NECA has revealed a limited edition Kenner-tribute Ripley figure to celebrate Alien Day 2016.
Inspired by the design of Kenner’s 1993 Aliens Ripley figure, NECA faithfully recreates the classic Kenner figure down to the packaging.
NECA’s 7-inch scale Ripley features the likeness of Sigourney Weaver, who portrays Lt. Ellen Ripley in the Alien franchise. NECA’s figure matches the maroon shirt, bandana, and yellow boots of the Kenner design while incorporating over 25 points of articulation to bring the figure up to modern action figure standards. Ripley is equipped with a bandolier and smartgun, and is packaged in Kenner-homage packaging featuring a collectible file card with bio plus a commemorative reprint of the Dark Horse mini-comic that was included with the Kenner release.
NECA’s Kenner-tribute Ripley will be available only in Toys R Us and Hastings stores the week of April 26, with a very limited number available on the Toys R Us website.
Alien Day is a celebration of the Alien franchise. The April 26 date (4/26) is a nod to the moon LV-426 in Ridley Scott’s original Alien moive and where the Xenomorphs were first discovered by the crew of the Nostromo.
