I have the old kenner one, its looks good but has very limited articulation. Thst line focus more on sculpt and less on playability. I hope neca makes the aqua alien on eday.
Those were actually made by Hasbro, after they'd acquired Kenner.

I though sk but wasnt sure.

Technically all of of the aliens line was Hasbro exept for the 1979 alien, hasbro acquired kenner in 1991but didnt get ride of the brand till the 90s or early 2000s, they still sell under the kenner brand for a lot of their Starwars toys.

I caved, bought that domed Warrior.

Person was only interested in Burke, so I was able to get the Alien itself cheap.

Modern Star Wars toys have had the Hasbro logo on them since they dissolved the Kenner brand after the Star Wars Episode 1 toys in 1999.

It really is a fantastic figure, the black color looks excellent.

I like to think of him as the lead Alien we never saw in Aliens lol. Domed > Ridged. Can't wait to get him in the mail.

Randy mentioned on Twitter today that an ultimate Dog Alien is coming.  Improved articulation and includes "2 bonuses".

Awesome. I loved the older ones but the head articulation needed small modifications to make it look like it's looking forward while running. Curious about those bonuses honestly, can't possibly be the Bambi Burster and Queen Face Hugger. I think that would destroy the purpose of releasing a whole creature pack.

Maybe articulated fingers. Better face sculpt, head that can actually look completely forward at a 90 degree angle, and I'm sure there's other stuff. Curious what the two extras could possibly be considering the creature pack.

Acid spit?

Cracked bucket? lol

From the new arcade Dutch and Lin pictures you can see in the background the blue arcade alien which is based on the dog alien that it has the new ball jointed knees. Great for posing. Didn't see finger articulation, but would love that. Really doubt we'd get a new head sculpt. If we're lucky, we might get a few more degrees out of the neck. Though that's easily fixable. I used this trick on mine, worked like a charm.

The two accessories are an interesting question. If they go with anything from the creature pack, then that defeats the purpose of the creature pack, does it not? But what else could we get?
