Super7 Issue 16: International Toy Pirates
The term ?mook? has long been used to describe printed material that is neither a book, nor a magazine, but the ultimate fusion of the two. Super 7 has elevated this form to the highest possible pinnacle with the new redesign of their magazine. Elegant to the extreme in a slip cased black and silver Flexi-bound, this beautifully designed and immaculately photographed title is a museum quality ?catalogue? for collectors, aficionados or self proclaimed 'toy geeks?. Super 7 - International Toy Pirates takes you on a nostalgic journey to the endless days of youth and summers spent watching Godzilla, Mothra and Rodan battle for world supremacy.
With long form photo essays on the original Marusan and Bullmark Toho (Godzilla) series figures from 1966-1974, Nakajima's highly influential yet obscure Astro-Mu Five, the founder of the fight figure format, Tokyo's Secret Base, and fan favorite RealxHead, as well as collector spotlights, interviews with Neighborhood's Shinsuke Takizawa, artwork from classic packaging and header cards, as well as articles, checklists, interviews and in-depth analysis of the toy scene as a whole, no one covers toys quite like Super7. Super7 the Book sets the bar for all other toy books to live up to... if they can.
Dimensions: 7" x 9" (inches)
