Yesterday, I teased that a “certain villain playset” was discussed by Brain Flynn of Super 7.
I want to elaborate on this, while talking with Brain he stated that he sent Snake mountain to the factory to be priced. Essentially, what will this product cost to be actually made.
~Let me repeat~
This shouldn’t be taken as a confirmation or “IT” will be made. It’s more on the lines of what will it take to make this a reality.
Super 7 are fans and creators who do what they set their collective minds to accomplish. as a fan of what they (Super 7) have done in the past and what they have shown at NYCC. The MOTU property is in great hands.
We hope to get a actual number of questions answered soon so please stick with us and enjoy the ride.
