Sideshow Collectibles has shared a new Alien preview for Alien Day. They have shared the first preview image of their upcoming King Alien Maquette. The King Alien was a classic Kenner toy released in the early 1990’s. A similar Xenomorph made an appearance in Aliens: Rogue, a graphic novel/story arc by Dark Horse Comics.
In the comic, which was later adapted to a full novel, the Rogue Xenomorph was created by a scientist named Professor Kleist to battle the Alien Queen. It escapes from the facility and causes massive destruction, but is ultimately killed by the Alien Queen. In the comic, the Rogue was referred to as a King. Sideshow hasn’t shared a pre-order date at this time. We’ll update as more info is released.
Sideshow sent out an Alien Day Email. You can follow their news today Here. In the email was a second Alien King teaser. They also have a video detailing the Alien King’s creation! We’ve added them to the post.
