Welcome to the DOGHOUSE!!!
In space…no one can hear you bid!!!
Presented in this listing is the super creepy (and soon to be star of the Alien prequel Prometheus) Alien Space Jockey Micro Statue - Artist Proof Edition, a part of the award-winning line of Alien and Predator collectibles from Palisades Toys! This sweet collectble was an exclusive to Palisades Direct, the web store, before it went out of business and limited to less than 1,000 pieces.
Since 2002 Palisades Toys has been creating some of the most detailed and sophisticated Alien merchandise available in the market. Their first Alien Mini Bust has often been considered by many to have been unequalled ever since, though the Alien Queen blew people away by its dynamic sculpt and new level of detail. Their mammoth Space Jockey, the first licensed product of its kind, was heart-stopping.
Measuring almost 8" in diameter and jam-packed with detail, the Alien Space Jockey Micro Statue is incredibly sculpted and has an amazing paint job, in some ways superior to the original, which had factory production issues. This all new Micro Statue, the reduced size companion to the sold out statue released previously, is perfect for those who want one to display one in a limited space and who missed out on the full-size version.
What’s an Artists’ Proof?
Glad you asked! These are a special, smaller numbered production ‘run’ of a polystone collectible that a manufacturer puts together to use for press samples and various other promotions. They aren’t necessarily created separately from the other mass-produced items, they are very much created the same way their brethren and sistren pieces are, in an assembly line format, but they are cherry-picked from the production line by people who work the factory floor and specially selected as the best of the best because they will ‘represent’ the entire product to press and fans. The numbered ‘run’ is generally very small, and the painting applications and assembly techniques are usually first rate since these are the items that will be the most scrutinized!!!
SPECIAL NOTE: Early in their existence, Palisades labeled products from their ARTIST PROOF production runs either PROMO of PROMO or ARTIST of PROOF, with no official numbering system. After a while they switched to an official numbering system to keep better track of their overall number of issued proofs.
Item was limited in its retail release to 1,000 pieces ONLY, has long since been SOLD OUT, and never re-issued at this size. The product was erroneously numbered at the factory at 2,500 pieces, but only 1,000 pieces were actually produced. The total number of samples in the ARTIST PROOF production run of this item was a mere 90 PIECES!!! Lowest production number available will be selected for the winning bidder.
Condition of Goods
Item(s) are in good condition, with only minor average wear. In some instances packaging may not be factory sealed, because of the expense of some of these items I sometimes open the package for INSPECTION ONLY to ensure that there is no damage to the item itself. If you have an issue with this policy PLEASE STATE THIS BEFORE SHIPMENT OF THE ITEM. If you do not, using 'broken tape seal' as a reason for a return is not valid. The item has never been removed from packaging for display or any other purposes than inspection or photography. Packaging is in very good overall condition, but does have a couple of corner dents and dings, despite the fact that it came from a sealed factory case, but we are talking MINOR.
