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.

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.
