NECA confirm Newt and Ripley "Rescuing Newt" special edition pack


NECA have confirmed that their Newt figure, previously a limited SDCC exclusive, will get a second wider reaching release as part of the 30th Anniversary "Rescuing Newt" box set.

"Rescuing Newt 30th Anniversary 2 pack. New Ripley head, deluxe packaging, more. Full details before noon today" - Randy Falk (NECA) via Twitter

The set will include the 1986 Aliens Ripley, who will have a revised head sculpt. It will be presented in a window box similar to the ones used for NECA's Ultimate line. Looking at the images released so far it appears that Newt's doll Casey and the Marine Helmet that were packed with the SDCC version will not be included. What is included is a new "fire"effect for the Flame unit. The set will start shipping in November 2016 - watch out for pre-orders going up very soon.

"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! Starts shipping out to retailers November 2016!"
