    Liar wave coming in 2 weeks it's happening
    It's in necas calendar for 6/16
    Meaning we can get it from tru around then, and necas eBay a few days earlier
    I am thinking the new marine is drake just my guess and I'd hope the sdcc is burke

    I mean firstly I didn't present what I said as a fact, secondly when it comes to news SSF is a little more reliable/up to date than we are most of the time since that board is specifically meant for figures and the like.
    If they're wrong though I don't mind because it just means more colonist fodder.

    I'm not surprised.  NECA's schedule's are frequently late and/or all over the place.  Mind you, there's so much 'ALIEN' related stuff coming out from them.  There's also the 'PROMETHEUS' Lost Wave content and 'ALIEN: Covenant' figures along with other merchandise for that movie.  So, they have about 20 items on the cards right now.  ...and that's just the 'ALIEN' items without considering their many other licences.

    It doesn't worry which series is next, actually.  Looking forward to it all.  Can't afford any of it.  lol.

    I actually heard on another forum that the lost wave was cancelled due to a lack of pre-orders. From what I've seen though in my local stores the Aliens themed stuff goes fastest and Alien 3 went the second fastest. Prometheus stuff moved the slowest by far, they had the engineers on the shelf when I worked there in a seasonal spot in 2014.

    they have changed their schedule
    series 12 is an aliens series, and it will contain a new marine
    i think 13 is kenner and 14 is resurrection at this point
    this comes from neca
    we should get the reveal at sdcc
    i think the sdcc exclusive will be aliens themed as well
  6. JokersWarPig
    I'll probably end up with two weapon sets to be honest.

    I read series 12 was going to be Aliens themed again, I'm guessing we'll get the Hadley's Hope sign as a delixe prop like the trophy wall/temple pillar. I'm wondering what other characters we'll see though since nothing's been announced besides the weapons pack?
    If the series ends up being all humans I'd hope it includes Drake, Deitrich and Goreman.

    I've never been keen on these paint and design variations on any NECA Alien figure (Kenner and stuff), but I have to admit this one is really top notch. However, the Vasquez sculpt was already so great that the figure couldn't be messed up in any way  ;D.
  8. windebieste
    Wow... that detail on her trousers - every single stitch and seam is one thing but the surface emulation of cloth material is stunning.  Texture, wrinkles, creases - they're all present.  Fantastic sculpting right there. 

    This is a 7 inch figure.

    Sorry Otter, just noticed your comment, but it looks like sir_bobos took care of it. I really like having the option to put the helmets on the neutral heads, and it makes me want more marine figures.

    I'm planning on using the older Hicks and Hudson figures to make some other, generic marines.

    have you posted a pic anywhere?  I'd love to see how it looks.

    I used a flathead and pried up around the sides popping the glue then dremeled the peg like Mister Skeezler. I don't like he screaming heads either so I'm using them for customs. I know they were going for a certain scene with Game Over Hudson but I honestly wish he had a more neutral expression.

    I just dremeled out the little post that are left when you pop off the helmet and they both look great. I'm not really a fan of the screaming heads, so I'm happy to have helmeted normal versions of these guys.

    Mine have arrived too.  I really like them in-hand.  I was a bit worried by the close-up pics I'd seen online, it made the heads look a little... cheap?

    My only problem is that my helmeted Hicks' head is a little cross-eyed.  Since I have both previous releases, I was thinking about trying to remove the helmet and put it on the un-helmeted head.  Anyone have any success doing this, and if so, any tips?  I don't mind detroying the head that is currently in the helmet.
  13. JokersWarPig
    I prefer the new version's skin colored plastic to the old version. Not that there's anything wrong with the old versions (I'll still be using the old versions for customs), but this does look a lot better and they don't look as "off" when you stand them with Vaz.
  14. Vark_
    Indeed the re-release of the series 1 grunts brings a few differences, I notice the faces changed somehow (especially Hicks, with his frown and what looks like a stubble beard paint).
    But don't you think this "plastic" looking skin is actually made on purpose, so that they look sweaty ?

    Noticed this on my Vasquez figure, looks great IMO.
  15. JokersWarPig
    Got my two pack(s) while I was at work today. Took some quick pictures since some one on another forum had asked, and on another forum a lot of people seemed worried because there's been a lot of talk about poor paint app's on the heads and rubbery weapons.

    For the most part the set is great, my only complaints are that the armor is missing the black wash of the first release and that the weathering on the armor seem's to have been done haphazardly on both my Hudson's shin armor. Both of these are easy fixes though.

    On another forum I read someone mention "gummy" weapons (like Frosts Flamethrower) but all the weapons I received are fine. The weapon slings and the piece of armor that hangs from the back of the helmet are a softer plastic though, which works for those parts imo.

    Besides the new flesh tone plastic I think the best part is Hudson's more accurate helmet. Even if they didn't paint his helmet band, I'm really glad they fixed all the other parts of it for this release.

    I think the main reason people have complained about poor face paint is due to the fact that these guys come in the new flesh colored plastic. quirks in the paint of the eye's and other area's can be more easily seen on it than the previous releases, but I got mine online via Toys R' Us and only got one head with eye's that seemed wonky.
  16. JokersWarPig

    I know they previously showed what the entire pack would consist of and (unless they changed their minds) one pack would have 2 turrets, a pulse rifle, flame thrower, knife and flash light. I think a better idea would be to add a helmet and armor with no name or graffiti on it, but I'm happy just to get the turrets.

    The creature pack at my comic shop is $20.99, and a deluxe predator is $28.99. I'm guessing it'll go for just under $30
    Yeah, the knife and flashlight feel like filler, but I could use the flamethrower for sure.

    That thing is pretty neat, I'll probably pick one up depending on the price and how they release it. Like, it's it just 1 turret? 2 turrets in a pack for $10 or something? Has NECA said?
  20. JokersWarPig
    ^ Awesome corridor diorama. I'd really like to put one together myself.

    Has anyone seen the pictures of the new auto turrets? Someone on another forum I go to shared a picture NECA shared on twitter. I'm unable to post it myself right now (still at work) but it looks great.

    Edit: Home now, here it is

    Pretty new to the game of NECA collecting. Just started this past Sept. I figured if I was gonna get Aliens/preds/Colonial Marines, that I better get started on a few Dios to pose them in. Took me bout a month to do this Space station Corridor.

    Thanks Vark, I actually am looking into the smaller scaled decals for some marines I have planned.

    With this guy I wanted the top decal (Big Bad Wolf) to look as if it was a sticker, kind of like Frost's "Nuke'em" sticker.
    The wolf head is something I like, but that was the best I could cut it sadly. I may try to "tear" little chunks out of it to make it looks worn and beat to make up for the sloppy application
  23. Vark_
    I think it's nicely done, face / gloves /graffiti and arm band make it look like a brand new platoon member.
    I wouldn't worry much about the graffiti you put, at this scale you did pretty well, though I would have added a little white "make-up" around the "Big Bad Wolf" to hide the contours you cut, to make it look like a cartoon explosion or something like that. I would have dissimulated the hole in the shoulder armor too, (looks "Hicksy").

    I guess I already told you that, but if you find the graffiti not satisfying, you may try model kits nose art decals (1/72 scale), they would fit right on. You can also consider customizing or accessorizing the helmet in the style of Full Metal Jacket  :).
    Good job anywway !
  24. Xenomrph
    I'm thinking $40 is fair because in order for the armor to do ATAX justice, it's going to take up the same plastic mass as basically 2 figures. It's ATAX the human, plus basically enough accessories to attach to him that make him literally double in size.

    A $100 price tag like we had with the Queen and Power Loader would be too much. The Queen at $100 is fair I think, but the Loader (and the Predator Blade Fighter) should have been priced closer to $75.
