When Robert Kirkman created and wrote Super Dinosaur, his all-ages comic book series for Image Comics and his Skybound Imprint there, he and artist Jason Howard never imagined the characters would join the Hula Hoop and the Original Frisbee Disc as iconic American toys from Wham-O but are thrilled to announce that's exactly what is happening. This November, Wham-O will bring the Super Dinosaur Air Thunder and the Super Dinosaur Air Tube, featuring Super Dinosaur and Derek Dynamo decked out in their winter gear, to all major sporting goods and department stores.
Robert Kirkman said, “It's a tremendous honor to be working with Wham-O on bringing Super Dinosaur to the masses! They've been making the coolest toys for years and now they're working with the coolest concept ever ... a cool kid who teams up with his best friend, a dinosaur with robotic arms, to save the world! Who wouldn't want a sled with Super Dinosaur on it?!”
Kyle Aguilar, CEO of Wham-O, stated, "We are thrilled to partner with Skybound and offer Super Dinosaur licensed items to US consumers. We believe these items will have tremendous success and will bring the Super Dinosaur characters to life on the slopes this winter."
The Super Dinosaur Air Thunder will have an MSRP of only $24.99 and the Super Dinosaur Air Tube will retail for only $9.99.
