ALIENS Go Clubbing With NECA
Packed in with Series 11 and Series 12, Club members will find a very special chapter of Alien collectibles history. The 3-D pop-up Space Base playset was exclusive to the UK with certain Kenner action figures in the mid 1990s. Now, 20 years later, we are bringing this back just for the Club, and we have increased the size of the set to be in scale with our 7” Aliens action figures.Each of the 6 pieces we’ve replicated was a different “zone” of the base, like the Lab Area or Main Control Deck, and each had part of a running story on the back. When fully, assembled the Space Base extends over 3 feet in length and is 11” tall. Three of the pieces will be included with Series 11, and three with Series 12 as part of our effort to reward the loyalty of the completionists enrolling in NECA CLUB x ALIEN!
To sign up, you just have to buy the upcoming ‘ALIENS’ Series 11 figures through the NECA Club x ALIEN website, and you will be automatically notified once the next figures are available for purchase. Remember though, you have to buy all 7″ scale ‘ALIENS’ figures released via the NECA Club x ALIEN website in order to get the exclusive figure. The 2017 program begins with Aliens Series 11, and will include a total of approximately 13 figures.

All Aboard The Pork Chop Express
“Honey, I never drive faster than I can see. Besides that, it’s all in the reflexes”We’re proud to introduce an all-new sixth scale tribute to the legendary Jack Burton!
Played by Kurt Russell in the cult classic movie Big Trouble in Little China, Jack Burton is a fast talking truck driver who spends his days and nights traveling the highways, ranting his cool-guy mantras into his CB Radio while hauling hogs in his big rig – The Porkchop Express. But, after winning a bet to his buddy Wang Chi, and facing off against the merciless street gang, The Lords of Death, this witless (but kinda charming) lunkhead finds himself caught up in a shadowy underworld of nefarious plots, ancient spirits, immortal villains and mystical forces. Joining up with a team of wizards and warriors, and armed with little more than his trusty knife and a winning smile, Jack sets out to rescue the girls (and his truck!) and defeat the evil magician Lo Pan – and look damn good while doing it!
John Carpenter’s Big Trouble in Little China and its hapless hero Jack Burton have a very special place in our hearts here at Sideshow. Our new sixth scale figure is more than a piece of nostalgia to us; it’s a loving homage to one of the funniest and most endearing action heroes of a generation!
Our new limited-edition Jack Burton figure raises the bar yet again for the possibilities of the sixth scale format. Featuring a super-lifelike portrait of Kurt Russell in all of his mid-eighties glory, including a lovingly sculpted rendition of his magnificent mullet!
From the laces on his custom leather boots to the creases to the weathering on those sweet eighties blue jeans – each part of his wardrobe has been recreated for supreme movie-accuracy. We’ve also produced miniature versions of the weapons that Jack uses to great (and unintentionally hilarious) effect while battling Lo Pan and his minions. Check out the attention to detail on his tiny semi-auto pistol and his boot knife. We’ve captured every minuscule detail on this 12” figure–even recreating the tiny stitching on his leather watch cuff! Jack is also outfitted with multiple hand configurations (fists, relaxed hands, gun hand and knife hand) for optimum pose-ability.
“Oh my God, no! Please! What is that? Don’t tell me!”
If this just wasn’t enough awesomeness for you, we’ve also created a miniature version of one of our favorite creatures from the movie – the floating eyeball monster known simply as “The Guardian”. This highly detailed sculpt of this weird and wonderful wandering monster is supplied with a “floating” support, allowing him to be displayed next to Jack.
The perfect addition to any horror or movie memorabilia collection, and an awesome gift for any Big Trouble in Little China fan, this is one sixth scale figure you don’t want to miss!
The Jack Burton Sixth Scale Figure specially features:
- A detailed likeness of Kurt Russell as Jack Burton
- Fabric costume, including Jack’s iconic printed tank top, denim jacket, and jeans
- One (1) pair of sculpted boots
- Three (3) sets of interchangeable hands including:
- - One (1) set of fists
- - One (1) set of relaxed hands
- - One (1) right hand for holding gun
- - One (1) left hand for holding knife
- Submachine gun
- Detailed Guardian companion accessory with floating support arm
Sideshow Toys 1:6 scale Jack Burton is set to release in the first quarter of 2018 with a retail price of $239.99. Preorder yours from Sideshow collectibles today!
