I was actually hoping for a Ripley before Hicks - I wanted to make a Ripley v. Alien Queen diorama, but it never happened so I sold my Alien Queen boxed set ... If they ever make Ripley, I'll buy another.I'd take David or a 'flipped out' Fifield, but NECA isn't so big on making humans figs. They pretty much stay with making the monster bad guys!
I mean, look how long it's taking them to produce a Hicks from ALIENS or Kyle Reese from THE TERMINATOR...
I'm surprised they think they wouldn't sell. I don't think the crew as seen on ship would do great business, but the Moebius suits are fantastic. I almost bought those Hot Toys/Sideshow 12" figures of Kane and Dallas a few back. Had them pre-ordered and everything, but had to pull the plug.I'm pretty sure they still have the license to do the actual Alien, but don't know about any of the other characters. I THINK someone asked them about it on Twitter a while back and NECA responded that they weren't pursuing any of the actor's likenesses as they probably wouldn't sell. Can't quite remember if this question was for the first Alien movie or some other property.
Personally, I'd love to get the whole human crew in NECA style/scale. I have the old Aoshima Space-Suited generic figure (the face slightly looks like Kane, but I believe it just says "Nostromo Astronaut" on the box) from about 10 years ago, it's cool but a bit out of scale (too short) for any of the current Alien figures.
Ripley would sell. Especially if she came with the flamethrower, Jones and his cage. Ash would sell, especially with a bunch of alternate parts. Spacesuits would sell. Face-hugged Kane would sell. Chest-bursted Kane would sell. Parker, with some big gun and maybe the baby alien, would sell.I'm surprised they think they wouldn't sell.
