NECA Reveals Aliens Series 9 – Vasquez, Frost & Albino Alien

NECA have now revealed what will be included in Aliens Series 9, due for release some time around September. This set is to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Aliens. Earlier this week, actress Jenette Goldstein revealed her Pvt. Vasquez figure based on her likeness. It’s very accurate to her character in the movie with the same tag on her chest – “El riesgo siempre vive” meaning “the risk always lives”. Her accessories include her iconic smartgun, headgear and shoulder lamp. Also joining Vasquez in Series 9 is another member of her squad – Pvt. Frost – based on Ricco Ross’s likeness. Frost’s accessories include a removable helmet, ammo bag, M240 Flamethrower and a pistol.

Rounding off Series 9 is the Albino Alien. Now, this Xenomorph featured in James Cameron’s original screenplay for Aliens which describes small albino ‘Drones’ helping the Queen and moving her eggs in the hive. Instead of an inner mouth, they have an excreting probe. It’s not particularly hard to see why it was cut though it did later appear in Alan Dean Foster’s novelization. So, here’s NECA’s concept figure. Scale-wise, I don’t think it was ever intended to be as big as this in the movie though.

The last bit of NECA figure news we have for you is Newt. Just before Alien Day, Carrie Henn revealed her Rebecca “Newt” Jorden figure that will be an exclusive for the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con in July. Her accessories include a removable helmet, light, her Casey doll head and and a photograph of her.

    I can dig it. I'm not sure if I'll be buying it, I'll wait to see it in person.

    What are the accessories? A flashlight and one of those weird sparking torch things? (like I seriously don't know what those things are in real life or what they do)

    Last year's 1/4 scale original Alien had a variant,perhaps this new 1/4 scale ALIENS warrior might also?

    I hope not. I found the fact that they made open and closed lip variants as a "random Draw" Annoying. sure you can probably pic one out in person at a store. but the rest of us who buys these figures online might not like having to deal with a "luck of the draw" crap don't have that luxury so it becomes an inconvenience as some people (myself included) hated the closed lip variant.

    Damn!!! That Xeno looks great! I must have it! It would go great with my 1st Alien xeno. I snagged mine for $50 Canadian at the time it came out. Have no idea what it sells for these days.

    The K-species were the green ones from AvP Extinction, right?

    You got it!

    More yellowish, I'd say.

    Bit OT, but did you catch the possible reference to the K-Series in Aliens: Invasion?
    Spoiler (click to show/hide)

    I thought it was a bit of a dig towards Resurrection.

    I like it and hate it at the same time. Simple repaint. I don't have a "Red Hive" to build up so these are of little interest to me. I will pick up a box set sure, but won't be opening any. K Series? Same opinion but an entire "Aliens V Predator Extinction" Line? SIGN ME UP!!! That's my dream team #facehuggerfriday reveal.

    God, I would love a Ravenger or Carrier.

    They're reissuing it in normal colour too, I think? I forget which way round it'll be but it's either the re-issue or the lead variant.

    I like the Genocide repaints. Not too fussed myself (I've got the red Warrior) but I continue to love them doing varients like this. K-species next!
    Yes! A reissue along with a new color scheme, the newer more grey scale (I believe it's supposed to be a molten lead version, pre-sprinklers lol).

    There was a bit of discussion about making this from the Aliens Defiance comic...



    What if... They make...finally...the Praetorian? Dream come true, number one wishlisted Alien toy. Please??

    There was a bit of discussion about making this from the Aliens Defiance comic...

    I think it's going to be Tristan's Praetorian. They were talking about, then went to talking to Tristan and Dark Horse and then Tristan made a comment about awesome Alien and comic related news. If it is that, that's going to be an absolutely quick turnaround!
    Speaking as someone who hasn't been reading Defiance as it's been coming out (and is waiting for the eventual collected edition), can you tell me more about this Praetorian? Thanks :)

    You can read about its different appearances in games and comics here...

    This article does not include any information though on its appearance in the new Aliens Defiance comic which I got the pic I posted from. (Drawn by the very talented Tristan Jones)
    I know what a Praetorian is in general :P I was referring to the one in Defiance specifically, I guess I didn't make that clear, sorry.

    Prepping another surprise reveal for #facehuggerfriday something unexpected & more conceptual a what if type of item. Speculate away

    I wonder what it will be? Imagine if we got an Arcturian figure.
    If they're willing to make a "what if" figure of a creature that doesn't appear on-screen but aren't willing to make a figure of the River Ghost (which *is* on screen), then that's a little wacky.

    RG requires unique sculpting. This thing will probably be like the little alien worker which uses most of the Aliens Xeno parts with a couple new things.

    Whatever this is will likely be something made up of parts already used or that will be used later.
  13. PRJ_since1990
    So this will be another concept figure, yes? I wonder if we're going to go down the road of hypothetical "facehugger implanting animal X so the adult would look like" figures. They're pretty talented creators in their own right but I don't think it'll fly if that's what they're going to do.

    Of course...

    From Neca..."thermal vision" glow in the dark AvP Alien.

    Have you got a link to the source, Sabres?

    Interesting concept, very very interesting. I would probably grab one of those. It's a pretty cool concept.

    It popped up on NECA Twitter.  It actually wasn't supposed to be seen yet, but one of the international sellers jumped the gun and posted pics.

    This will be a Toys R Us exclusive in the U.S. 

    International sellers will be announced later.

    Due for a late summer release.

    That's a really clever way to do the "Alien Vision" from the movie. I'm not planning to buy one (although I am a sucker for glow in the dark stuff), but it's still pretty damn cool.
