Palitoy revival; ReAction Figures!

Postby Space Commander » 15 Feb 2014 14:17

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but Palitoy not only made the original :originalaf: Action Force figures, they also made the original Star Wars ones, too. A new series of toys, designed specifically to emulate the design style of those Star Wars figures has been produced. What's more, this new range also includes the figures that were designed (but never released) for Ridley Scott's film, Alien, back in 1979.

They're made by Funko / Super 7, and they're called ReAction Figures;

I wonder if we can interest them in adding :af: Action Force to their range...? :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: That'd be the coolest thing ever.

Would be very cool but Hasbro will never let the rights go.

But maybe they could work out a licensing deal whereby both companies make a profit..., and we get the figures that we want (and might otherwise never see again) in the toyshops, and all three parties win!

If anyone's got any contacts, it might be worth pointing them in this direction...?

I've seen their other figures they're releasing under the ReAction line and they seem a bit derpy, but again looking at their Game of Throne they have the talent to do a good job.

There's a precedent for Hasbro releasing an IP to another manufacturer in Sideshow Collectibles GI Joe figures.

Their work on the Alien license is based on prototypes and preproduction work from the late 70s, the new stuff they're making is off their own drawing board, if they had access to the old Palitoy moulds I'd be all for it, but not so much in their ReAction style.

Uh, Dave? Anyone seen Dave? Mr Tree, please report to reception! You've got some moulds to find!

It'd be cool if we could get Funko and Hasbro talking....

And I thought it was just a coincidence that my favourite mug had "Manufactured by the Dave Tree Tea Company" stamped on the underside...!

When I've got some spare change, (don't hold your breath!), I think I'll order one or two of these figures. If they're up-to-scratch, maybe I'll compose a letter to Funko / Super 7 all about :af: and Hasbro....

I would love to be able to take my nephews to the toyshop and see all new :af: s for sale there.

Woah, looks like Zica Toys are getting in on the retro action, too. The Six Million Dollar Man is back; :mrgreen:
