NECA have just unveiled their official Alien: Covenant Alien action figure! Modeled after the film's antagonistic Xeno/Protomorph Alien, this figure mimics a lot of the other characteristics we've seen with previous NECA Alien figures. However, this one seems to be less skeletal and more muscular / fleshy looking, as many have pointed out since its debut in Covenant's trailers. This Alien figure also has blue vein-like detailing all over its body and the dorsal tubes, originally thought to be used for resin secretion (for hive building) seem to be more articulated than previous incarnations of the Xenomorph. Could these tubes have new purpose in Alien: Covenant? In this image they appear straight upwards while in the trailer, they fan out - almost like wings.

The cranium features a very similar human-like skull detailing behind the crest. Check it out:

The state of the Alien: Covenant sequel continues to remain uncertain. Ridley Scott has mentioned previously that they have a story already in place and know exactly where the sequel to Covenant will go, however the recent acquisition of 20th Century Fox film properties by Disney have potentially put the rumored-to-be-titled Alien: Awakening on hold for the time being. As new details arise concerning Alien: Covenant 2 we will be your premiere source and you can find information on the Covenant sequel by visiting the About Alien: Awakening page here.

The tubes on it's back seem way longer than in the the trailer. Am I missing something?

I was checking out another picture of the NECA Proto/Xenomorph yesterday and I really like how it's feet look more like elongated human feet and less animalistic like the feet of the Dog Alien or the Xeno from Alien Isolation. And it's hands are more human-like than ever, but it still has six fingers. Very cool design choice in my opinion.

It would be cool to see the carapace taken/ripped off of one in the movie to show the "skull" underneath.  I think many "regular" people (not us fanatics) do not even know that there is a skull underneath and would blow them away.

Normally I don't collect NECA figures anymore. But I may make an exception for this one.


Apr-27-2017 5:59 AM
