Line: WGSH
Toy Execution: Custom Artwork in Dida Displays

Author Notes: To create more play value and extend the life of the WGSH line, Mego creates a playset for Superman, inspired by the comic book layout and artwork. This is still a work in progress, as I'm awaiting some more Dida pieces to finalize the construction and placement of certain panels. This will be a fully enclosed placeset with fold down cover (creating more floor surface for play) and a carry handle on top.

The splash front (which will eventually be moved to the large fold down cover...right now it's in the back panel):


When the cover is folded down, the Key Door is revealed. The door, when attached, hold the 2 Dida Triangles in place inside the playset shell. When the door is removed (opened), the triangles can fold out and onto the door/floor.

The amount of detail is amazing. This would've been sold out in no time had Mego made this
