Aliens (1986): Power Loader

What a thing of beauty to behold!! One of those things that a 1/6 collector such as myself lives and die for - a Power Loader in 1/6 scale. This beauty from Hot Toys is worth every dollar paid - beautifully crafted and produced with everything working as it should. You gotta see it first hand to appreciate it! The other jaw dropping, mouth drooling item was the 1/6 ED209 from Robocop but that's for another entry.

After the movie's premiere, the Caterpillar construction equipment company reportedly received inquiries from people interested in buying the power loader that Ripley uses to fight the Alien Queen, who were unaware that it was fictional and didn't exist outside of the movie.

Here we see Ripley posing beside the power loader.

The power loader has working revolving lights and the interior panel lights up as well.

"Come and get it, you alien BITCH!!"

After watching ALIENS and seeing the USCM and Power Loader in action, these were the two things I really wanted in 1/6 so I was pleased as punch when Hot Toys released them :)

I'm really looking forward to Sideshow's "Captain Dallas" and "Executive Officer Kane" figures from the original ALIEN.

Not much longer I think. According to Hot Toys' website, they're already out in stores. Hope to pick up mine soon.

Yes. I beleive they drop in stores here (States)this month.
Love their lighted packs!

I've seen Captain Dallas (Tom Skerritt) but I think Kane got recalled because of sculpt issues because he looked nothing like John Hurt. Still waiting for the reply by my distributor
