UPDATE: They Appear to be back in stock and now able to check out. Good luck.


UPDATE: In typical Walmart fashion the website is seemingly not letting people check out once they have added the items to their cart. Likely a glitch with the site. I would just periodically check the links below and see if they allow you to check out later in the day.

It's not the same scale as the original line. The 80s line was 3.75" scale but the figures were scaled correctly, so Joker, Brainiac, and Darkseid were much taller than Batman or Superman and Penguin was shorter than all the rest. This new retro line is 5" scale which is why most of the standard characters are much larger than their 80s counterparts. The fact that Batman Who Laughs is the same height as 80s Joker is a fluke. Mcfarlane can't make this line the same size as the original because Spinmasters holds the 3.75" license, so 5" is as close as he could get and not get sued.

No, the original Super Powers were not 3-3/4 scale. 3-3/4 scale were GI Joes, Kenner Star Wars, etc. and an average human vintage Super Powers character (like Green Lantern or Flash for example) looks to be around an inch taller than an average human in those other mentioned 3-3/4 lines. Side by side a standard height 3-3/4 Joe or Star Wars figure is over a head shorter than an average vintage Kenner Super Powers figure and even one of the shortest of the Kenner Super Power figures like Robin are taller than the extra tall 3-3/4 figures like Kenner Chewbacca. (and I just went an grabbed multiple examples of all of these lines and put them side by side just to make sure Im not misremembering). So vintage Super Powers were significantly larger than 3-3/4 scale and somewhere more akin to 4.5 or 5 scale.

Now I agree these new figures seem to be a smidge too big (havent seen them in person yet but its clear from pictures) and I assume youre right that McFarlane probably had to make them a tad bigger due to the size ranges that are designated to be in Spin Master license territory. But if anything its more like maybe the vintage scale was closer to 4.5 while Todds is closer to 5 (which is an unfortunate discrepancy but no where near as far off as 3-3/4 vs 5 would be ).

So how about a Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, & Punchline? A little estrogen won't hurt one bit. Then Wonder Woman, Batgirl, & Super Girl.

Hopefully, well get some female figures in this line. Wonder Woman was the only one in the SP line. Give us Batgirl, Supergirl, and Catwoman for starters.

The original line was 4.5, not 3.75. Compare any original Super Powers figure to a figure from a 3.75 line and the Super Powers figure will be significantly larger.

And while the McFarlane figures may be listed by Walmart as 5, this just seems to be shorthand marketing. The Fresh Monkey Fiction Longbox Heroes line, also intended to be compatible with Super Powers, is listed by BBTS as 5 while FMF themselves call it A retro styled 4.5 Comic Book Action Figures line.

The reality of why the McFarlane figures are not in scale is much simpler then licensing constraints. McFarlane does not know how to do scale. Within their own Multiverse line scale is all over the place, so it is no surprise that they have the same issues here.

I really hate that the Batman who laughs is in this series, just seems so wrong, because it's such a new character, but I get it, it's super popular people love that Batman who Laughs, I mean it does look like it works in this line surprisingly, still for some reason I can't stand that they put him in here.

I assume 5 is what they consider to be the scale of the original Super Powers line. So this is cohesive with our vintage collection. Thats the only scale that makes sense in this case

Why does flash look so much bigger than og flash?

Nosferatuman62172 - 2022-08-16 @ 3:34 pm

Surprisingly, the Batman Who Laughs works surprisly well in this format. I'm really looking forward to getting him. The Flash looks good too. I'd love to see a picture of the four heroes in this line together.
