His artwork opened doorways to corners of our imaginations we didn't even know existed, making the H.R. Giger Museum in Switzerland a must-see experience for fans of the Alien franchise and the artist behind so many of the film's iconic imagery (just ask our Editor-in-Chief Jonathan James, who wrote about his time there in our Deadly Destinations column). One of the pieces on display in that museum is an Alien statue that once dazzled onlookers in Japan, and now the fine folks at CoolProps, in collaboration with the H.R. Giger Museum, have reproduced that statue as a detailed Alien maquette that will be released by Sideshow Collectibles in 2018:
From Sideshow Collectibles: "At the H.R. Giger exhibition held in Japan known as “H.R. GIGER EXHIBITION IN JAPAN 87”, the Alien statue on display was made from the screen-used suit for the movie “ALIEN”. Many fans were fascinated with its beauty still hold this Alien display as a holy grail.
30 years have passed by since the exhibition and this Alien statue is now welcoming the visitors at Museum HR Giger in Switzerland.
Under the cooperation of Museum HR Giger, CoolProps were able to gather information from the museum and was able to faithfully reproduce the Alien statue.
The case you can display along with this statue also replicates the atmosphere of the museum down to the wood frame. The museum base is replicated exactly.
Approved by the Museum H.R. Giger, this is a holy grail for any Alien fan!
