Super7 Teasing G.I. Joe Cobra Mothership For October 2023

Super 7 really needs to evaluate their pricing. This was seen as "well thats not gonna be funded" almost instantly and unanimously.

You cant make SO many largely niche figures and sell them for 55 USD each; including Snarf FFS or ask 100 dollars more than the frigging HasLab HISS tank for this ship and expect success.  EE just cleared.out wave 1 of GI Joe Ultimates for the price of a single figure. BBTS had that huge Ultimates sale -and it will happen again I am sure.

I dont know their books and overhead but I know if I am a retailer trying to clear out your products I throttle my future orders.

Well said. Nothing further to add

There are quite a few Ultimates that I would be interested in, but yeah at the $55 a pop price point, that's gonna be a no from me. Especially when you got companies like NECA who can make a far more detailed and realistic looking 7" figure at $30/ea. Sorry but S7's Star Trek and Power Rangers (for example) look way too cartoony.

I dont think Neca's 7inch figures have been $30 for a while now.

You are correct from my observation. Most Neca stuff is at least $35+, and the fact that it hardly ever, if at all, gets marked down makes it difficult to get them for less than that outside of maybe ebay. Still better than $55 though, which I think was the point of the original comment, I believe.

I did not realize this was a crowd funding campaign. I was under the impression that this was something that Super7 was  just going to release. That said, I haven’t paid much attention to it since I don’t really collect the O ring or 3.75 inch Joes. I know a lot of people still like small scale stuff, bit I’m not one of them.

Figure listings popped up over the weekend from the Target system for Super7's first wave of recently announced G.I. Joe O-ring 4" figures. The figures coming that were listed include the following:

G.I. Joe Snake Eyes Comic O-Ring - 087-26-2539
G.I. Joe Duke Cartoon O-Ring - 087-26-2825
G.I. Joe Ramar Cartoon O-Ring - 087-26-0778
G.I. Joe Cover Girl Blonde Cartoon O-Ring - 087-26-9142

 
 


For those now familiar, Ramar was a Cobra slave in the first G.I. Joe M.A.S.S. Device cartoon mini-series voiced by non-other than Optimus Prime himself Peter Cullen.
