NECA's 5th and penultimate San Diego Comic Con 2019 Exclusive reveal was the widely expected Superman vs Alien 2-pack. These figures had been first shown at the 2017 New York Toy Fair, but had been plagued with licencing issues and NECA have been limited to a small release as a convention exclusive.
The set is based on the 1995 comic mini-series from DC and Dark Horse and includes a brand new 7 inch comic book Superman figure. Superman comes with neutral and angry head options as well as two clip on laser vision FX pieces. His cape is soft goods and to achieve a flying pose there are swap out hands from fists to flat palms. The Alien looks to be using the upcoming Alien Resurrection sculpt, with variant colouring.
As with all of NECA's SDCC 2019 exclusives a pre-order system will be in place across June 5th through 7th, with limited amounts of all exclusives up for pre-order each day for delivery after SDCC 2019. This is restricted to US collectors only and for this set it has to be purchased as a package with the Batman vs Predator set for $120. A small quantity will then be on sale at the NECA booth at SDCC where fans can purchase sets separately. For UK and Worldwide collectors, the only avenue will be hitting up the secondary market.
