Power Man Bootleg Superman Toy
This is one of my favorite Superman figures. Why? Well, first you gotta admire the cheesy artwork on the card. Whoa Boy!!! Superman is drawn (quite poorly) with blonde hair!!! Ha! I just love that! Now this particular figure is just a cheap hollow plastic figure.Kind of like the Power Figures Superman elsewhere on this site. The "S" logo on the figures chest is identical to the Power Figures Superman. This guy even suffers from the typical poor paint job. I mean, Superman has a GREEN belt! But at least they got the body to resemble the muscular Superman we all know and love.
Now by sheer coincidence, I happen
to have the figure that this bootleg toys is taken from. Here is a pic
of the real Superman figure and the bootleg Power Man. The figures are
exactly the same. The differences? well, the blue of Superman's costume,
the bootleg figure's shoulders are painted and the direction the head is
looking. Also the there is a big difference in the quality of the plastic
used to make the figures.
Here is a close up of Power Man Superman
Okay, so he looks kind of pissed off. Wouldn't you if you were sealed up in plastic? But at least this guy's face resembles Superman's face including the little curl of hair on his forehead. For anybody who cares, this figure stands ten inches tall. His cape is just a piece of cheap plastic. This figure's hands are molded in fists. The paint job really is quite poor. I love this figure!!! Don't ask why. I really can't explain it.
Oh, and yes, there is a Power
Man Spiderman (elsewhere on this site) and a Power Man Batman.
