Ripley is ready to take down aliens in NECA Aliens Wave 5

NECA Aliens - Bishop ripped apart closeI’ve said it before, ‘Aliens‘ is one of my all-time favorite movies and I’m thrilled that NECA has done such a great job with the license. Four waves in now and we finally get the main hero Ellen Ripley after Sigourney Weaver signed off on her likeness. Additionally, we get a ripped in half Bishop after the Alien Queen dismembers him, an Xenomorph egg/facehugger set and Xenomorph aliens in both black and red. The wave is set for a July release.

I’m glad we’re finally getting my preferred version of Ripley and the Bishop variant is cool and all, but I’m really hoping the next wave starts knocking out a few more of the Colonial Marines like Vasquez, Apone, Drake, Frost and Gorman and the other key supporting characters like Burke and Newt.
