From new books to official short films and an audio drama of William Gibson's unfilmed Alien III script, there were no shortages of reveals on this year's Alien Day, and Weta Workshop is adding their unique style to the celebration with a Mini Epics: Xenomorph vinyl figure that features a stylish twist on H.R. Giger's classic design, complete with acidic drool.

Mini Epics: Xenomorph Vinyl Figure: "Forty years ago, director Ridley Scott’s masterpiece of science fiction, Alien, burst onto the big screen, spawning one of the most iconic film franchises of all time.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Alien, we’re thrilled to unleash the Xenomorph into our Mini Epics mix.

This highly stylised figure stands at 6 inches tall and should be displayed safely away from small, furry things.

Price: $29.99"
