Aliens Colonial Marines Collector's Edition Power Loader Statue















This is a one-time opportunity as the figure normally is an addition to a limited edition of the Playstation PS3 videogame. The Collector's Edition was also available to Xbox360. Inside the special Xeno Hive collector's edition box users will find a 18 cm tall statue is made of resin and comes packed in a classic window-box. An exclusive statue of the iconic 'Power Loader'by loved by fans when this exoskeleton forklift that beat the hell out of Xenomorph

Aliens: Colonial Marines is a squad-based shooter, set in the science fiction universe inspired by James Cameron's 1986 film. In the spirit of the 20th Century Fox movie series, the game plays out through the claustrophobic corridors of futuristic, labyrinthine, extra-terrestrial industrial constructs. Tense, creepy pacing is punctuated with vicious ambushes and explosive firefights. The game aims to relive the movie. 

To succeed in their deadly mission, each marine must know his role, and the squad must work together to survive. The game's story was authored by Bradley Thompson and David Weddle, partners who have previously written for the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Battlestar Galactica sci-fi TV series. Aliens: Colonial Marines was developed by Brothers in Arms creator, Gearbox Software. 

I actually care less about the game but I totally head over heels for this collector's edition 'Power Loader' statue. I'm lucky that I got this from a private collector who is just selling the statue and keeping his game and the other memorabilia which is ideal for both parties. The statue is really cool, well detailed and appeared awesome in pics taken with the hangar background which came with the box set. The base of the statue bears the title of the game 'Aliens Colonial Marines' and like diorama of steel flooring. 

The Power Loader was piloted by a random Colonial Marine with Xenomorph climbing up the Power Load trying to attack him. The Xenomorph looks great and better looking that the marine IMHO. The Power Loader was nicely painted with the right chome at area it needed to be and cool expression of battle damaged, battle tested tarnishing of soots and greases. Not to mention the yellow blinker light on top of the Power Loader, those dangling power cables behind Power Loader and the tail of Xenomorph are some of the other features that caught my attention. What a tribute to the concept of Aliens!

Dragon Ball Z Ichiban Kuji Saiyan Space Pod Scotch Tape Holder / Dispenser

Authentic sticker on prize!








Other Ichiban Kuji prizes in this series included kid Vegeta 4.5”(12cm), 16cm tall Bardock with diorama, a 21cm tall Baby Goku in Saiyan space pod, several Saiyan Scouter wall mount items, Dragon Ball pillows, and even some Saiyan tails!

Released in 2009 from Banpresto Ichiban Kuji division, Prize F, comes the sensational Saiyan Space pod scotch tape holder. The pod is kind of small measuring only 2.5"(6cm), assembled by 3 simple parts. Even though it is not a high end prize, the whole idea is pretty interesting. The tape has Dragon Ball theme design like the face of Vegeta as shown and by looking the clear window of the pod, it as though Vegeta is inside it. There are actually many different tape designs to choose from random pack. It's sure novelty collectible that one would not bear to use this stationery.

Marvel 1/10 Scale Iron Man ARTFX Figure
















From Kotobukiya, exploring the Marvel Comics Universal is the next great property to get Kotobukiya's ARTFX+ PVC statue treatment, and so of course the first series is none other than the Avengers, specifically the characters as they appear in Marvel Now! In 2012 the comic book company relaunched several titles, shifting some characters into different books and updating some for a modern audience. More than anything, it provided a perfect jumping on point for new readers. 

The characters are brought to life as never before based on concept artwork by superstar artist Adi Granov. The latest Avenger to join the team is IRON MAN, who completes the lineup of Earth's defenders with his previously released allies Hulk, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye, and Thor! Created in 1963 by a group of comic book luminaries (including Stan Lee and Jack Kirby), Tony Stark was a rich playboy whose capture during the Cold War led him to create a technologically advanced powered armor suit bristling with weapons and science-fiction gadgets. 

Best known for fighting enemies such as Mandarin and Crimson Dynamo, Stark would over the years combat his own personal demons as well, making him a very nuanced and interesting character popular the world over. While he would continue to improve and upgrade his armors, the brilliant industrialist/hero would also help found the premiere Marvel superhero group the Avengers and fight with them all the way into the current Marvel Now! Universe. 

With a fresh start Tony appeared there with a brand new suit of Iron Man armor featuring a sleek design (similar to Mark 43) and a bold black and gold color scheme! The Iron Avenger stands at the ready, turned to his side as he raises his right hand to aim a repulsor at the enemy. Iron Man's armor is intricately detailed with layers, panels, vents, and other technological components like secondary repulsors, and the metallic paint really makes it shine. 

Sculpted by the same master artist who did the rest of this Avengers series, Junnosuke Abe (RESTORE), Iron Man stands just under 8 ½ inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) on his included magnetic feet. Add Iron Man to your collection and complete the full lineup of ARTFX+ Marvel Now Avengers!
