Action Figure Review: Xenomorph (Ice Blue Metallic) from Aliens Action Vinyls by The Loyal Subjects

 Ready for yet another look at a mighty cool stocking stuffer? Today I'm checking out another impressive paint variant of the Xenomorph Action Vinyl from The Loyal Subjects! This one is Ice Blue Metallic, baby! Recently The Loyal Subjects sent me some Action Vinyls and I've had a great time reviewing them. I reviewed lots of the Masters of the Universe Action Vinyls earlier this year, but now I'm getting the chance to check out a few of their other properties, such as Game of Thrones and Aliens. There's a list of retailers for these little guys but I've also been seeing them at Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart has recently added a collector section to many of their stores in electronic where they are carrying many figures from NECA, McFarlane, Funko, and now the Loyal Subjects. I was in a Wal-Mart yesterday that had just gotten a brand new case of the Aliens and Masters of the Universe Action Vinyls. These guys are getting easier to find, hopefully, so make sure to keep an eye out for them when you're out doing your shopping! Let's check out the Ice Blue Metallic Xenomorph after the break...

 The Facts:

Height: 3 1/2 inches

Articulation: Balljointed ankles, hinged knees, balljointed hips, bendable tail, balljointed midtorso, double balljointed shoulders, swivel wrists, balljointed head, and spring hinged jaw.

Accessories: Ovomorph egg

Non-Scalper Price: $10-15 dollars

* On the left is the Ice Blue Metallic Xenomorph I'm looking at today while the Black Battle Damage Xenomorph is on the right. The Xenomorphs in this series are simple paint variants of one another, so if you check out the review of the Battle Damaged alien you'll get the full scoop. Today I'm mostly pointing out the coolness of the paint job on the Ice Blue Metallic guy.
 The Positives:

*  I love the look of this Xenomorph! Yeah, he's not as "realistic" as the Battle Damaged Xenomorph but he's much cooler. Like an ice cube. This guy reminds me of the Kenner Warrior Alien which I don't actually have yet from the vintage line. The metallic blue color here is excellent and, of course, he's got all of the great articulation, the pop out inner mouth, and the bendable tail that the Battle Damaged Xeno had, too.

* Like the Battle Damaged Xenomorph, this guy also comes with an egg, which is a pretty cool accessory. It's also metallic blue. It's cool on its own, it's cool when posed with the figure, and it actually even looks good with the old Kenner Aliens stuff. Some of the Action Vinyls come with open eggs and some come with closed eggs, so you get some variety if you amass a small army of Xenomorphs.

 * To add a bit more personalization and fun to each release The Loyal Subjects adds a bio card. It's a cool little extra that features a nice paragraph about the Xenomorph as well as a checklist of all of the figures in the series. 
  Like the Battle Damaged Xenomorph, this guy is Epic too. I love the metallic blue color on this figure as it's so eye-catching. Whether you're an Aliens fan picking up another piece for your collection or your shopping for that hard to buy for person who would appreciate a Xenomorph in their stocking, this is a hit. The Ice Blue Metallic Xenomorph comes packed 1 in 12, or one in every case, so he should be an easier find. Shop around using The Loyal Subjects' a retailer list and build up your Xenomorph army today!
