Super 7 has rescued a series of action figures that no one ever thought would see the light of day. In 1979, Kenner had designed, but never produced, a series of 3.75″ figures based on the, now classic movie, Alien. Super 7 has gained the rights from 20th Century Fox and will be creating these figures exactly as originally envision over 30 years ago. There are 5 figures in total. They will sell for $19.99 each with an expected release date of August/September of this year. Pre-orders will begin during San Diego Comic-Con. Included are:
• 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
Now, here’s where things get interesting. GMA Network has an article talking about the figures. In the article, it mentions that if this initial batch is successful, we could see the line expanded to the other characters from Alien, and potentially characters from the follow-up, Aliens.
