Gah!  So the Defiance Alien comes with the almost-useful-but-largely-shitty-display-stand that 'Stompy' has?

Being a re-purposed version of 'Stompy', I am not surprised. 


Yup, it's just Stompy with a new head and the same stand. Here's another photo:

The Defiance Alien doesn't actually have an extending inner jaw, does it?

I picked up the Defiance xeno and as of right now it's tied with the Kenner Gorilla tribute for my favorite xeno spot. The only thing keeping it from number one are the leg.

I like the height, and I dig the look of them, but they aren't practical for a figure.

I canceled my order of the Defiance xeno, now I'm regretting it.

What did you use for your diorama pieces and what did you do spray paint them? Im trying to make multiple sets for a stop motion film length film similar to Alien Isolations atmosphere or the original Alien.

Still no love from NECA on Twitter as to how to Get Col Cameron shipped to Australia.

How are you planning to get him (if indeed you are), Windy?

It's not really a figure that I find appealing so I won't bother with this item.   NECA are just making too much stuff and it's hard to decide sometimes but I'll let this one go.  Now, that Burke and Domed cameralien 2 pack is really appealing and if it's not released here I know exactly what I'll do.

I'll order it and have it sent to a guy I know in the US.  After I've ordered a dozen or so items, he sends me a big box full of stuff.  Sometimes, it even arrives before such items are released here, if at all, and the combined shipping is less than half if I was having them all sent individually. 

I had a box arrive yesterday, actually.  Among other things it contained a set of 3 Super7 blind box ReAction Aliens and another 3 Kenner 18"ers.   Can't get these item here so having them shipped all in one big box is the cheapest way to bring them into the country and the cost is basicly reduced to $10 per item for international postage.

If Colonel Cameron was on my want list and not available here, that's what I would do.  Mind you, it can take a few weeks or a couple months for my friend to receive all the goods I order.   Amazing thing is once he's got them all together, packed and sent; it takes a week for such a shipment to arrive from his place to my doorstep. 

Totally worth it and once every 4 months or so is like Christmas.   This way anything that becomes available in the US is available to me without too much problem - I just have to be patient.

Thanks for the response, sounds like a pretty sweet set-up you've got.

I'll keep pestering NECA on Twitter, but if I don't get a response I will have to resort to eBay. 

Burke can be had through Popcultcha, so that's how I'll be getting him.  I asked them whether they'd be stocking Col Cameron, as they have a few other exclusives, but they couldn't confirm one way or the other at the time.

I get what you're saying about NECA releasing so many things; I have limited myself to '86 Aliens, and '87 Predator stuff... In my book, Cameron counts. ;)

I'm very happy with my 2015 NECA original Alien. It's all I want and all I'll ever need.
