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.

REVIEWED: NECA Neomorph Action Figure.

I’ve been consciously avoiding reviewing any NECA figures until the ALIEN covenant stuff had been released.  Well, now this range of figures has reached Australian shores and I’ll be exploring these items in detail during the next month or so.

Think of it as Wabbit NECA Season, Dear Elmer.

So let’s get stuck into these things, shall we?  First up is the grisly little bastard known as the Neomorph.  Go ahead.  Read all about my impressions of this little darlin’.  I quite like it.  I’ll be tackling NECA’s iteration of David’s Xenomorph next week, too, so keep an eye out for that one.
