    First gen UK Apes are indeed a cool oddball release!… beware, being these are pretty easy cardbacks to knock-off, I've run across several *fakes* over the years.

    I see the second series Palitoy fakes but I've never seen ones for the first gen.

    ^^ Around 2010-11 there was a Euro (maybe Germany) seller with the whole line up (a couple times over) on repro cards advertised as originals. They looked good, too good, and every once in a while one pops up still being sold as vintage.

    Ah I see. Interesting.

    This is probably a dumb question, but is the Reeve Superman in a resized suit compared to the Parkdale, or is the suit stretchy enough to fit various figures?

    Not a dumb question at all, but the suits are definitely different. The comic head Supes is on the standard Mego 12" figure, and his torso and shoulder span are much thinner than the muscular version of the body, and both outfits are skin tight on the respective figures. The 13" Power Action Supes is wearing an even larger version of the outfit. Interestingly, there seems to be variations on the comic head Supes' suit, both sewn and non-sewn belts are possible. I think I've only seen sewn belts on the Reeves muscle version body and the Denys Fisher Power Action's suit has a non-sewn belt.

    Thank you! I've been thinking more about 12" Megos since the meet, and I appreciate the information.
