That's why I don't tend to buy NECA's human figures. They never have as good likeness as the actual prototypes.

The worst one for me was Alien 3 Ripley. I know it's down to the difference between a carefully hand painted figure for promo purposes and a mass market factory job but that really pushed it.

That may've always been the case - the prototypes looking better than the final product.

Looking at vintage toy ads for the old Kenner STAR WARS line of 3 & 3/4-inch action figures, Hoth Solo, Hoth Rebel Soldier, and the two bounty hunters, Bossk and IG-88, have additional painted details, etc.

The black/blue Rhino Alien is sweet! I like him more than the red one, and I liked that one quite a bit! This guy will go great with some blue Aliens Xenomorphs. He is available at both Walmart and Target now, I've seen tons at various Targets lately.

Here he is in the package.


Here they are standing upright.


Then on all fours.


2 new ones and 2 old ones.


Entire Kenner collection.


Taking on a bunch of Colonial Marines.


Here is my YouTube review on him

I really like him in the blue! Didn't realise they stood up well either. Hmmmm. Tempted now.

I'm a Kenner traditionalist, I definitely prefer the orange Rhino Alien.

The blue does look good as a slightly more traditional colour, but yeah I also prefer the original orangey-red. As was already mentioned, dems Gorilla colours!

I’ll probably end up buying it considering Alien Day is right around the corner!

Blueish Rhino looks cool. Definitely a piece to pick!

What I'd love to NECA consider releasing is AvP Queen. I think it's the only major film creature they didn't release.  Come on NECA AvP Queen with chains and supporting lift would sell big time!

Yes but for real though honestly- I know a lot of people want that, but I'm so tired of the mold reuse and the Kenner figures, still waiting on film accurate Alien Covenant figures (Translucent plastic Neomorphs, CGI accurate Praetomorph), a CGI Sean Fifield or Abomination, properly scaled Engineer figures, Blue Marsalis and a good Alien³ Runner figure, and Dave Dorman's PredAlien.

But I guess I have to wait for an expensive overseas company to do them in ten or twenty f**king years if at all...
