- "Sideshow Collectibles is thrilled to present the Alien Warrior Legendary Scale™ Bust. Our artisans have replicated one of Hollywood's most memorable monsters to exacting standards, and at roughly one-half scale, this miniature xenomorph is no less intimidating than its life size counterpart. Hand-finished with a wealth of fine detail and signature glossy-wet appearance, the Legendary Scale™ Bust accentuates the distinct exo-skeletal sinewy ridges, and brown coloration of the warrior as seen in James Cameron's 1986 sequel. Incorporated into the base of the bust is a relief design of an Alien egg and facehugger - a special nod to the rich film lore of the Aliens universe. With terrifying inner jaws exposed, the eerie Alien Warrior Legendary Scale™ Bust is so lifelike you can almost hear it's menacing hiss - think twice before getting too close!"

- The Presenting the Alien Warrior Legendary Scale Bust blog and Alien Warrior product page on Sideshow Collectibles.com misquote Newt's line in Aliens. In the film she said "they mostly come at night... mostly.", but the blog and site say "They mostly come out at night…mostly."
