This is primarily intended to be about the board game, more precisely, the miniatures made for it... but as I am searching to get them for a friend, I was wondering whether the following is a complete list of the products (I don't have product codes) for the minis and what they're be expected to fetch. My understanding is that the Aliens themselves are much pricier. Also, consider this a classified ad, if the price is right.

Alien Warrior Boxed Set
Alien Warrior Boxed Set #2
Alien Queen Box Set
Power Loaded Box Set
Colonial Marines Box Set #1
Colonial Marines Box Set #2

If anyone knows of any expansions for the RPG, I'd appreciate knowing that too.

That list looks mostly complete as far as the boxed sets are concerned - but I see that it does not include The Colonists' Last Stand boxed set, and there were a number of blister packs available as well.

Complete boxed sets usually fetch from $30 to $60. I have seen them go for less from time to time, but not that often. If you want to see some prices, check out my backlog of Lead Market Reports and peruse the Leading Edge Games entries:

Other than the pics on the page, I've never seen a LE dropship mini before:  was it definitely produced, and, more importantly, is it in scale for the minis? :D  miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/i ... e_Games%29:

My impression is that the Alien Queen and the Powerloader boxed sets go for more---$50-$90-ish (and more if in shrink) and that most of the Aliens and Colonial Marines boxed sets sell for $40-50 per box if they're complete.  I don't track as thoroughly as Tom does, though, so take my impressions with a grain of salt ;)

This old post seems to imply the Drophsip was made. 1/72 scale, apparently, all lead. Also apparently very rare.

Grodog had a dropship model of some kind at NTX I believe.  It looked a little small in my opinion, and I suspect it was plastic, but it was still cool as all get out.   8)


Truth is worth finding and life is too short to work for money.

My dropship is the Halcyon plastic model, definitely not the LE metal one.  I assume that the Halcyon model is probably bigger based on comparing the pics, but how a 1/72 scale ship is supposed to relate to a 25mm scale mini (vs. the reality of the 1/72 model not being quite large enough) is beyond my ability to juggle math today.

This looks like fun, too, btw:  Halcyon USCM Dropship WIP Page 1

Now THAT is what I love about model/miniature enthusiasts!

1/72 = 22.4mm, so 1/64 = 25mm (at least according to the handy scale guide found here: BigLee's Miniature Adventures: Scale Guide)

Ouch! Looks like the dropship is going to be tough (or at least expensive) to acquire.

There's an APC up at the moment, but it's already topped $150:

So it appears the market for the Dropship may have softened a bit, which is great news for anyone looking to pick one up.

I won this Dropship auction this morning for $168.50 (Happy Thanksgiving to me!):

And for reference, here's the last one that sold previous to mine ($155.02):

The same seller I got my Dropship from also had an APC, which was almost as expensive as the Dropship ($160.50):

I've been keeping an eye out for one as well, but still don't want to spend $150+ for it (or at least I don't yet, we'll see.... ;) ).

A couple more dropships on the rather expensive side are currently listed ($600 and $450 respectively):
