Glow in the Dark Predator ReAction Figure

Toyark sponsor Entertainment Earth has revealed a new exclusive Predator Glow-In-The-Dark ReAction Figure. This would make it the fifth variant of the Predator ReAction Figure. We recently posted an extensive gallery showing theses figures:

  • Masked Predator
  • Invisible Masked Predator
  • Unmasked Open Mouth Predator
  • Unmasked Closed Mouth Predator

Unlike the previously released Invisible Predator, this will feature a translucent GITD body, with painted mask and armor pieces. The figure is priced at $12.99, with a release in January. you can pre-order it by Clicking Here.

NECA Alien Kane with Facehugger 005

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.

Big Chap Alien Quarter Scale

One of the things fans have come to enjoy most about NECA is the fact that they invite fans behind the scenes to see how products are made, giving us glimpses of products long before they ever hit the shelves. Today they shared a great shot from their studio, which shows one of their sculptors, Kyle Windrix, working on a 1/4 Scale Big Chap Alien. NECA says the figure is due sometime in 2015.

Predator ReAction Figures 043

The Predator ReAction Figure by Funko and Super 7 comes in four different variations. You can get a helmeted, unmasked with closed mouth, unmasked with open mouth and masked clear versions. As far as I can tell, these are available in equal amounts. Fans will have a choice to get the Predator in the style they most like, or all four to get a nice, varied, Predator clan. Toyark sponsor Entertainment Earth has provided us with all four figures, and I have over 60 photos of the figures.

NECA Alien Queen Packaging 1

The massive Alien Queen figure should be hitting toy shelves and mailboxes soon, so NECA has put out a few new images to whet your appetite. They have just released the first look at the beautiful packaging for the figure. The Alien Queen will stand over 15″ tall and will be over 30″ long from head-to-tail. This will put the figure in scale with the 7″ figure in the Aliens line. The Alien Queen will also sport over 30 points of articulation. Included is a display stand and two interchangeable inner mouths.

AvP Scar Predator Sculpt

NECA is gearing up for their future series of Predator figure with a return to the Alien vs Predator universe. They have posted a sweet in progress sculpt showing an all new Scar Predator. They’re looking for this figure to make its way to stores some time next year. Clearly, this is still in the early stages, so details can, and likely will change a bit before it hits production.

Aliens Minimates 060

The newly released Aliens Minimates were a long time coming. It seems like we first glimpsed these figures ages ago. With the first series now available, it looks like that wait really paid off with some crazy good figures. The first series is being offered in an all new way as Diamond Select Toys released a counter friendly display. The display offers single packed figures in small window boxes, as opposed to 2-packs. Doing this allowed for DST to get these Minimates into retail establishments that would not normally carry them. The set features three human characters and three different Alien Xenomorphs. Here’s the breakdown:

  • Carter Burke X1
  • Dropship Pilot Spunkmeyer X1
  • Colonial Marine Mike Wierzbowski X1
  • Alien Warrior X4
  • Attacking Alien Warrior X3
  • Battle Damaged Alien Warrior X2

Diamond Select Toys sent along a full case for us to photograph and review. We have over 80 photos of the set. Read on to check out the images and my review.
