Hot Toys Alien Warrior - Aliens 1/6 MMS354 2016 - video and photo review

It's about time! I finally  my hands on a 1/6 Alien by Hot Toys. After years of collecting Alien stuff in the early 2000s I had a break from that franchise for some years (though this channel and my nickname originated from there and the stuff i collectet at that time - mosly resin kits and statues of Aliens). I always had an eye on the original Hot Toys releases around 2006 but read about serious quality problems. Seems Hot Toys listened to collectors and they probably plan to re-release some of the Aliens now. The first release is the Alien Warrior or Drone from the Aliens movie.

The final product came out pretty good. Some limitations in terms of waist and thigh articulations are present, but for me it's a minor thing. It would have been amazing to have him in a crawling pose but it seems Hot Toys went the safe way. Excpetional is the paintjob which mimics a blend between movie accuracy of the suit (brown, black) and the ambient blue hue colored look from the movie scenes. The shine is awesome and i love the areas where you even have a pearl effect going on. The only real rubber part seems to be the gums around the mouth area - here it's suggested not to have the inner-jaw out the whole time to avoid loosing of these rubber elements.
