PiercingMetal Thoughts: Unholy Sh*t!!! Does this look amazing or what? As a lot of you know, we see the Super7 offerings at Toy Fair each year since they began attending the trade show and we just love everything they do. For the newbie, the company is most famous for their line of ReAction figures which are sized like the original “Star Wars” figures that Kenner released so many years ago. The articulation is less than a figure like this one is of course but with collections for Iron Maiden, Misfits, Universal Monsters, Transformers, Slayer, Megadeth and so many more you are going to start signing over your paycheck to them if you are a collector of things related to Heavy Metal. Now remember this is a made to order action figure so if you want one you are going to need to order it or speak to a retailer who plans on ordering a stockpile of them to have it set aside. This is my first look at their “Ultimates” line and I can only imagine the other great things that are to come after this one. Since the virus outbreak has found me a little light on “mad money”, I might not be getting this to quickly myself but if the Ko-fi takes off maybe I will order one just the same. What do you readers think about this figure? Will you be ordering one? Chime in down below in the comments section. See you next time around.
