NECA ALIEN 3 Video Game Dog Review


We received the video game City Hunter and the video game Dog Alien at the same time. I have to say it is hard for me to pick a favorite. They compliment each other extremely well. If you buy one then you have to buy the other! 

The original Dog Alien that came out a few months back was already my favorite Xenomorph that NECA had come out with up to this point (excluding the Queen, of course). This one just kicks it up a notch in a fun way. That is what is so fun about the retro video game line...we get to see these awesome paint apps that just make the figures pop! The figure is half blue and half brown so you can find all kinds of different ways to pose this guy when playing with or photographing him. This is strictly my personal opinion, but I LOVE the blue on this figure. Pictures are cool and all and fun to take, but you really need to get this in your hands to truly appreciate it. 


Any one who is familiar with the first Dog Alien knows how ridiculously poseable and articulated this guy is. Whether you want to stretch him out to nearly 11" tall or ball him up like he is ready to pounce you will find no shortage of fun poses. Your imagination is the limit.

Any one who was a fan of either the NES or SEGA versions of the ALIEN 3 game will want to have this. I have heard a few people say "I dunno, man. I'm not really into the Aliens." Well, my response to that is if you are going to buy one Alien then make it this one. You will not be disappointed, and most likely, you will find yourself buying more Xeno's in the future. Also, any collector of  the retro video game line HAS to have this to complete the collection. We all know that this movie sucked, but I can assure that the figure kicks ass!



The figure comes in the same sick packaging that the other retro video game figures come with. They no longer come with the shrink wrap (which is good because it lets you see the figure in the store) and comes with a flap with a velcro tab to keep it closed. The only accessory he comes with is the stand, but you don't anything more than that with this guy. The stand helps you find those perfect poses for this beast.

There is really only so much you can say about this guy. One of the funnest parts of collecting these to us is taking them out and letting our creative sides come out by photographing them. I can write all the words in the world about a figure, but the pictures speak for themselves. Just take a look below and you will see how sick this figure is. We like to open our figures here at CobraShadowJoes. I would encourage you all to do the same and free them...and ENJOY them! Photographing them is a not only fun, but a great stress reliever. As I said earlier, the possibilities are endless...you can pretty much do whatever you can imagine. 

Take a look below and let us know what you think. I promise you won't be disappointed with this figure. As we have become accustomed to, Randy Falk and the rest of the awesome crew at NECA Toys goes above and beyond to keep us hardcore fans happy, and for that we are extremely grateful.

As always, feel free to hit us up on Twitter @cobrashadowjoes and chat with us!
