NECA Introduces “Cinemachines” With Alien Movies’ Mini-Vehicles



The Aliens Drop Ship and APC, and the Alien Space Jockey and Space Jockey Ship, have long been requested as toys. You may have to keep waiting for toys ¬†of them that are in-scale to 7-inch figures, but if you’re good with versions that are slightly bigger than Micro Machines – at around 6 inches tall – NECA is making them happen, and is planning on many more fan-favorite vehicles down the line.


I’m not sure 6 inches will be quite enough for fans who had more nefarious purposes in mind for the Giger designs – but the drop ship does launch a mini APC, and there are certainly possibilities there.



The space jockey doesn’t seem to have an exploding stomach. Interchangeable chestplates, maybe?
