In 1979, a nearly 2 foot tall Alien action figure appeared on toy store shelves, kicking off global excitement for the Alien film franchise and its numerous toy tie-ins. Now, 35 years later, Diamond Select Toys has created a San Diego Comic-Con 2015 Exclusive 2 inch Minimates mini figure of the Alien Xenomorph “Big Chap” that pays tribute to that classic Popy action figure (and its packaging). Contained in a classically styled full color window box, this single packed “1979 Retro” Alien Minimate features 16 points of articulation and fully interchangeable parts, as well as a translucent skull dome with glow in the dark skull – just like the original toy! As an added bonus, the Alien’s teeth glow too.
Designed by Art Asylum, this fantastic San Diego Comic-Con 2015 Exclusive “1979 Retro” Alien Minimate mini figure can be purchased at the Action Figure Xpress’ SDCC booth #3345 for just $7 each. And for those of us unable to attending Comic-Con this year, you can purchase the Big Chap Minimate at the AFX online store.
