In 2001, Super7 started as a magazine about vintage Japanese toys. Building off of their success with the magazine and early recolor toys, they opened their first store in the Japantown district of San Francisco in 2004 to carry not just their toys, but everything else that they wanted beyond the toys—t-shirts, posters, books and more. Along the way, Super7 began to develop more and more new vinyl figures and toy projects.

In 2016, they launched new ReAction Figures with characters from Masters of the Universe and Street Fighter. In addition, the M.U.S.C.L.E. line was expanded with Alien figures. As the year closed, Super7 also brought the ReAction Figure line back in-house and all design, manufacturing, and distribution for ReAction will be done by us moving forward. At the beginning of 2017, after 6 great years, the Super7 San Francisco store relocated from the Haight / Ashbury to the lively and bustling Mission District.
