Mattel’s final farewell to the 6-inch DC Comic universe action figures is really something special.
Each Mattel Super Powers figures comes in ’80s-era Super Powers-inspired packaging, as one would expect. The cards are not only faithfully reproduced, but Mattel was savvy enough to pack in the build-a-figure Kalibak pieces separately for those who wanted to keep the figures carded. The cardbacks are a fantastic homage to the Kenner Super Powers line’s final year, including the aborted “fourth year” additions.
While no new tools outside of trickster Mr. Mxyzptlk were created, there is a real nice incentive to assembling a Super Powers team as well as a Super Powers decoed Kalibak. Look for these to show up on Mattycollector.com in the near future!
