Super7 Teases ALIENS M.U.S.C.L.E. Figures at SDCC 2017

This teaser image dropped in my inbox this morning and like all things plastic and ALIEN it goes straight on the front page here.  Super7 is continuing their ALIENS range and what we have here looks like it could be a pair of ALIENS themed M.U.S.C.L.E. figures.  These items were previously on display at Toy Fair 2017, earlier this year.

Will this be a San Diego Comic Con 2017 exclusive?  …or will it be a general release item blister packaged on a card?  …or in a box like their previous Queen vs Ripley ReAction figure powerloader set.?  We don’t know just yet but SDCC 2017 is happening at the end of this month so we’ll find out soon enough.
