Super7 is expanding its license with Hasbro, Inc. on an incredible fan favorite: Super Shogun TRANSFORMERS Optimus Prime! This oversized figure is available for preorder only, and exclusively at select partner retailers, including iconic toy retailer FAO Schwarz. Super Shogun TRANSFORMERS Optimus Prime retails for $350 (including shipping), and is available for preorder, launching Friday, Feb 21, available through Mar 31.  

 

Super Shogun TRANSFORMERS Optimus Prime is a 24″ tall figure based on the vintage Jumbo Machinder and Shogun figures. These Japanese figures are some of the most expensive vintage toys that collectors covet, with almost 50 different figures originally made in Japan. The Super Shogun TRANSFORMERS Optimus Prime is a nod to these amazing toys and a throwback to the very first toy Super7 made for the US market- a Super Shogun Stormtrooper in 2010. In a homage to its origins, this Friday, Super7 will exclusively launch its first Super Shogun since 2013, the Super Shogun TRANSFORMERS Optimus Prime.
