Alien (1979)

We've been here a few times before but not necessarily to inspect the content of the spaceship Nostromo's lockers and cupboards.  Ignore the bird in her undies gripping the big chopper and take a look at those emergency spacesuits.
That's the one on the right.  Looks familiar doesn't it and on this occasion its actually being a proper spacesuit
Here it is again, variation on a theme.
and here on the left a few times more

  3. In case you missed it Polar Lights released a resin model kit of Kane in his space suit 1/9th scale.

    1. That's very nice. And I was unaware of the release so thanks. I've been pondering over the Neca action figures, which also look very good for the size, price and detail. However the little bit of space on the book shelf has a Planet of the Apes Gorilla soldier thing going on at the moment.
