Wow....just, wow.  These have to be huge next year, right?  I would think so anyways.  I didn't get any of the Alien ones, but thought they looked pretty nifty.  Goonies?  I'm definitely in.  Maybe a few others as well, depending on price and all of that.  Pretty cool news, thanks for sharing Scott.

This is awesome, and likely to get me to purchase some of the 5 POA Star Wars figures to go along with these. I'm in for at least Back to the Future, and probably some stuff from Alien and Terminator.

Firefly?  Cool.  I hope these will be available at TRU or someplace like that.

Post by: Greg on September 2, 2013, 10:22 PM
It's cool to see that so many properties will be getting four inch figures. I just hope they won't all be $20 per figure like the Alien figures. If it ends up being a premium price for vintage quality, I will be more than happy to pass.

Brian from ReAction posted about this in the RS forum over the weekend. (More specifically commenting on the strategic alliance with Funko)

The thing that bothers me is that they are saying now they they will send a free "mystery figure" out to all the people who pre-ordered the Alien figs directly from them. (The ones that went up on BBTS and EE were much cheaper)

But they don't say anything about the people who ordered the Early Bird sets getting the mystery figure too. And if anyone deserves it, it's that segment of collectors, the people that ponied up right away to help support the line. (Yes, I am personally invested in this)

The whole 2-pack prototype thing has left a bad test in a lot of people's mouths, so I hope they do the right thing and show us some love by sending out the mystery figure with all the Early Bird sets too. It's a real PITA trying to be a completist in this line and they haven't even been released yet.

It's an interesting choice of properties slated for next year, to be sure. Escape from New York figures? Only my favorite movie of all time, so bring em on. Aliens and Predator sound cool too.

Dark Crystal I don't really get because there actually was an action figure line for these, albeit stillborn.

The one I simply cannot believe they whiffed on is V. OMG, this is the one every 80's kid wanted! They actually had a line in the works too, just never materialized. I would buy those in a frigging heartbeat.

Post by: P-Siddy on September 3, 2013, 09:59 AM
I didn't see the price point listed in that article, but assume it's from pre-orders.  Wow!  $20/figure... and 5 PoA, 4".  Definitely not worth it.  Especially since you can get some larger scale Aliens figures for a couple bucks cheaper with more PoA and better likenesses.  I guess we're paying for the nostalgia factor.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jeff on September 3, 2013, 11:14 AM
Steve, the original "ReAction" Alien figures set that kicked off this line this summer had a price of $20 each or $100 for the 5-figure set. 

But, with the new agreement with Funko, it looks like going forward they may be coming in closer to $15 each thanks Funko's increased production capability. 

Here's the thing McMetal was talking about - the freebie for the Super7 Alien  buyers and the updated price info:

Super7 x FUNKO ReAction Figures! (http://blog.super7store.com/2013/08/30/super7-x-funko-reaction-figures/)

Quote
Funkoô and Super7ô are excited to announce a new strategic partnership to debut and extend the ReAction Figureô 3 3/4″ line..

One of the most unique and highly anticipated toys of San Diego Comic-Con 2013 was the pre-order and launch of Super7′sô ReAction Figuresô Alienô line. From the ďLost PrototypeĒ 2-pack and Early Bird Kit to the the full reveal of the final Alienô ReAction figuresô , the collector community was in a frenzied state over this new ďretro styleĒ look of toys within the action figure community. At the same time, Funkoísô continued growth and expanding product line made itís San Diego Comic-Con booth one of the single most travelled spots of the entire convention. After years of sharing the same aisle together, Super7ô and Funkoô saw an incredible opportunity to leverage each otherís unique business insights into a more strategic partnership. Beginning with the launch of the Highly anticipated Alienô ReAction Figuresô and then several licenses to be announced soon, both companies look to establish a firm collaborative footprint in the market with the ReAction Figures ô line.

Our original SRP was $19.95, and the 5 figure set was $100. Funko will be able to produce in much larger quantities and wider distribution, and has a $14.95 SRP, which is $75 for the set. We are aware of the discrepancy in price with the new agreement, so there is a additional, secret figure that will be included in the Super7 pre-orders that will be available only for those who pre-ordered sets of Alien from us, and will not be available anywhere else. (And preorders are long since closed.) We think it will be a nice thank you to everyone who believed in this project and pre-ordered ahead of time, being part of the excitement of the release of this long-awaited line of figures.

Thank you to everyone who has helped making this toy line come true Ė we have a lot more surprises in store for you!

That sounds neat, but my nostalgia dies around the $10 mark.

Universal Monsters had a Kenner-esque line from Remco that was good (especially for Remco).

Some company made a silly looking Terminator 3 3/4" line...years before Playmates. I have the endo skeleton figure.

Post by: Ben on September 3, 2013, 06:09 PM
This sounds amazing. I love the idea of Firefly, Terminator, and Buffy figures the same size as my Star Wars figures. Now if they could get their hands on Star Trek...
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jesse James on September 3, 2013, 06:27 PM
Diddly mentioned this having some cross-appeal with the Star Wars figures, but again I wonder... these aren't new looking guys.  Definitely Kenner-esque in EVERY way...  right down to the simple dot with a curved line eye paint aps.

These, to me, are EVERYTHING I wish the new SW 5 POA figures were...  Simplistic in sculpt and paint ap styles...  The new Hasbro SW figures are crisp and intended to look good, with Hasbro even saying they think it's some of their best sculpting work.   :-\  While I don't agree with that, I do think they're solid efforts to blend in with the rest of the hyper realistic stuff we've gotten since basically 1995...

I WISH there was a line of Star Wars figures like this, adding to the original Vintage 78-85 line...  If they wanted my money, that's all they'd need to do...  Tarkin, Fleet Trooper, Bikini Leia, Stormtrooper Han, Sandtrooper...  Hasbro would destroy me with stuff like this, for Star Wars, that blends seamlessly with the original line and expands upon it.  Even dumbed down weapon sculpts...  wow.

As it stands, like I said, Aliens, Terminator, etc., have my interest....

not all, but some do.  Price will dictate how much.  And if you have to order by the set, or if case packs are maybe decent and I can break up a set with someone...  I really do want to be "in" for this stuff when it comes out.  It's all pricing and what they ultimately do.

Now, that said, if Aliens still was doing waves of Snap Kit figures under Hot Toys, I'd be a much happier Aliens fan. :)
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Darby on September 3, 2013, 08:30 PM
I'm all about it. BTVS in particular. I'd love to see Hasbro tackle a vintage esque line like this for SW. I think there's a market for it and if history is any guide Hasbro will look to follow this trend in the next year or two.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Scockery on September 3, 2013, 08:46 PM
Adding to vintage Kenner in style would be neat to a point (original trilogy only). But then they couldn't bother to get rocket-firing Fett's foot holes the vintage size.

Of course,  when talking "retro" style, we must remember that vintage Kenner SW evolved. Sculpting improved. They ditched the telescoping sabers. They started to use a few posed stances (Hoth Luke, Jedi Luke, black Bespin Guard). More soft goods. But most folks talking retro probably think 1977, lightsaber inside arms, cheap plastic capes, simpler sculpting.

So would you want Tarkin as they'd make him in 1978 or 1985? Rebel Fleet Trooper? Mon Mothma? Garindan? Ceremony Luke? 
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jesse James on September 3, 2013, 09:07 PM
I don't think the differences (evolution) was drastic enough that it matters terribly...  to me the sculpts didn't improve too much really.  I think they could do whatever and I'd generally be happy so long as it was truly that dumbed down 78-85 look...  These new 5POA figures are, detail-wise, as good as anything 1995-now...  There will always be one here or there that's lacking some, but besides the articulation count these are figures that aren't different to what we've had since the new line began.

On sabers, I'd be ok maybe even seeing both styles...  all it would take is a new arm. 

On PT...  It's like 6" to me.  Don't go ape**** putting out 90 figures immediately, dip into it slowly and see how it goes at first, but I'd not be totally opposed to PT...  Some will, some won't, just like 6" figures.  Retro looking QGJ, OWK, and Maul though?  I've seen customs and kinda dig what was done there...  I don't think I'd mind.  I probably wouldn't pick up every knob they put out but the mains?  I think I'd be in.

A Vader that style that had a pop off helmet?  Hells yeah.

When I got into the hobby it was prior to the modern line's existance...  I customized a LOT of vintage figures of my own.  The obligatory "Scanner Tech" with an officer's head on an AT-ST Driver's body, the Fleet Trooper using a Han base and DST head with some extra extensions glued on and whatnot (same with Antilles only different paint).  A Tarkin repaint of an officer and a random 3.75" figure's head....  I loved that stuff.  It was all I had and while I wanted something nice looking, they still had the old sculpts and the paint details weren't much better.  No "washes" and whatnot.  No multiple layered eyes. 

Imagine if the right arm popped on and off, and one arm had a sliding saber, and the other was open handed to hold a separate saber weapon?  I'd be totally into that little extra "umph" for sure. :)
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Darby on September 3, 2013, 09:45 PM
There's a difference between 1978 and 1985 but like Jesse says it's pretty marginal. A figure that 'looks' like it belongs in the Kenner line would be good enough. I think the OT would be where all the action is (there are a couple dozen action figures right off that I think would be desirable) but I'd welcome the PT and CW as well.

I'm really interested to see what they do for BTTF, Aliens and Predator.  Some Colonial Marines from Aliens?  Sure thing!  I'm with Jesse on one point though, I still wish there were more of those snap kit figures around.  I only ever ended up with one Alien and 2 Predator figures and never did score any of the Marines.

Post by: Jesse James on September 3, 2013, 11:42 PM
I ordered by the case...  Only reason I have mine, and what an investment.  They seem to sell for a ****load.

But man oh man, that line didn't get the expansion it rightfully deserved.  Hicks didn't even get done...  or Vasquez, or Hudson, or Mad About You, or Bishop.  Weird choices that may have had some likeness issue(?) were the choices instead...  except Ripley.

I love the Super7 Alien though...  So adorable.  Looks like he's got a little grin like the little baby alien at the end of Spaceballs.  "Ah cha cha!"

Depends on what you compare. Amanaman to Walrus Man? R2-D2 to EV-9D9?

It would matter to some people. I think if they did such a line, people would nitpick that stuff to death. LOL.

Post by: McMetal on October 30, 2013, 09:41 AM
I finally picked up the Super 7 Alien Reaction prototype SDCC exclusives via a BIN auction on eBay. I paid a lot, but I got one literally cheaper than any others I have seen up for auction since before SDCC even started, and I have been looking at these auctions every day since then trying to find one at a decent price.

I think I'm pretty happy. These are starting to get more scarce and I don't see the price dropping much lower than I paid, well, ever. Mine was at least $30 cheaper than what they are charging at BBTS.

Now if they would just go ahead and ship the Early Bird figures I paid for months ago...
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on January 4, 2014, 09:40 PM
Found out my Early Bird set with exclusive  blue cards + bonus figure has shipped! Should be here next week...psyched!
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on January 6, 2014, 10:17 PM
Well, this is not going to end well. I have been nervous about this deal for months, primarily because of the amount of time that has passed since I won the original auction for the early bird set on eBay. It is far too late at this point to use negative feedback as leverage or even open a case I am pretty sure. I was just hoping and hoping I was not going to get screwed over somehow.

Lo and behold, I get my package today and it only has 5 figures - the clear alien is conspicuously absent. The guy must have opened the box and removed it because the outside clearly has it listed as part of the case order. #$%^&*() >:(

Anyway, I sent a nice email asking about it but the fact that it wasn't part of the order pretty much tells me he is not going to give it up.

This is a cool line but it's turning out to be just one expensive headache after another. If I have to pick up just that clear alien off eBay I am going to get raped.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on January 7, 2014, 10:10 AM
What a prick. He admitted he opened up the sealed case and removed the bonus figure. He claims it was "not part of the original auction" which of course is a load of BS. Now I just have to decide how expensive this is going to be to sort out and how big a stink I want to make about it. Weak, weak sauce.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jeff on January 7, 2014, 10:22 AM
Stuff like this is why I never use ebay anymore.  Used to be such a great place, now it just seems like a rip-off den.  Best of luck to you trying to get it resolved.  Going to be really pricey trying to track down a different set with the clear alien. :(
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on January 7, 2014, 09:54 PM
Yeah...I actually use eBay a LOT, but have gotten pretty shrewd over the years and it's very rare I have any kind of unpleasant dealing honestly. This was a perfect storm type thing though - high dollar item, extended length of time, an unexpected announcement of a surprise bonus figure, and resulting "nebulous" ownership rights.

I did get a reply back tonight and he agreed to let me have the item provided I wanted to pay for it.  ::)

But you know what, I proposed fronting additional money in the first place, so I opened the door. And it's a good price, considering what I would pay for one otherwise by itself on eBay. So I took the deal.

I just figure I could be indignant and self-righteous about the whole thing and stick to my principles but I had a lot of doubt I would have gotten any helpful leverage out of eBay, and at the end of the day, I wanted the figure and this was the best option available.

I'll just have to make it up in sales.  ;)

BIG REVEAL at EE! (http://www.entertainmentearth.com/hitlist.asp?spotlight=3447&id=JE-405087801) 

From EE:
We are excited to announce an EXCLUSIVE first look at several of Super 7 and Funko's newly released ReAction 3 3/4 inch figures! They've added hot new licenses to the line including: Terminator, Predator, Back to the Future, Escape from New York, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Goonies, Universal Monsters, Pulp Fiction,  A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and many more!


Pics from Predator, Terminator, Escape from New York, Rocketeer,  and Nightmare Before Christmas are up, more will be revealed as we lead up to Toy Fair!

Looks like they are starting at $10 each or so... not too bad for a small company release compared to the $15-20 Alien starting point.

Looks like BBTS has put up their ReAction pre-orders (http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/search.aspx?search=reaction) as well this morning.  Also charging $10 each for the new ones.  No pics though since those are EE exclusive (see above).
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on February 7, 2014, 12:58 PM
You mean the pictures are EE exclusives or the figures? Guessing it's just the pics, right?

I'm blown away by a lot of the listings, but somehow I don't think some of these other lines came out as well as Alien. The Terminator humans are practically un-recognizable. And poor Snake Plissken, what did they do to you?!

Big difference I guess when you get away from the original Kenner sculpts.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: P-Siddy on February 7, 2014, 01:11 PM
Well, I think the whole retro thing is that the likeness is not quite as good as they are now.  I mean the Kenner SW figures didn't look like Luke, but all the same, I didn't care back then.

I am tempted by the "Firefly" figures and some others, but as I mentioned earlier, there's only 5 of the crew.  I don't want to get involved and pick up the five if there are no plans to do the whole crew.  Is there anyone to ask about this?  At Toy Fair maybe?
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jeff on February 7, 2014, 01:38 PM
They have already said that lines that do well will get a wave 2.  Lines that don't sell well, this is probably it.  So, if you want River/Book/etc, buy Wave 1 and make sure all your friends do too!

I have Funko on my Toy Fair Tour Schedule, I'm sure they will have a lot more info on the line and plans for the future available then.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines

Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Greg on February 7, 2014, 05:10 PM
Bleh... these new figures don't look too good. I could appreciate the Alien figures emulating the cancelled Kenner versions, but these figures just seem like all-around cheap cash grabs. For as much flak as I have given Hasbro lately about 5POA SL/Mission Poopies, at least they kept modern sculpting and lower prices for the line. Enough ranting for me, I should offer props to Funko for finding a way to make money off great film and TV properties while saving on sculpting and likeness costs.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on February 7, 2014, 10:06 PM
I'm definitely excited to hear more about what they have planned. And yeah, I guess in retrospect the early SW figures were not great likenesses either. But I think like Kenner they do pretty well with non-humans. The Terminator thing looked pretty cool, and Rocketeer came out ok.

No question they are going to get more of my 4" money this year than Hasbro.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Ben on February 7, 2014, 11:15 PM
I've been waiting for a Rocketeer action figure for 20 years, so I'm glad to see that one. The Predators look nice too. Those Terminator figures need a little more time in the oven, methinks. Maybe they'll look better with production paint jobs.

Post by: Jesse James on February 8, 2014, 04:34 PM
I hate those Predators...  I think they're terrible, and the humans have a little less of the Kenner/Star Wars look than I like.  The figures from Alien had a much more of the Vintage Star Wars look to them I felt.  These, not so much...  I think the Rocketeer is very cool though.

Did some preorders on BBTS but need help with US Distribution.  They're run by friends of mine, and I really hope they take off because that Alien is gorgeous and is coming with multiple hands, an egg, and a facehugger for accessories...  LOVE good Alien figures in 4" scale. 

The WW2 stuff they're hoping to expand.  Those are Barbarosa Germans, a first, Spring Offensive guys...  And they're supposedly doing Russians to complement them as a next series.  If those come out, I'm giddy.  Nobody did Russians, but everyone wanted them!

I've been told US is almost a lock as well...  After Russians.  I'm hoping for some variety to what 21st/BBI/FOV wound up doing.  The Germans have the rolled up sleeves, so it's a good variation to material that's been covered.  They're solid figures.

Their modern US infantry were well received except for the non-removable buckets.

I'm more interested in WW2 (or other historical eras) and now these Aliens, man...  If they do Colonial Marines as a series?  I'm in heaven!

Several sites have pictures of most of the rest of the stuff. I find a lot of this stuff is really hit or miss, maybe partly due to source material.

I think the Horror stuff looks pretty great, think they will do well with those. The Firefly figures aren't atrocious, but man, those BTTF figs are not good at all.

I'm kind of on the fence with the Pulp Fiction stuff, love the cardbacks and the figure selection, but kind of hit or miss with the execution. Gimp is a must though.

Strikes me as odd to have 1-2 figure waves too, guess they are just testing the waters. Hope they have more Escape from NY stuff in the pipeline.

I was surprised to find a full set of the Alien ReAction figures after work today at Barnes and Noble. I grabbed another Kane and Alien figure to open since I have the full blue carded set MOC. $9.95 each, not bad at all.

I hope these do well and we get to see the upcoming figures here too, seems like a good outlet for them.

Post by: McMetal on May 7, 2014, 10:29 AM
They were next to the Walker Dead Pop Vinyl figures I think, generally in the same area where you would see the GoT figs or their SW 6" stuff. I just saw them sitting on a shelf and they immediately caught my eye. Good stuff.

Incredibly awesome if true. Seems like we do not yet have "official" confirmation though.

They are also releasing some exclusive Alien ReAction figures in new paint schemes and possibly new sculpts with exclusive Alien Egg packaging. Speculation is that these may be Dallas and Lambert.

Excited!

Looks like it is official:

Those are some neat exclusive items... only downside is that they are exclusives. The Egg Chamber is something I would be very interested in if it hits normal retail, especially with other companies making video game Aliens and Colonial Marine-esque figures.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jesse James on July 2, 2014, 01:06 AM
It's a very big "if", but IF that is somehow available, I'm buying...  A little egg chamber floor?  I'm all for it, just for displaying my Hot Toys/Hiya Toys 1:18 Aliens around it.

I have a couple eggs from the Microman Alien Warrior (Not cheap), and they're among my favorite bitties.

Now, if that is REALLY expensive and REALLY hard to get, I'm out.  It's appearing to be just a simple base, maybe a couple removable eggs, and looks like some kinda cardboard background.  I wouldn't pay a ton for it simply because I can cast the eggs I have easily enough. 

I have a Kenner Queen Hive Playset I got some years ago, and a pile of eggs would certainly be a dandy display system for my Alien hoard.

Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on July 3, 2014, 11:18 PM
So...turns out the price on this is going to be $100 and they will be limited to 250 pieces.  :(

I guess Brian Flynn was explaining over at RS how they were only able to get limited use out of the molds for this thing and could not afford to do it as a mass produced item.

Of all the SDCC exclusives, and there are a number I want this year, this is the one that concerns me the most. I went ahead and just pre-ordered one off eBay and will likely do so again just to hedge my bets. (I had bad luck with my Super 7 pre-orders last year)

This has been one hellaciously expensive line to collect. I kinda hope this is it for them after this. I love what we have gotten but it's not cheap or easy to be a completist with this stuff.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jesse James on July 3, 2014, 11:27 PM
Wow, yeah, $100? 

But given what it is, which is a classically 70's retro playset with the backdrop and stuff, I don't think I'd ever have dropped that much on something so simplistic.  $50 maybe, as all I really wanted was that egg base it's on.  I don't think they'd have sold like gangbusters at $50 even though, if a larger production and distribution run was cranked out.  Not many folks are willing to plunk down big money for just basically a big stand.

I still dig it.  I still would've loved one.  I won't be buying one though, now.  Short of a pile of the stand showing up from some random Chinese Ebay seller.  :-X

The nice folks at Barnes and Noble let me take the nifty ReAction figure display box home for free last night. They sold out weeks ago and never re-stocked so I figured it couldn't hurt to ask. Now I have a place to display the swanky Egg Chamber playset if I am every lucky enough to get my hands on one.  :)

Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jesse James on July 14, 2014, 02:25 PM
So if you want the playset, you can now simply pre-order it and you'll get one.  It's resin (IE: That's why it's $100, haha) and if enough orders come in they'll have enough to tool a mold for it and do injection molded plastic.  That's only if enough pre-orders come in.

The price at $100 isn't as outrageous now that I know it's resin...  Not cheap.  There wasn't mention of a price drop at all though, if enough orders come in to get a steel mold tooled to do plastic.

Hmm, that's cool of them, but it won't be exactly the same as the first edition. And the packaging looks different too. I do applaud them for acknowledging their audience though.

Hopefully this helps to bring the price down on the SDCC sets too.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jesse James on July 14, 2014, 08:40 PM
I'm not seeing much difference in the base, just the box...  I actually like the black box better, than the blue one.  I think it just looks more in tune with the carded figures I guess.  It doesn't seem like anything is different but the numbered packaging for the LE blue box I'd think.

The bases seem pretty identical to me, at least in the photos, or as identical as something that's probably hand painted can ultimately be.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Greg on July 14, 2014, 09:29 PM
$100 seems fair for a low production run playset. Very cool that Super 7 is opening this up for a pre-order for everyone not attending SDCC. I must admit I am tempted.

Jesse, is the Acid Rain statue/base set made from resin? Since I don't have any non-plastic toys, I am trying to get an idea of the construction/weight of the playset.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jesse James on July 14, 2014, 10:07 PM
Good Q Greg, and one I didn't know myself till I saw a review of it when looking for reviews of the Quad Eyes.  Apparently it IS resin.  I did not know this, but it helps with the statue (which is a real statue, I guess, in some museum) because it's weightier than normal.

All those bases/statues are hand weathered by the guy who invented that stuff, plus autographed on the bottom.  Color me actually somewhat impressed at that.  I didn't realize upon my pre-order of that, that it'd be a LE that would sell out as fast as it did.  Go figure that all I really wanted was a cool statue and base for my stash of goodies and the "set" as it were, was really an afterthought.

Now, I'm like you...  Kind of a non-plastic-phobe about toys.  Resin is, sort of, a plastic though, so I give it a pass.  It's obviously real heavy though, or typical (cheaper A/B) stuff is compared to like PVC or ABS.  Some call resin "liquid plastic" which I find a tad misleading (repro people I've noticed like to go that route, and I think partially because of people like us).  They're sort of plastics/polymers though if my understanding is correct, but different from ABS and PVC's obviously.

There's lots of different resins too though, with different properties.  Depends what you need it for.  I like resins then for that purpose but they're tougher to work with than any plastic I ever encountered, from a model/custom standpoint.

The toys themselves appear to be all plastic, injection molded, and/or hard rubbers/PVC's.

I have a sneaking suspicion the upcoming Alien playset could hit the threshold of injection molded plastic, and I wish it'd see a price cut because of it, but I guess that's not on the table.  I want one, bad, but $100 for a glorified stand is out of my budget.  A really kick ass glorified stand, mind you, but still that's what it would be to me so I've gotta limit myself.  As it is I bought all the figures including some extras which I wasn't going to do at one point.

I think it's awesome and double awesome that they're basically letting people order and will make as many as they get orders for.  No better way to crank them out than that.  And I'd love to say I'd give anything for an egg chamber to display my Hot Toys and other Alien(s) figures in, but right now I need to cool my jets on toy buying.  Star Wars is (theoretically) going to pick up here and I will need to allocate some buying power to them.  Thank god they've abandoned cool army builders for the most part.  :-X
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on July 23, 2014, 11:24 PM
I just got word that my remote field agent in San Diego was able to score the Egg Chamber playset for me tonight! Hells Yeah!

This was the #1 exclusive I was most concerned about, huge relief to have gotten lucky on this thing. It will fit in perfectly with all my other blue carded ReAction stuff...  :)

I believe there are also a few of the "Mystery Figure" Eggs coming my way too, waiting confirmation on those...

BTW, if anyone is able to verify about many different blind boxed figures there are I would sure appreciate knowing. I thought for sure I had heard somewhere that it would be 3 different ones, but now I'm thinking there may be more.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on July 26, 2014, 04:43 PM
Brian Flynn who owns Super 7 has been answering questions over at Rebelscum and has basically explained that the more tan base in the blue box is the comic con exclusive, the one that is up for preorder until tomorrow will be charcoal in color, in the black box.

They are doing hand cast resin unless they hit some magic number of pre-orders at which point it becomes more cost effective to go with injection molding.  Here's his exact post:

Quote
Injection molding is what you typically see with most plastic. You create a two/three part metal mold, shoot the plastic in at a high pressure (forcing all air bubbles, etc. out). The plastic is melted heading into the mold, and then cures and dries inside the mold so that it pops out in its final form. The metal molds to make the plastic are very expensive. A mold big enough to make this playset in one piece is somewhere between the size of your microwave and the inside of your oven. It is incredibly expensive to make because of the size of the material needed to withstand the pressure of injection molding. The plastic itself become relatively cheap, so, if you make tens of thpusands of units, you can amortize your mold costs into a small fee per piece of plastic injected. If you make a very low amount of pieces, the mold cost becomes a huge part of each per piece cost.

With resin, you can use a variety of temporary molds (most often silicone), which is much cheaper, but they break down very quickly, and are only good for a limited number of pulls. Additionally, resin takes quite a while to cure and dry (not all resins, but many.) There are a ton of different kinds of resin, and the one we are using feels the most like injection plastic that we could find. In the case of resin, the material cost is much higher, and the labor of making them is higher, as in this case, they can literally only make 8 playsets per day with cure time on the resin.

Resin typically is a bit more fragile, but the resin we are using has a bit of flex to it, so we should only have issues with dropping onto hard surfaces. Does this help?

So, we'll see. 

I bit the bullet and ordered one - I don't like the price tag, but I want it.

Also this image of some mock-ups for future Alien figures was posted (it shows the lighter color base for the 250 first-run in the blue box) :

(http://i1.wp.com/www.actionfigureinsider.com/wpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/20140723-190809-68889838.jpg)

These are apparently the figures that are in the blind-buy eggs:

Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on July 26, 2014, 07:32 PM
Yeah, I pretty much knew it was going to be different, that's why I wanted the SDCC one so bad, more movie-faithful, IMHO.

I have been researching this, and I believe I have concluded that there are at least SIX (6) different blind bagged "mystery figures":

Kane - Spacesuit
Kane - Chestburster
Ripley - Spacesuit
Ripley - Plain
Alien - Plain
Alien - Clear

The Aliens were clearly shortpacked because there are almost none of them for sale on eBay right now, plenty of the other guys though. I believe I got the Ripley Spacesuit and Chestburster Kane in my preorders.

So not easy to be a completist with this line, but it's great stuff IMO.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jesse James on July 26, 2014, 09:33 PM
So the SDCC base is that light green and the regular base will be charcoal, and neither will have much paint detail I'm assuming?  Pretty much a "molded color" look?

The eggs look sort of almost removable, but not quite.  Hmmm.  I'm tempted to order really, but I don't think I will.  I'm really bummed that those other space suited figures probably won't be available (at least not easily) in the near future.  I'd buy those in a heartbeat.

I can't say for sure, but I understand it the way you just described.  The lighter base was the SDCC exclusive and is technically more screen accurate.  The charcoal base is the one that you can preorder as long as you decide before the end of tomorrow, and is more 'how we remember it' than screen accurate.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jesse James on July 26, 2014, 11:08 PM
I'd not really look at either as screen accurate and more like a 70's playset.  Screen accurate's the Hot Toys eggs, or Microman eggs...  They're actually multiple colors and stuff. :)

This reminds me of the Land of the Jawas or something.  One solid color, which is fine by me.  I'd still like one.  I just don't think I want one for $100.  I'll decide before tomorrow is up I suppose.

I'm glad to hear the news on those space suit guys though...  I'm guessing new heads will happen, perhaps?  Kane's pretty generic though so that's fine.  I just like that suit.  Those guys look good working on a Star Wars ship in space kinda thing.

I'll have to watch the movie again but I don't recall eggs being just a solid OD Green color, or charcoal, haha.  Pretty sure they were a bit more elaborate. :)  But they're definitely green and not black, so I know what the guy's saying.  There's just no paint detailing is all.

Like I said, "Screen accurate" to me would imply a pretty elaborate paintjob though and that doesn't jive at all with a "retro" playset feel.

I think that the surprise figure eggs were painted though, weren't they?  Multi-colored, kinda realistic.  Those reminded me of the Hot Toys Snap Kit eggs that the last series of figures came in.  They're 1/6 scale as well, but closed.

Are the playset eggs removable from the base?  They look it.

This is the Hot Toys Kane/Egg thing and I wish they'd mixed the eggs with the base...  green eggs, charcoal base, would look pretty cool and break the colors up without adding paint and detracting from the 70's playset feel.  :-\

This is very encouraging IMO as I think there is a greater likelihood now we will see the other lines start showing up soon too - BTTF, Escape From NY, Firefly, etc.

I was not overly impressed with the Rocketeer sculpt really, but I'm sure he looks much cooler with the helmet and rocket pack on.

I saw Mal and Jayne at V-Stock and I guess I'm underwhelmed.  I would really love to get them because I love Firefly, but I guess I'm spoiled be decent likenesses and articulation now.  Plus the head looks kind of wonky on the body... out of proportion, I guess.

Post by: Jesse James on August 9, 2014, 02:46 PM
I am gonna nab a rocketeer for custom use but otherwise I am not a fan of the other lines besides alien.  It didn't seem to work as well with those other lines as it did with Alien.  :-\

Post by: McMetal on August 9, 2014, 10:39 PM
Finally cracked open the SDCC Exclusive Alien Egg Chamber last night and wanted to provide a brief review, sans pictures.

It is, as I figured it would be, a very well done effort overall, not perfect, but pretty great for what it is.

The base is very heavy, moreso than any of the vintage Star Wars ones. It is similar in mold though in that it's more or less hollow, but it's dense, much more hefty than I expected. The coloring is definitely more of a darker charcoal grey and there is no paint at all applied. The eggs appear to be molded separately, but firmly stuck in place. One of them is open to simulate the scene from the movie.

The cardboard background is pretty nice, well painted, gives some illusion of depth and perspective, with a tiny rendition of the Engineer at the very top, as if at the end of a long upward arching hallway. Like the old Kenner playsets, it comes with additional cardboard "feet" you need to fold up to attach it to the slots in the base.

The only real gripe I have is that the majority of the footpegs appear to be too large for the peg holes in the figures' feet. I tried them out with both Kane and the Alien, but could only get them to fit onto 2 out of the 7. Maybe they would work better with the other characters, I haven't tried them with the ones from the Mystery Eggs yet, but it seems like those should be universal.

Speaking of which, I have been able to snag 5 of the 8 Mystery figures so far, just need the clear Alien and both clear Ripleys and I am caught up.  :)

Rocketeer is just showing up?  I ordered most of the line on Amazon and got that one in the mail about a month ago.   The BTTF figures already shipped too.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on August 10, 2014, 11:32 PM
I happened to be in one of those eclectic, more hipster-oriented toy stores today (not a usual stop) and was shocked to see a carded Snake Plissken on the pegs! There was no way the kid in me could possibly resist grabbing it on the spot. Unfortunately they only had the "Version 2" figure and not the other one with the leather jacket, but I'm sure I will be able to find that easily enough.

There were also a couple of the Alien and Firefly figures there, first time I had seen the latter too.

I also saw they were stocking the SW 6" figures, so this is definitely going to be added to the regular store rotation now.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: evenflow on August 11, 2014, 01:31 PM
The only one I am interested is the Crow, other than that my interest in this line is much less than I had anticipated.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jesse James on August 11, 2014, 08:22 PM
Yeah mine diminished once I saw final products...

The Alien playset probably has more heft to it because it's resin iirc.  I don't think they were going to do injection molded ones till they hit a certain number of orders for it at the con, so all the con ones are resin.  Some resins are real hefty, and others are light and airy, but for a big set like that I'd guess the resin was weighty stuff.

I wish the eggs were removable.  They were my fav aspect of it.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on August 11, 2014, 10:46 PM
Got my BTTF order today.  Love this line... and I don't mind them looking ****** at all, that's kind of the gimmick anyway.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jesse James on August 11, 2014, 11:01 PM
I liked the Kenner-ish look...  I felt like the others were too far some other direction.  What that direction was, i don't know.  the Alien line just looks different for some reason.  :-\
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on August 12, 2014, 03:15 PM
Well that is probably because the Alien figures ARE Kenner... They were never produced figures that Super 7 and Funko got the rights to. It was such a popular thing that this ReAction line sprung out of it.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on August 13, 2014, 11:30 AM
I've got a wishlist for this line...

Army of Darkness / Evil Dead
Beetlejuice
Big Trouble in Little China
Blade Runner
Tron
Silence of the Lambs
Blues Brothres
Ghostbusters
A Clockwork Orange
Robocop
Conan the Barbarian / Destroyer
Legend
Die Hard
X-Files
ET
Teen Wolf
Planet of the Apes
Spaceballs
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
The Thing
The Exorcist
Total Recall
Fifth Element
Rocky
Mad Max Trilogy
The Fly
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Hellboy
Killer Klowns From Outer Space
The Lost Boys

I'd love more Silent Film era figures too - Caligari, Metropolis...
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jesse James on August 14, 2014, 12:03 AM
Yeah I just expected the other ones to I guess look more Kenner-ish than they do.  They look just different enough for me to not take interest in them I guess.  :-\

I received the Snake Plissken figures I ordered online today, unpunched and with solid paint apps. Can't wait for the Duke figure!  :)

I think I'm down for all the Predators and probably the Terminator stuff as well. Pulp Fiction is a maybe, but beyond that probably not too much.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: P-Siddy on August 21, 2014, 06:12 PM
Speaking of Terminator figures.  I saw these at TRU today... even the variant (?) T-800 was there.  Of course one of the T-800 had a broken arm floating in package.

I would love to get some Firefly figures, but maybe not the ReAction ones.  I heard (though I've not read confirmation... or looked yet for proof) that Funko may produce some 6" Firefly figures for next year in their Legacy line.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on August 22, 2014, 12:06 AM
I skipped the Firefly figures but love the BTTF figures.  I got the chrome and regular T-800's this week, also the Sloth figure with the Superman emblem on his chest.

I love this line.

I picked up 4/6 Terminator figures at TRU today, no sign of Reese or Sarah. I asked and that was all they got so not sure about the case assortments there. Great figures though, really enjoying these.

Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on August 27, 2014, 11:00 PM
I ordered one of each.

My Chrome one has joints so loose I can't get it to stand up.  All the other figures I've gotten so far are fine, as is the non-chrome T-800.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jesse James on August 27, 2014, 11:52 PM
Does the chromed one feel the same?  I'm just curious...  I'm guessing not and it's all rigid plastic.  Kinda weird, and destined (like the original kenner 3PO) to not last, haha.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines

They're both pretty rigid.

The chrome one is a little lighter in weight maybe.

To me, these toys aren't exactly supposed to look good.

That said, the Chestburster isn't the best, I'd agree.

I do love the Facehugger though.

Post by: McMetal on September 13, 2014, 12:35 PM
Those all look fantastic to me. I have all the new sculpts from the SDCC blind bagged eggs and they are terrific. I really like the Chestburster Kane, but the Facehugger looks ever better. The new Alien is very reminiscent of the classic Kenner version.

Saw a bunch of the ReAction figures at TRU yesterday again, I hope they are selling well. I picked up another Tan Coat Snake Plissken for openers.

I'm not a fan of the chest burster either, but the facehugger's nifty.  The Microman Aliens actually have a wrapped up Facehugger available that's more realistic though so I may not buy Kane ultimately.  The new Hiya Toys have a realistic Facehugger running too...  That thing may be the scariest aspect of aliens.

The Ripley in Space Suit I may nab.  She'll look cool with the Kane figure.  Wish I had the others that were at SDCC.  The color variety looks good, and that figure (articulation aside) looks sharp just chilling with Star Wars guys for some reason.

Barnes and Noble had a big new display stand up today with the various lines in there - BTTF, Escape From New York, Firefly, Nightmare Before Christmas, and for the first time I have seen on pegs - the Universal Monsters and Horror figures. It was hard to choose between those last two but I ended up going with the Monsters. Between 3 stores I was able to pick up 7/8 of the figures, but no one had the Invisible Man. :(

I'll probably go back and get the Horror figures soon enough, they were pretty damn cool too.

At NYCC, it was announced by Disney that Funko had a license for Disney's Tomorrowland.  There was even an ultra limited exclusive sneak preview figure (http://www.jedidefender.com/gallery/files/gallery/Conventions/New_York_Comic_Con_2014/Miscellaneous/DSC_0749.JPG) that went up for sale when Disney released the trailer.

Funko had a lot of product at the show, but not much for company reps who knew about new stuff.  I heard a lot of rumors at the show though - Classic Star Trek, X-Files, Rocky Horror, the Lost Boys, Terminator 2; as well as wave 2s for Aliens, Firefly, and BTTF.  We'll see if any of it pans out though.

B&N isn't really convenient for me to go, but I was in one today and they had scads of all the lines.  I got to look them over in person and some are a lot cooler than I thought.  I'd dig the whole Universal Monsters line, personally. 

I also thought some of the Firefly and other characters had neat custom potential (I'm always looking). 

Some were pure ass though...  but I thought the chrome Terminator, while kinda goofy looking, was goofy in a fun way. :)

For anyone else that might care, the EE exclusive clear Invisible Man Universal Monsters ReAction figure is now in stock.

I just recently picked up the Glow in the Dark Creature from the Black Lagoon too so it will be nice to have a complete collection.

Have heard we may be getting Gremlins figures from these guys next year. Bring on Phoebe Cates!!

It's been a while now but I found one of the big displays of figures at B&N and picked up an Alien and Rocketeer.  I like them both and was happy to see them in person rather than ordering online.

My Target moved on from BttF to Firefly and they disappeared the other day and they have Horror figs like the Crow and Freddy Kruger.  It seems like Target is rotating them out which is cool. I'm hoping they maintain that end cap of collector figures, even the Funko Pop! Vinyl and Disney blind-boxed stuff is selling well.  Not so much the 6"-ish video game characters.

I also saw a bunch of figures at TRU last time I was in and looked through the other Alien figures along with Terminator and a few other lines.

+1  I get wanting to get the girl in there, but Wang would be a much better figure to include with Jack.  Bummer too, because I can't see where they would go with a second wave outside of him.  They did a great job on all the baddies.

I finally opened my Aliens, Terminator, and Predator figures.  I was second guessing these all along, but I like them a lot more opened up.  They hold their weapons well and are really a nice match to the old Kenner SW figures.  Still not getting a lot of them, but I'll likely snag anything new from Terminator/Aliens/Predator.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on April 20, 2015, 05:00 PM
Nice.

I'm fully hooked on these... I'm not buying every line, but anything that I loved as a kid and some things that I'm just into now, I'm game for.  I got the Karate Kid figures on Saturday, and they're pretty great.

These pictures are a few weeks old, but here's where I was at:

I second the kudos on the collection Rob. I'm a big fan of these figures as well, although I've only picked up the Alien figures. Been eyeing the BTILC figs, but haven't pulled the trigger. Did pre-order the rival line Flash Gordon figures, though.

If anyone is looking for extra Alien figures, there are a few guys on Ebay selling 5-packs for $20.  I just got mine on Friday and they quickly infested my Reaction display.

Post by: Jesse James on May 12, 2015, 09:11 PM
I think Jman meant just the Alien itself sold in groups from China, but yeah those ones seemed to be the ones that flourished on the Asian market.  I got most of mine there, actually, though the dude in the space suit never saw the backdoor sales from China like that, and he's who I'd have bought probably a dozen of if I had seen him cheap like that.  Love Kane in the space suit!  He looks good even in modern scenes unmodified.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on May 13, 2015, 12:04 PM
Right.  When I heard 5 pack I assumed he meant the 5 figures from the original 5 pack.

5 aliens for $18.99 shipped (they dropped it another dollar, just looked) is tempting.  It would be fun to have a few extras at that price.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: JediJman on May 13, 2015, 02:39 PM
Sorry if that was confusing.  It's the five alien figures for about $20 + Free shipping or you can buy them individual for $3 + $3 shipping.  At $4 each I couldn't resist getting a five pack to harass the crew.  I set them up with the G.I. Joe R.H.I.N.O (http://www.generalsjoes.com/images/reviews/2005/vehicles/rhino-6.jpg) to represent the M577 Armored Personnel Carrier from Aliens.  Just need some Colonial Marines now!

Wait a second... if the Dead Gus is SDCC, how do I already have one?

Also... that T-1000... I've already got one that's shot up, one that's frozen with a helmet, one that's all chromed out... then there's the regular one, and the regular one with the helmet... and now this.

6 T-1000's, already.  That's ridiculous.

Nothing in Funko's Announcement (http://funko.com/blogs/news/36568707-san-diego-comic-con-exclusives-wave-three) says anything about what makes this "dead gus" differnt (other then the SDCC sticker)

It may just be a case of Funko taking a previously released, hard to find, short-packed variant and re-releasing it as a Con-exclusive.  They have done that in the past...
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: P-Siddy on June 16, 2015, 04:45 PM
They did the opposite with the SDCC exclusive Tyrion figure.  He was released in the wild (Target) afterwards and they slapped on that it was a Funko convention exclusive.

Wish Hasbro would take note and release 6" Carbonite Han and Salacious Crumb that way.

I picked up what I assume is a TRU Exclusive Frozen T-1000 from the new T2 line today. That was the only new figure they had out. I was sort of wavering on this line too but it seems well done and manageable enough. I also really dig the individualized card backs.

What's the deal with the all chrome one, Rob?

Don't know if this is the proper place to post this but, the new 6 inch Firefly figures are hitting and I have a word of warning on those. I ended up returning all 4 that I bought because the right arm elbow joint snapped off on three of the four I opened. So be careful if you open and try to bend the right elbow joint. The peg that holds the forearm in is very weak.

Also saw the 5th Element figures for the first time, they look better than I expected. Think I might have to grab those at some point too.

Seriously, "Night of the Comet"?!?!

I thought that movie was asinine. I can think of a hell of a lot better ways to spend the impending apocalypse with two hot chicks than running around a shopping mall.

Human characters in regular clothes are painfully boring anyway.

I imagine the rights to stuff like Adventures in the Forbidden Zone, Buckaroo Banzai, Beastmaster, etc would be pretty damn cheap to pick up...any of those would be better choices IMHO.

I was excited for Big Trouble in Little China figures, but passed when I saw them in person.  I'm looking forward to the Aliens line and maybe the A-Team if they turn out well.  The rest are a pass (though I would be tempted to get the Star Trek Classic figures if I saw them all at once or in a set).
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jesse James on June 26, 2015, 02:03 PM
Aliens has me slightly interested but only because I'm starved for that stuff.  However, Hiya Toys is putting out figures that are basically Aliens, under the Aliens: Colonial Marines guise, and so far the Aliens themselves are everything you'd want in a SA line.

Not sure on the Marines, which are pushed to August for pre-orders.  The POwer Loader prototype is all kinds of amazing looking though.  :o

So to that end, I'd rather have an SA line and spend on that, but I do love all things Aliens and so I may still pick up the Funko guys.

Speak of the devil, they just released a new pic of Hicks...

Somehow that doesn't look anything like the character from the movie to me. I don't even mean the likeness, the gear and uniform just looks off somehow. Could be a misperception on my part though.

Walmart has been clearancing their ReAction Alien figs and I picked up a few more Big Chaps for $3 a piece yesterday. Got a nice little diorama going now...

Hiya's license is for Aliens: Colonial Marines (video game).  So while some of the characters are from the movie(s), they may have video game gear/looks and not movie gear.

I compared to my Hot Toys Hicks...  It's pretty decent.  For a small company I think it's pretty good.  Not a great likeness of the actor per se, but neither is Hasbros latest Han the best Ford likeness.

The colors are off and stuff but that can change.  The armor looks pretty on the mark to me even compared to the HT Hicks 12" fig.  It's a prototype too and miles superior to their last humans (WW2 Germans).  I didn't think they were doing any figs from the movies tho even if in the game as cameos.

Just got back from making the toy rounds and am pleased to report Barnes and Noble has begun clearancing the older ReAction figures for 50% off. It looked a bit random to me as far as what was included or not, but I was able to pick up a few more Universal monsters, a Pinhead and Jason, and some Predators at $5 each.

BTW, if you go out looking for these, they are not with the other ReAction figures, they were laying on a special Clearance table with a bunch of other stuff.

Happy hunting!

Cool, thanks Jeff. That makes sense. I was thinking it might be some kind of odd division between Super 7 and Funko properties.

I was nosing around eBay last night and only saw one (very overpriced) auction for the Haunted House playset. Hopefully more pop up, I definitely want that thing.

You will happy to hear I picked one up for the low, low price of $29.99 today at TRU.  :) They didn't have the regular shark, just the exclusive set. I was so psyched I went ahead and bought all 3 figures on the spot too.

They are very nicely done, probably the best ReAction figures I have bought so far in terms of likenesses. They have definitely improved their game over time.

Happy hunting!

I caved and bought one on eBay for $50 shipped.  It's half of what I expected to pay and only about $15 more than it would have cost me in stores.

So that's done and I have a Miyagi with the Headband and T-1000 with Hole in the Head on their way.

Now I need to find a reasonably priced way to pick up:

- Masters of the Universe Prototypes
- Universal Monsters Haunted Crypt 4-pack
- SDCC T-1000 with the hook arms
- Terminator 2 T-800 Variant
- Terminator 2 Sarah Connor Variant
- Japanese Exclusive Marty McFly with Einsten

This line is getting tougher and tougher to collect...

Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on July 21, 2015, 04:28 PM
I bought the Haunted Crypt for about $100 off eBay which was not too bad. I believe it was $70 at the con. I need most of those T2 variants too, except for the Hole in the Head T1000 which I found at TRU yesterday.

The real bear for me is that Haunted House Playset. Apprarently they only made about 10 of those because there are very, very few on eBay and they are all ridiculously priced compared to the other exclusives. I think I'm going to have to wait that one out and hope I get lucky down the line somewhere.

Some random info I read from Reis (Funko) at the Funko Funatics forum:

- There will be more figures between September and December - no pics yet.
- Previously announced properties are mostly on track - some pushed to 2016 (Bill and Ted is canceled).
- They have a long list and a short list for properties... things move around between them, but you've got to get through the short list to get produced.
- They are shuffling lots of things around right now based on what has and hasn't sold.
- Toy Fair for reveals... Comic Con isn't their scene for that.
- No plans for Army of Darkness.
- No Planet of the Apes License.
- Galaxy Quest was on the long list at one point.
- Firefly Series 2 is unlikely.
- Nightmare Before Christmas will have a second series.
- Universal Monsters and Horror will get more figures, probably one or two at a time.
- Leatherface is happening.  Blood Splattered Variant likely.
- No plans for Conan.
- X-Files is on hold for now.
- Focus returning to Pre-90's.
- More Alien figures coming, but he can't talk about details.
- Masters of the Universe is all Super 7, Funko isn't involved.  They are not ReAction figures.
- Die Hard was pitched, they decided to pass.
- No plans for The Burbs :(
- They are looking into doing Hannibal Lecter.
- Adams Family (TV show, not movie) is on the Long List.
- They are hoping to get James Bond rights eventually.
- No Buffy Series 2.
- They tried to get Mad Max, but no one has a Mad Max license.

Good updates, thanks for posting! Addams Family could have some potential. Not too crushed about Bill & Ted. I was hoping they would do more Universal monsters, curious who they would go with next.

I don't know if they were referring to the original or the sequel, but they have some unfinished work left to do on the Nostromo crew. I still remember the painted prototypes of Lambert and co from last year's con. Hook it up!

I finally saw the Breaking Bad figures at a local toy store this week, the only other ones still due out that have been announced were Fight Club I believe.

Yeah, the non-exclusive figures are actually cheaper to buy on Ebay, for whatever reason, you can usually find them in lots for less than $10 apiece. I've gotten a lot of them this way.

Interesting you mention the "Flocked" Wolfman. I have been hunting that one too, but have no idea WTF "flocked" means in relation to a toy. I see there are some Funko vinyl figures dubbed that as well. What does that mean? (I can't see any difference between this and the regular Wolfman)
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on August 10, 2015, 12:16 PM
Near as I can tell, the flocked thing is some other method of application for his fur.  Not sure if it's soft, or just a different texture... or something sprayed on, but it's not just regularly molded plastic.

Flocked is when they apply that fake fuzzy feel to a toy. 

It was a very popular "fake fur" type thing for toys.  GI Joe used ******* for fake buzz cuts on the 12" figure hair/beards (http://www.clubhairforgijoe.com/reflock.php).  80s Master of the Universe flocked a bunch of stuff too - Moss Man and Panthor are two I can think of off the top of my head.

These B&W's are 2000 pieces.  I wonder if they'll be less than the T-1000.

I know we previously agreed that these aren't really ReAction figures... but they're close enough!

Available Exclusively from Super7 at the New York Comic Con, October 8-11, Booth #174, $15 ea. (http://blog.super7store.com/2015/09/25/by-the-power-of-grayscale/)

Super7 and Mattel present the ĎBy the Power of Grayscaleí edition of Masters of the Universe 3.75″ Action Figures! Now He-Man can defend the secret power of Castle Grayskull from Skeletor and his evil henchmen in black and white! Each sturdy, plastic action figure is 3.75″ tall with five points of articulation, and comes packaged on a classic-styled blister card with accessory, just like the toys from the golden age of action figures!

Ordered the Alien set this morning... can't justify $60 for a set of four B&W's though.  The B&W Universal Monsters have been going for $30+ on eBay.   The price on these for what you get isn't very good at all.  I'm starting to rethink collecting these at $10+ a piece. 

Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on October 12, 2015, 10:25 AM
Thanks Jeff! I just ordered the Haunted Crypt and Alien set. I couldn't find any of the single carded B&W Universal Monsters though. Did those not go up yet?
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jeff on October 12, 2015, 10:32 AM
The price on these for what you get isn't very good at all.  I'm starting to rethink collecting these at $10+ a piece.

95% of the ReAction stuff I've got has come from EE Daily Deals (20-30% off) or the Buy 3, Get 1 FREE Funko deals (like they have right now (http://www.entertainmentearth.com/1funko1015.asp?id=JE-405087801) ;)).  Granted, I'm only casually buying figures here or there and not chasing too many variants so far, but they are much nicer when you're only paying $7-8 each.

 
The B&W Universal Monsters have been going for $30+ on eBay.  Although now I can't find them on eBay and the Super 7 link doesn't have any - did they get released at the convention?

I couldn't find any of the single carded B&W Universal Monsters though. Did those not go up yet?

Those were sold at Funko's booth, not Super7's booth so I doubt they hit the Super7 store.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on October 12, 2015, 11:55 AM
For sure Jeff.  I've been buying most of mine on eBay where you can get them in the $9-each shipped range, which isn't horrible. 

It's really the exclusives and chase variants that are driving me crazy.  There's a LOT of them.  Sometimes I find out about them too late, and even on a good day it's $15 to get one - ones you miss can quickly become $35 items on eBay.

Good to know about the Super 7 / Funko distinction there... Maybe there's still a chance that some will become available without having to hit the secondary market.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on October 12, 2015, 01:01 PM
Yeah, that's actually good to hear, Funko exclusives have frequently shown up at Barnes and Noble after the fact, I know some of the Flash and Arrow figs did, and their GoT stuff. I will definitely keep an eye out for those now.

Yeah the Toys R Us near me seems to get them in pretty regularly too.  I guess it's time to keep an eye out. 

If you happen to find extras of any of the B&W Universal monsters could you snag them and send them this way?  I'd be happy to keep an eye out for you too.

Also had the Haunted House Playset/Display (http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=SUPS7RE004&id=JE-405087801) for $75 - not available now, but they are expecting more it sounds like...

Hey Rob, I was just able to order the nycc B&W creature figure from Toys R Us' eBay store. Only came to $15 shipped, not bad at all. I could not find listings for the other two yet but hopefully they will show up too. I'll post again if I can find those. Good luck!  :)
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on December 1, 2015, 08:57 AM
Got my B&W Creature yesterday in the usual TRU bubble mailer, but it was thankfully intact.

Also picked up both of the "Final Battle" T1000 EE variants for less than $10 apiece off eBay - nice. I still need like six more of those T2 figures, too many variants, ugh.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on December 1, 2015, 01:39 PM
Thanks for the tip.  I actually decided that I'm done worrying about the variations with this line - there's just too many and I have a real hard time with the idea of one of these simple sculpts with almost no articulation costing more than $10 ($7 would be more in line with what you're getting).

Basically I'm looking for ways to collect a little bit less, and this is one of the ones I'm going with for now. 
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on December 4, 2015, 09:11 AM
I hear you on the variants Rob. The T2 ones were really over the top. I'm still trying to get the last couple I need. I do sort of enjoy the chase though, and in general I'm a huge fan of the ReAction stuff, most properties anyway.

I finally broke down and picked up the full assortment of Fifth Element figures this week through various eBay auctions, averaged just under $5 a piece so not too bad at all. I see the Rocky Horror figures are now in stock at EE, so those are probably next.

Glad they are taking a long break in 2016 though, that was a major glut of product for earlier this year.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on December 4, 2015, 10:48 AM
Yep.  Those T-1000 things were insane... 8 of them is beyond absurd.  Until I decided to stop worrying about this so much, I had collected 7 of them.  I just need the Patrolman chase version that's not frozen.  I paid like $35 for the hook-arms one, which is way way too much for one of these figures.  I also would still like to pick up the battle damaged T-800, but again, $30+ isn't happening anymore.  I'm starting to think that for regular releases I'm just going to start waiting a few months, like you're saying with the Fifth Element stuff, you can readily find these for less than $7 if you just hold out a little while and with over 100 of these already, I just feel like it's not good value for the money I've spent.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on December 6, 2015, 12:00 PM
Yeah, I think you're definitely right about waiting these things out, Rob. Outside of the T2 line I don't think any of their lines have really gone up much if at all in value since their release. You can get complete runs of most of them for well below the $10 MSRP on eBay.

I'm happy with what I have to this point, I would probably be more selective if they were continuing to crank out product, but the lull now makes me feel like it won't be hard to keep up going forward.

Oh, and I finally picked up that Flocked Wolfman for $20 shipped from a BIN auction this weekend, so I am happy about that.  :)
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on December 22, 2015, 03:37 PM
I walked into TRU today and found a single B&W Frankenstein hanging on the pegs and after poking around I also found a single B&W Wolfman as well. Those were the only two they had, which was perfect because those were the only two I needed. These worked out a lot better for me than I initially expected.  :)

Also bought Leatherface for $10 off eBay.





Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on December 30, 2015, 10:31 PM
Just when I'd moved on and decided not to worry about these, I wandered into a TRU last night and found all three of them.  They had a few of each.  I'm perfectly happy picking up exclusives at normal retail prices.

Awesome Rob, glad you found these!

I finally caved and picked up the Rocky Horror figures off eBay for $9 apiece shipped. The only one not available was Frank, so I went onto Gamestop's website and found one at a local store they are now holding for me.  ;D

Curious now if/when we will get a whiff of any new product from these guys in 2016.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on December 31, 2015, 03:42 PM
They had the Rocky Horror figures the other day too, but I passed.  I was never that into that one.  Other than the T-1000 Patrolman and the Silver Painted Frozen T-1000, I'm all caught up at the moment too, but there are plenty of exclusives I'd pick up if I ever found a decent deal.

All the Crypt Universal Monster figures...
The He-Man Prototyles
The He-Man Black and Whites
The Battle Damaged T-800

I'm also thinking I might pick up the Flash Gordon figures at some point soon.

Well, I guess there was a little more on tap at least. Streetfighter does nothing for me at all though, and I'm way iffy on Hellboy. The MOTU stuff I might buy if I saw it in a store but I don't think that one is a Funko deal so probably not.

Oh, and the Alien carrying case or whatever was kind of cool. I will definitely nab that.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on February 15, 2016, 12:52 PM
The MOTU in color is something I've been waiting for since they showed the prototype versions.

I finally scored the Patrolman T-1000 yesterday.  There was a novelty store near my house that also sold toys and I hadn't been in there in years.  It somehow became all collectible toys and they had one mixed in with all the regulars- it was $8.  So patience paid off there...
Title: Re: ReAction Lines

Nice Rob!

I've gotten all of them now except for the Toy Tokyo Battle Damaged T800. just waiting for a reasonably priced one to pop up on eBay and then I'm done.

Also, not ReAction, but I was super psyched to get my Herbert West, Re-Animator 3&3/4" figure from Amok Time this week. (Think the company that makes it is called Monstarz) Awesome piece of work!

Hmm, now that you mention it, I guess that wasn't actually one of the items teased. Also MIA is the rumored Nostromo kitbash play-set.

Agreed, and I think it is a result of them going back to doing their own thing without the support of Funko. So we wind up with $15 MOTU figures you can only buy online, and $45 vinyl carrying cases. I'm kinda glad now there is not much else on the horizon with these guys.

Sure, I get it - but they've really gone overboard with the exclusives with this line.  It's only what, 2 years old and almost every movie or show they've done figures from had variants. 

I have 9 different T-1000's...7 or 8 Predators... black and white figures, glow in the dark figures, flocked figures, blood splatter versions, blue plastic monsters, green plastic monsters, with or without a hat or headband, battle damaged figures, superman on Sloth's shirt.. 8-Bit video game Freddy and Jason, Marty McFly with Einstein, Beam-Me-Up versions of Star Trek, He-man in prototype, B&W and color, Gustavo with his face melted off, orange Nightmare Before Christmas figures, "Starry" Alien figures, Clear Alien figures, Prototype Alien Figures, Blue Lo-Pan, FOUR different heads for Jack Skellington, there are even two sharks!

And that's just off the top of my head, and only from sub-lines I actually collect personally.  There are way way too many exclusives.  It's to the point where I don't bother anymore unless they fall into my lap for a reasonable price.

Well, kinda like with repaints of Stormtroopers and things...  Sometimes that's how reinvestment helps a line keep going.

On a more personal level for me (Reaction stuff was never high on my list besides the Alien figures), Acid Rain's one thing comes in 2 decos, another is out in multiple variations at this point and costs anywhere from $99-$120 more or less...  So far I own it all, and plan to own more of it.  THAT is expensive, lol.  Not much I'm saying no to there, and some of it is a pure deco change too. 

I think for the ReAction line they were trying really hard to max out investment...  Tough to blame them, as how many could they possibly be selling?  It's not like Hasbro after all.

I like these niche toy lines, personally.  People (and I'm not pointing fingers at you Rob, this is a general thing) like to say put your $ where your mouth is on wanting this or that...  And I agree.  If you like it, support it, and you may get more of it...   That's why I'm all-in supporting Hiya's Aliens line...  I wanted SA Aliens in this scale for eons, and getting them for a "fair" (by my standards) price.  And they're hinting at going further with it (APC), and moving into other properties (Original Predator).  Likewise, Acid Rain...  $150 for something I REALLY like isn't that hard to stomach I guess. 

Like I say, sometimes I think the repaints and such, they help move other things along.  Sometimes they're just a cash grab too.  But for a small company, I dunno how much it was greed and how much it was them trying to make it "highly collectible" while still milking a mold so they could do the next thing they wanted to try.

I got an email from Super7 last night saying that their Alien Vinyl Carrying Cases were heading over on the proverbial slow boat from China and would not be here until June.  >:(

I understand the challenge of logistics with a small company like this but its pretty ****** of them not to have stated that up front last week when they went up for order. There's no way they could not have known that.  They could have easily labeled it as a Pre-Order, or at the very least as a gesture of good faith not charged me or refunded my money until the damn things show up.

No idea now if I'm going to get my 3-pack or if they will hold it and ship them together.

Post by: Rob on May 5, 2016, 10:24 AM
Yeah, I get the small company thing, I get maximizing profits... but I don't think you don't max profits by only making 500 of a given figure and then letting the secondary market jack the prices up.  I suppose that's designed to whip compulsive collectors into a frenzy, and it works.

Also, I know Funko's smaller than Hasbro (who isn't?) but I don't know how long the small company argument is going to fly with them.  I don't have anything to back this up, but based on the number of different characters they produce and how often I see them, I'm willing to bet they sell a TON of those Pop Vinyl figures too.  They have a lot of licenses and produce a lot of product, again I'm not basing this on anything, but I feel like they have graduated, or will soon be graduating to mid-sized toy company status.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jesse James on May 5, 2016, 11:08 AM
I agree McMetal, they shouldn't be charging for product that isn't available.  That's meh.

Regarding them as a company, they're selling basic stuff for relatively cheap (these days).  And they're selling limited exclusives for more $ which kinda makes sense...  I think they're not Jakks, or Playmates size, which I'd label mid-size, so to me they're still a smaller company.  But they're bigger than Hiya or Ori Toys, I believe.  They also are selling figures for half what those companies are selling theirs though too, and cranked out a LOT of all new sculpts with fairly minimal re-use of anything outside of the exclusives.  Then again Ori and Hiya are imports which adds to their costs, comparatively speaking.

In my mind they're just doing what they can to compete in the "toys for adults" world, which relies on rarity/collectability and the balance of that with a price their base can live with.  Same issues Hasbro has, just they are focused more on kids and keeping prices lower.

The ReAction stuff is rooted in collecting it all I think, and the more popular ones seemed to be where they dug in with exclusives, like Alien or Predator or Jaws...  I guess to me this just makes sense for them, if they're keeping this line fairly limited overall.  It's like they're trying to make these mythical toy lines of old, like vintage Star Wars, and include the Amanaman and Vlix element by having some "rare" stuff.  It's an element of "vintage collecting" I feel they're aiming for, while maximizing tooling and still trying not to piss too many folks off by making it deco variations rather than something totally new (for the most part anyway).  But even something like that Alien playset, they'd only do in resin unless they hit a high order number to justify cost of tooling, which I don't believe they did hot that mark iirc.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: JediJman on May 5, 2016, 11:46 AM
That is crummy if you're not used to it.  I collect Transformers Masterpiece figures, most of which come from smaller third party outfits.  It's actually the standard in that world for them to throw out a date, then miss it by several months due to factory delays, shipping problems, design changes, etc.  If they say April, you can almost certainly plan for August. 

With some sites you have to pay up front, others you don't pay until it ships.  I get the complaints with pre-paying, but it's a minor issue for me as I'm spending it either way.  May as well lock it in now and now worry that I won't have it when the product is finally available.  I've actually gotten to the point where I have so much stuff back ordered or pre ordered that I'm getting a regular stream of new stuff coming in to offset stuff that won't be available for weeks or months down the road.

These have finally hit an attractive clearance price at Target. I picked up some extra 5th Element figures yesterday for $2.98 a pop. Not quite as good as the $2 blowout at Barnes and Noble, but close.  ;D

Also grabbed a Terminator and Gracie Law this morning. Not sure what I will ultimately end up doing with these guys but I find that price hard to pass up for the value.

Really wish I could find some Gremlins because that's the one ReAction line I never picked up despite some interest.

03:  Do any of you happen to have an extra of the glow-in-the-dark Xenomorph from the carrying case set you'd like to sell?

So far yeah, that is the only ReAction exclusive they have revealed. I keep thinking there will be something else, but not so far. Not sure about availability outside of the con but almost all their exclusives have gone up in the Super7 Webstore at some point.

And yeah, the Japanese 3-pack is essentially the same version of the previous 3-pack, but I think they lightened up the paint deco this time around. Not quite as day glo neony.

Rob, you'll be relieved to hear the 3-pack figures appear to be exactly the same as the previous version. I compared them side by side in a bright light last night and could not tell any difference. Packaging is cool though.

The carrying case was a super nice effort, better than expected. It's big! Two stackable drawers covered in a vinyl slipcase, very retro. Fits 24 figures total I believe. I got all my loose guys in there last night and they fit great.

And man, the Glow in the Dark Alien is freaking hellishly cool. They even added some darker inked highlights to really bring out the details. I wish I had more of these guys!

Got mine today and couldn't agree more with all of this.  The GITD Alien looks awesome when I turn off the lights to the room.  The case is like double the thickness of the old Kenner vinyl SW cases.  Looks really durable and well made.  The cover art on the front is a little lame IMO - I would have preferred more realistic art or even a movie photo.  I don't have the original 3-pack, but these guys will look cool with a space suit Ripley.

Darby - ICYMI this summer, AFI had a really nice interview (http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/afinterview-funko-s-reaction-the-dark-crystal-action-figure-line/) with the Funko team on these.  Great insight into how they used (and improved) designs from the original Kenner line that was cancelled before it even began.

Article also talks about how ReAction will now be taking a balanced approach between modern and retro - "we had to do some experimenting to find that sweet spot, not too accurately retro, not too hyper-realistic."

Last part stil give me hope that we'll get a The Last Starfighter line eventually... (http://jedidefender.com/jsmentek/crossfingers.gif)

Lastly, that Golden Girls set is supposedly a shared exclusive with Target, but Target's website is sold out at the moment and they're selling for like $125 on eBay.  I hope that's just people being impatient and they're going to show up in bigger numbers?

I am astounded at the going prices on those GG sets. I saw some going for over $200 when I checked the other night on eBay. WTF?

ReAction Figures Return To Super7 (http://www.super7hq.com/news/reaction-figures-return-to-super-7)

No more Funko involvement in ReAction it sounds like.  Maybe that means the Funko Suicide Squad and GOT 3.75" figures are doing well enough for them to go that more modern/simple figure route and let Super7 have the "nostalgia" type stuff?


Also, part of the announcement was the new Super7 Retro action figure line for Street Fighter 2 (http://super7store.com/search?q=street+fighter+action).


edit: Here is the Funko PR post (https://funko.com/blogs/news/reaction-figures-return-to-super7), indicating that the E.T. stuff is the last Funko produced ReAction stuff and confirming that Funko's 3.75" stuff will have a new line name in 2017.

Post by: Rob on November 10, 2016, 06:17 PM
Oh boy... that's concerning.  Super 7 charges a full $5 more for a figure than Funko does, and they don't distribute to retail.  Also quite frankly they don't make as good a product.

If everything now becomes Super 7 style like He-Man and Street Fighter, and the prices are $15 each, and the distribution isn't at retail, I'm out.  If they can continue to do what Funko's been doing, then okay.

Yeah, the main reason they partnered with Funko was to be able to hit the $10 price point.  I'd guess higher $15 prices and smaller edition sizes will be the norm for ReAction now.

Post by: Rob on November 10, 2016, 10:48 PM
Quite frankly even at $10 the value was lacking... I know this is more of a niche line from a smaller company, but if they continue at $15 each I don't think the line will last much longer.  I just don't see how I can justify $65 shipped for a wave of four little figures with almost no articulation...
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on November 11, 2016, 09:40 AM
Funny how in that press release they both spin it as a big positive. But it seems pretty clear this experiment was a failure. I'm sure it was Funko who decided to bail. They had all the Hand in that relationship anyway.

I've been all about this line from Day One, but I have to say Super 7 does not have much to offer of any value outside of the ReAction stuff. Those vinyl figures and glassware and stuff are just greasy kid stuff. I have felt for awhile now like they are throwing all their weight behind this MOTU thing to pretty much the exclusion of everything else. Street Fighter and that bizarre "The Worst" property hold no interest for me at all.

I will say though, that the recent Dark Crystal figures are about the best thing they have put out ever. Those are really amazing, and well worth the $15 (to me) because of the thought and energy that went into them, plus the inherent coolness of the property. If they would focus more attention on that kind of stuff I think they will have a solid niche to build on going forward.

Saw on Instagram that there is a brand new Super7 exclusive liquid T-1000 with hole in head available now at their Webstore.  :D

Because the 8 previous versions were not enough!

I'm actually kind of glad to get at least one more figure from their previous lines, figuring they will probably focus on new properties going forward. Even if it is a halfassed repaint.

Well, it seems pretty ominous to me that they abruptly ripped all the Dark Crystal stuff off of their webstore a couple of days ago. They are not just out of stock either, I had the pages bookmarked and they are throwing out 404 errors now.   ???

I wish I had bought them at the time now but their shipping charges are ridiculous and I was trying to find a cheaper alternative.

Bummer!

I managed to get a few of them but still need Ursol and Kira... and the regular Jen if she's different than the Landstrider one.

Then there's the lingering question of Garthim.  I registered at Funkofunatic to try and ask, but I'm waiting for the account to be approved.

Probably already common knowledge, but my local TRU recently moved these figures from the toy area to video games.  All the various movie-related lines are in this new section, that I'd never have even walked by if I wasn't specifically looking for it.  Might be worth checking out.  I saw some GOT figures there, but didn't look closely at the rest of the FUNKO stuff.

I finally broke down and ordered Aughra off eBay for $9.99 shipped. Couldn't find any of the rest at that price so have been trying to be patient.

This morning I found the other four basic figs (they had no listing for Aughra so I lucked out getting that one separately) at Barnes and Noble's website and they were all on sale for $5.96 each!

I grabbed all 4 and some Hot Wheels car to qualify for Free Shipping. The whole order came to $27.16. That's incredible for a bunch of figures I really wanted and am unlikely to ever see in a store. Less than $7 a pop!

Happy. Now to start saving up for the NYCC set...

Crap, I should have posted about the B&N thing... I saw it the other day.  I ordered the Dark Crystal figures I was missing, and 8 of the Game of Thrones figures for $7.50 each... free shipping, solid deal.

Also I'm disappointed about the Garthim set, but no wings is better than no Garthim.

Got my Dark Crystal figures today...all 3 carded figures' bubbles had come clean off and they were just bouncing around loose in the package.  :(

Not surprised really, I had heard this was a big issue with these figures, but disappointed nonetheless.

At least Ursol's box was in good shape.

Oh man, I just heard about these too! Pretty sure I will be going all in on this line, although I expect it will be short. I loved their ReAnimator figure from last year. It's one of my favorites.

I guess the ET ReAction stuff is available now too, on another note.

There was a rumor circulating that ReAction was dead as of 2017, but Super7 recently confirmed that the line/brand is not dead.  The Hellboy stuff is still coming (hitting soon) and the Mega Man stuff is still coming.

There should be some unrevealed stuff to be shown at Toy Fair in Feb as well.

Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on February 23, 2017, 12:52 AM
Indeed...  I'm having a really hard time with their pricing and distribution.  I'm finding that $60 plus shipping for a wave of four, 5-POA action figures is incredibly difficult to justify.  If they could get these down a little bit and distribute them more so there are options as far as where to buy them so you could maybe find a better deal, I'd be much more wiling to stick with the line.  So far I skipped Street Fighter even though I'd love to buy the, but again nearly $100 shipped for 6 minimally articulated figures seems insane.   Want to do Hellboy but have been holding off...
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jesse James on February 23, 2017, 02:41 AM
To put it into perspective, Acid Rain figures are $30...  hyper articulated (but re-use many parts), come in a box that's part of the "toy", usually have removable gear and such...  Amazing paint apps.

Hiya Aliens figures are 4" scaled too, hyper articulated, tons of gear, Aliens even come with eggs and facehuggers, but they're in the $25 range...

$10 for 5POA is probably about right comparatively speaking to what it costs a small company to crank out.  Hasbro can do them for less...  These companies can't though.

Personally I never could get into these...  Retro's ok but they felt like a mess after a while.  The Alien stuff was more appealing for some reason but this just got too weird for me.  *shrugs*
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on February 23, 2017, 10:26 AM
Well, that was the whole appeal of the Funko partnership...got them down to $10 apiece with better distribution. Once that fell apart they had to revert back to their small business model. I can't fault them for being a small company.

Amok Time, as a point of comparison, sort of exists in that same space but are even smaller. Their figures are $20 each and the ONLY places you can get are from their website or eBay. You'd have to really want those Creepshow figures to justify the expense.

To me, I like most of what super 7 does and generally feel good about supporting them, so it doesn't bug me too much. I do agree their shipping fees are pretty outrageous though, and they don't even offer free shipping for any orders no matter how large. That sucks.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on February 23, 2017, 11:04 AM

Probably because those were Kenner sculpts. :)

I get that it's expensive to be a small company and do low volume, and that it's my choice... It's just tough to convince myself that I should pay about $100 for 6 Street Fighter figures when $100 gets you a ton more almost anywhere else.  It is what it is, I just like to bitch about it from time to time. 

I'll end up ordering the Hellboy figures, I'll keep up with MOTU... I did pay $20 for that Creepshow figure, because it's awesome... I just have to be more selective at this kind of price.  At least with Funko you could get a good deal if you looked around, with Super 7 it seems to be $15 each regardless of what you get, where you get it, and how long you wait.

Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jesse James on February 23, 2017, 03:43 PM
Just wanted to give some comparison was all.  I don't blame you...  the price imho is obscene for what it is.  I prefer modern stuff tho not vintage looking, which I equate to "low quality".  I like my vintage Star Wars figures but prefer my modern ones.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on February 23, 2017, 04:48 PM
Yeah, I think it ultimately just comes down to what it's worth to you for a given toy. I'm happy to pay a little more to complete the crew of the Nostromo, but on the other end, I've still never been able to bring myself to pay at or even near MSRP for those damn Gremlins figures which mildly interest me but seem like such a crappy value for the price and how tiny they are.

The Lord of Light Jack King Kirby figure they had on display was all kinds of awesome too. That's the kind of thing I will pony up for all day.

On vacation at Universal Studios Orlando this week and noticed they had ReAction Jaws figures for sale in one of the gift shops. They even had Bruce the Shark.

Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on March 12, 2017, 03:32 PM
I finally bit the bullet and bought the ReAction Dark Crystal NYCC exclusive Garthim/Winged Kira 2-pack. The aftermarket prices on these things are nuts, but with only 500 hundred made and auctions starting to dwindle I figured it was probably now or never. I actually found one for a relatively non-outrageous price, at least compared to some of the eBay sold listings I reviewed. I think the single packed Garthim TRU exclusive popping up in stores recently maybe helped me in this case.

i also was lucky enough to purchase a few of those single packed Garthims this morning at TRU and man is that a nice toy. Really, really well done.

It's a shame about the spotty distribution of this line and the whole problem with the bubbles falling off their cards. Because these are about the best things Super 7/Funko ever produced during their partnership, IMHO.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on March 13, 2017, 03:52 PM
I'm happy that you're happy, but I've drawn the line with the Winged Kira and the Golden Girls 4-pack.

I've paid $35 for exclusives that I can't find (glow in the dark Oogie Boogie, I'm looking at you), but I just can't justify $100 or $200 for anything ReAction.  I'll live without the Kira or Golden Girls... the value just isn't there to me, and I don't have some kind of complete collection of these anyway, I skipped several of the various lines that didn't do anything for me.

Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Jedi Idej on March 22, 2017, 11:10 PM
I just picked up my TRU Garthim. Seeing this on the shelf gives me hope the singles will make their way back into distribution. I pre-ordered a set from an outfit in L.A. in September and it appears they haven't received any yet but updated a couple of times on new ship dates.

And who knows? Maybe the Winged Kira will also make it out as a single.

I give Funko props for their variety of licenses, but I'll admit to frustration. River wasn't in the Firefly line. We got several scrubs in GOT. I understand they want to pace key characters to drive subsequent waves, but their track record has been one-and-done. And speaking of GOT... production figures paled -- in some cases were disappointing -- compared to pics of their advertised samples. And, yes, I can't believe the Golden Girls were limited to the Con.

Watch them do that again and make The Gas Phantom into BOBA FETT. Batula as Lando. Black Falcon as ....Snowtrooper? Robot Reaper = Yoda?

Maybe I'm the last one to know about this, but it was news to me...I was at Days of the Dead today in Chicago and a vendor had a Puppet Master Blade figure... I had no idea, but I snagged it for $10 thinking it would fit nicely with the ReAction figures, it doesn't seem to have any articulation, but it looks great with the rest IMO. The back of the card also teases an upcoming Torch figure:

I'm not sure I've ever seen those either, although they do seem vaguely familiar. Cool stuff. I keep hoping Monstarz will do more Creepshow figs.

Super 7 sent me an email teasing Halloween in December, so it looks like their next round of horror figs is about ready. Can't wait to see King Diamond!

20% off all online orders from Super 7 today, so I caved and bought the two Misfits figures. Wish they would run a good sale on those 18" Alien figures.

It's a pretty safe bet that they'll be $15 each, pretty much everything they do is.

I'm definitely picking up all six of these new figures.

According to their Instagram feed, Count Orlock goes up for sale at noon PST today. Card art by Ed Repka is amazing!  :)

I am definitely getting this one, not so sure about a fat guy in a suit. (No offense, Santa!)

Maiden is just so tempting, especially with the great card art on those as well.

Was hoping we would have some more news on the Wave 3 Alien figures by now, or the Shogun Warriors, but I guess those got pushed out to next year.

Also been curious to see what their "ReAnimated" line is going to be all about...haven't heard a peep about that since SDCC.

Just got an email saying that Nosferatu is sold out... I had no idea he was a limited thing or I'd have gotten one quicker.  I have a pre-order at BBTS, but they haven't even gotten theirs in yet, so now I'm wondering if they even will?

Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on December 21, 2017, 09:00 PM
I got that too and am really sore about it.  >:(

1. They should have told people it was going to be limited in the first place
2. They should have warned people when it was close to selling out.
3. There's no reason they couldn't make more of these if they wanted to.

For a company that I want to like and support, they pull some pretty dickish moves that are hard to comprehend.

Pretty telling they announced this over email and not with their typical preferred method of communication Instagram. The comments would have buried them.

Is it really 'sold out' or are they no longer taking orders via their online shop?  Seems strange BBTS and EE (https://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=SUP34656&id=JE-405087801) would still be taking pre-orders if it was truly sold out. ???
Title: Re: ReAction Lines

The email said:

Quote
A public service announcement from Super7: The Nosferatu 3.75" ReAction Figure has left the building.. The Original Edition of doomed Count Orlok is now sold out. Thank you!

Perhaps Nosferatu will reemerge in a different variant in the future that is not far away...

So true to Super 7 form, it sounds like variants are on the way, but unlike them, they seem to have a non-exclusive that they made a smaller run of.

Hopefully those online shops still get theirs, or he's going to get pricey fast.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on January 16, 2018, 09:04 AM
"Sepia tint" Nosferatu figure coming out Wednesday.  ::)

They also have two new Lord of Light figures due out that day, which I am super excited about, so I guess I will just order all 3.

I finally caved and bought the original Nosferatu along with Hitchcock on eBay. I paid about $8 more than I would have ordering from Super 7 direct, but I can live with that since these seem pretty scarce right now.

Yeah, I was on the verge because of the Nosferatu thing, but there's enough stuff on the horizon to keep me around a little longer. (Alien Wave 3, Shogun Warriors, etc)

I wonder if they will show off anything new at TF next month.

They announced on Instagram the new Alien figures will be out for Alien Day this year. (4/26) I heard a nasty rumor these are all going to be in 3-packs, but I hope they do single carded versions too. Kinda sucks to have the first two waves that way and not the third.

I have no idea what this "Great Garloo" thing is they keep talking about.

I googled it and apparently it was some kind of mechanical monster toy from the 50's. I guess they are doing 3.75" versions...Garloo and Son of Garloo. I saw the cards at Toyfair but not sure I ever saw any actual product. Seems like a weird, random choice but then so is Breakin'.

It was Funko who showed it at I think SDCC in 2016. They were part of a larger display of the Reaction line. It's the only time I saw them, so I figure it was never released

Seriously.  I have a pre-order in for Nosferatu with EE, and I'm assuming they'll get them and fulfill that pre-order, but it's odd.

Although honestly, the sepia version is the proper version to me...

Super 7 also announced B&W versions of Nosferatu and Hitchcock for their Wonder Con exclusives. So now I have to figure out how to pick those up. I asked on Instagram if there would be any available online after the show but did not get a response.

I went ahead and ordered a case to get the Super Nova one... against my better judgement.

So, my buddy's taking a set of the other 3, I'll have some extras if anyone is looking.  I'll have:

1 set of three not including the chase variant
1 more "space dust" variant
1 more "blood moon" variant

eBay is having 15% off today with the code PRIMOSALE.

I just used it to get a set of all six Planet of the Apes figures shipped for $79... probably about as good as I'd ever be able to do on those.

Also, I want to go on record saying that Super 7 has lost their damn minds on the exclusives this year.  It's way too much.

Comic Con Exclusive White Misfits Fiend:

Iím mostly just hoping that they have enough that they can put some on their website after the show. I canít pay aftermarket prices for this many exclusives in one year... I swear it would be like $300 for a kit bash, a recast, a couple of repaints, a carrying case I donít want, and a generic plastic base with a cardboard back.  Itís times like this where Iím super unimpressed with how Super 7 as a company.

Ah, okay.  I hadn't heard about them being exclusive so I was surprised when they showed up on that page.  I bought a set.  Maybe I'll leave them on the card and if they come out on a regular card I'll sell these and buy a set to open from the regular packaging.

So I've managed to order everything except the She-ra / Hordak 2-pack.  The lowest on eBay is $75 or $80.

Do we have any insight about whether or not that's ever going to be available again, or if $75 is as good as it'll ever get?  I know it's a guessing game, but I want to know if I Have all the info before I guess.

$40 each for those two seems absurd.

And as soon as I did, Super 7 came up with two more exclusives for us to track down, and yay, they're international:

I contacted them this morning and they said they had notified the warehouse to ship me out another. Fingers crossed. Hopefully at worst I end up with an extra Creature figure.

Those are some big ass cards too, BTW, wow. They display nicely though, very vivid colors. And the GID Misfits Fiend is VERY GID. Usually those things don't impress me but that guy glows like a mofo.

Wow, I never heard of that one either Rob, and they are not shy about pimping their MOTU exclusives. He looks really cool too.

Yeah, he was apparently online for 20 euros for just a little bit but is gone.  There are a few on eBay, one sold for $100.  The other ones are BIN $100 and then at auction and are probably going to finish around there.

I really want one of these guys... but $100?  I think I'm out at that price.

Ouch. Sorry Rob, that sucks.

Your post reminded me to go out and order King Diamond and the new Misfit Fiend Earth AD figures. Psyched to get those.

Still waiting on my replacement Mummy...
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on August 2, 2018, 12:45 PM
It's all good, I just posted in case you were still looking.

I'm passing on King Diamond, but I'm a little bummed about the individual Misfits release.  I was hoping they'd put out the other four as a single wave to keep shipping together, but now I'm afraid to wait on ordering just the one given how fast they sold out of the regular black version back at the beginning.

I suppose I'll just order this one.

If you happen to see anything about those Mexican Convention Exclusive MOTU figures for this weekend, please share!

Also, I went back to their Instagram feed and read through all the posts and comments about the Universal Monsters on those big colorful card backs.  I can't find a word about them being available later, although they did show some traditional card art when they were unveiled in February.  But no mention in the posts or the comments about them being anything other than exclusive to SDCC.  Where'd you get the impression that they'd be available later from?
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on August 2, 2018, 01:54 PM
Hmmm....I don't recall offhand, I'll have to dig around and see where I got that from, I want to say Toyark or one of those type places right around the time when they first announced the SDCC exclusives. I remember wondering at the time why they didn't put Frankenstein or the Mole People on the die-cut cards too. I guess those are coming on regular cards later though.

RE: the Mexican figs...are you familiar with that SSSS# thing? Some kind of subscription service/VIP club or something where you get access to all their various exclusives? They only offer up membership on rare occasions, and I missed it last time around, but that seems like a possibly good source for stuff like that. I'll be sure to post here when it pops up again, I feel like they teased it just recently.

Title: Re: ReAction Lines

Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Brian on August 7, 2018, 03:16 PM
As I've been trying to buy less modern stuff and generally just reduce the collection overall, it has allowed me to refocus on some vintage collecting. I recently (finally) completed my vinty Star Wars figure collection (the first 77 anyways), and have been working on other bits and pieces and looking at GI Joe as well. Anyways, long story short, it has reaffirmed my enjoyment of this "style". I had picked up a few of these earlier on, like the Goonies and the first He-Man, but recently I've really started to look into picking up some of the earlier ones I wanted that I either put off or just missed - specifically Karate Kid and Back to the Future.  Also thinking about He-Man, probably skipping the exclusives. I've really enjoyed reading the conversations here on the various lines. Other than exclusives, is there a big price jump on older figures?
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on August 7, 2018, 03:25 PM
Other than exclusives, is there a big price jump on older figures?

I don't think so.  I know lots of the Funko Reaction stuff can be had pretty inexpensively - they were produced in bigger numbers and the quality is less.  I don't see a lot of discounts on the Super 7 stuff though.  It seems like unless you can find a lot of open ones, they seem to stick in the $12 to $15 range depending on what it is, with some going higher.  They love exclusives and they don't mind making limited runs of things.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on August 8, 2018, 08:57 AM
Yeah, it depends on the property really. Most of the Aliens and Predator figures can be found very cheap on eBay, but some other ones like Jaws really seemed to skyrocket over time. I keep meaning to go back and buy all the Gremlins figures, but I can never seem to find a good deal on them.

Apparently King Diamond was a limited run (initially) so I have no idea if I'm actually getting one or not. It was In Stock when I ordered, so I assume so, but who knows. Taking a long time for my order to ship...
Title: Re: ReAction Lines

eBay has another 15% off code today... it's PRONTO15

So is this a "real" character or something they made up just to have an exclusive repaint and get the money for little work? Because that mark-up is insane, and you know they are going to try to capitalize on that collector insanity themselves!

I have never heard of Anti He-Man before two weeks ago...I really really wanted to like and collect these Super7 He-Man figures but they missed the mark for me...now I am starting to count myself lucky if this is going to be the standard for the line.

Honestly I'd never heard of The Great Garloo until yesterday when they showed that.  Googling it, it seems to just be an old toy?  It's not from any movies or shows or books or anything is it?
Title: Re: ReAction Lines

Nope it's just based on an old toy, which predates even me.  ;D

They just announced a full set of Alien Wave 3 figs on Blue Cards as another NYCC exclusive. So that's another $90 they got me for right there.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines

Those were the only ones I saw... also apparently they're available this coming week.

They're really cranking stuff out these days.

Lord of Light and Garloo haven't appeared on their website yet, but hopefully soon. The Phantom Starkiller is just a weird bootleg figure made by this guy/company called "Killer Bootlegs" which is sort of like the Sucklord stuff but less campy. I guess they were a fan of his work and decided to do a goofy one-off for whatever reason.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on October 10, 2018, 12:47 PM
Meh.... made up **** from some relatively recent company isn't really a collecting focus of mine.  If he was based on some kind of bootleg from the 80's I'd be interested, but I'll pass.

Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on October 16, 2018, 09:47 AM
Just ordered the newest Lord of Light figure plus Phantom Starkiller. Decided to pass on the Great Garloo...maybe if they have a sale one day I might pick it up.

Been trying to figure out their whole scheme with the Alien figures. They've got the three 3-packs, but only five of those were put out on the blue cards. Was supposed to be six but the factory messed up Ripley and Jonesy. Still not sure if that one is ever coming or not now. No idea if they have any plans to put those other 3 figures on blue cards either. Or any individual cards for that matter.

Of course the 3 new figures are spread out over 3 different packs, so you'd have to buy all of them.

ugh.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on October 16, 2018, 11:30 AM
Beats me, but this is one of the reasons I just open everything.  Screw all the packaging nonsense.

The last few months have been too busy from a ReAction standpoint... Fiends, Universal Monsters, Universal Monsters variants, the new MOTU wave, all those MOTU exclusives, Alien, Planet of the Apes, Hellboy, and all the money spent on getting caught up on some stuff I'd skipped like Street Fighter and He-Man prototypes...  I'm hoping for a lull for a month or three.
 
I'm skipping on Garloo, Lord of Light, and Starkiller.  I don't have any attachment to those properties, and the if the Starkiller is just based on something that someone made up recently I can live without it.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on October 16, 2018, 09:49 PM

Post by: McMetal on November 5, 2018, 08:20 AM

Universal Monsters Wave 2 didn't blow me away, but mostly because it's all stuff they've done previously. I can't say I care much about Breakin' or Teen Wolf either, but pretty much everything else looks pretty enticing.

Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on March 16, 2019, 05:43 PM
That's an awesome deal... I bought them right away since I open everything.  It's not very often they let stuff go for more than full price.

I got my MOTU blind-buy cases the other day.  I managed to sell the 8 duplicates for $90 after eBay fees, so I'm about $160 into these 16 new figures / variants:

I was actually going to post on here a few weeks ago to ask if anyone was going to pick up those blind boxed MOTU figures. Those look pretty neat. I've been very tempted by this line. I have He-Man and Skeletor, but have really been thinking about ordering more. It would be great if they eventually made a Battle Cat in this line with a Taun Taun styled trap door to put the rider in. 🙂

Just to double check with the experts here, but what MOTU characters have all been released in the Reaction line so far, not including all those exclusives? I know we have obviously had He-Man and Skeletor (and their battle armor variants), and the most recent wave on BBTS consists of:

Orko
Ram Man
Mekanek
Scare Glow
Faker
Evil Lyn

Other than that I recall there has been Teeka, Man at Arms, Zodac, Stratos, Beast Man, and American Man (and maybe Tri Klops?). Is there anyone I'm missing?

Ok, between researching online and the cardbacks of the few I have, I think I have a better idea of what it would take to catch up. I don't necessarily care about all the variants, and am more interested in the basic characters for now.

I had picked up a He-Man way back when this line started, and didn't get around to getting the others at the time.in the past month I've gotten Skeletor, Teela, and Evil Lyn and I think I might be hooked. The problem is I don't know if I can bring myself to open them, kind of love the box art. It also logos like it may be pricier to pick up some of the other earlier ones I missed, so we will see. Thanks everyone for your help. Side note, also picked up a Marty McFly, and preordered the basketball Teen Wolf. I've been watching eBay for a Goonies Chunk to finish off that set too.

I would say thereís a good bet we will see them go up in the next few days. It usually seems to take them a few days to sort out inventory post-con. I am keeping a close eye on their Instagram and a Twitter accounts just in case.

Has anyone seen any hint that the Wonder Con Shadow Nosferatu might be offered up later or should I be heading to eBay for one??

Heís up now, Rob! I just picked up him and Orange Garloo...good luck!  :)

BBTS has a wave of MOTU figures up for pre-order that I haven't seen yet from Super 7... I'm wondering if they jumped the gun?

Holy cow, I thought they were done with Fiend colorways variants. Nice find, Rob! I will need both of those.

Got my Garloo and Nosferatu variants Friday afternoon...they look great!

Just ordered all those new MOTU variants.. I didn't realize the Merman was the carrying case paint scheme... but it LOOKS pretty different, so I ordered the new one too.

Black Magic Slayer FTW!

I placed an order previously for the 2 new Alien figures but it seems totally MIA. Hope it's just due to their warehouse moving.

Post by: Rob on May 9, 2019, 06:16 PM
I finally got a shipping notice for my Alien Day figures, AND both Slayer figures today.  Two separate orders, one old and one new.

Which has me thinking the warehouse stuff is basically sorted out now and they're getting caught up.

Thanks Rob! I was wondering what the non Big Chap figure would look like. I need to order a case of these things as soon as I get some money together.

Saw they teased Jerry on FB...should be coming soon!
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on May 31, 2019, 11:38 AM
Yep!

I'm glad this set only had 4 figures... I've already managed to sell one of the extra sets of Xenomorphs for $40, and have one more, plus two unopened boxes to cut into the $126 the case cost.  By the rest are sold I'm done I'm hoping to have gotten the 4 for less than $50 total, which is reasonable for the 4 including the short packed one.

Re: Jerry... that's great, but we need Glenn and Doyle or it doens't mean anything.

I like the finish on it... but the Universal Monsters re-hashes... a third Maria... a third King Diamond... a fifth Nosferatu... a 12th Fiend... it's getting exhausting, and seems incredibly lazy.

Plus the GID Great Garloo and Phantom Starkiller #5! I hear you, lots of repaints going on there.

I guess I will still get them all, but i am definitely feeling colorways fatigue.  :P

I haven't had a chance to watch the video yet, but I saw via PixelDan's (toy reviewer) Twitter and YouTube that Super 7 is going to be doing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reaction figures. Kinda cool.

Yeah, I didn't bother with those ones the first time since I don't have any attachment to them from a nostalgia standpoint... but more lazy.

The TMNT is certainly interesting, but I couldn't care less about the giant pizza box packaging - I just hope they're readily available later on.

I picked those up awhile ago... managed to sell the extras and basically get the 4 I needed for around $45 total.

I do need to get the Iron Maiden blind buy case... but I've been buying too much ReAction stuff lately, and I don't think there's a huge demand for that one - I probably have some time.

Whew, this was an expensive day for me! Just got all of the ReAction SDCC exclusives I wanted except for the Phantom Starkiller. Looks like itís off to eBay for him. I also picked up the other 3 most recent Fiends I had not gotten yet. Cha Ching!

Iím sure a bunch of this stuff will sell out quickly, so I am pretty relieved. Especially the Universal Monsters and that POTF Maria.

 ;D

Still have Aliens figures and They Live to look forward to as well... :D

Got my SDCC stuff today, the box was pretty well crushed on one side and unfortunately one of my Misfits cards was banged up. Even more concerning, several of the punches appear to have fallen out in transit. I was able to replace most of them but canít even find the ones for 3 of the 4 Universal figures, so that kinda sucks.

Holding to score Phantom Starkiller tomorrow.  :)

Check your PM's, just had one question about how much of the card you need.  I was thinking I'd just cut an inch around each punch instead of mailing the whole things?

I was over at BBTS, and saw they had some new ReAction figures up for preorder (Ninja Turtles, Archies, etc.), but the price was now $17.99 each. Are these taking a price jump?
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on September 13, 2019, 01:56 AM
I added it all up and Iíve spent nearly $1500 on ReAction this year and thatís absurd.  Any price hike and I might start selling, or Iíd at least get very selective.

Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on October 2, 2019, 04:47 PM
Looks like it's official... they raised the prices of every figure on their website to $18, including the really old stuff that people already weren't buying for $15.

I'm going to have to change how I collect this line, I can't justify $18 each for 5 POA.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on October 2, 2019, 09:44 PM
Crap, I had a bunch of stuff I was planning to order, should not have put it off. I was waiting for the NYCC exclusives to go up but ugh, so much more money now.

I agree Rob, between the price and having no practical way of displaying any more carded figures, I really have to re-evaluate what I am picking up from them now.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on October 2, 2019, 09:57 PM
We should all email them and tell them.  Maybe theyíll reverse course if they get an earful.  :-[
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: McMetal on October 16, 2019, 09:55 PM
Super 7 finally put the leftover GID Universal Monsters from NYCC up on their website for ordering. I managed to get all four plus a GID Slayer I still needed. That was $100 right there!

I may cut back, but it wonít be on Universal Monsters, and I am all in on They Live figures when those hit too.

The price is definitely keeping me away from stuff I was already on the fence about though, like RoboCop.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on October 17, 2019, 11:28 AM
I've got it on pretty good authority that the price increase is just a cash grab and isn't for any real reason in terms of tariffs or materials cost or licensing costs...

$15 was already pushing it for 5-POA, $18 is ridiculous.  I think they've overreached and I'm officially cutting back.  I'm doing the opposite of what you're describing though.  I'm starting with the 12 million variants.  If they want to sell the same action figure 10 ways, $18-$20 is insane.  These 4 Universal Monsters variants and the glow in the dark Robocop figures are the first variants from a part of this line that I collect that I'm passing on.

I kind of hope this backfires and they walk it back, especially since I'm pretty sure they can.  If they lose volume, they might. 

Also, I plan on waiting for stuff to be in-stock at EE and buying things $80 at a time to get free shipping which will undo some part of the price hike. 

Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Brian on October 22, 2019, 05:27 PM
Iím really tempted by the new Ninja Turtle line they started this week, but I just canít pull the trigger at that price. As has been mentioned, there would be riots if Star Wars TVC went to $18 per figure, so I certainly shouldnít pay that much for 5 POA, simplified stuff. I know the size of the companies make some difference too, but it is still kind of spendy.
Title: Re: ReAction Lines
Post by: Rob on October 22, 2019, 05:49 PM
Super 7 is a smaller company and doesn't do the volume that Hasbro or Neca does, but when you look at what Neca and Hasbro can put out for $24.99 and $12.99 respectively, $18 plus tax plus shipping for 5 POA is an absolute joke.

 I've gotten loose lots of GI JOE and Star Wars over the years. Some are rejects (mismatched parts, sloppy or missing paint ops) others appear to be overproduction or something.  It's part of the gamble just like the randomness. I've decided to pass on those for now.
