    Yep, sadly that was it, Maxx with the Freddy suit box set is all we saw.

    I like the bulky, clunky look of the figure (a necessity as it is a costume) it makes it looks quite different from other Alien "Big Chap" figures.

    Thanks everyone. I collect Alien prototype toys, and this is one that I absolutely love. I love the story behind him. And I love his look. I got to know Mel quite well also, which makes me appreciate the piece, and the unproduced line, as a whole, that much more. He's an incredible gentleman.

    WOW! I don't know Mel but his stuff is amazing!!!!!!! I remember my boss coming back from Toyfair and talking about his awesome Max FX presentation I was really excited and had planned on buying it all. Things didn't go that way but love that the prototypes are safe and sound! The Creature is my all time fave!!! Congrats on such a wonderful piece of art and history! I like the display too!

    I should probably include Mel's incredible website, explaining about the line. All the characters were pretty awesome : )

    The video has a big mistake in the first few moments. He says they were an 8" line, when they were the body size one up from that. They were on the 9 1/2" body. Eight inches would have been better for customs!

    Yup, you are correct. Matchbox made that decision. If Mel would have had his way, they would have been on the 11" GI Joe bodies.
