Thanks so much to all of you !
Here some hand references...
The hands in self are one of the more study things for this figure, cause that we decide to move on this taken the Original Character Concept, the hands was originally designed with 6 fingers in each hand, 2 thumbs in opposite sides of the hands, it was to create a Very Strong handgrip Idea, but when the concept become to a Physical rubber suit It was changed according the reality and practicality of the moment when the movie was done

First off, Fantastic sculpting! I love all the details and glad to see you got the dome shape correct!
I don't think most people have a complaint that the hands have separate fingers. Many of us already know that the hands were made this way in the beginning. The main complaint is that the fingers are articulated in a way that makes the hands look almost human. One could say it's Nosferatu-esque. The pose is good and creepy but, the fingers bent like Nosferatu fingers just aren't like the Big Chap. His fingers were always straight or moved like they only had 1 knuckle close to the palm, on each finger. Not like humans or Nosferatu, who have 2 knuckles on each finger.
HOpe that makes sense. lol

Couldn't one argue that since the Alien is a human/alien hybrid that it would have some human characteristics. I suspect the reason why we did not see more hand movements in the movie was because the animechanics where not as developed as there are today or even 5-6 years after the movie.-

Also we only say a small area of the Alien at a time. We never saw a full figure other than photographs in the number of publications printed since the original movie.-

With regards to the pose I see this as the scene where Ripley is looking for the Cat and the Alien came around the corner of the bulk head.-

It will pose very well with the Aliens Warrior as can be seen with the comparison shot.-
