It stalked the crew of the Nostromo from the shadows, methodically killing Captain Dallas' team one-by-one. The Xenomorph in 1979's Alien was a ruthless, efficient hunter of the dark, and in a way, the new SDCC 2014 exclusive Alien jumbo figure from Gentle Giant pays tribute to that deadly skill with its glow in the dark feature and surprising size.

Standing two feet tall in an enlarged version of the design of Kenner’s 18” Alien figure that was released in 1979, this limited edition Alien Glow in the Dark Vintage Jumbo Figure has only 250 items in stock. With the official measurement of 24’’ by 7.25’’ by 9.85’’, the Kenner-inspired Alien figure comes with white teeth inside a mechanical jaw that stands out against its 100% glow in the dark body. Available to pre-order now if you're a Premier Guild member and at your own risk, as pre-orders won't ship until after SDCC if there are any figures left over, this Alien figure can be purchased for $499.99:
