The folks at Funko have passed along some photos of they and Super7's upcoming ReAction line releases, and it's good news for fans of 1980s cinema. Two different Snake Plisskens from Escape From New York will be availabl...
The father of Final Fantasy, Hironobu Sakaguchi, has announced his PAX Prime 2014 panel where he will discuss his history developing role-playing games, along with revealing more about his new RPG, Terra Battle. Find out more info at PAX Prime website.
Super7 has sent along a friendly reminder in image form that SDCC is right around the corner and they'll be at the convention once again. Specifically, they'll be at booth #5245 this year with ReAction figures, new colorways ...
WonderCon at Anaheim is just around the corner. It's this weekend (Friday, April 18th - Sunday, April 20th), actually, and Super7 updated their blog with what they're taking to the show. Check them out at Booth #1453 if you're hitting the event, and maybe snag one of their three WonderCon exclusives.
In the gallery below, see a picture of their 9-inch tall Toxic Garbage Dump Fossilla, which will be going for US$95 each. "Cast in four color melted drip vinyl, blood red, putrid purple, shocking blue, and bile yellow, each monstrous monstrosity is a unique, one-of-a-kind cacophony of color!"
The other two exclusives are a Spring Training Pocket Baseball Boy (header, right), which is 3 inches tall and going for US$25 each, and a "Mellow Yellow" translucent colorway of their Pocket Rose Vampire (same price; header, left). Gotta love that sweet, sweet, translucent vinyl.
Super7 brings us a new colorway of my favorite kaiju cookie, Foster, just in time for spring. The bright green Spring Forward Foster is cast in a sparkly translucent vinyl, and features buttercup yellow and silver accents for his mouth, eyes and filling. My Foster obsession compels me to buy one, I think.
Spring Forward Foster arrives at noon Pacific Thursday (3 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. GMT) for US$25 each. It's not as much of an instant buy as the frost-colored Foster, but I'll likely still own one. How about you?
Super7's next Rose Vampire takes root this week, and all plant puns aside, the S7 crew are teasing us with a Spring Green Pocket Rose Vampire. As you can guess, he'll be a green machine, cast in glittery green soft vinyl with metallic blue leaf accents and a little splash of dark green for the petals ... not to mention his red eyes.
The Spring Green Pocket Rose Vampire arrives at noon Pacific (3 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. GMT) on Thursday at Super7, retailing at US$25 each.
Entertainment Earth has posted a whole bunch of listings and photos of the expanded ReAction line. The Funko-Super7 collab started with the Alien figures released last year and is expanding to pretty much your entire childhood: Predator, the Terminator franchise, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Escape from New York, The Rocketeer, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Goonies, Universal Monsters, Pulp Fiction, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Friday the 13th are all among those joining the 3.75-inch figure line.
To me, it seems Funko's supplying a lot of the licensing muscle with the ReAction line (most of the licenses are ones they already have for their Pop! vinyl series) while Super7 is handling the production side of things, which given their product quality is a pretty good thing.
The figures currently have release dates ranging from April to October and are retailing at US$9.99 each. What's your thoughts on the expanded line and the figures revealed so far, Tomopop readers?
I've been a fan of Super7 and Josh Herbolsheimer's Caveman Dinosaur since I picked one up at SDCC 2013, and he's had a few colorways, but nothing quite like this. Super7 is rolling out the Ghost of Caveman Dinosaur on Thursday, with a transparent sofubi body and painted on details (his club, eyes, teeth and outfit). It's not a drastic design change, but I think its pretty awesome looking.
If you want one, they're going on sale Thursday at noon Pacific (3 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. GMT) in the Super7 shop. Does the ghostly caveman dino catch your eye, Tomopop readers?
They're baaaaaaack: Gargamel lucky bags are returning to Super7 on Thursday! Like years past, these will be a random assortment of various Gargamel pieces, including unique colorways and maybe even a special piece or two. Of course, you'll have no idea what you get until you open your bag up, so it's a bit like a very expensive blind-boxed figure.
Price-wise, they're US$300 each and available starting at noon Pacific (3 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. GMT) from Super7. Anyone tried their luck at a lucky bag before, and if so, how'd it go for you?
Super7 won't let the cold weather of winter slow down their release train. Partially because there aren't blizzards in San Francisco, but also because they have some new colorways to share, including an appropriate one for th...
Happy New Year, Tomopop readers! We are now officially in 2014, so we now have a whole new year for awesome toy releases. Super 7 wanted to get a jump on that and announced that they would have a secret New Year’s release with a mystery collaboration.
So at the stroke of midnight PST, Super 7 released Keep Watch Mummy Boy. This figure is of a giant eye ball in a mummy’s body. Collaborating with Mishka, this vinyl figure glows in the dark and stands at six inches tall.
If you want to own Super 7’s very first toy release for 2014, Keep Watch Mummy Boy is now available for US$50 in their online store.
Though they went up for pre-order earlier this year, Super7's Alien ReAction figures are finally heading into retail. The figures are shipping out to everyone who pre-ordered them — and they're including a sixth figure as a bonus to the early pre-orders — but for the rest of us, you can now pick them all up as a set.
The figures are only available right now as a set and are retailing at US$75. That gets you Ripley, Ash, Dallas, Kane in his Nostromo spacesuit and the Big Chap xenomorph. You can also grab the Alien collectible glass set for US$49.99, too.
Kicking off our DesignerCon 2013 coverage is Super7, which had a brand new sculpt at the show! And it's something I really want! That would be the new Pie Guy, cast in his orange Pumpkin Pie Guy variation. I love, love, love ...
