This is an action toy, with some die-cast metal parts, of a science fiction/anime character or item.
"Get away from her, you (insert expletive from the movie here)!"
That classic quote from the final confrontation scene with the Alien queen in the 1986 "Aliens" movie comes right to mind when one sees this new entry in Aoshima's New Century Gohkin series! The iconic Ellen Ripley gears up once again in this 1/2-scale, highly articulated die-cast yellow power loader. Measuring 26cm tall, the power loader is accurately detailed and features 16 ratchet joints to allow for a wide array of poses. Its 20 movable parts include a roll bar that can be opened, realistic functioning actuators, movable synchronized arms with working clamps, and movable synchronized legs.
Of course, you can't have a power loader without Ellen Ripley aboard! An articulated figure of Ripley (Aoshima's interpretation, believe it or not!) is included to place in the power loader. This normal edition release comes with an M41A pulse rifle and a M240 flame thrower.
Aoshima has also produced a limited edition version of a weathered power loader that comes with a torn-apart Bishop figure!
