Xenomorphs have been around us for over 30 years now. Many iterations have taken this aggressive race to become icons of Horror, Suspense, and even Adventure, and as so, caused many folks with an acute taste to want these creatures in their collections.
NECA’s made several Alien action figures, from almost all of the films in the franchise, including the most recent Aliens Vs Predator:Requiem. This year, we’re bringing even more figures, and we wanted to answer a few of your questions.
New Aliens Warrior Action Figure
From James Cameron’s “Aliens” film, we’re releasing an all new Warrior figure, with removable limbs, fully articulated, and about 9″ tall.
The 2 Colonial Marines
Aboard the warship Sulaco, Ripley is introduced to a team of Colonial Marines, one of which is Corporal Dwayne Hicks. This year, we’ll bring Hicks to life, fully articulated, at about 7″ tall, along with another Colonial Marine, which we’re not yet ready to reveal the identity of.
You can expect the Warrior Aliens to have clean and battle damaged versions and both blue and brown highlights for variety when army building your hive.
1/4 Scale Original Alien Figure
From the 1979 original Ridley Scott film, we’re preparing a release of the 1/4 scale Alien figure. This is the classic Xeno, with the clear dome. Yes – a gorgeously gross Classic Alien that stands over 22inches tall and is fully articulated.
We’ve done a Classic Alien 18-Inch Action Figure in the past, so expect improvements including the enormous figure packaged fully assembled and this Xeno will have new and improved deco over the original release from 2008.
About The Alien Queen Action Figure
Hey, we love the Queen too. She’s one of the scariest, meanest looking creatures in film history. But currently, she’s only in our wishlists. There’s a slight possibility we’ll get to her in 2013, but there’s nothing confirmed yet. One of the reasons we’re not getting to the Queen this year is because…
A Prometheus Line is Coming Up This Summer
We’re extremely excited about the upcoming film from Ridley Scott and have our hands full with a new line of figures. We’ll probably be able to show some Prometheus sculpts by the end of June.
Future For The Lines
We asked on Facebook and Google+ what fans wanted to know about the license and a lot of the questions were about its continuity, if we’re doing a full set of Colonials, etc..
Honestly, it all depends on how well sales go and what our production schedule permits. We are very excited to finally bring you Colonial Marines from Aliens and we hope to bring you a Queen in 2013.
Did anyone think they would have all of the Lost Preds in figure form?
Boy, I'd love to have that R2 Wet Bar, Carbonite Mini-Fridge, Cloud City Lamp and Jabba Bean Bag Chair! I have the money, Lucas... you just need to make these.

I like the "Alien Evolution"... but the inclusion of the Dog Burster has me hesitating a purchase, because I'm not a huge fan of the Dog Alien. Plus it's not really depicting the evolution... the Chestburster & the Dogburster are the same stage of the Alien Life Cycle. Plus I recognize the Source Images, which are mostly Toys. Mostly. I'm a Dork!
*thanks, Timothy O & Matthew S!
And some bonus fun....
