This year marks the 35th anniversary of Ridley’s Scott’s Alien, and to celebrate the occasion, Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products will release a new range of merchandise, comic books, video games, and the first ever Ellen Ripley action figure.
The initial plan includes Ripley in her Nostromo jumpsuit from the original 1979 Alien movie. NECA will also be releasing action figures of the Power Loader, Bishop and Kane with a facehugger attached to his face.
“As we celebrate the 35th anniversary of one of the most successful film franchises of all time, we are thrilled to introduce an array of commemorative products across different categories in partnership with iconic brands including NECA, SEGA and many more,” Jeffrey Godsick, president of Fox Consumer Products, said about the merchandising blitz.
Prototypes will debut this summer at San Diego Comic-Con.

I can’t believe Ripley never had an action figure?! I bet Sigourney Weaver will be chuffed!
Right. I can’t believe it took this long to release one. She probably is.
