Im a big Alien fan and was looking for a center piece to my Alien collection.I have known about the Queen Bust for a while but wasnt sure if it was worth picking up but I'm seriously considering buying one now.Maybe someone can post some pics of theirs so that I can get a good look at her and make up my mind whether or not to buy.Thanks

Wow,that is one cool collectible!
They should have done a more "giger-esque" stand though.

Yeah that thing would look awesome with some marines & the power loader around it.I've so got to get this but the price Sideshow has on this $945.00 is a little much.Now if it were like $750.00 Id buy.

Yeah, $945 is a bit steep. I just got one off eBay for $610. I am eagerly awaiting it. This is defenitely going to be the centerpiece of my collection.

That Queen bust is an absolutely beautiful piece of artwork, it would be the center piece of any collection.


At what scale was this sculpted, is it sixthscale?

I've decided to get both,but the queen is going to be first in line.I'll get dog alien when it comes out.I'll probably have to put that dog on FLEX PAY.The queen I'll get through SS,just because they have great customer service.I'll post pics when the queen arrives.

Nice collection the Queen looks great,But your right about her size.Just looking at her compared to your Hot toys Alien,she really isn't that big.She still is worth picking up.Do you think they played down the scale a little bit?

It seems as though they played it down a little. It was smaller than I thought because I had never really seen any pictures of the bust with anything else in the frame to give it scale. That was probably done on purpose.

Don't get me wrong, it is still an amazing piece. I highly recommend it. I had been wanting one a long time and just got lucky on eBay.

You know,now that I've been looking at the pics of your Queen a little more.She looks to be more on the lines of 1/6 scale than 1/4 scale,wow kind of sucks that they did that:monkey2.Have you measured her at all?The demensions on SS say it's 22"H X 23.5L" X D23.5".I'd like to know before I purchase her.

The queen is pretty big...the head is very large and elongated :cool:
It has amazing detail all around, esp. on the back and neck area.
I agree it would've been nicer to see a 1:3 scale or something...but this thing is highly impressive!

Thanks Reinhardt!

The Alien above Ripley is one made in Japan by Tsukuda hobby in the 1996. It is a pre-painted, pre-assembled model. The arms rotate, but no other parts move.

Sideshow's measurments are pretty much accurate. It is approx. 22" high at its highest point.
