So I was back in Bristol,where I was born,over the weekend just gone,and it being a city in all has it's own Forbidden Planet shop,so I pay a visit to said establishment and discover they have one of the licenced Alien heads on display,seven hundred and ninety nine pounds was the tag hanging round its neck....
Well,of course I had to have a good look at it see? And I can truly say that you're not missing much,I don't know if it's because I'm used to looking at the one I have made or that it really is not that good,either way I was disappointed and the pics you can see of it actually make it look better...
The finish is a flat dark grey,and is an obvious mould,no attempt at high or low lighting not one teaspoon of clear gloss noticeable anywhere and certainly a rushed job applying the jaw tendons,ok so its got a clear dome and mine doesn't but if I forked out 800 quid for that thing I'd be sending it back etc etc etc
They did however have a nickle plated 1/1 endo skull which was much more impressive for 325 Very Happy

Yeah, from the pics it didn't look all that great.
I wouldn't dream of paying that ammount of money for it. Actually, I wouldn't buy it unless it was very cheap.
Judging from the pictures it just looks like a glorified rubber mask...
