Among their hoards of Masters of the Universe, Planet of the Apes, Aliens, and newly announced dozens of other licensed products, Super7 also has something interesting in their arsenal.
A line of original action figures/characters they call ‘The Worst’.
These characters aren’t anything new, per se. Super7 is launching their second wave of these bad boys with a new set of personalities and characters.
While I personally think there’s something neat about some of the designs, I can’t help but wonder a few things. And that is primarily which people in the toy collecting community are most into The Worst figures.
I pose this question completely openly and without any sort of judgement; these figures are good looking and appear well made! But because most of the people in my collecting circle collect licensed products and brands (usually ones they connected with from childhood or have a vested interest in the world these toys represent), I’m truly curious about original action figures collectors.
I speculate that the people going after these might be Super7 enthusiasts. Possibly, they’ve tapped into members of the custom action figures community. Maybe people who collect horror toys would be drawn to these off the bat.
It’s not my intention to sound dumb here– maybe I’m just not part of the club. But I’m still inquisitive to know who is, because I don’t see Super7’s original products really discussed in any collector’s circles. Not at toy shows, not at conventions, and not in the Facebook groups I lurk.
And believe me, it’s a lot of them.
But with that, to repeat, The Worst is a set of original action figures from Super7 that re soundly constructed with nice paint jobs. I’d be interested to hear from them for more information on the fans of these figures, because they’re intriguing.
They’re just not…well…
