"SUPER POWERS COLLECTION - CATWOMAN" PROTOTYPE ACTION FIGURE.


At some point I read this was not an actual Super Powers prototype. [url][sign in to see URL]

And I apologize if this has already been discussed here, I used the search function and couldn't find anything.

Is that a real super powers prototype that sold way back :

I've spoken directly to Kenner folks about this and the consensus is "Not Super Powers". Additionally, the 4th series pitch material further supports that. Plus, the blue urethane doesn't match up with the materials being used at the time, so that's another knock against it.

To further back up what Michael said, I've heard two things: that this was for an aborted DC line that would have been concurrent with the Dark Knight Collection (which the TV Flash was supposedly also a part of) or it was a first try for the Batman Returns Catwoman made before they had any movie artwork.

It was definitely an early 90s proto. That Catwoman outfit wasn't even designed until after Super Powers was cancelled, and David Mazzuchelli specifically said he was never approached as the designer for toy royalties.

Looks like copies of the hardcopy of this cat woman are for sale. Seller said he bought a box of comic books at a garage sale and these where in there.

Anyone have thoughts on this?

It looks like a REALLY rough homemade copy to me.

Here you go Rich. Looks like a crude copy to me, and as said already this was not a super powers prototype.

Says he has seven of them that he's listing one at a time. Seems like a nice scam to me. Probably had all of these copies made and knows they're not Super Powers figures prototypes or authentic. Box of comics, LOL.
