Tomopop Review: Bandai's S.H. MonsterArts Alien Warrior
by Scarecroodle

The Xenomorph. Nature's perfect predator. Acidic blood. The ability to incubate in almost any living thing and take on the host's characteristics. A sleek black, bony exterior. Truly one of the greatest monster designs out there.

Full review after the jump.
