“Aliens” was recently named the number one greatest movie sequel by Empire Online. It was a potent follow-up to Ridley Scott’s 1979 original, giving fans more in just about every way, especially when it came to the titular aliens. The item up for auction in today’s Prop-Watch is actually a promotional item more than it is a prop… but what a promotional item it is for you alien lovers.
That thing stands 7 1/2 feet tall. It’s an original in-store “Aliens” display from 1986. It isn’t exactly in pristine condition — there are multiple cracks in the body of the beast and the tail is gone completely — but are you really going to complain when 7 1/2 feet of “Aliens” awesome is standing in front of you? Just be prepared to make the trip to Indiana or hire a mover. And prepare for the opening bid of $999 to rise, because my guess is that it will.
