Super 7 intend to release a pair of variants of this figure.   A ‘Classic Toy’ finish in flat black with glow in the dark highlights and another, ‘Marine Ambush’, in a brushed copper finish is expected to be available as well.  Very soon, by the looks of it.  You can’t get Continue reading

Kickstarter Update – Pre-Launch Auto-Cycle Engaged.

Reviewed: NECA’s David 8 Action Figure.

ALIEN: Covenant is coming.  Let’s not forget it’s a sequel of sorts to PROMETHEUS.  We’ll be seeing the return of the late Mr. Weyland’s Pride and Joy – the android David 8.

NECA released a version of the character in their popular 7 inch action figure format some time back as part of their PROMETHEUS Series 2 line up.  David 8 was a mighty cool character; but does the action figure live up to those standards?  You can read the review right here. 


NECA Officially Reveals ALIEN Series 11 Details.

We know NECA’s Series 11 ALIEN figures have been coming for sometime but we now have exact details.  Of most significance to me is the Lambert figure, which is the first time an official likeness has been granted by Veronica Cartright; and even better, Lambert has 2 heads!

Well, 2 interchangeable heads, that is.  Not 2 at the same time.  I don’t think Lambert is some kind of chimera.  The facial details and 1970s hair style looks very well sculpted and Continue reading

This series of Toys is a subscription based model with the first introductory item being the Big Chap as seen above.  There’s going to be a new pair of ALIEN and PREDATOR based figures shipped to subscribers every month.  Wow.  There’s a ton more images in ToyArk’s gallery.


Toy Fair 2017: Super 7 ALIENS M.U.S.C.L.E. Toys.

Following up on their earlier range of diminutive ALIEN M.U.S.C.L.E. toys, Super 7 have revealed their new ALIENS range of bite size pliable rubbery merchandise at Toy Fair 2017.  Once again, there’s more images over at ToyArk.

I still don’t know what to make of these things.  They look like dog biscuits, to me.  I guess the family dog will get as much joy out of chewing on them as Junior will have playing with Continue reading
