Unboxing the NECA 40th Anniversary Big Chap Alien

I’ve recently gotten my hands on the 40th Anniversary “Big Chap” Alien from NECA.  In this video I unbox it, showcase the whole thing, and do a quick comparison versus the 1979 Kenner original.  Before we jump into the video, let’s check out a bit about it from NECA themselves:

Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the original 1979 movie that shocked audiences and jump-started a legendary film franchise!

We’ve given a deluxe upgrade to the Xenomorph known to fans as “Big Chap,” with an all-new sculpt standing over 22” tall. It has a hinged jaw that opens, revealing an inner mouth that extends for realistic movie action. It has over 30 points of articulation, including double knee joints and a bendable tail, and extra attention has been paid to all the eerie details that made H.R. Giger’s designs for Alien so mesmerizing.

The packaging is a special tribute to the 1979 Kenner Alien figure!

I can’t overstate just how amazing this figure is.  Check out our unboxing, and let us know what you think in the comments!
