Super7 was founded in 2001 by former Nike and Fossil designer Brian Flynn. As a lifelong collector of Star Wars and Kaiju vinyl figures, it was (somewhat) natural for Brian to take his toy interests and meld them with his unique design sensibilities to create a magazine devoted to the obsessive-compulsive world of Japanese toy collecting. The success of the magazine immediately led to collaborations with Japanese manufacturers to release exclusive toys, and evolved over time to us manufacturing our own original creations. To date, we've released over 350 original and exclusive toys by collaborating with Tim Biskup, Gary Baseman, Todd Schorr, and dozens of other renowned artists. First and foremost, our philosophy is to make products -toys, books, magazines, t-shirts, etc- that we would want to own ourselves.
