XENOMORPH EGG SET
"New from Weyland-Yutani, these eggs are sourced directly from LV-426, where Xenomorphs are allowed to roam freely without being confined to cramped cages. Buy cage-free and support our efforts to study and protect this gentle, misunderstood species." From the terrifying Alien movie series, this set includes 6 Xenomorph eggs and 3 facehuggers with bendable tails. They make great diorama pieces, since they're perfectly in scale with the line of 7" figures – and for collectors, the full-color egg carton is designed to be eminently display-worthy. $22.99
