The detail on that Alien is pretty fantastic for a 70's 'kids' toy.

 My younger brother had that Alien figure, when you pressed a switch in the back of his head his jaws opened and the secondary jaws pushed out. Action Man never knew what hit him. I bought an Alien vinyl kit in the 90s (Produced by Mpc I think) which used the same moulds as the action figure, unfortunatley it did not feature a working jaw mechanism. I also had the Alien movie adaptation, in my opinion, some of Walt Simonson's best work. Will we be getting a Dredd movie comic book adaptation? From Jock perhaps?

 Stew.

I stand corrected - must not have sold well though, otherwise I'm sure that more people would have been aware of it.

Famously the figure didnt sell at all. And a good few stores wouldnt stock it either. The mould for the Alien has been used by a quite a few differant company over the years, so its a familiar looking beast. The original is worth quite a bit though.Why 20th Century Fox would licence so much stuff, from an X cert film, to kids, is strange to say the least. Kenner created some Star Wars sized Alien figures, but these never got past the prototype stage.

I don't do much merchandise buying. Not much in to figures or statuettes. However I have most of the 2000ad  Heroclix figures & some 28" miniatures.

What I would seriously buy is Dredd or 2000ad Lego. Would love some lot that.

Some 12'' statues like the Star Wars Kotobukiya ones or deluxe figures and maybe a helmet replica would be nice.

 When my wife bought me the Halycon 1:1 scale Facehugger kit, from a hobby shop back in the 90's, she remarked on the similarity between the alien head and a penis to the red faced 17 year old lad on the till. She then pointed to the underside of the (built up) Facehugger kit suspended above his head and said sternly "....And that looks like womens bits!" The poor boy forgot how to work the till after that.

 Stew. :D

Is there any news as to who will be distributing these yet?

Distributing what?

If you mean merchandise, I don't think there is any. Or at least none announced.

If it's the film, Lionsgate overseas and Entertainment in the UK.

Merch and figures. Must be some sort of buzz somewhere.

Pop Culture Shock have made a very cool Judge Dredd diorama that will ship in September when the movie premieres. But it's not a movie version of Dredd, it's a classic 2000AD version with Call Me Kenneth!
