Good Smile Company has unveiled an upcoming model kit that is inspired by James Cameron’s classic sci-fi action film Aliens. It features Ellen Ripley and her super awesome power loader. The ready to assemble kit is called Aliens – MODEROID Power Loader with Ellen Ripley Plastic Model Kit and it makes a 1/12 scale articulated Power Loader with an articulated Ripley figure which you can take out of the power loader. Also included are soft cables for the wiring, and decals that can be applied to the Power Loader. The Power Loader stands almost 9.5″ tall when assembled.
From “Aliens” comes a 1/12 scale plastic model of the machine used in the battle against the Alien Queen, the Power Loader! The hydraulic cylinders extend and retract in conjunction with the models arm and leg parts.
Using an internal gear system, the claws can also be opened and closed. The wiring cables have been recreated with soft tube material.
A plastic model kit of Ellen Ripley herself is included so you can display her in the Power Loader! Ripley is also articulated, making it easy to display her moving in tandem with the power loader. Water-slide decals to recreate the markings of the machine are also included.
You can pre-order it if you are in Japan, but there’s no word on a US release just yet. You can pre-order at BigBadToyStore.
