I believe Hot Toys founder Howard Chan has an affinity to films from the past. What I mean is that he is still very sentimental, hanging on to some of the older but more popular 20th century films like Terminator, RoboCop, Back to the Future, Matrix and the Alien franchise, or why he should get that www.mjfriendship.de/de/index.php?op…27&Itemid=47 The license to produce figures from an older era, in which he was able to easily bring out new characters based on current and popular films.
When Hot Toys were released in 2000 with the production and release of their The First Seven Figures, Kyle Reese and a Damaged Terminator from the movie Terminator 1984, followed by three United States Colonial Marine Corps characters (Hicks, Apone and Vasquez) of 1986 Aliens AND John Rambo and Colonel Trautman of 1985 First Blood II – You can see the full list of MMS001 through MMS140 in my blog post at HERE .
And after more than 15 years, Hot Toys announced in May 2016 that they would launch an Ellen Ripley character The 1979 Alien movie, which arrived more than a year later in November 2017 (as part of my collection , HERE ). This is my second part action figure review of Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS366 ALIEN 1/6 Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley's 12 inch collectible figure. Ripley comes with its own flamethrower, a frightened version of Jonesy the Cat, which can be carried in a custom cat carrier, tracking device, and alien diorama with the Ripley name tag.
I already have pictures of Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece series MMS366 ALIEN 1/6 Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley's 12-inch collectible figure armed with a custom flamethrower with Jonesy the Cat in my earlier post HERE so I posted in this toy blog post Ripley, who holds in one hand the cat transport box (with Jonesy in it) and in the other the locating device. Her individual flamethrower is wrapped on her back over her shoulder.
Ripley wears a green T-shirt, a white buttoned shirt, a blue-gray jumpsuit and white-red sneakers (high-cut Converse shoes). It also comes with a specially designed wristwatch. The producers wanted the crew of the Nostromo to resemble working astronauts in a realistic environment, a concept that was grouped together as a "trucker in space". According to Ridley Scott, this concept was inspired in part by Star Wars, which deviated from the pristine future often portrayed in sci-fi films of the time.
