CORPORAL HICKS AND “DOG ALIEN” BURST INTO COMIC SHOPS IN MAY

Pair of Fan Favorites Join the Alien & Predator Official Figurine Collection from Eaglemoss Collections and Twentieth Century FOX Consumer Products

(March 6, 2017 – New York, NY) – Two of sci-fi cinema’s most recognized characters take center stage this May when Corporal Hicks and the “Dog Alien” make their way into comic shops as part of the Alien & Predator Official Figurine Collection, the most extensive range of classic characters and creatures ever assembled from the Alien, Predator, AVP and Prometheus movie franchises.
Released under Eaglemoss Collections’ new Hero Collector brand and authorized by Twentieth Century FOX Consumer Products, each figure is presented in terrifyingly realistic detail at 1:16 scale and in an iconic pose taken right from the movies.

Straight out of the original Alien and standing at 5” tall, the look on the face of U.S. Colonial Marine Corporal Dwayne Hicks (AUG168859) is one of sheer astonishment, as he checks out a dead facehugger on the tip of his vintage Ithaca Model 37 pump-action shotgun.

Spawned from a four-legged host animal, the Runner or “Dog Alien” (AUG168861) from Aliens3 is an adult Xenomorph built for speed. At 5 ½” tall with a long and deadly tail swirling up from behind, it’s crouched for action and ready to pounce.
Like all figures in this handcrafted collection, each has been cast in a specially formulated metallic resin and painted by hand.
Priced at $29.95, each figurine comes in a four-color display box and will available in comic shops at the end of May 2017.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
