In blind box figures, you never know which of a set you’ll receive until you open it. The “chase” is the rarest, and usually a secret. You just get the outline of the toy on the box, with black innards and a question mark. A super chase? An even more rare figure, the kind of elusive quarry you could open countless boxes before finding.
So in geek life, Superchase is about seeking a mystery; something we desperately want even though we’re not sure what it is, and even though we may never find it…but we find so much while we’re searching.
About the Author
My first memory is of Star Trek. I was a geek before I knew what it was (besides everyone at school making fun of your Star Wars lunchbox), and certainly before it was cool. I’ve gone from one fandom to another for years and at least dabbled in nearly every possible geeky outlet, from cosplay, to customizing Asian ball-jointed dolls, to Alternate Reality Games. I’m proud of how far the geek community has come in recent years, and hope it continues to welcome new people to the fold. It’s all about passion, and passion is the only thing that makes life worthwhile.
