    Found this guy at my local TRU yesterday. None of that AVP crap, this is the ALIENS version, the real deal. :D 

    For $13, this is a terrific figure. Very posable, and the tail is wire framed, so you can pose it how you like. Highly recommended.

    I almost picked one of those up on Wednesday. Looks like I should've. Hope I can find one next time.

    Do you have to pull the inner jaw out manually, or does it come out via a slider or spring?

    I got the older version a while ago and his arm sheared off right out of the package.

    Pics on my blog

    Maybe I will pick up this newer one.

    You have to pull it out.

    I wonder if this is the 2nd and improved batch though, because the Chinese factory that Neca has a contract with really fucked them over with the previous few.

    Looks to have almost the exact level of articulation the McF version from a few years back had, but it looks a little more detailed/better..and the feet aren't in a retarded position. I passed on them the other day, but may have to pick up at least one or two. I bought like 5-6 of the McF one just because I was so excited to finally have such a detailed 6" Aliens Alien.

    Awesome pics, GogDog! I picked up the brown shaded verson from my local shop about a month for $16 and was pretty satisfied (though the strip that connnected the left wrist to the elbow on mine was unglued...not a major problem).

    If I see the blue shadded versions at a local TRU, I'll probably snag one up since I love the Aliens variation of the Giger design.

    Well, the sculptor (Tankman) did his best to capture every little detail of the original suits, while McFarlene went with heavy artistic freedom, especially in the legs. I think it's a bit better articulated too, enough to count at least.

    $13?!?! These used to be $18 elsewhere.

    Holy crap I gotta go to TRU!

    What are the prices on the NECA ALIEN and their AVP:R figures? I really want to get the cloaked AVP:R Predator figure.

    I have this too, and it's a great figure. I also have the Alien (original movie) version, wich is equally nice. Very nice articulation and scult on both, and beside a problem with my first original Alien (feet broke off due to paint and very bad arm QC problem), they are awesome figure overall.

    I have the AVP trio too (Alien, Predalien and Predator), but the Alien is more limited with shoulder articulation, and Predalien is even worst with no elbow, no knee and no feet articulation. Both are kinda floppy too, loose joints on Alien and ball joint that pop off easily on Predalien. But they do look good once posed

    Wait so there's a blue AND a brown version of the NECA ALIENS Warrior Alien figure?

    Pics?

    Any other variants that they did for any NECA Alien or Predator toys?

    I have no pics, nor do I know of other variants. I read about two versions, and def could tell the difference in the store.

    That does look cool but after a bad QC experience with the NECA original Alien I think I'll pass. :(

    I picked up one of these, I have all the NECA Aliens and Predotor figures, also McFarlane. This one dominates. By far one of my favorites in my collection.
    Here are some shots of it I took:
