LEX LUTHOR



 

The Argentinian company Pacipa produced and distributed its Super Powers line, called Super Amigos, for the South American market. The Super Amigos line, consisting of 15 total characters documented thus far, includes nine 1st series characters, two 2nd series characters, three 3rd series characters, and an exclusive Riddler (also released by Play Ful). The Pacipa Super Amigos cardbacks feature Hawkman and Wonder Woman, however I've yet to see carded examples of these two characters in Pacipa packaging. Vehicles, like the Delta Probe-1, rounded out the Super Amigos line. The figures produced by Pacipa do not meet the same strict quality paint application, plastic, and molding standards as the Kenner versions.

While Pacipa's main packaging character image mimics the one found on Kenner and other international companies' packaging, Pacipa's Lex Luthor figure exhibits a few striking differences. The head is cast in a different color plastic, however the armor quite possibly exhibits the most sriking differences. In addition to color differences, the paint application on the armor's emblem varies dramatically compared to Kenner's figure.
