Ya.  For sure.  I just don't find it that satisfying.  I can't see myself purchasing this item.  Oh well... It's not like I've got a shortage on my Want List.  I really don't need another, "Oh Hellz, YEAH!  I Gotta get that!" item on my list.

I'm sure NECA's upcoming 'ALIEN: Covenant' figures will fill that role in a much more satisfying way.  Before you know it, the intervening 12 weeks (or so) between now and the release of that movie will be over in a flash and we'll be drooling over the new NECA 'A:C' figures.  Yeah.  I want to see those before I slap down cash on a figure I already own that's been given a new head and color scheme.

It may not be a completely new take but I dig the head. Closest we'll get to a Praetorian for the minute. I'll pick one of these up, quite happily.

I'm nowhere near up to date on reading Defiance, is it actually like literally a Praetorian in the comics? What issue does it show up in? And is the figure's design specifically based on the Praetorian design?

It appears in issue #2 and Extravehicular. It's not totally clear what exactly it is, but issue #2 might imply that it produces eggs, so it may be involved in eggmorphing. I could be wrong, though.

There was a quick shot of egg morphing in issue 1. When asked about it, Tristan stated that we may see it in later issues. So I think you're right.

I would love it if we got a figure of the U-headed xenomorph that Tristan posted a concept of back in July. I'm not sure if it will ever actually appear in the comics, but I'm still curious about what it could have been.

To be fair, Tristan Jones has stated he based its design in Defiance on the Isolation xeno and it was drawn as such. So it is accurate.

This. The head change came about because of Covenant and the Big Chap being taken off the table for the time being. Originally it WAS the Isolation version of the Big Chap. Changed the head, now it's Big Ugly.

Thats...interesting.
It's not something I'm opposed to seeing, but it is odd looking.

I, uh, yeah. I'm not sure how I feel about that design. It sure is a unique take on an Alien, though.

Hello fellow collectors.

I only just started collecting some Neca Predators and would like to add some Aliens to the mix as well.

Mainly I would like the standard drone or warrior and perhaps a big chap type. As with recent Predators that jave updated articulation, is there some recommended Aliens to pick up, or will some better ones release soon so better waiting?

Also will there be a re-release of the Queen by any chance?

Any recommendations welcome.

Thx,
G

A re-release of the queen has been confirmed.
As far as aliens goes I'm not sure we'll see a re-release of the brown/blue/black warriors anytime soon. They're still easy to find on amazon and ebay, I've seen them listed still as only slightly above retail price.

As far as the most recent releases goes the albino warrior and the gorilla alien are very solid figures all around.
