HELP! Not sure what batman I have


]Hi guys , I'm pretty new to these boards . I recently started collecting super powers again and I need help regarding a batman.
He doesn't have any copyright info on him anywhere on his body.
No bat symbol on chest . The figure itself is in amazing condition and it doesn't look like it's been worn off. It looks like it was never there.
Compared to my other batman all muscle placement head to toe is the same , only his belt is much more defined. As I said the figure is in great great shape , but I'm hoping some one can tell me what I have exactly and what it might be worth ?
Some have said first shot , lil ledy ? Not sure what either means but hopefully one of you can help ?

Not sure how to attach pictures, I'll look into that. In the mean time I'll email anyone pics who thinks they might know . any help is greatly appreciated !
He's been sitting in the back of my closet for months lol
Thanks

Re: HELP! Not sure what batman I have


Welcome Justin. The Batman is most likely a made in mexico batman. You can find out more information on him here:[sign in to see URL]

I would imagine the chest emblem has just worn away or perhaps was an error and never applied. Ledy also had no coo markings I believe and the way to tell if it is ledy is with the paint on it. A ledy expert would be more helpful, but I think the face of a ledy was a bit darker and the blue was maybe shinier. Anyway, welcome aboard and look around. We are a great group of guys. Be sure to intoroduce yourself in the member introduction section at the top.

I should add the possibility of it being an actual first shot are not zero, but unless you know for a fact it came from a kenner source; I would lean more towards the made in mexico version.

Thanks , that helped a lot.
Would this batman have the same value as a regular superpowers batman ?

I can't find anything for member introduction either ? It's probably right in front of me somewhere.

Yeah , the site has been great for me so far.

Re: HELP! Not sure what batman I have


Best bet is post a photo if you wanna be really sure. Photobucket is pretty user friendly.

Yeah , sorry I realize it's a hard question to ask without pictures lol
I'm a complete noob to any of this .
I'm working on that photobucket thing but I must have done it wrong because I still don't see the actual images.

Re: HELP! Not sure what batman I have


I give up with trying to add pictures. Lol
Assuming it is a Mexico version , keeping in mind that it is without cape .
Would $40 be close to value ? Or is there no market for something like this ? OR should I be trying to add a cape before selling / trading ?
He's in great condition , even the plastic seems so new . No signs of wear or age on him

Again I appreciate everyone's help , I'm aware Im making this much harder without posting pics to show also

Re: HELP! Not sure what batman I have


Justin, based on the glossy blue paint and lack of copyright information, I'm of the opinion this is indeed a "Made in Mexico" figure that came from Kenner packaging. I think the logo has likely worn off. That's going to impact the value and with the missing cape I'd say $40 is much too high value-wise. The Made in Mexico figure variant is a neat one, but it's not all that well known. Folks here are aware of it, because this forum is filled with members with what I consider advanced knowledge of the line. Your average collector who just wants a Super Powers Batman figure probably isn't aware of the variation and likely doesn't care which version he or she acquires.
