Kenner Super Powers Collection All things Super Powers...
Posted 09 February 2013 - 12:39 PM
I just amassed a nice collection of Kenner Super Powers figures/vehicles/etc. I was 7-8 years old when this line came out and I always loved it. However, I never had any of them except for Superman. I was already devoted to MOTU at the time and I was loyal to it and it alone. But I had to at least have Superman. In recent years I've been keeping a close eye on loose/complete figures on ebay, but never dropped the hammer on going full speed ahead with collecting them. Now, within a months time, I dropped quite a few bucks on this collection and have just about everything that came out except for the Justce Jogger... which I will pick up at some point. I absolutely love this collection. It is colorful and really was a fantastic, nicely sculpted line. Too bad it only lasted about 3 years because there was a wide selection of characters they could have made, ultimately accumulating as many figures as vintage Star Wars if given the chance..

I have in recent years thought about starting a collection, but there's just been so much stuff out, I can't afford it all, so unfortunatley Super Powers was always put on the back-burner.

LOL! That is a true WTF? moment right there. I've been searching daily on ebay for Super Powers stuff and never saw anything like that. Are these people serious? LOL!
What's even funnier is this was AFA graded. HA!

I love this line, Loved it as a kid. I now make customs from time to time of Marvel Super Heroes, to improve on their sometimes poor paint apps. Parts of the Marvel Super Heroes lines go very well with Super Powers (ie, Thor, Iron Man, Thing, Hulk). I'm going to fill out the rest of the classic Avengers line up with Super Powers parts.
Some great additions to the Super Powers line are the 89 Batcave, Batcycle, Joker Van, Two Face, Bob the Goon (repaint purple), and Joker Cycle. I repainted the Dark Knight collection Bat Jet and Penquin plane to reflect Super Powers Colors.
Display looks great, just watch the dust!
