The 1979 Alien Playset You Wish Kenner Had Made Can Be Yours at Comic-Con


Props to Funko and Super 7 for pulling this off – selling retro-style action figures based on old prototype molds is one thing, but a whole new playset based on what you imagine could have happened under different circumstances back in the day? I’m no particular fan of softer-sculpted figures, but the kid in me who remembers when Star Wars toys did this kind of thing begs to differ, and is enjoying a retrogasm right about now.

Just not quite a $100-priced, fight-your-way-into-line-for-a-limited-edition-of-250 retrogasm. But to each their own arousal.
