Super7 Will Release The Unreleased Kenner Alien Figures
Super7 has done some digging in the toy industry and found some prototypes of some figures that just need to see the light of day. In 1979 Kenner produced some prototypes for 3 3/4 action figures that were based off of the Alien film, but they never got around to actually manufacturing them. Now Super7 Will Release The Unreleased Kenner Alien Figures. These 34 year old prototypes are finally going to become a reality.
Super7 has received authorization from 20th Century Fox (or is it 21st Century Fox?) to produce the full series of the Alien figures under Super7’s “ReAction Figure Series (Retro-Action)”. They are stylized exactly like the prototypes from Kenner and will feature 5 points of articulation, accessories, and period-authentic blister card packaging.
The five figures that will be released in the ReAction Figure Series will be:
- 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
They are each going to be priced at $19.99 each and will be available in August/September. Pre-orders are going to be starting at SDCC 2013!
There is also an article up on MTV Geek that talks about the figures if you want to read more about them. In the article it says that if this first line is successful, the line could be expanded to other characters from Alien, and even to characters from the follow-up movie, Aliens.
