Super7 announces ALIEN ReAction Figures!


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 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 Designer Vinyl Figures and retro-styled Glassware! Please visit Super7’s booth (#4729) at the San Diego Comic Con for teasers of what is to come in 2013!

Wow! I'm amazed! I'm so glad to see these actually going into production (as long as they don't cost $50 each...). I've been wanting repros of these since I first saw them in the first issue of AFN&TR.

You know, I wonder if they could do a "Pocket Shogun Warrior" style figure of the Alien? ALIEN CHOGOKIN!
