Yeah, this blew up all over the internet last week, but I already had a TCT, so it waited for a week. I’ve been a very outspoken proponent of Super7‘s awesome 2-foot tall super Shogun Stormtrooper figures with their track wheels and spring-loaded fists. I can’t wait for the entire Star Wars universe to be done in this style. Gimme Yoda!
BAM! This Super7 Star Wars Super Shogun Stormtrooper is not to be messed with. Not only does he stand a whopping two feet tall, but he combines two beloved franchises: Star Wars and Shogun Warriors. Now, I’ll admit that I missed out on the Shogun Warriors as a kid, but while working at ToyFare I was introduced to their awesomeness. As a gigantic fan of mash-ups, this huge piece is right up my alley. Stormy here comes with the firing fist, as you can see in the picture above, removable BlasTech E-11 laser blaster, wheels on his feet for mobility, articulation in the arms and neck, retro box, character-themed stickers and a blow-molded polyethylene body. This big bastard can be pre-ordered right now over on Super7’s Star Wars Super Shogun minisite. It’ll cost you $299, but Super7 is offering Early Bird savings that include free shipping (it’s usually about $30), a guarantee to get the figure before anyone else and an Early Bird commemorative certificate. So, if this looks like something you’d be intersted in, head on over to the site and try and get the Early Bird discounts while they last. As of now, this behemoth is scheduled to ship on May 29th, so you’ve still got some time to save up your pennies.
And just imagine, if this one does well, we might get Super Shogun versions of Darth Vader, Boba Fett and Chewbacca! I know Chewie is about as far from a giant robot as you can get, but just think of how cool he would like!
