NECA had a ton of new Alien figures on display at San Diego Comic-Con 2014. We get our first look at not one, but two Ellen Ripley figures! We get a great look at Bishop and Dallas as well. New Xenos include the Alien 3 Xenomorph and the Queen Alien. Since the displays were small for these, we included the Rambo figures and the Predator Series 12 and 13 figures as well.
NECA has revealed their next video game inspired figure. They will be releasing a Batman based of the NES game for Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman film. This will also mark NECA‘s first 7″ DC figure! The figure will feature a purple and blue color scheme to mimic the look of the Batman sprite in the NES game.
The figure, which looks to be a scaled down version of their 18-Inch Michel Keaton Batman, will feature 25 points of articulation. It will include a removable cloth cape, a Batarang and a grapnel gun. It’s due for release in October.
NECA confirms that they will not be releasing a movie accurate color version of the 7″ NES Batman. See below:
@Blanka1212 Asks – Might we see standard colored Batman from you in 7 inch????
@NECA_TOYS Replies – No but it’s an easy repaint for most no?

Back at Toy Fair we got to report on some really fantastic looking Street Fighter Figures from Capo Toys. These will be roughly 7″ scaled figures and they were looking for them to be in the $20 – $25 range. They showed Ryu, Sagat, Blanka, Chun-Li and Guile. Now they have announced a Kickstarter Campaign to get this line going. They’ve sent along a press release, which you can see after the jump.
With the Kickstarter, they are looking to fund their Ryu figure to start. Their rewards range from Ryu in his classic white gi, to alternate color outfits, artist proofs and even a statue in your likeness. It takes $35 to get one of the 7″ Ryu figures and the rewards go from there. Stretch goals include them going after the global Street Fighter license as well as included accessories. Capcom will be making an announcement on the line at San Diego Comic-Con. You can see it all at their Kickstarter Page.
DC Collectibles continues their New 52 themed figures concurrently with lines based on TV, Video Games, Cartoons, and Animated Movies. They’ve just released a Deluxe sized Armored Lex Luthor (Mecha Lex if you will). A new take on his classic look originating in Action Comics #544. The “Warsuit” has evolved over the years, and this is no different incorporating futuristic military themes (as we see it today) with the trademark green and purple deco. We’ve done up a shoot showing off all this guy can do, check it out along with our thoughts after the break!
