Q
The $60-80 one looks more accurate and has better articulation.

Depends on what you're after, I guess. I'd be more forgiving of the Neca figures if they weren't trying to pass as a specific design.
I’d be more forgiving of the Mafex if it was bigger and didn’t come apart every time I move it.
Sounds like I wasn't the only one who got a dud Mafex Alien.

It's a shame because I've got other Mafex figures and they're fantastic.

Yeah, I actually bought 2, and one was good, one was bad... I've also had some really nice Mafex figures, but some of the older ones fall apart like crazy also, not sure what happened with the Alien...
The good one is decent, can come apart, but not easily. The bad one comes apart by looking at it, you cannot move anything without the entire body crumbling apart (waste, both legs, all tubes on back, head, EVERYTHING).

Don't know if this holds any truth. So I've seen or heard the Ultimate Big Chap is in select Targets right now, but is delayed for several other places and is facing delays because of the Corona Virus?

I ordered mine on BBTS.

The shipments that have hit certain Targets were basically flukes that managed to clear the ports before the virus started delaying everything. Not even the NECA eBay or Amazons stores have gotten their stock yet.

I've got a question about the figures, does using masking tape on them make the paint come off? I'm trying to find a way to animate one with stopmotion and I can't figure out how to hold it in place given that it's quite stiff.

You should be fine if you haven't repainted them.
Wall tac also works pretty well, I used it to hold my queen up before getting her a base.

So here he is...the Ultimate Big Chap. I stumbled upon 2 at a Target. I had wanted 4 of them since they were announced, so I went to another Target...and another and another and found 2 more.


Here he is out of the package.


His dome has a ridged skull underneath, it looks great!


Here's the Alien egg next to the Aliens egg.




Here's the Alien Facehugger next to the Aliens, Alien 3, and Alien Covenant face huggers.


Here's the Alien Chestburster with the Aliens, Alien 3, and Alien Covenant versions.


Here he is next to the original Big Chap.
Differences are top part of head, arms (barely), and the legs/knees.
Articulation is perhaps great, but mostly the same.


My entire Big Chap collection.


My YouTube review on him.


And...Kenner Drake and Rhino are officially on the Neca calendar for April 14th.

I'm gonna hold out till mine gets mailed out. I like how you called it the Covid19 Alien in your review. When this ends I will always remember it as the one that got held up because of the Virus. I ordered mine from BBTS.

Bit of a lurker, don't post too much, never posted pics.  Tried my hand at taking a couple w/ my new LED display lights.  This was fun, enjoy!

No filter, just my display light:

Wow, that looks really nice. Making dioramas and photos of our figures is so much fun!

I totally agree. I am working on a diorama based on the hived atmosphere processor in Aliens - with lights as part of it. I am planning on fire lighting from (off camera) flickering candle LED lights - looking forward to seeing the results.
I will post some pics soon (I hope)

Picked up the ultimate Big Chap today while at Target. It’s a step up from the original so I’m happy I grabbed it.
