I recently found Call, portrayed by Winona Rider in Alien: Resurrection (1997), at a Half Price Books store. Made by Hasbro (still with the Kenner brand on the box -- Hasbro bought Kenner and its licenses in 1991), this was from Hasbro's "Signature Series." Unfortunately, they didn't also have Ripley, so the only Lt. Ripley I have is the small 1992 Kenner figure that looks nothing like Sigourney Weaver. Rider's likeness in this figure isn't bad, and I much prefer the larger size. The box is pretty beat up, but since she won't be in it for long, who cares?
I'll be on the lookout for the Ripley figure from this series that has a much better likeness to Weaver (and is taller).
Last Wednesday, I also picked up Crime Syndicate Superwoman at my local comics shop.
This DC Collectibles figure is quite an attractive sculpt and paint.
The face in particular is awesome. Her blue eyes are rather piercing,
and they and her mouth were painted with a glossy paint so they have a
wet shine. She's also wearing high-heeled boots, so it should be
interesting to see how well she stands up out of the box. Which poses
the question: as (essentially) Wonder Woman's evil twin from an
alternate dimension, does she go on the Wonder Woman shelf, or with the
other DC figures? Leaning strongly toward "other."
another female figure in with the Super-Villains Crime Syndicate set.
Atomica, a small unarticulated figure, comes with Johnny Quick, but I am
not paying $25 for Quick when all I want is the little 2-inch Atomica.
