Aliens vs. Predator Chess Set: Alien Queen to Predator King, Checkmate!

I have always liked both Alien and Predator – at least individually. When they were first combined, it wasn’t a stellar result, but this chess set looks pretty awesome. It will allow you to pit your own Aliens versus Predators and see who will come out on top.

Unpowered Exoskeleton: James Cameron, Eat Your Alien Heart out

I’ve always wanted to see in real life the exoskeleton that Ripley used in Aliens. It looks like it almost has arrived. Skeletonics [JP] appears to be a college-level engineering project, but it does look pretty impressive. This is what they call a “passive” exoskeleton because it doesn’t have any servomechanisms.

V Mother’s Day S02E10 (ABC)

V intertitle, via Wikipedia

I really enjoyed the original series. It was something quite astounding to watch. It was a mix between ultra-80s tackiness and just good old plain American science-fiction. I didn’t really get much at the time when it was originally broadcast nor did I watch it really, I just knew of it. I watched it a few times when I was older, when I got the DVD sets. The episodes were a standard science-fiction affair, but the concept was really good.

V tells the story of visitors from outer space coming to Earth to trade with humans. Strangely enough, they look human. In the original series, it took a while to find this out, as they were always wearing helmets for a while. It also took a while to discover that the Visitors aren’t really human. We discover this in the first episode of the new series. The Visitors have got a plan to take over Earth, only the people are too dumbfounded to react. They are in awe of the technology and the trades that the Visitors promise
