I could already tell at Comic-Con this year that Super7 seriously underestimated the popularity of their announced Alien ReAction "retro" action figure line.
Thursday morning when I made my way to their booth to pick up a "Sample Set" of the Alien/Space Suit set, as well as order my Early Bird carded set, I was immediately informed that they were sold out-- for the entire show!-- of their exclusive Alien/Space Suit figure set. They had sold out in about an hour on Preview Night. By their reaction, it was easy to tell that Super7-- a smaller "art toy" specialty company-- was seriously caught off guard by the rabid action figure community that had taken a very strong interest in their ReAction Alien line.
Super7 has just recently partnered with Funko-- a much larger and wide-reaching toy company-- to help them distribute their ReAction Alien line. But, as we're just learning now, thanks to the fan's interest, as well as Funko's distribution infrastructure, the Alien series is just the tip of the iceberg of what Super7 now has planned for the ReAction line.
Here's what Super7 says is in the works so far...
Wow-- some seriously amazing licenses there!! And all will be done in that same retro-- or ReAction-- style. Meaning they will look like Kenner figures from the late 70's, early 80's.
