Not So Super, Super Powers Superman
Retro is all the rave right now, especially in the world of action figures. Todd McFarlane has taken notice and released his own line of retro themed DC action figures, DC Super Powers! I could do a long winded review on Supes where I harp on about how Super Powers was a line I liked as a kid, gush over the amazing card art and blah, blah, blah but I won't. I will, however, point out the fact that the capes on these figures stink! They blow! Absolute crapola! They look and feel like cheap Dollar Tree Christmas ribbon. I don't get it. Not only that but they decided to fasten the capes to the inside of the packaging with plastic ties that leave a gaping hole. The figure is cool on it's own but, man, Batman and Superman are the two most popular DC characters. Their capes are iconic and should be treated as such. Looks like I might be hopping on eBay to find some customs.

That is really lame about the cape. You'd think that a company like McFarlane would know better than to do something like that.ReplyDelete
The removeable cape was a huge part of what made vintage Super Powers so cool in the first place. A little extra time should have been taken to make sure that wasn't lost in translation.ReplyDelete
I really love the look of this figure inside of the packaging. There was a dealer with a few different characters at the toy show yesterday and I actually considered purchasing a few.ReplyDelete
On card they look awesome, Fuji. I actually hopped online immediately after I posted this and picked up a custom cape for Superman.ReplyDelete
Dang! That ain't cool.ReplyDelete
