Sideshow Collectibles have teamed up with Legacy Effects to bring an Alien King to life, in the form of a remarkable collectible statue! Conceptualized to rival that of the Alien Queen, the Alien King features accentuated spinal details, a ferocious looking demeanor and an arsenal of deadly claws and teeth. The Xenomorph King also features an elongated head crest, like the Queen, but is somewhat wider in design compared to the more slender, feminine styling of the Alien Queen. Size wise, the Alien King looks about on par with its Queen counterpart, with additional Xenomorphs added to the statue to help give perspective to its sheer size.
This being a Sideshow collectible is bound to cost fans a pretty penny to own, although no price point has yet been set. Sideshow have released an exciting introduction video (below) where they explain the process by which they designed the Xenomorph King as well as show snap shots of the creature's concept art and finished product. Check it out:
