REVIEWED: 2014 SH MonsterArts ALIEN Big Chap Figure.

Alien Action figures generally come in all sizes ranging from 2 inches to 24 inches tall.  Intuitively, you’d think the larger items would be more detailed with greater articulation than their smaller counterparts and surprisingly that’s quite often not the case.
