Being a huge Alien fan, as well as a collector, I am constantly trying to find the NECA line of Aliens action figures in stores, but my options are quite limited. Besides Toys R Us, I do not really have any other options as far as walking into a store and finding them. Or, I should say I can find older figures here and there but no Xenomorphs, those are long gone. Thankfully, NECA listens to their fans, and they have a solution.
Recently announced, they are starting a new subscription service called Club x Alien. Basically, they have the figures you want, you have the money, and you need each other. From their subscription page:
What is NECA CLUB x ALIEN?
It’s a new loyalty program offering huge perks to NECA’s most loyal Alien action figure fans! Each year, buy every 7” scale NECA Alien action figure that we release on the NECA CLUB x ALIEN website, and you’re eligible for a year-end, 100% exclusive figure… and along the way, we’ll throw in a few awesome bonuses, also 100% exclusive to the club. The 2017 program begins with Aliens Series 11, and will include a total of approximately 13 figures.
If you buy NECA Alien figures already, this is a no-brainer. You were going to buy these figures anyway, and some of the exclusive items are going to be freaking awesome. These will also be shipped directly from NECA, before they hit stores. There are also no additional club fees. Not to mention access to con exclusives and a year-end exclusive figure for club members only. As for bonuses: the first one has been shown off. A totally awesome recreation of the previously UK exclusive Kenner Aliens diorama! Fully recreated, it is scaled to their 7-inch line of figures as well. One piece will be included with each of the three figures from Wave 11 and 12 of figures.
Between all of the possible pack-ins, early access, and not having to leave my house to find figures anymore, I will be doing this for sure. For more information, click here for the FAQ. Down below, find some shots of the first wave of figures from Alien Wave 11, including an Xenomorph from the current Dark Horse comic series Defiance and the first ever authorized likeness Joan Lambert figure.
