Aliens (1986): Xenomorph

The sequel to Alien was released in 1986. Aliens was directed by James Cameron (he also directed Terminator) and starred Sigourney Weaver, Michael Biehn, Lance Henriksen, Carrie Henn, Bill Paxton and Paul Reiser. This time, it was Colonial Marines out to kick Alien butt but they got their asses chewed instead.

Medicom released this xenomorph in 1996. It was the only available poseable alien figure back then and this was the ribbed head version from the sequel as opposed to the smooth transparent head version of the first movie. This was part of the AVP concept as Medicom also produced the Predator at the same time. Mind you, this was back in 1996 and the AVP movie didn't come out until 2004. Since then, Hot Toys have produced some tremendously well-sculpted 1/6 xenomorphs.
