The Alien 40th Anniversary Collection From NECA

NECA has released a teaser showing the packaging for their upcoming The Alien 40th Anniversary collection. They say there will be three different series of figures in new anniversary packaging. Each series will contain 3 figures. Series 1 will be available at Target stores in April/May with news on series 2 and 3 being revealed next month at Toy Fair.

As for what figures will be included, NECA isn't yet saying much other than releasing an image of a figure for the Samuel Brett character. They also confirmed all the figures for this will be based on the first Alien movie with new debuts, figures with new accessories and figures with new printed facial decos. They also hinted we may see a figure based on the John Hurt Kane character.

The packaging teaser indicates figures of Ripley, Dallas and The Alien. It's not clear if the packaging shown is random or if that is meant to show the characters in the first wave.

Toy Fair kicks on on February 22. We will be sure to update this story as more details become available.

I think I like the original with closed mouth better.

Naw, I'm good with the current version I have. Not enough in this offering to spring for an updated one. Bring on the rest of the crew!

NECA yesterday released official images for their upcoming Alien 40th Anniversary Collection Ripley figure. While primarily a re-release, this figure does have some improvements that have been made to it. The figure includes the Motion Detector, flamethrower, Cat Carrier, and a new Jonesy for accessories. The figure also includes a new digitally printed face deco. Check out the images below.

So looks like NECA is going to be offering these three different series at various retail stores. So like series one is Target, and looks like Walmart will be a place for one of the other assortments and then the third may be offered through the specialty market.

So basically:

Series 1 Target Exclusive.

Series 2 Walmart Exclusive.

Series 3 E-tailers Exclusive.

oh gawd...

Those faces are looking awesome between this and the reveal last year. Can't wait to see the whole crew together.

Someone needs to tell NECA that they need to change the 40 on their package to a 41.
