NECA Colonial Marines
« on: Feb 12, 2012, 07:22:11 PM »
NECA has just revealed that they will be doing Colonial Marines from the James Cameron film Aliens. Although Rpiley will not be included in these figures.

They just said that for sure they are doing Hicks in their line....

Probably easier to aquire Biehn's likeness than Arnolds, or Weaver's.  This is the Best News in a while!!

They also tweeted: "Not at #toyfair but we're sculpting in studio Rambo, Reese, Marines, & New Aliens Warrior w/ more articulation & removable limbs. Hell yeah!"

I can't wait to see them!

Actually, looks like it's based on the Colonial Marines video game, not the Cameron film.

Randy himself said from Cameron's Aliens

By the way, I asked if they would make the Pulse Rifles as well and I received no response :/

is there a link or anything? i really want to believe this, but it's tough considering... it's seems too good to be true... neca's hunger games figures look like the best human figures they've done by a long shot, i think they'd probably knock the aliens marines out of the park. lord knows the mcfarlane hicks left something to be desired.

About Ripley:

Q: Is Ripley included, or are we still without our hero?

A: not included. Her likeness is not available


About the new Aliens with removable limbs:

Q: why removable Limbs ?

A: so the Marines can blow them apart!! Game over man!!


And about the Alien Queen:

Q: I have to ask, EVERYONE is hoping Her Majesty the Queen will finally get the royal treatment from NECA. Any update?

A: hopefully for 2013 it won't happen this year with Marines and Prometheus on the way. There just isn't time...


About Prometheus:

Q: Are actor's likeness rights included in the Prometheus licence? Will they be out in time for the film?

A: nothing will be out in time for the film and I can't comment any further on specifics.


About the P2 1/4 and Cameron's Alien 1/4:

Q: Any hope for a 1/4 scale Cameron Alien to compliment the Pred?

A: we might improve and revisit the original 79 Alien first if it does well we'll see
