I’m just going to come right out and say it: I think the Toy Biz DC Superheroes figures are great. 

I know this may not be a popular opinion.  I’ve seen fights break out over it.  Internet fights, so as far as I know no fisticuffs were involved, but fights nonetheless.  I hesitate to call it a hot-button issue, but it’s at least a topic for discussion in certain circles.

I’m certainly not saying that the Toy Biz DC figures are better than Kenner’s Super Powers figures.  I’m not interested in comparing the two, to be honest.  Well, some mild comparisons, similarities and differences, might be made, but that’s not my goal.  I’m saying that – looking at the Toy Biz DC Superheroes figures strictly on their own – they’re great.

I’m a bit late on getting these posted, but better late than never!  

Back in August we showed you collector Brad Rader’s cool custom Super Powers display where he built a custom shelf, and blew up the figure line up for the Super Powers line up from one of the 33-back SP cards for his display.  The then put all of the coresponding Mattel DC Universe Classics figures next to the Super Powers figures. 

Brad sent us even more updated pictures as he wanted to include his newly acquired SDCC DCUC Swamp Thing (even though Swampy is only an ‘honorary’ member of his Super Powers collection and was never planed to be included in the vintage line) and his display of Super Powers mini-comics.   We give you part II of Brad’s impressive collection display:

 

 

 

Thanks again to Brad for letting us showcase his display and collection.
