S.H. MonsterArts Alien Warrior

Bandai has started producing FiguArts and MonsterArts figures beyond those with a Japanese twist, grabbing licenses such as DC’s Injustice, Super Mario Brothers, music acts like Daft Punk, and what we have here – Aliens Vs. Predator. Their Alien Warrior is one more Xenomorph figure from multiple companies putting out characters from the Alien franchise and we wanted to see what the Bandai treatment would do for it.

The figure features a large amount of articulation, especially in the tail which is impressive. The paint applications are top notch, using multiple levels of blacks and greys to present a 3d look and really bring out the mold details. Additional hands and a stand, commonplace with most S.H. offerings are present and welcome. The Alien Egg and Chestburster accessories are bonus and a nice capper to an overall solid figure. Standing 5/6 inches tall, he will work on your shelves if you feel like mixing him up with some more traditional super hero figures.

Check out over 40 shots of the Alien Warrior in action after the break, courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!

Looks like you activate the light up effect by tilting the figure forward at its hips. The figure is produced by Bandai. It’s hard to gauge exactly how big this figure is from the images.

Just when you thought the Armor Plus line has faded away, comes another new release, a Samurai Troopers Yoroiden/Ronin Warriors one at that!

Instead of the swords that Ryo’s Inferno armor had, this one has a giant boomerang.

Series 2 Kits
