Super7 is stoked to announce the addition of Optimus Prime to the Super Shogun world! The original Super7 Shogun made its debut in 2010 with the Super Shogun Stormtrooper. The same design and craftsmanship that made that release legendary is now being applied to the Super Shogun Optimus Prime pre-order!
Jumbo Machinders have been around forever. For me, it was that magical Christmas 1980 where I received the Shogun Warriors Great Mazinger and my life has never been the same. This was the factor that led me down a spiral of robots and Jumbos, as they are called. Super7 led the reemergence for a new wave of modern Super Shoguns Jumbos with Boba Fett and Stormtrooper. That gave us all a taste of the greatness. Mandarake in Japan has been producing some Jumbos since as well. This Optimus Prime gives us what we didn’t know we wanted or had to have, but now that cat is out of the bag and we will never be the same. Mostly, our wallets crying in despair as it is split open and emptied. If Optimus Prime is the first on this new wave of Jumbos what will we get next? I have now made a list of about 12 or so I will need, which will lead to me needing more shelf space, I think.
Get out there and get this!
