ROBIN



  

Super Powers action figures were sold throughout a myriad of countries world-wide. Smaller than normal blister cards featuring tri-lingual text were produced for distribution in some European countries. The packaging's rear face layout differes markedly from that found on US Kenner packaging. The lower left hand corner contains four international licensees; Clipper and General Mills Jueguetes, S.A. for example.

As if the packaging size and cardback layout differences weren't exciting enough, the in-pack premiums and corresponding offer stickers provide collectors with a whole host of variations/combinations to track down. Premiums packaged within the bubble and located behind the action figure include: mini-comic only, poster only, mini-comic and poster together, and lastly no premium whatsoever. Adhesive stickers are sometimes found adhered to the blister card's front to advertise the free poster inclusion, but some carded examples containing the posters do not contain the advertising sticker. Documented tri-lingual Robin packaging variations include:

Many of the tri-lingual carded figures featured on the site that exhibit the "mini-comic & no "free poster" sticker combination contain a small German text label adhered to the upper right hand packaging corner, like the Batman seen here, however this particular Robin does not contain one of those labels.

The mini-comics packaged within trilingual packaging contain unique qualities compared to those found in Kenner and Kenner Canada packaging. The trilingual mini-comics utilize much higher quality and much glossier paperstock. The action figures contained within European tri-lingual packaging do not exhibit visual differences compared to figures sold in the US and Canada. To date it appears only the first twelve 1st series characters were sold on this unique packaging style.
