New Super7 Shogun Figures Line

I woke up this morning with all the Shogun Warrior Facebook groups all aflutter about the new Super7 Shogun Warriors Figure line presented at the 2017 New York Toy Fair...

Super7 Shogun Warrior Action Figures 2017 NY Toy Fair


These prototype test shots are quite handsome, even in gray. The graphics are quite like the packaging for the original Shogun Warriors (note that Super7 must be working with the current license holder). Earlier Super7 produces the Super Shogun Star Wars figures - new jumbo machinders of the Stormtrooper and Boba Fett, in several variations (these tend to debut at the Star Wars Celebration event but can still be purchased directly from Super7 - with the exception of the first Storemtrooper - so please don't pay those exorbitant aftermarket prices).

From the photos the first release appears to include:
  • Great Mazinga (Great Mazinger)
  • Garada K7 (Mazinger Z Villain)
  • Getta Dragun
  • Dublas M2 (Mazinger Z Villain)
  • Mazinga-Z (Mazinger Z)
  • Rokuron Q9 (Mazinger Z Villain)
It's an interesting selection introducing new characters to the US and perhaps echoing the current sofubi release of the classic Mazinger Z villains in 55 cm by companies like Mandrake and others in retro-styled boxes. For myself, I can't wait to once again hold new-packaged Shogun Warrior figures!

From other photos it appears that Super7 will also provide new M.U.S.C.L.E Shogun Warrior figures - an interesting tie-in sure to delight the Shogun Warrior community!

These are the other photos provided by Super7's Instagram:

Release date from a few sources is 2017 Spring or Summer. I can't wait!
