Description

eBay item number:
190635483881
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.
This needs no introduction, it is the 1/4 scale full size statue of the original puppet used in Aliens.  Pulled from a mold made from the original puppet created by Stan Winston and crew there are likely only a dozen or so fully built models out there.  Massive in size it is 4 feet from tip of tail to fangs and nearly 40 inches from crown to base.  The upper torso and head was used by Stan Winston Studios with Sideshow for the famous 1/4 scale Alien Queen bust which kicked off the Stan Winston line for Sideshow all those years ago.

Original went for close to 30,000 in Profiles in History auction and last one sold on Ebay last year for 5600.

The build up you see here is unique in that it keeps the original "stalking" pose but without the characteristic "rod through the crotch" which rather spoils the majestic impression the piece should deliver.  This is VERY difficult to achieve because the original 1/4 scale maquette was in fact a PUPPET with moveable legs that was NEVER intended to be a stand-alone statue.  The massive weight of the head and the torso normally is unable to be supported by the legs alone, hence the need for the support rod through the crotch.

This problem was solved by partial hollowing of the torso to reduce weight as well as massive screws threaded through the hips to secure the legs in place to the torso.  The core of the base is made out of hard wood through which are placed 3.5 inch long screws into the legs.  The entire statue is then locked in place with the two long threaded screws and 2 nuts above and below the base.  In this manner, the gigantic size and weight of the Queen is supported without the rod. 

It goes without saying that the base is completely custom built and as heavy as the Queen herself to support her weight.

This piece is custom built and painted by a professional paintmaster to exacting details.  There is no damage to the piece.  There will be some wear marks at the base where the holes have been screwed through to hold the threaded screws.  It will come with a fabricated Aliens: Alien Queen plaque that sets off the piece.

SHIPPING:  BUYITNOW ONLY I will ship for free.  Again, I am unique in that I am willing to ship this statue where most people demand pick up only.  My local UPS manager is an expert on shipping and will pack this up professionally fully insured against any/all damage.  THIS WILL NOT BE CHEAP.  Estimates at between 500 and 700 dollars domestically.  International shipping is possible but will run close to 1200 dollars depending on location.  For international bidders, REMEMBER that CUSTOMS may OPEN the box and we can not be held responsible for what they do.  It must also be declared and for a piece of this magnitude, expense, and rarity I will NOT LIE about value.

Best offers I accept DOES NOT INCLUDE shipping and insurance which will need to be added on separately.  Insurance on this piece with signature confirmation is non-negotiable.

If you are crazy enough to buy something this big and this expensive internationally, then you should be rich enough to pay the shipping and customs charges. Sorry about that.

I have been a seller on Ebay for over a decade with 332 feedback and counting with an impeccable reputation.  Check my feedback and understand it is built on selling and buying high end statues and collectibles and fine art, not dollar items.

Due to the size and complexity of this piece, all sales are final and non-returnable.  I will work with you as much as possible if there is any problem but claims with UPS will be the responsibility of the buyer as you will have the actual statue and packaging which UPS will demand to inspect in case of any damage.  All claims will be paid directly to you the buyer.  Again as this will be professionally packed and shipped by UPS themselves, claims in case of damage should not be a problem.

Please pay within 3 days of end of auction or communicate with me.  Otherwise, non-paying bidder complaint will be filed and piece will be relisted.
