Showing Off NECA’s Dog Alien to its Fullest.

NECA makes some great figures. Their Dog Alien, for example, is arguably one of their best to date. It’s too bad NECA’s accessory display stand that comes with the figure is absolute shit. I mean it and just about everyone who owns one of these terrific figures will tell you the same thing “The figure is great! The display stand..? errrr…  not so much”.
So, I did a little hunting around and found some great little display stands made in China. They’re made of metal – so the C-clip won’t snap as easily as NECA’s flimsy excuse for a

NECA Reveals ALIENS Colonel Cameron Packaging.

NECA have shared with us all the packaging for their upcoming Colonial Cameron figure as this week’s #facehuggerfriday reveal.  The clam shell packaging is the standard arrangement we see a lot of NECA’s stuff distributed. Colonel Cameron bears the actual likeness of ALIENS Director, James Cameron.  To my knowledge this item will be out soon.

I guess some fanboys might get all gooey about having the Director of ALIENS dressed up in colonial marine garb and carrying a clapper board but it’s not my idea of a ‘love doll’.  Gimme Meredith Vickers any day.  Hubba hubba!  Continue reading

First Glimpse at NECA’s Upcoming Snake Alien.

NECA’s #Facehugger Friday has returned after a 2 week hiatus and with it comes this work in progress image of one of their upcoming Alien figures.

This exquisitely detailed item looks to be the back of NECA’s interpretation of Kenner’s Snake Alien and will be part of their 13th series of ALIEN action figures, also focusing on a trio of items inspired by old Kenner toys.  It will be a while before this series of figures hits store shelves as no release announcement date has been made yet.

WARNING: Choking Hazard.

This interesting juxtaposition  was pointed out to me sometime back on Facebook.  I forget who called it to my attention but it’s a great sample of why some toys shouldn’t be removed from their packaging.

Nonetheless, this is NECA’s ALIEN Series 3 Kane with facehugger attached; and is badged with the most appropriate use of this Warning on an action figure I’ve ever seen.

Hadley’s Hope ALIENS 2 Pack Soon.

TOYARK have posted a review of the upcoming NECA Hadley’s Hope 2 pack featuring Weyland Yutani representative, Carter Burke, and a concept Alien that serves as a bridge between the creature seen in the 1st movie and those that appear in the 2nd.  The new domed ALIENS warrior figure looks spectacular while the Burke item appears to be a near perfect likeness of actor, Paul Reiser.  I’m looking forward to this release.

Head over to TOYARK to read their review and check out their gallery of images for this pair of slimy bad guys.   NECA’s Hadley’s Hope 2 pack is expected to be released in a few weeks, in October.

Razor Claws Box Art Revealed.

NECA have revealed the lurid full colour box art for the Razor Claws Alien action figure.

This package design looks like it will have a window that wraps around the front to  the top of the box.  This does look kind of nice.  It is one of six figures in their upcoming ALIEN vs PREDATOR Arcade figure line up, believed to be released later this year.  Original posted on #facehuggerfriday

NECA Burke and ALIEN Release Soon.

As part of their regular weekly twitter announcements, NECA have release a fine image of their upcoming Carter J. Burke and Xenomorph Warrior in their packaging for #FacehuggerFriday.

Figures of Burke are uncommon at best and this is the first time he has appeared in NECA’s extensively line up, and officially supporting the likeness of actor Paul Reiser.  The Alien itself is a variant of the familiar Xenomorph we see in ALIENS with a translucent carapace added to its head.  To my knowledge, this is the first time a domed ‘Cameralien’ has been produced by any company.

Looking forward to seeing these hit shelves soon as implied by NECA’s recent tweet.

Good old NECA, getting back in to regular postings of upcoming adult toys based on slimy shit from space.  Today, as part of their Facehugger Friday promotional strategy, they have posted some work in progress shots of the ‘Arachnoid’ Alien that will be part of the ALIENS vs PREDATOR Arcade video game figures set.

I guess we can expect more ‘behind the scenes’ shots of these figures in the upcoming weeks.  More images after the break. Continue reading
