Collected News: June 17 – 23, 2013

Each week I’ll take a look at what toy (and related) news have been announced and share what news I’m most excited about!

Super7’s SDCC Exclusive Alien ReAction Figures Revealed!

On Thursday June 19th, 2013, Super7 had posted information for their upcoming 4 ALIEN ReAction Figures exclusives for this year’s San Diego Comic Con! Ripley! Dallas! Plus 3 more characters from the ALIEN movie with the look and scale of vintage Kenner Star Wars figures! Unbelievable! Here is some background information about the action figure line 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.

Pre-orders for this line will begin at San Diego Comic Con (visit Super7’s booth #5245) and the figures will be available for shipping starting in October 1 to December 31, 2013. Here are the following exclusives (photos in the slideshow from Super7):

SDCC EXCLUSIVE #1 – ALIEN REACTION FIGURE “EARLY BIRD PACKAGE”

SDCC EXCLUSIVE #2 -ALIEN REACTION FIGURE 2 PACK “DISCOVERED SALES SAMPLES” BIG CHAP & KANE

SDCC EXCLUSIVE #3 – ALIEN REACTION FIGURE BASES

Check out Super7’s blog for more details and photos about their SDCC ALIEN ReAction exclusives. For any fan of the ALIEN franchise and vintage Kenner style action figures, these items would be something to consider to add to your collection! (If I get a chance to get this line, these figures will be played and displayed with to my Star Wars figures!)
