Prime1 studio & Blitzway have a new addition to their Ultimate Premium Masterline series. Together they launched an Ellen Ripley statue from the 1986 James Cameron’s film ALIENS. This product is divided into a Normal Version and a Bonus Version. So how the performance of this statue is? Let’s take a look!
The statue is designed to refer to the second film Aliens in the Alien series, directed by James Cameron in 1986, and the heroine Ellen Ripley starred by the idol Sigourney Weaver. The story continues from the first episode, Ellen Ripley is finally rescued after decades of drifting in space, returning with marines to the planet where she and her employers first encountered the aliens to save the space colonists there.
Aliens eventually earned $180 million in opening revenue and was widely praised. It received a number of awards, and is considered to be one of the best sequels ever made.
This Ellen Ripley statue uses a 1/4 scale, its total height is 55.7cm, approx. 21.93 inches. The overall weight is about 5.5 kg.
And it belongs to the Ultimate Premium Masterline Series of Prime 1 Studio.
You can see the statue as Ellen Ripley is replicated in a way to exhibit her desperation to survive in the world of Alien invasion. As she stands ready to fight the aliens, her posture is sculpted to execute her intimidating body movement flawlessly. From her short curly hair to the trousers, every detail seems to be made with excellent execution.
The sculpt of the entire outfit faithfully recreates the settings in the film, and you can see that the details on the costume are very delicate.
You can see the half-sleeved shirt she’s wearing along with the wristwatch in her hand as she tightly holds onto the rifle. The wrinkles on the trouser are also seemingly in perfect detail to duplicate the crumbled pants she wore throughout the battle.
Look closely at the white shirt, according the offical introduction, it is made of real cloth material, you can see there are stains and weathering paint on it, plus the greasy sweat effect on the arms and neck, you can see how her condition was as she battle with Aliens and fought for her survival.
The trousers are made of real clothing material, so it is very delicate, the texture and folds on the trousers are accurate, and the corresponding zippers is also included. At the same time, the details of the green ammo bag hanging diagonally are also good.
In addition, the red and white high-top shoes worn by Ellen Ripley are also a highlight. The structure of the shoes seems very strong and durable, suitable for travel in various complex environments, and there are logos of Ripley’s name on it. If in reality, this pair of shoes should not be cheap.
There are also real stains painting on the surface of the shoes, and I really admire the superb skills of the Prime 1 studio and the Blitzway team.
From the back, the weapon straps, the ammo bag, and the wrinkled trousers are also on display as she moves through the Atmosphere Processing plant in a labyrinthine structure.
In addition to the trousers, ammo bag and other clothing and equipment introduced above, she also carried a grenade sling, and you can see that the details of the grenades are also very rich.
This ammo bag can also be disassembled and opened, and you can see that there are other interesting accessories inside, especially it has M-94 Marking Flares pouch with Marking Flares.
Of course, the biggest highlight of the accessories is this weapon. According to offical introduction, it is a combined M240 Flamethrower and M41A Pulse Rifle.
Both weapons can be detached from the statue.
Look at this M240 Flamethrower alone, its structure is very real, and then the surface has the depiction of damaged effect.
Head sculpt has always been a point of concern.
The head sculpt jointly produced by Prime1 studio & Blitzway is a definitely masterpiece.
Actor Sigourney Weaver’s facial features were captured very accurately.
The straight nose, firm eyes, curly short hair, and the depiction of scars on the face are all very lifelike.
The base also has good details. It seems to be the part of a ride that helps her move from one place to the other place.
And it includes the grimy, industrial maze of pipes and grates. The structure and painting finish are perfect. There is also a red emergency button on the side.
This base also has built-in LED lights. After lighted-up, it shows the illusion of countless level floors, which is very amazing.
If you pre-order this Ellen Ripley statue in advance, you will also get a cool Bonus Part: An Alien Ovomorph with an emerging Facehugger!
This alien egg also has very realistic details.
You can see an emerging Facehugger is about to crawl out of an Alien Ovomorph.
The mouth of the alien egg has a depiction of internal flesh blood.
The joints and bones of the Facehugger also have very detailed details, and the surface has a good painting effect.
Sigourney Weaver is by far the only protagonist that deserved more recognition than she already did, specifically because of the character she portrayed in the movie ‘Aliens’. Try to pair the Ellen Ripley statue with the bonus part that comes with the packaging to get the best out of it.
Make the sale figure of Ellen Ripley yours before it runs out of stock becasue it is a Limited Edition.
