ALIEN!!!! The card, the packing and espically the figure all look like they were produced in the late 70's/early 80's. Really cool (didn't want to pay $100 for the whole set, they were like $17 a pop).

Anyway, thought you guys might like to see them... I'm sure some or many of you have already seen them, but for those (like me) who haven't...

Cool figures, this is the super7 finally made after the vintage line was cancelled in the 80s, these are the exact same figures they were going to release back then i think, theres a big thread on this in the vintage section of RS, apparently theres more lines to come.

So the figures in the bubble(s) were made in the 70's/80's?

(sorry I missed the other thread or I wouldn't have started this one!)

Sorry, bad explanation on my behalf, these are off the same protos they made back them but the line never made it to the stores, so not the same figures, just a throwback from them, so your spot on in spotting that they had an 80s feel, i mentioned there was a thread on RS about these because i thought it might be of interest to you, theres lots of great information in that thread about the history of this line, really interesting reading, ive also heard this might not be the only thing they put out, ive heard talk of a Jaws and Mad max line, im not sure if thats fact or just speculation at this point, cheers and nice figures.

I just did a little looking around and found articles saying that other lines in the pipeline are: Terminator, Terminator 2, Escape From New York, Firefly, Goonies, Buffy, Bill & Ted, Universal Monsters, Back To The Future and Dark Crystal.

Some of these possible releases make me think "Meh" and a bunch are cool as hell.

You should post pics when you open them. Be cool to see them all displayed together.
