Put on a Puppet Show with these Glow-in-the-Dark Monster Finger Puppets

If I told them once, I told them a hundred times, to put Spinal Tap first, then Puppet Show last. Now’s your chance to be the real headline act when you put on a show with this collection of goofy looking alien finger puppets.

I can’t decide which one is my favorite. I’m debating between the one with six claws sticking out of its head, and the one with the four eyeball pods. Fortunately, you don’t have to choose. For just $7.95(USD), you get all eight wacky space monsters, perfect for putting on both impromptu and well-rehearsed puppet shows. Plus, they glow in the dark, so can lower the lights during your performance for added fun.

The complete set of glowing finger monsters is available now from Archie McPhee. What sort of story will you tell with your alien menagerie?

Alien Facehugger Prop Replica Is Supremely Nasty

Out of all of the stages of xenomorph development, I think the facehugger is the nastiest. This disgusting creature not only has eight creepy, crawly, boney legs, but a snake-like tail, and a gross mouth that’s ready to stick its tongue down your throat and implant its egg into your belly. EEESH. If after all of that, you still really like the idea of having a facehugger in your house, you might want to check this out.

This impressive replica looks just like the facehugger prop they used in James Cameron’s Aliens. This gross looking monstrosity stands 28-inches tall as it coils up its goo-covered tail and gets ready to lunge at your head. It’s a “museum-quality” replica, though I’m not sure what museum would want this in its collection.

Hollywood Collectibles Group is making just 500 of these, but priced at $699.99(USD) each, I’d expect they might take a little time to sell out. That said, there are surely some die-hard Alien fans who will jump at the chance to add one to their collection. Me, I’m sticking to plush facehuggers.

Moving Alien Storage Container Holds Cookies Not Facehuggers

What is the deal with all the characters in the Alien franchise? They go into a dark, creepy room with alien eggs everywhere. Inevitably one of them starts to open, the character has to go stare straight inside, and BAM… facehugger. I’d so not look into anything creepy that opens just as I get close to it. Still, you need a cool place to store cookies, so check this out.

This is an Alien motion activated storage container from Middle of Beyond. When you get close, it glows an ominous green, opens up and BAM… cookies. I’d totally look right into this one, mostly to be sure those are chocolate chips, not raisins.

It measures 21″ high and 16″ wide, it should hold lots of cookies. It’s expensive at $250(USD), but grandma’s cookies deserve a nice place to call home.

Inside the Barbican’s sci-fi movie wonderland

The best science fiction movies use costumes, models and physical props to sell their vision of the future. Alien, for instance, would be nothing without the compression suits worn by its ill-fated crew outside the Nostromo. From June 3rd, the Barbic...

Alien Egg Cake Balls: Kane Eats ‘Em Every Day!

In space, no one can hear you… Bake? So unless you have been hiding under a rock somewhere, you know that Alien: Covenant hit theaters last week. To celebrate, Los Angeles baker Rosanna Pansino of Nerdy Nummies shows us how to make alien egg cake balls.

I’m just hoping that they don’t hatch in your stomach and lead to a chestburster popping out of your ribcage. Although I should point out that wouldn’t stop me from eating more. Because I know these are going to be delicious. Why let a little thing like a chestburster stop you?

These are perfect for those Alien marathon viewing parties. Your guests will love them.

Alien Covenant Neomorph POP! Figure: In Home, No One Can Hear You Scream

If you are a collector of all the cool POP! Action figures you will definitely want to add this new Alien: Covenant Neomorph set to your collection. It comes with not just one, but two figures – a big mamma Neomorph, and a little baby Neomorph.

They creatures remind me a bit of the demogorgon from Stranger Things before it splits its face open. That toddler neomorph is actually very cute. He’s like the Baby Groot of the Alien universe. 

The large alien is 3.75-inches tall with the toddler figure at 1.5-inches tall. The figures will be available on Entertainment Earth this July for $10.99(USD) for the pair, and you can pre-order them now.
