NECA Aliens Series 5 Features Ripley, Bishop, Xeno Warriors

Yesterday NECA posted up their official images for the upcoming NECA Aliens Series 5. To be released in August 2015, Series 5 will be the second time that NECA has released a figure of Ripley, this time from James Cameron’s Aliens. Series 5 also includes half of Bishop and singles of Alien Warriors from the Genocide 2-pack:

“Series 5 in our best-selling Alien action figure collection includes Lt. Ellen Ripley, Bishop (Queen Attack) and black and red versions of the Xenomorph Warriors from Aliens: Genocide.

Ripley features the likeness of Sigourney Weaver and comes with bandolier accessory plus the makeshift flamethrower/pulse rifle hybrid she jury-rigs to battle the Queen. Bishop features the likeness of Lance Henriksen and is based on the android’s appearance after the Alien Queen’s attack. He comes with an open Xenomorph egg and facehugger with bendable tail. The Xenomorph Warriors from Aliens: Genocide come in both black and red versions.”

    I've finally pre-ordered the whole series 4 (due July in France). I'm still thinking that Ripley's headsculpts are somehow disappointing on pictures, but hey, they're just pictures, sometimes you get good surprises when you've got it in hand, and way above all : the outfits she's wearing are so iconic that I couldn't pass on these for my collection.

    ripley in hand looks amazing.  every picture, even on her box, doesn't capture what an amazing sculpt it really is. nothing was wasted imo, I love my figure, the sculpt is very sigourney.
    I gotta thank you dude, you've convinced me ;).

    So how are us canadians going to get the kenner 2-pack? Its not up on toysrus.ca...

    theres a slim(outside) chance ToysRUS.CA might post Pre Orders up at another time/date(the “?” is when), but i wouldn’t expected it

    Any online outlets for you?
    Well toysrus Canada hardly ever has NECA figures online and since it is a toysrus exclusive I might be screwed sadly. :( 

    its kinda of a hit or miss on TRU CANADA
    when NECA figures have shown up online, they were posted late(even months late) after their initial release
    and so lots miss out because they were completely unaware that they were available online

    not ALL is lost, there is hope
    they(TRU CANADA) currently have the RVT ENDOs and GORILLA Soldier 2 packs both NECA TRU exclusives online
    so the chances are good for the KENNER AVP 2 pack

    if nothing pans out online
    you can place(put in) a request at your TRU to their NECA vendor to get you a case to your store
    or even better find out the next time their vendor will be in and ask them directly
    but make sure that they follow through and aren’t jus dickin you around

    trust me they can

    the KENNER AVP 2 pack Pre Orders are also up
    its a TRU exclusive includes reprint mimi comic too

    Are we sure that this is a comic reprint of the original 1994 Kenner comic or is this a whole new version of the original Kenner comic?

    well 99% sure  :laugh:

    from what i have been lead to believe(read, heard RANDY say) all indications is yes
    it will be a reprint of the mimi DH comic from 94

    plus seeing how RANDY and COMPANY are big sticklers to detail in recreating the vintage/classic look/feel in updated form, i would find it odd if it wasn’t the original 94(reprint) comic

    I am looking forward to picking up Series 4 but they haven't arrived at my local TRU. I see what everyone is talking about regarding the pictures but I am waiting to have them in hand to really make my own opinions.

    So is the queen being re released?
    I know it was released awhile ago  but now there are pre orders for a July release? This the same?

    not really any pre orders you see from online sellers are back orders from the same release
    most of the major retail outlets are sold out but do get cases from time to time

    Is the 1/4 scale big chap still set for July?

    early to late AUGUST more likely

    then the power loader, then series 5, then the egg pack, then series 6 and the AVP KENNER pack

    ripley in hand looks amazing.  every picture, even on her box, doesn't capture what an amazing sculpt it really is. nothing was wasted imo, I love my figure, the sculpt is very sigourney.

    Even the prototype figure wasn't much convincing.
    After seeing the first pictures of the real figure, this is getting worse... they wasted Sigourney's likeness IMO.

    However, Dallas seems to be a real nice figure with a great likeness of Tom Skerritt.

    my SEGA GEN CH arrived today

    my NES RUNNER is on its way too

    Can you post a pic of this?
    sure no problem
    my NES RUNNER arrived this past thursday

    on a side note for any of those “keep in the package collectors” that prefer one side vs the other
    the RUNNER comes packaged 6 to a case, 3 righties and 3 lefties

    Wow, that's awesome.  I distinctly remember the baby blue Aliens from that game, although it was the SNES game which had the dark brown Aliens.  I would love if they made a figure for the jet black Aliens from the Genesis game.

    As to the Resurrection creatures, the original action figures and some of the newer statues were amazing, so I don't see why they wouldn't sell.  The Newborn might be a bit iffy, but I think it could be popular if alot of work was put into it (maybe they could do one based on the original androgynous version).  The pregnant Queen could be awesome; maybe it could have a detachable upper jaw.

    I preordered Dallas and jumpsuit ripley, really hoping I don't receive wonky eyes are paint app errors. I typically would hunt in store but I'm assuming ripley may be hard to find.

    Depends on if they think they would sell well.

    They would sell, Hicks, how could they not? :)
