If you caught this week’s episode of Toy Hunter, then you know that Gentle Giant is working on a jumbo version of the original Kenner Alien 18-Inch Figure. The original is a hard to find collector’s item that fetches some pretty good money on the secondary market.
Now Gentle Giant if bringing a new version created from 3D scans of the original figure. Today they have revealed the Alien Vintage Jumbo Figure, along with pre-orders for it. It features mechanically activated jaws, just like the original. It also comes packaged in an Alien-inspired vintage-style box with copies of the original poster and instruction sheets.
For the first week, you can save a $100 on this pricey figure. The regular price is $499.00, but for the first week, you can get it for a special introductory price of $399.00. It is due to be available in the 4th quarter of 2014. I won’t argue that it looks pretty freaking cool though. Check out some images of the Gentle Giant Alien Vintage Jumbo Figure below, then head on over to their site to pre-order.
