Super7's Foster gets ready for spring

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...

Think spring with the newest Pocket Rose Vampire photo

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.

First photos of new ReAction figures appear photo
First photos of new ReAction figures appear

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 RocketeerBuffy 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?

Ghost of Caveman Dinosaur to haunt Super7 photo
Ghost of Caveman Dinosaur to haunt Super7
by Brian Szabelski

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?

Gargamel lucky bags are back at Super7 photo
Gargamel lucky bags are back at Super7
by Brian Szabelski

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 chills out with a new Foster, Crystal Mecha

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

Super7's Alien ReAction figures available for all as set
by Brian Szabelski

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.

DesignerCon 2013: Super7

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 ...

Ilu Ilu, Super7 bring forth an exclusive Tokio Supernova
by Brian Szabelski

Just a heads up to Super7 fans: they're releasing a new figure today, an exclusive version of Ilu Ilu's Tokio Supernova. The 6-inch-tall translucent vinyl figure has its guts exposed (not real guts, mind you, just a paper insert) and comes with a removable cape and helmet. I think the insert is of a Stormtrooper's armor, too, which is fitting given Super7's love of all things Star Wars.

The price is US$120 and the release time at noon Pacific (3 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. GMT) in the Super7 shop

SDCC 2013: Super 7
by Vanessa Cubillo

This year, Super 7's booth had many designer vinyl exclusives and Alien merchandise. There were 15 limited edition designer vinyl figures available. The limited exclusives were Crystal Mecha, Kandy Kaiju Foster, Zombie Fighter, Doku Duo, Little Prick, Fossilla, Honoo, Leroy C, Zagaturd, Caveman Dinosaur, Mummy Gator, Monoghost, Rose Vampire and Baseball Boy.

There were also two-packs of micro Rose Vampire and Mummy Boy. The main attraction was their ReAction Alien figures with free accessories available at the event. So on full display were figures of Ash, Ripley, Dallas, Kane and Alien.

Alien shirts and the collectible pint glasses were also out. Not seen were the exclusive two-packs of Discovered Sales Sample Kane and Big Chap. They weren't there because they all sold out on Preview Night. That was fast!
