Sega Replacing Broken Alien Facehuggers

Unable to adapt to harsh shipping conditions, many of the Alien Facehuggers included in the Hunter Edition of Aliens Vs Predator have had their tails snap off. Sega's bio-engineers are on the case.

It's sad that one of the heartiest species in the known galaxy should succumb to something as trifling as being shipped to retail, but hey, in War of the Worlds the aliens died from the common cold. Perhaps we should have tried shipping them. The shipping process apparently killed many of the Alien Facehugger models packaged inside the more expensive edition of Sega's new AvP title, to the point where Sega has set up a web page to help get healthy Facehuggers into the hands of its customers.

Simply visit Sega's Facehugger Collectible Replacements page, fill out a form, which includes a space for the Hunter Edition-exclusive downloadable content voucher code for verification, and Sega will be in touch with instructions on how to score an intact Facehugger.

You know, one that can better latch onto your neck in order to have disgusting Alien sex with your face. And you paid extra for that.

    Are there any quaint chestbursting stories this morning-after? Or was everyone put off by the broken tail and told Facehugger they had to get up early...

    im happy with mine but its not exactly a 'replica' now is it, its about half the size of a life size facehugger. still makes for a good facebook profile photo though :)

    I haven't got my copy yet, but... wait... "snapped off"? So the whole thing is like, solid and unmovable? Why did I even bother buying it then?!

      Nevermind, watched an unboxing on youtube. It's pretty small but at least it's flexible.

    at least you guys got to play yours :( i got home with it, and after much anticipated excitement (and a little tunnel vision) i inserted the disc into my PC for installation where a nice message appeared on screen: 'You need to put this disc into an XBOX 360 for play'. ahh, the joys of having to return once again in person to the store for my correct package. -thanks EB.

    First thing I did when I got home with this was try to put it over my face. Realising it was too small, i latched it onto a tweety plush toy instead =D

    Currently its perched menacingly on the corner of my tv ^_^

    One of the best collectors editions i've ever bought. Love the facehugger, so much more then i was hoping!

    Can't see how so many broke though, mine was in quite solid packaging, no chance that the tail would have snapped
