    I wasn't originally interested in Alien figures at all.  It was going to be Aliens all the way.

    But seeing as Jones is only available with an Alien version of Ripley, I am considering picking up a big chap to go with her.  Now to decide on a Ripley... I'm leaning towards the space suit version, but not totally decided.

    Why no powerloader at SDCC I wonder.

    I generally don't find human figure visually appealing enough to invest in, but I might pick up a Ripley figure at some point, if the price is right and I have some extra cash. I'm just hoping for the day we get some Kenner tribute Aliens figures.

    Yummy, these Ripley figures look great ! Hope Sigourney will give her likeness for those prototypes.

    Honestly, I don't care about the cat. It's not a great piece, but if it's part of the package, swell, it will be displayed hiding behind Ripley's legs  ::).

    I think I may have to go out on a limb and for once say the Ripley likeness on the NECA out shines the Hot Toys version (also at comic con.)

    And yes ... Jonesy. I've seen better looking plastic house cats in hobby shops and toy stores.  :-\
  5. TITANOSAUR
    even as a Godzilla fan I'm not too keen on their godzilla figures. the '94 version looks fine, but their '84 looks wrong.

    Oh and yes I agree on the head sculpt for Ripley and Kane. you can give Ripley a busty body but so long as her head looks like Miss Weaver you ain't got a Ripley. I just hope she scales well with the Marines and 9" aliens.
  6. Xenomrph
    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh shit.

    The headsculpt will absolutely make or break that Ripley figure. I hope they don't f**k it up like they did with both Michael Biehn figures (Hicks, and Kyle Reese).

    Sorry about that i should have said 7th of november. I wouldnt relay on zavvis dates as they change them all the time i have had the alien series 3 on order for 2 months and they have changed there dates at least 4 times and they have the Predator computer figure down for september.

    I totally agree with you on this, it's a common fact with NECA.
    Hopefully, huge items' prototypes are built on scale (power loader was too for instance), so the only thing that may differ with the queen will be the paint.


    Quite the same they do with the 7" figures : prototypes are made way bigger, unveiled and sold on pre-order like this, THEN scaled down and mass produced. So when you pay, you don't know what you're going to get.
    That's why I didn't pre-order the Series 3, I'm waiting to see how Bishop and Kane look like on 7" (Runner alien is already on scale).
    And then buy the guy and the android. Or not.

    Some new pics I found (on Ebay), don't recall if they've been already posted or if they are official pics, but this is on pre-order saying "NECA Deluxe queen". So... :)

    Yet teeth look far better on these ones and show some kind of transparency, maybe the background / light was responsible for the bad look on the diorama ones ?
    Still I'm not keen on the global paintjob, with all this brown.

    Judge by yourselves fellas ;).

    well let's not forget guys, the mass produced product is gonna look WAY diffrent then this. Maybe we should bring in some screen caps of the alien queen and compair?

    I was looking at my McFarlane queen today, which has transparent teeth, and because of the nature of the teeth she doesn't look as menacing from front on (because the darkness behind the teeth means they effectively look black).

    Maybe painted teeth won't be all that bad.

    So? What do you guys think the odds of a Kenner Line for aliens coming out? I would love to see a Gorilla Alien!

    I wouldn't be surprised if they did that, would bring some nice variety

    This would be my favorite (Mantis-Alien)...If they also use some sort of translucent plastic

    http://www.16bit.com/fotd/fotd-pics/0397-aliens-Mantis.jpg

    Also Flying Alien Queen, Panther Alien and the almighty Killer Crab Alien!!!  ;D would be nice, in fact all of them would be nice!  :)
    Funny, i have all of those in their original form

    I believe they already stated that they're planning on doing Kenner-inspired figures.

    EDIT: Also, guys. This probably isn't the final product. Not to mention these photos probably don't do the figure justice.

    Hey guys, thought i give a little update :P

    Alien Surgery was successful, it's not that bad anymore :)

    Awesome fix, are the joints still stiff on your figure?

    Nope, the joints were't much of an issue :)

    However the removable part on the back is pretty loose and the inner mouth i couldnt get out at first so i had to use a knife to get it out and now it works (also pretty loose lol)

    All that didn't really bother me but that the dome was way off was a big bummer  :(
    The back part of the dome is still off, i could try to fix that as well i guess but i think i leave it for now, im glad i was able to fix it!
    Some hot water first and then...see the picture  :)
  16. Otter
    Okay, so I went back and had a look at the pictures again after enlarging them.  It does appear that they are painted, but for painted teeth they look awesome.  Will be keen to see what she comes out of the factory looking like.

    But I will be getting her based on the scale and sculpt alone, regardless.
  17. Otter
    How do we know the teeth aren't translucent?

    All the images I have seen, I figured they were.  Could it be the lighting that makes the teeth look otherwise?  Have we had any kind of confirmation either way?

    I dont understand why some complain about something like a paint job.If the qc is good I am happy.Aliens fans are lucky to get new figures like the Queen.Just be happy we get something like this.I am a huge fan of Aliens. so any thing Aliens is cool for me
    I'm not saying that people shoud not buy this figure, nor that the paintjob is awful. Like I said, sculpt is awesome, this is a badass figure, BUT something still bothers me in the paintjob, so I don't have a crush for it. I can't help it :).

    The most notable example is the queen's teeth : if you remember the movie they have to be transluscent, or at least glossy / silver painted like almost every Alien figure / statue, anything that shines, but not this flat beige...
    I showed the pictures to a friend of mine which isn't an Alien fan, he told me "uh, aren't the teeth supposed to be transparent ?".
    This is one of the most iconic Queen's features, and I'm focused on it.


    "Anything Alien" is cool, yes, I don't deny it, but anything Alien isn't worth buying for everyone (like me), although I'm feeling glad for everyone pleased with these pictures ;). I've got plenty of Alien figures at home and little room, so if something bothers me when I look at this huge queen, I'm gonna save room / money for other ones. There's no big deal saying so, man !


    EDIT : talking about the price, retrailers in Europe already sell it on preorder for 130€, approx 150$.

    That was the first thing I noticed too. I'm still keeping positive about the paint job though because I remember the pictures of the blue and brown xenos that they used for display as having a lot more color on them than what I actually ended up getting. It was like they toned down the amount of brown or blue dry brush(whatever they do at the factories). I definitely agree with you though that her teeth are one of her most memorable attributes and it sucks if they aren't translucent at all.
  19. Zenstoren
    Aww, it's a shame that the Queen doesn't interest you Vark =/ However, you do seem like the sort of guy who would possess the skills required to repaint the figure?

    Personally I love it. Sure the absence of the iconic translucent teeth is a bit disappointing, but I'll still be picking this figure up if I have the funds.

    Yeah, so true. I'll be picking her up regardless of the paint really. I just hope they up the QC for her :) I think once we see pics of her in sdcc she will look better because the lighting wont be quite as intense as these NECA photos are.
    The reason is that we gave them a lifetime, and their painters are better than this, and I have no idea why they chose this specific paint job, because she never apears this way before. Many companies are guilty for this, except for McFarlane.
