Likeness rights can be a royal pain for companies looking to produce a complete line based on a licensed property. Sometimes the actor refuses to sign their rights over, or the rights can be prohibitively expensive. So, what’s the best way to get around an actors likeness rights? How about completely obscuring his face so there is no actor likeness required? That’s the brilliantly inventive way NECA is handling their Alien 35th Anniversary Kane Figure. The 7″ figures comes complete in his Nostromo space suit and includes a shattered, removable, helmet and a permanently affixed Facehugger. Kane will be fully articulated and will come in special Alien 35th Anniversary packaging.
Aliens Series 3, which also includes Bishop and the Alien 3 “Dog” Xenomorph, should be hitting stores soon. Check out a bunch of new photos of NECA’s Alien 35th Anniversary Kane with Facehugger Figure.
