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.

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.

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.

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 Resurrection Queen, Ripley, and Newborn are all now up on NECA's eBay store. No sign of the Warrior yet though.

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.

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.

Yeah, that was never gonna happen... Looks like all the effort of new sculpting is going into getting out the Parker and Brett figures, eventually. I agree, disappointing knowing it's the 40th.

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.

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

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:
