Super7 Announces Transformers Super Shoguns

Super7 teams up with Hasbro to bring the most popular Japanese giant robots of all time to the Super Shogun format! OPTIMUS PRIME and other Autobots and Decipticons will be realized as jumbo-scaled, 24” tall retro-bot complete with rocket punch! These will be among the largest TRANSFORMER collectibles ever produced!

As part of this multi-year licensing agreement, Super7 will also produce TRANSFORMERS merchandise in a variety of categories, including Designer Japanese Vinyl Figures, retro-themed Glassware, Designer T-Shirts, and Limited Edition Art Prints!

Transformers joins Super7’s line of licenses, following Star Wars, Godzilla, and Alien. The image put out so far is just a teaser, not representative of the final product. But for fans of a certain age, this is a dream come true: Transformers that can battle with other 2-foot-tall Shogun Warrior-sized figures (eat it, Godzilla! EAT FLYING ROBOT FIST OF DEATH!), so keep an eye out for more Super7’s Transformers Super Shogun news.
