I apologize ahead of time if the pictures are too big. Not very technical savy

Pretty awesome stuff there. I absolutely love the Bowen Thanos statue...one of the best he's ever done.

Peace,

Chip

Do you have pictures of your collection online? I'd like to see it if you do.

Peace,

Chip


Unfortunately I am currently going through a divorce and no longer "own" my computer with all the pictures stored on it.
I did have an entire US carded and Professionaly encased collection and an entire Loose mint collection. I also had over 60 customs to display along with the loose figures.

Our very own Julius Marx owns a ton of my customs now:)

I'll see what pics I have on Photobucket.

Very sorry to hear this, man. I get destroyed over short relationships...I can only imagine what you're going thru.

Best of luck.

Peace,

Yes, you can certainly post pictures.

I believe there's a Super Powers thread, but since this is the most activity the Vintage Forum here has seen in months feel free to start a new thread.

Peace,

Chip


went to the Superpowers thread, but most of the pictures have been removed. Just wanted to see how they looked displayed.

Yea, I noticed that the first pages goes back almost two years. Gonna have to fix that somehow. ;)

sorry to hear that. Im married and have already told my wife, I will never marry again. Cant afford to. and if it didnt work once, why try it again?

Best of luck to you sir.

BTW, I noticed the cyborg in your avatar, there was one loose on ebay with a BIN of $12. Looked pretty real. just thought I would pass it along since you collect loose

Yeah it's been rough:( It really stinks losing basically everything I have ever worked for. Including my collections.

Come February though I will be joining you on Ebay Chip! I plan on getting me an entire loose and carded collection again.


Here is all I could find for pics. Nothing special.

Tho I'm sure Roadhouse has a complete loose set already, the one on eBay is actually a DC Universe Classics loose figure, and not a Super Powers figure. That's why it's still available at $11.95 BiN. :D

Peace,

Chip

And I have given them all a very good home. They are proudly on display in my living room. You can come visit them any time you like.

I'll try to take some pictures tonight and put'em up in my blog.

Sorry to hear about your divorce Roadhouse. I've been there and done that and it blows!

Ive been reading the kennersuperpowers.com website as well. They mention that a whole line was made by the Toy Werks company.


I've been wondering about this, since I can't find anything about Toy Werks on Mike's site...which is good, since Toy Werks creates crappy customs and Mike's site only has to do with legit production stuff here and in foreign countries.

Then I came across this on the Wikipedia page :

Quote:
Several figures have appeared on the collectors market with European origins from Industrial Toy Werks including the Wonder Twins, Mirror Master, and Black Adam, among others. Although none of these figures are official to the Kenner line, they have been known to sell at very high prices.[citation needed]


Sounds like a deliberate plant by the creator of those figures to drum up interest & sales. That info should NOT be on the Super Powers page anywhere.

How do we get that crap off the Wiki page?

Nothing on Pacipa, Play Ful, Gulliver, Estrela, etc, but instead there's stuff about this guy's crappy customs? What BS.

Peace,

Chip

I saw that and thought the EXACT same thing - that wasn't on that page before. That garbage needs to be taken off before more people get duped by these terrible customs. :?

Bullsh*t on that noise.

Chip, you should sign up for a Wiki account and add all that info you've been discovering to the SP page. I need to add a few things myself, and add the article I did for BackIssue as a citation.
