The Alien 3 monster pack from NECA has been in the works for a while now, and up to this week we knew the contents included the juvenile dog alien (Bambi Runner) and the concept figures of the Queen Facehugger and Queen Chestburster which were planned, but never made it to the final cut.
The confirmation of the set started when NECA changed their Twitter profile picture to this image of a new figure of Spike the dog from Alien 3.
Spike was the pet of inmate Murphy in the original theatrical release and is attacked and impregnated by a Facehugger, hence the injury to his face. The Alien 3 Dog Alien would later emerge from Spike. The dog was replaced in future direct cuts with the original plan of an Ox type creature.
This follow up gallery confirms Spike, and an alternate head, as part of the Alien 3 creature pack. Spike has a before and after head option with the second showing the signs of his attack at the hands of the facehugger. Eagle eyed fans noticed an obvious re-use here from the Devil Dogs included in a recent Nightmare on Elm Street Set.
The set, now confirmed as including four figures and an alternative head for Spike is due for a May 2019 release.
