Tag Archive: Super7 2021 ReAction


More than a year ago we previewed a new line of Super7’s retro-style Kenner action figures featuring Star Trek: The Next Generation.  This was a reboot of a line of Star Trek original series figures we discussed here at borg back in 2015.  The second wave includes Commander Will Riker, Counselor Deanna Troi, Lt. Cmdr. Geordi LaForge, Dr. Beverly Crusher, the notorious Q, and… that black oil slick that killed Tasha Yar called Armus (yes, Armus gets a figure before Yar!).  Even better, Super7 is taking a 19th century Victorian theme next.  Following Wave 2 fans will get their first Captain Picard of the seafaring HMS Enterprise, plus newly promoted Worf (both from Generations) along with Data and Geordi as Holmes and Watson.

Don’t confuse these with what we revealed this past January–those toys were from the company called Playmates, which returned with its own line, too.  Playmates was the original toy company that made its name creating a stunningly expansive line of Star Trek action figures (okay, it’s actually the second company that introduced the figures after Galoob’s short run).  Playmates released a small-sized Worf from Generations, but not a sea captain Picard, and Data and Geordi from the Victorian episode “Elementary, My Dear Data” were only issued in a special nine-inch edition.

Check out the new designs for the second wave of Super7 figures, and their new cardbacks, plus links to pre-order all of the first 16 ReAction Star Trek: The Next Generation action figures:

Last summer we previewed the first phase of a new, retro style line of GI Joe action figures for fans of the 1980s animated GI Joe: A Real American Hero series and the corresponding reboot of GI Joe toys.  The first wave of G.I. Joe ReAction figures–the Kenner-style 3.75-inch figures with less articulation joints than the originals but now with better sculpts–included Snake Eyes, Scarlett, Baroness, Cobra Commander, Destro, Kwinn, G.I. Joe infantry (in three skin colors), and Cobra Troopers (in three skin colors and two costume styles)–for 15 variants in all.  Get ready to add Storm Shadow, Roadblock, Roadblock PSA, Flint, Snake Eyes, Mutt PSA, Duke, Lady Jaye, Bazooka, Major Bludd, Gamemaster, Navy Blue Shirt Sailors, Shocktroopers, and ready-for-battle Cobra Commander, Baroness, and Firefly to your collection, all available for pre-order now at the above links at Entertainment Earth. 

Take a look at our preview of the new line of figures and packaging below.

Normally this would be the kind of news you’d find at San Diego Comic-Con, which was canceled this year again because of the pandemic.  Hasbro is farming out to action figure and pop culture collectible company Super7 to deliver two new action figure lines, rebooting the classic small-scale action figures based on the 1980s G.I. Joe animated series.  One line will he a step down from the original articulated figures from the 1980s, and the other will be a step up.  The step up is the Ultimates line, articulated 7-inch scale figures with extra arms, heads, and a variety of other accessories.  The step down is the Kenner-style 3.75-inch ReAction line, with less articulation than the original line, but with more series-accurate designs and still more variety–including new figures–to come.

The first wave of G.I. Joe ReAction figures includes Snake Eyes, Scarlett, Baroness, Cobra Commander, Destro, Kwinn, G.I. Joe infantry (in three skin colors), and Cobra Troopers (in three skin colors and two costume styles)–for 15 variants in all.  The first Ultimates wave includes four figures–Duke, Snake Eyes, Cobra Commander, and the Cobra Battle Android Trooper (BAT).  These are in addition to the new -inch and 12-inch figures that are tie-ins to the coming Snake Eyes: G.I. Joes Origins movie (check those out here).

Munsters banner

The Munsters have arrived in collectible toy lines before, but none who could hang out at the Death Star or Mos Eisley cantina and mingle one on one with your other action figures.  So it’s kind of a big deal for the 1964-1966 classic horror comedy series to be getting its Kenner-scale debut this month from toymaker Super7 and its ReAction line.  How would you design a line of figures from this famous monster family?  All black and white?  Grey tone?  The new sculpts and packaging seem to be the best of both worlds, providing a bright yet spooky look, along with some fun, displayable packaging.  We first previewed the prototypes of the new figures (shown below) here at borg in February 2020 before the world ground to a halt.  Note that the packaging art has been updated. 

Check out the final designs below.  You also can order all three figures from the new line via the below links.
