Coolprops Alien 1 Life-Size replica prop bust - approved by H.R. Giger Museum

It took some time but it has finally relased: the Coolprops Alien 1 big chap life-size bust prop replica. This is my first life-size bust and will definitely receive a special place in my colletion room - probably on a wall mount.

The first impression is stunning. It's officially approved by the H.R. Giger Museum in Gruyère, Switzerland. Along with the piece you'll get a certificate of authenticity which is signed by the museums director & former wife of H.R. Giger: Carmen Giger Scheifele - a great addition and the best we can get as proud legacy of Hansruedi.

If you want to own this piece yourself, please check out Sideshow Collectibles who teamed up with Coolprops to get this baby to you:

Here some photos and I'll definitely put up a video review soon.

Update: I found time to wall mount the Giger bust with a glass shelf (4 screws, holds up to 25kg - the bust itself with the base is approx 14kg).

Hot Toys Iron Man Mark VI -1/6 MMS378 D17 - photo and video review

I missed out to put this review on by blog at the time i got the latest Hot Toys Iron Man release: It was the Mark VI re-release and what a beauty it is. I was always a fan of this movie's suit with the triangular shaped arc reactor.

Hot Toys definitely put a lot of work into this re-release and it's far superios t han the first release, altough it's missing some parts like the battle damaged arm you get a lot of new pieces and a great base with light up stairs.
