Fans looking to spice up their Alien action figure displays have a great new option from NECA. They have released their first “Creature Pack” for the Aliens line to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Aliens. The set contains two light up Stasis Chambers, four Facehuggers (two that are removable from the stasis chambers) and two Chestbursters. The Aliens Creature Pack allows fans to set up their own LV-426 Xenomorph research lab, or easily build up their Alien creature army. The set sells for about $20 and is available now. We grabbed the Creature Pack from Toyark sponsor Big Bad Toy Store and have 50 high resolution photos to check out.

NECA is no stranger to diorama and accessory releases. Their diorama displays date back to the Cult Classics era. The new Creature Pack, and the upcoming Predator Accessory Pack are more companion sets than actual diorama displays, but include great pieces to start or add to your own dios. This pack comes in a small window box. The contents sit on a plastic tray, held in by a few pieces of tape. A cardboard backdrop is also included. Each of the items can be placed back on the tray easily for storage, or even display as the box itself has a nice large window to showcase the creatures.
The main attraction (for me) from the set are the Stasis Chambers. The set contains two chambers, each with a Facehugger inside. The chambers are constructed of hard plastic. The tubes are a thick clear plastic that are constructed to allow them to be filled with water, adding that extra touch of realism. The tops of the chambers are removable to do this, or if you’d like to remove the Facehuggers inside. The chambers include LED lights (and batteries), which are located in the bottom of the base. The batteries can be easily replaced when their juice runs out. The light itself is pretty strong and features a very blue glow that lights up the Facehugger perfectly. The chambers are well made, and while simple, they look quite good in hand.
The other items included are the actual creatures for the Creature Pack. You get four Facehuggers in total as well as two Chestbursters. We’ve taken a look at the Facehuggers numerous times before. These are essentially the same ones you’d find in the Alien Egg Cartons. The Chestbursters, though, are all new. They are small, but incredibly detailed for their size. They are already blood covered, so you can immediately add them to your own Alien victims. The Chestbursters feature a bendable tale, allowing you to display them on their own. However, on both of mine, the wire on the inside didn’t extend to the end of the tail, and broke through the back end of the tail while posing.
The set as a whole is excellent. The Facehuggers and Chestbursters are easy army builder releases, with the Stasis Chambers adding another option for displaying with the likes of Bishop, Ripley and the Marines. If your a fan of NECA’s Aliens line, then this is a perfect companion release for the figures.
