When I saw the S.H. MonsterArts Aliens vs. Predators figures at NYCC, I was hoping Bandai had more of those movie franchises licensed. And they do! They’ve revealed the one that started it all, the Big Chap from Alien. Super-articulated (the tail has 18 individual segments) and using some die-cast, this should be some real hand candy for Aliens fans.
Due out this summer in June, the MSRP is $53.99. In space, no one can hear you scream.
S.H. MonsterArts Alien Big Chap
June 2014 MSRP $53.99
Thirty-five years after the original Alien motion picture, Tamashii Nations is proud to announce its next ambitious S.H.MonsterArts project with the S.H.MonsterArts Big Chap action figure. Developed from the ground up to replicate poses from the Alien film the overall style dictated by the long arms and legs of the actor inside the suit, and the finely detailed sculpting of the suit itself as designed by Geiger, are replicated in the product in exquisite detail. Big Chap’s distinctive translucent head carapace is rendered with a separately-molded semi-translucent part, allowing the precision-sculpted skull beneath to show through. The bone-like tail is built from 18 individually jointed segments for enhanced detail and the tip employs die-cast metal for enhanced weight and realism. Figure set also features interchangeable hand parts and special display stand.
