The Horizon kit from the 90's is by far the best. Vinyl, 12" tall, in a classic stalking pose. If you're in the mood for something bigger, our own Kreature Kid did a flawless 16" resin now available on the Kit Kong website. I know you have your heart set on a 1/6 scale, but check out the pics anyway (you might change your mind).

I'll also go with the Horizon kit as the best, followed closely by the PFF by Sideshow.

Kit Kong. It's on their website under "bargain basement". It's $94 but well worth it.

Wolfman66 I hope you recover quickly, but these kits are great!!
Little by little I'm picking up the Creature kits. Gets a little expensive and takes up space.
Would like to see tha 1/4 scale when you are done.

Nobody likes the Dark Horse Kit by Chris Walas(special effects guy for the Fly)? Its one of my favorites.  Pic from Don Capone's monsters models site.

I love my DH/Walas Creech -- but, yes, it's delicate -- and after several moves, I need to make a few repairs on mine.  Gorgeous build-up in that pic!

I've got Creature on my mind since the movie aired on TV just last night. 'Thought I'd cast my rather belated vote for the Horizon GILLMAN >

I don't even collect model kits that often but this figure got a WOW at first sight >

I like the Laguna one:

(https://hosting.photobucket.com/images/g434/Balticprince/Creature_Girl.jpg)

Her breasts have a natural drop and thus look real.

 ;)

Too many present day artists/sculptures render breasts that sit/are placed far too high and look like volleyballs jutting out from a woman's chest. In other words like implants. Maybe the models these artists use are implanted themselves, but that's no excuse not to draw/sculpt breasts that look real instead of like fakes.
