Final in-packaging photos have been released for the upcoming They Live – 8″ Scale Clothed Alien Figure 2-Pack from NECA. The set includes both a male and a female ghoul from John Carpenter’s sci-fi classic. They Live tells the story of a nameless man (now known as John Nada) just looking to get by when he stumbles into the realization that Aliens are hiding in plain site. Through the use of specialized sunglasses, he can see not only who is not human, but the hidden messages they use to communicate. The figures begin shipping to retailers on December 2nd, and should hit shelves a few weeks after that. You can see the new photos after the jump.
Consume! Obey! A truly underrated movie of the ‘80s, They Live had a fun sci-fi premise hiding a deeper social commentary about the manipulation of the masses via advertising. Horror master John Carpenter directed the film about a ruling class of aliens hiding in plain sight and controlling the people via subliminal signals in media and commercials. For the first time ever in action figure form, see the aliens as they really are without the aid of technical sunglasses in this clothed action figure set, featuring a male and female alien. Both figures come with the wristwatches that transport them to the alien command center, as well as television, magazine, newspaper and necklace accessories. Window box packaging.
