SDCC 2016 Exclusives

All toys begin with the PROTOTYPE! This Superman and Batman figure replicates the appearance of a first look or “first shot” action figure as it would have been developed during the manufacturing process. A true rarity that is highly sought after in the toy collecting world!

For those of you who have been lucky enough to live during the Kenner Toy craze of the 1980’s then you should be familiar with these beauties.

Kenner was responsible for some of the greatest, most collectible toys the 80’s had to offer. 1984’s The Super Powers Collection was no exception. The hugely successful line showcased DC’s mightiest heroes and villains! Batman, The Joker, Green Lantern and more were all represented.

Gentle Giant and 3D Systems Inc. used an original mint condition Super Powers figure to make a highly accurate digital model with the use of three dimensional data capture cameras. This digital data was then enlarged to 12” and printed using top of the line 3D Systems machines. Making the final piece an extremely accurate scaled replica, right down to our hero’s iconic fabric cape!
