Super7’s Ultimates line of action figures for the sophisticated collectors out there is growing and absorbing more IPs. Silver Hawks, TMNT, Disney characters, and now America’s favorite TV family, The Simpsons.
Pre-orders are open now until September 20th for this first wave of Simpsons Ultimates figures. The launch date for these figures will be in the Summer of 2022. Rather than going to the usual route with the standard assortment of characters, Super7 is hitting a few one-off appearances instead.
No, the family Simpson is not the main attracting in the first wave of this line; instead, the focus is on Moe, Poochie, Robot Itchy, Robot Scratchy, and Deep Space Homer.
The Simpsons ULTIMATES! Wave 1 is inspired by some of your favorite episodes, like “Deep Space Homer,” “Itchy & Scratchy Land” and “The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show.”
Deep Space Homer, Moe, Poochie, and Robot Itchy & Scratchy are made-to-order, highly articulated, deluxe 7” scale action figures featuring a variety of interchangeable parts and iconic accessories.
Every 10 years, a new Simpsons toyline hits the market to varying degrees of success. The Playmates line, which lasted for four years and produced over 200 figures, was by far the best of the bunch. Each character had the ability to interact with various playsets, allowing for them to “speak” a few contextual lines depending on which playset they were plugged into.
The Super7 figures are a different beast. These are premium items. The figures are not mass-produced. They also come with a price tag of $55 each. Super7’s toys are made for the adult collector, and it shows. How will this equate to sales and the continuation of the line? Well, that’s up to you as a collector. If you want to see it flourish, pre-order a figure or the whole set now!
