NECA have shared more details about their 40th Anniversary Alien line including a look at the packaging.
The Alien 40th Anniversary collection is coming . 3 series of 3 figures each. Some amazing figure debuts! New accessories! Printed facial deco! Special packaging! Limited editions!!Let’s hear you scream! #facehuggerfriday
We now know that the collection will be 3 wave of 3 figures, 9 in total. Randy Falk is talking about the most comprehensive collection of Alien 1979 action figures.
The figures are packed in window boxes and not the usual clamshell. The box art is based on the original Kenner artwork and looks very striking.
"Most were planned for last May but then certain negotiations took time and some things fell into place that were previously not possible so it was worth waiting to deliver the most comprehensive ALIEN collection ever made"
If we look at the box art we can see figure names down the side which include the revised Ripley we saw a few weeks back, there is also a repack of the Prototype Albino Alien Big Chap and Dallas in Spacesuit. Like all human figures in the line we should see photo print technology on Ripley and Dallas.
We've also seen prototypes for Brett and Parker, with Brett's production figure used in the tweet alongside the Ultimate Big Chap Alien already announced. That leaves 3 slots left and we believe that Kane - with a likeness of John Hurt - is one of them based on comments made by Randy Falk. Dare we also hope, if this is the comprehensive collection, that one of the others is Ash?
The first wave is due to land between April and May. We should see more at New York Toy Fair.
