Each figure has been designed and sculpted by toy industry veteran and historian Jason Geyer aka ToyOtter Toys in collaboration with Fresh Monkey Fiction’s Bill Murphy. These retro-styled action figures have been meticulously created to have the look and feel of arguably the most popular form factor of classic superhero action figures of the 1980’s; it’s the love collectors have for the toys of their childhood – Kenner’s Super Powers and Mattel’s Secret Wars figures, among many more – that made this the perfect form factor to pay homage to with the fan-favorite indie comic characters that we all grew up with.
Pre-Orders for the The Longbox Heroes Collection open at BigBadToyStore.com on July 5, 2022. You can follow the event on Fresh Monkey Fiction, which will close September 5, 2022.
