Auction Question - ToyBiz / Super Powers Batman Connection? Missing link?


Alright guys, let's try this out.

I'm honestly tempted to bid on this item - I'm not just outing it to out it - but I'm really not sure what the heck it is that I'm looking at. Check out the auction:

It's a large set of ToyBiz Batman stuff. Only there's one thing that seems REALLY off to me - look at the fifth photo. It's a ToyBiz Batman, sealed and carded... with a black Super Powers Batman head. So what the heck is this thing? Is this a prototype? Did ToyBiz jack yet another Kenner piece for reproduction? Has anybody ever seen one of these? Is it worth looking in to?

There's 38 hours left on the auction, and 1 bid, but I'd really like to hear what you guys think this thing is! Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

[sign in to see URL] interesting! I've never seen a Toybiz Batman like that. Is it just me, or does it look off though? Possibly popped the heads and resealed it?

batmania2 brought this to my attention, I didn't realize it was part of this auction. I noticed it did not have the "contents" text on the right hand side, thought it might be a foreign card of sorts. But Reid you're right, it does look like it could have been resealed at the top right. Without a more full image it's really tough to tell.

Looks like Batman lost his neck!

Have you emailed the seller and asked for a picture of the back of the card or where it was he got them?

To me, it looks like there is a waffle pattern on the top of the bubble, can't tell about the rest of the bubble though. However something does look wrong with the right side of the card/bubble area, kind of looks like tape to me. Curious why only this Toybiz/SP Batman has a yellow bubble.

The punch appears to be located in the same spot on every card. The only difference being the "contents" part is missing. The card could be an early version where after it was decided to add a "contents" section.

After taking a look at the other photos and zooming in, it appears the "contents" part is indeed there, just not visible in the other picture. I too see the "waffling" in the bubble, it's really tough to tell. It's possible this is just some really rare anomaly! I have several versions of this figure with different heads and none look like the SP head.

Wow, that's bizarre. Don't know if its real or not, but if so, it's pretty strange looking. I agree with Ken. On that body, it looks like Batman has no neck. Interesting find.

Hahahaha, man, the perils of outing an auction... I didn't really get the kind of answer I was looking for from any of you, which is cool - I guess that means none of you know any more than I do about this bizarre piece. I ddn't end up bidding on it. But it was interesting to watch nonetheless - originally it was offered at $300 - no bids. $280 - no bids. It's now about 4-5 weeks later, I post it and mention it, and all of a sudden it SKYROCKETS to $370ish! I can only assume that mentioning it here brought it up a bunch, and that somebody here got it... Which is awesome, congratulations and let us know what it is you end up getting! ...but man, talk about inflation!

Re: Auction Question - ToyBiz / Super Powers Batman Connection? Missing link?


    I'm the one who won the Toy Biz lot. The Toy Biz DC Super Heroes and Batman line is my second all-time favorite next to Super Powers. I hunted like crazy in 1989 when the Toy Biz Black Batman came out and was sold out everywhere! So I had to have this lot and find out about that Toy Biz Batman with the Super Powers head!
   I received the Toy Biz lot early Monday morning but had no time to look it over carefully until early Tuesday morning around 1AM. Well, the bubble was yellowed (already knew that) and it looked like it had been re-sealed (already suspected that), but how could I really tell without opening the bubble? I took out my jeweler's magnifier and saw the answer was right under my nose, or should I say Batman's nose. A very tiny almost imperceptible chip on the very tip of Batman's nose showed a blue spot. A Super Powers Batman blue. A FAKE! Gotta admit,this is a real slick way to sell something.
