Batman, Robin and Batgirl appear on this puzzle... I wish I had a better photo of it! To be honest, until I started searching for Super Powers items, I had no idea there were so many SP items aside from the Kenner figures!
That's a very nice Batman frame-tray puzzle in the Super Powers line!
Here's another frame-tray puzzle in which Batman appears, but which I also wish I had a better photo of!
I think this custom "Super Powers" Riddler may be the best Riddler figure I've ever seen! Some of you may know that while there wasn't a Super Powers Riddler produced in the USA, there was one made in South America as part of the "Super Amigos" line.
That's a very well-done custom Two-Face, too!
Batman's the only character on the actual Super Powers flashlight here... I wonder if any of the other characters appeared on other SP flashlights?
Until recently, the Super Powers merchandising juggernaut of the 1980s was the last hurrah for DC character merchandising... like Marvel's Secret Wars line, there would be a huge variety of products using the Super Powers name, but the backbone, arguably, would be the action figures!
Here's Batman from Kenner's Super Powers line, in the large and small card:
And here's a Super Powers Batman Painting Set!
And the last item today is this set of Batman sunglasses (yes, I know, the lens popped out on these on one side... plus Batman sunglasses are inherently silly)!
Soakies are what they called these figural bubble bath bottles! Cool, aren't they?
I find it amusing that this centerpiece uses character art from Super Friends with the Super Powers logo! And speaking of Super Powers, after two days of comic art, we'll be getting into the Super Powers line bigtime, and not just the Kenner figures!
Yes, even drinking glasses were part of the Super Powers line, so consider this a preview of it!
The daily blog featuring photos of Batman-related merchandise going up through the 1970s, with a few 1980s items thrown in here and there! Your comments are welcomed!
Please note that I do not have any of these items for sale, and the vast majority of them are items I do not own at all. The photos were collected from eBay auctions over the years, and I wanted to share them with you all!
If you're interested in tracking down any of these items, I wish you luck, and hope that these posts help give you the information you need to find them offered on eBay! If you do purchase any of these items as a result of these posts, I'd love to hear about them -- and if you have better photos of anything I post here, I'd love to see them, too, and share them with my readers! You can email photos to me at waffyjon at comcast dot net. And if you link to a Batcave Trophy Room post, please let me know, and I'll add your blog to the blogroll!
