Friends, for one of the hardest classic video games ever made – it’s hard to top Capcom’s Ghosts ‘n Goblins. Whether that be when it hit the arcades back in 1985 or it’s numerous home ports to the likes of the Commodore 64 to the Nintendo Entertainment System and even the Playstation 2. Ghosts ‘n Goblins while being an incredibly popular game series and fantastic game… it’s been known to make many a player throw up their hands and walk away – or spike a game controller onto the floor in the process. Well, it seems that starting on Wednesday the 23rd of January at the strike of 12 Noon PST – Super7 is unleashing two special 3-packs of Ghosts ‘n Goblins figures!
Super7 has definitely made a name for themselves over the years, beginning back in 2010 when they created the Super Shogun Stormtrooper. Tickling the fancy of not just Star Wars fans but all of us devotees to the Shogun Warriors line by Mattel from the 70’s. That was just the beginning though for the toy company as in 2013 they released their first set of ReAction figures – toys designed to look like they had been plucked from the past and their first set was the cancelled 1979 Alien action figures!
They didn’t stop there either as Super7 released all manner of ReAction figures for all manner of franchises. The Universal Monsters, The Goonies, Firefly, Masters of the Universe, Flash Gordon, The Misfits, Planet of the Apes and so many more. To say nothing of their Club Grayskull offerings which instead of the ReAction 3.75″ line is a more detailed 7-inch line of figures – with Wave 4 consisting of Prince Adam, Roboto, Shadow Weaver, Modulok, Kittrina, and freaking Stratos!
For what it’s worth, Super7 has in fact already released one figure in their Ghosts ‘n Goblins ReAction. That is the brave Arthur in his golden magical armor – this figure was originally created for 2018’s designer con (Dcon).
As for what the 3-pack Ghosts ‘n Goblins will include – the first one features the villainous Astaroth, Arthur in his grey armor, and a zombie.
The second pack includes one of the deadly Unicorn’s, Arthur in his underwear (when he loses his armor in the game he must fight on in only his undies), and one of the dastardly skeletons.
I assume that on January 23rd at 12 Noon PST – these packs can be found on the official Super7 site. Just in case make sure to follow their Twitter feed for up to the minute announcements on their many brands.
