    The hell???? Did they teleport that out to you from California?


    I know!
    Amazing really, I wasn't even planning to be in because the estimated ship date was showing up as tomorrow.
    The Alien itself will arrive tomorrow now I believe, but at least the base is here. :)

    So far Fed Ex have been perfect. I mean 72 hour delivery aint bad. I'm praying the Alien arrives tomorrow because I'll go insane looking at just the base all weekend.
    BTW to anyone wondering; I have opened the box up and the base survived the long journey. It looks terrific, and the nameplate does not disappoint in person. Theres also a few extra details I hadn't picked up from the pictures - like a small ribbed tube effect intertwined with the surface tail motif.
    Another thing that becomes quite obvious on inspection is the way the ridges on the right side of the base (as you look at it) rhyme with the design of facehugger legs. I'm sure this was a deliberate choice on Paul Komoda's part.

    The slight bronze finish is definitely there.
    The lack of a lean is priceless.

    The lean of Raf's original Alien is pretty extreme.

    yup it is and i noticed that the holes are way too big for the rods compared to the new one. creating that lean, they really needed to be a tight fit which they are not. but will have to fix it before selling it and will also be putting the dome on permanant just see through .

    Yeah, apparently no signature required for the base so they left me that by the door.
    I'll have someone home all day tomorrow with hopefully no mishaps.

    Wow, that was some lean Raf had on his original.

    Mine will be here in a week or two.
