The next Video Game Series figure from NECA is an Alien 3 Dog Alien. This 8-bit figure is based on either the NES or Sega Master System video game.

Essentially being 2 Alien figures in one. Solicitations are set to go to retailers today. We’ll have more info soon.

NECA was kind enough to share a photo of the packaging, revealing it will indeed be based on the NES Alien 3 Video Game.

It will be priced at 23,000 Yen (about $195 USD). Photos come courtesy of Tag Hobby.

Sega Genesis Predator 2 by NECA 004

It looks like NECA‘s 16-Bit era figures are here to stay. After the monster success of their 8-Bit figures (which continue as well), NECA is releasing their next 16-Bit figure. The newest release is a Sega Genesis Inspired Predator 2 – City Hunter Predator Figure. It;s based on the 1992 Sega Genesis Predator 2 Video Game. As is the norm for the NECA video game series (save for Robocop vs Terminator, which is a great game), this is a fantastic looking figure based on a fairly terrible game, which is definitely half the fun with their line up.

The 16-Bit Predator 2 – City Hunter Predator Figure will be packaged in the classic window flap box. It stands 8″ tall, features 25 points of articulation, and will include a spear and a human spine trophy. It’s due out in May. Check out some photos by reading on.
