Lanard Toy Alien 7-Inch Warrior Xeno Action FigureThe prettiest figure in Lanard's 7-inch Alien party is the $10 Warrior Xeno, which pushes all sorts of buttons. The metallic blue plastic looks black in spots, which makes it look like some weird sofubi figure - or a 1990s Kenner Gorilla Alien [FOTD #256], which is on my short list of absolute favorite toys of the 1990s. It's not nearly as imaginative - but it is charmingly off-model, and has an added spray of green on top of the ding-dong dome. There's an articulated jaw, plus a grand total of 19 points of articulation.

Other than the silver teeth and the spray of green on the dome or the forearm hacksaws, the figure is largely molded in a gorgeous metallic blue and left to fend for his own devices. It's not as accurate as NECA's figures, but it's much cheaper and probably more durable - we'll see how the metallic plastic holds up to the ages.

Due to how this figure looks and where it was sold, it's hard to know if I'm looking at a bootleg concept turned legit, a "Sam's Choice" action figure, or an art piece inflicted on the mass market. I assume the colorful weirdness is either an appeal to kids or a licensing requirement, and it's possible the price point was to not step on what NECA is doing - but I do not know this to be fact. Knowing Walmart's desire for low-price products, I remain strong in my belief that this may exist so Walmart can wave it in front of Hasbro, Mattel, and McFarlane Toys and say "now how's about you figure out how to give us a $10 collector Darth Vader, Spider-Man, Spawn, Batman, and He-Man?"

Lanard Toy Alien 7-Inch Warrior Xeno Action Figure

The design makes a lot of sense - Lanard opted for ball-and-socket joints rather than bend-and-swivel or swivel joints for the wrists and ankles. This is unusual in this scale, but allows for a greater range of motion with fewer pieces - it's like a superior swivel. The knees have a good range of motion and the neck swivels well, but the elbows only budge a bit. They swivel nicely, but there's not a lot of bend to it. It still looks better than anything else ten bucks can get you on the full-retail side off a store aisle, though.

The accessory is a tube with a facehugger in it - the tail and fingers seem to be bent differently than the other versions, but it's still the same basic design. The tube cap comes off if you want to remove the figure and throw the facehugger on some other toy's head. It's a nice bonus.

As I have written up literally thousands of toys I do not need more things in my home to bury myself in when I die. Having said that, I'd be in no rush to get rid of this if I needed to raise some cash. It's weird and pretty, just like me. Recommended.
