Ellen Ripley is back! No, it’s not some lousy reboot, but a premium statue from Blitzway featuring the classic sci-fi hero as she appeared during the climax of the legendary ALIENS film from 1986.
At the Big Bad Toy Store, we spotted this recreation of Ripley’s heroic quest to save Newt as the atmospheric processor started to go nuclear. Decked out with only flairs, a flamethrower, and a pulse rifle, the most badass mother in the universe, is about to clash with the grotesque xenomorph queen.
The statue is priced at $1,264.99 and will ship around September 2023.
The statue is composed of several different mediums, including polystone and fabric. Ripley’s clothing is all done with stitchwork, and from the up-close shots, it looks impressive. The Reeboks are probably polystone, but they’re painted and textured so well that it’s hard to tell for sure.
The LE statue comes with a bonus in the form of an Ovomorph (egg) with a Facehugger crawling out of it. Sadly, there’s no Newt statue to accompany this whole scene.
Following the Locator, Ripley navigates the narrow gangways of the Atmosphere Processing Plant, and here, Prime 1 Studio’s engineering really shines! Not only is Ripley’s base reminiscent of the grimy, industrial maze of pipes and grates, but if you look down at the platform, the LED Illuminated floor recreates the seemingly endless levels Ripley has to traverse until she reaches the Xenomorph Queen’s Hive!
Here’s what all comes in the box:
- Ellen Ripley statue
- M41A Pulse Rifle
- M240 Flamethrower
- Ammunition Cross Bag
- Marking Flare Pouch
- M-94 Marking Flares
- Bonus Ovomorph and Facehugger
The only thing I do not like about this statue is Ripley’s face. The structure is correct, but the eyes look like they’re too small. Maybe Blitzway/Prime 1 Studio couldn’t get Sigourney Weaver’s likeness rights? Regardless, all the other details make up for it. What do you think?
