NECA Toys newly released Aliens Series 9 includes some highly requested characters and is one of the most impressive looking line-ups in the to-date. Series 9 includes Private Jenette Vasquez, Private Ricco Frost, and The Albino Alien that is a concept figure based on the original James Cameron screenplay.

Thank you to NECA Toys for providing Aliens Series 9 Private Ricco Frost Figure for review.

Private Ricco Frost – known as “Frosty” to his fellow Marines – comes to action figure form for the first time with the likeness of actor Ricco Ross. His detailed body armor features the same personalized touches as in the movie, and he’s packed with accessories: removable helmet, ammo bag, M240 Flamethrower, and pistol that fits in a functioning holster. Pvt. Frost has over 25 points of articulation.

Private Ricco Frost is based on his appearance in Aliens (1986) and features the likeness of Actor Ricco Ross. Private Vasquez stands at roughly 6″ tall and is sculpted in his marine uniform, body armor, a removable helmet, and detachable shoulder lamp. There is some hand painted writing on his uniform on the front and back along with his name “Frost” on his chest armor. His shirt and pants are painted in camouflage with some nicely detailed deco and tooling.

His chest and back are covered in body armor and the shoulder lamp attaches to the back and hand-painted mottos on the lower back and front of the armor. Over his chest and armor is a chest harness with a belt with pouches on both sides, and a holster for his pistol. Also included is a ammo bag with a strap that can be held over one shoulder, which is recommended to use the left shoulder as the lamp can hold the pouch and keep it from falling off. He is sculpted with open hands that can hold both the pistol and flamethrower. His boots are very nicely detailed right down from the shoe laces.

Private Ricco Frost’s articulation includes a ball-jointed neck, swivel-hinged shoulders, swivel-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, ball-socket torso, swivel waist, ball-jointed hips, double-hinged knees, swivel and rocker ankles, toe hinges.

Overall:

Private Ricco Frost is an excellent detailed figure with movie likeness and features that Aliens fans will love. The paint deco and tooling makes him one of the most detailed human characters to-date and NECA has done an incredible job bringing this character to plastic form.

Highly Recommended.
