Good things come to those who wait — including a rad collection of Alien action figures from 34 years ago. Back in 1979, this batch of toys for Ridley Scott's Alien was pitched and ditched. But now Super 7 has found these designs and promises to bring them back!
According to the official site, preorders will begin at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. Here are the facts:
“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.”
Very, very cool. We'll be first in line.
