These ‘Alien’ Pint Glasses Are Xenomorphically Awesome

By Zack Smith

What if McDonald’s or Burger King had offered decorated glasses with images from Ridley Scott’s “Alien” back in 1979?  Well, there would have been a massive parental outcry, but more accurately – it would have looked something like these new Super7 offerings that will be previewed at Wondercon.


Yes, Super7 will reveal the prototypes for a set of four pint glasses depicting the life cycle of the H.R. Giger-designed Xenomorph, in all its bloody/sexually-suggestive glory. The set, which will be available later this year, includes:

  • THE SPACE JOCKEY
  • ‘BIG CHAP’ aka THE ALIEN
  • KANE’S CHESTBURSTER
  • RIPLEY & THE AIRLOCK

Each of the 16-ounce pint glasses measures approximately 5 ¾” tall, with the set of four retailing for $49.99.

Please take a moment to reflect that we live in a golden age of “Alien” merchandise, when back in 1979, the thought of an “Alien” toy for kids created a massive uproar and resulted in the (awesome) toy being banned from the shelves.  Hey, here’s a commercial!

You can see the pint glasses on display at Booth #1166 at Wondercon on March 29-31.  Planning on going?
