It may not muster the technological sophistication of the Kuratas rideable battle mech, but I'd still rather have Dustin Kiska's Aliens Caterpillar P-5000 Power Loader replica because Kiska built all 200 pounds of it by hand in his Albuquerque garage and Albuquerque is in New Mexico, which is part of the United States, which means if I get the Power Loader my grandma will not hassle me about owning something made in Japan. In this case, my grandma's opinion is important because she will be giving me the $1,600 I need to buy the Alien Queen eradicator. Don't worry, she'll get to ride it too. Once.

At 120" tall x 72" wide x 72" deep, the life-size hydraulic utility vehicle replica incorporates wood, Styrofoam, found objects, latex paint, spray paint, and cardboard. All joints move and hydraulics expand and contract. When asked to comment on Kiska's Caterpillar off the record, a representative from the US Colonial Marines stated, "Yeah, I'd pay to see Sigourney Weaver manhandle that thing. And she's, like, 70 now."
