The lead-off character in the new Sci-Fi Revoltech series is none other than the original Alien "Big Chap"! This guy works particularly well as a Revoltech figure, too, what with his segmented body and all. Very cool! Main jaw opens and inner jaw can extend. Includes bursting egg, facehugger, and base with a separate nameplate. Amazing detail and amazing posability (13 points of articulation, with a bendable and posable tail!) make this Revoltech figure a must-have item for any Alien fan!

Academy Award-winning SFX, makeup, and film director Chris Walas (The Fly, The Fly II, Gremlins, Scanners, Naked Lunch, etc.) proclaims, "Unbelievable! This is the best Alien figure I have ever seen!"

The flap is held closed by a small piece of velcro. It's quite a neat way to present a background story of the figure's on the inner flap.

The plastic trays:

The way the notches are placed on the trays and the presence of only 2 twisties seems to leave the overall packaging quite collector-friendly.

The contents:
Image
• Alien figure
• Face Hugger figure
• Alien Egg Environment
• Display base
• Name plate
• Revoltech Coin(10 points)
• Revoltech Parts Container

Connecting both together...

I just love these 2 pieces when combined, since it just captured that bursting moment so perfectly.

The head... (Normal, inner mouth, 'human like')

This is my first revoltech figure, and I definitely find it much better than hottoys snapfast kits in so much more ways. I haven't taken much in terms of photos since I only got it after work just now, but here's some in the meantime.

Some shots with figma:

And some shots with an ambush:

More to come probably, after I find some time to pose it...
Thanks for reading.
