Retro Alien action figures!

From cooltoyreview, Remember those cool Alien figures Kenner released in 1979? Oh yeah, they never released them. The world wasn't ready for Star Wars quality figures based on an R rated film back then and what could have been another crucial piece of our childhoods was taken away from us and we didn't even know it. Fast forward thirty-three years and Super7 is prepared to correct Kenner's single biggest mistake by producing all five of the figures we should have had since 1979 (and you must know by now how important we consider 1979 the turning point in the world of action figures). In addition to this portion of their display, they also revealed the production of Burger King style Alien glasses and a pile of Transformers retro awesomeness.

That really is a remarkable piece of collectible fairy-tale-come-true goodness. How cool!

Still, I'll probably only want the Alien (Xenomorph, whatever) and the dude in the spacesuit.

Then again, the idea of 3 3/4 inch figures made with 1979 aesthetics is pretty irresistable...

Great blog man. I've also visited Horrorthon but I couldn't leave a comment over there. I just wanted to tell you that I reviewed the first issue of Frankenstein Alive Alive here:


Feel free to stop by and leave a comment. I'd love to hear the opinion of a seasoned horror fan such as yourself.

Thanks for the positive feedback, Arion! We were recently forced to disable comments on Horrorthon for personal reasons however I believe that we will be enabling them in the near future. I will check out your site!

Kane in Nostromo Suit looks a helluva lot like Dengar.
