    The only other CM piece that will be considered second to the AP Alien in terms of that extra "did you know about this?" is The Creature.
    The Creature is being offered to a wide audience but it will most likely have a very limited run. The input from CBD members involving the base gives it that extra attachment for members of this community that score one. Short of CM giving us a GOD Bruce Lee or another super limited exclusive the closest thing to AP Alien seems to be The Creature and that's kind of a reach.
    That said it is nice that interest for this piece is out there and sort of cool that is like the unicorn of the CM collection.

    :yes:
    I see the Creature being a lot like the AP Alien - kinda get it while you can or miss out forever. I see the Creature as a total enthusiast's piece (either CM enthusiast, Creature enthusiast or both), with few changing hands after the run is over and CM have moved on.
    Raf seeing those pictures you posted over at SF made me take a fresh look at my base this morning. It's fascinating to note just how many Alien design archetypes Paul Komoda crammed in - from the tubing, to the circular tail, egg shape, and facehugger knuckles. That he got it to all work together so seemlessly and coherently is testament to the sculptor.
