As our crew of Dune Talk regulars gradually return from summertime leaves, we’re excited to bring you a special show—our first episode focusing on collectibles and toys—covering those new retro-style Dune ReAction Figures. We’re welcoming Josh Herbolsheimer, VP of Design at Super7, to get all the details on their first wave of toys inspired by 1984’s Dune movie.
During the interview we see several behind-the-scenes photos, including concepts and molds, from the creation of these Dune ReAction Figures. In addition to asking Josh about Super7’s creative process and what’s coming next in this product line, discussion flows into the pop-culture design house’s other projects and how they engage with collectors / fans.
This podcast (37 minutes) is available below in both video and audio formats. Enjoy and spread the word to fellow Dune fans!
