Action figure company Super 7 has already put a giant hole in my wallet with their brilliant and award-worthy release of their ReAction 3-3/4″ Alien figure line, based on original unused 1979 prototypes (they are now available at special retailers).
With the success of their first line, they’re using the upcoming New York Toy Fair to promote the next phase in ReAction retro figures. Already for pre-order on Entertainment Earth are retro versions of characters from Terminator, Predator, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Nightmare Before Christmas, Back to the Future, Escape From New York and many more!
They’ve also acquired the rights to the Universal Monsters, which could include Creature from the Black Lagoon, Frankenstein’s Monster and his Bride, Dracula, the Mummy, the Wolf Man, the Phantom of the Opera, and the Invisible Man.
Each figure 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.
Other figures revealed Sunday include Pinhead from Hellraiser, invisible Predator, The Crow, Michael Myers from Halloween, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” Ghostface from Scream, Sam from Trick ‘r Treat and more!
