NECA TOYS AVP Grid and Warrior Alien Review

Grid and Warrior Aliens

When you think about an Alien fighting a Predator most people will think that the Predator wins hands down.  In a true one on one battle this could be the case, but the Aliens in AVP show nothing is certain.  In the movie, one of the last things you start to see are the Aliens attacking humans and Predators.  At this point in the movie it looks as if the Xenos are truly the best.  The GRID Alien picks apart two Predators before finally being taken out by the Scar Predator.  We will cut the Predators some slack as this was their chance to prove themselves by defeating a Xenomorph.  Let's take a closer look at NECA's GRID and Warrior Aliens from the movie Alien vs Predator.

NECA TOYS ALIEN Concept Figure Review

Translucent Prototype Xenomorph Suit

Although it never made it to the movie, the first Xenomorph (Big Chap) from the original ALIEN movie was supposed to be translucent so that you could see its inner workings. However, due to several unsuccessful attempts to make a translucent Xeno suit the color of it was changed to the dark colored version that we all know and love. The backstory about this is fascinating. If you have the time and the desire to learn more and see pictures of the original prototype suit then head over to the Strange Shapes blog. There are two articles in particular on this topic which you can find here and here. If you are a fan of the ALIEN franchise then you will want to give them a look.
