This collection’s signature piece, the Good Ol’ Charlie Brown 3.75” ReAction Figure showcases Charlie Brown as he appeared in the very first Peanuts newspaper strip from October 2nd, 1950. Standing by Good Ol’ Charlie Brown’s side will be a life-size 16” Snoopy vinyl figure featuring a teasing Snoopy, complete with a removable Charlie Brown Mask and fabric shirt, as he was seen in the October 28, 1953 strip. Six additional 3.75” ReAction figures join in on the fun, including Cowboy Charlie Brown, Racoon Hat Snoopy, PJ Sally, Baseball Schroeder, Pirate Linus and Winter Lucy.
Another highlight piece of the collection is Snoopy wearing a (removable) Charlie Brown mask.
“Growing up, Peanuts was my dad’s favorite, and from the time I could read he gave me his childhood Peanuts books, and the love of it is something we have shared ever since. To be able to make the Peanuts figures I always wanted to have as a child is a dream come true for both of us.” —Brian Flynn, Super7 founder and owner
But if toys aren’t your bag (to which I say, why are you here?) Super7 has your Peanuts needs covered! Also coming in this collection are drinking glasses (want), puffy stickers, puzzles, and pins (also want). This collection was announced by Super7 months ago and it’s so exciting to finally see the love and respectful treatment of this delicate and classic franchise. Really, it’s like The Moomins of American culture. So beautiful and precious. I can’t wait to get my hands on these.
