Here is some news that will make a lot of San Diegans (like myself) very happy! Super7 has just announced they have found a second home in Socal. They will be taking over 5&A Dime’s old Downtown San Diego spot and making it their own. Just like their Haight store in San Francisco, Super7 San Diego will also be carrying clothing, prints, books, magazines and of course toys! S7SD will also be the number one location to get all the ReAction figures you’re ever going to want!

The grand opening will be taking place on Friday the 13th of March (that’s two months in a row!) from 6-10PM. There will be beverages and plenty of people to talk toys with at the event. Be sure to RSVP to the event page HERE and also give them a follow on their Instagram Super7SanDiego.

You may have also noticed us taking a few pictures at both the Hybrid-Design office and Super7 in San Francisco on our Instagram not too long ago. Well that’s because I (Kris) will be the one running the new S7 Store. So if you ever want to talk about toys and art or just want to hang out, stop on by!

Super7 x Astro Mu 5 – Unpainted Black Release (03.06)

11024316_816202371778256_1243575813_n

With only a few days until the release, Super7 has finally graced us with the reveal of their upcoming Astro Mu 5 reissues mini-figures! We have actually just learned that these haven’t been re-sculpted and are from the original molds from the 1970’s. They’ve also made sure that everyone of these figures will be distinct from the originals, so they will not be passed off as a vintage figure. Also, they will not reproduce any of the old colorways, which means new editions from here on out! The first release will be an unpainted black vinyl, which will take place on Friday, March 6th at 12PM PST online and at Super7.

Reactor-88’s Custom Corner: Frank Montano

feastVP4

Welcome to the February edition of Reactor-88's Custom Corner. This month we’re highlighting Frank Montano.

What’s your name?

My name is Frank Montano aka Feast. I'm 24 years-old.

Where are you located?

I was raised in the Bay Area, now currently located in Seattle.

Day job or full-time artist?

I am a part time artist and a full time father.

How long have you been painting toys?

I've been customizing vinyl figures for about three years. The first vinyl figure I was introduced to was a Munny which I sculpted into ironman and was instantly hooked—the rest was history. Most of the customs I make are now focused on my characters I've developed, The BlizzardBeast and DiamondTrooper. "A yeti who has fought for many years to protect its species, land, and riches from the evil spirited DiamondTroopers, who carry the skull of the BlizzardBeast over their heads as protection. A war of good versus evil." haha, well that's the story so far..
