Per Hollywoodreporter:

Never heard of Alien Day? Well, get ready, because it's coming April 26.

Reebok Alien Stompers, the shoes worn by Sigourney Weaver in the 1980s classic Aliens, are coming back to planet Earth.

As part of Alien Day, which is intended to be akin to Back to the Future Day and Star Wars’ May the 4th, Fox is unveiling a slew ofAlien-related merchandise coinciding with April 26. (The date is connected to the planet known as LV-426, which is key to Alienlore.)

Reebok is releasing an exact replica of the Alien high-top Stompers worn by Weaver as Ellen Ripley. Also being released is the mid-top version worn by Lance Henriksen as the android Bishop. The sneakers will be available beginning April 26 at Reebok.com and select Reebok stores worldwide.

The Stompers hold a unique place in movie history. The shoes were made by the company specifically for the James Cameron film and became, along with Back to the Future’s Nike Air Mag, some of cinema’s most famous footwear.

Reebok released a version of the shoe a year after the movie opened, but only for a limited time. The shoes have enjoyed a revival in recent years, with cosplayers making their own and certain shops creating custom versions.

Most iterations were not the high-top model but the mid-top, making the new shoes faithful to what was seen onscreen.

As part of Alien Day, certain Alamo theater locations are showing a double feature of Alien and Aliens, and Amazon’s Audible will release a brand-new audio drama, Alien: Out of the Shadows, starring Rutger Hauer, the '80s actor best known for starring in Blade Runner. Among other activities planned is an online trivia challenge in which movie fans can win prizes every 42.6 minutes on Twitter.

Hey no probs :) it was just I saw this thread below, is it not related to this alien day? :(

Yes, it is,but I don't think these are "Pops"...I think they'll be part of the "Reaction" series http://funko.com/collections/reaction, based on the info in main Alien Day thread. It specifically mentions the Reaction series, so I will edit out the "POP" part from Sigill's thread to prevent confusion.
