Is it the lack of bad guys in the line of Superman toys or the lack of quality that you despise most?
Yes to both...Heroes need bad guys...any line of heroes without a single bad guy isn't worth a crap...And the sculpts on the figures are absolutely horrible...the ideas of lots of the toys (kryptonite lifting Superman, truck throwin' Superman, Superman fists, etc) are just poor in terms of playability...
bAh, well...lack of playability is a problem I have with most boy's toys. As a mother of both genders, I have to say that with the exception of the fine toys that are LEGO's, boy's toys, are nothing more than collectibles. After the kid gets out of the Thomas the Tank engine/Fisher Price age, there's precious little for the young man to play with to expand his imagination. The toys jump quickly from trucks and trains and tools to PS2 and Gameboy...for the girls, there's a lot to fuel their imaginations until the girls are much older than 10...and you can even find dolls that aren't whores if you pay attention. The only toy that's lacking for girls are LEGO's...unless she's a HP fan at an early age. My kids have way too many toys...but at least the girl still plays with hers from time to time, and creates really cool stories in which to involve her Polly Pockets or Pet Shops or Doggy DayCare or Barbies...but, sadly, the boy would rather just sit and play with his PS2.
