First teaser shot of Tally Hawk on Quick Silver's arm.I knew there were not going to do vac metal, but damn thats not even shiny metallic paint. This is just colored plastic like a Gundam model kit.
I for one look forward to the Lio Convoy and Retro Blasting live streaming putting the company on full blast while the fans do the best work.
>>9078116I'm fine with it because all I want is the green buzzsaw robot guy.>>9078121Go to bed, Joefan.
When are they gonna get to Bravestarr, dammit?
o/~ Partly metal, partly real, Siiilverhaaawks o/~So if there's no metal, are these also not real?
>>9078132When Brian Flynn apologizes for what he did.
>>9078136What did he do?
>>9078116Looks more like a grey hawk to me
>>9078149He sold a thundercats for $400 when its way too much for lioconvoy's yearly budget
>>9078149Don't take the bait, anon, the /toy/troll is in full "nobody is allowed to talk about toys" mode today.
>>9078161>implying there wouldn't be anti super7 posts made laterjust giving them a head start so you're all made aware
>>9078116Looking at the pictures, it seems their entire gimmick is the silver metallic paint. Is Super7 asleep?
>>9078116Fuck off Crimson Commander
>>9078116>I knew there were not going to do vac metal,Why would they, that process just flakes off after a few years, shorter if you coat joints with it.
>>9078116Looks neat but it's kind of a let down that they wont be chromed. I guess they'll be aiming for the more cartoon accurate duller tones.
>>9078223There has to be a more permanent alterntive right? For all the advanced made in automation and manufactury, it's crazy to think someone hasnt cooked up a better alternative to chrome.
>>9078223Is this for newer vac metal stuff? Because my original Metalhead still has his. But my old War Machine from the Mega Man 2-pack is all flaked away
Meant to say advancements
>>9078116You fuckers haven't even put out the 2nd wave of TC and now your announcing yet another line?!
>>9078238Feels good to be a Turtles Chad. We're getting our stuff on time.
>>9078229The miniscule R&D budgets in the tiny action figure industry go toward computers and product development, not materials research. Even toy companies rarely do materials research besides LEGO
>>9078223>>9078231They should use the metallic paint that Hasbro used for their Iron Man 2 figures and Silver Surfer.Silver Surfer used a silver that shimmered and had shading to make it appear like it changed colors depending on the angle.The IM2 figures looked ace as fuck, where you expected to see yourself in the finish.
>>9078296Despite that being the case, wouldnt the automotive or tech industries have discovered a chrome replacement by now? Surely the demand in both those industries would have yielded some result right?
>>9078296Possibly (I don't work in those industries so idk), but I imagine cars and tech don't care about durability. They want you to buy new cars and computers every few years. Meanwhile action figures are sold to kids who want to throw them at a wall without breaking, and adult collectors who want them to sit in a detolf for a decade without decaying. Very specific materials use case, and it has to be cheap enough in bulk to deal with shrinking department budgets and rising costs. Sadly action figures aren't a growth industryIt would have been nice to see a small company like S7 do a little experimenting... But I guess they mentioned they tried already in that one interview and couldn't get it to work
>>9078116It's just a render, so hopefully they're gonna colour the figure silver in the final.
They'll sell animated style ones first then chromed ones after everyone bought those. It's typical of toy companies lately, they don't give you exactly what you want right away.
>>9078302You really can't replace chrome and substitutes are usually shit, if not more expensive.>>9078312>I imagine cars and tech don't care about durability. Dumb.It's very important toward the appearance of their wares, so they do care a lot.Cars especially are known for their long term dependability and a lot of former mainstays like General Motors suffered when they started cheaping out and were no longer reliable.Tech though? They don't even need to cheap out, because shit environmental laws helped them out when they stopped using durable resistant materials like cheapass lead, and instead using more expensive (and less durable) materials because they had to. Plus, with how fast software (applications, OSes, games) moves, old shit just can't keep up.... or couldn't. We've hit a wall where tech actually hasn't improved like it used to.I still have my original iphone from way back when and it used to still work with almost everything up until like 4 years ago. Then pandora stopped working, then youtube, etc, and now it can't even get service anymore because ATT stopped supporting it (i switched to an HTC phone way back in 2010 though and have since had like 8 other phones since).So [b]quality[/b] tech actually works fine for a long time. It's support that makes shit obsolete.Also, here's Silver Surfer looking as as fuck with its fineass pearlesque silver paint. You can see a hint of blue and pink that is more noticeable in person.
>>9078350That looks trash as fuck, is that supposed to be a good example?
>>9078116is that the fucking heman style body? werent they a lot slimer?
>>9078379yes. one of my favorite silver paint jobs ever. Superior to vacuum metallic in every way but reflection.No photo will ever do it justice. You need to see it in person.
>>9078127Oh, Joefan is here? Wonder how his divorce is going.
>>9078394>>9078350This Colossus had some great metal plastic too.
>>9078116I actually like the cartoon colours. But they should definitely do silver recolours as well.
>>9078116Looks kinda lame, but if the line does end up being a flop I hope we at least get both versions of Mon*Star.
>>9078510>>9078394>>9078350These are not great. Pepsiman is the best we can hope for. Otherwise I might just prefer the matte cartoon color like in OPs pic.
>>9078628Plus the villains never had the vac metal, despite being drawn as reflective as the silverhawks in the cartoon. I guess it was just a toy gimic they chose to run with.
>>9078381Yes, but so were the Thundercats and we see how that went.
>>9078807well this is an american company why should I expect any effort?
>>9078628i dislike that sort of paint job, because metal flakes and shiny powder is ugly. Whatever Hasbro used for their shiny metallics is infinitely superior that I'm sad hasn't been replicated since.also, there's that one silver pen that has brilliant metallic and is also reflective, but that's supposedly really really fragile.
>>9078642Who was tthe bad guy with the tuning fork type weapon? I used to swing the forks of my broken bike as a kid and think i was him. Also loved buzz saw but he was my only thundercat toy, guess they were expensive back then?
>>9078510The new Colossus from the 2pack has better silver paint.
>>9079000that does look pretty nice
Another teaser, seems like a full reveal will happen on the 10th.
Don't care. I'm still going to buy every last one of them. SilverHawks was a big part of my early childhood and I've always hoped for some kind new toys or reboot or anything.
>>9080941>my fav villain and toy
Their "super7 x GI Joe in July" tease today wasn't the big thing Brian alluded to was it? He said no one would expect it and they already have gi joe shit on the website
>>9081678Some prefer his bright green toy deco over the mustard cartoon colors.
>>9080941I had the the Kenner figure and that thing was great.Of course in a stupid kid moment I "fed" Buzz-Saw a gumdrop and fucked up his gimmick.
>>9078116And of course it'll use some unpaintable plastic so we won't be able to spray it silver. Fuck these retards.
https://super7.com/blogs/news/super7-to-revive-silverhawks-franchise>SilverHawks ULTIMATES! figures will be available for pre-order directly from Super7 on Thursday, June 10 at 12pm PT. The Quicksilver, Steelheart, and Buzz-Saw ULTIMATES! figures will be $55 each, while the supersized 11” Mon*Star will be $85. As a made-to-order release, delivery of this wave is expected by Spring 2022.
Looking forward to the LioConvoy stream tonight.
>>9082501What the fuck these look so much better than the thundercats. I demand a redo on the figures they’ve given us.
>>9082515Fuck off Crimson Commander
>>9082501>delivery of this wave is expected by Spring 2022
>>9082511>>9082514Never watched Silverhawks before or had any of the toys but these are some cool robots, I might get them
>>9081331They'll probably release a toy version later in the line, it's an easy cheap repaint.
>>9078522>>9082514So what's the lore here? Why does he have a star in his name like a Japanese idol?
>>9082642alien mob boss who gets power from a Moon-star also looks like a monster.... do ya get it?
>>9082642basically mumm-ra with a new coat of paint.
>>9082669>>9082678I see, googled him and he is actually a furry thing?Still neat though.
I need some Visionaries Ultimates.
>>9082678>>9082726Mon-Star is basically Mumma-Ra if he was a werewolf that transforms into a robot when exposed to the rays of a monster star.Also he's a space mobster.
>>9082799>a werewolf that transforms into a robot when exposed to the rays of a monster star.>Also he's a space mobster.Holy based
>>9082799So cooler Mumm-ra
>>9082514I'm surprised they didn't give us a badly-haired regular Monstar spare head like the old figure did.
>>9078127>all I want is the green buzzsaw robot guy.anon, I...>>9080941I wonder if we'll get a SDCC neon green version sooner or later.
>>9082799>>9082830Also his personal spaceship is a biker-gang-styled robo space kraken
>>9078522We got both versions of mumm-ra so it's a safe assumption
>>9083324Damn, that's great
>>9082501>the supersized 11” Mon*StarGood lord, Monstar's going to be taller than my goro, killer croc, and krang's android body.
>>9082632>Never watched Silverhawks before or had any of the toys but these are some cool robotsJust wait until you see the fire breathing robot minotaur.>>9082642>So what's the lore here?Here's the theme song. It's about a minute and a half long and rather succinctly summarizes the absolute 80s-tastic fever dream that was the silverhawks franchise. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4Kgfp9jpLgComplete with the "you can't do that on tv" anymore steelheart ogle, quintessential impractically but thematically shaped base, monstar transformation sequence, and for fun, a giant robot with buzzsaw hands surfing a space limousine while fistfighting a chrome space babe while a space cowboy riffs on his laser guitar in the background. >>9081282>I'm still going to buy every last one of themI was originally going to just pick up bluegrass and melodia for a battle of the bands display, but steelheart looks really good (compared to april), and buzzsaw and monstar are chunky as fuck so, yeah, a full space gang rogues gallery might be fun.
>>9083366>space gang rogues galleryposted the wrong image
>>9078132It may be a while.After the silverhawks reveal, they still have to work on the next waves of transformers, ninja turtles, thundercats, reveal the power rangers wave they're working on, maybe hint at the godzilla thing they're doing, and then hit up a quick shout out to everyone who wanted tigersharks before silverhawks. Also the secret GI Joe thing they're hinting.
>>9083371I hope they do Hardware, Melodia or Mumbo Jumbo
>>9083371>melodiaHer and a host of others gave me feelings I shouldn't have had for another six years back then.
>>9083382Brian said Toxie is getting some buddies too so more Toxic Crusaders on the wayAnd he also mentioned something no one is expecting sometime this summer too
>>9083436>And he also mentioned something no one is expecting sometime this summer tooThe Spanish Inquisition?
>>9083382They've got too much on their plate. Like I said earlier they haven't even gotten the second wave of TC out and they have the gall to ask for money for their thunder tank.
>>9083366>Just wait until you see the fire breathing robot minotaur.Holy cow, it's Moloch!
>>9083230Well going by the show, which these are based more than the Kenner figures, Mon*Star's regular form is hairy and different from his powered-up one that just having an alt-head on this body wouldn't be accurate.
I'm going to say something controversialSteelheart > CheetaraI'm glad she's in the first wave.
>>9083382Brian keeps mentioning they have some license that will blow everyone's minds too, as in something crazy no one has ever made figures of. I wish they'd get stuff out sooner but I guess its not an issue so long as people keep preordering.
>>9083382>>9083436Also there will be a disney wave 3 in a few months.
>>9083831>I'm glad she's in the first wave.Not controversial. I'd say the big three were april, steelheart, and cheetara, in that order. (I'm sure I'm missing a big one, but those are the main action shows off the top of my head. Maybe Scarlett?)What is controversial is her being in the first wave AND looking sexy rather than toned down. The main girl showed up in wave 3 of TMNT and Thundercats, so she shouldn't be showing up until at least xmas. On top of that, she's much more feminine than april and pumyra, and even cheetara, which is something I thought they weren't leaning into. >>9083417>Her and a host of others gave me feelings I shouldn't have had for another six years back then.You hang on to that unique nostalgia boner, anon. It's a gift.
>>9081678Basically this >>9081703And the green just makes the blades pop.Plus he was my first and favorite SH figure.>>9082638I hope, yah.
>>9078127>>9081331>>9081287>>9081703>>9081725>>9083314>>9083948I'm genuinely surprised at how many anons on /toy/ have a soft spot for this weirdo. I remember realizing that I'd lost mine years ago and thinking that "I can't even complain about this on toy, no one remembers who the fuck buzzsaw is".
>>9083963/toy/ is all 40yo losers like you dude
>>9083966you're so cool keyboard bully, you must be so happy inside.
>>9078225that chrome still looks great
>>9082507Looks pretty gud, but needs to be shined up some.
>>9083966I mean, yeah, that's why I hang out here.
>>9083944>>9083831What about Octavia from Tigersharks? She's pretty hot. Honestly S7 could make some real dough by making Tigershark figures.
>>9082775If hasbro ever remembers they own them, Im sure they'll do it
>>9083966Dude.Some of us are 30-36 year old losers.
>>9084302I imagine Tigersharks is something they plan on doing eventually, might as well complete the trio.>>9084316Even worse, some of us are 20 - 30 year old losers.
>>9083963I'm pretty sure I had Buzz-Saw going into the start of the TMNT boom because before I wrecked his gimmick I repurposed him and Mon*Star as Turtle villains.The toys at least lingered at Kiddie City into the end of the 80's/start at the 90's to get discounted enough that I got Buzz-Saw, Mon*Star, Molecular, and Mumbo Jumbo all at once.
>>9082501Kinda surprised they did two hawks, looking at the OP image it seemed like it would be able to fold out the wings.
>>9082507Really nice silhouette. Those hips are great.
>>9084355S7 usually dose two heroes and two villains. Though I wouldn't be surprised if next wave we get a SH and either star gazer or an off the wall character like condor.
>>9084461Sorry I meant the actual birds.They did two, one with folded wings and one with spread wings instead of having the wings themselves articulated.
>>9082514He's gonna cost sooo much more than normal.
Seems like the hawks don't have a waist joint, hopefully its not an issue with posing. Speaking of which, it would be great if these came with some stands so they can be displayed in flight.
Can you cancel preorders with Super7? I think I want these, but would like to see the actual products
>>9084720They'll be up on other retailers like BBTS and TCP whom you can cancel.
>>9083448I lol'd>>9083831Ya know what, I'm gonna agree with you here. If she wasn't in this wave I wouldn't even be in this thread.
Weren't we meant to get more info today?
>>9084360Yeah, the hips really catch my eyes. May get this line, never bought anything super7 but i loved the magazine when it was around
>>9085112Really Chad looking line-up. I want Super7 to get the rights to Rankin & Bass Lord of the Rings.
>>9085112I'm in awe at the size of this lad
>>9084302>Honestly S7 could make some real dough by making Tigershark figures.>>9084327>I imagine Tigersharks is something they plan on doing eventuallyThe main Super7 guy said in an interview (and I'm paraphrasing) that when they showed off thundercats, half the comments were "awesome/hype" and the other half were "what about silverhawks?" and then a year later they started to tease they got the silverhawks license and before they even put out teaser figures, half the comments were again "awesome/hype" and the other half were "what about tigersharks?" to which he responded basically "we're just starting silverhawks, calm your shit". They're getting to it, but it's a made to order company and they've got a dozen different things going on. Tigersharks was implied to be coming after Silverhawks, so maybe they'll drop ~2022 or 2023 assuming things go smoothly.
>>9085141The none spinning head seems a little pointless to me
>>9085168Spinning head doesn't have teeth.
>>9084355>>9084468I'm surprised too, but it seems like the line's budget was looser for the good guys because they're physically smaller and they have no accessories, so they get wing arms and perched/flying birds. Buzzsaw and Monstar are massive, plus get guns and shit and as an apparent result only have one version of the pet each. >>9085141Also I laughed at the fact that everyone has alternate hands and Buzzsaw got alternate grabby fingers so he can tug his own pullstrings. Although, help me out anon, what exactly is the difference in expression between the two closed-mouth heads?
>>9085188Saw blade spins on one of them.
>>9085132How degenerate of me is to buy this just because it would be a cool sexy robot lady?
>>9085212You act like a lot of the board doesn't do that already
>>9085194Awesome. Was there a video where they talked about these or something?
Preorders are up at their site and bbts, probably other places as well.
>>9085224Only Mon*Star because they made him fuckhuge
>>90852120% (by 4chan standards). -Buy what you like. It doesn't matter if you're a fan of the series or just like how the toy looks. We don't gatekeep here. -It's made to order, by buying one, you're not depriving a hardcore fan of the toy, so not knowing who the character is doesn't matter. -Supporting a small indie company like Super7 by buying sexy robot lady helps them make money and helps other fans get new characters in the future. -Hajima Sorayama is a legend for the chrome sexy robot lady (google his work if you're not familiar) and his fanbase means you're not the only person who the aesthetic appeals to. -DO NOT HOTGLUECombine these bullet points and you're not a degenerate. Also note a few of the anons in this thread are also surprised at how apologetically curvy this toy is compared to their other female figures. You're not the only one to notice and be intrigued as a result.
>>9085230>>9085232Here's the other one to complete the anon bait.
>>9085230>Hajima SorayamaOh fuck. I didn't know it was this same guy. Alright, sold. Excellent points all around.
>>9085230>-Buy what you like. It doesn't matter if you're a fan of the series or just like how the toy looks. We don't gatekeep here.Not that anon but I'm in this situation too, I only heard of Silverhawks within the last year since people started talking about Super7 doing them and had no interest in the series.But when I saw Buzzsaw and Mon*Star I was like "wow those are cool!" And now I'm totally on board, the other series villains like that minotaur and goblin guy with the staff seem cool too so I'll probably buy them too.
>>9085239>Oh fuck. I didn't know it was this same guy.The cartoon is unrelated to the artist Hajima. What I meant is, sexy robot ladies are a pretty common staple of pop culture, (pic related is itself a monroe reference), so on the degenerate scale, you're still not raising many eyebrows as even a Cheetara figure might be considered more degenerate by casuals.
>>9085245>>9085239The important part is only that you don't act like the crossboarders who came here for nicee/figma samus/that new terrible optimus/etc. Nobody cares if you're buying something horny, just don't act like a faggot about it.
>>9085245Ah, gotcha, oh well. But still, those robo pinups are exactly what I was thinking of when deciding to order her.Also, I may have no knowledge of silver hawks, but I had this awesome bastard (and the tiny one that came with the figure) as a kid and I absolutely loved it.
I keep hearing something about Super7 owning the Silverhawks IP, is that true.
>>9085253>those robo pinups are exactly what I was thinking of when deciding to order her.They share a similar design for sure, a design that has proven to be fairly popular in the mainstream popculture world, that's why I brought the pinups... up. >>9085253>I had this awesome bastard (and the tiny one that came with the figure) as a kid and I absolutely loved it.That's actually a silverhawks toy that's supposed to be Tally-Hawk, which is the pet bird this guy >>9085120 comes with. So the fact that sexy robot lady comes with a pet bird that hits your nostalgia button for a childhood toy you loved is just another reason to pick the figure up.
>>9085255...Seems like it, on the fwoosh forums a user found this. https://opencorporates.com/companies/us_ca/202018510249It lists Brian flynn.Hopefully they do more with the license like shop it to Netflix for a new series.
>>9085255Sort of. They currently have/own the rights to produce toys and merchandise for the Silverhawks IP. They do not "own" the IP outright - they can't make a new cartoon or movie. Just toys and shirts and stuff.
>>9085264Well shit, nevermind >>9085265 , I may be wrong.
>>9085264Well that's interesting, a new cartoon could be neat but I fear it could disrupt what seems to be a pretty calm and docile fandom.
>>9085230Which one of you has the balls to customize steelheart into lady armaroid?
>>9085125The sheer heft of him alone makes him come across as a super robot villian. He should be tangling with the likes of Mazinger Z.
>>9085141Too bad he's not gonna have the ridiculously awesome mouth/saw-spinning-lever.>>9085125That's awesome.RIP flip-open-chest-for-head-switch action though.
>>9084329>Kiddie CityWooof, and I thought my local had a vaguely raunchy name.
>>9082501>>9082507>one bare armwhy
>>9085535My guess is it's to show their humans, plus it gave them an excuse to not vac metal the entire toy.
>>9083966This is 4chan, everyone here is a loser
>>9085144I'm really tempted even if they didn't give him an alternate Mon Star bad hair head.
>>9085665Yeah its weird that it isnt included but im guessing they will make another figure with that head. Im not upset that the flip feature isnt included since it scratched up the faces as i recall.
>>9081331You really think s7 isn't going to release version 2 and also silver painted versions of the silverhawks?
>4th quarterHow are they doing it bros? Super 7 never announces shit that is going to be released within the same year.,
>>9081331>>9085141>>9085782That'll be $65USD
>>9085535She was a fan of the 2013 robocop reboot
>>9085120I'm a little sad they didn't do any of the play gimmicks of the original. at least give their hawks some kind of play gimmick
>>9085440Nobody because the figma is great?
>>9086417Yea, but this is a recolor and releasing after the original run. Gotta add onto the price because late comers and nostalgia fags will have no choice.
>>9086304He looks great as a recolour too.
I'm thinking on buying Mon*Star and Steelheart. Probably Cheetra and Lion-O too.
>>9085125How's the QC on Super7 stuff? I'm tempted by Mon-Star.
>>9088085Varies, I only buy their TMNT stuff atm and the turtles are known to have loose hips (though that may have been fixed in the rereleases) but in general their big figures like Bebop, Baxter and Mutagen Man don't have any major QC issues I'm aware of so I imagine Mon*Star will come out fine.
>>9088085There are some common issues such as bent weapons in package or loose joints, but for the most part people haven't had anything major to complain about.
>>9085230does coom remove chrome?
>>9090732Don't forget the terrible paint app.
>>9091853>neca anon projecting
>>9091853I didn't forget to mention it, because it's not an issue. Super7 toys do not need a hot tub to bathe in straight out of the package, and there is no expectation of paint chips and flakes to pile up on your table when moving their joints for the first time (and every subsequent time.) The incidents of major cracking in the paint are also thus far limited to figures like Rat King, which was not a Super7 figure.These paint app issues you mentioned seem to be>>9091866>>neca anon projecting
>>9088085better than neca
>>9091866Holy fucking lmao
>>9082775can we get some Bionic 6 ultimates too?
>>9092231After they do Dinosaucers.
>>9092250You underestimate nostalgia fags and the fact that fans were robbed of Dino toys when the show aired and have been waiting all these years.
>>9092258and then lioconvoy can bitch about it
>>9091866You're either super7 or retarded.
>>9091973Their Thundercats figures are painted by chimps. You can't fucking deny it.
>>9092276>under 5k sub youtuberWhy do you care? Just ignore him and talk about toys. >>9094197Lion-O's face. How many of those were returned?
>>9094197>anon>has pics>posts themFair enough. I was talking about my ninja turtle figures, those are the only ones I have experience with. I admit I was wrong and concede that the pics you posted aren't the cleanest paint jobs ever, especially not for 50 dollar figures. Having said that - about paint jobs, my super7 bebop is fine, and my neca krang is fine too (outside of the expected joint-flaking). I'm pretty sure the whole paint debate thing is mostly brand wars shit.
>>9094248Ignore our god and saviour?
>>9094197Those come from Mattel's factories
>>9085144The sculpt has me worried how little articulation he'll have.
>>9078116lol, this is supposed to be 50 bucks?Fuck me, I'm actually starting to miss Neca and half their Godzillas were garbage.
>>9095507>not wanting to spend 50 to 80 dollars on toys that look like garbage makes you a schizoI just want a halfway decent alternative to the SHMA line.
>>9095785This is a thread about Silverhawks and Super7 toys.
>>9095136Source? These are the Super7 ones, not the Mattel ones.>>9095142>>9095148Sup Brian Flynn.
>>9095789Super7 has the Godzilla license dipshit, and I'm looking at their past and current toys for reference to see what the pricing and quality for their Godzilla line may look like. These cheap-looking toys at nearly SHMA pricing does not instill any level of confidence
>>9096287They look exactly like what they should look like and match the show's models 1 to 1. All their other lines also do this and look and play great. Take your autism somewhere else.
>>9096287>I'm looking at their past and current toys for reference to see what the pricing and quality for their Godzilla line may look like>>9095785>>not wanting to spend 50 to 80 dollars on toys that look like garbageAnd you're disappointed... why? How are they garbage? Show me a better, more screen accurate tally hawk accessory that comes with Quicksilver produced by another toy company in the last 50 years. You're not getting what the company does. >Ninja Turtles line are faithful recreations of the original toys, because they're only doing toy versions.>Silverhawks and Thundercats are faithful recreations of the cartoon characters, because they're doing the figures based on the screen appearance and not the original toys. You should actually check out their transformers line for an idea of what their Godzilla line may look like. >There are a million transformer sublines and producers>Almost all of them are contractually prevented from making a "transforming" transformer>Super7 made action figures of both popular and very obscure characters right off the bat, with obscure or meme-ish accessories, because "fun and offbeat" is the thing that has never been done before with the franchise.So uh, I personally wouldn't be surprised if their godzilla comes with basketball shoes and a hoop.Or. On the other hand, the company started as a fan magazine for vinyl godzilla figures. So they might be very faithful to the original 4-5 poa vinyl toys from way back when. Or they do "serious" toys to compete with all the other toylines doing the same thing. Or they do something else. I'm pretty sure you're going to be disappointed by anything they do. 55 bucks is the baseline for their figures. And you won't have it in hand for about 8 months - 1 year after ordering it. It sounds like you're looking for japanese import quality toys at the scale and significantly cheaper price of mass produced american toys. Super7 is neither of those things.
>>9096957When NECA can make better figures for half the money they should fuck off with whatever they think they are. Not one single person is going to be happy with $55-$85 godzillas that look crappier and articulate less than what is already available that will also be harder to get if you miss a PO and take as long as you said after ordering. They can do something different all day if they like but that doesn't make it not shit. Their reaction figures alone are some of the worst, most overpriced shit on the market right now and the ultimates are not much better. Totally undeserving of the word Ultimate.
>>9097229>NECA can make better figuresstopped reading right there
>>9078121Fans are doing better work than this definitely.
>>9096287Super7 has no original works or concepts of their own, so I'm predicting they'll base their line off the Trendmasters one in the 90's.
>>9082511i just want this guy. if they end up making a green one, ill either get that or both
>>9097459What about actually basing them off the movies?
>>9097234Better than the Japanese? No. Better than Super7's ass? Yeah.
>>9097474A lot of people in this thread will probably double dip for neon green Buzzsaw, double 74.
>>9083366That intro REALLY made me think of Thundercats.
>>9085535go watch the cartoon

>>9106313Same company/talent as thundercats. Thundercats proved to be such a gargantuan success for Rankin Bass that they took a page out of HB's playbook and ripped themselves off before anyone else could. If you're interested in other TC cash-ins look into Tigersharks. Of the three animal-themed warrior series, I think Tigersharks looked the coolest. Shame since it didnt last long.
>>9097459I had considered that, but I personally think they might aim to please all the untapped markets in the Goji fandom. I could see them making merch based off GTS, Hanna Barbera Godzilla, and Marvelzilla in addition to Trendmasters homages and some of the more obscure Toho kaiju like Kamacuras, Mogera, and Kumonga.
Can't find shit on Super7's Godzilla merch. You're bullshitting me. Post a pic.
There was no effort to make them shine either by vac-metallizing or at least by really metallic paints. So they're dull and boring.
