Tango,

These were some of the coolest figs around, with each of the 32 figures having an action feature of some sort; truly awesome and something we won't see again. If you can get your hands on one and see for yourself you'll definitely understand.

This is a fantastic playset and even though the Young Justice HoJ facade is nice, it'll never beat this!

I really wish Kenner would've made Darkseid's playset, that would've been such a cool piece to accompany this.

What the... that's AWESOME! :batshock: I've got to seriously get my hands on some of these figures. I've seen them at flea markets here and there. Online prices are pretty high.

Yeah, you can make a killing at flea markets; provided you find them!

My cousin found his Super Powers batmobile at a flea market a couple years ago for $10 and in great shape...I did notice someone on eBay is selling a couple SP figs on a moderate conditon card back for a starting bid of $9.99; but those won't last long

I believe it. I see them go for 6" figure prices for just the common guys. Hopefully I'll find a cheap lot. Might do some customs, too. This looks like a fun set to do customs for. :batgrin:

I've seen a mess of customs using these same molds as well as the Toy Biz line that followed SP...then there are the Argentinian ones and the ITW figs (even though they're actual molds, a lot look like customs made by a 5 year old!)!that tried to finish off Wave 4 of the Kenners Super Powers; I'd like to get those but they're hard to find and pricey too.

Seems like a lot of the figures go for quite a bit on eBay and even in lot sales and some of those look like they've been dragged across the concrete (probably were). I'm going to comb a couple of the local flea markets this weekend, though. Should have some luck there, I hope. :batgrin:

Hey Acid!

Any luck on your flea market hunts?

I'll be going to Appleton, WI on Saturday with a buddy to check out the action there...
