For everyone who couldn’t make it to SDCC this year and was butt hurt you missed out on Newt, here is your second chance. NECA was kind enough to offer a Ripley and Newt 2-pack. I really want to thank NECA for this one. A lot goes into negotiating licensing rights and what nots. Randy over at NECA goes above and beyond. Whenever there is buzz on social media about an exclusive being hot, he immediately looks for ways to get it to more collectors and fans.
Newt will not come with all the accessories that she does in the SDCC Exclusive. You will miss out on Hick’s helmet but I am sure if you got Hicks already you will have nothing to worry about.
From NECA’s Facebook page:
Continuing the Aliens 30th anniversary celebration, #NECA presents a special edition action figure 2-pack that recreates the movie’s classic poster! That iconic image of Ripley rescuing Newt appears on the front flap of the deluxe packaging; open the flap and the figures are posed in the box just as they appear on the poster.
#Ripley stands approximately 7” tall and features a new head sculpt and new deco, both exclusive to this set. She comes with a flamethrower accessory that has a special “fire effect” attachment. #Newtstands approximately 5” tall. Both feature authorized likenesses and have over 25 points of articulation for dramatic poses. A great display piece both in and out of the box! Starts shipping out to retailers November 2016!
