The fiends over at Super7 are looking to keep making you reach for your credit card, and especially so if you are a fan of the legendary Horror Punk band the Misfits. Here is some details and visuals (from their side of the fence) on the latest Misfits Fiend being released to the general public. This one celebrates a special vinyl edition of their “Static Age” album.
The Press Release:
Do you want heavy? Super7 gives you heavy! Emerging from the darkest corner of heavy metal is the legend King Diamond! As one of heavy music’s most revered icons, King Diamond casts an imposing presence and Super7 is honored to welcome him to our ULTIMATES! Figures Collection. This made-to-order deluxe 7″ highly articulated figure features King Diamond from the classic Mercyful Fate era of the early-1980s. The figure is lavishly detailed and painted and features an epic assortment of interchangeable accessories:
Welcome back my friends and might I add that it is so nice to see you here early in the AM. As previously reported, PiercingMetal is in attendance at the 2019 New York Comic Con and it’s our 10th Annual go round at this event. I’ve also suggested that those who are just joining us should be clicking HERE first so they can see all of the posts related to this massive happening. Picking up where we left off yesterday I present my final image from the Heavy Metal Magazine booth, a celebratory tome from the band Megadeth. This is a fantastic collectible for sure.
[MESSAGE FROM THE CLERGY] We wish to inform you that the Ghost Papa III Super 7 Reaction figure is now available.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: It’s without question that Super7 has been pulling out all the stops when it comes to the coolness of their ReAction figure line. So far we’ve gotten a whole bunch of Iron Maiden Eddies, a Motorhead Warpig and the Slayer Minotaur on top of the amazing Misfits Jerry Only. If you are a collector of all things Metal, Punk and Rock, you will need to allot some budget over to a Super7 account. For those who are just seeing this kind of stuff for the first time and feel they seem familiar then you are not imagining things. These figures are designed in the style of the original Kenner “Star Wars” action figures which if you are a collector of a certain age you might have a box of them hidden in a closet somewhere. This is one of my favorite lines and every year at Toy Fair I look forward to seeing what they have coming down the pike when I attend this convention. I’ll close up now but I wonder what you folks think about this brand new collectible. Will you be purchasing? Chime in down below in the comments.
You’ll have to pardon my missing this news the day it was first announced by a little bit but here we are now and the scoop is here. The great bassist of the legendary Misfits, Mr. Jerry Only will be signing his brand-new ReAction figure that comes care of Super7 at the amazing Forbidden Planet. Check out the skinny below on how you can participate.
The Press Release:
Forbidden Planet is beyond excited to announce the return of JERRY ONLY, original member of the legendary MISFITS. The punk rock icon will be at Forbidden Planet NYC to celebrate the release of his very own Misfits Super7 Re-Action figure. Not only will FPNYC have the new Jerry figure, they will also have a selection of Super 7 Misfits Fiend figures available too. Mark your calendar for Thursday July 11th from 6 to 8pm to meet the famous monster at Forbidden Planet 832 Broadway in NYC, and get an autographed Jerry Only figure!
To attend the event and meet Jerry Only you must purchase at least one Super 7 Jerry Only figure at Forbidden Planet NYC. With purchase of the figure you will be permitted to get a maximum of two personal items autographed as well.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m a big fan of the items that come out from Super7 and when I hit the assorted conventions I can’t seem to get to my credit card fast enough to get one or two of their latest round of awesome. It was a few weeks ago that I first announced some of their Rock and Metal coolness HERE in case you missed it. I actually saw this super cool Jerry Only figure at the recent Toy Fair but since they were still finalizing some designs with the musician I wasn’t able to photograph it 🙁 What we saw was awesome and we wanted one for sure and now along with all the rest of you I get to get on the line and shake hands with the monster man himself. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet Jerry a number of times over the years while reporting on his shows and appearances such as this and I have to tell you that he is one cool dude. Fans from the region are going to want to be a part of this signing and also get their butts over to the Psycho Las Vegas event where Misfits are one of the headlining acts. So as I close this up I wonder what you folks think about it all and if you are a toy collector in some sense what do you feel about the Super7 line of spookified trinkets? Chime in down below.
