They’ve nailed Sigourney Weaver’s likeness (image via Figures.com, who have more pics), but the chance to own a dismembered Lance Henriksen? PRICELESS.

Series 5 will debut with:

Ellen Ripley – As seen in Aliens w Flamethrower/Pulse Rifle combo

Bishop (Torn in Half) – Packed with an Open Egg and Facehugger w/ Bendable Tail

Genocide Warrior (Red)

Genocide Warrior (Black)

The Genocide warriors are repacks on single cards – you may remember my review of the two-pack.

Sadly, Ian Holm has never granted likeness rights, so Ash’s head will probably not happen. Nor John Hurt with busted-open chest. So cheers to Lance, whose violent death in plastic will not be in vain. We should see pictures this weekend at Toy Fair.
