Figured I'd kick things off a little early with some new collection shots! I'll post more after the 1st of the year. Enjoy!

Yes, the rumors are true...the collection is creeping out into the living room!

Image

To the left of the couch is the display of proof cards, cromalins, and the Brainiac focus.

Image

Image

Image

To the right of the couch are the 33-back proofs, production re-releases and carded samples.

Image

The smaller bookcase in the bedroom.

Image

Supermobiles from Brazil, Argentina, and Canada.

Image

Neat stuff and lots of heads!

Image

The first twelve.

Image

VHS and one lone Betamax. :)

Image

Random SP/DCUC pairings.

Image

More SP/DCUC in front of a logo concept backdrop.

Image

A true rarity...the Canada Fancy French Fries package. It was the only way to get Clark Kent in Canada!

Image

The bottom two shelves here are all bootlegs from China and Mexico.

Image

Here you can see the three figurine paint sets on the bottom as well as the Batman & Robin bop bag and Superman & Darkseid wind sock on the right.

Image

The newest rarities : Superman jointed figure and carded Supergirl & Batman flavored lip balms. :D

Image

More to come after the 1st of the year!

Peace,

Chip

Not really vintage... but I would think they would be considered a Super Powers purchase.... but not really a purchase either as "Santa" brought them. I didn't know that there were heroes on the other shoe. On the website it just showed the villains shoe.

Those shoes are very cool, Dan. From where did you order them?

And Chip, you know I always enjoy seeing photos of your collection. It just gets better and better. Do you have everything displayed, or is there some you didn't show?

I've listed some Super Powers-related items for sale in the Swap Meet. Of interest are carded Super Powers Cyborg, Shazam, Cyclotron, Samurai, Super Amigos Green Arrow, and more.

I've been looking for a Super Powers expert and I think I may have found my man. Several years ago, at the San Diego Con, I saw some large Jack Kirby concept art for the Super Powers line. IIRC, it was for a Desaad themed torture vehicle, something I can't quite imagine being sold to children. I'm very interested in seeing everything Jack contributed to the line and haven't found much information. I'd really like to see nice reproductions of all the art he did for it. I do have an issue of Tomart's Action Figure Digest that reproduces at very small size the concept sketch for Kalibak's Boulder Bomber, and I believe the following issue may have had more, but I didn't pick it up because I thought it was too hard to make out the detail of the picture in the issue I have.

If anyone has additional information, or even better, images, I'd love to see them. I've always wondered about the drastic change of skin tone for Steppenwolf and if that was by design or accident.

Any info will be greatly appreciated!

I got them here: http://www.journeys.com/product.aspx?id=175289

They call them "Legion of Doom" shoes, that's why I was surprised to see the Justice League on the other foot.

They both use that great SP era Garcia-Lopez art, and there's more on the box too. I'll have to take a picture of the top of the box as well.

I sent you an e-mail on the Shazam, Joe.

Peace,

Walmart has been out of the bookcases I purchase for the last 2 weeks. I'm planning on getting a couple more of those and some frames to "fill in" the hallway. Then I should have everything displayed.

As far as what I've shown there are 6 bookcases not in those new pics. I've been waiting on 2 packages from Brazil and one from Singapore with some neat stuff in them, but the Brazilian packages have been en route for a month now. :(

Peace,

Chip

Awesome shoes, Dan! I kinda figured they'd have the heroes on the other one, since that's the whole image in the style guide (and on a vintage puzzle). I'll definitely have to pick those up at some point.

Peace,

Chip

I thought the Heroes and Villains were 2 different pairs of shoes. Good to know I only need to make one purchase. (At $55 its kinda hard to justify buying multiple sets knowing I will probably never wear them more than once.)

You can smell it through the package, Jim.

Smells like fresh salmon and cherries. ;)

Peace,

Chip
