Cooltoyreview has a good gallery of all the Toybiz figures with comparison photos for the Super Powers counterparts. I never realized how pathetic some of them look next to the Super Powers versions, especially Wonder Woman, GL, and Aquaman.



Yeah, Toy Biz really butchered these poor guys.

As time goes on, SP are really starting to take a beating in how the chemical migrate out of the plastic. I bet in 10 years there will be very few "perfect" examples left.


That's probably true, sadly. On the other hand it wouldn't surprise me if Super Powers figures made in the 80's outlast JLU figures made in the 2000's :roll:

No one has ever made purple SP Mr. Freeze repro helmets? I have two SP Mr. Freeze figures that are missing helmets.

Anybody? (crickets chirping)

I'd like to complete at least the one in better shape one day.

I just read this tale of woe... I can relate. I see simple Doctor who mistakes all the time. A third Doctor's sonic with a fourth or fifth. An eighth Doctor with a sonic from someone else. All the Doctor's sonic screwdrivers are very distinguishable either by design or color. I also see a few River Songs in her space suit loose and marked as complete but they have Captain Jack's sonic blaster and not River's. All common or believed to be harmless mistakes. I see it as people who really thing "What's the difference?"

I would honestly expect something more from people on this forum though when it comes to Super Powers figures.

HAS anyone ever made purple SP Mr. Freeze repro helmets? I have two SP Mr. Freeze figures that are missing helmets. Considering some things that folks recast it would surprise me if no one had.

Perhaps you should contact someone like batstew or glassman and see if they'd take on the job.
