Alien collectibles have gotten a kick in the butt as of late, thanks to NECA and especially Super7. Super7 models their stuff after the Kenner figures of old, so they automatically make me want to purchase them. But the attention to detail in the sculpting is where they really shine. Their various 18-inch Xenomorphs are damn near perfect. While I have yet to get my hands on one, seeing up close is believing. One of these days…
Super7 Alien Warrior 18 Inch Acid Green Figure
Maybe that day is today, because that looks awesome. Earlier this year for Alien Day, they did blind box 3 3/4 inch Xenomorph figures in different designer colors. This was one of them (I have the whole set and they are awesome).
"This thing bled acid.."
Something sinister is stirring on LV-426…… WARNING!…ALIENS are here! The iconic 1979 science fiction thriller ALIEN launched not only a new franchise of space-terror, but created one of the most amazing toys ever made! The infamous 1979 Kenner Alien giant-sized action figure captured the imagination of a generation – many of whom never even saw the nightmare-inducing film!
Legend has it that the original giant-sized action figure was deemed too frightening for children and was quickly pulled from toy shelves, resulting in the 'Big Chap' becoming one of the most sought-after toys on the secondary market today. Whether through mythical recall or simply not connecting with a market, the dream of an army of giant-sized Xenomorphs has had it's bubble (chest) burst…until now!
The Super7 Super Size Alien Warrior action figure is the imagined successor to the 1979 Kenner Alien Action Figure – standing an amazing 18″ tall, the Super Size Alien Warrior features a painstakingly faithful sculpture, recreating the original Kenner Alien, but changed to match the suit in the second film. This Xenomorph featured a different head, arms, and feet than the original Alien.
The new ACID GREEN 18-inch Aliens Warrior will be hatching on Halloween both online in the Super7 web store and at our stores in San Francisco and San Diego!
"Game over, man! Game over!!"
Looks like I know what my Halloween present to myself will be this year. That day it will be available here.
