Sideshow Collectibles Announces Alien 'Big Chap' Bust

Celebrating the 35th anniversary of Ridley Scott's sci-fi thriller Alien, Sideshow Collectibles is releasing the long awaited Alien Big Chap Legendary Scale Bust. 


One of the most recognizable creatures ever to stalk the silver screen, the Big Chap alien earned its nickname on the film set for its overwhelming size. Recreated in approximately 1:2 scale, this magnificent bust captures H.R. Giger's original bio-mechanical creature design in stunning detail. Sideshow's artists have faithfully rendered the xenomorph's distinctive head carapace with its signature glossy-wet appearance, and a semi-translucent surface reveals the haunting skull beneath. Incorporated into the base of the bust is a relief design of an alien egg and facehugger - a special nod to the rich film lore of the Aliens universe, and an accompanying themed film name plate completes the display. 

The Alien Big Chap Legendary Scale Bust is an outstanding addition to any Xenophile collection...just keep it away from the cat.

Expected to ship in November 2014, the "Big Chap" bust from Sideshow Collectibles retails for $399 and is available for pre-order now at SideshowToy.com
