Super Powers Alfred Pennyworth Custom Figure

One the biggest issues with the Super Powers Collection, or practically any other action figure collection for that matter, is the lack of figures for the supporting cast, secondary characters, or even background characters.

Review: Kenner Super Powers Hall of Justice Playset

Its the Super Powers Collection Hall of Justice playset! Although early concept artwork originally envisioned the Hall of Justice as merely a figure storage case, by the time it reached production it had been expanded into a full fledged playset. However, some storage case elements did carry over. The "teleportation" and "revitalization" chambers give the playset added value, allowing it to become a storage case for up to 10 Super Powers figures.
