Super7 x Funko Alien ReAction Kane in Nostromo Space Suit Action FigureWhen I first saw it in Action Figure Digest, Kane in Nostromo Space Suit stood out as being overly memorable. If memory serves the identity of the character was called into question (i.e., who was in the suit?) but I do distinctly remember their writing that it looked more interesting from the back than from the front. This isn't a stretch. The Alien space suits are wonderfully distinctive works of art, looking like an old diving bell while retaining some rather fanciful armor-like elements and various protrusions.

For those keeping track, Super7 also released a faux prototype version of this figure last year as a convention exclusive. It featured the same sculpt and I prefer the painted one, mostly because there's a lot of nice detail work here. The tan suit is a little tiny bit glossy, just like the original Kenner figures from almost every toy line - the other figures in this line have quite literally lost their shine. The textures are tough to replicate, but this one looks and feels like a cousin of my original Klaatu. The others all capture the look just right, but there's a tiny bit of the feel that's tough to copy. Kane has mostly done it, although I am unsure if the figure originally had a dome on the helmet or was just open. The photos seem open, but if they made a change like this it seems like it's for the better. (Even if I can't think of a 3 3/4-inch Kenner figure with a clear helmet, it's a nice one.) I doubt we'd see this many paint applications on a final product in the 1970s, so it's not necessarily a total loss that we had to wait this one out. The thought of a helmet having one color of paint - let alone two - seemed like more than Kenner would have done back then.

Super7 x Funko Alien ReAction Kane in Nostromo Space Suit Action Figure

As it was based on an unfinished and possibly incomplete Kenner prototype from 34 years ago, I would surmise that a weapon or accessory was left out. Kenner frequently sculpted figures with accessories in mind, so if a figure had a hand designed to hold a gun, he had a gun. If a figure had no accessories, the hand wouldn't be designed to hold one. Whatever was meant to go there, the world may never know. The index finger and thumb are fused together, which was exceedingly uncommon in Star Wars figures of that age - Kenner gave Greedo and Hammerhead similar hands, but generally shied away from it on most other toys over the next couple of decades.

This figure looks, feels, and moves like a figure from that era, plus or minus a few cents. Some figures - particularly chunkier ones like the original Anakin Skywalker - seemed to be made of a stronger stuff, and this is one of those figures. Like Anakin, the legs don't fully bend to 90-degrees so it may not be able to sit in vehicles, but it's not like it really matters at this point since this figure no longer has to fit the "toy" mandate. Of course, with it in mind it's still a better toy figure than many of the ones I review in this column. It stands, it sits, it looks pretty good, but it's not like it has an awesome likeness to John Hurt. It's not like any resemblance is purely coincidental... but it's close.

Since you probably bought the set of 5, I assume you have this. It really does look like something Kenner may have made, other than the fact the deco and helmet would likely resulted in this one costing more than the other figures by quite a bit back in the day. There's really nothing I can say to convince you of why you need this figure - the style should immediately grab you and you'll know that it's a must-have in your toy box. And if you don't feel that way, well, just go get a Marvel Legend or something. Those are nice too.

Notes: The brown cardboard boxes are different. The brown box marked 3813 contains 1 set of black carded figures - this is an "inner" as it ships from Funko. The 3813.1 box shipped from Super7 with a carded set of 6 blue card figures inside. Blue cards were shipped to people who ordered the set for $100 direct from Super7 at San Diego Comic-Con 2013 or through the Super7 web site after the show. The group shot above is of the opened black card set, which cost $65.00. The blue card set included a bonus clear grey Alien figure available nowhere else at this time and is expected to be exclusive to this release. If the 16bit.com sample is opened, we'll update this photo.
