At San Diego comic-Con 2016, the team at Super 7 will have an Alien Warrior 18″ Prototype Figure as an exclusive. This figure, a faux prototype for a Kenner style Alien Warrior for the 1986 Aliens film. It is meant to resemble the original Kenner 18″ Big Chap Alien and features a faux mock up packaging, with hand written notes and more. Here’s more info from Super 7:
In 1979, Kenner released an 18-inch Alien for the ALIEN film. That toy has since become one of the most sought after ALIEN collectibles. As an exclusive for San Diego Comic-Con 2016, Super7 is unleashing the 18-inch Super Size Alien Warrior Prototype from the 1986 sequel ALIENS!
The Alien Warrior figure never existed in prototype form in 1986. The backstory is that this piece is a prototype sample of the Alien Warrior for “internal review”. The packaging is a prototype package, modeled after the Alien ReAction Figures 2-Pack from 2013. The package is meant to be a mock-up, with hand-written notes about what is approved, needs to be changed, or filled in during the production process. While the original Kenner 3.75” Alien action figures were genuinely created and cancelled in the late-70s, and rescued by Super7 for ReAction Figures, the Super Size Alien Warrior is a “what-if” figure.
No one made what we wanted, so we made it ourselves!
The Alien Warrior measures 18-inches and matches the features of the original 1979 Kenner Alien. It is articulated at the hips, shoulders, wrists, and tail, and has the same spring-loaded jaw mechanism to release the horrifying inner jaws, operated with a trigger on the back of the head. The figure can also hang from its tail just like the original.
The figure is priced at $195. It will be available at Super 7’s off site store, Skeletor’s Lair, during San Diego Comic-Con 2016. Details on how to gain access to Skeletor’s Lair can be found by Clicking Here. You can check out the photos after the jump.
