Gentle Giant’s Kenner Alien Jumbo Figure Available for Pre-Order


If you love classic toys and are a fan of the Toy Hunter TV show, then you probably saw Jordan’s last pick, which involved finding a classic 18 inch tall Kenner Alien figure from 1979. Gentle Giant, one of the world’s premiere high-end collectibles producers, tasked the toy hunter with finding this rare gem for its new jumbo figure line based on classic Kenner figures from the 70’s and 80’s.

Jordan was able to come through for Gentle Giant, and sold them a $600 authentically boxed 1979 Kenner Alien figure, which has officially been turned into a new high end collectible. Gentle Giant has opened pre-orders for this jumbo figure, which now stands at 24 inches in length, so it’s even bigger than the 1979 original. Outside of that this recreation is spot on. Everything from the chrome teeth to the transparent skull are intact, and Gentle Giant even recreated the original box and poster to boot.

Collectors who want to pre-order Gentle Giant’s jumbo sized 1979 Alien figure can now save $100 by doing so before February 21, 2014. Even with the early bird discount this figure will still cost you $399.99, but that’s better than $499.99, so head over to the official pre-order page to get your savings on! Head on down below to check out a few images of this bad boy out of the box.
