New Aliens figures includes Cpl. Dwayne Hicks, Private Hudson and a brand new Warrior Alien!

One of our most anticipated action figure series ever, our new Aliens line is set for release in Spring 2013!

The feedback has already been incredible on these figures, and as we get ready to unleash the debut of what’s hopefully a very long Aliens line, we’re happy to keep giving fans an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the figures in progress. Let’s start with Hudson and Hicks.

Hudson and Hicks Behind the Scenes

Both Hicks (Michael Biehn, who was also Kyle Reese) and Hudson (Bill Paxton) will be available in different versions with variant heads and accessories. As our own Randy Falk tweets below, they won’t all be released at the same time:
