it behind without me knowing...Arghhh! Now the toy is worth $500.....Should I ask her for that? LOL
So cue 1986, I am in a different theater...A little more grown up and I spot this standee. It did NOT have a title on it. Just eggs. I knew what it was. This was before the age of internet. I called Dad from the movie theater I was so excited. I told him Alien 2 was on the way. He got excited over the phone too. I really had no idea if it were Alien 2 or not. I let my excitement get the best of me. Turns out it was though.
So cue 1992. I find ALIEN figures in the stores! Why didn't they have them out when the frickin movie was out? Never found the Queen pictured above....But I did find....
The human aliens...Bishop is some kind of Terminator....Apone has a cybernetic arm. Um....Ok....I bought them anyways. I do not have them today though. A girlfriend I dated obsconded with many of my toys for her kid. Namely my entire Jurassic Park collection and the Aliens. There may have been more. I have forgotten over time.
Then in 93 Alien 3 came out and for me at the time, sucked....So with Alien 4 etc. Now don't shoot me....But I liked the Alien vs. Predator films. Both of them. So that is my Alien memory. I have 1-3 on DVD as I have come to appreciate the 3rd one now in my old age. I have already blogged before how I wish Hasbro would do an entire 3 inch Alien line. Complete with LD426 battle playset.
