This looks really good, she looks absolutely tiny next to the 1/3 Big chap, although that is a huge statue....

Couple things. It's a rainy British day with little light, I am also using a six year old nokia for the pics.

Moving soon, don't want to risk damage, kept as much in the box as possible, only took the base, body and one arm out.

The pictures just do not capture what I see in person, this paint app is excellent, clean lines, don't see anything out of place, very happy! Looks much better in person.

No issues with the fabric.

Some nice touches i picked up on.
The arm has a plastic cover over the magnet to reduce chips, always worrying when the polystone snaps together.
There is metal housing for the foot peg that sits in the base.

There are some finicky things I have to do like wrapping the Flamethrower and Pulse Rifle together. My grenade sling is abit loose, needs tightening.

Cost shipping to uk
statue and postage combined: ?1169.59
Duty: ?194.95


Ripley rarely gets a high quality statue, I am happy to have this one.

Some more pics, could not upload anymore https://imgur.com/a/6hTsylv

Already posted photos on Facebook and everyone has seen the piece by now but damn, what a wonderful statue.

I purchased it October 11 Standard Shipping and it was delivered to me yesterday October 23 in California.

I was very impressed by the delivery speed.

Got mine today and it is indeed a beautiful statue Though very pricey, unless you are a big alien fan I would pass. One thing I would say doesn't translate well into photos is the skin tones, her face looks like one flat color (aside from marks) from what I've seen but in real life it actually looks more skin like. Also unsure if anyone mentioned but the railing is metal I believe.
