One of the toughest characters from the Alien franchise, Colonial Marine Private First Class Jenette Vasquez (Jenette Goldstein) from 1986's Aliens is being honored in a new figure from NECA that was originally revealed on Alien Day and has now been teased in additional photos.

Actress Jenette Goldstein, who portrayed Smartgun operator Private Vasquez in Aliens, fittingly unveiled new photos of NECA's figure on Twitter. Fans can take a look at these photos below, as well as earlier images revealed by NECA to celebrate the first ever Alien Day earlier this week.

This summer marks the 30th anniversary of James Cameron's Aliens, and NECA plans to celebrate by releasing new collectibles, including the Private Vasquez figure as well as a figure of Newt (Carrie Henn), the young survivor found by Ellen Ripley and the Colonial Marines on the moon LV-426.

This Private Vasquez collectible is scheduled for an August release, and we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details and photos are revealed. Until then, "let's rock!"
