USCM Sgt. Apone

Who could forget the 1986 movie “Aliens” featuring Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) and her Colonial Marines. One of those marine is Sgt. Apone

Buying a Hot Toys Alien USCM figure nowadays will cost you a fortune aside from it being a rare find item. So i ended up doing my own version and what luck the nude body/head i get to use is an original Hot Toys Sgt. Apone (thanks ebay), check out the Fox copyright label printed on the leg.

 

The sculpt is ok (acceptable?), there’s a slight similarities to the real Al Matthews who played Sgt Apone in the movie. The sculpt is not that good compared to quality now. Hot toys doing a head re-sculpt of all their Hot Toys Alien USCM figures would be awesome!

BDU – Toy soldier Vietnam era woodland / Cap – modern British dpm cap from twisting toys(?) / Shirt – Red long sleeve turtle neck shirt from 21st century toys / Shoes – DID WWII German mountain boots / Dropleg – Molle panel from Hot Toys.

Body armor – Hot Toys USCM Drake armor vest / NVG – Hot Toys Night Vision goggles / Weapon – Hot Toys Appleseed Tereus rifle / Sidearm – 2 Robocop pistol with Hot Toys Blade II shoulder holster / Knife – Hot Toys Predator Billy Machete

All right, sweethearts, what are you waiting for? Breakfast in bed? Another glorious day in the Corps! A day in the Marine Corps is like a day on the farm. Every meal’s a banquet! Every paycheck a fortune! Every formation a parade! I LOVE the Corps!” – Sgt. Apone

I chance upon a blog about the whereabouts of all the characters/cast of the Aliens movie, an interesting read check it out:
