Few things in the action figure world have made me as giddy and nostalgic as Super7's amazing ReAction line. This is literally a concept I have been hoping for since I began in this hobby 12 years ago. For the uninitiated, or those living in a cave, ReAction is a line of modern action figures done in a vintage style. To make it an even sweeter deal, this initial Alien series is made from original unproduced prototypes from the late 1970s. The future series are not derived from actual prototypes, but they stay very true to the vintage style. Upcoming waves I'm especially excited about are Firefly, Terminator, Pulp Fiction, and Universal Monsters. After the initial solicitation of the Alien line (at $20 each), Super7 formed a partnership with the fine folks at Funko for the production and distribution of ReAction Figures. This meant lower prices and the chance to actually find them in a brick and mortar store. I'm sure access to Funko's numerous licenses was a huge added bonus as well. Let's check out this retro Ripley below!
I love the name "ReAction" - it's a perfect branding for this line.
