NECA makes cheap toys that more often than not break as soon as you take them out of the box. Their quality control is horrible.
And every once in a while they put out really poorly sculpted toys like the Covenant Xeno

Their quality control really does leave something to be desired.

The Alien figure looks like it's doing Peter Crouch's robot dance goal celebration

I've bought three City Hunter Predator's that were all broken.  The first one's arm wouldn't stay on.  The second one's computer lid was broken.  The same with the third with an added bonus of a broken staff and they didn't remove enough of the plastic on the disk.

Damn. It's so ironic because the details of the sculpts are so good yet they sound like they fall apart easily.

I would take sturdiness over detail any day if I was planning on taking them out of the box.

I've also read on here that the NECA creature figures seem to break more often than the human ones. Have you experienced that?

I was going to take back the Ultimate City Hunter, but I fixed it.  I had to glue the staff and cut away the plastic.  For display purposes it works.  My Jungle Hunter was fine.  No issues at all with that one.


The figures look great.  The accessories are always interesting and add to the figure.  I'm really careful with them for fear of them breaking.

That's why I never take my NECA stuff out of the boxes

I hate taking NECA figures out of their packaging... once removed, the packaging is destroyed.  Gah...  It's not like you can just slip a knife to break a small length of sticky tape and then easily open the package.

Alien Runner would love to buy these toys for his 5 year old nephews.

Yup.  Sounds appropriate to me. 



Not only does 'ALIEN' have a long history of delivering toys based on R-rated movies deemed suitable for children of your nephew's age group; but the first film actually started this trend all the way back in 1979.

Woozy Moo has the Covenant Figures up for pre-order. I'll probably just pick up the neomorph.

I keep my figures in the box so I haven't experienced any figures falling apart. I wouldn't doubt it though.

I'm wondering if they put more effort into the neomorph than they did with the regular xeno? I don't hate the other figure, but it's got problems.
