Super7’s “The Worst” Animated Series in Development

Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, the award winning animation studio behind “Robot Chicken,” “SuperMansion” starring Bryan Cranston, and the upcoming Netflix series “Buddy Thunderstruck”, and San Francisco based toy and apparel company Super7 announced today at Toy Fair in New York that they are teaming to develop an all new animated television series based on Super7’s popular toy line “The Worst.”

There are good guys. There are bad guys. And then there are…“The Worst”! Created in 2016 as a standalone toy line, “The Worst” began with Super7 looking back historically at their favorite franchises and finding that the best (or worst) characters in any given series were usually the villains. With that in mind, “The Worst” grew into an all new line of characters that were the best of the worst, and became an overnight hit with collectors, immediately selling out limited run action figures within days of release.

In the dead of night, “The Worst” are unleashed! The most villainously vile vermin ever assembled lurk in the shadows and plot their evil deeds. What’s the Worst that could happen? Definitely do not expect them to play nice! “The Worst” are the meanest of the mean and the baddest of the bad – simply put, they are the Worst bad guys ever! Their unholy alliance (all of whom will be title characters in the new animated series) features:

  • Black Falcon – Undead Warlord of Doom
  • Robot Reaper – Robotic Harbinger of Death
  • X-2 the Unknown – Mysterious Shadow Assassin
  • Gas Phantom – Ethereal Specter of Evil
  • Batula – Bat Prince of Darkness
  • Snake Tut – Serpent God of Destruction

Super7 Founder Brian Flynn said, “We are really excited about the opportunity to share ‘The Worst’ ideas we have ever had with the world. Starting with toys, and now moving into animation, we look forward to having worse ideas with even worse partners to create ‘The Worst’ animation ever.”

“Being the nerds of nostalgia that we are, we were all in as soon as we saw the art on the packaging for ‘The Worst’ figures.  What could be better than awesome heavy metal inspired art with action figures that only have 5 points of articulation?  Answer?  A cartoon!” said Stoopid Buddy Stoodios co-founder John Harvatine IV.

Led by founders and partners Seth Green, John Harvatine IV, Matthew Senreich and Eric Towner, Stoopid Buddy Stoodios is well known for its Emmy Award-winning stop motion sketch comedy television series “Robot Chicken” which recently aired its eighth season, created and executive produced by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich along with co-head writers Douglas Goldstein and Tom Root for Adult Swim. The team is currently in production on a new special themed to “The Walking Dead” that will premiere in 2017.

They are also the brains behind Sony Crackle’s hugely successful “SuperMansion” starring Bryan Cranston, Yvette Nicole Brown, Keegan-Michael Key and Chris Pine. Season 2 began streaming on February 16.

Most recently, they were responsible for Netflix’s new stop-motion children’s series “Buddy Thunderstruck” in collaboration with American Greetings Entertainment. The highly anticipated show will begin streaming on March 10.

Aliens ReAction Egg Chamber Playsets Opened Up to the Masses

SDCC 2014 logo bSuper7’s plans for their SDCC exclusive Alien Egg Chamber playset got a ton of attention, with it being an equal mix of excitement for the faux-vintage playset and the other half being disappointment that it was limited to 250 pieces and would be extremely difficult to obtain, even for those attending SDCC. That’s all changed now, as Super7 have announced that, in addition to the 250 pieces at SDCC, they would be opening up pre-orders for a 2nd edition where the only change would be the box color. During comic-con, the Super7 website will be taking pre-orders for the Alien Egg Chamber playset, with it being priced at $100 + $15 shipping. These are being produced, essentially, made to order, and the total edition size will be limited to the orders taken. These are expected to take approximately six months to manufacture, so orders would ship in early 2015, possibly earlier. Pre-orders will be taken at http://www.super7store.com.
