NECA’s Announces Colonel James Cameron Figure!

In something of a surprise move, NECA has unveiled (via Entertainment Weekly) that they will be releasing a brand new figure of none other than Aliens’ director James Cameron!

“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.

    Any other Aussies on here?

    How're you planning on getting Col. Cameron?

    I've tried to order directly from the NECA store, but despite internatinal shipping being available, Australia isn't an option.

    I've reached out to Randy on Twitter to see if it might be coming to Popcultcha, but no response (he is understandably busy with SDCC, of course).

    Brilliant news of the Colonel Cameron figure, I've heard there are easter eggs on the armour (ie. a Pandora patch) so that would be amazing.

    For future homage figures how about H.R. Gieger as a Weyland-Yutani scientist.

    One company actually did a pretty decent unofficial H.R Giger figure a while back. Not sure if it was actually released or whether it got C&D'd by Giger's estate.

    And we're going to need a flame-haired, cigar-chomping "Guv'nor" figure now as well.

    Love it!

    Okay, so will Colonel Cameron be part of a regular wave, like Windrix was, or is this some kind of one-off exclusive to NECA store and TRU?

    Any word on international distribution?

    So many questions!

    I'm sure answers will be forthcoming, but when pre-orders are already up, and there is no official word on availabilty outside the US... I get a little nervous.

    Ok now that´s something I never expected but still looks quite nice, never thought Cameron looks badass as Colonial Marine  8)  So next time, Ridley Scott as explorer with Nosotromo Compression suit? :laugh:

    Boo. Another peg warmer. I can't be excited about this, I've shifted focus to just the movie characters and certain game characters. Seems more like something they would have made for Cameron himself rather than a Series figure.
