NECA will be releasing Series 4 of its Alien 40th Anniversary figures in May 2021. The set includes Ripley in her compression suit which is based on the likeness of Sigourney Weaver and Lambert in her compression suit which is based on the likeness of Veronica Cartwright. These two figures are the similar as the ones in Aliens Series 4 and Series 11 but the heads are completely new. The last figure in the line is a variant of Big Chap which has greyish colouring to match Giger’s original design. There’s also a Facehugger accessory.
Released to theaters in 1979, Alien became one of the most successful films of the year and has since grown to be a timeless sci-fi classic. To celebrate the film’s 40th Anniversary, NECA is releasing an ongoing series comprised of new releases all year long, with at least nine different Limited Edition action figures to collect. Each release will be a limited production run, so act quickly!
Wave 4 will include previously released fan favorites Ripley(Compression Suit), Lambert(Compression Suit), and Giger’s Alien, with various upgrades and improvements. Both Ripley & Lambert will feature photoreal facial deco of Sigourney Weaver and Veronica Cartwright! Giger’s Alien features new paint deco based on HR Giger’s original concept artwork.
Each figure will come packaged in a 40th Anniversary Kenner inspired window box to commemorate the occasion.
