Super7, makers of collectible toys and apparel, heads to the funny pages with the debut of its new Peanuts collection at SDCC. Known for taking well loved entertainment properties from the past and putting a new, modern spin on them, Super7 has done it again with the beloved comic strip Peanuts and focusing on the more stylized 1950’s characters from the launch of the strip.
Return to the good ol’ days of Peanuts at the exclusive Good Grief, a Super7 x Peanuts Gift Shop, showcased at the Super7 San Diego store.This once in a year/lifetime/Comic Con exclusive event will take place Friday through Sunday July 19-21, 2019, 11:00am-9:00pm (Fri-Sat) and11:00am-5:00pm (Sun) at 701 Eighth Ave, San Diego, CA 92101.
This collection’s signature piece, the Good Ol’ Charlie Brown 3.75” ReAction Figure showcases Charlie Brown as he appeared in the very first Peanuts newspaper strip from October 2nd, 1950. Standing by Good Ol’ Charlie Brown’s side will be a life-size 16” Snoopy vinyl figure featuring a teasing Snoopy, complete with a removable Charlie Brown Mask and fabric shirt, as he was seen in the Oct 23, 1953 strip. Six additional 3.75” ReAction figures join in on the fun, including Cowboy Charlie Brown, Racoon Hat Snoopy, PJ Sally, Baseball Schroeder, Pirate Linus and Winter Lucy.
“Growing up, Peanuts was my dad’s favorite, and from the time I could read he gave me his childhood Peanuts books, and the love of it is something we have shared ever since.
To be able to make the Peanuts figures I always wanted to have as a child is a dream come true for both of us.” explains Brian Flynn, Super7 founder and owner.
Alongside the classic figures are a capsule of perfectly unexpected, limited edition apparel and other accessories like puzzles, enamel pins, glassware, puffy stickers and more reflecting the more downtrodden and melancholy side of Peanuts.

Ill definitely be swinging by their Pop up shop that Friday and picking up all the figures. Im not 100% certain about the 16 vinyl though so Ill have to make that decision once I see the price and see it in person. Looking forward to seeing how they deck out the place this year.
That Snoopy mask figure is very cool. If these are early Peanuts comic strips that's very interesting to me. I've never seen Peanuts drawn like this, but they're interesting to see for sure.I don't see myself buying these, I'm not sure the figures are all that special and the cardback is all that cool to justify a purchase, but I'm not a big Peanuts fan either. Fun idea though.
I was looking forward to the Peanuts reveals. Not disappointed, love that these are stylized after their '50's comic strips, will get all the Re Actions here. Glad Super7 is releasing these!
