Finally picked up Brett and Parker from FYE of all places, $25 each felt good after paying $30 for Ash at Wal-Mart.

I'm really hoping we'll get non spacesuit versions of Dallas, Kane, and Lambert.

Yeah, they need to finish up the Alien line with those three figures. We'll probably never get them.

Picked up Alien 40th Wave 4 at Target today. They had about 2 sets worth. The face printing on Ripley and Lambert look so good, even better than the first wave's. Much softer looking.

Not sure if it's just on mine, but they appear to have filled in the hole on the Compression Suit Ripley's harpoon gun, so you can't insert the pieces anymore. Might just need to stick a needle in to break something free, don't know.

In the new interview with Randy, he mentions having "All new sculpted" figures from the "Alien universe" that he can't show till possibly September. And if we "read between the lines" we'll know what he's talking about.

...What IS he talking about? Is there some new Alien thing coming that I'm out of the loop on? Some new comic or something?

Haven't thought about the NECA Aliens line in a fair minute. Figured I was done thinking about buying any more... but the pictures they showed today of the Night Cougar and Panther Aliens have me salivating. The black and red color scheme on the Night Panther is a thing of beauty and I'm thinking about picking it up to pair with my Big Red Predator...

Just when I think I'm out... they pull me back in.

What can you guys tell me about the Rhino NECA Alien? I don't collect this line and know nothing about it. I generally don't collect any movie figures but I was in Target, had a 25% off Target Circle coupon with nothing else to buy, saw this Rhino in a beat to hell box, and brought it home for around $25 with tax with the idea I might return it if I find out it's a crap figure from the group here.

I preordered Cosmic Legions and do have a nice Cosmic Marvel Legends collection, so my thought is that I could use a NECA Alien or two in a mixed line display.

I've generally heard bad things about NECA figures, unsure if they're true, just stuff like they fall apart over time and NECA doesn't make any figures I want anyway so I never bothered to research.

Will I be happy with this Rhino Alien as my first figure? Any others from the NECA Alien or any other Alien line I should consider that are fantastic and might work well with Cosmic Legions or Marvel Legends?

No, they don't fall apart over time. Whoever said that is probably a moron. I've got figures of theirs from when they were doing the Cult Classics, and those are twenty years old just about. The only thing that's fallen apart is anything that used clear plastic. And that's due to the nature of clear plastics, not NECA's fault.

But yes, the rhino's a pretty great figure. It's huge and has a nice bit of heft. You might find the removable dome feature frustrating, but you could always put a little elmer's glue to keep it in place without doing anything permanent. It's got enough articulation to actually stand upright too, though I wouldn't keep it that way without a stand or support. I really like him.

For any extras...depends on what you like the look of. There's a ton out there with lots of variety. Walmart has an exclusive set of "movie paint" versions of Arcade xenomorphs out right now. Those have some really crazy designs that would probably fit realy well with Cosmic Legions or Legends.

I’d say it depends. I’ve had several aliens break out of the box. Anything with clear/translucent joints will probably break eventually (my NECA Nightmare Before Christmas figures are all crumbling at the joints). But I think the Rhino does not have these; the only one I remember having them is the Mantis Xeno.
