9″ Alien Coming This Month!

NECA's Alien (click to see it bigger!)The xenomorph from Ridley Scott’s Alien has seen many incarnations throughout the years from several toymakers. Some have been good, some OK, but none really did justice to H.R. Giger’s killing machine.

Like with many other licenses, NECA has stepped up to the plate and is promising to deliver the “first figure that truly captures the nightmarish essence of H.R. Giger’s iconic creature design” this May. Seeing that their track record is pretty damn good with bringing the goods, I’ll hold them to it.

This new Alien will be part of the 7″ series of toys the company usually puts out, but in fact, the Kane-spawned beast will really be 9″ tall with 20 points of articulation. On top of that good news, there will also be an 18″ version of the xenomorph sometime in the future. Pictures of the big guy will be up on Friday, but for now we’ve got plenty of the little dude below and even more in our NYCC photo gallery!

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.
