Today NECA revealed a new collectible for the Aliens film, and it’s for a character who has never been featured before. That’s because this character is none other than the film’s Director — James Cameron.
For the first time in his career Cameron has allowed a company to license his image, so this is no small news for the toy collecting community. The figure stands 7-inches tall, has 25 points of articulation, and is styled after Cameron’s look back in the 80’s. This figure isn’t just James as a Director though, he’s styled after the space marines featured in Aliens.
He comes with a gun, a clap board, some sort of viewfinder necklace he wore as a Director, and a tracker. The figure can be pre-ordered now through the NECA online store. He will ship this November. You can check out the official description of the figure below.
Director James Cameron joins the Aliens universe as an action figure! The first-ever action figure featuring his likeness is a tribute to the process of creating the movie Aliens as well as the director himself. USCM Colonel Cameron becomes the highest-ranking officer in the Aliens movie universe.
The 7″ scale figure has over 25 points of articulation and features the likeness of James Cameron as he appeared during the filming of Aliens. There are a few fun Easter eggs relating to the director hidden on the figure itself: a Canadian flag shoulder patch, the Lightstorm logo, and a Pandora planet patch.
The figure comes with pistol, pulse rifle, and tracking device, plus two “behind-the-scenes” accessories: a replica clapboard and the viewfinder Cameron wore around his neck while filming for setting up shots.
