This weekend saw the first in-packaging photos released for the Alien 40th Anniversary – 1/4 Scale Big Chap Alien Figure from NECA Toys. The packaging pays homage to the 1979 Alien figure from Kenner. The figure has upgraded articulation, and a new sculpt. It will stand 22″ tall. Look for the figure to be released in November. You can check out the photos after the jump.
Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the original 1979 movie that shocked audiences and jump-started a legendary film franchise!
We’ve given a deluxe upgrade to the Xenomorph known to fans as “Big Chap,” with an all-new sculpt standing over 22” tall. It has a hinged jaw that opens, revealing an inner mouth that extends for realistic movie action. It has over 30 points of articulation, including double knee joints and a bendable tail, and extra attention has been paid to all the eerie details that made H.R. Giger’s designs for Alien so mesmerizing.
The packaging is a special tribute to the 1979 Kenner Alien figure!
