So, I was not dreaming, AND it appears these are real, since I found a listing on the BF website for them.

Anyone have any experience with the GF9 hard plastic minis, assuming they've been produced and sold before?

I'm unfamiliar with that material, from them, but the images of the Colonial Marine figures look quite nice. How are they to paint up, and do they require assembly, or are they single piece figs.

Also, anyone have a link to images of what the opposition, e.g. the "Aliens" will look like?

Sadly, there's no images of those, other than the very large one that Ripley fights at the end of the movie.

A pity too, that poor "Jonesy" appears to have been let out of the mix, since he was such an integral part of the flick too. Oh well, I guess I can pick up pretty much any cat to go with the game.

Wish they'd do an IFV to go with them, for an affordable price, as well as a dropship, for some more scenario variety.

No, I saw your posting here, which is where I learned about it.

Hadn't seen the link to BGG in the comments section though, so thanks for that.

I believe there are pics of the xenomorphs on Battlefronts website. link Still no details on dates etc.

Found them, link to the picture of the xenomorphs link

Thanks for the links.

I ran across October 2020 as the date, on the BF website.

Are these 28mm?

I'm curious about the scale, too.

Thresher0112 Jul 2020 3:14 p.m. PST

I don't recall seeing any info about that, so assumed they were somewhere between 28mm and 34mm (the latter popular with various collectible collections of late for SciFi).

Looks like the Produs stuff?

Thresher0114 Jul 2020 1:18 a.m. PST

I don't know.

IIRC, the Prodos aliens looked a lot more crisply cast and modeled, but I haven't seen them in the flesh, and it has been some time since I've seen them.
