I like it except for Jones and Ripley's hands. The sculpt for Jones is terrible. The hands and joints look substandard for Hot Toys. Very generic.

@ sneaky prawn I feel the same way. Defintely not as good as what we saw a couple years ago at convention. This doesn't look "Hot Toy" standard.

The Prototype had rooted hair and a MUCH better face sculpt, paint app and Sterner expression. I'm disappointed, i wanted THAT version.

Was looking forward to this figure when I first saw it in SCTG 2014 when the prototype figure was with rooted hair. This figure is with sculpted hair and Ripley looks off and only resemble better at certain angle. Giving this one a skip unless there is a release 2.0 which is unlikely.
