We've got some very, very cool news to pass on, especially if your a fanboy of Ridley Scott's "Alien" franchise. Rather then sum up this awesome news ung our own words, we thought we'd bring you the exact details as we received them.
In 1979, prototypes for 3 ¾" action figures for the ALIEN film were developed by Kenner to revial their Star Wars line, but never manufactured. Working alongde their network of industry and collector contacts, Super7 has unearthed the original 33-year-old prototypes and will utilize these to help make these “lost toys” a reality.
With official authorization from 20th Century Fox, Super7 will produce the full series of ALIEN toys as part of our REACTION Figure Series (Retro-Action.)
REACTION Figures are stylized exactly as items from the "golden age" of action figures with approximately five points of articulation, accessories, and period-authentic blister card packaging.
The original line up of 3 ¾” action figures for the ALIEN were scheduled to be RIPLEY, ASH, DALLAS, KANE in NOSTROMO SUIT, and the BIG CHAP (the nickname used on-set for the ALIEN creature).Other ALIEN & ALIENS merchandise will follow, including Degner Vinyl Figures and retro-styled Glassware!
