This is a 3D printed Grey Alien (AKA Alien Greys, Grays, Roswell Greys, Zeta Reticulans, Viinnadorians) polished vinyl figurine. He will come with painted black eyes unless you tell me to leave it off in your comment. He can be re-posed with a little bit of heat from a blow dryer or heat-gun to close his grip on objects or change positions. He stands 6 inches tall, 2.75" wide, and 2.75" deep.
My work can be seen on the set of Warner Brother's television series “Roswell” & soon “Manifest”! I recently granted WBTV permission to use this alien as set art in these 2 television series. It received about 30 seconds of front-and-center screen time on episode 7 of "Manifest".
These aliens have been seen throughout popular culture in books and movies and represents what we mostly believe aliens to look like.
Books: Communion, Dream Catcher, Song of the Greys
Movies: Close Encounters, Dark Skies, Independence Day

"Grey aliens, also referred to as "Alien Greys", "Greys", "Grays", "Roswell Greys", "Zeta Reticulans", and "Viinnadorians" are supposed extraterrestrial beings whose existence is discussed in ufological, paranormal, and New Age communities, and who are named for their unique skin color. Forty-three percent of all reported alien encounters in the United States describe Grey aliens. Such claims vary in every respect including their nature, origins (ETs, extradimensionals, time travelers, or machines), moral dispositions, intentions, and physical appearances (even varying in their eponymous skin color). A composite description derived from overlap in claims would have Greys as small-bodied sexless beings with smooth grey-colored skin, enlarged hairless head and large black eyes. The origin of the idea of the Grey is commonly associated with the Barney and Betty Hill abduction claim which took place in 1961, although skeptics see precursors in science fiction and earlier paranormal claims. The Grey aliens are also famous from earlier depictions of the Roswell UFO incident from 1947."

This Grey is made of PVB, a 3D print-able vinyl variant that dissolves in alcohol, giving the model a nice glazed finish. It almost looks like it has been cast in ceramic and given a clear glaze.
This is a 3D printed product, so there may be minor defects (rough edges, bumps, etc). I have spent months building my own machines to exact specifications for accuracy and surface quality, and I scrutinize every model very closely. I use only the highest quality filament to ensure colors are vibrant and defects are kept to an absolute minimum for both your item and my machine.
Every item in my shop is test printed and checked for not only aesthetics, but also the intended use. All of my items I list I personally test to ensure they meet my stringent standards. This item is printed in PVB, a vinyl typically used in car windshield safety coverings but has been developed for 3D printing for it's ability to be smoothed with isopropyl alcohol. While it is strong and lightweight, it will dissolve in alcohol and possibly discolor when submerged for long periods in water.
If I'm not happy with it, it doesn’t ship. You will get my very best work, which you will find is a cut above the rest!
