Like lightsabers and time-travelling DeLoreans, the Caterpillar P-5000 Powered Work Loader — or Power Loader for short — in Aliens is one of those props that ended up being the real star of the movie. Who wouldn't be excited to come to work every day if it involved piloting a robotic exoskeleton? So hats off to Hollywood Collectibles for creating a near perfect miniature version of the Power Loader for us all to drool over.
Before you excitedly whip out your credit cards let's get the bad news out of the way first. This 33-inch tall, 25-inch wide masterpiece is being limited to just 1000 pieces, and each one comes with a $US1200 price tag. Hollywood Collectibles hasn't skimped on the details, and they're making collectors pay dearly for it. But looking at all the wiring, cables and miniature hydraulics, your kids will probably understand why they can no longer go to university. [Hollywood Collectibles via Toyark]
