The recent announcement of 40 YEARS OF ALIEN SWEEPSTAKES has listed an Diamond Select Xeno Warrior Vinimate as part of their 3rd Prize. I didn’t know much about these so I thought i’d look them up. Here’s the information I found
As the whole world braces itself for Alien: Covenant, DST prepares to unleash the top-secret new Xenomorph on their Vinimates vinyl figure line! This 4-inch vinyl figure is based on the new creature design in the new prequel film, and features an articulated neck for further posing options. Packaged in a full-color window box.
This time, DST is revisiting the original 1979 film, to capture the original “Big Chap” Alien in the Minimates block-figure style. This 4-inch vinyl figure features an articulated neck, so you can customize his pose, and comes packaged in a full-color window box.
Based on the 1986 sci-fi/action classic Aliens, the next two iconic characters to be Vinimate-ized are Nostromosurvivor Ellen Ripley and a ferocious Warrior Alien! Sculpted in the style of DST’s Minimates mini-figures, each 4-inch Vinimates vinyl figure has an articulated neck, and comes packaged in a full-color window box. Designed by Art Asylum!
Here’s a review I found about the Big Chap Vinimate
Today in the Toyverse, I begin my celebration of Aliens Day a bit early. That’s right, as April 26th approaches, I am going to be covering some cool Alien figures from Diamond Select Toys. On the chopping block today is the Diamond Select Toys Big Chap Alien Vinimate. This Vinimate has some incredible detail in the sculpt, and it is mind boggling that Diamond Select delivered such great detail for under 10 bucks. The paint is spot on, and the articulated head is an added bonus. Check out the full review to learn more!TOYVERSE PRESENTS: DIAMOND SELECT TOYS ALIENS BIG CHAP VINIMATE REVIEW
