Long before Prometheus uncovered the origins of the Engineer and his species, the mysterious 'Space Jockey' captured the imaginations of movie-goers around the globe. First encountered by the doomed crew of the ship Nostromo, the haunting discovery of the enormous lonely star gazer remains one of the most memorable moments in the Alien franchise. Based on the iconic bio-organic industrial designs of Swiss artist H. R. Giger, Sideshow's artists have faithfully captured every detail of the fossilized sentinel, a tragic traveler who fell victim to his own lethal cargo and was forever frozen, trapped in time and space.
H.R. Giger's Iconic Statue from Prometheus
This is the original statue before we made a number of modifications to the head including a whole new paint scheme.
The Space Jockey has been recently recreated by the artisans of Sideshow Collectibles who crafted this masterpiece out of polystone and resin. Its over two feet in diameter and almost two feet tall whereby its massive size and weight will certainly draw lots of attention. Halycon recreated this statue several years ago but nothing comes close to the size and level of detail found in this statue. I was hooked the minute I saw it.
