Then the announcement of all the new lines had me ecstatic. Now it turns out I wont be able to get these?!?!? I have pretty much sworn off collecting figures anymore, and this is the kind of stuff that has made me stop after decades of collecting them all. Collecting in the 70s and 80s and 90s was fun because you could save your money and get what you wanted as easy as going into a store. These days prices are ridiculous (I love the Jumbo SW figures and would collect them all if they were reasonably priced, instead I had 2 and probably wont buy more even though I want them all), and first had availability (straight from the store shelf or directly from the figures maker) is a thing of the past. I had hopes for these lines, but those hopes are gone now. It’s only fun if anyone that wants to do it, can do it.

I have purchased all of the Super 7 Alien items…. if I can’t keep doing that, I won’t buy another single thing. DONE.

I grew up in the 70’s, saw ALIEN in the theatre as a kid, and always wanted the Kenner Alien doll (but never got it). I would absolutely love to dive into this line, but the exclusivity has prevented me from doing so. I don’t like to reward scalpers with huge mark-ups on ebay. If they were to make these available for online purchase I’d buy every single thing offered. Oh well…..

After seeing the egg chamber playset my wife and I popped Alien into the ole DVD player and had a ball. Then come to find out it is an exclusive?!?!?! That is ridiculous. Make it available to the public!

What made the 1979 and 80s era so fun was the “collect them all!” Mantra. This kind of nonsense is killing my enthusiasm for their toys. Its sad that Super7 is too stupid to “understand” why other companies makeenough to sell after the show. They badmouth “professional flippers” but this whole scheme of theirs is playing right into the flippers hands! Damn, Super7, I thought you guys were cool, but you’re woefully out of touch with what your fanbase really wants! I want to “collect them all”, you jerks are making that nearly impossible. I might as well quit now.

Living in the UK, its not that easy to pop across to SDCC even if I wanted to, and I’ve already supported this line as best I can – even if it means shelling out a small fortune to buy all of wave 1 as imports. Not to mention the money I’ve put down pre-ordering the rest of the retro ReAction line.

Its kind of disheartening that even if I was prepared to pay through the nose on eBay I’m unlikely to get most of these items. Ok, I can live with some of the figures being available later (hopefully we get the rest of the Nostromo crew!). And I probably dont need simple repaints of spacesuits, head swaps or other minor variations.

But I really hope the egg chamber playset makes it out for general release. The only people who are going to be happy about these are the people who manage to hoover up a fortune on the secondary market. I understand the desire to do something to make this event special, but between this and the Firefly exclusives it feels like the majority of people who’ve pledged their support to these figures are getting royally hosed.

– We want to bring back some of the fun and experience of SDCC…
– To help make it a bit more fun…
– …have some fun collecting toys.
– Remember when all of this was supposed to be fun?
– In the end, we want to make it fun…
– …to make this year as fun as last year was.
– The idea of the blind bagged egg was to just make it a really fun experience,
– Getting back to collecting and having fun…
– …the SDCC exclusive chase often overlooks the fact that you are there to have fun…

“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

So all the people that have been onboard since the start and just want to have a complete collection, but can’t make it to SDCC because it sold out in 90 minutes, thanks but no reward for your loyalty? I guess Super 7 knows how to make good stuff, but doesn’t know what it’s like to be a completist collector.

I don’t remember there being any hard to get exclusives in the 70’s. Even the Star Wars Cantina set could easily be ordered through a Sears catalog everyone got. It actually WAS fun then, because everyone could get everything, there were no scalpers or super limited exclusives. Knowing you’ll never have them all kind of kills it for me.

Maybe a hint of what might be in those eggs.
