NECA have made a surprise announcement today in the way of Prometheus Series 4: The Lost Wave. NECA will be releasing long-requested 7″ figures of Shaw (Noomi Rapace), Vickers (Charlize Theron) and Mutated Fifield (Sean Harris) in April 2017. Series 3 of Prometheus was released way back in 2013 and was initially going to include Shaw and Fifield in the line.
Some prototypes were in fact shown off but the Prometheus line wasn’t selling particularly well and NECA ditched them in favour of producing more cheaper Engineer variants. The new character figures look exactly the same as the 2013 prototypes though. Vickers comes with a Flamethrower and removable helmet, Shaw has her axe, helmet and David’s head and lastly Fifield has his torch and helmet.
I guess the hype for Alien Covenant has renewed NECA’s interest in the Prometheus line. As previously announced, NECA will be producing some specific Alien Covenant figures to tie in with the upcoming film too. Look out for those next year.
