Shazam: Kenner Canada 3rd Series 33-Back (Offerless)
Kenner Canada released 31 Super Powers figures in carded bi-lingual packaging to comply with Canada's bi-lingual packaging laws. In comparison Kenner released 33 carded figures for the US market. Cyborg and Steppenwolf represent the two characters never released in Canadian packaging. While Kenner Canada did not offer the "Free Clark Kent" promotion, the figure was available in Canada via mail-away through Canada Fancy's Superman French Fries promotion. Kenner Canada made Steppenwolf available via a mail-away promotion similar to Kenner's Steppenwolf mail-away offer.
Kenner Canada, like Kenner, produced a single 33-Back card style for the 3rd series action figure assortment. Unlike Kenner, Kenner Canada did not re-release any 1st or 2nd series characters on 33-Back packaging. Nine of the ten third series action figures were released on bi-lingual Kenner Canada packaging. Cyborg, as previously mentioned, did not see release on Kenner Canada packaging. While Shazam is widely regarded as being one of the most difficult 3rd series Kenner figures to locate in unopened condition, procuring the Kenner Canada version is relatively simple.
