SDCC 2014: Glow-In-The-Dark Vintage Jumbo Alien Figure offered Exclusively by Gentle Giant
At last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Gentle Giant had a 24-inch Alien action figure on display. Photos were prohibited, as it was still in the prototype phase. Now it’s time for Gentle Giant to bring that piece of history back to reality by announcing a SDCC 2014 exclusive glow-in-the-dark Vintage Jumbo Alien figure.
In order to make this humongous Alien action figure, Gentle Giant has taken the original 18″ Kenner Alien and made it slightly bigger! Of course, they also made it glow.
Limited to just 250 pieces worldwide, this Jumbo figure possesses some features that the original lacked – such as such as the new white teeth and a 100% Glow-In-The-Dark body. It even features mechanically-activated jaws, just like the original!
The figure is a little bit expensive, setting you back a whopping $500, but it’s history. Toy hunters of all generations are going to be lining up at the Gentle Giant booth during SDCC to get their hands on this prized piece. Pre-orders are currently available here, but only if you are a Premier Guild Member.
Given the fact that Gentle Giant has poured some money into tooling the mold for this figure, I would expect that a normal release will be announced after the Con. Though, I wouldn’t rely on this!
