NECA Announces Aliens Series 11 – Lambert, Aliens: Defiance & Kenner Tribute

NECA announces Aliens Series 11 – Lambert, Aliens: Defiance & Kenner tribute. With one day left to go for New York Toy Fair 2017, NECA has officially announced their next Aliens series!

“It includes the first-ever Lambert with an authorized likeness, as well as two new Alien figures: one from Dark Horse’s Aliens: Defiance comic book mini-series, and a classic Kenner Alien tribute that’s cast in translucent blue plastic just like the original.

Joan Lambert, navigator of the USCSS Nostromo, stands approximately 7” tall and features the likeness of Veronica Cartwright. She comes with two heads, removable helmet and flashlight accessory.

Both Xenomorph action figures stand over 9” tall and feature over 30 points of articulation with bendable tails.”

NECA Announces Aliens Series 11 – Lambert, Aliens: Defiance & Kenner tribute!

Series 11 sees the release of NECA’s first Lambert figure and continues with their tributes to the old 90s Kenner figures. NECA has been releasing Predator tributes for some time now but Series 10 was the first time (not counting the Alien vs. Predator 2-pack tribute) that NECA released Kenner tributes for the main Aliens series.

The Aliens: Defiance figure is based on Tristan Jone’s design from Dark Horse Comics’ fantastic Aliens: Defiance comic series which you should pick up if you haven’t already! Aliens Series 11 is currently slated for release May 2017.

NECA also recently announced their upcoming Alien: Covenant line. They will be producing 2 7″ figures, one of the film’s traditional Alien and what NECA are calling the New Creature (presumably the Neomorph). NECA wont be showing any pictures of their upcoming Alien: Covenant figures until May 19th when the film is released.

NECA has also unveiled their NECA Club X Alien: “NECA Club x Alien is an exclusive club aimed at the hardcore, completionist Alien action figure collector. Membership provides advance access to all of NECA’s Alien action figure releases, including convention and retail exclusives, with special bonuses:

  • surprise Club-only bonus items shipped with select releases;

    Burke is brilliant!

    Makes total sense to pack him in with a creature too.

    While I am very happy with the collection as it stands, I will continue to hope for Ferro. If they can do Burke, anything is possible!

    i get the impression we are going to see the 2 pack this upcoming friday
    and 1 more aliens figure to be revealed at sdcc
    my guess is 2 pack...god i am really having trouble guessing that one...burke gorman? that would be great...add the sign to added incentive to buy the "boring" characters
    sdcc is apone that is my def guess

    i doubt we'll be getting 3 new characters though, my guess is 2 new characters
    sdcc apone and the 2 pack prob 1 new character and 1 re release...vasquez/drake 2 pack is only thing that comes to mind if that is the mentality
    but i remember a year ago randy said he was talking to paul reiser at sdcc about a figure...gorman/burke 2 pack would fully complete everything from the 2nd half of the movie (minus queen egg sack!)
  3. windebieste
    That's the way I see it too.  Right now, it's a guessing game as to which 2 'ALIENS' characters will be revealed at SDCC. 

    I'm thinking Apone and Burke would be good candidates.

    so series 12 is going to be
    ripley with black jacket, looks great
    vasquez without armor with pulse rifle and side arm, looks great
    2 more battle damaged aliens (re releases on the slightly upgraded ultimate body)

    there are still 3 more aliens figures to be revealed within the next month
    a 2 pack i believe they will show us next week and some supposedly super awesome figure to be revealed at sdcc
    according to how they worded it, i believe 2 of these 3 will be new characters from the aliens film
  5. Xenomrph
    The BBTS pre-order on the blue Ultimate Alien is sold out, that sucks. :(

    It's probably for the best, most of the Warrior Aliens I've seen in the past had totally jacked up teeth so I'm probably better off picking this one up in person rather than rolling the dice that BBTS sends me a good one.

    Nice collection you have there my friend! All the dioramas look great & glad you are happy with the Prometheus head as well! :)

    You can never have too many Xenomorphs.

    re. one of the last posts - how did you create the giant Engineer head?
    I'd like to know this, too.

    And it's a good thing my current blue 'Aliens' Warrior is broken, it gives me an excuse to get the ultimate version. ;D

    at another alien forum, someone posted about that head at some website he said was Martinocatalano's
    so i google Martinocatalano and its some wierd gigeresque custom website
    http://www.martinocatalano.com/Prometheus.html
    the guy was asking $228 no shipping...i was like hell no
    shortly later, i found one on ebay i got for about $100 shipped
    it is amazing...it is about half the size it should be from the movie, it is like the exact same size as my head, about 12 inches tall
    looks gorgeous, doesnt feel fragile at all
    very very happy to add that to my collection

    NECA have their hands full at the moment.  The new 'PROMETHEUS' Lost Wave figures just hit the online stores.  'ALIEN: Covenant' merch is just round the corner.  There's a bunch of new 'ALIENS' stuff coming soon, too.  I'd say early 2018 at the earliest for the already delayed 'ALIEN: Resurrection' content.

    It was confirmed on twitter that there will be 7 figures besides these two "Ultimate"  Xeno's. All of the figures will Aliens themed. I'm predicting Drake, and maybe Goreman and bomber jacket wearing Ripley. The others I have no idea.
  10. dHunter333
    i posted these in the post your collection, but it seems this is the more appropriate page for this

    got all of my extreme sets out
    here are all of the ones i thought could be aliens related

    these sets will be put away most of the time...took them out when playing aliens all out with my son...never even took the aliens out lol it was just mostly human vs human action, as least not many aliens, never made the hive!

    We have the Command Station set. This set is meant for 4 inch figures, but it seems to do ok for this setup.

    Anymore updates on Neca producing more 1/4 Aliens, specifically the Dog Alien?

    I'm selling my entire action figure collection, besides a very few figures. The only figure I find worth actually displaying is the 1/4 original Big Chap. I would also be interested in the Dog Alien.

    Other than that, I'm done with figs. So I really hope they make a 1/4 Dog Alien!

    Do a list please. Also, would you send to overseas?

    Most of the figures I have are not AvP.

    I'm just listing everything on Ebay, No overseas shipping, though  :(

    I'm going to be selling my:

    - McFarlane LOST TV Series figure collection (loose)
    - McFarlane X-Files figure collection (loose)
    - Buffy the Vampire Slayer figure collection (loose)
    - WWE Mattel figures (loose)
    As well as some hockey merchandise, South Park dolls, and some CDs I no longer need. I doubt you're interested in any of this, but if so, maybe we could work out an overseas deal.

    I don't think there's any news on NECA's part to currently make any more 1/4 scale figures.  A dog ALIEN would be meat, though.

    That, and a Predalien would be great, too!  Considering the stupid prices their older Predalien now goes for, a decent re-release would be welcome.  After all, both the Dog Alien and the Big Chap have had multiple releases - at least 5 apiece from NECA.

    I'd also go for a 1/4 Stompy, as well.   I doubt that will happen ...but yer never know, huh.

    This is fantastic:

    The selective lighting of the figure in shadow behind the APE suited merc, the sense of menace in the narrative, composition of the shot... It's all there.  Too awesome.

    Oh, and this one, too, for the same reasons:

    Dunno if this is the place, but I've taken a lot of pictures of these figures and it's sorta become a weird off shoot hobby for my hobby. So here's a few if anyone is interested.

    Bit late to the party, but just received the NECA Ripley jumpsuit figure from eBay, but can't help but feel the face, particularly the lips, look nothing like the previews seen online. How does everyone else's version compare?

    It's an appropriate argument on a case by case basis - and different people will have different points of view. 

    For example, to have a complete set of compression suited Nostromo figures, it makes sense to re-use the same moulds and swap out the heads.  Casting the moulds in different colours and paint schemes is only logical way to go about it. 

    Otherwise, there wouldn't be 5 of them (Kane, Ripley, Dallas, Amanda and the upcoming Lambert) to choose from.  I'm all for them using the moulds wisely in this way. 

    Sometimes, however, it does appear that NECA mercilessly go out of their way to maximise return on their investment by re-using moulds with the most flimsy excuse.  Recast the Alien in blue and call it a Kenner tribute figure, for example.  ...or take the Stompy figure - an item that itself is a repurposing of the Alien figure - and give it a fresh head sculpt, release it and claim it's a Defiance comic book tribute. 

    In the end, it comes down to quality and while we're at it let's face it, such figures become recognised as variants.  Other companies do it all the time, too.  At least NECA are attempting to bring some validity to their re-purposing.  Overall, I think it's a good thing but the sheer volume of content they are releasing certainly makes justifying buying all of their releases a difficult task. 

    At least we are spoiled for choice; and that's a good thing, right?  So just pick and choose the ones you like.  Who knows?  Maybe one of these variants will become a favourite?  I particularly like their Stompy figure of all their releases to date.  2nd place would be the Dog Alien.

    They've released 5 of those.  I have 2 and I'm happy with that.

    I just don't like that thing about Neca, they're too lazy. Maybe that's why I haven't buy them for a while.

    Ok, I have to step in here for a second (and I'm not just being a 'NECA fan-boy').

    It has NOTHING to do with being "lazy". 

    NECA is a business, and a business' bottom line is to make money.

    The fan base for action figures of this type is actually VERY small.  So, in order to make a profit (and thusly continue to provide action figures in the future) NECA absolutely must get the most use out of the VERY expensive injection molds that are used to make these figures.

    This means that they will (and should) re-use parts where they can and still provide us with interesting figures.
