Adorable Alien vinyl has translucent skull hood

This vinyl Alien toy by Medicon Toys has to be the most adorable Xenomorph I've ever seen. You know, if you'd asked me if H.R. Giger's perverse xenosexual alien designs could be transformed into cute bobbleheads and shrunk down to eight inches high while maintaining their phallic, skeletal monstrosity, I'd have told you it couldn't be done. But, wow, they've really done a great job with these vinyls. Look! The alien's head even has a translucent glans revealing the human skull underneath, just like in Giger's original design. Sheer class. $70 will get you one for the top of your monitor when they ship in Q3, 2008.

    screw a new radiator

    although it says Q3 so I’ve got time

  2. Medicom is the best. I dropped a small fortune on their Real Action Hero 12″ line a few years ago so coveting more of their stuff makes my wallet cry.

  3. its cute until you wake up with the morning and its trying to eat your yes from the sockets

  4. IIRC the 14″ Alien figure that came out back in the day had a similar translucent head cover. The head details were done with glow in the dark paint and the inner jaw/mouth extended out by means of a lever in the back of the skull.

    Also worth mentioning that:
    1 hard plastic beats soft vinyl every time
    2 14″ is of course better than 8″

  5. Cute, but I’d love one in scale with my Robot Heroes…

    Starscream plus Alien equals ADOWABWE!

  6. It’s like the toddler version, between the full grown alien and chestburster, that they don’t show in the movies. I guess it’s for the best, people might have been pissed if Ripley blew this little guy out the airlock. It’s just precious!
