Look out, Funko. Super7 is looking to give you a run for your money. Super7’s “ReAction Figures” line was previously licensed through Funko, but now the company will be doing its own thing. I have no idea if it and Funko are both owned by the same parent corporation or if they are truly separate companies or what, nor do I give a rip. I just want cool toys, and I will purchase them for a fair price from whatever company provides them.
There will be new ReAction Figures of all the classic Universal Monsters. In addition to offering figures of the Wolfman, the Mummy, the Metaluna Mutant, The Phantom of the Opera, Frankenstein’s Monster, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and one of the Monsters from the Mole People. The company will also be offering trick-or-treat buckets for Halloween featuring the likenesses of the Mummy, the Creature, the Wolfman, and the Frankenstein Monster. And to top it all off, there will be new versions of the Colgate Palmolive “Super Soaky” soap bottles that were originally released in the 1960s. Monsterkidz of all ages will want to get their hands on all of them.
