Polar Lights Model Kits: 4 weeks of Christmas Part 4

Before you lay your head down Christmas Eve and visions of new model kits start dancing through your heads, let’s finish up our rundown of projects in the hopper here at Polar Lights models. I hope you have enjoyed the looks the progress on Kane, the U.S.S. Reliant and King Kong kits.

We announced acquiring the Alien/Aliens license at Wonderfest. Here is a look at something we have talked much about yet, the Alien Queen! This is the digital sculpt as rendered by Bill Wieger, the same sculptor we used on the Kane kit. The model offers a dynamic look at the creature. We are still nailing down the details on the final scale and release date. We’ll announce more when we know more.

Well, that wraps up a great 2013! Please have happy and safe holidays. We’ll see you next year!

    You guys are knocking it out of the park with these new kits! Incredible work, I can’t wait.

  5. Dave says:

    That is an amazing looking sculpt.

    And you know it’s the Queen, they’re always wearing high heels! 🙂

    Absolutely beautiful!

    I’m looking forward to seeing what the 1/1000 Sulaco looks like!

  7. Guy says:

    Looks great – hope you’re going to cast the jaw tendons and teeth in transparent plastic! And I’m pleased to see it looks like you’re going with the correct plastic pallet grating (as per in front of the Sulaco’s airlock) on the base!

    Any chance of a reissue of the Narcissus?

  9. Roger S says:

    Please tell me this will be in the same scale as Halcyon’s Ripley / Power Loader.

  10. RB says:

    I think the Halcyon Powerloader was 1/12th, and the stated scale for the R2 Queen has been 1/9th. Pretty sure though that if the Round 2 Queen is successful, a Round 2 Powerloader wouldn’t be far behind…

  11. Tom says:

    WOW! I will be the first in line to get this kit! One suggestion: Please mold the jaw/teeth in clear. That would be the finishing touch to an already wicked kit design.

    are we going to see test builds at wonderfest this year??? or any new aliens kits in physical form for that matter??

  13. Moviekits says:

    That’s simply awesome. Congrats for your work.


  14. Tom says:

    I am very disappointed that this kit was canceled. I was really looking forward to the challenge of this one. You should remove the digital sculpt from this blog. Very disappointing indeed.

      We are equally as disappointed I’m sure.
      I don’t feel comfortable removing anything from our blog. We talked about it, we showed it, we ultimately weren’t able to do it. That is the true history, and I wouldn’t want to give the impression that we are trying to rewrite that.
