Entertainment Weekly revealed NECA’s latest Aliens inspired figure and its awesome. Thinking outside the box like usual they gave director James Cameron his own Colonial Marines figure. I also believe this is the first James Cameron figure ever. The figure will be available via TheNecaStore.com and at Toys “R” Us stores. The full figure will be on display at SDCC later this week. It is expected to be available November.
The figure is 7 inches tall, has more than 25 points of articulation, features Cameron as he appeared during the filming of the 1986 science fiction sequel, and comes with a pistol, pulse rifle, tracking device, and viewfinder. The figure’s clothing is decorated with a Canadian flag shoulder patch and a Pandora planet patch as well as the logo of the “real” Cameron’s company, Lightstorm. This is the first time Cameron has allowed his likeness to be used for an action figure.
