We are. That's why these are boutique figures.

I like the sculpt on this figure, they've somehow captured the look of the bulky suits in the movie while also remaining true to the style and articulation of classic 3 3/4 figures.

Yeah, I'm always surprised how many more cool things the US TRU's have compared to the Canadian ones.

Not too much US superhero stuff, but once in awhile they carry something especially cool, I remember loading up on TRU exclusive X-Plus Harryhausen vinyls nearly 10 years ago.
Canadian TRU's are really kind of sucky in comparison though. But better than nothing I guess.

This just came out... it would be kind of cool to see what's inside. Transformers and Barbie on the cover.
It's my understanding that these will be available wholesale via Diamond and, if toys r us were interested, they too could rack them. These aren't reproductions of the prototypes, they will be production figures, as if they had been released in '79. Think of it as righting an injustice. ;-)
Anyone hear any updates about these?
Yeah, Frank from Super 7 emailed me last month and told me they were on track for the summer I believe. The glasses should be here sooner.
The prototypes of the glasses will be on display at WonderCon in Anaheim later this month. I'm excited about all of it!
