In 1979, much to our dismay, prototypes for 3 ¾” action figures for the ALIEN film were developed, however they never saw the light of day... until now! Through a 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! They will cost $19.99 each and be available in August/September.
The first wave includes:
THE ALIEN ("BIG CHAP") - w/ removable transparent dome, extendable jaws and glow-in-the-dark head
RIPLEY - w/ Flame Thrower
ASH - w/ Motion Detector
DALLAS - w/ Flame Thrower
KANE IN NOSTROMO SPACESUIT - w/ removable helmet and transparent visor
