Default Super 7 & Funko ReAction

Here is a checklist for everything that has been released or officially announced.

ReAction - All Lines

Alien
Aliens (announced during 12 days of X-mas)
A-Team (announced during 12 days of X-mas)
Back to the Future
Big Lebowski
Big Trouble in Little China
Boondock Saints
Breaking Bad
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Dark Crystal (announced during 12 days of X-mas)
DC : Arrow
DC : Flash
Escape from New York
E.T.
Fifth Element
Fight Club
Firefly
Goonies
Gremlins
Horror

Karate Kid
Nightmare before Christmas
Predator
Pulp Fiction
Rocketeer
Scarface
Star Trek - Classic
Star Trek - The Next Generation (announced during 12 days of Xmas)
Taxi Driver
Terminator
Terminator 2
Tomorrowland
Universal Monsters

Rumored
Garbage Pail Kids
Alien Wave 3 (shown at SDCC 14)
Horror Wave 2 (Leather face and Chucky so far announced on fb group by Reis)
Nightmare Before Christmas Wave 2
Universal Monsters (possible)


So some of these have started to show up now.

My initial thoughts of the ones that I have seen are that they are as crappy as I expected them to be. I don't really like the whole "Retro" figure movement that Funko is pushing but they do have some great licenses.

Most of the humans look terrible but the alien/monster type looks like they can be okay background characters. We'll see once the actually get released.

So far I have gotten the Rocketeer, BTTF Doc Brown, and T-800s. I have the Xeno from Alien but that doesn't really count because that WAS actually sculpted in the 70s.

They are all really short compared to your common Joe figure. This helps with the Doc Brown figure though because his head is ridiculously huge on his body. I think it will look okay on regular scaled figure because it is a pretty good sculpt compared to most of the Funko human faces.

The Rocketeer's helmet is removable which makes it look huge on his figure.

The T-800 Endoskeletons are ok. The sculpts are passable and they make good robot figures. I like the Playmates one a little better though. These 2 are actually pretty tall and are a little taller than the Joe Colton figure I have at my desk. I like the non-chrome one better because it looks a lot more realistic. One ting I found odd about the chrome version was that it is larger than the non-chrome one. Everything seems to be a little bigger on it. Especially the head.

I'd seen the Alien ones, but saw a Rocketeer in person the other day. If you're a fan of how shitty 3.75" action figures were pre nineteen eighty and two these are right up your alley.

I don't know, I have some pre 1980 figures that are better than these. Heck I even have some happy meal figures better than these (MOTU 2K, Universal Monsters, & Small Soldiers to name a few). Chap Mei and True Heroes/Legends are all waaaaayyyyy better than these. I'll still grit my teeth and get a couple of these because that is probably the only official version that will ever happen. It is still frustrating Funko/Super7 went this route with the 4" stuff but went SA with the 6" figures. Hopefully they will do a 4" Legacy type line someday. I'de love some of those GOT and Magic figures in 4", as well as some of their ReAction stuff with better sculpts. If not at least BFS and the 4H are going to have some nice fantasy based figures out in the next couple years.

I do think I will be able to salvage Doc Brown though he does have a fairly decent head sculpt that I think will fit nicely in with my modern stuff.

Funko posted this picture the other day. Most of the bodies look bad and may be usable as background characters. The heads on the other hand, look pretty good. Especially for the Horror and Monsters series.

I'd pay 10 bucks for that Elsa Lanchester if I saw her on the peg. There are plenty of nude torsos out there to build a great 1:18 Bride on.

I have heard these are showing up at TRU, FYE, and Wal-Mart so you might run into one.

According to EE the UM figures are supposed to be released this month, but as there are only 9 days left I find that unlikely.

Wal-mart carries these? Maybe a regional Wal-Mart, or one that actually does restock in their toy department. I generally don't bother with FYE, not even sure if the mall still has one, but they have been to have a surprise from time to time. TrU..I'll never find them in all the clutter. That leaves me with Hastings, which has a track record for carrying these.


I see Eric Draven comes with the lightning rod. Any point if there's no Top Dollar for him to duel?

Wal-Mart is supposed to have them up in the trading card section. I haven't been to a Wal-Mart yet to verify if it is just one-off or they are at multiple Wal-Marts yet.

Really? I don't peruse that section anymore, so I'll have to check that out. I say regional, as one or two out in California got overstock MOTU Classics Granamyr (and a couple of others).

I'm still trying t figure out if the Dallas and Lambert in spacesuits from Alien are actual products, or just customs they had on display.

That entire back row of Firefly figures just makes me depressed.

SO these showed up in the card aisle today. It looks like the display has the Alien figures and The Rocketeer.

How much were they?

And are you saying they had the figures, or they just had space/pegs set up but no product?

They come in a cardboard display of 12 or 15 figures. I didn't see a price. The card aisle is right next to the express checkouts so it can get crowded over there.

I just checked for these last week, I suppose I'll have to go back and look again.

So these were in a cardboard box display type thing? And the selection of figures were random?

Ahh, o.k. I hope Wal-Mart has the Alien figures cheaper than Hastings. $16.99...WTF?

And the Rocketeer was only $10??? I don't get that.

I hope so!

I'd like to get one of the Kane and Ripley figures and make the white spacesuit version of Ripley.

But that wasn't going to happen at Hastings/$16.

Even $10 bucks is more than I'm wont to pay outside of a couple of figures.

True, but you know I love Alien/s, so I'm willing to part with $10 per.

They are showing up at Barnes & Nobel and Books a Million.

B&N had the Alien ones for $10. I haven't seen them at Walmart yet but they are reported at 9.98 there.
There is also a large display box that should be released in Octoberish...
From the picture I saw it had Firefly, Terminator, UM, Pulp Fiction, Buffy, Horror

not sure what stores will get those though.

I'm trying to figure out why WM has these with the trading cards, they are action figures so shouldn't they be with the other action figures?

That is where the put most of their Funko bobblehead, vinyl figures, and other random collectibles. I guess they see those in that type of category.

Its still better than those books stores that just put them wherever they happen to have an empty space...
