You’re looking at a 1:1 replica of the massive M56 Smart Gun carried by Vasquez and Drake in Aliens. It’s officially licensed, detailed and 48″ long. It also comes with a themed tabletop display stand.
Sure it’s a “little” expensive, but can you really put a price on being a badass and saving the world from xenomorphs? [click to continue…]
James Cameron’s Aliens features plenty of cool gadgets and vehicles, but one of the most recognizable has to be Ripley’s power loader. LEGO artist Daniel Schlumpp has recreated the robotic suit and details are spot on (right down to Ripley’s perm). Plus, he’s created an easy-to-follow guide if you would like to make one yourself.

Artist Guillem H. Pongiluppi has envisioned what a Star Wars/Aliens mashup might look like and it is too awesome for this world. The first series was released last year, but he’s just updated it with a fresh round of illustrations. Drink it in because this is as close as we’ll ever get to this crossover. [click to continue…]
Great, another mouth to feed. Goddammit, I told you to clean your room.
Transform any room into a deadly Alien breeding ground with this Life-Size Xenomorph Egg – complete with its own eerie lighting and life-size facehugger! As seen in the 1986 horror classic Aliens, this full-sized replica stands almost 36-inches tall, and articulated flaps with a wire armature allow you to actually open the top folds of the egg. The included full-size facehugger has a bendable tail, so you can pose it anywhere… waiting to drop on unsuspecting prey from overhead, or simply lurking inside the egg! The Life-Size Xenomorph Egg is made of detailed, hand-painted foam, and stands on its own. A switch activates the LED lights inside the base to create a menacing, otherworldly glow effect. Requires 3x “AAA” batteries, not included.

District 9 director Neill Blomkamp recently posted a bunch of frakkin’ incredible Aliens concept art to his Instagram, which left a lot of people wondering if Blomkamp was working on an Aliens project or if this is his way of throwing his hat in the ring with a flourish.
Either way, the images and tweets give a tantilizing view of what might be if everything had fallen into place.
His concepts include the return of Hicks, Ripley in the Space Jockey’s captain’s gear, terrifying new facehuggers and more.

Your bathroom is about to become a place worthy of an episode of The X-Files thanks to this design by Duncan Shotton. The UFO soap pump/dispenser displays an alien abduction in progress. The aliens are stealing either a human or a cow, but your hands are probably safe from extraterrestrial experiments. We’re not so sure about other parts of your body though. You’ll have to scrub pretty hard to forget about all the probing.
