2014 marks the 35th anniversary of one of the best movies ever made, Ridley Scott’s classic Alien. You can argue whether or not it is a horror movie with sci-fi leanings, or a sci-fi movie with horror elements until you’re blue in the face. The fact of the matter is that, either way you look at it, this movie is damn near perfect. To celebrate the milestone, there are a number of things planned for this year, including a ton of incredible new toys and collectibles on their way. You should probably start clearing shelf space now.
First up is this awesome Egg Chamber from Super7. As you can see, this toy recreates H.R. Giger’s iconic designs and aesthetics, and there are little figurines for your kids to play with, or more realistically, for you to pose and not let your children anywhere near. And that’s if you even decide to take this bad boy out of the original packaging in the first place.
If you want to get your hands on this particular piece of merchandise, good luck. For starters, this will be exclusively available at San Diego Comic-Con later this month. So you’ll have to be there in person to lay your grubby little mitts on this, and if you don’t already have your pass, you’re out of luck. And if that isn’t enough of a barrier, only a limited number of these will be available, and by limited, we mean 250, which isn’t many at all. That’s the situation, and now you have mission, should you choose to accept it.
In addition to the Egg Chamber, Super7 will also have another Alien-themed toy available at SDCC. This Deep Space Alien Mystery Egg is so realistic that if you find yourself in the same room as this, you’ll likely peer over from time to time just to make sure that there isn’t a facehugger crawling out of the top.
NECA is renowned for creating badass figurines and memorabilia, and their latest offering is no exception. They’ve revealed the details and images of a giant statue of the Xenomorph Queen—based on James Cameron’s 1986 sequel Aliens, rather than Scott’s 1979 original, but this is so cool we’re willing to let that detail slide. For a company known for delivering fantastic products, NECA has taken it up a few notches with this.
First off, this Xenomorph is 15 inches tall and more than 30 inches long, so it’s big. In addition to that, there are over 30 points of articulation, which includes the entire length of the tail. There is a base to keep it steady, as well as two different mouths that you can swap in an out, depending on what scene you’re recreating at the moment. The detail on this is incredible, just imagine walking into a dimly lit room and spying this out of the corner of your eye. That’s enough to give you nightmares.
