What is steel compared to the hand that wields it?
Earlier this week Super 7 teased that they have plans to release more figures in their Conan The Barbarian Ultimates line. With a teaser image of Thulsa Doom’s snake form. Now they have officially revealed the figures that will be in Wave 3 which are War Paint Conan and Thulsa Doom (Demigod Serpent)
I know that I really haven’t talked about the Super 7 Conan The Barbarian Ultimates line before. I have to say I really like that there is a Conan The Barbarian line of toys it’s just that they are too expensive for me to collect. Especially here in the UK where they cost around £60-£100 for Super 7 Ultimate figures which is pretty much out of my price range. The only other gripe that I have with these figures is that the biceps on the Conan figures look incredibly big and don’t look to scale.
Other than that I think the figures look fantastic with great sculpts and plenty of accessories. I’m a massive fan of Conan The Barbarian and I am very pleased to see that Super 7 is doing a War Paint Conan as that’s one of my favorite looks of is in the film. Also, I’m still after the NECA version which came out years ago and it’s a grail item of mine!
The likeness to Arnold is pretty darn good and I love that he comes with multiple sets of hands so you can get him in a variety of poses. The Atlantean Sword looks very well detailed too and it’s got some blood on it which looks very well done and the inclusion of the sheath is a great added touch. The only accessory that I feel they could have included with this figure is an interchangeable head with a wide-eyed expression from this scene.
I didn’t expect Super 7 to release another Thulsa Doom figure but I am very happy that they are. This one is based on his transformation scene. The soft-goods robe looks really good and the likeness to James Earl Jones looks great on the Thulsa Doom head and the interchangeable Snakehead looks fantastic. Also, he comes with a snake, interchangeable hands, a bow, a snake arrow, and a dagger.
These figures will be released in the Fall of this year and the second wave will be released soon!
Here’s the official press release from Super 7 and a pre-order link for the figures from the Super 7 Store!
