Hey Shabby,

Here's a photo of Chip's that he posted a while back, comparing a few different Supermen. From left to right, it's the Lili Ledy (Mexican) Supes, the Kenner Supes, and the Super Amigos (Argentinan) version.

Here's a link to the thread where he posted it, over on the Kennersuperpowers board: http://com5.runboard.com/bkennersuperpowers.t28335

Hope this helps!

Okay, I guess I have the Lily Ledy and American versions. Is the Lily Ledy one significantly rare? I picked it up on a Super Powers lot on Ebay awhile back and it immediately stood out as different because of the darker blue and red. It also lacks a date stamp on his inner thigh, so I considered that it was a foreign variant. Do the Super Amigos versions have any COO markings? I have several Lily Ledy vintage Star Wars figures because of their unique paintjobs, but was not aware until now that the Super Powers line had similar LL paint variants. I thought Super Amigos was the only notable variant.

Did Chip do anymore comparison photos like that? Or is there a list of the notable differences between Lily Ledy, American, and Super Amigos paintjobs/COOs?

Did you look/notice if your Superman had a "COO" in the lower back. It could be an Estrela S.A. out of Brazil as well.

Yes both Pacipa and Playful Super Amigos have COO markings on the inner thighs, just like the US versions, except Cyborg I believe.

I'll throw this disclaimer in as well though...
All the ones that I've had come through my hands at least!

No COO on the back or the inner thigh or anywhere else on his body. Its color scheme matches the one in Chip's photo, so I'm sure it's a Lily Ledy.

Was just checking to make sure it wasn't overlooked by accident!

Congrats on the find!

Hey Super Powers freaks, my new blog about Kenner's old Robin Hood line has got lots of Super Powers shizz in it, too. Just in case you didn't already know the connection. :D
