Stranded on the Isle of Misfit Toys since 1979, these abandoned Alien action figures will soon be born in fresh blister packs thanks to novelty toymakers Super 7.
Here's the official announcement and five-figure lineup:
“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 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.”
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
These retro Alien toys are due for delivery in August/September and sell for $19.99 each. Pre-orders will launch at the San Diego Comic-Con in July. So start building your Nostromo airshafts and dreadnought dioramas for these babies to frolic in.
Have a look ...
