In 2012, fans of the Alien series were introduced to Prometheus, Ridley Scott’s long awaited return to the mythology he helped create. Originally conceived as a more direct prequel to Alien, the film script underwent rewrites to distance itself from the origin of the Xenomorph we all know and fear. Prometheus combined gorgeous visuals, a stellar performance by Michael Fassbender as the android David, and deep questions on the origin of life, and the consequences of trying to answer those questions. The film was immediately polarizing to fans of the Alien franchise. Some loved the set up, visuals and new additions to the lore, while others were turned off by odd character decisions, the lack of answers to the numerous questions and the absence of the actual Xenomorph species. The movie ultimately under performed at the North American box office (but did considerably better overseas).
Action figures created by NECA Toys never seemed to strike a chord with fans, as the line ultimately ended with only a handful of molds produced, and major characters being cancelled. Over time, a few of these figures have become highly sought after, including the Deacon (the creature seen at the end of the film). Fast forward to December 2016, and fans began getting a taste for the (now released) Alien: Covenant, a film which promised to bring Prometheus and Alien together. NECA saw this as a prime opportunity to get fans the figures they wanted, and release the final three figures that were underway when the Prometheus line was a cancelled. Dubbed The Lost Wave, this three-figure assortment brings fans the highly requested Dr. Elizabeth Shaw, the infected version of Sean Fifield and the daughter of Peter Weyland, Meredith Vickers.
NECA has provided us with advanced samples of the soon to be released figures! We have over 70 high resolution photos and a full review. Check out the photo shoot and my thoughts on the assortment by reading on.
Sadly, the sales on Prometheus figures was never strong enough to justify continuing the line back in 2013. With enough time passing since some were disappointed in the film, a new movie and incomplete collections, fans have been vocal in wanting to see a few of these figures get released. However, with the Prometheus film and Alien franchise officially coming together in Alien: Covenant, NECA is taking the opportunity to bring a lost wave to fans! In the first quarter of 2017, NECA will be releasing three highly requested figures in Zombie Fifield, Dr. Elizabeth Shaw and Meredith Vickers! Here’s more info:
In preparation for its upcoming sequel, Alien: Covenant, we return to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi thriller Prometheus!
At long last, this series includes the never-released figures fans have been requesting: Vickers, Shaw and Fifield. The 7” scale figures are entirely movie accurate and feature over 25 points of articulation. Vickers (Charlize Theron) comes with flamethrower and removable helmet. Shaw (Noomi Rapace) comes with axe, removable helmet and the android David’s severed head. Fifield (Sean Harris) comes with flashlight and removable helmet. Clamshell packaging.
The website lists them for an April release. You can check out a few photos after the jump.
With any toy company, or any production company at all, you have products that simply don’t make it to market. Reasons vary from product to product. Some times it’s related to cost, other times a line isn’t doing well enough to justify a new release or the product has the misfortune of never being ready for the public. Fans who have followed NECA for a long time know some of their most iconic unreleased items, such as their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shredder or the Shaun of the Dead Zombie Ed. But that’s really only the tip of the iceberg.
As part of our Week of NECA, we’re going to take a look at a few of the unreleased items from over the years. Keep in mind, this is only a small sample size of the unreleased figures. For every figure or collectible we know about, there are likely a dozen that have never been seen outside of those working at the studio. Read on and take a look at the “What If’s” of the NECA toy world.
Back at Toy Fair 2013, NECA showed a few new Prometheus figures, including Dr. Shaw and a “Zombie” Fifiled. Well, NECA Reveals sales of Prometheus figures has been below expectations. So those two figures, as well as any figures that used their tooling, have been shelved. Prometheus Series 3 will consist of figures made from the already released molds. See below for the tweets that unveiled this info.
@NECA_TOYS Does that mean sales have justified a Series 3 for sure? I remember there was some doubt…
@LYTrules Yes but from existing tooling, not strong enough to tool new figures at the moment
@NECA_TOYS So no females, is what you’re saying?
@LYTrules at the moment no females and no Fifeld since new tooling is required to create all of them
