"In space no one can hear you scream" - this quote changed the lives of some in the end of the 70s ... because the movie 'ALIEN' was released in 1979. Over time 'ALIEN' drew many people in to it's spell, even in the present. The main creature of the film 'THE ALIEN' - one of the most famous creature in Horror / Sci-Fi film history was made in to hundreds of collectible merchandise, from figures to statues. A "must-have" for the true collector.
YOUR MAJESTY - or - A DREAM BECOMES TRUE
For years I had the desire, one day to own a life-size Queen. Due to the rarity and the absurd prices, I assumed that this would actually remain forever a dream and wish. In so many threads here I have written again and again ... "one day I will have a lifesize queen" ..... this has always been my greatest wish and also personally the Holy Grail for me as an alien collector. .... and finally .... I HAVE A QUEEN! ... Yes, it is true!
Some may still remember ... a few months ago, a Queen in a very poor condition was offered for auction on a Dutch marketplace. It is a very rare Distortions Unlimited Queen of which only a few pieces have ever been produced. The US Company Distortions Unlimited (DU) acquired the Alien license and the forms/molds of the Alien Queen in the 1990s. These were then sold directly through DU in the US and Morris Costumes in the UK.
Well, the queen offered on the marketplace was auctioned off, as I mentioned, and I assumed that I would never be able to buy them and win an auction. So I did not care anymore. After a few months, as part of my research into the history of the lifesize Queens figures, I came across this auction again. Out of interest, I asked the seller if I could receive information on who bought it and where it was sold. The seller then tells me ... "You can have the queen". That was my opportunity! And now the Queen is in my possession. Yippiiiiiiiii.
According to my information, it is the only DU lifesize queen in Europe. All other known Queens are in Japan and the USA. Unfortunately …. Is this Queen in a very bad general condition and not complete. So I miss the arms and 3 back spikes. However, the most important parts like head, body and legs are present. So here's the question for everyone: Can anyone help with arm procurement?
The whole project is very elaborate and costly ... but I must not forget ... I have here an object that is my personal holy grail and of which very few exist worldwide at all.
I dedicate this project to my family and my father Jörg who succumbed to his long and severe cancer on the 20th of january 2018. Rest in peace and look down on me - love you so!
