Super 7, maker of action figures for adult collectors continues to kill the game with today's announcement of Eric B. & Rakim figures to be released this spring, and Biz Markie figures this summer.
Although the late Biz Markie, an avid toy collector himself who owned a separate home just for his collection already has dolls, alarm clocks and other toys made in his likeness, this will be a first for Eric B. & Rakim. Ironically, Biz and Rakim were partners in a Long Island rap group at Wyandanch High School before either made records, back when Rakim went by the name "Kid Wiz."
Super 7 has released figures of Hip-Hop icons Grandmaster Flash, The Notorious B.I.G., The RZA, Run The Jewels, Run-D.M.C., The Beastie Boys and most recently Slick Rick The Ruler. According to pre-order information, the Eric B & Rakim set contains 3.75-inch figures with 5 points of articulation, blister card packaging, and full figure card art. The price tag for the set is $39.99. No pre-order information is available for the Biz Markie figure.
