In 1986, the story telling prowess of James Cameron brought us the action packed sci-fi Blockbuster Aliens. This sequel to the original Alien movie, released in 1979, took the sci-fi creature feature genre by storm.
Cameron’s use of special effects (rear projection, miniature usage, beam and camera splitters among others) brought the film industry to a higher level of standards when it came to visual and sound effects. Decades later, amid a plethora of visually stunning sci-fi releases, using CGI and other state of the art VFX, Aliens still ranks with an impressive 8.2 stars on IMDB.
So maybe you are a die-hard fan of the movie, or an avid action figure collector; maybe you are just looking for the perfect gift for that special someone, or the perfect addition to your office; well, look no further than this Aliens Xenomorph Queen Deluxe Action Figure.
In April 2018, just in time for Mother’s Day, we are gifted with the release of the ever-elusive Aliens Xenomorph Queen Ultra Deluxe Action Figure.
