NECA Alien Eggs Carton 004

We’ve seen a few images and teasers for the NECA Alien Eggs Carton over the months. NECA has shared images and new info on this fun, tongue-in-cheek release. These are scheduled for a September release. Here are the details direct from NECA:

“New from Weyland-Yutani, these eggs are sourced directly from LV-426, where Xenomorphs are allowed to roam freely without being confined to cramped cages. Buy cage-free and support our efforts to study and protect this gentle, misunderstood species. Warning: see packaging for safe handling instructions. Weyland-Yutani is not responsible for any spaceship infestation or planetary destruction that may occur.”

From the terrifying Alien movie series, this set includes 6 Xenomorph eggs and 3 facehuggers with bendable tails. They make great diorama pieces, since they’re perfectly in scale with our line of 7″ figures – and for collectors, the full-color egg carton is designed to be eminently display-worthy.

The new images also give us a great look at the upcoming Aliens Ellen Ripley 7″ Figure. Read on to check out the images.

NECA Predator Light Up LED Preview 002

This is not the final version, just a test to see how it functions. No word on if this is a sculpt for a new 1/4 scale figure, or a 2-up prototype for a 7″ figure. We’ll update as more info becomes available.

Aliens Series 4 by NECA 081

After years of waiting, fans can finally add the kick-ass lead from the Alien franchise to their NECA Alien Collection. With Alien Series 4, we finally get our hands on an Ellen Ripley figure. Actually, we get two Ripley Figures! The two Ripley’s are joined by Dallas Arthur to create a wave of figures from the original film.
