Growing up in the ’80s it seemed like every year there were hoards of playsets that would launch based on some of the cool movies of the day. I have many fond memories of my Star Wars Ewok tree house playset. I also have some scary memories of watching the original Alien movie. Since that flick wasn’t aimed at kids, there were no playsets to go along with it.
Funko and Super 7 have teamed up to launch a sweet retro Alien playset that looks straight out of 1979.
The figures with the Alien Egg Chamber playset are not the realistic fare we are used to seeing at Comic-con, but are a softer more kid-like sort – like the old Kenner action figures. The big catch here is that there are only 250 of these available and they will sell for $100 each. If you are going to San Diego Comic-con and like Alien, you better get there early and head straight to the Super 7 booth (#5245) and be prepared to whip out your cash.
