    ^I haven't had any issues with my canopy, and opened and closed it quite a bit when I first bought it to take pics. So your mileage may vary.

    Hey everyone,
    I almost never post but I’m super excited about this Super Powers reboot and I’ve had the opportunity to speak with a McFarlane representative recently. They had a couple interesting things to share about the Super Powers line:

    -There are no plans to re-release the original Kenner figures (the way that Hasbro has with the Star Wars Retro Collection). They said if that’s what people are expecting then we’re gonna be disappointed. We will continue to see characters/designs from that era (like the Wave 1 Superman) but they will be all new sculpts.

    -Everyone at McFarlane is super excited about the line and they come to the different message boards to see which characters we want, so keep those lists coming.

    -They asked me what character I was hoping to get the most, and I said an 80’s era Catwoman. They replied with “I can’t tell you if she’s coming or not, but I can tell you that you’re gonna be a happy man.”

    -I also expressed interest in some of the Hanna-Barbera characters like the Wonder Twins. He said that they’re definitely not slated for the 1st year, but that they are well aware that a lot of adult collectors are hoping for them to show up to fill holes in the original line.

    -Unrelated to Super Powers we talked about the 89 Batman line that they’re gonna be doing. Apparently they’re still working to secure the Nicholson likeness rights. It’s available but expensive, and they’re trying to weigh whether the price they’ll have to pay will be recouped in sales. Personally, aside from the 7” movie line, I’d love to see the movie characters sprinkled into the Super Powers line the way that Toybiz did in the 90’s.

    Hopefully this line continues McFarlane’s track record of constant new figures showing up in the marketplace!
    -Artie

    It has been known that McFarlane was'nt going to to re-release copies of all the original figures like other companies are doing with Star Wars ,and G. I Joes. The next figures up are New 52 Wonder Woman, Nightwing and Deathstroke.

    They probably won't show up there. According to my SW collecting son, a lot of the WM US exclusives come to Gamestops in Canada.

    yeah i get that i just thought mcfarlane's excitement about the line and the teams engagement with forums ,the planning of more female figures beyond wonder woman ie the mention of 80s catwoman ,and the mention of 89 batman was worth mentioning

    I'm quite curious--and of course a bit concerned--about what Aquaman they will do. If we end up with a Rebirth version, I'll be relieved.

    I saw TBWL figure today but no Flash or Zoom.

    Catwoman and 89 Batman are big news, but I did'nt see anything else about more female figures and McFarlane does'nt think female figures sell that well in an interview I read. I am good with new stuff and no Samuri, Gold Pharoah, Cyclotron , Tyr etc.
