Hey Savant,
Sadly, I haven't really found anything at all which is strange because they had plenty the last time I was at the flea markets. I'll going to see if I can nab a couple of loose lots off eBay. The problem with that is that a lot of these have soft goods capes that can become stained or wrecked and it's hard to see but hopefully I'll have some luck.

Good idea, though it's such a pain to resort to the bay...my buddy has a second-hand toy shop in Milwaukee, WI and he has about 15 Super Powers figs, all in very good shape (and he'll cut you a good deal I'm sure!)...if you'd like his name and number let me know; he's a good guy that's going through a rough patch of chemo right now but thankfully he's done on Friday.

The good things about shops like these is at least the money goes to a good person and (sorry to say, not the faceless drones on eBay).

I saw these and had to have them immediately! One even came with the in lured Aquaman mini-figure toy...my buddy didn't know it was in there and neither did I until I got home a few hours later.

FYI - if you'd like the info, act quickly cuz the figs he has are great and may not last long.

The fabric capes can be troublesome without seeing them in person, but I've had some success in regards to the good condition and accurate accounts of the fabric...I got Red and Captain Marvel (NEVER going to call him SHAZAM...) and although the capes were obviously aged but they were in good shape

Hey Savant, sorry to hear about your friend, man! That's pretty rough.

Yeah, shoot me his name and number and/or e-mail. He'll have to be willing to ship it out to icebox Canada, though. LOL. And thanks for the heads up.

Split it into two threads so we didn't inadvertently hijack Savant's collection thread. :batlol:
