Lanard's quality is...questionable. It's not not quite dollar store bad. There's technically nothing wrong with it. But it feels cheap.
They look and feel very generic. Even though there's nothing wrong with their origibal designs, they still look and feel generic. This carries over to their licenses like Aliens, Kong, and Jumanji. (The Jumanji toys don't even ping as licensed action figures. They look and feel like some generic animal toys you'd see in a zoo gift shop)
Picked up one of the packs from Smyths yesterday. For the price, it's decent value for money. The human figure is not great, but passable. The facehugger does not launch from the egg, which is disappointing, but there you go.
The Alien itself is fun. No jaw articulation or neck tilt, which is the only problem. No elbow articulation either, but that's balanced out by shoulders and wrists allowing for a lot of expression.
Also has waist/ab-crunch, which is a surprise. Hip articulation is restricted but okay, knees bend and the ankles are on ball joints. And the tail rotates - ball joint would have been better, but there you go. So not the best articulation ever, but what's there actually works really well together. As I say, feels worth what I paid. Which you can't always say...
