Gulliver released an eight figure series under the "Super Powers Collection" banner. Each blister card measures
much smaller than the familiar Kenner packaging. While Kenner included a mini-comic
premium with each figure, Gulliver opted for a poster premium; a characteristic shared with some European trilingual
packaged figures. Gulliver figures all lack both the hallmark "power action" features and jointed legs. Additonally,
the paint applications on each figure are generally considered subpar. While the Gulliver figures do bare ever-so-slight
resemblance to their Kenner counterparts (some moreso than others), the differences above coupled with an overall
visual disparity lessen the possibility of mistaking one for the other provided a collector possesses a basic familiarity
with the Kenner line.
The Gulliver lines consists of the following action figures:
Kenner produced Robin with a fabric, soft goods by industry terminology, cape. Gulliver on the other hand opted for
a lower cost vinyl-like cape. The other two caped heroes, Batman and Superman, both use similar material for their
cape. The Gulliver Robin blister card is particularly noteworthy because it uses a different character image from
that found on Robin's Kenner packaging.
- Captain Ray
- The Flash
- Green Lantern
- Wonder Woman
Gulliver carded figures garner much higher prices in today's market compared to years past, however all figures
sell for much less than the line's hallmark exclusive figure, El Capitan Rey, which can sell for multiple times
the price of the other seven characters. El Capitan Rey's presence in the Gulliver line makes assembling a
complete carded Gulliver set both a challenging and expensive endeavor.
