Seriously, I'd buy the entire squad if they made em. Chances are it'll be limited to Hicks, Vasquez and Hudson though.

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.

Here:

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

 :o

Not to be difficult, but I see nothing in that Q&A that says "Cameron's Marines", specifically. I'm not able to look at twitter while at work, so if there's more at the link I apologize.

Right, here is what's inside the link:

Q: Dont get me wrong, im more than happy with the Prometheus figures. But what do you mean by "classic Alien"? Just the first movie?

A: the entire franchise, Colonial Marines are coming from Cameron's film.

Thank you. It's utterly awesome if it happens, but I tend to be skeptical until I at least see samples. I appreciate you guys sharing the information though. I'd read on another site that it was based on a video game, and not the movie, but obviously better to get it from the horse's mouth.

I hope Ripley is eventually made as an Alien series by NECA without Ripley is like cake without icing.

I highly doubt we'll see ANY Prometheus stuff until after the movie is released unless it is human characters.

Damnit. Would have preferred the queen before the marines, but hey I can't complain too much.

at least there is hope, thats enough for me for now. i enjoy my mcfarlane hicks, but i bet i'd love neca's way more, plus the other marines. this calls for my best diarama ever, and a hell lot of more warriors
