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.
