Alien – Ripley in Spacesuit 40th Anniversary Pop! Vinyl Figure
In space, no one can hear you scream… but here on Earth they’ll hear every Alien fan scream with joy with the release of Funko’s new Alien Pop! Vinyl Figures.
Can you believe it’s been 40 years since Ripley and the crew of the Nostromo were terrorised by the eponymous Xenomorph Alien?! I mean before we know it, we’ll too have been floating through space for 57 years, however unfortunately for us, Paul Reiser probably won’t be there waiting for us.
Regardless, it’s no wonder Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic has gone on to become one of the most iconic sci-fi horror films of all time, spawning countless sequels/prequels, video games, comics and more. The film follows the story of the crew of the commercial space tug Nostromo, who are awoken from their hibernation by the ship’s computer, Mother, when it receives a transmission from a nearby moon. When they investigate, they come across a derelict alien ship and discover a breeding ground filled with giant alien eggs. It’s only bad news from there…
This wave features both the dreaded Alien Xenomorph and the heroine, Ripley. This is an updated version from previous Xenomorph Pop! Vinyl Figures, with a new translucent head that showcases the skull within. Luckily we’ve got Ripley around to kick some Alien ass, who comes complete in her spacesuit from the film.
I won’t lie, I can’t guarantee that this new Xenomorph won’t wreak havoc on the rest of your Funko collection, but if you ask me, that’s more than enough reason to also get the new Ripley Pop! to keep it at bay. Make sure you order them both today before Ripley send this Xenomorph into space as well!
