I managed to find a comparison. It’s noticeably smaller. Ugh.

Was hoping Mafex would actually fudge this one and overscale it, like they did with the Suicide Squad figures and some others in the past.

Ultimate Big Chap!!! Finally! Well, that’s two things from SDCC I want now.

Honestly, I’m surprised at how it seems like toy companies are speeding up production and taking on more and more projects right now, while a lot of collectors are looking to slow down their collecting habits.

I picked up the Newborn figure the other day. Much like their Assassin Predator it's a gorgeous figure and very big. It's a little hard to stand (which is why they included one) and the front head piece is stiff as hell out the box. Nothing a blow dryer won't fix however.

I know everyone hates the design but it's kind of grown on me now. It's the creepiest and most monstrous design of the aliens and I can't hate on it just for being different from the normal creature designs.

Gonna pick up Ripley and the warrior alien next.

I’m just waiting on the big chap himself. Nothing else I want honestly. Maybe Drake... if he ever sees the light of day.

I got the Newborn coming in. I never got the hate for it. Such a unique design and some of the best creature effects created for film. It should be up there with the original alien and predator. I'm also looking into getting the re-release big chap or the quarter scale version. The older version I got rid of had so many QC problems I got sick of it.

I’d be tempted to get it, if I was still getting Ripley and the Xenomorph. Hell, I still haven’t picked up the Aliens Queen.

I honestly was just going to pick this up but now I kind of want the Ripley to go with the Newborn. I also really want to Resurrection Queen repaint. Always loves the brown paint job.

They did do a pretty good job on the Resurrection figures, from what I can tell.

I really hope the Big Chap is perfect. It’s likely my last “Alien” figure, unless Hot Toys makes a Big Chap 2.0. Drake doesn’t count, because he’s human.

I hope the new ultimate big chap and 1/4 are perfect also. I've had at least 2 different releases of Neca's past versions and both were riddled with QC issues. I hope this go around is much better.

Is that the Mafex? I almost got that one, but it was still too small to go with my Neca stuff.
