Who doesn’t love a good blind bag? My kid does. She doesn’t care what franchise it’s for as long as there’s an element of surprise. Where did I go wrong as a parent?
Maybe it wasn’t my fault. The local Winn-Dixie indoctrinated me because of all those quarter vending machines. Each month, a new trinket is encased in a small plastic bubble that cost fifty cents a pop. You just can’t resist.
Another thing the ’80s taught me was that all horror franchises could be made kid-friendly. I had Freddy Krueger footy PJs, for God’s sake! Eventually, the ‘ALIEN’ franchise got that treatment, too. And it still continues to this day.
While checking out Figures.com, I saw that Monogram, known for a variety of blind bag lines, has announced a new collection based on ‘ALIEN,’ ‘ALIENS,’ ‘Predator,’ and ‘AVP.’ Yes, we even get poor dead Kane with a newborn xenomorph bursting out of his chest. Ah. I can’t wait for my kid to find that gem!
We’ve collected quite a few of Monograph’s previous releases. While they do make cool-looking keychain accessories, they do collect dirt and smudges really easily. Do yourself a favor and build a key rack to hang all these little dudes on.
The following figures are found in this release:
- Attacking Xenomorph
- Kane with Chestburster
- Egg with Facehugger
- Ellen Ripley
- (2) Mystery Varients
The blind bags are available at Hot Topic, but if you’re still wary of traveling to the mall, you can order the bags right from their website.
Monogram’s YouTube channel posted a video showing off all the pint-sized characters. Check it out below:
Which figures are you going to hunt for? Personally, I just want a bunch of Tom Skerritts. A whole mess of ’em. I want my keychain to be a basketball-sized mass of Tom Skerritt. Let us know in the comments.
