Sideshow scored big with the Aliens and Predator licenses. It looks like we'll see stuff from all the movies.

http://www.sideshowtoy.com/behindtheshow/?page_id=3321

Sideshow Collectibles, world-renowned producer of collectible merchandise, is excited to announce the acquisition of the license to create new products based on the Twentieth Century Fox Studios films Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, Alien Resurrection, Predator, Predator 2, and Aliens vs. Predator. The new license will allow production of collectible including statues, busts, maquettes, life-size busts, and a versatile new series of dioramas. These dioramas are displayable on a desktop or hung on a collector's wall, thanks to the inclusion of a removable base featuring the logo of each subject's film. Prices will range from $99.99 to $399.99.

From Statue Forum:


Alien Franchise Collectibles Diorama (Item No. 9102)

Limited Edition TBD

Est. to ship 4th Qtr 2007

SRP: US $149.99

Product Type: Diorama

Product Size: Approx. 13" H (330mm) x 6" W (152mm) x 6" D (152mm)

Base: Approx. 1.25" Tall (32mm)*

Est. Box Size: 15" H (381mm) x 8.5" W (216mm) x 8.5" L (216mm)*

This is actually a VERY nice price, especially with an e-tailer discount.

Had it figured for over $200, honestly. Now I'll be getting it, almost certainly.

It really looks great. And at $149.99 it's within my price range, but I won't be able to afford it if it's coming in 4th Qtr 2007; That's 1:6 Power Loader time.

That Ripley is mighty nice...

But I've decided to collect this entire diorama line. They'll all be wall-mountable, and judging by the quality of the first piece, some might actually be small masterpieces. I really love this Alien. Why isn't the preorder up yet?

Here's hoping for a reasonable (1000 or under) ES...

I'm really debating on getting it too. I've been trying to see good pics of it compared to other things. I see it next to the 12" dead dolls and it did look like a good size. I know it says it's 13". I hate to start another line of things to collect, but I've always liked the alien movies and it looks like this line is semi affordable.

Reinhardt
07-31-2007, 01:20 AM
yes, i've been on the fence as well... talking to one of the sideshow staff though, he was telling me a bit of what they have in store for the rest of the line. a swimming alien from resurrection!!!

GoreHOUND
07-31-2007, 04:44 AM
Wow, a swimming alien would be cool. Although I don't know how they'd do it if it's a wall hanging, it'd probably stick out too much. It sounds like they are doing other formats as well though. I ended up just ordering it, I can always cancel later and I'd regret it if it sold out.

BDboystoys
07-31-2007, 05:02 AM
Like this one more everytime I see it, except the head gets worse everytime too. I just dont understand why collectible companies always make the Alien heads so clear. The head isn't so prominently transparent in the film so why is it with the collectibles? Loses the coolness of Gigers design when the skull is so clear.

Reinhardt

Seretur

The cowl was quite clear on the actual prop. It's just the way Ridley filmed it -- very dark, in very short cuts. You can't ever get a proper glimpse at it. Of course it's not going to look like that under bright lights of a convention display.

This reminds me... I need to install custom lights for this line.

And the swimming Alien shows they're really thinking very bravely here. This line is going to take Sideshow's diorama output to a whole another level.

BDboystoys
08-01-2007, 02:33 AM
I didnt recall it ever being that clear. Even so, the statue is never going to be displayed in a very dark and misty room, the filming/lighting is apart of the Aliens makeup. So when viewed under regular lights it just looks off.
I dont mean to take a crack at the piece, its just that one thing that bugs me. I love it as a whole.

An understandable stance without question, but if you listen to a lot of the Sideshow interviews and read various news bits and articles from them, they have a strong passion for striving to replicate the source material. I know some will argue that they have their hits and misses, but regardless of that, they've been fairly open about trying to reproduce the source material in their works, and by that, the props, not the on screen effects. So while this piece doesn't fully capture the film quality, it does capture how it would appear on set. On top of that, I'm sure there are a number of collectors who like to see the underlying details of the dome, since what was seen in ALIENS was modified from the original Giger design.

figuremasterles
08-03-2007, 07:19 AM
Yeah, don't get me started in analysis of the Giger designs again! :lol
But yeah, the dome had all that underneath, and yes, it was fairly clear in the movie, maybe a tad obscured, but there. I prefer it being a no eyes thing myself. More like how the ALIENS dome front area looks, and continued on.
But yeah, that skull feature looms large in the ALIEN design.
If I get this piece, I will obscure that area ever so slightly. More than they look to have done.

Nice diorama though. And that is a super AR one Dassy! Love that!

BDboystoys
08-03-2007, 08:32 AM
All I mean was that I wish they presented the dome a little more like in this 1:4 replica:

http://www.sideshowtoy.com/mas_assets/jpg/2908_image02.jpg

http://www.sideshowtoy.com/mas_assets/jpg/2908_image03.jpg

As you see, the skull structure is still present underneath but the dome has a darker looking shell. Its just the total clearness that bothered me.
Oh I probably just sound nitpicky now, so I'll stop:monkey5

Seretur
08-03-2007, 10:25 AM
Who knows how clear it will be in the end, right? Once the production pieces come along. If it's the way it looked in real life, fine. If it's the way it looked in the film and in the $1000 collectible you mention, fine again.

It's still only $150. :D

12-15-2007, 03:23 PM
Got my diorama and put it together today!!!It's fantastic!I'm finally glad Sideshow has made a product line at a decent price that I'm going to collect. Considering all the other stuff I collect (A lot of Hot Toys stuff and Medicom), I can't really afford to get $300+ Aliens,Predator,etc. collectibles so the $150 is a nice price point.

The piece is packed nicely, complete with styrofoam around the Alien itself, inbetween its knee, the elbows, the head,etc. I'm actually quite surprised the tail didn't break off during shipping. Mine is number #134 out of 1,500...nice low edition number too! The height of the piece is about 14'' I believe...as tall as the Hot Toys AvP Predators. It is VERY easy to assemble as the top piece (the whole wall with creature) just slides right down onto the black base with the "ALIEN" logo on it. Just watch out if you try to move it though! As the base will slide right off! It's mostly there to just "hold" the piece. However, the back of the top piece has some fabric on the back of it which I'm sure some clever collector with the time and energy could figure out a way to make the top piece hang off the wall with the proper tools.

Now I'll admit that though this is the original Giger ALIEN, my favorite is the ALIENS design with the ridge forehead. However, what really stands out about this piece is the dynamic design and pose of it. The ALIEN coming out from the wall and pushing the chains aside is a very cool moment to capture for this statue. It almost captures that "less is more" feel that Ridley Scott gave us for the movie itself...not revealing the full creature until the end of the movie. And with the right lighting conditions, all that will stand out is the domed head and probably some glints of light off of its arms,legs and nails. The chains also are a great touch as you can put them around the creature's hands and fingers in any way you like. This is perhaps one of the most spectacular renditions of the original ALIEN creature in statue form and in one of the most shocking and surprising moments that fans will certainly remember from the movie.

However, no item really isn't without flaws and this one doesn't really have many. If anything, the two minor flaws are that the silver paint along the feet and hands seems to be sloppily applied, but it can be overlooked from a distance. Also, the chains are painted with red/brown to give it a "rusty" look...while this is great, the paint has already begun to come off on some chain links because of them rubbing together and you can see the shiny metal beneath. Some may like it though...I suppose it depends on personal preference.

Overall a stellar piece and a must-have in the hands of any Alien fan!!!!

Bardoon -- thanks for the review!

You've only made me even more expectant about the piece. And as far as the two issues you mention are concerned -- well, hopefully mine will have better paint apps ( :D ), and the chains looking like metal in places will be easy to handle. As long as they don't look like cheap white plastic, I'll be fine with it!

No problem! :rock

Well hopefully the paint-apps on yours are better! But it's really NOT bad at all,it just that some of the paint from the nails went over to the fingers...you don't notice it unless you look closely.

Got mine today, it's amazing, absolutely well done and really captures the feeling of the film, very worn out colors and such. I'll try to snap off some pictures before I go home tonight as this beauty will be decorating my desk, if not tomorrow on my break I'll take some. Can't wait for the ALIENS piece next month.

For those with HT Aliens, I'd say scale wise, the Alien is about 10-15% smaller than the HT's.

Killer pics guys! You all just convinced me to pull the trigger on one on ebay. I told myself that I wasn't going to do it... I was all fine and dandy with my HT collection...

Then you guys post your pics, and I end up collecting another line I really can't afford. lol!

Glad to see you're making converts already. :)

Thanks, I'm actually surprised this piece takes converting, I was really impressed with it from day 1 when it went up for order and all. While it does represent the film well, I prefer the ALIENS one because you'll be able to see all of the creature, so I'm looking forward to it.

I love your sig dude, plain and effective.

No effects, I shot it bouncing my flash off of my desk at work and there's a fairly red tone to the wood of the desk so it cast an orange glow onto the dio; it's a pure photograph, no manipulation at all.

Jamal
12-21-2007, 03:05 PM
That looks sweet ass man

Seretur
12-21-2007, 03:06 PM
Yes, I agree -- this piece needs no converting!

I've loved it from the day it was announced. High-end Alien sculpture, at an affordable price -- what's not to love?

But you're just making it harder to resist for the casual fans, MaulFan. Good job. :)

Jamal
12-21-2007, 03:09 PM

MaulFan

But you're just making it harder to resist for the casual fans, MaulFan. Good job. :)

Thanks, I seem to be doing that a lot lately, maybe I should get a comission haha. I can't wait for them to preview the next piece, I'm digging all these, they can space out releases but previews would be good to keep rolling with. My guess is Resurrection is next, unless the branch of to cash in on AVP:R or start up the Predator pieces before finishing the ALIEN film series.

Jamal
12-21-2007, 03:13 PM
Ill be rejecting any AVP or AR dioramas, im focusing on the original creatures and quite frankly the Preds/Aliens after P2 and after A3 sucked ass. Ill be ALL OVER the Predator Dioramas

"Converting" is when someone says he's not going to buy something and then after seeing all the pics and good reviews decides that it actually is worth getting.

Jamal

Got my Alien Diorama the other day, and I love it! Looks like this new line has me hooked already.

I wasn't planning on setting it up yet, but when I opened the box to inspect for damage and saw the extremely tight and protective packaging I changed my mind. I don't want to try to put all that plastic and styrofoam back on him just yet, so I squeezed him onto the shelf. Here's a couple pics, please excuse the quality. A few of the extra protective packaging as well - lol!

And all I can say is -- after six months of anticipation -- is that this is A MASTERPIECE.

I've waited for a long time to procure my first Alien collectible, but this one has met all of my expectations, and exceeded them.

Good luck guys. The Aliens diorama is harder to come by because Sideshow made 1/3 less of them. Only 1000 compared to the original Alien 1500. Strange considering many collectors like the second film more, myself not included. I love it, but Alien is my alltime favorite film.

Anyway, good luck on your search. I have all four of the Alien dios, and they look great displayed together. I only hope Sideshow will release a Aliens Queen Diorama one day (soon!).
