  1. Super7's ReAction line specializes in action figures the way that people of the G1 generation were most likely first exposed to them: in a 3-3/4" scale with five swiveling points of articulation - shoulders, hips, and neck, Kenner Star Wars style.This past weekend at ComplexCon in Long Beach, CA, Super7 partnered with the NTWRK retail platform to release a special Def Jam Records edition of ReAction G1 Soundwave!
