Announced earlier this year, Super7 will be producing a line of figures based on Kenner’s “Lost” 1979 Alien 34-year-old prototype molds. And just a few days ago, they released some details and images featuring this upcoming line of figures. Super7 have acquired the molds and will be producing brand new figures from them. There will be five in total, Ripley, Dallas, Ash, Kane (in Nostromo spacesuit) and an Alien. Each Super7 ReAction Alien figure will retail for $19.99 each and will be available in August or September of 2013. These are authentic to the era, and feature 5 points of articulation and will come with stylized blister card packaging just like they were released in 1979 by Kenner!

ALIEN REACTION FIGURES
Available in August/September
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.
Preorders will begin at San Diego Comic Con!
