The Super7 Iron Maiden “Eddie” ReAction Figures Are Gonna Getcha!

It was back during the 2017 Toy Fair in February that I first learned of the Super7 work in progress “ReAction Figures” that would bring Iron Maiden’s famous mascot Eddie to action figure collectors everywhere but unfortunately there was not yet a prototype to see and only scaled cardboard image to examine. Months later at NY Comic Con there were some prototypes to examine but not to purchase. I shared that image as fast as possible on our Official Instagram and am repeating it here for those who might not have been following us yet.

Now the time for waiting is over, well, kinda sorta since we still have a week to wait until these awesome action figures can be ordered. Behold the full first series of Eddies – There are four in total and each showcases a different character that the famed mascot became on an album or song. I’ve used the company’s official photography since they did such a fine job of presenting them.
