For Day 7 of my post-Christmas Review, I’ll be taking a look at another figure from the first wave of Funko’s Alien ReAction line. For the details of how this line came to be, go ahead and read up about it in my review of Ripley.
Today, I’ll be looking at the Alien’s first true victim, Kane.
THE FIGURE ITSELF
Kane was part of the first wave of the Alien ReAction series. Kane has a few looks over the course of the film, but they decided to depict him in his space suit from the scenes where the crew explores the planet. It’s probably the best choice for a character like Kane, as most of his key scenes occur on the planet surface. Kane stands 3 ¾ inches tall and has 5 points of articulation. Kane probably has the best sculpt in the line, and it’s a pretty good sculpt even by today’s standards. The suit has texturing on pretty much every surface of the figure, which is certainly impressive. While the facial likeness isn’t anything amazing, I was actually surprised by how much of John Hurt I could see in it, which is really neat. The paint is once again on the simple side, but it does its job, and looks appropriate to what the figure’s going for. Kane’s only real accessory is his removable helmet, which is really cool. It clicks on well and stays in place without much issue.
THE ME HALF OF THE EQUATION
Like with Ripley and Dallas, Kane was a gift from my super awesome parents. He’s definitely a top contender for best in the wave, and he’s just a lot of fun in general. I’m hopeful that Funko decides to continue the line so that we can get Lambert and Dallas in their accompanying space suits. I feel like Kane’s a figure that you could enjoy even if you aren’t a big fan of the style.
