Set 200 years after the events of the third film, Alien: Resurrection sees the return of Ellen Ripley as a clone and human Xenomorph hybrid. Military scientist use old samples of Ripley’s blood, and mix in DNA from the Xenomorphs to create cloned Ripley that is impregnated with a queen. Once they are successful with Ripley 8, the Alien Queen is used to birth a series of new Xenomorphs that can be studied. With Xenomorph DNA running through her veins, Ripley 8 is stronger, faster and psychically linked to the Alien threat. At the end of the film, the Alien Queen births a completely new hybrid, now known as the Newborn Alien.
After tackling most of the other Alien creatures, and many of the non-Xenomorphs from throughout the franchise, NECA is now releasing a series of figures based on Alien: Resurrection. The assortment will include Ripley 8, the Resurrection Xenomorph, a repaint of their Alien Queen, and a Deluxe Newborn Alien. Today I have a photo gallery and review of the Newborn Alien. Our friends at NECA have supplied us with the figure. Check out the update after the jump.
