Wow! Way cool!

Probably a dumb question … but did this start because G.A. is your favorite character? Have you also got an exhaustive G.A. collection beyond Super Powers? Is there any G.A. Super Powers item missing from your collection?

He is indeed my favorite, stems back from loving archery when I was a child. I do have a decent non SP Green Arrow collection. Mixed and displayed with my loose SP GA pieces. I'm really picky with the pieces I acquire and all the GA items must be in this outfit as I can't stand the red gloves and boots outfit.

I also have this GA print.

This is the only MOC item that I need to complete the run. Made by Estrela in Brazil.

Thanks for the comments Daniel and Dan!!

Blasphemy! I love that GA/SA outfit in all it's bland hokeyness!

Outstanding collection, though! :D

My latest Super Powers acquisition:

It fits in with both my Super Powers collection and my Aquaman shelf.

I was just thinking how awesome it would be if Hasbro got the rights to the DCU characters again. Then they can release a Super Powers 30th Anniversary line under the Kenner name, which would include newly sculpted figures from the proposed 4th wave among other additions. The style of the figures would be exactly the same as they were 30 years ago, same size, same detail, and soft goods! Same blister style art with Garcia Lopez character designs. At the same time re-release the original main characters, but with variations. Off course the gold Superman, Batman in a different color combo, Nightwing instead of Robin, etc... I'm sure they can dig up some old vehicle molds from other lines and make them part of the NEW Super Powers line. Not only would this be just a fun collection, but those of us who have the vintage line can add these to the ranks! Instead of 34 figures, we can have 50. :)

This idea has probably come up already, I can't be the only one who thought of this.

Dan, where did you find that?

I hate bootlegs, but I'd definitely buy that!

Few years ago I ran into a guy who happened to travel to Mexico a lot for work. I can't remember how far back it goes but he started picking up these bootlegs cause he thought they were wacky. I was able to get a few from him, including this Green Arrow.

Ouch. It seems like it would be hard to shoot your bow with both arms on the same side of your body.

Checkout 4:11. This is how Green Arrow would only use one arm.
