REVIEWED: Unofficial ReAction Figure Guide.

Occasionally I like to review more than just toys.  Sometimes – not often – I like to take a peek into books about toys.  Today, under the spotlight for evaluation is the Unofficial ReAction Figure Guide.

Super7 has been prolific of late, they’ve been driving force behind the Retro Action figure RenAissance in 3.75 inch toys with their ReAction figure line up.  ReAlly?  Yes.  ReAlly.  Now some clever dude has written a book about these small scale collectible toys.  ReAd the HIDEOUS PLASTIC review of the Unofficial ReAction Figure Guide right here. 

RemAin ReAssured it’s a ReAlly good ReAd.  lol. 🙂


REVIEWED: Super7 Blind Box ReAction Aliens.

ALIEN ReAction figures?  Too much of a good thing?  Had enough of this stuff, already?  Wait!  Here’s 3 more for you to collect.  The good folk at Super7 know we love these things so they keep cranking ’em out.  So here they are, the ReAction SPACE VILLAIN series blind box ALIEN figures.

Just like Ridley Scott keeps cranking out new ALIEN movies, these items will either be a welcome addition to your life; or you’ll moan and sigh from over-exposure.

This is the 2nd article in a series; and for this piece of work, let’s find out if these things are any good.  Find out in this review. 


The Curious History of ALIEN ReAction Figures.

During the next weeks I’ll be looking into ALIEN ReAction figures in a series of articles.  It’s appropriate then that we start at the beginning and focus on the history of the Alien figure itself, delving into the fascinating world of prototypes and find out what makes them significant

A series of 3 written items appearing on this site explores different aspects of these popular 1970s themed ALIEN retro action figures.  This first article explores their origin and unfortunate conditions that curtailed their development in the late 1970s, how they were kept concealed from public scrutiny for decades; and their eventual phoenix-like rise from the ashes of ambiguity.


More Super7 M.U.S.C.L.E. Stuff at SDCC 2017

Not surprisingly, Super7 are releasing more exclusive ALIEN items at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.   More ALIEN M.U.S.C.L.E. figures, if you can’t get enough, already.

“Recreate your favorite Alien moments with the new Wave 1 Alien M.U.S.C.L.E. Trash Can assortment!

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.


Q&A with Nic Durham, Author of The Unofficial ReAction Figure Guide Book.

A new book about those popular 3.75 inch tall Super7 toys we’ve been seeing all over the place during the past few years is about to be released this month.  ReAction Figures – Unofficial Action Figure Guide, 2013-2016 is a full color guide book by UK author, Nic Durham.

Nic was kind enough to put aside some time to provide some insight into the production of this publication.  You can read his answers to my questions.


Unofficial ReAction Figure Book Nears Completion.

Author, Nic Durham has posted a video of his upcoming ReAction figure book.  The book is currently in development and in the final stages of preparation with proof copy currently being assessed by the Author.

Here’s a Facebook video of the book’s contents.  This does look neat – even if it represents only half of what the finished publication will look like.  There’s a ton of work on show here and I wish Nick all the success in the world for this ambitious Project.  Fab!
