A Gentle Giant Release! Alien is the legendary 1979 science-fiction/horror film directed by Ridley Scott. The film's title refers to its primary antaognist, a highly aggressive extraterrestrial creature which stalks and kills the crew of a space freighter. The titular alien and its accompanying elements were designed by Swiss surrealist H.R. Giger. Gentle Giant has taken a vintage action figure of the Alien xenomorph and digitally scanned it, then reproduced it at a much larger scale. This figure also comes with an oversized reproduction of the original package art.
