    Those look fantastic. I really want the alien?
    Do only hobby stores sell these?
    Hmmm, can't seem to find knee joints for the Hybrid in the package box pic.

    BBTS had the Aliens in stock, and they're already gone. The Pred and poseable Movie Masterpiece models are available for preorder.

    I soooo want the Predalien and Alien ones. Maybe the Predator if he's articulated enough, since NECA has such a bad history with limited leg poses with robed/skirted characters.

    That reminds me, I still need to get the AvP Pred figure, the one with the cool mask, Celt or something?

    Maybe they are - they have two legs, two arms, a mouth - perhaps the ones we usually see originated from human hosts.

    If you look at Alien 3 (shudder) as a point of reference, they take on characteristics based on their host. One might say that all "Aliens" as we know them are the "human" hybrid versions.

    Ditto on the host thing.

    The Alien Resurrection freak's appearance was because of the Queen "giving birth" to it via human standards, and not by popping out of a host body.

    I found them today at my LCS, I was going to get the Predalien but was 7 bucks short. Predator isn't coming out till later.

    I'd shoot for the Alien and Predalien. Rather meh about the Preds though.

    Depends on which continuity. In the Dark Horse Comics continuity before Alien 3, no.

    In the movie continuity, the xenos take on characteristics of whatever their host is. As mentioned previously, the one from Alien 3 has dog characteristics.

    There's a really cool picture of the movie version of the Pred hybrid on the AVP:R wikipedia article.

    I really want the Alien figure, going to have to keep an eye out. I just love that they used the design from Aliens, it's always been my favorite.

    I bet the comic shops will have these. I really like the Preds, not so much the Predalien but the normal Alien looks killer.

    The Alien looks sweet. I might have to make like a Predator and hunt one down.
