June marks the start of wedding season, and we've got the perfect gift for that hard-to-buy-for geeky bride and groom.
Sideshow Collectibles has released the first images of their glowing Alien Egg, a detailed miniature ovomorph and companion facehugger as seen in the Alien series. Unlike the current trend to create gigantic life-sized collector pieces, this adorable Alien Egg is roughly the size of a small fist and has a special light-up feature at the base of the pod. It's intentionally sized this way to complement Sideshow's line of larger limited-edition Alien Legacy statues. They're available for pre-purchase now at $64.99 each for delivery by March 2018.
Here's the official description and full gallery of images below:
“But each one of these things comes from an egg, right? So who’s laying these eggs?”
Before the Xenomorph can become a full-grown nightmare, it has to begin life somewhere.
In honor of the Alien legacy, Sideshow takes you back to the earliest evolution of fright with our new Alien Egg Statue, direct from the planet Acheron to your collection.
Also known as an Ovomorph, this egg encases evil within. Made to be in scale with our Alien statue, the Alien Egg statue sits at just over 5 inches tall to complement its full-grown Xenomorph siblings.
Petal-like segments of the egg’s textured exterior peel back to reveal an emerging Facehugger looking for a human host. A bit of the fleshy interior is visible, showing that this egg is not just a shell but actually a living thing.
The Alien Egg statue lights up with an eerie glow, with illumination in the lower portion of the egg sac. The statue sits on a base reminiscent of where the eggs were first found on Acheron, and root-like tendrils snake out from beneath it.
This Ovomorph has been waiting for another sign of life in the desolate reaches of space. Host your very own Alien Egg statue for your collection today, or it’s game over, man!
