Photos and details have been released by Good Smile Company for an upcoming Aliens – MODEROID Power Loader with Ellen Ripley Plastic Model Kit. This ready to assemble kit creates a 1/12 scale articulated Power Loader with an articulated removable Ripley figure. Also included are soft cables for the wiring, and decals that can be applied to the Power Loader. The Power Loader stands almost 9.5″ tall when assembled. More details from Good Smile Company:
From “Aliens” comes a 1/12 scale plastic model of the machine used in the battle against the Alien Queen, the Power Loader! The hydraulic cylinders extend and retract in conjunction with the models arm and leg parts.
Using an internal gear system, the claws can also be opened and closed. The wiring cables have been recreated with soft tube material.
A plastic model kit of Ellen Ripley herself is included so you can display her in the Power Loader! Ripley is also articulated, making it easy to display her moving in tandem with the power loader. Water-slide decals to recreate the markings of the machine are also included.
Pre-orders are now live in Japan. No word on a US release just yet. The model kit is priced at 9,500 Yen (about $83 USD). Look for it to be released in July. You can see the new photos after the jump.
