Many fans had given up hope on Hot Toys producing the sixth-scale Alien Ellen Ripley figure they had on display at San Diego Comic-Con 2014. While quite a bit of time has passed and the figure has evolved from the rooted hair sample we saw at SDCC ’14, today comes official word that Ripley is finally joining the Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series.
The Hot Toys Ripley figure stands about 11.8 inches tall, includes a body with 28 articulation points and features a detailed likeness of Sigourney Weaver, who portrays the Nostromo crew member in Ridley Scott’s 1979 masterpiece Alien. Ripley comes dressed in her Nostromo jumpsuit and includes a tracking device, flamethrower, and six unique interchangeable hands. A hissing Jonesy the cat accompanies Ripley, although we’re not too certain we agree with the color Hot Toys chose for the orange tabby. Jonesy’s carries box comes as part of the set, as does a diorama figure stand with a Ripley nameplate.
The Hot Toys Ripley figure is scheduled for release between the fourth quarter of 2016 and the first quarter of 2017.
