SUDDENLY I AM NINE YEARS OLD AGAIN or AWESOME!

I like DC Direct.  I like Mego.  I like the current wave of Mattel action figures.  My absolute favorite DC line of toys EVER was the Super Powers collection.

And I just found some commercials.

I placed the videos below the cut, because I like you.  I found a site years ago that had some great info on the line, including the original pitches and what could have been.  Check that out HERE

Both of those vehicles are sitting on top of the hutch of my desk right now.

Who keeps bailing out the Super Power team?

That’s right.  Superman. 

Boo yah!

Oh no!  Tennis balls!  Nothing can stop those.

They were really awesome toys.  God I wish I had a complete set.  I really do.  For a kids line in the eighties they were really close to the comics.

And they didn’t have crappy shields, which was important.

    I barely remember seeing them myself. All I remember is the, “Who wins, who loses; you decide!” tags.

    I need to find more.

    i totally remember that one commerical with the batmobile. i had a friend that had that thing… i distinctly recall the little claws that come out the front to grab the bad guys. not such a great design, that, as it meant that you had to get right up behind the villain in a car, but then stop before running them over, while they stand still long enough for the claw to grab them.
