The villain of Aliens is slimy monster hell-bent on impregnating Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley and Carrie Henn’s Newt with extraterrestrial eggs. We refer, of course, not to the Alien Queen but to Paul Reiser’s corporate sleazeball, Carter Burke. Now, more than three decades after the release of James Cameron’s science fiction classic, the Weyland-Yutani executive is finally getting his own action figure, and Reiser could not be happier.
“Officially an action figure,” the Mad About You star tweeted, after collectibles company NECA made the announcement. “Never been prouder.”
Proud Reiser may be. Limber? Not so much.
“I’m told my Burke action figure has 118 ‘points of articulation,'” the actor wrote in a follow-up tweet. “Which is great because in real life, I myself have 9.”
The Burke action figure is released in October. Watch a scene from Aliens featuring Reiser and Weaver, above.
