It really is amazing to see the iconic horror villain up close, and to scale, and admire all its alien detail.

Using H.R. Giger's amazing Alien creature design as a starting point, James Cameron was responsible for the initial Alien Queen design concept and collaborated with special effects artists Stan Winston to bring the finished Xenomorph Queen to the big screen in the 1986 sequel.

The Queen is significantly larger and stronger than the warrior and drone Aliens, around 4.5 meters (15 ft) tall, with two pairs of arms.

At the 1987 Annual Academy Awards, Aliens won the Oscar for Best Visual Effects.
