Eggs and Aliens

Xenomorph Egg

Prior to Alien (1979), the only thing known as a Facehugger was your Grandma and/or Aunt. Since then we’ve come to know Facehuggers as alien parasite thingmajigs that attach themselves to your glossy mug that shoves an uncomfortably familiar appendage down your throat, and lays an egg in your stomach, where your chest will hatch it in full-blown splatter-rama.

So who wouldn’t want a Facehugger to call your own? Now you can – and you don’t have to go to some distant planetoid to get one. Releasing in March 2016, Neca™ is offering a life-size (!) Xenomorph Egg, “complete with its own eerie lighting and life size Facehugger!”

Here’s the yolk: “As seen in the 1986 horror classic Aliens, this full-sized replica stands almost 36” tall, and articulated flaps with a wire armature allow you to actually open the top folds of the egg. The included full-size Facehugger has a bendable tail, so you can pose it anywhere, waiting to drop on unsuspecting prey from overhead, or simply lurking inside the egg.”

“The Life Size Xenomorph Egg is made of detailed, hand-painted foam and stands on its own. A switch activates the LED lights inside the base to create a menacing, otherworldly glow effect. Requires 3 AAA batteries, not included.”

No price given, but this sort of thing is beyond matters of money. Too bad they don’t have it ready to go for this Christmas; I would’ve asked all my friends to get it for me, and then end up with three of ’em.
