Sideshow Collectibles makes some great Alien figures, but this latest announcement is for one of the coolest Alien collectibles ever. The Alien Space Jockey Alien Maquette is arriving in late 2015/early 2016 and boy is it beautiful.
It measures 21″ H x 18″ W x 23″ L and is based on the character in Ridley Scott’s 1979 sci-fi horror classic Alien. Take a look at some of the images. The detail on this thing will blow you away. Totally worth the $599.99 asking price.
Long before Prometheus uncovered the origins of the Engineer and his species, the mysterious ‘Space Jockey’ captured the imaginations of movie-goers around the globe. First encountered by the doomed crew of the ship Nostromo, the haunting discovery of the enormous lonely star gazer remains one of the most memorable moments in the Alien franchise. Based on the iconic bio-organic industrial designs of Swiss artist H. R. Giger, Sideshow’s artists have faithfully captured every detail of the fossilized sentinel, a tragic traveler who fell victim to his own lethal cargo and was forever frozen, trapped in time and space.
