New ALIEN Action Figure Features The Original Translucent Xenomorph Concept Design

Mezco Toyz has revealed a new action figure for the classic Ridley Scott sci-fi horror film Alien. This figure is based on the original design that H.R. Giger created for the Xenomorph. One of the main things that makes this design different is that the Xenomorph is translucent.

The design wasn’t used in the film due to insurmountable technical challenges that it presented. One of the main things being that the latex costume kept tearing. The production team eventually created the black latex version of the Xenomorph.

The One:12 Collective Alien “Concept Edition” features a seamless body designed with an internal skeleton armature that creates the feel of the creature’s suit from the film’s developmental stages. The aggressive eponymous creature has a hinged jaw with interchangeable inner mouths, as well as an interchangeable chest plate pierced by the ASSO-400 Harpoon Grappling Gun, as seen in the final scene of the movie.

All of Alien’s accessories have taken on a semiopaque, milky look to compliment the originally designed Alien suit and honor the conceptualization of what became one of the most iconic movie monsters ever created.

I like the design and it would have been interesting to see it brought to life in the original film if they could have pulled it off.

This is a limited edition figure that will never to be produced again by Mezco. You can pre-order it here for $100.
