Remember the awesome Kenner Aliens toy line from the early 90's? It’s always been one of my favorites. Recently I was hit with inspiration to recreate several of the old Kenner figures, but in a modern, more realistic, NECA style. After looking at Sgt. Apone, all the parts immediately came to me and I knew I had to do it. Sgt. Apone here is “frankensteining” at its best. He’s made from the body of a NECA Jungle Patrol Dutch, the head and arms of an Expendables 2 Hale Caesar, and the lower legs of a NECA Half Life 2 Gordon Freeman. His web gear was taken from a NECA Hicks figure, and made to fit in a similar style as the original Sgt. Apone figure. The bio-mechanical arm is pieced together from terminator bits and random pieces of fodder.

 

The rifle came from an Alien Resurrection Ripley figure. I remade the original figure’s grenades using various bits of fodder, and some polystyrene. I gave mine a chain in the middle and I made each one a bit different, as if they’re carrying different kinds of payloads. I know, I’ve thought far too much about this. The facehugger comes from the old Kenner toy line, just repainted to look like the movie. I painted Sgt. Apone using the original Kenner figure as my guide, making sure I got the exact same color scheme, making him look as totally 90's as possible. So now Sgt. Apone is ready for some bug stomping action! I plan to do an entire line of Kenner Aliens updates, both the Colonial Marines and the Xenomorphs, so be sure to check Mint Condition Customs for more updates!

I was looking at the first picture and I was thinking to myself, "what did he do to the figure, I had that one when I was younger and it looked just like that", lol.. then as I scrolled down, I realized it was an updated custom using the NECA figs, then I saw the last pic.. DOH! That's awesome you kept the whole feel of the old line. I love it!!!
