    Super7 celebrates their first collaboration with Lucasfilm with a special release party for the STAR WARS: STORMTROOPER SUPER SHOGUN.

    When: Saturday June 12th, doors open at 6:00 PM
    Where: Super7 Store, 1628 Post Street, San Francisco, CA 94115

    Available at retail for the first time ever, the Super Shogun is a Limited Edition of only 1200 pieces. This is a one-time production with each Stormtrooper has been hand numbered on the base of the foot with a unique serial number. Be sure to arrive early, as the first 100 people through the door will be given a unique Star Wars themed collectible, which will act as your raffle ticket. A random drawing later in the evening will award a prize package including one of the Super Shogun figures.

    Similar to how the toy itself combines the themes of Star Wars and Japanese Super Robots, Super7 will have an exhibition of rare vintage toys from both franchises on display. Original Kenner Star Wars action figures, including rare items such as figures with early "telescoping" lightsabers, will be shown from the personal collection of Super7's Brian Flynn.

    Also to be shown will be Erik Sjoen's (toyboxdx.com) personal collection of vintage Japanese Jumbo Machinders. The two-foot tall giants will take up a large amount of the exhbit space with over 20 different robots featured, from the popular Raideen and Grendizer, to the more obscure Capsule Robo G and Giant Gorg.

    The final part of the exhibit will be dedicated to the "making of" the Super Shogun itself, as Super7 presents various stages of the production never before seen, including design sketches, original sculpts, and various mold tests.

    Aside from our Jumbo figure, actual Stormtroopers themselves will be on-hand at the party. Security at the event will be provided by the Golden Gate Garrison of the 501st Legion, to ensure that any rebel scum is dealt with accordingly.

    A similar bash will be held at Super7 Florida:

    When: Saturday June 12th, doors open at 5:00 PM EST
    Where: Super7, 720 2nd Street North, Saint Petersburg, Florida 33701
