Attention Space Ranger Recruits!  The next big Disney Pixar animated movie, Lightyear–a science fiction adventure reboot/origin story/prequel of sorts with Chris Evans as the voice of Buzz Lightyear of Toy Story fame–is right around the corner, coming to theaters in June.  Sure to be one of this summer’s blockbusters, the film’s previews (see below) have shown some cutting-edge animation, and it will have a musical score by Michael Giacchino, who, in addition to creating some great scores in past years, is the current go-to guy for movies, creating music for all the big recent and forthcoming genre movies, like Spider-Man: No Way Home, The Batman, Jurassic World Dominion, and Thor: Love and Thunder.

To get kids young and old ready for the movie, toymaker Super7 is using a bundle scheme first made famous back in 1977 for Star Wars–the infamous Kenner Early Bird Certificate Kit–which was quickly designed to get revenues and a Star Wars tie-in gift in time for Christmas 1977, despite the fact the action figures weren’t ready to ship yet.  Super7 is doing a similar promotion for Lightyear.  The Early Enlistment Bundle for Lightyear is a limited edition set of ReAction Figures with special bonus items only available through its offer at Super7.com.

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:
