“The collectibles company NECA announced Monday that Cameron is joining the Aliens universe in the form of an action figure which finds him depicted as a colonel in the United States Colonial Marine Corps and will be released in November.
The figure is 7 inches tall, has more than 25 points of articulation, features Cameron as he appeared during the filming of the 1986 science fiction sequel, and comes with a pistol, pulse rifle, tracking device, and viewfinder. The figure’s clothing is decorated with a Canadian flag shoulder patch and a Pandora planet patch as well as the logo of the “real” Cameron’s company, Lightstorm. This is the first time Cameron has allowed his likeness to be used for an action figure.
In the U.S., the Cameron action figure is now available to pre-order at the NECA website and will also be sold at Toys ‘R’ Us stores. There are no retail restrictions internationally. Comic-Con attendees can see the action figure at the NECA booth (#3145) beginning on Preview Night.”
This will be the second non-movie Colonial Marine action figure that NECA has released. In 2013 NECA also released Sargeant Craig Windrix (far right in the picture above), a tribute figure of the brother of NECA’s Kyle Windrix. Craig passed away in February 2014 after battling cancer.
