Another Super7 Star Wars Tribute Figure

At this past San Diego Comic-Con, Super7, maker of Reaction 3 3/4" figures, released their follow-up to last year's Space Wars Headhammer figure. At the mega-convention, Robot "Maria" from the 1927 black and white sci-fi film Metropolis made her debut on a Star Wars: The Power of the Force tribute card.  While the films have no connection to each other, a connection concerning the character of Maria can obviously be made. She was the inspiration George Lucas and company used with creating our favorite protocol droid. To honor this connection, Super7 not only made a 3 3/4" figure of her on a POTF cardback with coin but they managed to make her in a way that even Hasbro claims to not be able to; she's vac metalized.

SDCC 2019 – The Hasbro Booth

As we prepare for Hasbro's Star Wars panel, which begins today at 2 PM PST, we can't help but pour over the images from Hasbro's booth this year in anticipation. Hasbro once again impresses with the sheer amount of product and displays including a very impressive Sarlacc and Jabba's Palace diorama. Now our friends over at Rebelscum have inquired about that many of the "new" figures in the Jabba's Palace dio, which include  6" versions of the Rancor, 8D8, EV-99, Gonk droid, and even a tortured 2-1B droid, and as of now it appears they are all customs for the display. But as fans recall the Trash Compactor Luke was also considered a custom in a previous Hasbro display until a year later he was [...]

Space Wars Headhammer Review

At this year's San Diego Comic-Con, Super 7 who has not only based their line look and action figure designs off of Kenner, released yet another tribute piece and this time it is a pretty deep cut. The Alien - "Space Wars Headhammer" Tribute Xenomorph 3.75" ReAction Figure with coin which retailed for $15 at the convention is a clear nod to the "original" alien Hammerhead from Kenner's 1978 Star Wars line. Now how this repaint of the ReAction Alien figure even makes any sense is because when Kenner was designing the prototype Alien figure back in 1979, they used Hammerhead as the base of their initial sculpt. Image courtesy of aliencollectors.com ReAction's SDCC release would not the be the first time Hammerhead's classic [...]
