Minifigure Review: Pack C from M.U.S.C.L.E. Alien by Super7
Height: 1 7/8ths to 2 1/8ths inches
Set includes: 3 figures
Non-Scalper Price: $6 dollars
* While Ripley's the star of the movie, Kane's kind of the star of the line since he has three separate figures (although two cover his face). Pack C includes Kane with Facehugger which features the Nostromo's executive officer in his weird undergarments with a Facehugger hugging his face. The body sculpt is simple but the Facehugger looks excellent with plenty of detail.
* The Attack Alien is a variant of the standard xenomorph from Pack A and features a slightly different pose and an extended inner mouth. This guy looks excellent; it's clear that Super7 put the most time and attention into the alien itself. I love the open hands and the positioning of them as if he's about to pop out from behind some machinery and grab an unsuspecting crew member.
If you're looking for more figures of these characters, I've reviewed the standard Alien from Pack A and Kane in Spacesuit from Pack B, the ReAction Alien (with Metallic Flesh) and Kane (with Chestburster), Neca's Xenomorph Warrior, and Kenner's Alien versus Predator 2 pack and some of the Kenner Xenomorphs (which included facehugger accessories) from their early 90s Aliens line. If you're looking for more M.U.S.C.L.E. figures, check out the following from both Super7 and Mattel:
