SDCC 2019 – NECA Reveals Big Chap, Dog Alien Figures

San Diego Comic-Con 2019 has come to a close this weekend and NECA showcased some new figures in the world of Alien and Predator. They formally announced three new Alien figures. Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Alien, we have an Alien Ultimate 40th Anniversary Big Chap 9″ figure which NECA have given a deluxe upgrade to with a brand new sculpt. It also comes with Facehugger, Chestburster and Alien Egg accessories.

Following on from that figure, NECA will be releasing yet another 1/4 Scale Big Chap with a brand new sculpt. The Xenomorph stands at 22″ and comes in Kenner-style packaging. The Big Chap was previously released back in 2008 and then again in 2015. Both of these new Big Chap figures will be released around November 2019.

    So excited about the Alien: Resurrection line.
    Had a thought, Neca should make a Ripley Clones accessory pack - bit like the Facehuggers in the stasis tubes - but with the failed Ripley clones (such a creepy but emotional scene)

    My A:R Warrior arrived!!

    Damn it, I should've posted it then. Neca had a fan convention thingy where they met the fans, talked stuff and there they also first announced that they're making the Kenner Rhino Alien. At the end they said they're making a big Alien corridor diorama piece, like the size of the turtle building they done recently.

    That sounds amazing - I believe you can't have too many diorama pieces (I should know as I'm working on some home-made ones to go with my Aliens and Predator pieces - plus planning on creating a fan-made story to share for fellow fans, probably make it an online photocomic)

    I haven't seen anything. I know I had seen someone ask about an APC monitor section/crew area and got the sort of vague "possibly" on twitter.

    I'd imagine they're at least think of a Alien or Aliens diorama piece considering the Predator 2 stuff sold well, and it looks like the AVP pillar sold decently enough.
  6. Still Collating...
    To be fair:

    The AR queen was a repaint, sans mouth tendons.
    Putting her on her back would turn her into a diorama, not a Super Sexy Action Figure
    Yeah but I have the 'Aliens' Queen action figure for that.

    It's NECA we're talking about. They never go the extra mile when it's expected of them and they should, but always do when it's something random nobody ever expected.  :laugh:
  7. Gilfryd
    I'd care more about the Resurrection Queen if it wasn't just a straight repaint. Like, the Queen in the movie at no point stands up like that (I mean, unless you count when Perez is looking at it through the glass and you kinda see part of its head). If it had been retooled to be flipped over on its back with the massive "pregnancy" belly, I'd be way more interested.
    Maybe they'll go nuts and do egg sac versions of both Queens somewhere down the line.
  8. Jenga
    This big 2019 big chap is so disappointing! The old sculpt was never as good as it should have been and this news was exciting until the pictures came and it's essentially the same bad/inaccurate sculpt with only a few minor changes. They should have started from ground zero on this one.

    They've also got an Ultimate Runner on show too.

    *sat here patiently waiting for my Bull Alien*
    Awesome awesome awesome.

    And yeah, I’m pretty sure the bull alien is the first alien figure I ever got.  Special place in my heart.  I actually thought the new rhino fig was the bull at first and was a little disappointed when I zoomed in.
    the bull was my first. My brother got the queen a year before. I had the choice between the bull and the mantis.

    The Bull was my first too. That's why I'm so keen on seeing NECA's take on it. I still remember finding it at a stall in an indoor market in my early teens. I still have it. Was going through one of my boxes of Alien/Predator stuff in preparation for my move and was glad to see it still in there.

    The dome looks a different shape to the 2015 release. The air-brushed detailing, the length of the skull, (under the dome) is a definite improvement.

    EDIT: Had another look at the images. The head and dome do look identical to the previous release - but improved by more detailed paint work. 
  12. Still Collating...
    I might be wrong, but I'm almost certain that the head sculpt is the exact same as the last version, just different dome coloring, depending on what version (there were two variants in 2015), the lips may be different.
  13. Elmazalman
    Pass. The new 2019 sculpt ( 22” Big Chap) is almost identical to the 2015 reissue. The head sculpt looks different for this new 2019 version? I’m happy enough with the 2015 release.

    At LFCC Summer 2019 I have finaly picked up the Alien Vs Predator Arcade Game - Razor Claws and Arachnoid Xenomorphs - brilliant sculpts but I have started to repaint them in film colours (all the better to go with the rest of the hive), the Snake Xeno (I will only repaint the green parts - again so it goes with the film accurate hives)

    I finally found the frigging Scorpion Alien at LFCC! It's been sold out here for forever!

    Look forward to Cardiff Comic Con in september to see which Alien/Predator figures I can pick up then.

    I may get the dog alien and big chap since I only have the mcfarland ones, and when I bought the neca one his legs broke off as soon as I opened it so I returned it but never got a new one

    A retooled queen would be great, but i doubt NECA would bother with it if they had to do more than repaint it.

    The coloring, even when it's good, is annoying me more and more since most aliens don't really match with each other. I'm honestly considering painting them all just jet black and having a cohesive hive that looks great in the shadows.
