    It's wicked I love the base. I wish CM would do the Aliens Warrior all the time when I look at my Alien.

    Thanks guys. Those 3 pieces together really are a grail of this hobby.
    I tried to open up some windows and turn on a light to at least show the new dome. In these pics he looks black but the body still has that bronze finish.

    I agree Greg. To me this one is more special because it's attached to a cool place like CBD and the limited nature of it.
    The concept base is gravy on top. I always felt that when you looked at Predator and T800 somehow Alien got the shaft in the cool base department. The AP base takes care of that with an overkill of coolness.

    It does indeed José. The one thing that impressed me about this piece was the paint apps. IMO, the paint apps make it look even more realistic, and I thought the non-AP was fantastic.

    looking killer LArs! although I noticed the head on your alien seems to be darker than mine (more smokey in color) but it could just be the picture?

    Thanks guys. Still not sure how I managed to broker the consensus to get this into the living room. :lol:
    But then again this and the Giger Spell 1 (in the background) will remain the only two pieces in there. The Pred who's in an identical cabinet and the rest of the collection will have to stay separated at least until another move is immanent.
    Oh and Enz I compared with Steve's specimen when I was over there and they were about the same in color and appearance. :top:
