The Blot almost woke up my sleeping kids last night when I freaking squealed like a little girl after randomly visiting Super7’s online store and noticing they’d posted the all new Star Wars “Empire Version” Boba Fett Super Shogun vinyl figure!!! I’ve been waiting years for this figure to finally be released to the general public and it happened this week. Thank you Super7 and Funko, who have teamed up to release this perfect mash-up of Star Wars and Jumbo Machinder toys (marketed in the US as Shogun Warriors).
The Star Wars “Empire Version” Boba Fett Super Shogun features a color scheme based on the character’s appearance in Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and stands a whopping 24” tall! Each figure includes all of the features that you’d expect from an authentic Jumbo: free rotating wheels on the bottom of his feet, spring-loaded missile firing jetpack and wrist launcher, and comes with metallic foil stickers. Utilizing the same techniques implemented by Japanese toy manufacturers in the 1970s, this Star Wars Super Shogun is constructed from durable, blow-molded polyethylene with a painted vinyl helmet. I cannot wait to get my hands on this release!
