For anyone unfamiliar with Hiya Toys, they are a Chinese company who will be releasing a series of 1/18 scale / 3.75" Alien figures later this year.
Although the figures are very stylised and won't carry official likeness from the movies, they are based on the 1986 Aliens film with figures of Hicks and Hudson in the works as well as a Power Loader. They are also not going to be cheap, with a single 3.75" figure listed at $24.99 (£19) on Big Bad Toy Store.
What has got fans excited though more than anything is this image of a prototype 1/18 scale M577 APC, again as seen in Aliens. Where as the NECA Alien range will focus on character likeness, the lure of this smaller range will be around the option to have these vehicles and larger scale diorama's. Hiya will be attending SDCC next week and we have been told we will get more details of this and "more surprises" at the show.
The following gallery is a few more images of upcoming Hiya Aliens figures.
