Alien Egg Set Packaging Preview

Here’s another catch up post from my little hiatus the past few days. On Friday, NECA previewed the awesome packaging for their upcoming Alien Eggs and Facehugger Set. They are working on an actual egg carton for the packaging. It will include a total of six eggs. Some opened, some closed, with a few Facehuggers thrown in for good measure. We’ll share more images and info when they become available.

Check out the pic after the break.

Ambush Predator Bio

Check out the cardback and bio for NECA‘s Ambush Predator. The figure, which will be exclusive to the convention circuit, is a repainted¬† Viper Predator. It comes in a translucent plastic, which is an homage to the Kenner Predator figure of the same name, which was a mail-away item. It will include two masks, one with paint apps and one without and also includes some battle blade accessories. The figure was revealed a few days ago over at ActionFigureInsider.
