NECA ALIEN Ripley Jumpsuit Figure Review

Jumpsuit Ripley

This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off.

"In space, no one can hear you scream....."

This is the figure that all ALIEN fans have been waiting for for such a long time. It is awesome to know that Randy Falk doesn't give up easily, and that he will aggressively pursue and try all avenues in order to get a figure made. If I were Sigourney Weaver I would be ecstatic about these figures. The sculpt and likeness is amazing. 


Jumpsuit Ripley comes in the standard ALIEN packaging that we are all accustomed to. The front shows the figure with the accompanying accessories and the back shows the other figures that are also available in this wave.


As I said before, the sculpt looks great. They got all of the facial details just right. From her hair, to eyes, nose, lips, zippers, the undershirt, creases and wrinkles in the jumpsuit, the patches on the arms, the watch, and the sneakers. From head to toe, this figure is amazingly detailed.


Jumpsuit Ripley comes with my favorites accessories from this wave. This version comes with the flamethrower. NECA puts in a lot of attention to the details on the weapons and accessories for their figures. This time is no exception. The flame thrower is spot on to the one in the movie. It comes with a strap. Details such as the worn red tank on it gives it a little pop. 

Of course, the BEST accessory is Jones the cat with his bright green eyes. While the Compression Suit Ripley came with the scared hissing version, this one comes with a more relaxed kitty. I have been Jonesing for a Jonsey for a long time so this makes me happy.


Personally, this is my favorite figure of this wave of ALIEN figures. This is the classic Ripley in my mind when I think about watching this movie as a kid. NECA did an excellent job with likeness of her face and made sure to add two awesome accessories. This is definitely one figure that you are not going to want to miss out on. And if you liked this Ripley a lot then just wait until you see the next one...
