Well, sadly we’ve come to the final day of "Impromptu Super Powers Gallery Week." However, there’s something extra-special for you today…two rare figures that (as far as I know) don’t exist in online image form at any site other than right here. The Lily Ledy company out of Mexico produced the "Super Podores" line…and yet the Wonder Woman is the only one to surface carded so far. It’s a pretty bizarre circumstance since they obviously produced other figures, and loose examples of those have turned up. The Wonder Woman also has a variant that exists to the card back, with one version having a "guarantee" of some sort in a text block while the other one does not have it at all. Both card backs are pictured here. I’ve also included pictures of some Lily Ledy "overstock parts" which were apparently part of a huge find a few years back of mostly Star Wars pieces. I only have heads of Flash & Wonder Woman, but I’ve got some Batman torsos, Joker legs, Flash legs, and generally other body pieces you’d only find in a morgue.
Nibo (country unknown by me, but looks to be Latin American in origin) is in the same boat. From the back of the card they obviously produced quite a few figures, yet The Penguin is the only character to have shown up through all the years people have collected Super Powers. Odd, odd, and yes…quite odd. The Nibo line is also unique in that there is no character artwork on the front of the card, and the back of the card is in black & white (or grey, technically).
Finally, because it’s on a bi-lingual Canadian card and fits the "theme" of the week, I included a new picture of my Plastic Man carded sample that I highlighted in a previous blog. To the photos!
Thanks for visiting all this week, and I hope y’all have enjoyed everything I’ve shown. It’s been fun!
