NECA Aliens Series 5 Features Ripley, Bishop, Xeno Warriors

Yesterday NECA posted up their official images for the upcoming NECA Aliens Series 5. To be released in August 2015, Series 5 will be the second time that NECA has released a figure of Ripley, this time from James Cameron’s Aliens. Series 5 also includes half of Bishop and singles of Alien Warriors from the Genocide 2-pack:

“Series 5 in our best-selling Alien action figure collection includes Lt. Ellen Ripley, Bishop (Queen Attack) and black and red versions of the Xenomorph Warriors from Aliens: Genocide.

Ripley features the likeness of Sigourney Weaver and comes with bandolier accessory plus the makeshift flamethrower/pulse rifle hybrid she jury-rigs to battle the Queen. Bishop features the likeness of Lance Henriksen and is based on the android’s appearance after the Alien Queen’s attack. He comes with an open Xenomorph egg and facehugger with bendable tail. The Xenomorph Warriors from Aliens: Genocide come in both black and red versions.”

    This... this is just wonderful!

    Love it; but it's not the first time the alternate translucent Alien suit concept has been represented in action figure format. 

    I know Super7 made a couple tribute items as part of their Kenner inspired 3 3/4" ReAction range of figures a couple of years back.  There was a smoky translucent variety that was only available to pre-order customers.  Then as part of the Deep Space Mystery Egg blind box series the same figure made a reappearance in similar material (albeit almost fully opaque and covered in silver flecks known as the Midnight Star Edition).  More importantly, there was also a third iteration of the same figure; and like the Midnight Star edition it appeared as part of the same Deep Space Mystery Egg blind box series but was cast in clear plastic.  So yeah, 3 of 'em, actually.

    The clear Super7 Alien, inspired by the old Kenner 3 3/4 " prototypes that never saw production in 1979.

    Has there been any other interpretations of this thing?

    Yes.  Still waiting for the 18" Big Chap.  ...and the 'ALIEN: Isolation' set, too.  That's gotta be released soon.

    Not the best quality pic, but here is my current and complete collection (until Neca releases more). Anything I don't have pictured here is because I don't want it! Waiting for the 18 inch Big Chap to arrive now.....

    Bishop torn in half is in there, but is not visible (he's under the movie Queen).

    Very nice! Is that just a re-issue of their original?

    Well, Corporal, I was thinking the way you do looking at the official pictures taken by NECA or in conventions, but when I finally decided to pick my Ripleys, I changed my mind when I had them before my eyes.
    And everytime I look at them in display, I think to myself I was right to bypass what my inner voice was telling me. They're really spot on, and I'm not the only one to say that here : pictures can't capture the awesomeness of the likeness. Really. I tried to take pictures of mine, but they're not even close !

    I shall have to give them a looking at next time I'm near Forbidden Planet.

    Can't really tell about Amanda since I didn't play the game and saw little about it on video, but as far as I can tell it appears to be a really decent figure IMO.

    Nothing much special.

    I'm still not digging on NECA's Ripleys. They just don't look right to me. Not Ellen, not Amanda.  :-\
    I don't take you for being a perfectionist Hicks, but I would love to know what specifically is troubling your inner nerd about these figures. Facial expressions? Depth? Color shading?

    Hicks, you do know those pictures are from February right? :P

    I did not. I thought the current lots of pictures were coming from NY Toy Fair. Didn't realize they were old. My appologies.

    So for my aliens I decided to try something new. I found these Halo cryo tubes from mcfarlane (I believe) and I will use them as the hyper sleep pods as seen in the film. I'll customize them to fit the look of my diorama as well as adding to the atmosphere. I suggest you all pick one up because they're not too expensive and they look so cool!!!

    I just snagged a Dog Alien loose without the stand and a couple Godzilla toys I didn't own already for $25! Sometimes you do really have to camp, set up alerts and be diligent.

    Yeah camping is key, you need to be patient. I've hauled in a ton of avp stuff over the years at half the price people demand. You might get them a little late but at least you get them in the end! Not to mention every dollar saved is a dollar of the next figure!!! :)

    I saw the Dog Alien going for about twice it's value at a convention. I would have thought these newer ones would stay at a reasonable price!

    Noo trust me, I saw that as well! I literally had to camp on ebay for 2 weeks before I found one for the right price! It came out to 21.50, and I almost picked up a second for about a dollar more. The problem is people are jacking up the prices to make a damn profit!!

    I don't understand how they can put lights in the portal toys but they can't do the powerloader with lights... It just doesn't make sense. I felt that the queen was worth the price just in sculpt alone but $100 for a powerloader without lights is crazy.
  13. StayFrosty
    So which Big Chap is cooler?
    I really like the original more movie-accurate version, but there's just something about the all-black one.

    Also, Power Loader Ripley & Queen.

    $100 does seem pricey but compared to the Hot Toys its a bargain.  Having the Queen as well as Ripley and Bishop it will make for a nice display.

    That is true, but at least with Hot Toys it's a larger scale and they generally release very very....did I say very? High quality products

    I get that but have you priced the Hot Toys Power Loader? Yikes!
    I think that this is still a good option for someone on a budget, and IMHO the price should fall after a while.
