NECA Reveals Aliens Series 9 – Vasquez, Frost & Albino Alien

NECA have now revealed what will be included in Aliens Series 9, due for release some time around September. This set is to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Aliens. Earlier this week, actress Jenette Goldstein revealed her Pvt. Vasquez figure based on her likeness. It’s very accurate to her character in the movie with the same tag on her chest – “El riesgo siempre vive” meaning “the risk always lives”. Her accessories include her iconic smartgun, headgear and shoulder lamp. Also joining Vasquez in Series 9 is another member of her squad – Pvt. Frost – based on Ricco Ross’s likeness. Frost’s accessories include a removable helmet, ammo bag, M240 Flamethrower and a pistol.

Rounding off Series 9 is the Albino Alien. Now, this Xenomorph featured in James Cameron’s original screenplay for Aliens which describes small albino ‘Drones’ helping the Queen and moving her eggs in the hive. Instead of an inner mouth, they have an excreting probe. It’s not particularly hard to see why it was cut though it did later appear in Alan Dean Foster’s novelization. So, here’s NECA’s concept figure. Scale-wise, I don’t think it was ever intended to be as big as this in the movie though.

The last bit of NECA figure news we have for you is Newt. Just before Alien Day, Carrie Henn revealed her Rebecca “Newt” Jorden figure that will be an exclusive for the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con in July. Her accessories include a removable helmet, light, her Casey doll head and and a photograph of her.

    The display is coming together.

    Not sure what the the pink and orange Aliens are yet though.

    Also, it looks like the Gorilla Alien is going to have a clear dome.

    Edit:  removable dome on Gorilla. And it looks like the third figure is a giant Queen Facehugger. Kinda bummed about that.

    I was going to get the gorilla alien regardless, simply because it was my favourite back in the day, and I wanted an alien to display with my Ripley, but I absolutely LOVE this thing!  I'm tempted to go all in with their aliens depending on what the third one is.

    NECA are killing SDCC this year (especially with the Henson turtles, but I'll save that for another forum  ;) )!

    QuoteOh my! Damn straight I do :D Super happy with it. It looks more or less like Pretorian.
    Man that is it exactly I was going to say the same thing.  It has a cool Pretorian feel and we all want a Pretorian in our collection.  ;)
  4. DaddyYautja
    i hyped myself too much. I thought they were actually going to go and create new stuff but they are going to Pred route where they use the same base over and over and over again. The only different being the new heads and little bits here and there.

    This is passable with only certain figures. The Mantis looks good but this gorilla just looks like a normal warrior.
  5. windebieste
    Fair enough.   ;D  These don't look like they need 'gimmicks' or such features, anyway.  Will they include any accessories at sale?  Some (not all) of the original 1990's figures included 'huggers  and 'bursters and such.

    Really enjoying what I'm seeing here so far, regardless.

    Well, that is kind of nuts, huh.  NECA sure are knocking 'em outta the park with these interpretations. 

    I wonder.  Does it include a squeeze bulb at the back of the head?  Can it spit?

    Looking forward to seeing how they round out this series.  After all, much like the Ramans, NECA have a tendency to do things in Threes...

    Bull Alien if you could, please.

    -Windebieste.

    No. Neca has stated these will not have any "gimmicks" on them.

    Another WOW!!!!  :o   Well Master it looks like you get your wish and I hope you approve.

    WOW!!! Just realised the last issue of Prometheus Life and Death had Xeno's that had similar prongs on their dome head ends.

    Also where the hell can I get myself the Neca Ripley from Aliens figure that isn't going to cost me twice as much. Very hard to find. Mind you I found the Alien Ripley at a decent price on Aliexpress.com

    Nice display!

    QuoteKenner Hicks and Drake were my favorite of the marines, the Bull Alien and Gorilla Alien were my favorite xeno's. I'd love to see all of them updated in Kenner style

    Mine too. I had every one except Ajax and when I was finally old enough to watch Aliens I remember being like, "Why does Bishop have hair?" lol.
  10. Ultramorph
    Wow! To thinks part of me was worried they were going to cheap out. Time to start saving up! Love that they used the queen face. I can only imagine what a Snake Alien would look like.  ;D
  11. windebieste
    Oh, WOW!  That's an amazing interpretation of the old Kenner figure.  They've taken something that was just silly and otherwise laughable at best and transformed it into something outstanding.  ...or at the very least somewhat respectable.

    Elevating this figure well above its ludicrous source material is no mean feat.  Nice.

    thats my spare kenner ripley, currently sporting a bald ripley head...lol
    its something that came with a x-files figure, i sort of use it as a stasis chamber even though it looks nothing like them

    Awww.... wut?  Well, at least it's nowhere near as bad as convention exclusives.  I guess this is US stores only, though. 

    ...or maybe Japan..?  Wouldn't be the first time:


    ...but I'm guessing it's a safe US release.

    -Windebieste.
  15. windebieste
    The glow in the dark stuff is pretty cool.  I'll probably pick up a couple of those when they're released... if they're not going to be SDCC exclusives or other chase nonsense.

    QuoteThat would be so cool. Henrikson was the characters name. I'd actually also love to see the Battle Suits from Genocide

    Yea those battle suits were great. I dug the artwork in Genocide.

    QuoteHaving just read Tribes and Berserker recently, gotta say I'd love a Berserker suit.

    Oh hell yea, they can even do separate ones for "Max" (Berzerker), "Shitkicker" (Tribes), and an Ellis one with the human figures able to be taken in and out.
