I mean yeah. Neca figures are around the $50-$80 mark here as a benchmark.

 Yikes you weren't kidding :o

I can usually get Neca for $25-$30 here.

BlueMarsalis79

Yeah but they're shit. I'd rather pay double. For something that's good. That goes for most things honestly.

426Buddy

Yeah but your standards are way way higher than mine. I'm perfectly happy with my Neca figures and they cost me 4x less than this.

Also the head/dome on this looks all kinds of wrong anyway and at $100 this thing should be perfect.

BlueMarsalis79

You're right about that, happy with my MAFEX, even it is fragile.

If the quality control is there, with that amount of detail and accessories, around $100 is pretty reasonable I think. I mean compare that to a Hot Toys or Sideshow statue. In my experience the 7" scale $25 figures are usually quite prone to QC issues.

This looks like a decent Alien to me, but I still think the most accurate Big Chap figure is the Mafex one: https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/product/variationdetails/79247?gclid=Cj0KCQjws4aKBhDPARIsAIWH0JUGvmGM4NAjJLXE3BEtwRezvPHq3DbhglOtrV7M1C7NBypO99uwk0AaAmWpEALw_wcB

Though if you don't care about articulation, it's the Kotobukiya one: https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/29243

The latter is difficult to find for MSRP these days.

Kotobukiya is my favorite, still kicking myself for not buying it when it was released.

Pass.

I'm content with my 22-inch 2015 reissue NECA Big Chap. I'm still waiting for the perfect sculpt and paint detailing.

I don't think it'll ever happen. The "Big Chap" design is simply too intricate for anyone to completely nail from all angles.

Every ALIEN figure release has been lacking in one way or another.

Don't forget that it's a movie design. It was never supposed to look good from all angles.

This is actually a really salient point I'd never really considered.

Mezco has another version coming based on the earlier white semi-translucent design.

there usually 30 to 50 around here but besides comicbook stores not not slot of places sell neca, iv presently seen big chap and the alien warrior at a few walmarts I think it s under $30.
