Wax Figure Auction



The Alien from Aliens, standing 8 ft. 6 in. tall with a tail that extends 5 ft. in length, will be just one of hundreds of wax figures to be auctioned off.

Look for your favorites...

I WANT that, but I would need assurances that Sigourney Weaver would NOT be included.

Chuck said...

I think the Metropolis robot would be cool. Seen the movie?

Gifted Typist said...

This reminds me of the doll company that's suing German priest who is using their Jesus dolls to creating crucifixion and sending pictures out on the web - darn, cant find link right now.

sue said...

I have got to have me one of these.

dmarks said...

I so want a life-sized Alien candle. And on the other side of the doorway, the Shrike from Hyperion.

WomanHonorThyself said...

lol..wow thats a large dude

Brooke said...

Including the Alien, which would be one helluva shock to anyone breaking into your living room, I'm going with numbers 36, 54, 65 and 92.

Caz said...

I'd need a bigger house.

It would only frighten anyone breaking in, it would frighten the life out of me every morning!

Ananda girl said...

Ooooh I want an Anthony Hopkins as Dr. Hannibal Lector to put in the corner of my living room. He'd be a great silent partner! ha

dmarks said...

For that, Ananda deserves a plate of fava beans.

Jamie Dawn said...

That site is neat. I'd like to have the bucks to buy some of the vintage horror ones such as King Kong and Frankenstein and put them in a home theater.

Jen said...

I want the Mr. T! I would put it in my bathroom, with a sign that says, "I pity the fool who doesn't flush!"

nanc said...

do they come with wicks?

i understand our power bills may be going up...

Pasadena Closet Conservative said...

OK, where do you put something like that? I suppose it could be a lawn jockey, but someone would lift it in a heartbeat!

Ananda girl said...

dmarks-- I'd like a nice chanti with those fava beans! He's like a hero... eating the free range rude!

dmarks said...

He also dines on "free-range dude"

dmarks said...

Pasadena: If that is a lawn jockey, I'd hate to see the kind of horse it would ride.

cube said...

Wow, it's nice to know that even when I'm busy, The BLOG has a life of its own. Good work everybody.

DaBlade: I wouldn't want Sigourney, but I wouldn't mind Ripley. She was my hero when I say the first film.

Chuck: Oh yeah. Good choice.

Gifted Typist: That's just weird.

Sue: Yay, something non-political that we can agree on.

dmarks: Oh that would be a heck of a sight for a darkly paneled rec room.

womanhonorthyself: It would take up more room than our Christmas tree!

Brooke: If I'm going to fantasize about having buttloads of disposable income, I'd get enough to start my own museum. Of course, Spock would be there too.

Caz: You are so right. We have this plastic roach that about 2 inches long and one I've seen a million times, yet it still has the ability to startle the heck out of me. I can't imagine what an 8 foot alien would do to my psyche!!!

cube said...

Ananda girl: Another good choice. But Hannibal could be very chatty without the mask.

dmarks: I would've added the bit about the chianti but Ananda girl stole my thunder.

Jamie Dawn: If you do, can I come watch movies there?

Jen: lol. Or put the seat down.

nanc: I'd rather sit in the dark than light a $6,000 candle. I'd settle for a cheap Glade candle scented with the esense of Alien
;-)

Pasadena CC: No way. It would get stolen in a heartbeat. Just like the cool R2D2 shaped mailboxes that were put out by the USPS a while back.

Ananda girl: lol. Free range rude.

dmarks: lol. Free range dude. Very clever.

Ananda girl said...

Truly a delightful and entertaining post! Very cool beans. Big grin.

cube said...

Ananda girl: Thank you. I loves me that positive feedback :-)

dmarks said...

Jen: "I'd rather have the "Mr T-1000". All silver, and covered in gold bling.

"I TERMINATE da fool!"

dmarks said...

Cube: "dmarks: I would've added the bit about the chianti but Ananda girl stole my thunder."

How about the beans? They usually add more thunder, not steal it.

cube said...

dmarks: You are on a roll!

C. R. Stone said...

I must have this.
