Publisher's SummaryEdit

Sometime in the future...

Humankind has begun to explore space, colonizing planets throughout the galaxy. Leading the way are the SPACE MARINES, the toughest heavy metal warriors in the galaxy! Armed to the teeth with state-of-the-art weaponry, they keep the peace in a universe filled with danger... and ALIENS!

Vicious, gruesome, and deadly, the Aliens spit acid, and use slithering face huggers to capture their prey. Led by their sinister Queen, the Aliens are spreading everywhere, mutating into more deadly forms as they go. Earth's last defense: The Space Marines, known throughout the galaxy as the best bug-fighters around.

So lock and load, Marine, the invasion is on!


Sgt. Apone, Corp. Hicks and Bishop find themselves confronted by an Alien Queen inside her Hive, but are rescued when Lt. Ripley arrives with her flamethrower. The four soldiers destroy the Xenomorphs present, and Apone chases down the fleeing Queen, killing her with a Mega Grenade. However, the explosion partially collapses the Hive and traps them inside. The survivors dig their way out and head off the rendezvous with Sgt. Drake for the next mission, as an Alien hand emerges from the rubble behind them...

Reprint HistoryEdit

Aliens: Hive War was never offered for individual sale anywhere and was exclusive to the Sgt. Apone toy from Kenner with which it was packaged.
