Super7's ReAction Alien Figures

Back at San Diego Comic Con, eagle eyed collectors caught a glimpse of the past come to haunt us...but not in the way the Grudge girl does with the weird throaty sound and strangly hair. Nono..this is a good haunting. We'll call it the "Ghosts of toys that never were."

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.

Preorders will begin at San Diego Comic Con 2013!
