Top 10: Figures for Super7’s SilverHawks Ultimates by Jerry Whitworth
At the start of the year, Super7 announced it acquired the license to produce merchandise based on the SilverHawks brand and recently released images for their first action figures. SilverHawks Ultimates arrives in Spring 2022 and will initially include Quicksilver, Steelheart, Buzz-Saw, and Mon*Star. Following the success of ThunderCats, SilverHawks featured the adventures of Earth-born cyborg peacekeepers in the 29th century known as the SilverHawks as they battled the Mon*Star Gang in the galaxy of Limbo. Airing for one season of 65 episodes in 1986 with a toyline from Kenner the following year, SilverHawks emerged at a time when the action figure market collapsed under its own weight as the likes of G.I. Joe, Masters of the Universe, and Transformers struggled on store shelves. Super7 previously acquired the license to produce ThunderCats merchandise including an Ultimates line with four waves thus far (with a Thundertank coming in Winter 2022) and a ReAction line with two waves. Only time will tell if TigerSharks is in the future. Lets take a look at what figures could emerge in future waves of SilverHawks Ultimates.
