Catching up on some news from the past few weeks, we have a fresh look at two upcoming NECA collectibles - a new Big Chap figure set and Runner Alien figure! Each of the new 7-inch scale figures were showcased at San Diego Comic-Con this year, along with the following images and descriptions:
Alien - 7" Scale Action Figure - Ultimate 40th Anniversary Big Chap
We’ve given a deluxe upgrade to the Xenomorph known to fans as “Big Chap,” with an all-new sculpt standing over 9” 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.
Also included are chestburster and facehugger accessories and—for the very first time—the 1979 egg, which has a tentacled base. Display-friendly window box packaging with opening flap.
Alien 3 – 7” Scale Action Figure – Ultimate Dog Alien
The canine Xenomorph has received the deluxe treatment, with an all-new sculpt featuring improved articulation (over 30 points!), including an extendable inner mouth and bendable tail. The Dog Alien is over 9” long, and comes with a coiled Queen burster with stand and a chestburster.
Display-friendly window box packaging with opening flap.
The Big Chap figure will ship out this November, while the Runner Alien figure will ship this October! Big thanks to Dark Nebula for sharing this news while I was away!
