I collected several series of Star Wars cards as a kid, from the awesome Wonder Bread cards to the green, yellow and red series. As an adult, I’ve been super interested in foreign versions of collectible and was really excited to discover these Japanese cards.
I will be in San Diego next week for Comic-con. While I will certainly be picking up my Alien ReAction exclusives, I would love to say hello to any other toy fans attending.
If it isn’t already painfully obvious, I can’t wait for these Alien drink glasses from Super7 to release! This is the first time they’ve provided some really good pictures and announced a release date of July, so I feel compelled to post.
Alien was one of the first films that just plain scared the pants off me. I have nightmares about going on bug hunts to this day. The Kenner 18′ Alien is still one of my most prized toys. So these drink glasses have a special place in my want list.
The four 16 oz pint glasses each have a scene from the movie on one side and a text description of the life cycle of the xenomorph on the back. Super7 managed to capture each of the scenes that really stuck with since seeing the movie, particularly the Space Jockey. But see for yourself…
By now you’re familiar with my fanboy adoration of the new Alien products being developed by Super 7. If you’re going to be at Wondercon (and why the frack hasn’t it been brought back to the Bay Area where it belong!? Anaheim? Really? Doesn’t SoCal have enough cons? We don’t have any big ones in the SF area for Odin’s sake!) be sure to pick up the Super 7 Alien Toys Catalog, pictured below. It’s based on those classic Star Wars figures catalogs that I used as a Christmas and birthday wishlist generator.
I wish I was going…
Since SDCC 2012 I’ve been talking to you about Super 7’s amazing fast food style Alien glasses that they have in the works.
Well, Wondercon is around the corner and Super 7 will be debuting prototype glasses for the first time ever. You can find them at booth #1166.
The whole set of 16 ounce pint glasses will set you back a paltry $49.95. If I could pre-order them today, I would, but I have to wait for their release sometime this spring. The set’s graphics include:
The Space Jockey
Kane’s Chest Burster
Ripley at the airlock.
What’s the point of having a blog if you don’t sometimes toot your own horn? None I say!
