Super7® Ghost – Papa Emeritus III ReAction Figure
LOS ANGELES, CA., August 12, 2019 - Global Merchandising Services and Super7 have collaborated to create a 3.75” ReAction figure for the Swedish metal band Ghost. The figure is based on the character of the sinister pope, Papa Emeritus III, who was the front man on Ghost’s third album Meloria. This ReAction figure embodies the dark themes and ominous charm of the original pontiff and will be available to the clergy in the coming weeks. The figure will also be available through select independent retail stores.

As is with all things Ghost, Papa Emeritus III is a creation from the band’s satanic mastermind, Tobias Forge, the singer, songwriter, musician and architect of the elaborate storylines that are woven through the band’s four full-length studio albums, EPs, music videos, webisodes and live shows, all of which advance the Ghost storyline. The band’s current album Prequelle, yielded three Top 10 Rock tracks - “Rats,“ "Dance Macabre,” (both of which went to #1), and “Faith.” Ghost has received three GRAMMY nominations: "Best Metal Performance" in 2016 for "Cirice," which the band won, and "Best Rock Album" for Prequelle and "Best Rock Song" for "Rats" in 2019.
