NECA Unveils Deluxe Newborn Figure!

Last month NECA officially announced its Alien Resurrection focused Series 14. Absent from that line-up from the Newborn figure that we’d seen shown off at events. Now, NECA has unveiled the Newborn as a separate figure in its deluxe line!

From Alien: Resurrection, the fourth movie in the thrilling sci-fi series! Two hundred years after Ripley’s death, military scientists are attempting to clone Ripley in order to extract the Queen embryo that was in her body when she died… And on the eighth attempt, they succeed.

Contaminated with Ripley’s DNA, the Queen gives birth to a grotesque human/alien hybrid called the “Newborn.” The Newborn action figure stands approximately 11” tall and includes a display stand. The Newborn features a screen-accurate sculpt and almost 30 points of articulation.

This deluxe figure comes in display-friendly window box packaging with opening flap.

    Thanks. I tend to use Army Painter black spray primer whenever possible since it bonds better than GW sprays (which are not true primers), but I might have to get out the pot of Abbadon that I never use and see how it reacts on a tail.

    The GW paint worked fine with out priming for the Alien I did. Base coated it in black and dry brushed on some light green



    All my predator/USCM armor I've done has also been painted with GW paint. I don't have a real preference for GW vs other brands, its just whats readily available to me in my area.

    I use the GW paints and they seem to work fine everywhere except for joints

    Really? Even on the rubbery tails etc? Do you just slap em on there or prime first? If so, GW spray primer or what?

    What paints do you guys use for repaints? I have tons of acrylic miniature paints but I can't imagine them sticking to the softer parts well at all.
    I've learned that enamel paints are best for undercoats - stays bonded to the plastic. Then I can use acrylic for the drybrush coats. For the rubber pieces that must be acrylic (I am looking at what paints are best that won't crack).
    That is what works for me so far, but I still learn new techniques so that could change.

    If I'm not mistaken, the rubber parts are cast in a matching colour to the rest of the figure and generally only get a drybrush at the factory? I'm really scratching my head over how to safely repaint those without eternal touchups to the base coat as it flakes off.

    I'm also waiting for my Kenner wave. Wasn't planning on getting them, for I collect the "realistic" ones only, but I caved and got Scorpion and Apone.

    I am looking forward to that wave.
    I like the Kenner waves, the design brings back memories, but improved - but I like to repaint them into 'film' style colours. The Mantis Xenos are looking more menacing so far in the black undercoat, I will drybrush them in a brown (like the Aliens Warriors). Plus I have the image of them all dark looming out of hived tunnels with their claws
    The Gorilla Xenos (black undercoat, but will be drybrushed in the blue-grey - like the other Aliens Warriors) are half done. I will post the pics soon - sometimes waiting for the base coat to dry takes too long.

    Usually brand new neca figs are typically $28.99 plus shipping. Or just that price with no shipping at Target. If you buy directly from Neca Ebay/Amazon, it's the same price plus super over priced shipping: $11.99.

    I'm not sure tbh. One of the shops I frequent has blamed import taxes for the increase in NECA's prices over here, though. They used to be half the price they are now.

    What the absolute f**k??? Jesus. I would revolt. God bless you as a U.K. collector.

    I stopped collecting for quite a while. It's only been since the last 4 years or so I've been buying them again. But I don't get all of them.

    NECA figures here are $55.

    For the basic ones.

    That's about another third higher than prices here.  :'(

    Kind of makes me want to paint some of my face huggers to match his "skin". The original Prometheus script did have ones that looked armored after all...it wouldn't be to far of a stretch to say this xeno and metal looking appearance come from those.
