20th Century Fox have release full details of Alien Day, which will be a Social Media Fan event taking place on the 26th of April 2016 (a nod to LV-426).
As part of Aliens Day a number of key retailers will be unveiling product. And for Action Figure collectors the big news is that NECA will be releasing figures from Vasquez and Newt.
Quoted via Figures.com
"NECA announces the first ever Lieutenant Vasquez (Jenette Goldstein) and Newt (Carrie Henn) figure; as well as the release of a Kenner toy-Inspired Ellen Ripley figure"
Since the original press release (link below) NECA have been busy on Twitter - teasing the following picture of Newt and Casey, her dolls head. They have also confirmed that the figures won't be available in April, we would therefore expect them to be revealed on #AlienDay426 and potentially pre-orders going live. NECA have also confirmed an international release, so fully available to UK fans.
EDIT (2nd April) : Newt and Vasquez will be a July/August 2016 release.
Will be interesting to see what Kenner version of Ripley they will reproduce.... perhaps an homage to the one we have pictured (below) with purple shirt
