As usual, Super7 brought a ton of awesome collectibles to San Diego Comic Con, and this year, there was some unexpected surprises to go with the kaiju. The biggest newsmakers from the Super7 crew were from the new licenses they've announced at the show, first and foremost being Alien and Transformers. In terms of Transformers, we can expect a 24-inch Super Shogun Optimus Prime, along with a line of Japanese vinyl toys inspired by the old-school robots in disguise! There will be fast-food restaurant-inspired drinking glasses, T-shirts, and limited edition art prints featuring the Autobots and Decepticons as well!
The Alien figures were based on unreleased Kenner prototypes from 1979 of 3.75-inch figures of Ripley, Dallas, Kane in his Nostromo suit, Ash and the titular xenomorph. Super7 is making them as part of their ReAction Figures line, and they'll feature five points of articulation along with all the stylings of a late-1970s figure. At the booth were the xenomorph and Kane, which you can check out in our gallery. Super7 will also be making some retro glasses for Alien based on those you might find at restaurants in the 1970s.
Also at the booth were some future releases from Super7 alongside their SDCC exclusives, including Krooked Priest, a new vinyl figure by artist and skateboarder Mark Gonzales; the prototype head for the long-awaited Super Shogun Boba Fett; some very cool one-off customs from Josh Herbolsheimer and Brian Flynn like a Mummy Tank and Mummy Gator Casket Cruiser; the Destroy All Kaiju line's Crystal Mecha and Chris Cooper's El Diablo; and the Mascot DX line's Odd Galaxy's Stinson. Check out everything in the gallery and let us know what you like!
