Anybody else getting these? I'm on the fence with Hudson, but Hicks and the Alien are excellent. Great paint and very good articulation (the aliens' articulation is excellent, Hicks is lacking a swivel thigh joint). The alien is about an inch taller than Hicks, allowing it to loom over him and has both the inner jaw and a bendy tail. Probably the best alien figure I've ever bought and I own a lot of them. :twisted:

Agreed. These are excellent figures. The Aliens franchise really hasn't had the attention it deserved and it's great NECA are investing them. Really great is they have spent a lot of time on the detail. In case you haven't seen them, here's what Hicks looks like:

In his own words, I think he looks 'outstanding!' :)

I'm with you on Hudson. He looks a bit worried, but then he was a lot in the film.

If you've not seen them, here's the link on NECA's site: http://necaonline.com/38586/products/toys/action-figures/aliens-7-scale-action-figure-series-1-assortment-case-14/

The alien was a really nice surprise. I've seen loads of these look pretty poor, but he's really nicely painted and detailed.

They aren't easy to get now though. I sell figures in the UK and only managed to secure one box of them which entails 3 sets of Hicks, Hudson and an Alien and then a further 2 Aliens. The sets sold out immediately. I still have the two single Aliens though.

Thread necromancy!

My dilemma with these figures is that, when I first saw these films, the Marines in Aliens and the crew of the Nostromo in Alien did not really appeal to me. It seemed like they were just put there to be victims for the Xenos (which they were, of course).

But then NECA's figures really highlight how visually interesting the designs were in both Alien and Aliens. Frankly, I never thought I would want an action figure of one of the doomed Nostromo crew in a spacesuit until I saw all the detail in the Dallas and Kane action figures from Toy Fair 2014.

Now I am seriously considering getting figures of some of the Colonial Marines and Nostromo crew in spacesuits. What do you guys think?
