NECA Glow in the Dark Big Chap Alien SDCC 2020 Exclusive

The final NECA exclusive for San Diego Comic Con 2020 was revealed as a new Glow in the Dark version of their Alien "Big Chap" Ultimate figure. The set includes the Big CHap Ultimate figure with new Glow in the Dark paint job and also includes glow in the dark versions of the 1979 Alien Egg, Chestburster and Facehugger.



The Ultimate box also includes Glow in the Dark properties for those displaying in the box. Like all Ultimate releases it features an opening front flap. The artwork is based on the original Alien 1979 movie poster art, and is marked in the top corner as NECA Convention Exclusive.



With SDCC 2020 cancelled, and like all the NECA exclusives, the set will be going to general retail in the US via Walmart. The Alien is due to go on shelves as of the 23rd of July, but it may start turning up sooner if employees are eager. The Alien will also be on The NECA Store on the same date and can be ordered internationally. The on shelf price is $29.96 with the online version at $34.99. With shipping to UK you will be paying around $42.99 (£34) but you may incur customs charges on arrival in the UK.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
