Coolprops Alien New Warrior Life Size Head

I’m fairly new to the hobby with mainly horror pieces but I love the Alien franchise. I really like this but have not read much about it on many forums or online. This would be by far my biggest purchase, price-wise. I’m on the waitlist so there’s not guarantee I’d get the opportunity to purchase it but researching just in case.


Amy feedback on it? Does it make a difference that’s it listed as a “prop replica”?

TIA

There's some video reviews of the "coolprops alien resurrection head" if you search for that.
If you like this particular design - I think they did a decent job of capturing the creature and the production samples seem to me to be the best of the other Aliens they did.
Sure there's room for it to be better with gloss etc...

I agree with Oz. It’s a pretty decent replica, but the gloss isn’t there. Still love it though.

Looks great Mr Shoosh! Another FL collector - nice. I’m down in PBC.

I love how it looks on the wall.....I may do some sort of shelf and keep it on the stand.

Of course I’m only on the waitlist so I’m not sure if it will even come available. Hopefully ��

Good luck to you. I’m sure it’ll work out. My alien dog was on a waitlist for almost a year. I’d forgotten all about it. Then one day in October, bam! An email. I couldn’t get to Sideshow’s website fast enough to hit “add to cart”.

Their Big chap was really nice. Paint could be better on all of them, but they make for great pieces if you're willing to spend the money.

Here's the original thread for this, not that it was engaged with much.

Shame they didn't replicate the webbing effect.

^ that link makes me reminisce when I first laid eyes on it and immediately preordered. I was a little disappointed to not have the transparent dome and wet look as advertised. But I quickly got over it. My prime 1 Alien dog head is one of the most beautiful works of art I’ve ever seen. And that includes my love for cars. Too bad it didn’t reach that level of detail.
