"We grew up with giant monsters, comic books, punk, science fiction, skateboarding, robots & rebellion. No one made want we wanted," lamented Super7. "So we made it ourselves." And that's exactly what they've done for eleven years now, produced the coolest toys that fans could ask for. As is deserving for such an amazing company, Super7 are planning to make their presence at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con truly epic: free trading cards, 14 exclusive vinyl toy releases, custom made figures, prizes with random purchases, and so much more.
The first ever Super7 Trading Card Series is set to be released at SDCC and every purchase from Super7's Booth #4729 will come with a free pack of these beauties. Each pack of eight old-school style chipboard cards comes packaged in a wax wrapper and the cards themselves feature brand new illustrations and images from Joshua Herbolsheimer, Invisible Creature, Matthew Allison and many more of the Super7 regulars. In fact, each and every one of the 14 exclusive releases for SDCC will come with a trading card representative of that release which isn't available in the wax packs.

"After an untimely meteor ended his rampage much too early, this deadly dino sunk deep into the Earth and was reborn in modern day as the unstoppable FOSSILLA! His flesh may have “crudely” sloughed from his (now exposed) bones and metamorphosed to a disgusting oily goop, but somewhere in that slop are feet that have been waiting millions of years to stomp on buildings." This debut version of Joshua Herbolsheimer's Fossilla stands 9" tall and is articulated on the head, arms and legs. Cast is unpainted grey vinyl, this toy even comes with a bonus "anatomy lesson" backing card.
