The Alien ReAction figures from Super7 and Funko are a fantastic idea that hits every nostalgic note right on the money.
These figures are based off of unproduced prototypes from 1979. They would have been made by Kenner and would have had the same feel as the same figures of the time. Super7 unearthed the prototypes and brought them back to life in 2013 as "ReAction" figures. These figures are meant to replicate the look and feel of the toys as if they were originally released back in the day, right down to the packaging. Originally the brainchild of Super7, these have been picked up by Funko which allows for a wider distribution and lower price point. The collaboration with Funko also allows for the line to expand into other licensed properties.
Kane's card features amazing vintage-style design as Kenner would have done it back in the day.
Kane is executive officer of the Nostromo and is played by actor John Hurt. In his space suit, Kane investigates the wreck of the alien space ship. In there, he gets attacked by a “Face Hugger” alien that later bursts out of his chest during dinner. Remember, we marketed toys to kids from this movie.
Kane is depicted here in his space suit with removable helmet. The suit is bulky and finely detailed, with nice touches like rivets in the armor and wrist communicator.
Despite having the molded hand, Kane has no weapon to hold.
The helmet is nicely detailed and has a better fit than the SDCC exclusive version. The limited SDCC stand is not included.
