Another one we saw at Toy Fair which we are now getting an official image for is Super 7's Conan the Barbarian Deluxe 7" figure. Charging off the pages of the original comics from the 1970's is the Conan the Barbarian.

Conan comes with spear, sword, dagger, and necklace accessories plus an alternate head. The Conan the Barbarian Deluxe Figure is a 7" tall, highly articulated and fully poseable action figure sculpted by the Four Horsemen. Packaging will be posted and shared when finalized. The Conan Deluxe Figure is a made-to-order release for $35 each (plus shipping). This pre-order is open until March 31, 2019 with shipping in Summer 2019.

Uh dude, I think I'm regretting not having ordered this figure during the pre-order tume, BBTS still have it but 50 bucks is more than I would like to pay. But why they keep recycling that old MOTUC male buck?!.

Im still really hoping to see a packaged pic of this before the preorder closes so I can know rather to get 1 or 2 to keep one in package.

IDK, my impression when I heard about these was that they would be more muscular like He-Man figures. I don't know if they will be based on something specific like cartoon, comic or movie or if they will be artist interpretation figures. I'm guessing the Four Horsemen will be working on them so they have potential to be good.

This has been my thought as well. All the propertiesweve been shown from Super7 in this style Ive been interested in but with TMNT Im really wondering if there will be enough differentiation to justify them.

Ive got the 1990 movie figures and those are the ones Ive always wanted. Im set.

Figure looks great -I just wish he had a head with no helmet.

Id really like to see what this figure is supposed to look like in packaging. If it were cool I might want to preorder two to have loose and packaged.

Curious how they will differ from the Neca ones.

Im more than aware hes a public domain character, but the guys at Super 7 have indicated specifically this is from the 70s Marvel book.

They may well have indicated that (and having gone back to look at the art, I do see that he is indeed the '70s Marvel Conan:the helmet, the sandals, the bracelets, the weapons, and particularlythe medals on his necklace, are all super distinctive and identical),but unless he's specifically marketed as such (say, with the Marvel logo on the package, which I'm CERTAIN Super7 WON'T be adding), public domain rules still likely apply.Because it's still a very generic barbarian design and Conan is still public domain, Super7 could play dumb by essentially claiming coincidence, and at most, they wouldn't be barred from making the toy, they'd just have to retool minor elements (most likely JUST the necklace medallions, as the only truly unique elements on the toy . . . and even THEN, both Frazetta and Vallejo have painted the character with very similar medals). It wouldn't be worth the cost of filing the lawsuit against Super7 just to minorly inconvenience them into releasing a MORE generic version of the character, basically resulting in no loss of profits on Super7's part, while Hasbro would eat the cost of the filing itself.Additionally, though Hasbro is the master toy licensee, they may not have the authority to call out Super7 on using the design. If my understanding of the trademark/copyright/visual depiction laws are correct, only the licensor has that authority, meaning Marvel and Disney, and they may not care enough, or they may see the legal battle as a waste of time and money (as mentioned above). And especially, becauseHasbro is of course still totally allowed to release their own, officially branded Marvel version of Conan, they don't really have a leg to stand on from the position of lost profits or copyright claims.I am a tad more surprised that Super7 is so brazenly duping a specific depiction of Conan (and one owned by one of the most massive copyright juggernauts in all the world, no less), but recallingthe "Universal Vs Nintendo - Donkey Kong" epic fail by Hollywood . . . I could totally see Disney taking a pass on even bothering with this little jab. I won't claim to be a legalexpert, but it makes sense.

Isn't the general design of this buck 10 years old now? I think he looks good, but it would be nice if Super7 started reworking the general buck they use.I guess it's a bit too much to ask, but it would be cool if be came with an unhelmeted head.

I appreciate what they've done here in terms of basing the figure off of a legendary comic book cover-- and artist (Barry Windsor-Smith). But, if that was the direction they were going to go in, I would have preferred a Conan based on John Bucema's art. To me, he's more closely associated to the character than BWS. Plus, I kinda like his version better.
