Alien: Colonial Marines is 2013 video game released by SEGA. It was released for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game experienced a long development cycle, though the outlook was positive, as a hands-off demo showcased a stellar looking game. Unfortunately, upon its release, the game suffered from numerous issues, continuity discrepancies and was universally disliked by fans and game critics. Post release updates helped to improve the game, but the damage was done by that point and, outside of a dedicated mod community on PC, the game ultimately made little impact on the Aliens fan community. The game itself was set after the events of Alien 3 and was meant to be a direct sequel to Aliens, dealing with the fallout of the battle on LV-426. The game introduced some genuinely interesting concepts for the Aliens, some of which became mutated.
Hiya Toys had gained the license for the game, and released their first figure in 2014. That figure, the Alien Soldier, was reissued and will hit online retailers with a full slate of other figures. These include the Alien Lurker, the Alien Boiler, the alien Spitter (not pictured here), Hicks, Hudson, Quintero and a Power Loader. These 3.75″ scale figures are all fully articulated, and meant to rival the best in terms of movement and accessories. Hiya Toys, by way of Toyark sponsor Big Bad Toy Store, provided us with the figures to check out. We have over 165 high resolution photos and a full review. You can see them after the jump.
