It’s no secret that I’m a fan of the vintage Kenner Aliens line. One of those odd throwbacks to an age when violent, R-rated movies were turned into kid-friendly toy lines, it featured incredibly imaginative variations on the classic xenomorph if they’d gestated into various non-human species and incorporated their DNA.
NECA has done a great job of recreating those early 90’s designs in their previous homages to those toys of yesteryear, and the newly-revealed Rhino Alien is no exception. It is an incredible update to a figure that I loved for being kind of silly, and NECA has turned it into a figure that is truly monstrous and horrific-looking.
Details such as price point, points of articulation, and an exact release date are yet to be revealed, but expect these beast to drop early 2020. And I, for one, cannot wait.
Stay frosty, everyone.
