Hot Toys Aliens

Most collectors would gasp if they saw this....all six Hot Toys Aliens figures removed from their packaging. These were the most detailed and amazing Aliens figures ever released. At 12 inches, the detail put into them are outstanding, down to the graffiti on their armor.

Hot Toys released the first three (Hicks, Vasquez, Apone) in 2006, shortly followed by the second set (Drake, Hudson, Ripley). Originally retailing for about $80-90, the sold out figures now go on the secondary market for $250-600. Hicks and Apone command the highest prices.

Hot Toys later released a 1/6th scale Power Loader, including Ripley figure. Would have been nice to see a few more of the Marines released (Dietrich, Frost, Gorman) and maybe even Burke.

The alien eggs are from the Hot Toys Snap Kits line. Each case of snap kits came with 12 eggs. Inside the egg was a 1/18 scale Alien or Marine action figure you could snap together. Quite fragile, it would have been awesome to see an enter line of 3 3/4 inch figures from Aliens along with vehicles and playsets.
