NECA Releases Images of Alien 7" Scale Action Figure
05/07/2008


In space, no one can hear you scream. Audiences, however, have been screaming in shock and terror at Ridley Scott's 1979 sci-fi/horror masterpiece Alien for nearly thirty years. Today NECAonline revisits the original sci-fi nightmare as we debut composite images of the upcoming Alien 7" Scale Action Figure! Movie-accurate, standing 9" tall, and boasting over 20 points of articulation, the Alien Action Figure is the first figure that truly captures the nightmarish essence of H.R. Giger's iconic creature design. The Alien 7" Scale Action Figure will begin hitting store shelves at the end of this month, but for now take a look at our image gallery. Make sure to check back at NECAonline for the latest Alien updates and more! And coming next week: new pictures of the terrifying Alien 18" Scale Action Figure!






Diffently picking this up !!

Crap! I didn't know the 7"er was going to be out so soon! Shocked

Time to set aside a few dollars...

Thanks for the heads-up rage! Very Happy

Here's some super-secret behind-the-scenes photos from NECA's den...

18" scale painted prototype:


18" scale factory test shot:


7" scale factory test shot:


7" scale test shot VS McFarlane's figure:


Just one more time that NECA stands to absolutely trump McFarlane Toys... Cool
(Assuming their factory doesn't screw up the paint...)

Idea I truly fail to see how making something WELL, and PAINSTAKINGLY accurate, over something that is half-assed in many ways is "flogging a dead horse".

McF dropped the ball bigtime. NECA's now going in for the score. Cool

Very nice. Have they mentioned if they will be making any humans?

Was it SSC that recently released a Power Loader? I'd like to get my hands on one of those!

Word is that NECA was very hesitant to even make this ONE Alien figure.

If this sells out like the Turtle line, then MAYBE they may make more (I know a number of their sculptors are DYING to make marines), but if the sales on this figure fall flat, then that's it for any other Alien related figures form NECA.

Arrow SO BUY UP!!! Shocked

...and yes, it was SSC.

It's the Stan Winston design, from James Cameron's Aliens (1986).

NECA's "Aliens" Alien is out now!

Here's the OAFE review by Poe Ghostal.

It seems that it comes in both film-accurate brown, and "screen-accurate" blue.

Very Happy
