Super7 Releases New Universal Monsters Super Soapies in Color
Universal Monsters have been haunting and delighting fans for decades. They have become pop culture icons, coming around each Halloween. Generally, Universal will include the classic monsters in their Halloween Horror Nights events and you can occasionally see the characters wandering around the theme parks. If you’re a fan, you’re in luck because the website Super7 has just released some new bubble bath bottles that are extremely nostalgic and collectible.
Called Super Soapies, the bubble bath products are modeled after bottles in the 1960s. The ones from the ’60s were called Soakys and if you saved yours, you might be able to sell them for a few hundred bucks! First, they released glow-in-the-dark characters including Frankenstein’s Monster, The Wolf Man, Metaluna Mutant, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. After the success of that launch, they released original characters in black and white and added The Bride of Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, and The Mummy. Now, all seven creature Super Soapies are available in color. You can purchase them individually or in a set here.
Universal Classic Monsters are based on the horror films of the 1930s through 1950s featuring the iconic characters. After seeing how popular the characters remained over the years, Universal decided to market them under the collective name and has continuously released merch relating to the characters. Interestingly enough, Dracula seems to be missing from the Super Soapies characters even though he is one of the most beloved characters.
In addition to Halloween Horror Nights, merchandise, and characters walking around the parks, Universal Orlando has a Horror Make-Up Show. The live show began in 1990 and still shares behind-the-scenes looks at the makeup and stunts used in the real films. The lobby and waiting area for the show feature displays about the Universal Classic Monsters as well as other horror films and franchises.
The Super Soapies are so cool! You can also use them to make bubbles or simply collect them all for decor. Which one would you most like to purchase?
