OK, so with the recent NECA announcement, and various other goodies appearing at toy fairs, I thought it would be interesting to see what Alien related stuff people collect.

Personally, I'm not a dedicated collector of everything, but have a few favourites (including making various scenes in Lego....yes, I know....and no, my wife doesn't talk about that fondly at dinner parties!).

So, let's hear what you've got (the more interesting the better). Images would be great.

I have the NECA 18" Big Chap Alien (somewhere lol.) It's the predecessor to the new and improved 22" version) and believe me you get so much value in terms of quality from of a relatively modest price when buying their 18" figures.

For instance, the level of detail on their massive xeno is on par with Hot Toys figures yet merely at a quarter of the cost in comparison, and you get a considerably larger and sturdier figure. I still prefer HT figures overall but that's for entirely different reasons (actor face authenticity, real cloth, super quality) 

But again I highly recommend NECA's large 1/4 scale figures in general.

NECA are probably the undisputed kings of reasonably priced quality figures imo.

I have the NECA Arkham Knight Batman 1/4 scale figure in an acrylic display case, which looks fantastic.

I also have 3 japanese Sci-fi revoltech figures; the original '79 Alien, the Alien Warrior and the Alien Queen. These are really nice display figures as they come with cool bases and accessories such as an open egg with a facehugger attacking (Alien figure) or a closed egg with a acid damaged base (Alien Warrior) once I get back from the states I'll post some pictures on these and on my main collection of HT figures.

Long ago I used to have more Alien figures from NECA but I didn't have sufficient space for them and they probably ended up in the attic (haaaa see what I did there ;) 

Anyway with NECA planning new AC releases I'm really excited to start collecting again.

The Kenner figures are really cool classics, I also used to have that Micro Machines original big white bus that could be transformed into a small city. Micro Machines are awesome, loved their tiny Star Wars ships.

Speaking of miniatures, does anyone remember Mighty Max figures? Bigger figures such ss Street Sharks? Biker Mice from Mars? I had these as a kid....ah those were the days lol

*gets uncontrollably nostalgic*

If i had more $$$$ ££££ and Space then i would surely collect some, sadly only T-Shirts and few Books for the Alien or Predator Franchise..

But if had cash i would surely collect the Hot Toys ones ;)

I have a Hot Wheels set of 4 Star Trek ships from each series and a bird of prey plus that weird ship from the reboot movie- all unopened as a gift- they are very detailed. I also have the bigger enterprise from the 90s that lights up and makes noises. I should get some shelves so they can all be displayed.

Off theme, but also have these - the souvenir magazine on the right I picked up for $5, having been stored away for 30 years, and is in near new condition (love garage sales!)

One of my Lego creations. Couldn't make the full dropship, as it's huge and didn't have the right parts.

I based my dropship on this version here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/13976286426/in/dateposted/ - the other Aliens builds this guy does are awesome - well worth a browse.

I built this one too, but a recent earthquake toppled it! Will have to rebuild at some point. The book (with parts list and full instructions) is awesome in itself , and the finished model is huge. I'm collating parts for their chestburster model (flickr site here - https://www.flickr.com/photos/arvobrothers/)
