Regardless, I'll be swinging by the pop up shop for monsters. Love 'em!

To give you an idea of what Super7 does, here is their exclusive SDCC pop up shop set of monsters, available at their temporary shop down the street from the show on Friday from 6-midnight.

I think Batman is in good hands (possibly better?) if he ends up with Super7
Those are sweet! Are they limit 1 per? Can U get extras for any board members? :D

Don't know if they're limiting purchase numbers, but unfortunately I've already got five people who've asked me to grab them a set if possible and even if there's no limit I would be uncomfortable going above that.

Super7 is much more collector friendly than most other toy companies-- and they usually offer their con exclusives live on their website at the same time. Sign up for their mailing list so you don't miss out.

I still find it odd Funko would be putting out Green Hornet merchandise now and in the same breath sell off their Batman 66 line to another company. I don’t think sales matter as much with Funko as they make the majority off their pop figures. Take Green Hornet, both the single GH pop and the 2 pack with Kato are exclusives produced in low numbers. You know they are gonna do a Green Hornet/Kato figures with Black Beauty at some point, this may be an exclusive as well so again in low numbers. We all know anything Batman will out-sell anything Green Hornet. It just makes more business sense to produce these tie-in series at the same time. I have a feeling wave 2 wasn’t held up because of sales or Batman. I have a feeling it was held up to be released with the Green Hornet/Kato/Black Beauty figures that seem very likely to be coming. Why would Funko bother to buy the GH license just for a couple exclusive pops? I think we are getting figures too. Putting out GH figures with Batman 66 wave 2 just seems like the best marketing to me.

I'm confused about the super7 monsters! At toy fair they showed off packaging for the mole people and Dracula I think, so I don't think these monsters will be exclusive.

These are what they announced as exclusives for the pop up shop they are opening down the street from the con. They are special Day-Glo colors, which I dig, reminds me of the old Ben Cooper Halloween Costumes.

Ok, thanks for the info andy! I was getting really nervous that these characters would be exclusive!

Didn't Funko do a line of movie monsters around 3 years ago?

Yes they did indeed do monsters, and I think this may just be super7 trying to make better sculpts and more charecters? I also believe they alone are doing the "reaction" line now

When Funko had the Reaction line they did a set of Universal Monsters; Frankenstein, Dracula, Bride, Creature, Invisible Man, Wolfman and The Mummy. The sculpts were very generic and for me all but The Mummy and the Wolfman were passes. This line looks much better, I'm a big fan of Super7.

Cool packaging. I followed them on Twitter to see if they plan to sell any online.

Being tributes to the Remco Mini Monster line from 1980 (I guess), these are a step up, especially the Creature. I had the Remco Creature back in '80 and thought it was that line's standout. From the looks of the figures in your post, it seems the Creature still comes out on top, with the Metaluna Mutant coming in a close second (oh, if only the Mutant had been produced in 1980..).

$15 per figure is the cost on the monsters.

Last night I was feeling particularly crotchety about no info on this. I tweeted at Reis O'Brien that I would donate to a charity of his choice for a real answer. He replied very quickly with what Rick stated above, regarding them being sculpted and at the factory after a delay. .......


How come in this day and age of marketing toys that we have not seen mock ups, test shots, painted samples , etc yet. How come if they are at the factory we have not heard the line up.

No matter who has the license...by the time something gets to the factory...most of the time there has been an OFFICIAL announcement.
