Initially unveiled on Alien Day, Sideshow's Alien King Internecivus raptus rex Maquette is now displayed in a new set of photos showing what the Queen's companion from Aliens might have looked like had Ripley encountered him, too.

The Alien King Maquette will be available to pre-order beginning this Thursday, May 12th, so be sure to keep an eye on Sideshow's website to see when the collectible goes live.

Designed as a companion to the Alien Queen from James Cameron's Aliens, and created with input from some of the Stan Winston Studio artists who helped create the iconic creature from the 1986 film (which itself was based on H.R. Giger's groundbreaking Alien designs), the Alien King Maquette is priced at $999.99.

The 20-inch-tall King towers over the seven small Xenomorphs who move at his feet, ready to hunt down and spray acid at their next meal. To help hold fans over until this item can sit on their shelves, we have new photos displaying the Alien King Maquette (courtesy of Sideshow):
