Check out this severely awesome Judge Dredd vs Alien Polystone Statue collectible.
It’s a Limited Edition of only 1000 that draws its inspiration from the Judge Dredd/Alien crossover series by Dark Horse Comics.
The polystone statue is sculptured by First4Figures in conjunction with 2000AD, using the classic Henry Flint illustration. Every detail is intact in what is a perfect representation of the transmogrifying of the Dredd/Alien heads.
I first posted about this collectible back in January because I loved it, but at the time it had actually been sold out. It seems someone didn’t follow through on their purchase and as a result someone else is going to get very lucky.
This is a Limited Edition (750 pieces) polystone statue of a Predator riding an Alien (Xenomorph) horse. Since it was previously sold out, and since it is extremely cool, consider it “very limited”.
Price is US$249.99.

In April 20th Century Fox Chairman Tom Rothman confirmed an Alien prequel film was under discussion and, at that time, hoped it would be helmed by Ridley Scott, the director of the original Alien that started the whole franchise.
In May Ridley Scott’s brother Tony stated a director has been attached to the project but it wasn’t Ridley Scott – it was Carl Rinsch.
Then in June EW broke the news that 20th Century Fox weren’t going to green-light the prequel unless Ridley Scott was at the helm.
Finally, three months later, it seems the saga has come to an end with 20th Century Fox prevailing. According to Variety, Ridley Scott has now been officially attached as the director.
Variety also report that Jon Spaihts has been tapped to write the screenplay. Spaihts apparently scored the job after pitching to 20th Century Fox and the Scott’s production company, Scott Free. Spaihts is currently working on the script to a Keanu Reeves space epic titled Passengers, Children of Mars for Disney, and The Darkest Hour which Wanted’s Timur Bekmambetov will produce.
The Alien prequel will see the first time Ridley Scott has returned to the franchise since he directed the original 1979 Alien.
It is too early for release date details.
Whilst promoting his new movie The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 filmmaker Tony Scott has called “time out” on the new Alien prequel.
In April 20th Century Fox Chairman Tom Rothman confirmed development of the Alien prequel film stating that Fox hoped Ridley Scott, the director of the original Alien, would direct the prequel. A month later Tony Scott (Ridley’s brother) confirmed relative unknown Carl Rinsch was attached to direct the film. Then EW reported that Fox insiders were saying Rinsch didn’t have the support of 20th Century Fox who were “not interested in greenlighting a prequel unless [Ridley] Scott himself directs.”
In the latest instalment, ComingSoon.net tried to quiz Tony Scott on the status of the film, to which he replied:
“I’m going to call a time out on that one. I don’t want to get caught in the middle. We’re in process on that, but I don’t have enough information to bring it to this table, but we’re going to make it.”
Although no director is officially attached at this stage, at the very least we can take some good from Scott’s comments – that despite Fox’s reservations, they’re still going to make the new film.
