Super7′s ‘Alien ReAction’ Figures Now Available for Preorder
Something I’ve been following with great interest over the last year or so is Super7‘s upcoming line of Alien action figures based on prototypes that never went into production back in the 1979. This is pretty much the coolest thing to happen in the toy world for a long time, and I’ve been waiting to get my hands on a set of these retro-inspired figures based on one of my favorite movies of all time.
The preorders are finally open, and it looks like they ship in a couple months. You can preorder a set on BBTS for $65 and you’ll get Ripley, Ash, Dallas, Kane, and an Alien. Yes please.
Here’s an official description from Super7:
In 1979, prototypes for 3 ¾” action figures for the ALIEN film were developed but never manufactured. Through our network of industry and collector contacts, Super7 has unearthed reference material and original 34-year-old prototypes and will now make these “lost toys” a reality.
Under authorization from 20th Century Fox, Super7 will produce the full series of ALIEN toys as part of our ReAction Figure Series (Retro-Action). Each is stylized exactly as items from the “golden age” of action figures with approximately five points of articulation, accessories, and period-authentic blister card packaging.
Are you as excited for these figures as me? What other classic films do you think should get the ReAction treatment?
