Unveiled at Comic-Con, NECA’s Aliens Series is about to see some expansion. They have unveiled their Series 2 single figures, a new 2-pack and an Alien Egg with launching facehugger! There are three new figures in the Aliens Series 2 line-up. A brand new version of the original 1979 Alien, which features an all-new sculpt with over 30 points of articulation and stands over 9″ tall. Next up is the Aliens Warrior, which stands over 9″ tall and has more than 30 points of articulation, including a bendable tail, hinged jaw, and sliding inner mouth. This version of the Warrior features blue highlights and a glossy, wet appearance. And the last figure in the second series is here to fight the Xenomorphs: Colonial Marine Sgt. Craig Windrix stands approx 7″ tall and features shoulder camera, motion tracker, and flamethrower accessories, along with newly sculpted long-sleeved arms bearing his sergeant stripes. Craig Windrix is the brother of NECA scriptor Kyle Windrix, whom is currently fighting cancer. So this figure is dedicarted to him. Aliens Series 2 will be available sometime in November 2013.
Along with Series 2, we have a special edition 2-pack that features an all-new version of Corporal Hicks, sporting a brand new aggressive combat headsculpt, helmet, and headset along with pulse rifle, shotgun, motion detector, shoulder lamp, welding torch and more. Hicks is packed with an Aliens Warrior that includes an exclusive “shotgunned” head reflecting the shotgun blast damage he takes in combat with Hicks. Both figures feature over 30 points of articulation and are unique to this set and available nowhere else.
Lastly is a great Alien collectible that many will want to get their hands on. They will be releasing a 4.5″ tall Alien Egg, which is an incredibly detailed recreation of the mysterious eggs from the Alien films. Whn closed, the egg glows with an eerie green light, but press the button concealed on the back and launch a rubbery Facehugger high into the air! Surely to be a high in demand accessory. Both the Aliens 2-pack and Egg will be shipping in October 2013.
