Making of the Power Loader DioramaSunday, June 28, 2009 at 3:45pm
Due to licensing issues with Sigourney Weaver’s likeness rights, we were unable to use Weaver’s portrait for Ripley in the Power Loader Diorama. This was, of course, disappointing to us, but we feel we managed to create a youthful portrait that best captures the facial emotion of the female lead battling the universe’s top adversary, the Queen Alien. The real star of this project, however, is the Power Loader itself. The proximity display scene that the loader and Queen Alien create is the statement of machine VS biological menace, a titanic battle that is ongoing and extremely relevant. This struggle is one that is ever-present and will continue to be so, and these two dioramas together really capture that clash. We’re really proud of this composition and all the hard work done literally by a host of developers from all points on the globe, and we think that collectors will really appreciate the dynamic interaction of these two dioramas.
