NECA Toys Arcade Appearance Aliens Xenomorph Warrior Review

NECA Toys Arcade Appearance Xeno Warrior
Regular readers of our website know that we are huge fans of the video game appearance style figures by NECA Toys. What started with a one off SDCC exclusive NES-style Jason Voorhees figure has blossomed into a wildly popular line for NECA. One of my favorite VGA figures up to this point was the blue and brown Dog Alien. This Warrior which is based off the 1990 arcade game is right up there with it in my mind. Let's take a closer look at what makes this figure so great.


Pros
  • New Alien Warrior body and articulation
  • Awesome VGA-style paint job
  • Lots of accessories
  • Collector friendly window box packaging
Cons
  • Mine had some dried glue spots on the back, but was an easy was fix
Packaging
Like I mentioned before, this figure comes in a collector friendly window box just like the rest of the figures in the VGA and Ultimate lines do. I love the window boxes for many reasons. The art on them is great, they are resealable, and are easy to store.

Figure
The very first thing you will notice about this figure is its amazing bright pink and purple paint job just like it looks in the arcade game. The next thing you will notice is that this figure has all new articulation. As usual NECA is continuing to improve upon their already great products. The new articulation makes it all that much easier to pose, photograph, and play with this figure. Lastly, this figure does not skimp on the accessories. It comes with a Xeno egg, a facehugger, and a chestburster all in the arcade style paint scheme.

Overall
I am extremely happy with the all-new articulation on this figure. All of the extra accessories make this figure worth every bit of the $25 it costs. Whether you are a diehard ALIENS fan or just a fan of the NECA VGA action figures you will be more than pleased with this figure. If you have not picked this one up yet I would definitely do so. Check out our pictures and let us know what you think of the figure.

  1. what are the new articulations it has? I'm looking at your blue variant xenomorph warrior side by side the arcade xeno and I can't tell the difference.

    1. Hands and feet have articulation. Also, I'm not sure if these are made with a different plastic but these are extremely sturdy and much, much easier to stand and pose. No loose legs or hips.

    2. http://www.angelfire.com/mech/jinsaotome/Blog/alienw9.JPG The older one already had articulated toes. What else is new other than the digits? The body seems to be the same
