(IG) frightrags As part of our Alien Day (4.26) line up this year, I am proud to announce a brand new addition to our mask line up - MINI MASKS! For the past several years we’ve been reproducing vintage-style Ben Cooper and Collegeville vacuform masks, selling them with t-shirts as a box set. These were full size masks in full size boxes, meant to replicate the costumes from our childhood.

However, with the more masks we released it became apparent that…these take up some serious space! I have stacks of them on my office shelf and as much as I love looking at them, they take up a lot of collectible real estate. We wanted to be able to enjoy the warm nostalgic fuzzies these sets gave us, but without cluttering up people’s display cases.
.
So we went back to the drawing board and tried to think of a different way to showcase our love for these vintage collectibles, but also stay true to them as well. Enter the MINI-MASK. We captured all the details (the eye/mouth holes, rubber band, etc) from the originals, but in a package roughly half the size of an original mask/costume set so it can be displayed much easier. In fact, the box is about the same height/width of a Blu-Ray case.
.
Our first MINI-MASK release will be a replica of the 1979 ALIEN mask produced by Ben Cooper. We recreated the mask and box, but on a smaller scale. The mask itself measures approximately 4.25” x 6” and boxed it is approximately 5.5” x 6.75”. You can see its scale when compared to a VHS tape in this image (sorry, didn’t have the original ALIEN VHS tape handy, lol). This mask is limited to 426, and will be released on Thursday, April 26 at 10am EST. It will be sold on its own (no shirt), and retail for $17.
.
We are stoked about this release, and have several other MINI-MASKS in the works, for new and old characters. Stay tuned! - Ben

Amazon and Alexa:ALIEN Simulation Game Launches April 26


https://twitter.com/AlienAnthology/status/986998357481672706?s=19

https://youtu.be/r2-yEcHd92c


Quote
Hold your breath and step into the ALIEN Universe for the launch of the interactive survival game - the ALIEN: Offworld Colony Simulator – exclusively available on Amazon Alexa devices and AlienUniverse.com. This first-of-its-kind simulation invites players to experience the intensity and imminent threats of ALIEN individually, or up to three players in collaborative gameplay.

Launching one minute prior to ALIEN DAY at 11:59 PM ET on April 25th, the ALIEN: Offworld Colony Simulator is a turned-based survival game that simulates a Weyland-Yutani Space Colony in security lockdown. Weyland-Yutani is inviting civilians to participate in an open Beta test of “The Offworld Colony Simulator” - an advanced system that simulates security breach scenarios in non-terrestrial colonies. Those that participate in the Open Beta will help teach the system’s AI to accurately simulate human behavior in the face of otherworldly dangers.

Utilizing the Amazon Alexa service, players need to collect items, solve puzzles and explore unmarked territories to successfully move throughout the colony, unlock sectors and avoid captuer in a Xenomorph-infested space colony.

Can’t wait until 4/26 to begin the festivities? Fans can get a head start with the Weyland-Yutani Career Placement Test - a multi-question aptitude test to determine if applicants have what it takes for a role at the interplanetary Weyland-Yutani organization. Complemented with a sweepstakes, the test launches for fans on April 23 at AlienUniverse.com.

Dumb question...how does Mondo work exactly? I know the posters are super hard to get/sell out immediately, but are the shirts the same? And when they say they'll go onsale tomorrow, is there a standard time or is it random drop?

My husband would love the Jonesy shirt but I'm not dedicating my life to it tomorrow morning.

Probably a random time, won't know for certain until mondo announces.
 
For posters, go to the site around 8:30 am pacific and spam refresh then hope for the best. Autofill is important, they do paypal but the lag there will kill you. Also they announce on twitter after it goes live on the site. The "random time" sales are usually around 8:50 but they can be earlier. I will be shocked if the poster variant doesn't sell out immediately.

I don't think you have to be as insane for the shirt but I would definitely try to keep your eye on the site around that time.

eta: looks like it's not random but at 12 central/10 pacific which is what they usually do for things like records.

from AlienUniverse (https://www.alienuniverse.com/mainframe/40th-shorts)

Quote
With the classic as inspiration, each of these original shorts capture iconic franchise moments and have unleashed the potential of the Alien universe to thrilling new heights.

Alien: Containment - Written and Directed by Chris Reading

Four survivors find themselves stranded aboard a small escape pod in deep space. Trying to piece together the details around the outbreak that led to their ship’s destruction, they find themselves unsure to trust whether or not one of them might be infected.

Alien: Specimen - Directed by Kelsey Taylor

It’s the night shift in a colony greenhouse, and Julie, a botanist, does her best to contain suspicious soil samples that have triggered her sensitive lab dog. Despite her best efforts the lab unexpectedly goes into full shutdown and she is trapped inside. Little does she know, an alien specimen has escaped the mysterious cargo, and a game of cat and mouse ensues as the creature searches for a host.

Alien: Night Shift - Written and Directed by Aidan Brezonick

When a missing space trucker is discovered hungover and disoriented, his co-worker suggests a nightcap as a remedy. Near closing time, they are reluctantly allowed inside the colony supply depot where the trucker’s condition worsens, leaving a young supply worker alone to take matters into her own hands.

Alien: Ore - Written and Directed by the Spear Sisters

As a hard-working miner of a planet mining colony, Lorraine longs to make a better life for her daughter and grandchildren. When her shift uncovers the death of a fellow miner under mysterious circumstances, Lorraine is forced to choose between escape or defying management orders and facing her fears to fight for the safety of her family.

Alien: Alone - Written and Directed by Noah Miller

Hope, an abandoned crew member aboard the derelict chemical hauler Otranto, has spent a year trying to keep her ship and herself alive as both slowly fall apart. After discovering hidden cargo, she risks it all to power up the broken ship in search of human life.

Alien: Harvest - Directed by Benjamin Howdeshell

The surviving crew of a damaged deep-space harvester have minutes to reach the emergency evacuation shuttle. A motion sensor is their only navigation tool leading them to safety while a creature in the shadows terrorizes the crew. However, the greatest threat might have been hiding in plain sight all along.

After hotels, we should all celebrate a pop culture Day! I've self-limited to one shirt, Weta Workshop figure (maybe 2), and need a poster now.  Sideshow not in budget, but they have a hand signed giveaway opportunity.


I'm hoping for a poster release (after May 5th?) from Spoke Art for an Alien-inspired art show print from Max Dalton which was only featured in the newsletter.

Celebrate 40 years of a sci-fi horror classic with a Funko Shop limited edition Pop! Ripley holding the cutest cat ever to leave Earth. Pop!

I'll wait to get Ripley and Jonesy at Funko shop instead and browse posters later!

No poster this year, wavering on that Fright Rags Jonesy shirt.

They called this version the Bishop shoe and I saw that NECA made a Bishop figure 5 years ago that had a version of that shoe, 

An affordable option, though shipping is high at the Amazon Neca Store (cheaper if one buys more than one figure)

I passed on the Funko Shop, but keeping my eye out for the Super-Sized Alien Queen  Pop Speciality figure out in comic shops (and supposedly Target and Gamestop).

I liked reading that Legion M is involved.  Now to wonder how this may involve some kind of panel discussion at SDCC?

Yeah, I think that Legion M will show more and more of a presence at SDCC which is great for the fans and investors.  I attended one of their panels and visited the Legion M lounge, last SDCC.  I suspect that they will hold a panel to talk about the Alien documentary.

NECA Alien Club Exclusive from 2017 is finally shipping!

From Toyark.com  https://news.toyark.com/2019/06/07/neca-alien-club-exclusive-kenner-tribute-purple-alien-warrior-toyark-exclusive-first-look-348008

For those of you that joined NECA's Alien Club in 2017 (buying around $300 worth of figures gave you a chance to buy the exclusive figure for that year).

Finally, being released after 15 months of waiting!

Quote
Back in 2017, The NECA Store launched the Alien Club. Fans of NECA’s Aliens line could sign up and get that years Aliens figures directly from NECA. The draw was that you would get the figures directly from the NECA warehouse, essentially around the same time they would hit the NECA eBay and Amazon stores. Members received a 2-part Kenner Aliens diorama, and there was an exclusive figure. Fans who kept their membership up throughout 2017 had the opportunity to pre-order the Kenner Tribute Purple Alien Warrior. The figures colors are based on the Alien artwork that appeared in Kenner’s card art for the toy line.

The figure has been delayed all through 2018. But I am happy to share some great news with fans who have been waiting for an update. By this Monday, June 10th, the Purple Alien Warrior will begin shipping to customers! Fans in the U.S. will receive theirs directly from NECA. Fans in the U.K. and Europe who ordered the figure will have a slight delay, as the figure is shipping to their local distributors who will mail them out to fulfill orders.

FYI there really wasn't a 2018 Club (other than a 3-figure release) and there's currently no 2019 Club, despite the label.

Update: June 14
