Randy Falk from NECA tweeted a couple of test shot photos showing off the upcoming NECA Aliens Queen Xenomorph and Alien 3 Dog Alien action figures. These are different from the prototypes, which are the original sculpts. While these are unpainted, they are made of plastic in the proper scale to make sure the types of plastic used are correct and that all the joints work. Once these are approved, then they’ll be painted during mass production. In the photos, you can also catch glimpses of test shots for Bishop, Dallas, and Kane as well. Things could change, but the NECA Aliens Queen should be out sometime in October, along with series three of the NECA Aliens line, which will include the Alien 3 Dog Alien, Kane from Alien, and Bishop from Aliens.

For those who haven’t heard by now, Mattel announced on their Facebook page the other day that the once thought dead DC Universe Classics Doomsday Unleashed figure in fact being released towards the end of this year. This came on the heels of some leaked packaged photos of the Doomsday Unleashed figure that Mattel wrote off as old packaged samples that the fans were never supposed to see. Apparently this was some misdirection until the official announcement, which is stirring some controversy amongst collectors. Many are feeling cheated for “having to buy” the Containment Suit Doomsday figure, thinking it would be the only one ever made. Me personally, I would have bought that version regardless, because when it comes to DC (especially DC Universe Classics), I’m all in, and I couldn’t be more excited about Doomsday Unleashed.

I know this isn’t toy news, but it’s so within the realm of what I do that I couldn’t resist posting about it. Yesterday, Zack Snyder posted a teaser image of the new Batmobile for the upcoming Batman VS. Superman movie. The car was covered in a tarp, and all you could make out was the vague shape and see the back wheels. Well, today Zack Snyder released a full image of the new Batmobile, and Ben Affleck in the new Batsuit! The image is very moody, and much is in shadow. However, I have taken the image adjusted the levels to make it brighter so you can make out more detail. Both the original image, and my adjusted one, are in HD for your viewing pleasure.

Confused about what “Creatureplicas” is? Well don’t worry, you might not be alone. Creatureplica is a brand new toy company formed in part by veteran toy sculptor Jean St. Jean. If you collect adult aimed collector figures, chances are you own his work. The whole goal of Creatureplica is to bring about a new line of highly detailed action figures based on mythological and urban legendary cryptids, such as werewolves, and Bigfoot.
