These are too cool. If they end up releasing figures of everyone, including the more obscure characters like Wierzbowski and Crowe...I'm definitely in.

Since the actor who played Crowe has since passed away, who would NECA even ask about likeness rights? Next of kin?

I'm not really sure they'd have to ask anyone. His family doesn't own his likeness nor would they really have any right to be compensated for its use.

Honestly, I am pretty disappointed about how they did the helmet thing. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the way these figures look, they've been my two most wanted figures since I was a child, but this isn't exactly the way I'd want to have them. Since they aren't removable helmets,  I think they should have the yelling Hicks head with a headset on, and give us an alt. head with a nuetral face &helmet. As for Hudson, him I don't mind as much. The yelling face will look great with the helmet, since that's pretty much how he was facing Xenos(When he actually had a weapon, anyway.), but I still hope they do another variant with his smirk and hopefully another Hicks. And Sexypoot, you can spare me the whole 'it's neca, of course they'll do the variants' speel, however, it would be reassuring this time. :laugh:

People this is not confirmed information.  I'm hopeful that it turns out to be Apone, but they haven't announced yet who it is.

I only briefly mentioned series 2.  I was just goin to wait to post it's details of who was in it until they were all announced.  But yeah, blue Aliens Warrior, 1979 Big Chap,and one marine with a flamethrower!  Can't wait! Post updated as well!

The figures in those pictures look bigger than 7" scale. Unless the McFarlane facehugger scale is off, which it doesn't seem to be given the other 7" stuff I've compared it to. I'm probably wrong though

Edit: Never mind, I think I ust needed a closer look at the pics

I think those are the larger scale models they use for convention displays and stuff.

Neca itself said there´s a chance it would be Apone, so I guess it´s one of the surprises that are held for this next San Diego Comic Con

If Michael Biehn and bill Paxton would appear in SDCC for their figures' signature that would be perfect. Although i am in Hong Kong and won't be there, seeing them reunited for their avatars are  memorial for Aliens fans like me.

Gimme a break. It's Apone. The other possibilities are Frost, Dietrich, or Wierzbowski. Not happening.  :-*

EDIT:

Not happening first at least.
