Happy Alien Day!
The official Fox iteration of Alien Day, taking place on April 26, has its origins in a fan event based in New York City. The first unofficial “Aliens Day" was organised by Aliens fan Alaric Hahn of Brooklyn, New York for April 26, 2015. In February the following year, a promotional image for Hahn’s 2016 event was shared by NECA toys on Twitter to much popularity, possibly indicating the fan event was the impetus for 20th Century Fox to adopt the day officially.
Arcade Appearance 7″ Scale Action Figures
Introducing a new collection inspired by the classic 1994 arcade game that actually predates the movie! The Aliens Assortment includes three Alien adversaries from the game: Razor Claws, Chrysalis and Arachnoid make their action figure debut with paint deco that re-creates the look of the arcade game. The figures utilize the new super-poseable Ultimate body, with over 30 points of articulation and bendable tail. Approximately 9″ tall. Window box packaging.
Alien Space Jockey Fossil Replica
Long before Prometheus uncovered the origins of the Engineer and his species, the mysterious ‘Space Jockey’ captured the imaginations of movie-goers around the globe. First encountered by the doomed crew of the ship Nostromo, the haunting discovery of the enormous lonely star gazer remains one of the most memorable moments in the Alien franchise. It’s perfectly in scale with our line of 7” figures, which means that it’s appropriately massive: two feet long, over 18” tall, and the circular base is 18” in diameter!
Hadley’s Hope 7" Action Figure Set
The set includes the first-ever Carter Burke with the likeness of Paul Reiser, a special edition Concept Aliens Warrior with Dome, and a replica of the population sign for Hadley’s Hope. Weyland-Yutani company man Carter Burke makes his action figure debut in this set! He stands approximately 7” tall, has over 25 points of articulation and features the likeness of Paul Reiser. The Concept Warrior is based on James Cameron’s original concept for the Alien, which he envisioned with a semi-transparent dome and in a darker color scheme. (This was changed early in production.) It utilizes the new “Ultimate” Alien body, which has many upgrades, including added articulation and increased range of motion in upper torso and neck, plus a re-engineered tail assembly which provides an additional swivel as well as having a bendable portion. The figure stands over 9” tall and has over 30 points of articulation. The Hadley’s Hope population sign measures approximately 6 x 6 inches and will make a perfect diorama element. Clamshell packaging.
“Rescuing Newt” Ripley & Next Deluxe Figure Pack
Continuing the Aliens 30th anniversary celebration, NECA presents a special edition action figure 2-pack that recreates the movie’s classic poster! That iconic image of Ripley rescuing Newt appears on the front flap of the deluxe packaging; open the flap and the figures are posed in the box just as they appear on the poster. Ripley stands approximately 7” tall and features a new head sculpt and new deco, both exclusive to this set. She comes with a flamethrower accessory that has a special “fire effect” attachment. Newt stands approximately 5” tall. Both feature authorized likenesses and have over 25 points of articulation for dramatic poses. A great display piece both in and out of the box!
