An alien warrior special effects tail from James Cameron's sci-fi sequel Aliens. The terrifying Xenomorphs faced Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) and the marines on LV-426 during an ill-fated rescue mission.

The tail is made from polyfoam that has been moulded into a sequence of vertebrae flowing from large to small, decorated in a shade of brown and taking the classic 'bio-machine' shape, as imagined by artist H.R. Giger. Threaded through the entire length, is a thick steel wire cord, which would have allowed the tail to support the weight of a performer for a special effect. There are small cracks, flaking paint and some small missing chunks from extensive production use. The cable has developed a curved 'S' shape through storage and rests in this position naturally. Dimensions: 132 cm x 22 cm x 16 cm (52'' x 8 1/2'' x 6 1/4'') (source: http://www.icollector.com/ALIENS-1986-Alien-Warrior-Special-Effects-Tail_i27918848)
