Review: Super7 x Funko Alien ReAction Dallas Action Figure

Super7 x Funko Alien ReAction Dallas Action FigureI actually laughed when I popped Dallas out of his cardback, due to my shock when I saw the back of the figure's jacket read "Nostromo" on it. This was a real surprise detail, and one that likely would not have been on the final production figure had he been produced by Kenner in 1979 as planned. If you ever wanted a Tom Skerrit toy, your ship has come in. It's a small ship, but it's a ship all the same.

Zica Toys Six Million Dollar Man Figures Hit USA

Zica Toys posted this shot to Facebook showcasing the first packaged shots of their Six Million Dollar Man action figures!  The figures are shipping now to online sellers like our pals/sponsors/employers at Entertainment Earth, where we have an order open, so we'll be reviewing these as soon as possible.

On the Mego Museum forum the folks from Zica Toys also let these nuggets fly:

"Just an FYI for everyone, over half of the first production run has been sold through pre-orders alone. Now that they're in stock and shipping I feel like the remaining stock will sell out fairly fast, especially since a lot of people aren't crazy about placing pre-orders and would rather wait until the product is actually available. The figures will be on display at Toy Fair so there's a possibility that another production run may happen. However, the variant Steve Austin in blue tracksuit figure will not be produced again. Once the current stock of that figure is gone that's it."


"Prototypes for the remaining four figures and two variants are being worked on now."

The back of the packaging shows Dr. Rudy Wells, Oscar Goldman, Mr. X, and Barney Hiller.

Zica's Retro Six Million Dollar Man 3 3/4-Inch Figures Tantalizingly Close

According to a post at Mego Museum's forums, the Six Million Dollar Man 3 3/4-inch figures are in the USA, through customs, and likely to be in the Zica Toys warehouse next week.  There are two versions of Steve Austin and a Bigfoot that, well, who doesn't want a Bigfoot?  As far as I know I've never seen the show and I want these figures.

As far as I know, no packaged photos have surfaced of these guys just yet.  The cardbacks have - they look good - but no final samples.

Also, you can/should pre-order yours and spread the word if you like this kind of thing.  So far just Zica Toys and Funko/Super 7 are making stuff, so let's all fan the flames to get some more interest going.  (I ordered my set!)
