Release Date: January 2008
Figures: Alien Warrior, Hybrid Alien (Closed Mouth), Hybrid Alien (Open Mouth)
NECA AvP Requiem Series 1 is the first wave of figures for 2007’s Aliens vs. Predator Requiem movie, released in January 2008. The first series includes the Alien Warrior and two versions of the Predalien – one with his mouth closed and one with his mouth open.
On Christmas Day, 2007 the war between the Aliens and the Predators resumes with the theatrical release of Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem. These action figures, based on the film, feature a variety of Alien and Predator characters from the film. Each stands 8″ tall, are detailed, and feature multiple points of articulation.
The Alien Warrior is a skeletal figure laden with grey-black armor striations. A glazed dome is fixed to the forefront of the elongated rib-textured cranium. The Warrior’s powerful jaws are filled with silver slime-roped teeth. The Warrior is armed with curved claws and a monstrous prehensile tail.
The PredAlien sustains a bulkier, brown-mottled frame. The PredAlien’s cranial housing is less curviform than that of the Warrior, and is further set apart by the presence of the Predator’s pulpy dreadlocks and exterior mandible formations. The PredAlien’s muscular tail, supported by a dense adjoining base, is almost reptilian in appearance.
