Well, now that the holidays are over, it’s back to business. This week’s Forgotten Friday is all about one of the coolest toy lines from my childhood: Kenner’s Super Powers Collection.
I remember seeing an advertisement on the back cover of a comic book I had as a kid and immediately had to have the whole collection, especially Flash!
The line consisted of all of the major DC Comics heroes and villians as well as a few hardly known characters. There were three series released all over the period of three years, 1984, 1985, and 1986. There was also some real nicely done vehicles and a beautiful Hall of Justice playset.
I had almost the entire collection including the mail away Clark Kent figure and Steppenwolf.
DC made a comic book tie in and Hanna Barbera developed two of my favorite toons of all time; Super Friends, the Legendary Super Powers Show and The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians.
I would love to collect these and gather the entire collection but many of the figures, especially carded ones go for some pretty big bucks today. Here is a nice link to a fan site that shows the majority of the line.
There are days when I seriously miss my childhood!
