Super7 ALIEN SDCC Exclusive Gallery!

Proof positive that somebody "gets it," the Super7 will offer FOUR different ALIEN ReAction Figure exclusives at San Diego Comic Con! Two of the items are free, but you're going to want to shell out some money for these. Free items include figure stands and catalogs, while paid items include Early Bird kits and gorgeous faux prototype figures.

First up: the faux-totypes. A limited number of blue figures were cast to look like the real (and fake) "Blue Harvest" prototypes commonly seen in the 1990s. This Flickr set shows you pretty dang much everything you could possibly want to see. (Keep scrolling, there's more below.)

It comes to you in a small box similar to Kenner's mail-in offers of the 1970s and 1980s, with a tongue-in-cheek letter about how the "upcoming" line would be a huge hit in 1979. The set is $40. No edition size given. (Yes, there were a ton of pictures, but keep going because we've got more.)

Next up: an actual Early Bird Kit. The set is $100 and is the empty box gambit from 1977 that kicked off Star Wars - you pay for the set and get a stage, some stickers, and basically what amounts to a slavish recreation of the Kenner original with one key difference: you get five figures this time. (Do you think we're done? We're not. Keep going.)

There are also some free Display Stands. These are going to be the sleeper hit of the show, I'm already sweating how I will get 2-7 of them for my other figures. (A little bit more below.)

Full Press Release from Super 7

ALIEN REACTION FIGURES

In 1979, prototypes for 3 3/4-inch 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.

Super7 will offer FOUR different exclusives related to this line at San Diego Comic Con:

SDCC EXCLUSIVE #1

ALIEN REACTION FIGURE "EARLY BIRD PACKAGE"

Preorders for the ALIEN ReAction Figures will begin at San Diego Comic Con... .and fans who preorder a set of the five ReAction Figures at our Super7's booth will get more than they ever expected - a full Early Bird Package containing:

An ALIEN figures display stage (including original artwork created in the style of 1970s packages), Space Club Membership Card, ALIEN photos, and a sheet of ALIEN stickers!

But the best part is this Package is FREE when you preorder your set of five figures at SDCC! The five ReAction Figures will be complete with accessories and on Blister Card packages -

* THE ALIEN ("BIG CHAP") - with removable transparent dome, extendable jaws and glow-in-the-dark head!

* RIPLEY - with Flame Thrower

* ASH - with Motion Detector

* DALLAS - with Flame Thrower

The Early Bird preorder for the five figures is only $100.00 in the Continental US, Rest of the world $125 (+tax) and the cost includes shipping fees! No additional postage necessary! The figures will ship between October 1~December 31, 2013, and the Early Bird Package will be handed to you on the spot at SDCC.

SDCC EXCLUSIVE #2

ALIEN REACTION FIGURE 2 PACK "DISCOVERED SALES SAMPLES" BIG CHAP & KANE

Super7 tracked down a retired toy sales representative who had a storage unit filled with old catalogs and toys from the 1970s, including a most amazing find: cases of "ALIEN SALES SAMPLES" designated for 1979's Toy Fair! Each package contains two figures - the ALIEN (Big Chap) and KANE (in Nostromo Space Suit) - in unpainted "test shot" blue plastic. These samples were intended for distribution to wholesale buyers looking for the "next big space movie" product in the 3 3/4-inch scale. Ultimately, the line was cancelled -as shown by the large red stamp on the box and enclosed letter to the sales staff - and these samples never were taken to the trade show.

Okay, full disclaimer: These two-packs are brand new and we are joking about "discovering" them. As far as we have been able to ascertain, ALIEN figures were never displayed at any toy show or event, which made us wonder what really happened behind the scenes. Taking that curiosity further, we decided to create "the sales samples that never existed" and turn it into fun collectible... and a great way to kick off the ReAction Figure series!

Super7 will bring a limited quantity of the "Discovered Sales Samples" to San Diego Comic Con! This will be the first opportunity for collectors to own the ALIEN and KANE in ReAction Figure format - five points of articulation, extendable inner jaws, removable clear dome, removable clear space helmet. Each two-pack in "cancelled" packaging (including the sales staff letter) retails for only $40.00.

SDCC EXCLUSIVE #3

ALIEN REACTION FIGURE BASES

Classic 3 3/4-inch figures are known to have holes in the heel of the toy, and ReAction Figures will keep that tradition alive! And if there is a hole in the foot, there needs to be a peg somewhere to connect...

Super7 has created an Exclusive Base in the shape of the ALIEN ReAction Figure logo complete with said peg. These bases will fit the upcoming ALIEN ReAction Figures as well as most vintage 3 3/4-inch scale toys. Visit the Super7 booth, sign up for our mailing list, and you will receive a Figure Base for FREE!

ALIEN TM REACTION FIGURE BASE

Free! While supplies last.

Available at Super7 booth #5245

SDCC EXCLUSIVE #4

ALIEN REACTION FIGURE CATALOG

Thirty-four years in the making! Get the lowdown on Super7's plans for the ALIEN ReAction Figure line in our "vintage style" catalog! A limited quantity of this popular catalog have been printed for San Diego Comic Con - and these will be available for FREE! Formatted exactly like the 3 3/4" space-figure booklets of yesteryear, this 12-page catalog features brand new information and photos on all five of the ALIEN ReAction Figures. Much of the catalog text and imagery is adapted from original toy packages and sales materials from the 1979 ALIEN product line, continuing the fun, retro vibe of the ReAction Figures themselves.
