In space, no one can hear you scream. Audiences, however, have been screaming in shock and terror at Ridley Scott's 1979 sci-fi/horror masterpiece Alien for nearly thirty years. Today NECAonline revisits the original sci-fi nightmare as we debut composite images of the upcoming Alien 7" Scale Action Figure! Movie-accurate, standing 9" tall, and boasting over 20 points of articulation, the Alien Action Figure is the first figure that truly captures the nightmarish essence of H.R. Giger's iconic creature design. The Alien 7" Scale Action Figure will begin hitting store shelves at the end of this month, but for now take a look at our image gallery. Make sure to check back this Friday, when NECAonline debuts new pictures of the Alien 18" Action Figure!
Robert’s thoughts on the new Alien NECA figure: I saw the prototypes at the 2008 Toy Fair and the NECA representative said the sculptor took a lot of time and effort creating the finest representation of H.R. Giger's creation. So much that it became an obsession with him. Here is one of my own pictures of the Alien prototype from the 2008 Toy Fair.
