I mean, unless you just wanted to hear what someone closer to you has to say about them. I can give my two cents, but a detailed review...my camera sucks and I'm not much of a writer.
I was cruising the Chan, and someone has posted that Hiya is getting some trouble with the Predator license from The Mouse.
In my opinion and experience, I've found these to be highly inferior to the Neca Alien line.
What's unfair is how brittle and fragile these are compared to the Neca ones for close to the same price. I'd rather pay a little more and get the Neca ones which are a lot more durable, have better paint applications, and much more accurate head sculpts. Those are my biggest gripes with this line.That is kinda unfair considering HIYA is 1/18th scale and then NECA at 1/10th scale. Though tbh NECA are Not the greatest either. TOYS man, No One produces TOYS to what We truly expect. I think we will Never see anyone produce Toys to our personal standard or expectations.
They are Always going to be the Base to customise from to improve or worse case rob parts from to make our Own.
If you think about it the ONLY 1/18th ALIENS has been the Hot Toys Snap Kits. Great as they were they too had fragile issues.
Unless of course you go via MJ and Joe bodies. Again your not going to get quite the Colonial Marine you wanted from the film.
Personally I don't mind the HIYA marines, removable armour. Posable. A different set of BDU camo. My main beef is the TINY useless helmets.
