NECA Aliens Series 8 Unveiled

NECA Aliens Series 8 has been unveiled on NECA’s website. The 8th series is themed around Alien 3 and as such features 2 varients of the Dog Alien and 2 very firsts for NECA:

“Series 8 focuses on 1992’s Alien 3, and includes Weyland Yutani Commando, Dog Alien, and the first Ripley figure from this movie to feature the likeness of Sigourney Weaver. Ripley in Prisoner Uniform comes with removable jacket, 2 sets of arms, and flashlight & torch accessories. Weyland Yutani Commando comes with removable goggles, custom pulse rifle, and knife that fits in a boot sheath. The Dog Alien comes in brown and gray variants, with over 30 points of articulation and bendable tail.

Each highly articulated figure stands approximately 7” tall (Dog Alien is over 9” tall).”

NECA Aliens Series 8 has been unveiled on NECA’s website.

NECA Aliens Series 8 is due for release in June 2016. Alongside the Alien 3 themed series, NECA will also be releasing a “creature pack” that includes the Queen face-hugger previously teased on Twitter, a large scale Queen chestburster and face-hugger in statis tube.

In addition to Series 8, NECA also announced their next 1/4 scale figure to go alongside their recently released Alien (if you haven’t already, check out our review of the 1/4 scale Alien). This time around we have a 1/4 Aliens Warrior!

“Celebrate the 30th anniversary of Aliens with a new 1/4 scale figure from the thrilling 1986 follow-up to the legendary horror film. This is the first appearance of the 1986 Warrior in our 1/4 scale line!

The menacing Warrior stands over 22” tall, and has a hinged jaw that opens, revealing an inner mouth that extends for realistic movie action. It has almost 30 points of articulation, including double knee joints and a bendable tail, and is movie-accurate, down to the bluish tint that actually came from the lighting used in the film to heighten the cold, alien nature of these creatures.”

Aliens – 1/4 Scale Action Figure – 1986 Warrior

NECA are currently in attendance at Toy Fair 2016 where they are showing off the figures above. They’re also showing off the upcoming Predator series 16 (a Kenner inspired wave) although they have not officially announced them yet. ToyArk are currently at the event and have posted up a lovely gallery of NECA’s display (as well as their Cinemachines display which is heavily Alien and Aliens themed). Be sure to check them out!

    THere's a few Alien Neca figures I want to get but am concerned about buying knock offs on Ebay etc. Could anybody recommend a reliable and not ridiculously expensive online store that will deliver to Ireland/UK? Would be much appreciated thanks!

    I dunno... 'Lt. Vasquez sounds kinda neat; and at the very least isn't as clumsy as 'Bill Baxton'.  lol.  but yes, more seriously, as this year will be a big 'ALIENS' Celebration, I'd be very surprised if the third figure in the set would be a character other than someone who appeared in 'ALIENS'.  I'm thinking Gorman, actually.  Given the actor did bring his voice talent to bring Waits to life in 'ALIEN Isolation'.

    Of course, Drake would be ideal and welcome as well.  Imagine that... Both smartgunners in the same series... what an awesome duo that would be!

    On the other hand, I'm very curious about what the Kenner inspired series will entail.  I'm guessing that will be a trio as well.  A Kenner styled Ripley is a bit of a curve ball.  Wasn't expecting that.  Hoping they have a re-issue of the original Kenner Alien planned.  Either in original 18" format or matching the 7" range that we have seen NECA make for some time now.   

    Yeah.  That'll make my day!  *swoonage.*

    Ha. Well caught! She wasn't.  :laugh:
    They made a goof? Hope they catch it in time.

    Kenner waves and movie waves are always separate. They won't mingle them. For a third figure, if this is a Series (Newt, Vazquez and ____), they have to go with an Alien. They said it themselves that the creatures always sell better than humans, which I can see why but at the same time, these are figures of famous characters from a legendary movie that have only been available as super high end absurdly expensive Hot Toys figures.

    The idea of being able to get all the actors and actresses likeness rights for all the films will continue to be look enticing as more sign on and fans continue to show interest.

    I had assumed that the third was the Kenner-inspired Ripley, but given what I've been reading I think that might be another wave altogether!

    Ya.  That's what I'm thinking, too.  We're reading about 2 different waves here.  Why would NECA add a Kenner inspired Ripley to an 'ALIENS' themed wave?   So, yes.   I guess we should wait until further announcements are made.

    Definitely looking forward to seeing how this pans out.

    So glad Fox picked up on the whole 4/26 thing.  This gives it so much legitimacy.   An annual day Fox will bomb us with announcements/goodies/whatever.  So glad this has been made Official.

    Vasquez and Newt.  Nice.  I guess lending her likeness to the action figure is what Ms. Henn was getting excited about those few months ago.  Can't fault that.  Looking forward to seeing these get released.  Although, NECA tend to release these items in sets of 3.  Has there been word of a third figure to round out this set?

    Either way, too awesome to see these items finally hit the shelves. 

    -Windebieste.

    It's been a good while since an action figure announcement has given me that "squee" feeling.  I'm loving this.

    Are these two supposed to be released on 4/26?  Or is it just an announcement that coincides with it?
  7. Otter
    Newt and Vasquez?  This is awesome news!  My two most wanted figures (in addition to Burke, but honestly... I can't see that ever happening). 

    These two will really round out the line-up for me (knowing that a full set of marines is highly unlikely).  Anything that NECA release after these two is just gravy.

    Oh... and I hope the Reebok stompers are available in Australia.  Bring on 4/26!
  8. XenoZipper
    So much awesome stuff to be coming out!! I need to find a new job soon so I can blow all my cash on it haha I'd definitely welcome a Newt figure. I sadly only have the Series 2 Blue Xenomorph & the Genocide double pack of the black/red Xeno for Neca stuff. I almost had the Queen but Big Bad Toy Store rejected my Canadian card so I never got it & it took weeks to get my money refunded back. Still would have preferred to just have the Queen than my money back. Now I see a Red Queen is out now too!

    hey guys, been forever! (dunno if some of you remember me, or most just new fellas to the site, if so welcome) anyways I figured I pay a visit, I looked at the stuff so far, and I like the ALIENS creature pack. it's cool we're getting chestbursters again. we got them for AvP-R's Wolf Predator clone army. but these look way more accurate! the queen facehugger looks cool though personally I can live without it. I still wish NECA would release some dioramas as stand alone. they'd be great!

    I have gotten the Alien queen, she's beautiful on display, makes me proud I could get her when I did. she really does bring the room together! I also have the AvP Alien Warrior (AMAZING figure, you can absolutely despise the Alien design, but god damn if NECA doesn't remedy that with amazing sculpt and paint. I actually prefer it to the grid Xeno.

    I also got chopper and Celtic Predator. again awefully made in the film, but NECA fixes the errors and make them way cooler! I did however customize mine a tad and plan to do some paint work on mine. (namely on Celtic)

    and lastly I have the Isolation Alien, Mr. Stompy. the sculpt is awesome as usual. unfortunately i got a bad apple. the wire in the tail in mine was either broken, or not looped at the base of the tail like it should. the overbite of the mouth was really messed up (like it was pulled out of the mold way too quickly), and the elbow joint on the left arm was warped, the joints were ungodly loose at the reverse knee it should be a sin. otherwise it looks amazing and I've already parts swapped with the old NECA 35th xeno that broke. Part of me blames Mold Cast degradation (it happens all the time to Hasbro Transformer toys and Marvel Legends toys when the mold of a figure or toy is used for far too long that it starts to become worn out). I will however fix the tail, and I've already replaced the head with the other figure I had.
    Welcome back good sir! Yeah they really have been doing a bang-up job on all these new figures. Really takes the sting out of those who truly hate or despise the films.

    agreed, I think it's because NECA makes them more like an actual creature, and not like a suit.
    Absolutely. And their other figures as well, even the concept stuff and Kenner tributes. They all look great for the price.

At least that's how it goes for me anyway. Sometimes being Canadian does not pay off well when you're a collector.
    Same goes here in Europe, my online detaillers in France or the UK sell each figure around 30€, 3-packs sell around 70-90€, and huge ones like the queen / loader / 1:4 scale figures no less than 120-150€ (+ 10€ shippng in any case).
    Prices for series 1 were not that high, I can tell (I paid 60€ for the 3-pack), this is getting insane... since we're talking plastic action figures, that really starts to hurt. Apart of the room problem, with these prices I obviously have to make choices, as far as I'm concerned.
    That is insane. Trust me, if I did not have the room I would have had to downsize my collection. I probably still will at some point.

    They did. I preordered mine on BBTS. Says a June release, like with the Scarface Predator I also preordered. We'll see if that remains true though. Either way, I'm stoked.
    i'm hoping to find one in my local area but I think I'll pick up 2 at least.

    Yea the prices for Neca figures here in Canada sucks! Lucky if you find just a normal single 7" figure for under $30. Double packs are sitting in the 50-$60 range. That's why I don't have too many of them. I got the double Genocide pack & then a single Series 2 Blue Xenomorph but I have no Predators yet. The newer Queen goes for about $200 & the Power Loader around $140. Unless you have a job making big bucks (which I do not), there's not a hell of a lot being bought & when something finally does get bought, you gotta be picky & choosy on which one you want to spend your cash on.

    I just saw saw the new avp at toyrus last week, they are all over $30 now and the avp 2 pack is almost 80! im sure i saw it before Christmas for under 50?

    I want a good looking figure but i want to be able to play with it and not have it break. even if its for adult collector, with all of the new joints it seams to want to be played with. but it may be better and cheaper to just buy the old kenner ones online.. I fjust just got Lazershot.
    $30?!? Where do you live?? At my local they are $22 each


    In Ontario, Canada. Maybe it the exchange rate they never used to be that price. But it evens out I guise since the Canadian wage is double the states right now I think.

    Yeah, those prices sounds more like something you'd see on EBay. Not Toys "r" Us or some other retail shop. Atleast in my experience, I haven't ever seen NECA  two packs cost more than $30. No more than $50 for their 1/4th scale stuff.

    I'd kill for figures that cheap.
    1/4 scale figs here are well over $100
    Normal 7" figs push 40 each.

    It's killing to hobby for me tbh

    Woah! I can see how this hobby is strangling you're wallet. As cool as their figures are, with the hit and miss paint jobs and mass breakages, $70 a figure is crazy. That's robbery if I've ever seen it.

    Multi-pack will now be Aliens themed...

    ... and there will be TWO stasis chambers.  Very happy about that.

    Sweet! I still have my hive from the Mcfarlane A L I E N vs. PREDATOR two pack. With the carton of eggs they released not long ago. I will have an army of facehuggers. ;D

    However I still don't have any chest bursters. So, I'm psyched about that.
    Don't feel bad. Besides a big plush one I have, I only own one burster from the AvPR Wolf figure. Very pleased we are getting updated ones.

    Multi-pack will now be Aliens themed...

    ... and there will be TWO stasis chambers.  Very happy about that.

    Sweet! I still have my hive from the Mcfarlane A L I E N vs. PREDATOR two pack. With the carton of eggs they released not long ago. I will have an army of facehuggers. ;D

    However I still don't have any chest bursters. So, I'm psyched about that.

    Yeah this looks great! Can't wait to see the packaging! I'd bet we will see it drop on Aliens day! So much merch coming out on April 26th (day before my bday!)

    @BOP:

    I have a Stompy and I am very happy with it.  I found the painted highlighting to be understated but not any real issue.  I guess it's going to vary from one figure to the next. 

    There's no problems with the wire core tail on this figure either; but yours isn't the first instance I've heard regarding the wire piercing through to the surface.  I am guessing that this issue is more common than desirable considering that I've now heard about it twice.

    I had to straighten out the bladed tail tip in a cup of hot water as it was bent into a U shape while in the packaging but that's the only quality issue I had with the figure.

    So, finally got my Isolation xeno from BBTS, and this is the first NECA fig that I got with quality issues.

    Firstly, and foremostly,  the bendy wire tore through the rubber at the tails tip, and tho I've managed to sorta tuck it back in, it's still a bummer. Then, there's an unpainted (white-ish) gap near the back of the dome, and there's some real splotchy highlight paint.

    But the most weird part to me, is the finish to the paint - it's considerably less glossy than all my other xenomorph figures, especially around the tail. So I have a question for you guys who own the figure - is that a creative decision based on the character, and you have the same more matte look, or it's just the dude who painted my fig just skimped out on the laquer?

    I can't blame Big Chap for hitting that... just wish he hadn't done so to the point of DEATH.

    Well that sounds rapey  :-X

    It is interesting that NECA Lambert has hair, because she would be wearing a cap in her space suit like Dallas and Kane.

    Well, the way he did it. It was.

    I was just saying Veronica Cartwright was hot and I could see the attraction the Alien might have had for her. If that all still sounds rapey. Then...Well I'll just stop talking. :-[

    That is an interesting thing you brought up. She should have her little cap on like Kane and Dallas. Wonder if they thought people wouldn't notice it was Lambert in the suit? Doubtful, but that's the only thing I can think of. Well, besides ' we aren't gonna be making her in her Nostromo crew outfit. So here is a compromise ' ?

    Perhaps they'll do a jumpsuit version if the spacesuited version sells well enough. I know they tend to find the human figures don't do as well.

    Really? That doesn't surprise me for certain characters. But, how well did Hicks, Hudson, and Ripley sell from the ALIENS line? I can't imagine those didn't fair so well. I can understand Bishop or Kane and Dallas. Just because they usually aren't the most popular characters for average audience members who might be inclined to pick up a NECA figure.


    QuoteYeah,she looked really hot in cowboy boots.The Alien must have thought so too.

    I'd like to see all seven in their everyday clothes,they'd look good lined up on display in order of rank.



    Also I agree, cowboy boots Lambert was hot. I can't blame Big Chap for hitting that... just wish he hadn't done so to the point of DEATH. I'd also love a Brett and Parker. That'd be sweet, but highly unlikely. :'(

    No terrorface?

    wot ...no cowboy boots, either?

    Lambert's head stuck on a Kane or Dallas body sculpt,most of the hard work done already,just needs a coat of blue for her suit.

    Same deal as the recent 3x Nostromo crew ReAction  boxed set.

    such disappoint.   :(

    *shrugs*.  Oh well. At least we do get a Lambert figure.  That's still cool; but no cowboy boots = gah.
