A Japanese toy commercial for Star Wars toys was thought to be lost for thirty years, but has now been found! Okay, not really….but this may be even cooler. We at Super7 produced our own retro-video for the STORMTROOPER SUPER SHOGUN figure, shot in the style of Japanese toy commercials from the 1970s. Using the old videos as our storyboards, a few sparklers, and a lot of effort has resulted in this fun video!
The figure stands a whopping 24 inches tall, and includes all of the features that you expect from an authentic Jumbo: free rotating wheels on the bottom of his feet, and a spring-loaded Rocket Punch firing fist!
Utilizing the same techniques implemented by Japanese toy manufacturers in the 1970s, the Super Shogun is constructed from durable, blow-molded polyethylene with a painted vinyl helmet. The figure is articulated at the neck and shoulders, and includes a removable, highly-detailed BlasTech E-11 laser blaster. The blaster even features a posable stock that unfolds from below the barrel. Collectors of both Japanese and Star Wars memorabilia are sure to be impressed with the care taken to fuse the disparate concepts into a new unique entity.
Packaged in gift box illustrated with iconic graphics from both franchises, each Stormtrooper is individually serial numbered as part of this one time limited edition production run. As a special bonus, metallic foil stickers are included for you to customize the torso with the character name in English or in Japanese.
