MAN-E-NEWS// Super7’s officially licensed Astro-Mu 5 reboot announced…


After nearly 8 years on the drawing board, Super7 are proud to reveal that they’ve been given the green-light to bring back Nakajima’s iconic Astro-Mu 5 series! A huge inspiration for some of the most highly sought after sofubi around at the moment – Paul Kaiju’s Mr REE and Ilu Ilu’s Tokio Supernova in particular – the classic 70’s soft vinyl line consisted of a core group of 6 humanoid figures, each coming complete with removable helmets, gloves and boots, and featuring a neat “nodding” function with the press of a button on the chest. Whilst nothing is known about the project apart from the imminent March 6th release date, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that the original 6 will feature in some form or another… Keep track of the Super7 blog here for more details on this long awaited project soon!
