Rare ALIEN Statues

In keeping with our ALIEN theme this week, I wanted to show you some very rare and extraordinary polystone statues now available for pre-order from Sideshow Collectibles.

These statues were previously created by a company called Fewture Models and once were only available in Japan. Sideshow has recently acquired the rights to produce and import a limited quantity of these collectibles.

Serious collectors of Alien merchandise will definitely want to look at these rare statues. This is the first time that these intricate statues have been made available outside of Japan. Don't miss the gallery of additional pictures available thru each link below.

"In space no one can hear you scream" -- Niteman Speaks

One of my favorite Sci-Fi movies of all time ... in my top 10 ... is the 1979 movie Alien, directed by Ridley Scott. Sigourney Weaver as Ripley, Tom Skerritt as Captain Dallas, John Hurt as Kane, Harry Dean Stanton as Brett are the most notable actors.

Enjoy the following movie clips and check out the awesome collectible figures at the bottom of the blog from Hot Toys available for pre-order now.

Lou Who? No ... HULU ..... Niteman Speaks!

What is Hulu?

Hulu is an online video on demand service that is a joint venture of NBC Universal and News Corp.

Hulu offers full-length episodes of NBC and FOX television programs [some with clips only], shows from cable channels like Sci Fi, FX, Bravo, Oxygen and others, and about 100 complete movies.

If you watch a lot of TV like I do, you'll enjoy the content choices which are anything from classic television to current first-run series.

Here is a small example of just some of the available content:

Alfred Hitchcock
The Night Gallery
The Outer Limits

Lost in Space
Battlestar Galactica Classic
Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea
Swamp Thing

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Firefly
Roswell
The Invisible Man

Stargate Atlantis
Heroes
Medium
Ghost Hunters

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Total Recall 2070
Tremors

UPDATE: Hulu is now out of beta and open to the public! Everyone can register!!!

This is a pretty kewl service. I've been watching Buffy TVS again from the beginning. I had forgotten how good those early episodes really were. Also I've had a chance to catch up on some recent programs that I've missed.

Check out their Web site!

PLEASE NOTE:
This service is currently available only in the United States.

'Til Next Time!
