    Hello everyone - Very excited about the upcoming Prometheus film! Been an ALIEN fan since the early 80s when I was able to sneak in my parents room and watch it from behind the couch LOL! I'm a professional artist and have always wished toy companies would have invested the time to create a line of figures for the fans (they almost did but canceled the line due to parental pressure). So I have decided to take it upon myself to make my own.

    The attached link shows the work in progress of the original Nostromo cast up to this point (May 19). The figures will be in 1:18 scale (approx. 3.75" tall) I hope to have the entire crew of the Nostromo as well as the Nostromo Galley diorama complete by Sept 2012. It's a labor of love which I hope you will enjoy!...oh and expect some Prometheus figures to be created as well.

    I can't say enough how enjoyable your sculpted faces are. Looking at your version of Ripley is equal parts cool and creepy (and I mean "creepy" in a good way.) So much character and expression. Nice work!
