Just yesterday Mezco One:12 revealed the Xenomorph from Alien. Many companies have made figures of the Xenomorph before but I don’t think we have seen one with a seamless body before. I know Mezco has done it with a few of their figures in the past and it is the right step to take with the iconic Xenomorph.
Like all Mezco One:12 figures the Xenomorph is very well detailed and comes packed with plenty of accessories. With them revealing the Jungle Hunter Predator last year you could have imagined a Xenomorph not being that far behind. The seamless body looks great and I wonder how the body will hold up over time and on the first impression, it looks very impressive. And all the elements that you would see in the Xenomorph are all here. The Alien comes with plenty of accessories such as pairs of interchangeable hands and inner jaws. Having two eggs included as well as two different facehuggers in different states(one living and one dead) and a Chest Burster.
It’s great that this figure isn’t an exclusive this is a retail release which is great and I do wonder if they have plans to release the human characters from Alien down the line. Also, it should be noted that the figure will ship early next year. Here’s the press release Mezco:
One:12 Collective Alien
“In space, no one can hear you scream.”
The perfect organism, Alien joins the One:12 Collective!
The One:12 Collective Alien features an all-new seamless body designed with an internal skeleton armature that is durable yet highly posable. The hostile xenomorph is equipped with a hinged pharyngeal jaw and interchangeable inner mouths, as well as an interchangeable chest plate pierced by the ASSO-400 Harpoon Grappling Gun, as seen in the final scene of the movie.
Alien is fully loaded with film-accurate accessories including a coiled Facehugger that can fit over the heads of most other One:12 Collective figures, an open Facehugger, a Chestburster, and an open and closed Ovomorph egg.
The crew aboard the Nostromo are awakened from their cryo-sleep to investigate a distress call from an alien vessel. After the crew encounters a nest of eggs inside the alien ship, terror begins as they realize they are not alone.
