Mattel The Batman ShadowTek Superman figure (2007)

Mattel released a series of action figures based on the animated series The Batman, which ran a total of 65 episodes from 2004 to 2008.  Among them was this ShadowTek Superman figure that was oddly named a “Superman and Clark Kent” figure.  I say “oddly” because the figure is just of Superman and does not transform in any way to Clark Kent.  The figure itself is…

This is the 1996 re-issue of the VHS tape that contains episodes from the 1966 animated series…
