I’ve been following NECA‘s Cinemachines, anew line of roughly 6″ vehicles, since they were first announced last year. The line will be based on an assortment of vehicles and displays from various sci-fi and action franchises. The first series is based on the Alien film series, with future assortments set to include The Terminator, Predator and even more from Aliens. At 6″ each, the vehicles are not in scale with one another (which would be near impossible to pull off). But each vehicle shares a consistent design, and scaled model car style packaging to make for a strong display. Included in Cinemachines Series 1 are:
- Alien – Fossilized Space Jockey
- Alien – Origin Derelict Engineer/Space Jockey Ship
- Aliens – M577 Armored Personnel Carrier
- Aliens – UD-4L Cheyenne Dropship with launching M577 Armored Personnel Carrier
Each vehicle contains a mix of plastics and diecast metal. They sell for about $25 each. We have over 115 high resolution photos of the first wave. You can see them, as well as my thoughts on the line, by reading on.
