    Is the Superman showing up on facebook real? Because it looks bigger than the vintage figures. That means the retro vehicles won't be in scale with the original figures.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Not sure about the size of these but the Superman looks close to the original with the exception of the facial expression and longer cape.

    thanks for posting the link ,i think he looks great ,cant wait to get one lol

    looks close as you could get to the 1984 line
    other than as you say the cape and the positioning of the legs ,seems closer together than the originals slightly splayed stance ,even has the same s symbol as the original
    as to size hard to say but i think they maybe be in the same size range as the batman 66 line , not a deal breaker for me as long as they make them classic ill keep buying them

    fantastic bring them on

    Reminds me more of the Toy Biz figure than the Kenner one. Like a so-so-copy that's just a bit off. Kind of bootleggy. Also, hopefully the cape is just packed in the bubble like that and not attached that way. Because that don't look great.

    ^Exactly. This isn't awful, but it is...off. And certainly inferior looking to the original Kenner sculpt, which had tons of character.

    Not using the same JLGL (PBHN) style guide art for the package is an odd choice when it's also still in use on other retro DC products.

    If that's how the cape attaches, that doesn't look good.

    But, yeah, I agree just the on sculpt with today's digital sculpting advances you should be able to make something look at as least good as something from decades years ago. Because that just does not look as good as the Kenner figure. Seriously, how can looking as good as Kenner's 38 year old sculpts be so hard. Nothing has really matched them.

    Good news everyone. I've seen better pics of Superman. The figure is maybe a bit taller than vintage SP but close enough. The cape does clip around the neck like the vintage figures. Looks much nicer with the cape on right. The Batwing vehicle has also been found. Judging by the shelf tags in the pics it looks like these are hitting walmart.

    Photo credit to Jonathan Chouest from a FB McFarlane group- he says Superman was $10, Batwing was $20. The Batman and Robin are old figures.
