Iron Maiden to Collaborate With Toy Company Super7 at San Francisco Pop-Up Shop
San Francisco-based designer toy and apparel company Super7 have announced a collaboration with Iron Maiden, and fans will have an opportunity to see what the union will produce at a pop-up shop for the band in the Bay Area the first week of July.
"Super7 is honored to announce a special collaborative event with heavy metal legends Iron Maiden and renowned entertainment print company Acme Archives Limited," the company says in a statement. "The Iron Maiden pop-up shop will be at our San Francisco store for one week beginning on Saturday, July 1 through Saturday, July 8."
"The event coincides with the band's Bay Area concert in Oakland at Oracle Arena on July 5. The Iron Maiden pop-up shop will feature official limited edition silkscreen prints from Acme Archives and exclusive Super7 items for sale. There will also be a sneak peek on display of what's coming from Super7 and Iron Maiden later this year," continues the announcement.
Figures.com says one of the upcoming projects is Iron Maiden ReAction figures, which were shown as concept art at Toy Fair. They indicate Eddie the Trooper and Eddie from Killers as being two of the brand new pieces. Here's what the concept art looks like:

In 2001, Super7 started as a magazine about vintage Japanese toys. They took their collective backgrounds in punk and skate ‘zines, design, and production and made the first issue about everything they wished they could find elsewhere. Included in each magazine were mail-in coupons for exclusive recolored toys, allowing the company to create new toys, and both the magazine and toys were eagerly accepted by fans who were missing the same content and product. Last year, Super7 launched new ReAction Figures with characters from Masters of the Universe and Street Fighter. In addition, their existing M.U.S.C.L.E. line was expanded with Alien figures.
Maiden are currently in the midst of “The Book of Souls" world tour, featuring Ghost as openers, with the next show of the trek tomorrow (June 23) in Dallas, Texas at the American Airlines Center. The rest of their dates can be found here.
